‘Tis the season to give and to give locally

As you know the Sweet Shop is all about giving, our tip jar and proceeds support local schools.  Support your local community and shop sweetly!

Some of our local favorites that make wonderful gifts for this season... 
Clairesquares are decadent shortbread bars layered with caramel & chocolate - best bar EVER & best kept secret. A sweet delight you won’t want to share!

For those that might have some traditional English, Irish, Scottish roots, we offer Claire’s special handcrafted seasonal Plum Pudding aka Christmas Pudding. Warm it up and serve with brandy butter...
 Brandy Butter Recipe - 4oz soft butter, 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar & 3-5 tablespoons of Brandy, beat together, Voila!
Your guests will be sure to be a fan!

Handmade Neo Cocoa Truffles, the "hearts" of the truffle in Caramel Sea Salt Milk Chocolate or Espresso Dark Chocolate Marshmallow. A serious yummy gift to indulge & won’t be forgotten.

Give Verve Coffee Beans for the coffee connoisseur in your life. Sermon, Buena Vista Dark & Vancouver Decaf beans are always in stock. Of course we can order any other Verve beans roasted just for you!

So much more to give, impress someone with a box of delicious Poco Dolce Tiles, 479 Popcorn, both made in San Francisco or Alice Stick Cookies from Los Altos.

At the Sweet Shop, we take pride on always finding "something" for everyone so for the wee ones in your lives, pick up an organic cotton onesie. TOO CUTE!

Make your own gift, stop by and fill up a bag with their favorite sweets!

Avoid the chaos at the malls, forget online shopping, shipping costs & shop locally where Life is Sweet!

Sweet Shop Recycles their Bottle Caps

For the last couple of years every time we pop open a drink for our customers we have saved your bottle cap. Not knowing what we would ever do with them.
At one of our celebrations we put some in a jar and had a guessing game to win a prize!

We still have endless bottle caps and of course acquire more every day! Thanks to our lovely Laura, she took the initiative to create something pretty cool with our caps…. Check out these lovely handmade photo frames now available at the shop. Makes a great gift & remember all proceeds will go to the schools!

We would love to hear your ideas for recycling our bottle caps, send us an email to sweet-info@sweetshoplosaltos.com
