See's Candies Forever Gift Certificate

I found this See's Candies Forever Gift Certificate in one of my mom's dresser drawers. It's a Forever Gift Certificate because there's no expiration date.  It's also less gross than finding a fifteen year old box of chocolate.


In L.A. we get and regift boxes of See's on every occasion. Affordable and presently packaged, it's the I-Thought-About-You-But-Not-Too-Much gift. There's a See's at every mall. 




The bonbons come in mixed batches so you learn to identify the favorites quickly, like Bordeaux (buttercream and sugar, round with sprinkles) and scotchmallow® honey (marshmellow and honey, round and unmarked). Then you won't get stuck with the duds (peanut nougat, rectangular).

I'm not sure if my mom was saving this for a special regifting occasion or just stockpiling. But I feel like I need to redeem my two pounds of chocolate today, at least before the garage eats it up again. I wouldn't want my mom to have saved a forever gift certificate for nothing.

This is the sweetest sentiment ever! On another note, I have been inspired by this blog to take up Chinese lessons. Gotta learn how to read and write in my ancestral language. Just signed up today!
