I totally agree with you. A big ice cream is certainly a "sweet" present, and it can help to make us feel better. I like mint ice cream,too... better if it has chocolate chips in!!!
How do you call it? We call it "After eight" as the famous chocolate truffles!
Cut flowers don't make me happy but I always appreciate the thought.
I prefer walking and smelling wildflowers when I am walking in my loved mountains.
CIao, all the best!
