I would keep them in their airtight packaging until the day before. They’ll still probably stick (Sugar is finnicky) but it may not be as bad as if they had been in the boxes for months.

You could also try wrapping them up nicely in airtight packaging and putting the whole thing in the box so you get your two for one. Fresh lollipops & they didn’t stick.

are the 1kg packages they come in airtight? leave them in those for as long as possible. It takes a good few days for them to stick together, depending on climate.

It should work out for you to put the lollies in the boxes and then pack the boxes in airtight containers. Depending on what materials you have around your house and what storage space you have, another alternative would be to store the filled boxes in ziplock bags. In your place I can see myself doing ziplocks inside airtight containers –  I acknowledge this is probably overkill, but sometimes overkill is what you need for peace of mind.

PS, do you mean the kind of personalized boiled lollies where your name/design/whatever has been embedded right through a cylinder that is then cut into individual candies? So. Jealous.

I don’t mean a ziplock each! You could pack quite a few boxes into a larger-size bag. It would probably be more than one bag (unless you used one of the giant ones meant for blankets etc), but definitely not 120. The bags would also definitely be reuseable afterward.
