Who else is using this to help them sell their product this Easter?

Chocolate Easter Egg BoxEaster means lots of different things.  New beginnings, bunnies, the end of Lent, Good Friday, Easter Monday, chicks, baby lambs, chocolate and children screaming at you because they’re just desperate for ‘one more Easter egg’.

Finally we’ve ushered in some sun, and isn’t it nice to see it?!  I’m a big fan of this time of year – the trees are green, the birds are singing and the Summer is nearly upon us! Each year these factors set little bells ringing in my mind. Not alarm bells, you might be wondering, but wedding bells. That’s right! Wedding season is fast approaching.

All eggs need a basket: Easter packaging

The trees are blossoming, the sun is shining in the crisp cool air, and the grass is looking decidedly long again: it’s Easter time.

What does Easter mean to you?  For some, it might all be about Christianity.  For others it’s about bunnies and daffodils.  For lots more, it’s all about the gloriously decadent period when Lent finishes and the assault on the chocolate can begin again in earnest.

5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

An old saying states, “A man’s work is from sun to sun, but a mother’s work is never done” and this quote is highly appropriate in the lead up to Mother’s Day.

Mothers are no doubt some of the most unsung heroes of the modern world, and with that in mind, it is highly appropriate that a day is set aside where the focus is on them for a change.  With Mothering Sunday now firmly on the horizon, the time has come for you to grab your mum a gift to show her how much you appreciate her.
