Easter Feature 2016...πŸ‡

Once celebrated for the religious background, Easter is now celebrated in countries far and wide, whether for religious reasons or seasonal reasons. Myself and Spud celebrate for both religious and seasonal reasons, and I must admit the Easter bunny plays a big part of our annual Easter celebration, along with quality family time with our wider family.

This year, I'm featuring a great range of products for Easter, including traditional Easter eggs, along with alternative sweet treats, and alternative non food gifts - for the whole family, no matter the recipient's age! I'm also featuring arts and crafts based items, along with decorations and more!

I hope you enjoy, and whatever you do this Easter, I hope you have a eggtastic time!
