Easter starts with Good Friday, which is on April 10th, this year and a serving of Hot Crossed Buns covered in rich creamy butter. This is followed by chocolate Easter Eggs on Easter Sunday. These are wonderful traditions but for various reasons you may want to consider healthier lower calorie alternative gifts this year. May be you are just watching your weight, may be you are trying to reduce your cholesterol intake, maybe you don’t like chocolate or hot crossed buns, whatever the reason Easter doesn’t need to be packed with calories and cholesterol.
When you consider how expensive good Easter Eggs can be you can find some very nice gifts, which will last much longer for the same price.Easter, somewhat like Christmas, is a good time for families to get together and enjoy a relaxing day. If you cannot all be together at Easter, Easter cards are a good way of letting someone know you are thinking of them. However, a good hand crafted Easter card can also be quite expensive and only lasts a few days at best.
The traditional standby alternative to Easter Eggs is a good bouquet of flowers but these days’ flowers can be expensive, short lived and many people don’t like the smell of the pollen in their homes. Many people also question the impact cut flowers have on the environment as they are often raised in heated greenhouses in colder parts of the World or companies fly them in from tropical parts of the world in refrigerated containers to keep them fresh. If you know someone really likes flowers then it’s not a bad gift but for the same price there are better alternatives gifts.
Keepsake tokens make lovely gifts and they will last for years to come. They come in many shapes and sizes from silver hearts engraved with names, and messages to miniature glass keepsakes in pretty colours and designs such as those from Spaceform of London. If you are buying a gift for the lady in your life, a sumptuous velvet jewellery roll is an inexpensive gift that she will treasure for many years. To make Easter really memorable, a stunning piece of jewellery is a sure way to make her day.
