No one would have believed, in the early years of the 21st century, that human affairs were to be curtailed by a killer pandemic. No one could have dreamed that we would need to be vaccinated against a microscopic virus that swarms and multiplies invisible to human eyes.
Ok, so I’ve been listening to War of the Worlds too much recently. But that’s about the truth of it, and 12 April is going to be the earliest we get out of lockdown. Which means… that Easter is going to be pretty lonely for a lot of people, unable to see friends and family.
It’s going to be different for sure, and difficult for many, but that doesn’t mean we can’t let our loved ones know we are thinking about them. And by sending them a little something made by a local supplier you are helping to prop up fellow Manxies and keep the economy moving, putting a few pounds in their pockets to spend on everyday essentials.
If you’re stuck for ideas, here’s our pick of Easter treats for you. Click on the pictures to visit their shop pages.
How cute are these little bunnies? They’re are a lovely way to present Kinder Surprise eggs to make them that bit more special. They can be personalised too – just pop the details in the comments box at checkout.
Remember Moochers Market? If you’re as old as me I’m sure you will. What a place. This funny card has checkboxes for the relevant occasion, including Easter!
These delightful hanging Easter decorations are customisable with your little one’s name.
Don’t delay though – get your order in today to ensure Alice has time to make them for you and get them shipped out in time for next weekend!
Easter wouldn’t be Easter would it, without chocolate! Chocolates of Man make THE most delicious, preservative free (and gluten free) chocolate. It’s absolutely divine….
Not everyone likes or wants chocolate of course, so you can browse the store for all kinds of other lovely local gifts.
How about this strawberry and rhubarb tea light gift set from Breeze Candles?
Or you can send someone a hug. Felicity Woods’ Cloud Hug gift package includes a handmade ceramic and a greetings card, all gift wrapped. Your message will be handwritten in the greetings card for you.
And finally, if you need a gift for him…. how about this laugh out loud T Shirt! I think it needs ‘or 2021’ adding to it too – at this rate anyway.
Happy shopping folks, and have a great week.
