This is our second year celebrating a lockdown Easter and to be honest it is something I really don’t want repeating for a third year!
I am in love with giving some different items, other than eggs, as gifts! Of course there is always place for chocolate but if you are wanting a few alternative ideas then check out the list below! Happy Shopping!
At Rubies in the Rubble we make condiments that save delicious ingredients that would usually be rejected by others in the supply chain (simply for being the wrong shape, size or surplus to demand)! Spring time is about new life, and we give new life to fruit and veg that would otherwise be wasted, turning them into chutneys and sauces.
Our relish giftset (RRP £12, images attached, available to but on rubiesintherubble.com) features 3 of our best-selling chutneys, and every box saves 8 onions, 1 apple and 1 pear from going to waste.

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
