Easter is a special time when everything is reborn after the dark days of winter. Why not celebrate the spirit of this season by sharing cards and gifts with family and friends. Add a colourful touch to envelopes and gift bags using simple embellishments that can be sourced in the home. Don't forget to add some kisses too, to show the special people in your life just how much they mean to you at Eastertide.
