In recent decades, we have seen our religious and spiritual holidays becoming more commercialised, and let’s face it, we enjoy buying gifts for our children. I know I do, even though I try not to spoil them too much. But they are so loving, so adorable (when they behave), and just so perfect to me, that I want to buy the things that make them happy.
We always receive a lot of Easter eggs as gifts from family and friends. Now, I’m not complaining about excess supplies of chocolate. But sometimes it would be nice to receive more thoughtful gifts, perhaps something that we could keep and use or admire as a family heirloom.
I really like the range of china cups and dishes that are available from Wedgwood. We used to collect them when we were children, and I still have a couple of vintage child cups hidden in my cupboard, until such a time that I trust my own children to use them safely. I love this Peter Rabbit mug inspired by Beatrix Potter. It gives me a warm, whimsical feeling, and rabbits are perfect for Easter and Ostara. There are other gift ideas in the range, but the mug is probably the most useful, or would look very pretty on a nursery bookshelf next to the collection that inspired its design.
