Looking to send a gift to someone you can't be with this Easter?
After a difficult Mothers Day here in the UK when so many of us couldn't be with our mothers due to coronavirus, I've been thinking about Easter.
When I saw Easter eggs in the shops, I didn't want to think about celebrating Easter at this time of fear and loss - but I delivered a food box to my elderly parents who are self-isolating on Saturday. I dropped it off outside the door and backed off to a goodly distance so that my mum could retrieve it and we could share a few emotional words across those vital two metres of safe space.
I'd popped in my mum's gift that we'd planned to give her at our family meal, plus some treats like her favourite chocolates and a little hyacinth plant...
And later, on the phone, my mum's gratitude was expansive and heartfelt that we'd thought to add those little non-essential extras that meant we'd thought and cared about them and how they'd be feeling while we're all struggling through these days and weeks and that we'd wanted to still bring a little sunshine and joy.
That's why I think it's important, if we can, that we try to bring a little happiness and meaning to those we care about while they're apart from us, perhaps feeling fearful for themselves - and if they're a mum, they're probably still worried about you too, even as you're worrying about them!
This year, we very likely won't be exchanging Easter eggs and Easter gifts in person, but we can still send a little love and happiness to those we love best...
I work with print-on-demand companies to put my artwork onto all sorts of lovely products, including clothing, accessories and products for home (or the home office!).
Here are some thoughtful Easter gift ideas you could send, themed around this springtime season...
Super Springtime Flowers
Say it with flowers...

Why I Sell Print on Demand Art and Open-Edition Art Prints...
Have you been wondering why I’ve got such a huge range of online stockists with my artwork on an ever-increasing range of products?
I sell my artwork in a slightly different way to many artists – and here’s why!
I don’t sell limited edition prints but I create open-edition prints instead – and I don’t keep a stock of prints that you can buy directly from me…
Instead, I use companies that offer a print-on-demand service that means that my art is printed onto a product only when a customer orders it.
I believe that this is a much better system for you, as the potential customer, myself as the artist, and actually for the planet too!
