From Easter to Earth Day, there is an occasion for everything this month. With so many options out there, it can be stressful to find the gift that expresses the sentiment you’re striving for. Because of that, we’ve put together this brief April Gift Guide to prevent you from being caught unprepared.
Easter is a time of celebration and giving, better yet, it’s a time for joy! No matter your age, it brings thoughts of colorful, dye-stained hands, bunnies in baskets, and candy-filled eggs hidden in the yard. While chocolate bunnies may be your first Easter candy thought, did you know that some 16 billion jelly beans are consumed on Easter too?
These gifts may not have quite the sugar content, but no one could say they aren’t as colorful! So roll up your sleeves and get to enjoying with delights like Fran’s Milk Chocolate Bunny and Seattle’s own Jonboy Key Lime Caramels.
Note that for Easter we require gift orders to be placed by the 15th if being shipped east of the Rockies and by the 17th if west of the Rockies.
Our Earth is the most important part of our existence, and too often holidays can be more disruptive than beneficial. With all the wrapping, packaging, and single-use plastics, it’s no surprise that the traditional “Holiday Season” is also one of the most wasteful. On Earth Day (and every day, really) it is our responsibility to acknowledge, celebrate and bring value to Earth. At bumble B design, one of the ways we do this is through eco-friendly gifts. Reusable bags, local organic products, and clever ideas to reuse the packaging we do use (more on this to come!) will help you give guilt-free – the way it should be!
Check out the new sizes for our Eco-friendly Bee Bag with products that promote pollinator awareness like Theo’s Honey Bee Confection Collection, as well as packaging with a list of “Feed the Bee” wildflowers. At bumble B we often support bee-friendly products and have cared for hives through the Urban Bee Co. We hope that this Earth Day you can embrace the spirit and give back to the Earth itself. If bees aren’t quite your thing there are many organizations planting trees to fight deforestation on Earth Day and every day, and we dare say the Earth would be tickled if you thought of her on this one. After all, where would trees be without bees (and bees with trees, and trees with bees and say that five times fast).
You don’t have to be in business yourself to celebrate this one! We have all been touched by administrative work (and have likely done some ourselves, even without the title). When the holiday first came about after the Second World War the job description of an administrative assistant was more narrow, predominantly typing and telephone operation. These days, administrative professionals juggle everything from calendars to purchasing to training others – all the more reason to express our gratitude for their continued work. And what better way than with a few PNW favorites found in our eco-friendly “Thank You” bundle or “Munch” bag?
We all know the big one on the 12th – Mother’s Day – but if you’ve ever been to school (and we know you have) you’ll want to think about Teacher’s Appreciation Week which starts on the 6th. On that topic, most schools are getting out later in the month and you know what that means…A new year of graduates! Whether they’ve achieved a Bachelor’s, Masters or survived high school we will have the perfect bundle to congratulate them on their success. Worried you might forget?
