Nice as a Gift

by Al S., Mar 16, 2019

A cute gift but not worth the money. This month’s non-food item was a cheap, cellophane hard boiled egg cover for Easter. It had some great cookies and some wrapped small candies.

Zdravstvuite (Hello) Al! Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you felt that our March box was not worth the money. It contained 21 separate items and 9 varieties of cookies, waffles, several types candy, a spring lollypop and a drink. The cultural item included in this box was an imported kit of 7 egg wraps with the Khokhloma pattern, which is a traditional flower & berry pattern used on spoons, dishware and other Russian & Ukranian folk art pieces. These wraps make it easy to transfer the pattern onto eggs for Easter while keeping the eggs edible. My grandmother used to collection peels, carrots, beets, etc. so that we could use them to dye the eggs. But now, you don't even have to do that! You can use an iconic transfer pattern like Khokhloma and make your Easter eggs even more fun! The accompanying informational packet lays out the translated directions to make the transfer process understandable and super easy. It's a great activity for adults and kids!
