Easter and Mother’s Day are looming and

Easter and Mother’s Day are looming and Little Ndaba have the perfect gift ideas for Easter together with the most unique gifts for Mothers you really appreciate. (If you’re reading this outside of Zambia, we’re not really behind the times — Zambia celebrates Mother’s Day in May!) We’ve put together some of the best little Ndaba gift ideas in this picture blog.

The Easter gift range for Little Ndaba is unique and quirky. They’ve got wonderful pull along rabbit toys for Easter. The bunny in a basket is a fantastic way to greet your child at breakfast on Easter Sunday. This hand crafted bunny comes in a basket ready for you to fill with your child’s favourite chocolates for Easter. Kalulu Bunny has a specially designed domed bottom to hide a surprise egg and the basket can be used for treasure hunts later in the day. Finally this very silly bunny can make many more appearances at the breakfast table as a jolly boiled egg warmer!

The Little Ndaba Mother’s Day range is just beautiful and will melt the hearts of Mothers across the land. They have these heart lockets called, ‘Say what is in your heart.’ They come with a little rolled up piece of paper for a child to write their message of love to their Mums. Ahhh! Or children have the option of putting in their own card or drawing.

These wooden love letters are available in a variety of finishes. Go for a natural feel or make it extra special, children can add their own personal touches. They can write personal messages in felt pens all over the letters to make this gift even more memorable.

Handmade wooden trays are available from Little Ndaba as a blank canvas gift. The trays can be personalised for Mother’s day… Kids can draw their own design for Mum, Little Ndaba will burn it on and then they can decorate it. Trays can be decorated in food colouring or whatever paints are available at home. Little Ndaba have thought of everything — they even sell brushes and varnish in little pots so you can protect your gifts. As a final touch, remember to serve Mum breakfast in bed on her very own tray designed and created by you! Trays with designs drawn on must be returned to Little Ndaba for burning at Crossroads Mall by April 25th at the latest. Pick up is any time after May the 5th.

All these gifts are available from the Little Ndaba shop in Crossroads Shopping Mall which is packed full of little gems so is definitely worth a visit.
