DealDash Helps Prepare Easter Baskets

DealDash

Easter is about a month away, and it’s the perfect time to get your kid’s Easter baskets ready. DealDash has some ideas.

Now is the perfect time to begin collecting things to go into Easter baskets. No matter who you are gifting an Easter basket – from kids to seniors, DealDash has some great things to include. Read on for some Easter basket tips.

Get Your Basket Recipient Something from DealDash

Firstly, you can stay in and shop on DealDash for Easter. Wouldn’t your child or other family members just love a soft and fuzzy bunny rabbit toy? Or how about a funny bunny lamp? You can see some of the bunny items that are currently up for bid at this link right here. You can also find some nice fresh items in the New Item category on DealDash. Just click this link here!

Not Big on Candy?

Next, I know not every person is into candy. Think of the person who you are gifting a basket, what are their hobbies? For instance, if the person loves to knit, simple, make a basket with some yarn, stitch markers, and maybe even a few patterns. For a child who doesn’t like (or isn’t allowed) candy, then you will want to load up their basket with surprise eggs, coloring books, crayons, card games, and any other fun surprises you think they will like. Just be sure to add some fun Easter grass and a bow!

Let Them Craft a Basket

Finally, another fun way to celebrate Easter is to let them make their own baskets! Find a white basket and some markers or paint pens and encourage the person to decorate their basket how they like it. Next, you can have them either write down some suggestions of things that they would like in their basket or even draw pictures if they prefer. Then it’s time for you to go shopping and fulfill their wish list. As a result, there are no worries about including things they don’t like or are allergic to. Also, it’s easier for you!

DealDash Tips to Buying Dark Chocolate

DealDash

Dark chocolate is yummy and healthier than it’s milk chocolate counterpart. Read these tips from DealDash for buying dark chocolate.

With Spring upon us you may be thinking about getting chocolates and other treats for your kids. But what about you? If you happen to enjoy dark chocolate as a treat you should buy the best quality chocolate that you can find. Here are some tips for buying the best dark chocolate, from DealDash.

Always Read the Ingredients

Take some time to read the ingredients when you are shopping for dark chocolate. You want no more than five ingredients listed on the wrapper. One of the ingredients on the wrapper should be cocoa and you also want to look for natural ingredients in place of artificial ingredients. This is so that you know you are getting the best quality chocolate.

Check the Expiration Date

You also want to keep track of the expiration date on the wrapper of the chocolate that you are purchasing. This is not only to help ensure that you are getting the best quality chocolate but also that you are getting something that you can safely eat. If your chocolate does not have an expiration date on it don’t purchase it. This goes for all foods, so please pay attention when you are shopping. 

Buy From a Good Brand

Make sure that you are purchasing your dark chocolate from a reputable brand. If you are taking a chance on an unknown brand you are running the risk of the chocolate not being of a good quality. So be sure to purchase your dark chocolate from a brand that you trust so you know that you are getting a good quality product.

Remember, just because it’s the most expensive doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the best, either. Do a little research online and read the reviews of a few different brands before you make your decision.

Thanks for Reading

Now keep all of these things in mind when you are looking for the best quality dark chocolate so that you can really treat yourself. You will find that better quality dark chocolate is not priced much differently then it’s lesser quality counterparts so it should fit right into your budget. And you are definitely going to appreciate the difference between the qualities of dark chocolate that are out there.
