Flowers, bunnies, chicks, lambs – Easter is coming and you can see it everywhere. Why not use this occasion to sweep away winter and welcome spring with colourful decorations and little presents for your friends and family? Here are our cutest 10 Easter items from our shop for 2013.

1. Squishy Easter Eggs

These cute little eggs will look great on your Easter trees. We have them in three different designs in pink, green and yellow. And the best part: They won’t break if they fall down. You can even squeeze the hell out of them and they’ll still look nice.

3. Bunny Post-its

They are very suitable for Easter but are a great accessory for the rest of the year too. To see a cute little paper bunny post-its sticking out of your books and memo pads is a lovely sight.

7. Chick Plush Wallet

The bright yellow chick Kiiroitori is a good friend of Rilakkuma, but sometimes stands back a little behind the lazy bear. But Easter is its time to shine. So go for some cute Kiiroitori items like this funny plush wallet for example.

It’s International Polar Bear Day

On February 27th the world honors polar bears. And part of saving polar bears and their habitat is reducing your carbon footprint! This is why the organization around International Polar Bear Day asks you to take part in the Thermostat Challenge and adjust your thermostat up or down a few degrees (depending on where in the world you live).

We also celebrate this day with some of our cute polar bear items.

Out cutest Valentine’s Day products

We have already seen the first Valentine’s Day shop decorations and dinner promotions here in Hong Kong, so obviously it’s time to think about Valentine’s Day. So we do! In the last months we got lots of new items with hearts, which are perfect for Valentine’s Day DIY projects or as little presents.

You can find lots of heart fabrics in our shop at the moment, and in the next weeks more will follow, for example cute heart jersey fabrics by Robert Kaufman. We also have lots of deco and Washi tapes with heart patterns. They are a great accessory to craft cards or wrap gifts. But they can also be the main part of your present, e.g. you can use them to decorate a frame with a photo of you and your loved one or you can stick a love message on a wall.

Self-made chocolates are a great personal present for Valentine’s Day. We carry several chocolate molds and even a complete chocolate set, so that you can make your own yummy creations super easily. And of course there are lots of hearty stationery products like folders, letter sets, stickers and more.

The year 2013 is already 13 days old and and as the beginning of the year is often used for inventory, we also started counting some things. Check out some fun facts about the modes4u office.

We couldn’t wish for a better mascot. Most of the times our beloved giant plush Rilakkuma just relaxes lazily in his office corner, but we’re more than happy that he joined our team.

Eight trays in each shelf

As we have lots of small stationery items we could put eight trays into each shelf to use the space available in the most efficient way.

Nine types of stamps

We ship to almost every country in the world, so of course the postage on each envelope is always different. Every day we have to pick the right amount of stamps of these nine different types when sending your packages.

Since we got a super cool Nespresso coffee machine last spring we can be even more productive. And it’s great to have a big variety of flavours. At the moment we have ten different ones, as all of our staff members have a different taste.

Eleven product categories

In our online shop modes4u.com you can always choose between several thousand products. To help you find the right thing quickly we divided all our stuff into eleven different product categories. Most of them have sub categories too. Of course some of them you can only see at certain times, for example our Christmas our Halloween categories.

Last year we decided to reorganize our stickers and hang them on the wall instead of keeping them in boxes. It looks a lot better and makes picking them a lot easier too. We already have 13 shelves full of stickers, soon we need to add more.

Christmas gifts for brothers

Brothers are usually easygoing and don’t care too much about Christmas presents from their siblings. So this year you could surprise them with a gift they would have never expected… and maybe haven’t even seen before. Check out our Christmas gift ideas 2012.

1. Popin’ Cookin’ DIY candy sets

It’s the latest thing from Japan and we bet your brother has never done anything like that before. No matter if he is six, 16 or 26, this will be something he won’t forget. With the funny Japanese Popin’ Cookin’ DIY candy sets you can make your own gummy candy by mixing powers with water. And the shapes are more than crazy as you can see with those dinosaur and insect candy sets that we picked. And yes, it is fully edible.

No matter if he likes trains, cars, motorcycles, animals or space, we have so many different stickers that it is very likely you’ll find exactly the thing your brother wants.

3. Pocket warmers

This might not seem cool at first, but your brother will definitely appreciate it. Because they constantly forget their gloves in winter time or think they don’t need them. And that’s for sure, they would never get a hand warmer themselves. So do it for them.
