It feels like Christmas was only yesterday, but already Easter is just around the corner. If you have children in your family, Easter is especially fun – even if it does get a little competitive at the annual family Easter egg hunt! If you’re stuck for ideas for Easter this year, we’ve compiled a list of suggestions to make it an egg-cellent one to remember!
Host a picnic in your garden
Picnics are a perfect way to celebrate the start of Spring and the return of the sunny weather; an activity for all the family and a great way to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Why not plan some activities and games while enjoying a Spicers of Hythe picnic hamper to enjoy in the sun? For an extra special treat, consider The Ascot wicker hamper (£115); filled with 20 different gourmet delights to wow the entire family.
Plan a Scavenger hunt
An adaptation of a classic Easter egg hunt, a Scavenger hunt is a great way to engage teenagers and include them in the celebrations. Create clues linking each hiding spot to the next to add an element of mystery!
Plant time capsules
Why not start a new tradition this Easter? Time capsules are a great way to create memories and reflect on the past. Ask children to write a letter to themselves and place it inside a small plastic egg, for them to bury in the garden – but don’t be tempted to dig them up!
Don’t forget the grown ups
Easter eggs are often a gift given to younger members of the family, but why not treat the adults to some gifts too? Our delightful range of Easter hampers can be found here and there’s something for everyone. From a Tea Time Tray (£20.86) for Grandma and Grandad, an Exquisite Refresher hamper (£24.19) for aunts and uncles to a Savoury Gift Box (£33.24) for your other half, you can surprise and delight the whole family this Easter!
