Easter is coming around fast, and it provides the perfect occasion to flex your gift-giving muscles and come up with some truly unique ideas that are sure to please even the most difficult of family and friends. Whether you want quirky and cool or something more traditional with a fun twist, there are loads of different options when it comes to giving the perfect gifts this Easter.
Now, we know that chocolate is not necessarily an unusual gift to receive at Easter, but who doesn’t love a little sweet treat to celebrate a special occasion? Traditionally chocolate eggs are given to people as gifts during Easter, but there are tons of other options if you fancy mixing it up a bit this year. How about chocolate bunnies, chicks or even slabs of marbled chocolate bejewelled with an array of glistening toppings? We’re sure that they’ll be hard to resist. Read Chocolate 101 to learn more about the origins of this yummy treat.
As a celebratory occasion that heralds the joys of springtime, giving the gift of gorgeous spring blooms is a great way to go. Sunny yellow daffodils are an iconic symbol of spring, or you could opt for pastel pink spring roses, vibrant mixed tulips or a bouquet with a variety of lily, freesia and iris blooms. If you like the idea of more of a long-term gift that will last for many Easter celebrations to come then a pretty potted plant or tree might be just what you need.
Soft and fluffy
If there is one gift that people of all ages will appreciate it is a super cute cuddly toy. It is quite simply a fact that you are never too old for a cuddly toy. Cuddly toys are great for a number of different occasions and Easter is no exception, with lots of relevant options including a cute chick, fluffy bunny or even a spring lamb. As well as being much kinder to your waistline than hoards of chocolate, cuddly toys provide a super snuggly keepsake gift.
Pretty but practical
If you want a fun twist on the traditional Easter egg theme then how about looking out for some fun and funky or truly traditional egg cups for a cute yet practical gift that is sure to be well received. Go modern with colour-block cool or source fun mismatched offerings from charity shops or quirky online retailers. You’ll thank us the next time you fancy a boiled egg and soldiers!
Food glorious food
If there’s one thing that is as equally well received as a cuddly toy it has to be food. If you’re considering a foodie gift this Easter then Spicers has got you covered.
