The tradition of Easter, except all the religious and biblical references, is to give a chocolate egg to all your friends and family. The shops always go crazy at getting all the different chocolate brands to create their own egg and have now even began to make their own versions of more artisan and homemade style eggs, which are just a little bit more classy that the traditional one. However, today’s post is not about the good old tradition, but it’s about the people which don’t fit that mould and which prefer something a little less sugary as a gift for the holiday.
There’s always thousands of options to choose from when it comes to Easter and chocolate eggs. Over the years the Supermarkets have really upped their game regarding them and now stock over 20-30 different brands and styles of the chocolate traditions. However, it’s not only until recently that some people have began to not necessarily want a chocolate treat for Easter, but instead something a little bit different but still Easter inspired. This is why I have created this little Easter gift guide, to inspire you and let you know about some of the best little Easter gifts, which are not chocolate, that are available on the high-street this year.
From Top to Bottom, Left to Right: notonthehighstreet.com £5, LUSH £19.95, notonthehighstreet.com £7, notonthehighstreet.com £18, John Lewis £8, notonthehighstreet.com £29, Yankee Candle £12.99, notonthehighstreet.com £11.95, M&S £9.50
The first gift which any bath lover would love to receive, has to be some of the new Easter Collection from LUSH. There’s some amazing products that range from Bath Bombs to Soap and even shower gel, that’s all inspired by the spring holiday. The yellow bunny gift above is called Funny Bunny and is one of the gift sets which LUSH annually bring out. It includes the Dragon Egg bath bomb, which may look boring from the outside, but as soon as it hits the water and begins to fizz, it turns your bath into a feast of colours, and is perfect for someone who can never decide what LUSH bath bomb they want to use. There’s also the fluffy egg bath bomb, the bunch of carrots bubble bar, which you just crumble around a 1/4 of into running water for an amazing alternative to bubble bath, and the Hoppity Poppity Bath Bomb.
The second gift, which I am sure any woman in your life would love to receive, has to be these Easter rings and bracelets from notonthehighstreet.com. They are something which I noticed as I was researching on the internet for this post, and were just too cute and too much of a good idea to not include in this gift guide. With their cute Easter references, they are still very much for the spring holiday, however they are very much a different approach to the easter gift that chocolate eggs are. These provide a perfect keepsake for your loved one and something they can wear during this year’s spring holiday, Easter’s to come, and even all year round if it really tickles their fancy.
The final gift, which I’m sure that all the hot drink lovers in your life would like to receive, has to be this monochrome, rabbit mug from M&S. This gift is super easy as it would appeal to both the men and the woman in your life, so you could go out and buy a few, and then just distribute one to each to your male and female friends. It’s really unique with it’s graphic, monochrome print, and would be a great little token gift to give someone this easter.
I hope that you now feel inspired on what to buy and what’s out there for people which might not necessarily want a chocolate treat this year for Easter; and that you all have a great Easter whether that’s spending the whole weekend eating chocolate, or going out with friends and family.
