Easter Gifts are especially joyous to give and receive as they mark the beginning of spring and the end of the winter months. This year in particular it seems fitting to mark the change in the seasons as they represent a gradual goodbye to sad and difficult times and a celebration of happy times to come.
Our gifting expert, Claire, is keen to share her thoughts on Easter gifts that are both traditional and original.
Choccy chicks, eggs and bunnies!
There is no better time to tuck into the choccies, and with our range of ethical, organic and fair trade treats, you'll be spoilt for choice. All you need to consider is whether your recipient would prefer cute chocolate chicks or a bar of sophisticated honeycomb milk chocolate from forest-friendly maker, Love Cocoa.
Sweet and funky non-choc options
If you're buying for someone who isn't a fan of chocolate, there are lots of fun seasonal alternatives that will work just as well. We love these little boxes of hot cross bun flavoured fudge from Laura's Confectionery. Or you can build a box featuring a range of gifts in bright spring colours, perhaps starting with a Laura Jackson cheerful yellow coaster or tea towel and a fresh green box of SuperTea's breakfast blend. Two gorgeous (and useful!) planet-friendly gifts that celebrate the season are our blossom-print e-coffee cup and our range of seedballs including herb, butterfly and bee mixes. You'll have a lot of fun building your box, and your recipient will love the thought you've put into their gift.
A lovely idea that saves money and time, as well as being kind to the planet, is to send a family box for Easter. Rather than sourcing gifts from here, there and everywhere and sending numerous parcels, simply browse our wide range of ethically-sourced gifts and create one fabulous box filled with goodies for the whole family. We stock gifts for babies, children, tweens and teens as well as adults, so there's something for everyone! Gifts can be individually labelled, simply request this when ordering.
This Easter we even have a ready-made Family Easter Box, as well as a range of baking and craft activity boxes from our award-winning gifting partners, Craft & Crumb. These provide the added bonus of a really fun family activity to keep everyone busy over the Easter Holidays.
Little and large
Our ready-made boxes come in a range of sizes to suit every budget, from the Easter Treat Letterbox Gift (£18.00) which provides everything you need for a tasty Easter tea break, to the Luxury Easter Treats Box (£52.00) which will give a family, couple or lucky loved one the ultimate Easter Weekend! All our ready-made boxes include free standard delivery and you can choose an Easter card for your handwritten message.
