I don’t do Easter Trees, it’s Eggs all the way here. This year we have seen some awesome eggs in the shops and I wanted to share a few of the best. Hopefully it will help you choose your treats this Easter too! Of course, chocolate isn’t for everyone so I have also included some non choccy gift ideas too.
Angus The Bull is one of the fabulous character eggs developed by M&S for children but I know lots of adults who would be happy to receive one! At £5 they are great value too!
We love to do an Easter egg hunt with the children, Their enthusiasm for the idea of finding quantities of chocolate doesn’t seem to be wearing off as they grow older either. Funny that. This egg hunt from M&S includes a large golden egg to find!
Prosecco + Chocolate = Proseggo! With blackcurrant and raspberry flavours this sounds ideal.
I saw this dark chocolate feather egg on a recent trip to check out what was on offer this Easter at Queensgate shopping centre. As soon as I saw it I fell in love! As well as the beautifully decorated peacock feather egg you also get some dark chocolate salted caramel mini eggs too. Yum!
Thorntons have been personalising Easter eggs since 1922. They remain one of few (in most cases the only) retailer to offer this service. It isn’t something they charge extra for either. When I was young I used to receive an egg just like the one above every year. It was just as exciting to get one this year at age 37!
I love caramel. This Dairy Milk Caramel egg is huge and looks very tasty! This year I am trying to limit my chocolate so Bess will get the big egg and I will opt for this Mini Egg offering. Rather than 1 big egg it contains smaller packets of Mini eggs – perfect portion control. MrG favours the Creme egg, he would eat them all year round if he could!
Moose is so excited for his Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday. We will need to think up lots of clues for him but I know he will love finding not only chocolate eggs but bags of Mini eggs and bunnies too!
With Easter egg choices suitable for vegans, Divine have you covered this Easter. Every Divine Chocolate Easter egg carries the official FairTrade label of certification because of Divine’s support of fair-trade employers who provide good, fair wages and a sustainable livelihood for their workers.
I really like these Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies from Interplay for a fun, cute, non-edible Easter treat. This is a lovely little craft set and allows your child to use their imagination and create something really unique. Colour the bunnies and make their beds (very easily, I was pleased with how much Moose could do all by himself!) Best of all you can then rinse the bunnies off and start again!
Not your traditional Easter treat but I love the honeycomb dips from Mighty fine! I am afraid that the bag of dark chocolate honeycomb dips fell into my mouth before this photo could be taken. I can confirm that they are really, very good!
Available in bar or bite sized chunk and I cannot wait to try the salted caramel!
I always forget about department stores at Easter but John Lewis has an amazing range of treats this year! Decorative papier mache eggs containing gorgeous truffles and this Chicken character egg are my favourites.
Moose loves a blind bag. Like, really loves them. Sometimes he gets a bit of money for Easter and I know that he will probably choose to spend some on a blind bag toy like Moj Moj. It’s great that they are pocket money prices!
Blacksticks CHEESE Easter egg
Who said Easter eggs had to be chocolate? This is the one of a kind (half) egg made from Blackstick Blue Cheese. It comes with a pack of oatcakes and some chutney. Sounds like an ideal Sunday evening to me! You can find your favourite, here
