I’m sure we can all agree, that for some unknown reason Easter egg chocolate really does taste better than a regular bar! But by the time you’ve finished your second or even your first egg, the feeling of guilt begins to set in. That’s why many choose to take a different approach to Easter gifts, instead opting for presents that aren’t egg related.
So if you’re looking for the perfect present for your loved one this year, we’re here to help! Below is a list of the top 10 unique gift ideas that can help to cut down on the post-Easter chocolate overload and still bring them joy!
Bring a touch of spring into their home
We celebrate Easter in the spring, the season when the sun begins to shine, the weather starts to warm up and flowers begin to grow. With so many beautiful bouquets available at this time, flowers could be the perfect gift for your loved one. Alternatively, if they’re green fingered and love tending to their garden, why not consider buying them a beautiful new planter and some seeds so they can grow their own!
Get them something personal
You can never go wrong with jewellery, especially when you add the personal touch. Whether you choose a necklace, bracelet, ring or cufflinks, there are so many options available to you, especially online. A number of retailers offer personalisation on all our jewellery, so choose the style you want and get in touch with them to add your own message of love. You could even opt to have a bracelet or necklace that says their name, or even just a piece of jewellery that contains their initials. We all love the personal touch and this is a gift that really shows you care.
Buy them their favourite tipple
Craft alcohol is becoming increasingly popular right now, especially with the rise in flavoured spirits. So why not treat your loved one to their favourite tipple or get them something they’ve never tried before. From a refreshing gin on a spring day, to a delicious craft ale with dinner, you can find them a bottle (or two) you know they’ll love.
Put your heart into a handmade hamper
Give a gift that’s truly special by creating your own handmade hamper. This way you can carefully pick the contents and fill your basket with all the items you know they love. You might even choose to theme your hamper by selecting a range of cosmetics, foods, drinks or crafts, depending on their tastes. The time you put into this gift really shows how well you know them and how much you care – a much better idea than your average Easter egg!
The gift of light
Bring a little light to the dark evenings with beautifully crafted candles. There are so many options available to you, from scented Yankee jars, to intricate hand carved candles, you’ll find the perfect choice for your loved one. You might even want to select them a delicate candle holder to match. You’ll have your pick of ceramic, wooden, glass or metal holders in a huge variety. It’s just about finding the right candle to compliment their style.
For the coffee lovers in your life
Does your loved one often find themselves hosting afternoon coffee breaks? Or perhaps they’re always dashing out the door to work, coffee in hand. Gift them with a personalised, funny or charming new mug. Alternatively, as we continue to fight the plastic battle, more companies are producing beautiful and environmentally friendly reusable flasks for having your tea or coffee on the go. This gift is not only practical, but they’ll feel happy in the knowledge they’re doing their bit for the planet!
Treat them to some luxury
Why not give a gift that keeps on giving. Treat your loved one to some of their favourite cosmetics or products to help them unwind and pamper themselves. You might choose luxurious bubble baths, shower cremes, or bath salts – all things we love to receive, but don’t always like to buy for ourselves. So these can make the perfect gifts for Easter! Not to mention as the weather heats up and we spend more time outside, we like to take better care of our skin for that sunny glow, so moisturisers and body scrubs will also go down a treat.
The perfect gift for bookworms
Nothing is nicer than sitting in the garden or your local park on a sunny spring day and enjoying a great book. So if you’ve got a book lover amongst you, why not buy them the latest release from their favourite author. You could also turn to the internet for this seasons best seller list and perhaps treat them to a great read they may not have otherwise considered.
Compliment their flowers
Do they always have fresh bouquets dotted around the house? Get them a beautiful new vase they’ll want to put in pride of place. Keep it simple and elegant with clear glass, or go bright and bold with hand painted vases. Whatever you choose, try to match their style or the theme of their home, you could even buy them a beautiful bunch of spring flowers to go in their new Easter vase!
Something for the kitchen
A chocolate egg lasts a day (if you’re lucky) but something new for the kitchen can last for years! If your loved one is a keen chef, consider some new baking equipment. Or perhaps they’re a tea lover? A new tea set or tea cosy will always go down well. For those who love to host, beautiful table clothes can spice up any dinning room. You could even get the place setting to match.
Or perhaps you want to stick with the Easter theme? There are a selection of beautiful aprons out there featuring chicks, ducks or bunnies in beautiful meadows – perfect for those who are a bit messier in the kitchen. Alternatively, you can opt for the more comical novelty aprons if that’s more their style.
