Looking for a unique Easter gift? With less than two weeks to go until Easter, we’ve found some Wonderfully British alternatives to the typical supermarket chocolate eggs associated with this time of year, which are sure to make anyone smile. From handmade gifts, to cute eco-friendly presents, here's ten ideas to try.
1. Handmade By Samantha
We all deserve a little self care now and again and these gorgeous bath bombs from Handmade by Samantha are a great way to not only bring a hint of spring colour into the bathroom but to encourage some much-needed down time too.
The lemon and lime essential oils in these salty citrus bath bombs will leave the skin feeling silky smooth and recharged - the perfect treat for someone who needs a little r&r or even for yourself!
2. Russet and Grey
It's looking like we won't be seeing the warmer weather just yet which gives us the perfect excuse to feature these adorable bunny themed knitted hats from the lovely Russet and Grey. If you've got infants or children to buy for, or even if you're looking for a new born baby gift, take a look at these stunning handmade pieces, each designed and created with love to keep our little ones warm even on the chilliest of days.
3. Little Eco Eats
It's safe to say that over the last year most people we know, be it children or adults, have experienced some form of anxiety which more than likely won't be going away anytime soon. The recently launched calming lavender dough from Little Eco Eats could be the perfect answer to this! The calming dough is infused with lavender essential oils and can be used as a relaxing sensory activity for children or as a tool to help adults de-stress and calm down.
4. The Naked Marshmallow Company
This is one for those with a sweet tooth but doesn't it look great?! The team at The Naked Marshmallow Company have added an Easter twist to their original marshmallow toasting kits. The Easter kit includes both the Creme Egg and Mini Egg limited edition flavours, as well as the toaster and bamboo sticks so the recipient of this sweet treat will have everything they need to get stuck in and enjoy, straight away!
5. Hadleigh Wax Melts
Recently launched, these fantastic wax melts not only look good enough to eat (please don't), but smell incredible and are environmentally friendly too. The Hadleigh Wax Melts Easter collection features a range of scents from Chocolate Fudge Mini Egg to Cotton Tails Vanilla and Amber, all of which will leave any home smelling sweet for hours.
6. Creatively Felt
Now we know fresh flowers aren't for everyone, but what if you could gift flowers which will last longer than a week or two? Ruth over at Creatively Felt hand crafts felt flowers to add a touch of long lasting colour to any room. We are huge fans of spring flowers and think these felt daffodils, available to order in a range of colours, are absolutely gorgeous!
7. Seed Craft
Looking for something for someone a little green fingered? Or someone who loves cooking? The guys at Seed Craft have added a Herb Seed Kit to their collection. The perfect gift for anyone who's looking to start growing their own herbs to add a little homemade love to to their cooking. The kit includes everything needed to get set up as well as seeds for the staple herbs, basil, parsley, rosemary and chives.
8. Lesley McShea
Chances are, if you're not shopping for children, the recipient of your Easter gift is likely to enjoy a hot drink of some kind. Whether it's that all important morning coffee or something of the herbal variety, why not treat them to a bright mug to add some colour to their daily routine? Lesley McShea has added some gorgeous spring coloured items to her collection this London logo set is one of our favourites!
9. The Little E and O Company
Is an Easter egg hunt an annual tradition in your family? Or will you be introducing one for the first time this year? Either way, these personalised tote bags from The Little E and O Company are the perfect accessory for collecting those eggs and treats in. What's more, they can be re-used after the occasion for anything from storing PE kits or a change of clothes at school, to carrying those all important groceries home from the shop.
10. Cocoa Loco
You didn't think we'd do a whole blog about Easter gifts without mentioning chocolate eggs at all did you?! Cocoa Loco have done it again with their ability to create a chocolate treat which makes our mouths water as soon as we see the photographs! This year their Easter range covers everything from chocolate lollipops to hot cross bun truffles and giant eggs. All of their treats are Fairtrade and there are even some vegan options available too!
We hope this gives you some inspiration! Happy sHOPping! x
