Our Guide to Easter 2021

*Ad-Gifted. All opinions are our own.

Once again we're all about to experience an Easter unlike our traditional ones of the past, where all the family gather together, squashed round the same table, enjoying more food than we probably should and each other's company.

All this as well as trips out, Easter egg hunts and get togethers with friends for a coffee and a chin wag... we can both talk for Britain. However, just because it is different, it doesn't need to be miserable as we can still enjoy the gifts brought by the Easter Bunny and be thankful for what we have.

Looking for a little Easter inspiration this year? Then take a look at what we'll be enjoying this Spring.

PLAYinCHOC is definitely in one of our top picks this Easter. Not only because they are dairy, nut and gluten free, but the packaging is made from 100% recycled paper and is recyclable and home compostable. But there’s more! They are vegan and organic too! But the best bit is that they taste absolutely amazing and they are made in the UK. So that ticks more boxes than we actually knew we had!

Easter doesn’t have to be chocolate, giving a gift that will last a lot longer than Easter Day is sometimes a nice idea. Miffy books are just timeless , that sweet little white rabbit who presents the world in a wonderful positive way. A perfect gift to be enjoyed again and again.

Now I can’t lie I am quite partial to chocolate and when it comes to a true chocolate treat, Lily O Briens Dessert collection has my vote. They put a whole new spin on chocolate treats with lemon posset and crème Brûlée and more. Little cups of loveliness in all your favourite dessert flavours, who could want more!

NIEDEREGGER at Easter is just part of a tradition in our home. The beautiful colourfully wrapped marzipan treat makes a beautiful gift if you can bear to part with them. You just know you are giving a premium quality chocolate marzipan. And it’s so nice to treat someone special in your life. I particularly like the boxes portraying very traditional Easter bunny’s that take me right back to my childhood!

It’s really nice to gift something different at Easter time. And when I saw this gorgeous Molang plushie, I immediately knew who would love it. It’s the sweetest softest thing and so squishy I just love it!

Even the dogs get a little treat at Easter time and this home baking kit from Sniffe & Likkit is perfect for my girls. It has some really lovely ingredients, so I don’t need to worry about their tummies. One little girl already has her eye on this… how does she know?!

The words “ Belgian Chocolate “ just sounds opulent and this lovely Belgian chocolate egg shape slab most definitely is. Charlotte Jane Cakes only use the finest Belgian chocolate and everything is handmade. You really can taste the quality of the chocolate and they are suitable for vegetarians too!

Why shouldn’t we treat the old generation at Easter time? This beautiful cheese and wine hamper from red letter day is a perfect gift. It arrives beautifully packaged with a message and complete with chill packs to keep the cheeses in top condition while in transportation. All beautifully presented with a slate cheese board and even a lush apricot chutney!

There is in my opinion absolutely nothing wrong with giving yourself a little Easter treat. And Coole Swan Irish cream liqueur is one of my favourite treats. Severed chilled over ice or in a Espresso Martini are my two favourite ways of drinking Coole Swan, but trust me there are many more!

Finally we are able to get together with families and when invited to have an Easter meal with family, I don’t like to go empty handed. I love Rubies in the Rubble relishes and this gift set is just perfect to say thank you. They use all the odd shaped fruit and veg that would normally get wasted and turn them into the most delicious relishes. Vegan friendly, gluten free and all packaging is recyclable. What's not to love!

It can be difficult at Easter time especially if you have some one who is dairy intolerant. But when I discovered Moo Free, I knew its was going to be just fine. I small family company who's dairy dodging chocolates are just scrumptious. It's also vegan and gluten free. Plus all packaging is recyclable win win at Easter!
