Alternative Easter Gifts

Easter isn’t something we really celebrate which is why I enjoyed my Easter so much at the home of those who do. The only part of Easter my family take part in is the chocolate side of things and a couple of extra days off, which isn’t proper Easter. And this year we’re not even doing that as my mum and my daughter have stipulated a no chocolate rule, so I was looking at some alternative presents.

I had to look twice when I saw this chocolate crème egg necklace. You may have random kids trying to lick it though, I warn you… This is £7 by Blue Cherry Jewellery who also do very realistic nibbled chocolate mini egg earrings.

Will the sterling silver hungry bunny on this necklace ever reach the carrot I wonder? A bit more expensive at £59 but a unique design.

Some of us in the UK will be doing Easter egg hunts in the snow this year and this sterling silver snow globe ring captures this perfectly. It’s also available with a brown bunny or deer inside at £75.

Easter Memory Makers

The best Easter Sunday I’ve ever had was at my friend’s house a few years ago. Everyone was given a boiled egg that had been decorated in advance to look like them and before lunch there was an egg and spoon race down the garden. The house was decorated with Easter wreaths, pretty papier-mâché eggs were hanging from the house plants and later there was an Easter egg hunt. Of course chocolate eggs are gorgeous but really the only memory of them is the extra half-inch round your hips, so include some fun memories too this Easter.

The Easter egg with a secret message is a lovely alternative to a chocolate egg or Easter card. It is a real egg-shell with a secret message inside that can only be accessed by breaking the egg open. Goodness knows how they got the message in there in the first place, but I think it’s a smashing idea. They are £6 each.

These lovely printable designs at $6.50 are a cheep (I’m not sorry!) way to perk up your Easter egg hunt.

This Easter tradition I saw over at See Jane Blog is so sweet for any little kids you may be sharing Easter with, plant some jelly beans and see what grows…
