Want to give something a little bit different this Easter? Look no further! We’ve got some delicious alternative gift ideas to celebrate the Bank Holiday weekend.
£10.95 from Biscuiteers.
Presented in an illustrated gift box, this Peter Rabbit Easter Biscuit Card from Biscuiteers is a delightful alternative to a traditional chocolate egg. Plus, the biscuits are only made from the finest ingredients, so you know there’s no nasty stuff in there. Perfect at bedtime with a Beatrix Potter story.
Hot cross buns
£1 from Tesco.
You could make your own hot cross buns this Easter (BBC has a great recipe here), but it’s probably cheaper and easier to pick up a pack of 6 buns from Tesco for just £1. Serve them golden brown with lashings of butter for a delicious Easter breakfast.
£19.50 from the Hummingbird Bakery.
Just because you don’t want to send an Easter egg it doesn’t mean you have to neglect chocolate all altogether! This box of cupcakes from Hummingbird Bakery (£19.50) includes 6 delicious fluffy sponges hand decorated with Easter designs- in red velvet, vanilla and chocolate.
Giant Easter Egg
£79.99 from Firebox
It’s an Easter egg but not as you know it! Weighing a whopping 2.5kg, this Giant Easter Egg would make the ultimate treasure hunt prize- mainly because the 14,000 calories will keep the lucky recipient in chocolate heaven for months after Easter is over.
£10 from M&S.
Is there anything better than crispy macaroons with a soft chewy centre? You can get 24 mini French almond-flavoured macaroons from M&S for just £10, in three different flavours (vanilla, raspberry and chocolate). Irresistible!
£12.95 from Notonthehighstreet.com.
What says Happy Easter more than a spotty chocolate chicken? Absolutely nothing! And at just £12.95 from Notonthehighstreet.com, we reckon this hand-crafted Belgium chocolate hen is an absolute bargain. Choose from white with blue spots and orange with blue spots.
