From savoury eggs to spring craft kits and rejuvenating scented items, do something different this Easter
Easter is a time for rejuvenation – when the world around us is coming back to life, and the days are full with a sense of hope for the season ahead of us.
Many of us treasure the traditional chocolate Easter egg but, if you’re looking for something a bit different or something that captures the unique feeling of this time of year, we’ve got just the lineup for you…
1. Bulgarian rose water, Alteya Organic
The perfect way to bring a breath of spring air into your life, the pure distilled rose water from Alteya Organic is a real treat. Spray it on your face and body to tap into the nourishing qualities of rose water, and use it as a toner or a setting spray – or just give yourself a spritz during the day when your skin (and mind) needs a refreshing boost.
2. Liquorice Easter egg, Lakrids
For those who want to expand beyond the traditional Easter egg, the liquorice Easter eggs from Lakrids blend the distinct flavour of liquorice with other ingredients, to create a truly unique experience. Coming in egg capsules, these soft liquorice spheres come in delicious flavours, including banana, salted dulce de leche caramel, and creamy white chocolate.
3. Sari rag wreath, Pri Pri
A gift that looks good while doing good, the wreaths from Pri Pri are made from pre-loved saris, and are made by a charity in India that supports underprivileged women by offering them training in tailoring. Brighten up any front door with a unique wreath.
4. Botanical cast diffusers, The Foxglove Tree
Handmade from real plants and flowers, the cast diffusers from The Foxglove Tree are the perfect way to scent small areas around the home (or even a car). Each set comes with a fragrance oil, and you simply add a few drops to the back of the cast diffuser. Designs come seasonally, as new flowers and plants become available in creator Clare’s garden, and there are vegan and cruelty-free fragrances to choose from.
5. Needle felting kits, LoveCrafts
Whether it’s for the craftsperson in your life, or for yourself to make and gift to someone else, the kits from LoveCraft exude springtime energy. Needle felting is a simple yet effective craft that is recommended for those aged 10 and up, and these kits include everything you need to create delicate and beautiful items.

8. Letterbox Cheester Eggs, Butlers Cheeses
For savoury taste buds looking for something different, the Letterbox Cheester Eggs from Butler's Cheeses are a tasty twist on the traditional Easter egg.
