Easter 2015 Gift Guide

Oh hey! Is it just me or is Easter kind of under rated as a public holiday? It comes in a pretty close second after Christmas for me. Why? Because its primary marker is food, obv. A four day weekend that often includes families getting round the table to eat a big old hunk of meat then gorge themselves on chocolate, it is so my style. Easter also marks a whole year since I started Cate in the Kitchen, my how time flies! I’ve got such a special giveaway coming really soon so keep your eyes peeled. In the mean time, here’s a few things I’ve picked out this Easter – you could rush out and buy them right now, or give it a couple days and go pick em up in the sales. I’m just saying… #halfpricechocolate.

Easter Eggs for Grownups

All of the chocolate shops bring it so hard at Easter, there’s been some really weird concepts this year (I’m looking at you pot noodle, and you marmite) which I refuse to include. I love the idea of Montezuma’s eco egg, stripping back all that packaging is something I’d love to see more of!

Easter Eggs for Kids

Some of these things – nay, all of these things – are just the cutest. Forgive me for being oh-s0-mainstream and including the creme egg box but it was a firm favourite for me as a kid – and still is now! I think my favourite of the lot has got to be that white chocolate sheep, sweetest illustration of the year award, Waitrose know what they’re doing.

Treats Without the Chocolate

An essential. Not everyone likes chocolate and some people – god save ’em – are on a diet, but that doesn’t mean you should turn up to their house for a leg of lamb empty handed.

Easter Gifts that aren't chocolate

John Lewis egg shaped candles £4 // Marks and Spencer easter bunny mug £7.60 // Lakeland egg basket £18.99 // Paperchase carrot spoon and fork set £12.50 // Meri Meri Easter range in-store at Selfridges

  1. I am tempted by the Marc de champagne egg! I made Easter Bunny shaped saffron brioches for Easter and I am staying home and chilling 🙂 Happy Easter!

    • Ooh wow I love a brioche!! I made a parsnip cake at the request of my Mum today, not very Easter-like but hey, perhaps I’ll make a batch of hot cross buns tomorrow. Have a good one x
