Easter gifts & craft inspiration

Easter and chocolate. A partnership that has been going strong since the 19th century. They go hand-in-hand together - like salt and pepper or bread and butter. As appreciative as I am to still receive Easter eggs, the excitement of receiving an Easter egg - and chocolate in general - is kind of lost on me now. Maybe I've just hit that age. Earlier this week I found lots of inspiring Easter gift and craft ideas on Pinterest - perfect if you have children and want ideas for the up-and-coming bank holiday weekend. But equally inspiring if, like me, you don't. Has Easter become monotonous? It doesn't have to be...


How cute are these jam jar vases?! Fill them with Easter treats, bright cereals and sweets


Candy carrots are easy to make - just place orange sweets into an icing bag 


Rabbit food! Fill with dried snacks like cereal, pretzels and mini biscuits


Carrot play dough! I'm in my 20's and I'm still excited by Play Dough!


Egg shell candles in egg cups


A packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds is a cute gift idea
As is home made carrot cake in a jar with a home made gift tag and twine:

There is now even a market for pets. With safe Easter treats for dogs that aren't chocolate:

Pets at Home - £1.75                                                    Pets at home - £5


In recent years advent calendars have evolved to variations without chocolate as discussed here and here. So maybe it will only be time until Easter eggs follow suit. Because if faced with choice between an Easter egg filled with sweets or an Easter egg filled with beauty treats, I know which one I would choose. Especially if there was a speckled egg effect nail polish inside. Because nothing says Easter like having your nails resemble Cadbury's mini eggs

What would be hiding inside your ideal Easter egg?
