Now I’m a great lover of chocolate, I have rather large bottom and thighs as proof, but that doesn’t mean you want the entire contents of Asda’s chocolate aisle showing up at your doorstep over one weekend. So I have pulled together some fab alternatives to chocolate for the kids and the grown ups.
Your very own Chickedy and Chick from the Twirlywoos, the cutest and smallest members of the Twirlywoos family and the adorable Talking Chickedy and Chick soft toys really bring the characters to life. Super-soft and cuddly, little ones will love squeezing their tummies to hear them say their signature phrases from the show. Only £9.99 and available from Argos, Amazon, Smyths, Very.co.uk, Toys R Us and The Entertainer.
Nothing says spring quite like ducklings and this lovely watercolour will last a lot longer than a chocolate egg. Duck Team, is an original watercolour painting by Nata Zaikina that you can find at Artfinder. The small one is only £19.40, so you can have a beautiful piece of original art in your house this Easter.
Just in time for Easter BRITA have released their brand new pastel Marella jugs. Each jug holds up to 2.4L and fits perfectly into the fridge door, with a pastel flash of colour on the flip top lid and handy reminder to change your filter these jugs are the perfect way to enjoy cold, fresh filtered water all year round. They are £22.00 and available from BRITAs online shop as well as on the high street.
If you still fancy a little something sweet why not have an Easter themed movie night with the new limited edition Hot Cross Bun flavoured popcorn from Butterkist. It’s a bit sweet a bit spicy and a bit zesty. Delicious. In 150g sharing bags it’s great for the whole family and is only £1.49 a bag.
This will be the only egg I feature in this guide, a dinosaur egg! These big, soft eggs from the Natural History Museum crack open to reveal a baby dinosaur finger puppet. So much fun. Once you are done playing you can pop your little dino back in it’s egg ready and waiting for next time. £12.00 each with a range of dinosaurs to chose from you can find them in The National History Museum shop.
Disclosure – I was gifted some of these items for consideration in my guide, I have only included those I love.
