Easter is just around the corner and whether you’re visiting friends or family for lunch, or planning a fun-packed day out with little ones, you’re sure to need an Easter treat or two to brighten their day.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration, we’ve put together our top picks of Easter gifts available at The Centre.
If ever there’s a time to indulge in all things chocolate, Easter is it and a chocolate egg is the perfect treat for young and old alike.
Thorntons have a delectable range of chocolate and hand finished Easter Eggs - our favourite has to be The Gruffalo Egg for £4. This wonderful milk chocolate egg with white chocolate, dark chocolate and orange and green coloured decoration will bring smiles to the face of every little Gruffalo fan.
If you’re looking for an Easter Egg that’s guaranteed to delight their gourmet tastebuds, try the stunning octagonal hand painted chocolate egg, £12, from M&S. Crafted in exquisite Belgian chocolate it comes with mini Marc de Champagne shimmering truffles.
Easter is the perfect time to get together with loved ones - why not host your own Easter tea party? You can set the scene with Next’s cute and colourful hanging decorations for just £4 or pop along to Poundland where you’ll find fluffy chicks and egg decorations for just £1.
If you’re visiting friends, a ceramic bunny sweetie holder, £6.99, from TK Maxx, would make a cute gift – simply fill it with mini eggs for a treat they’ll love. Or, if you’re a dab hand in the kitchen, pick up a tiered cake stand, £30, from Debenhams, then pack it with homemade treats!
Why not host an Easter Egg hunt with chocolate eggs and treats hidden around the house or in the garden if the weather permits! Next even has a beautiful set of six colourful signs for £8 to help guide children to their treats. Kids will also need somewhere to store their prizes - why not pop along to TK Maxx where you’ll find a carrot basket for £4.99 that even the Easter Bunny would be proud of!
Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit is loved by children everywhere and is a fail-safe choice for a gift, especially at Easter. For fans of cuddly toys, head to Build-A-Bear where you can pick up Peter Rabbit for £18.50. You can even add his signature jean jacket and 5-in-1 phrases to the special movie edition bunny.
If you have a new baby to buy for, a pair of Peter Rabbit Booties, £14 from Debenhams, would make a wonderful Easter-themed gift - these adorable booties are super soft and come with cute embroidered features and a rattle in each toe.
For mini-fashionistas accessories are the perfect Easter treat. Claire’s has a fantastic selection of bags, watches, hats and sunglasses, but for a novelty gift to brighten their day choose the Chick Jelly Coin Purse for £8.
Treat your tween to a fun bedroom update with an Easter twist with a bunny cushion, £5 from Primark or a selection of on-trend pastel nail varnish from Superdrug - Easter themed nail art is optional!
Keep the kids busy over the Easter holidays with Wilko’s bumper Easter Craft Project Pack for £5 with seven fun craft projects for little ones to make. The craft projects are suitable for ages 3 and up and include a paper chain garland, bunting, a happy Easter sign, a photo frame and much more providing hours of crafting fun.
Over at Accessorize sweet bunny motifs, pastel shades and cute designs adorn their purses, jewellery and bags for the perfect Easter Gifts. With wooden handles shaped like bunnies, their skipping rope is a must for any child’s toy box.
If you’re searching for a fun game to keep little ones entertained, Elefun is an energetic must-have treat that’s guaranteed to have everyone giggling! Elefun blows his trunk straight up sending colourful fireflies into the air while players race to catch as many as they can in their nets. £25, The Entertainer.
