Five Alternative Gifts to Easter Eggs

April is upon us, and it’s nearly that time of year again. Pastel colors, egg hunts, and best of all: chocolate! But don’t go thinking that the Easter holidays need to revolve around the kids this year – adults can get in on that action too. If you’ve been shopping around for an adult Easter gift and aren’t keen on another basket of eggs, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a five great ideas for gifts this Easter:

1

A Personalized Gift

A Personalized Gift

There’s no better way to show someone what they mean to you than by giving them a truly personalized gift. There are loads of beautiful DIY gift ideas you can try for yourself at home, such as unique homemade candles or Easter-themed wreaths.
Better yet, if you want to make it really personal (and if you’re a little short on time), why not try superimposing a sentimental family photo of the recipient onto something you know they would cherish forever? Anim8.lk allows you to personalize anything from mugs, cushions, clocks and calendars, so browse through the gifts you think would go over best and place your order in time for it to arrive for your Easter celebrations!

A Bottle of Wine (or two!)

A Bottle of Wine (or two!)

It doesn’t get more sophisticated than a bottle of your favorite wine! Get a giant chocolate egg for the kiddies, and a nice fancy bottle of vino to split between the adults. Feel free to bring a bottle you know your hosts will enjoy, but if you’re bringing the wine along to an Easter meal, try and plan it so that the wine pairs with the food. Roasted dinners (both with or without meat) tend to be served with a higher salt content, meaning that a bold red wine like the Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon from Wineworld would pair best, while a wine like the sparkling Charles De Fère Jean-Louis Blanc De Blancs Demi Sec would be better suited to finger foods like hot-cross buns. Just remember that wines are notoriously difficult to pair with chocolates themselves, should you choose to indulge. If you must have both, try the Taylors Fine Ruby port, which pairs really well with dark chocolate!

The Gift of an Experience

The Gift of an Experience

While static gifts can tend to be the norm, why not think outside the box and offer your loved ones the gift of an experience? Try and think of a fun day of activities that everyone can enjoy and that can be really memorable. Of course, with kids around, this can be a difficult gift to achieve, but there are plenty of options!
For instance, The Marina offers a “Gift a Dream” gift voucher that acts as a day pass to the premises and allows access to its pool and a jet-ski ride on Bolgoda Lake. This promises to make this Easter loads of fun for family and friends, and is sure to create memories that last a lifetime!

An Adult Easter Basket

An Adult Easter Basket

Why do kids get to have all the fun? Surprise your friends and family this Easter with their very own grown-up Easter basket! This can act as a free-for-all that you can stuff full of goodies sure to delight, and it isn’t limited to chocolate (although stick some of that in there too)! Great ideas for a luxurious adult basket includes candles, soaps, and bath salts. You could also add body care products for the ladies and beard-grooming treatments for gents! To make it appear more Easter-themed, try and use pastel-colored gift paper in patterns like polka dots! Finally, stick in a simple card in the shape of a rabbit or an egg, sign your name, and voila!

Tea!

Tea!

Gathered from the lush tropical tea estates of Sri Lanka, Ceylon tea has made it to almost everyone's list of household essentials. Add a bit of tropics to your Easter basket or simply gift someone a collection of Zesta's finest Ceylon tea. Whether you're looking for a wellness tea or a morning tea, add a touch of Ceylon tea to your gift.
