What do you think of when someone says Easter to you? Sunday Service? Hot-cross buns? Easter egg hunts? Chocolate? The Easter bunny?

Easter might mean something different for everyone, but for everyone, it is a holiday filled with fun and joy – especially if there are little ones in your midst.

In this blog, we’re thinking about Easter gifts in Northwich. Some people opt for the traditional pile of Easter chocolate eggs to celebrate the occasion, whereas others choose an Easter gift that has a little more lasting power – so, Easter chocolates or Easter gifts: which is best?

Why choose a different gift this year?

Although chocolate Easter eggs are often seen as the most traditional gift to buy on Easter Sunday, in recent years there has been a shift away from the mountains of chocolates.

Why? Well, the rise of healthy eating and promoting good food choices for ourselves and our children has had it’s part to play, but more than this, people are beginning to realise chocolate gifts have a very short life-span.

Once those chocolate eggs are eaten, they’re gone, and the Easter gift is no more. Even if you spent time picking out the perfect egg with a hand-written icing message it isn’t something your recipient can keep and enjoy for months or years to come like some other alternatives.

Don’t worry though- we’re not suggesting you say goodbye to the chocolate altogether (we aren’t crazy!). We think having just one Easter egg or a smaller chocolate Easter egg hunt on the morning is a great fun way to celebrate, Sainsbury’s and other stores have great deals on cheaper egg-hunt kits, but the main event can be much more special with an Easter gift that has more meaning.

On balance, gifts win out for us as much more meaningful and thoughtful presents. It’s something to keep that will be worth more than just one tasty snack, and often you can choose something more personal to the individual too.
