We can almost hear our belts egg-spanding from the coming chocolate fest which many of us simply refer to as Easter. Batten down the hatches folks, things are about to become sickly sweet in here! In true Cuckooland style we’re not ones for the usual run of the mill supermarket style chocolate egg hunting whilst hand picking bits of coloured foil out every nook and cranny of the house and garden. Heck no! We rather think of Easter as an egg-citing, egg-travagant and egg-traordinary long weekend of time spent together, away from work and with some luxury chocolate thrown in for good measure. So here it is, our guide to the best Easter treats that are as unique as they are delicious.
Personalised Chocolate Mini Egg Sweet Tree – £18.99
Ok, so lets not divert away from the chocolatey goodness too much. Our first quirky offering is the deliciously tempting Personalised Chocolate Mini Egg Sweet Tree. Treat your loved one to a personalised tree which is available in four sizes with either an edible base of beautiful glass vase. If mini eggs aren’t your thing, we have a full range of sweet trees here which include everything from creme eggs to Liquorice Allsorts. Scrum-diddly-umptious! And add a name for special effect- its free. See our full range of Easter Sweet Trees here.
Ruby Rabbit Slippers – £19.95
The good thing (or not so good thing, depending upon how many of your child’s easter eggs you eat) about Easter is the kids tend to receive an abundance of chocolate from relatives. So if you want an alternative to the sweet stuff we have a range of adorable handcrafted slippers by Sew Heart Felt. The collection includes the sweet-as-a-button Ruby Rabbit slippers, perfect for fans of all things small and cuddly. Sweet-as-a-button but non edible of course.
