When we think of Easter the first thing to "Spring" to mind (apart from the whole meaning behind it of course) is supposedly warmer weather, children enjoying school holidays and eating Easter Eggs for breakfast. And as such we have lots of lovely Easter Gift Baskets For Kids to enjoy. You can read more about our Children's Easter Gifts here.
However, it's also about family time and celebrating together so we didn't want the grown ups to be left out either. This is when Lindt comes into it's own and the adults are treated to a Golden Lindt Chocolate Egg and the iconic Gold Bunny.
We were actually ahead of our time and used to offer Easter Gift Baskets for Adults many years ago. These would contain posh chocolates and characters, fancy Easter Eggs and other Spring time favourites. Selina (i.e Mum) even made the teddy bear a little bunny suit! However, we found they weren't ordered nearly as frequently as the versions for children & so the range wasn't revisited and expanded upon for another number of years.
Roll on another 10 years and our Golden Easter range and Easter Lions range have more than just this to offer though. As well as the Easter themed items there are plenty of other treats to be discovered and enjoyed in our Grown Up Easter Baskets.
Our Golden Easter Basket has been the star of the Easter show for the past few years now. Including both golden themed items by Lindt, a large Easter Egg and Gold Bunny. These are then built upon with a variety of other well known chocolate brands such as Butlers Chocolates and Lily O'Brien Chocolates. There are also chocolates from smaller artisan producers such as Skellig's handmade truffles and Montezuma chocolate bar & buttons. To add a bit of crunch you'll also find organic Kilbeggan cookies and Tregroes Toffee Waffles.
The Golden Easter Basket also comes with added extra's such as the addition of freshly baked goods to turn the gift into the Golden Bakery Basket, or some drinks to turn it into the Golden Wine Easter Basket. So options to suit all tastes and budgets.
Our Lions range of Easter Hampers came about by celebrating lots of grown up favourites treats and the luxurious golden Lindt egg to theme it for Easter. They range in price from the Easter Lions Victoria at £46 to the Easter Lions Piccadilly at £105. The Waterloo versions is most appealing with it's tea, biscuits, popcorn, cake, chocolate covered fruit and waffles and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc form New Zealand.
Not only looking fabulous, but this Easter themed Chocolate & Flowers Gift will also leave them feeling fabulous when they get their hands on all the amazing treats inside. Those Easter Egg and Gold Bunny themed items make an appearance again, alongside shortbread, chocolate cake, chocolate sauce, handmade fudge and a pretty potted flowering plant.
This is just a small selection of the Easter Gift Baskets For Grown Ups that we offer. We also find Customers selecting Wine & Cheese Hampers or Deli Meat Hampers as Easter presents as well. Sometimes it is because they now live abroad and so are missing home and want their family to enjoy a lovely meal over the holiday period. We also have lots of international Customers who have children studying or working in the UK or Ireland now and wish to send them a gift at Easter time. And of course, we also have lots of UK and Irish Customers living in different towns or cities to their family and so send a gift if they can't make it in person.
Just a reminder too that the delivery companies in the UK close down for Easter and so do not operate on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Ireland tend to take Easter Monday and Tuesday off instead. Therefore if you are thinking of sending an Easter Gift Basket, please order by 3.30pm on the Wednesday so as we can schedule delivery for Thursday. For deliveries in ROI you have until 3.30pm on Thursday and please place orders on our BG Euro site.
Any special requests please do not hesitate to chat with our online operators, give us a call or a quick email. We're 'hoppy' to help!
