At Baskets Galore we've been creating Easter Gifts for nearly 20 years. We've known for quite a while now, that an individual Easter egg just doesn't cut it when it comes to an Easter Gift Basket. We wants eggs yes, by also more. Here we discuss how we set ourselves apart from the crowd when it comes to Easter gifting.
History of the Easter Egg
The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with Christianity and the celebration of Spring for hundreds of years. The first chocolate Easter egg actually appeared in France and Germany in the 19th century. They were however solid, very bitter and very expensive. Fry’s (a UK chocolate company) was the first company to use a mould to make the eggs hollow inside. This technique was snapped up two years later by Cadbury’s, and well, the rest is history.
Easter Gift Basket - Because Less is Never More
Today, according to a survey carried out by Statista, over 80 million boxed Easter Eggs are sold across the UK. We know that the humble chocolate egg is the traditional gift of choice at Easter. However, at Baskets Galore, we say why be predictable when you can be exceptional. We say less, is never more. Why gift an egg when you can gift an egg and then some this Easter? With a beautifully presented and completely delicious Easter Gift Basket. The perfect Easter statement when the traditional Easter egg doesn’t quite hit the mark. And after the past few months we’ve all had, everyone deserves to be spoiled this Easter.
Easter Gift Basket for Big Children
Easter is one of the only times in the year when we are encouraged to throw all diets out of the window and indulge a little. It awakens a feeling of nostalgia and allows us to be transported to our childhoods. So with all this in mind, we didn’t want the grown-ups or older children to feel left out. This is why we create a number of gift baskets that contain slightly more sophisticated Easter goodies, while still maintaining a sense of fun.
