Sick of chocolate? Check out these alternative Easter gifts!


If you want to treat someone special this Easter Sunday but don't want to just add another egg to the pile, there are some great spring-themed gifts out there that are sure to make them smile.

Here are a few of our favourites…

1. Fun and flirty
Alex & Ani's new collection, The Road to Romance, is perfect for spring. This floral and dusky gold bracelet is definitely on our wish list.

Alex & Ani Road to Romance Wrap, €41, Kilkenny Shop

2. Hang it up
Allow some seasonal colour into your home with this gorgeous butterfly wall art – it'll last longer than an egg, too!

Butterfly Wall Art, €18.63,

3. Sweet tooth
Okay, this one is technically an egg but with a touch of sophistication. M&S' Coffee Lover's Egg is loaded with hazelnut nibs and dark chocolate coated Costa Rican coffee beans, with additional Italian coffee hazelnuts. Pure decadence.

The Coffee Lover's Egg, €11.99, M&S

4. Simple scent
A spring/summer perfume is a great Easter gift that is as far away from a chocolate egg as you can get. Roger & Gallet have just launched their first Eau de Parfum, Fleur de Figuier, enriched with notes of fig bud, mandarin, pink pepper and patchouli. We love the bottle, too.

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum, €49, M&S and selected pharmacies

5. Colourful and chic
If you want something sweet in the spirit of Easter but aren't keen on chocolate, treat someone (or yourself) to a stunning box of Ladurée macarons – their Easter range is available at Brown Thomas now.
