Introducing the charming Easter gift collection from none other than Laura Ashley. Growing up, my mum used to make all sorts of dresses and homeware from Laura Ashley fabric, synonymous with British charm and designs influenced by all things countryside. These days, I love pottering about in the accessories section of their shops trying to resist buying floral duvet number 8374940. So you can imagine my joy at the most recent Easter collections, with and exciting giveaway for my readers too.
The delightful range features Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs, luxurious truffles and Easter chick marshmallows, all in an endearing pastel palette reminiscent of Spring. You could easily find a fun Easter gift for a child as well as something mum would love.
So first up, something for the littl'uns. Although I would totally be down with this as an Easter gift. This is Hettie Bunny's Hen House (£6) - except instead it's full of yummy chocolate eggs. This would be perfect for a gift or a prize for an Easter egg hunt winner!
They'll without a doubt love the Easter Chick Marshmallows and Chocolate Mini Eggs - who wouldn't? I would say these would also be good for Easter treats, but I've already eaten half the pack...
For Easter gifts with an extra something, the Bunny Rabbit Ceramic Mug (£10) with milk chocolate egg is just the ticket. This is a lovely sturdy mug (I should know, I've tested it with a few Earl Greys already) in a mellow yellow with a cute little furry face.
A charming gift to make, bake and enjoy. The Shortbread Baking Kit comes with an adorable bunny biscuit cutter and all the ingredients you need to make an Easter baking treat. Not to mention a lovely floral keepsake tin. I've had a little go with the cutter already, as my Instagram pals may have already seen, so watch this space for a recipe this week.
Last but not least, my favourite is the Easter Egg filled with chocolate truffles (£10). I'm having to resist breaking into this as I know my mum will love it, so planning on giving it her for Easter. If you're reading, Hi Mum, sorry I've spoilt the surprise! This again features the wonderful illustrated tulip and daffodil design and a matching yellow bow. If you forgot Mother's Day - this is definitely one to get back in the good books!
