Best Easter Eggs and Easter Gifts To Buy In The UK
Easter Egg Tin by The Chocolate Gift Company, £20
If you haven’t heard of The Chocolate Gift Company yet, you need them on your radar. We’ve never seen such beautifully presented chocolates. What started out as a chocolate hamper business has now expanded into a delightful array of cocoa treats. The whole Easter range is worth checking out and prices start from a very reasonable £5.
Love Cocoa Giant Milk Chocolate Easter Egg with Salted Caramel Truffles, £36
Love Cocoa was founded back in 2016 by the great-great-great-grandson of the Cadbury’s chocolate founder. Today, the brand is known for using single-origin cocoa within the top 8% of the finest chocolate in the world. You can also eat their chocolate knowing you’re helping the environment, as Love Cocoa plants a tree for every single product they sell. New to their collection is the Giant Milk Chocolate Easter Egg with Salted Caramel Truffles. Perfect for even the biggest chocoholic.
Fortnum & Mason Spring Gift Box, £50
Fortnums pull it out the bag at any time of year, but how lovely is their Spring Gift Box, which you could send before or after Easter. Packed with springtime treats, it features their famous Piccadilly Lemon Curd Biscuits, Pastel Sugared Almonds and Matchbox Bunnies. You get Earl Green Tea with Elderflower Loose Leaf Tea and Raspberry & Rhubarb Conserve included. We also love the Easter Eggs of Many Colours Iced Biscuits (£17.95) and The Happy Easter Basket (£70).
Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Champagne Easter Egg, £30
This luxury Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Champagne Easter Egg is definitely just for adults. Lavishly thick, and made from milk chocolate and strawberry-white chocolate, it’s bursting with champagne truffles inside. We’re also fans of the Extra Thick Patisserie Easter Egg (£30), which is half brownie, half salted caramel cheesecake. Double Yum!
Claridge’s Art Deco Easter Egg, £65
For the crème de la crème of Easter eggs, treat someone you love to a Claridge’s Easter Egg. Each one is made entirely by hand and takes three whole days to create. Crafted using the finest milk, dark and white Valrhona chocolate, they are generously filled with hazelnut and almond praline gull’s eggs. Beautifully presented, each egg comes wrapped in Art Deco monochrome foil, bound with black ribbon and put in a Claridge’s signature jade gift box.
Coco Chocolatier hampers, from £50
This Easter gift wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery, as all the chocolate at Edinburgh-based chocolate brand Coco Chocolatier design is designed in collaboration with artists. Choose from chocolate bars to eggs served in an egg box and their collection of chic chocolate hampers like the one pictured above.
Gåva Reusable Easter Eggs, from £12
Gåva (pronounced gaw-vah) means ‘gift’ in Swedish and this eco-friendly brand brings the Scandinavian art of mindful gifting to the UK. Like Christmas stockings, they are designed to be reused year after year and can be used to hold any number of thoughtful surprises, from gift vouchers and jewellery to traditional high quality chocolates. Pictured is the Limited Edition Gin & Tonic Ägg (£19.50).
Selfridges Selection Easter Treats Hamper, £100
Easter isn’t only about eggs, and Selfridges likes to find as many ways as possible to add maximum chocolate to the celebrations. Their Easter Treats Hamper seems to have everything under the sun from Salted Caramel Praline Milk Chocolate Bars and Hot Cross Caramels to Praline Quail Eggs, and even Cocoa Tea Bags. Other Easter gifts include the White Chocolate and Cherry Easter Egg (£34.99) and the Milk and White Chocolate Box of Chicks (£10.99).
Cutter & Squidge Easter Selection, from £21.99
Cutter & Squidge say they’ve gone ‘a little eggs-tra this Easter’ – and we’d certainly agree given this year’s Easter egg range.

They also have a Vegan Cookies and Cream Egg option (£22.99). For gifting, send the Mini Easter Chocolate Hamper (£45.99) or the Mixed Easter Biskie Box (£23.99).

For vegan friends and family members, gift this cute Earl Grey Tea Infused Vegan Easter Egg from Bird & Blend Tea Co. The large Easter egg is made from thick artisan vegan chocolate by Only Coco and infused with Early Grey Creme Tea. Hidden inside, you’ll find Earl Grey Creme tea bags.
Melt Luxury Easter Eggs, from £24.99
Melt make luxury handmade chocolates in the heart of London’s Notting Hill and we’re loving their Easter offerings this year. Favourites include the Acorn Easter Egg (£34.99) which is half milk and half 70% dark chocolate covered by a nutty almond rocher cup. The egg is designed and hand-crafted in-house, paying homage to how acorns have a special relationship with Great Britain.
Chirp by Anden, £49
Easter isn’t only about chocolate and Easter eggs. It’s also about the dawn of spring and new beginnings. One thing everyone loves about this time of year is the sweet sounds of birds chirping. Anden has created an alternative Easter gift that pays homage to a bird’s call by creating Iroko and Maple wood bird sculptures that, when twisted, let out a lively tune. The birds are handmade in England and you can choose between a dark Iroko top or lighter Maple top.
