For me, Easter is the most beautiful time of year. The weather is still warm enough to enjoy being outside and a few days off work to enjoy the company of family and friends while celebrating with good food including chocolate of course. We like to exchange Easter gifts which are thoughtful gestures rather than lavish gifts. There is none of the panic and pressure that can sometimes be associated with Christmas. It’s really more about spending time together. We do exchange gifts of chocolate and this year we will enjoy giving our ZJOOSH chocolates which have been handmade in Sydney especially for us.
Everyone in our family enjoys chocolate but we’ve been told that there are people who are not chocolate lovers. With this in mind we have thought of some beautiful Easter gift ideas which are entirely sugar free. For the little ones, we have a beautiful collection of plush bunnies and bunny rattles. Our signature ZJOOSH mugs make a gorgeous gift and can be filled with treats other than chocolates of course.
Also on our ZJOOSH Easter gifting table are are beautiful Mindfulness colouring books and colouring cards created but Kylie Johnson as a way of inspiring adults and children to live more mindfully and to practice living in the moment. Adorned with Kylie’s gorgeous signature bunny, these products make an appropriately “Easterish” gift.
With a few extra free days, the Easter break is a great time for entertaining and for being entertained. Having been raised to never arrive anywhere empty handed, I really do love to purchase something lovely for hosts who have no doubt put in hours to prepare food and make their home look lovely. My first choice right now is a stunning pair of salad servers or a beautiful cheese knife from our our new Italian cutlery collection combined with a small box of 6 chocolates to enjoy at the end of the meal.
If we are hosting (which we are this Friday), I do love to make the table suitably festive. Our super cute white bunnies will be gracing our table this year. Two or three placed down the centre of the table amongst some fresh flowers should get everyone in the mood for some Easter fun.
