13 Easter Gift Ideas That Aren’t Chocolate
Step aside Lindt bunnies, we’re bringing out the big guns…
If you’re an avid Gritty Pretty reader then you’ll know that, among other things, we love an excuse to give (and receive) gifts. Traditionally reserved for chocolates and hot cross buns, Easter is a time to celebrate new life and spend quality time with loved ones to reconnect and rejuvenate after the busy start to the year.
This year, we think it’s about time we all upped our Easter gift giving game to 1) reduce the chocolate hangovers as much as possible and 2) treat our nearest and dearest to products or experiences that they actually want. Stumped on where to begin? We’re one step ahead of you. Here, our favourite Easter gift ideas that aren’t of the cocoa variety…
Go-To Repair Shop Mask
Use the four days off to get your skin back to its best self with the Go-To Repair Shop mask. A nourishing barrier repair mask made specifically to rescue, soothe and restore your complexion, this is the perfect way to rejuvenate your skin after a weekend of chocolate eggs.
Emma Lewisham Illuminating Brighten Your Day Creme
Falling smack bang in the middle of the transition into the cooler months, Easter is the perfect time to work on maintaining your summer glow into winter. Cue: Emma Lewisham’s Illuminating Brighten Your Day Creme. Providing 72 hours of hydration and working to gently exfoliate the skin, this is the perfect gift for the beauty junkie in your life.

Ideal for the transeasonal period, this silky formula will perfect the complexion and maintain radiance with ease.

Who doesn’t love a luxe night at the ballet? Answer: no one. Spoil your nearest and dearest with an experience just as decadent as 90 per cent dark chocolate and get some ballet tickets under your belt. You’ll be the favourite family member for sure.
Cheese Making Class
Gouda, cheddar, brie, oh my! If you’re more a cheese-platter-over-chocolate person then a cheese making class is the perfect gift for your friends this Easter. Gather your girlfriends and grab a bottle of your favourite bubbly and prepare to create the creamiest ricotta you’ve ever tasted.
