It’s probably a bad idea to start putting this post together whilst I am trying to eat healthily but what the heck I’ve done it for you anyway and might have put on a few pounds in the process 😉 Easter is right around the corner, my absolute favourite time of year… not just for the chocolate but for Spring, lambs, chicks, tulips, daffodils and the other wonderful things that come with it so I’m feeling pretty chirpy right now! I’ve put together a few Easter treats to give you some ideas of what you can pick up for Easter at the moment. Enjoy xx
Easter is the perfect time for new bikes, the weather is getting better and the nights are getting lighter meaning there is much more time to get outdoors for family bike rides. Bugs is ready for a new bike now so he will be getting one this Easter. We didn’t bother at Christmas incase he had a growth spurt so he will be getting one that is the perfect size for him right now. Daddy is a avid cyclist and has always been a big fan of Ridgeback bikes so Bugs will be getting the Ridgeback MX20… I really can’t wait to see his face 🙂
Perfectly proportioned to provide small riders the best fit for comfort and control, a Ridgeback kid’s bike is easily adjustable to keep up pace with a growing child. The handlebar stem design allows easy adjustment as the child grows whilst a high quality saddle and soft grips provide the necessary comfort when learning to cycle.
From Scoot beginner bike to 24” wheel, all bikes have a light aluminium frame and high quality specifications providing the durability to allow them to be passed on to a second child. All Ridgeback kid’s bikes meet the relevant ISO safety standards.
HARIBO have some perfect treats available just for Easter. I am obsessed with HARIBO especially the fizzy ones so I may have hidden these away for myself 😉

How about something different from an Easter Egg this year? You won’t go wrong with these amazing chocolate pizzas from The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company! They do chocolate pizzas to suit every occasion, this one is actually made for Mother’s Day but they have them especially for Easter too! They are absolutely delicious and make a fantastic gift at any time of the year!
Meantime’s Chocolate Porter (£21.99 for a case of 12 x 330ml bottles) is one for the grown ups who like a nice beer! The natural mocca flavours of the four different roasted malts used to brew this rich, dark beer are complemented by the addition of real chocolate during maturation. Warm, complex and smooth, it has a long, clean finish. It is an ideal digestif and dessert beer to replace the traditional Easter egg, it is also a superb match for the meat and game stews you may well be indulging in on Easter Sunday!
Plamil Organic Fairtrade Bow-Tie Easter Bunny (£3.49) – A fun Easter Bow-Tie Bunny sitting on a box of ethically made Organic and Fairtrade milk chocolate alternative mini half eggs. A great gift that has no milk, no gluten and no nuts.
