It goes without saying that everyone deserves to crack open an egg or 12 at Easter, especially those super-humans amongst us who successfully gave up chocolate for Lent. But at Utility, we think some Easter gifts should last longer than ten seconds. Check out our list of alternative things worth having in your home for this month’s festivities.
From the creators of the softest toys you’ve ever hugged and adored, this Jellycat Bashful Bunny is an endlessly cuddly Easter gift for a little boy or girl who deserves a new toy.
Cadburys aren’t the only eggs to be enjoyed at Easter. These hand painted Bordfolk Eggcups brighten up any table setting, providing a fun and functional way to get that much needed protein fix.
3.LSA Utensil Pot
Easter goes hand in hand with Spring, and what better way to celebrate the season than by adorning your home in greenery? This LSA Utility Utensil Pot acts as a storage jar or a vase, so you can use it to brighten your home with flowers and foliage all year round.
4.Skøjde Wooden Ducks
The serene lakes of Denmark, where ducks paddle peacefully in the spring, are the inspiration for the Skjøde Wooden Ducks from Lucie Kaas. Whatever your interior style, these cute and contemporary home accessories will evoke the harmonious essence of Danish nature in any room.
Just like Easter, pastel colours are reminiscent of spring and nature. The ocean’s light blues, a sunset’s soft pinks, subtle sunshine yellows- these colours just seem to belong together. If you feel like giving your interior a little March makeover, pastels are perfect for adding subtle pops of colour around the home. Check out our favourite lighting, furniture, gifts and home accessories available in pastel colours.
6.LSA Breadbin & Ashboard
If there’s one thing we eat more of than chocolate eggs at Easter, it’s got to be hot cross buns. But where to store them? This Utility Bread Bin from LSA doubles up as a chopping board that captures crumbs, and is available in five bright colours- perfect for a little kitchen decoration this Easter.
7.Loose Leaf Tea
Spring often signals the start of our summer diets, or at least a greater commitment to be healthy following the Easter Easter egg binge. Luckily our health-boosting, lose leaf fruit teas by exotic tea and coffee merchant William Whistle are perfect for a detoxing, caffeine-free pick me up. With a variety of flavours available ranging from Moroccan Mint to Jasmine and Elderflower, there's something for everyones tastebuds.
8.Magis Vigna Table
Warmer weather is upon us, which means more time being spent in the open air. This elegant Vigna Table from Magis is the perfect outdoor table for enjoying a spot of lunch outside on those glorious sunny days, especially when matched with the outdoor Vigna Dining Chair.
9. Orla Kiely Hen Mug
Rabbits might deliver our Easter eggs but it’s hens that lay them. With its distinct retro design and mustard background, this Orla Kiely Hen Mug couldn’t be a better way to enjoy a brew this Easter.
10. Hirameki - Draw What You see
Hirameki - Draw What You See, was inspired when artists Pen & Hu saw a blotch on a cow that looked just like a film star, giving them the idea that even the splodgiest blot could be turned into something amazing. This book is jam packed full of blots that readers can transform into whatever they like. Set to be the biggest creative phenomenon of the year, doodlers of all ages and abilities need to own it.
