7 Alternatives to a Chocolate Bunny
Easter has arrived, and although the days of easter egg hunts and chocolate bunnies may have passed (although seriously, I’m never too old for a chocolate bunny), there are still some springtime festivities that might require a small token of thanks, love, or appreciation. In case you have a grudge against chocolate (why, I ask you, why???), here are some alternative ideas for your Easter basket.
1- These vintage-inspired lavender glasses ($8 each) would make a pretty hostess gift, especially paired with a bottle of festive bubbly.
2- Macarons, the light as air french confections, are always a sweet treat, and their pastel hues are totally apropos for the season. In Toronto, Nadège Patisserie makes some of the best.
3- The bunnies and eggs on this illustrated card ($4.50) are the quintessential Easter greeting.
4- The latest issue of Darling magazine ($20) turns the lens on pretty springtime scenes, perfect for the darling in your life.
5- The soft hues of these linen napkins ($19.50 for a set of 4) are reminiscent of the dip-dyed eggs of childhood arts and crafts.
6- A bouquet of fresh white tulips marks the new beginnings of Easter and Spring.
7- A pretty notebook ($16.95 for a set of 2), designed by the doyenne of effortless French chic, Garance Doré, lets someone know their thoughts are worth noting.
