Just when you think you’re out of the woods with the Festive season (followed all too swiftly by Valentine’s Day), Easter springs out at you, and expectations are high for a chocolate extravaganza! And while a chocolate here and there won’t ordinarily break the bank, a hoard of Easter treats can get expensive.
So with this in mind, here are a few ways you can have a wallet-friendly, happy Easter.
- Make your own Easter egg baskets
Readymade baskets of treats are notoriously over-priced, and not just at Easter. Source your own baskets or cute boxes, and then fill them with chocolates and treats you’ve purchased separately. This way you get to choose exactly what you want in there, and how much. You can spend as much or as little as you like on your Easter baskets – and the kids will be none the wiser.
- Stick to the Favourites
Everyone has their favourite type of chocolate or sweet treat, so stick with an Easter basket filled with your loved one’s favourites and you can’t go wrong. Simple! There’s no need to go all out and buy every different type of chocolate egg that’s on the market, especially if it’s going to go unnoticed. Or even worse, the person you’re giving it to doesn’t like it.
- Prepare a special Easter breakfast feast
It could be that your family isn’t a fan of sweet treats, but you still like to celebrate Easter, so what can you do? A delicious breakfast around the table with loved ones is just as thoughtful as giving a gift. So, why not rather take the time to try and make everyone’s favourite breakfast (eggs, fruit, cereal, pancakes!), and then enjoy it together as a family.
Have a happy Easter!
