    With the current crisis currently pervading many of our everyday conversations, it can be easy to forget some of the sweeter things in life (pun intended).

    Easter is fast approaching and I for one, almost forgot it ever existed. With shops exposing bare aisles and stripped of many of our everyday essentials, the Easter eggs nevertheless still sit jubilantly and totally untouched.

    I realise they perhaps don’t seem high priority right now but why not inject some fun and normality back into your life?

    Whether sat at home binging on old Netflix films or trying your best to WFH productively, there’s definitely still time to get your hands on one of these.  

    Grab one now and save it for later or get a few so you can munch on one everyday in the run up to Easter (just a suggestion).

    best Easter eggs

    Because let’s face it, the most exciting part of Easter shopping is, of course, the selection of the dream Easter Egg. And rest assured, 2020 is so far serving up some cracking (get it?) choices.

    Are you shopping for a loved one? A child? A parent? A co-worker? Your boss? Or, like most of us, yourself? Well, whoever you’re buying for and whatever your budget, we’ve found an egg for everyone.

    So whether you’re looking for the super luxe hand-painted offering (you know, the ones that wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery) or the classic Cadbury’s eggs that come with a mug (#nostalgia), we’ve got you covered.

    Not to mention vegan chocolate lovers, there’s a whole other round up for you on the best vegan easter eggs to scour through. You’re welcome.

    And it’s good news for the savoury lovers, too: stores are increasingly catering to a less sweet sensibility, with M&S coming up with the genius idea of Easter eggs made of cheddar and Red Leicester (yes, really) and Walker’s Sensations bringing out a crisp egg, for those less keen on the sweet treats. 

    If there’s a theme for this year’s Easter egg offering, it’s all things bright and beautiful: from intricate piping to ruby-tinged chocolate, these Easter eggs are almost too good to eat. (Emphasis on the almost.)

    But for the crème de la crème of Easter eggs, this year we’re going artisanal. We’re talking hand-painted luxury from Fortnum & Mason, and delicious chocolate eggs (with some very chic legs) from Harvey Nichols.

    Warning: you might just want to be eating (or in close proximity to) a piece of chocolate while you’re scrolling through the following. You’re about to feel rather hungry.

    Now sit back, scroll and let your mouth water…
