15 fab Easter gift ideas for adults who don’t want chocolate
By Sophie Carter - 22nd March 2023
As the sunny shades of spring daffodils pepper landscapes and the supermarket shelves are brimming with chocolate goodies, we begin to get excited for Easter celebrations. For many, spending quality time with family and friends is what Easter is all about, and gifting delicious chocolate is a great way to signify the end of lent and the beginning of brighter times. But who says a spring pick-me-up needs to be something edible? Certainly not us. We believe that gifting at any time of the year should be joyful and personal to the recipient, to guarantee the widest smile the moment they tear off the paper.
If you're looking to gift something significant to someone special, it's sometimes worthwhile thinking outside the box. While chocolate is scrummy, it only lasts a moment, and you might be looking for a treat or trinket they can treasure for time to come. We've compiled a list of our top 15 personal, practical, and truly delightful Easter gifts for him or for her that bear no similarities to the infamous egg.
For fans of fancy florals
While florals for spring might be notoriously un-groundbreaking, it's always nice to pop a flash of floral into the home as the weather begins to warm up. Whether it's a fresh bunch of colourful tulips you slot into a vase on the kitchen counter, or a new floral print to adorn your walls, beautiful botanics provide a simple way to add colour and fun to your space. Want to gift a loved one a fab floral without involving physical flowers? Our stunning new range of floral ceramics make adorable additions to the home. Choose a piece to suit their lifestyle from teapots to trinket dishes, or if you're feeling generous, why not gift them a few pieces from the range to build the perfect spring-themed present?
You can even continue the floral theme through to their personal accessories. Our beautiful Pink Floral Positivity Planner is a fab piece of stationery they'll not be able to live without. Packed full of daily tasks, uplifting exercises, and positive affirmations, this handy planner is a great piece to encourage mindfulness as we head into a new season. Sometimes all they need is a thoughtful pick-me-up gift to remind them just how loved they are, and what better time to do this than at Easter?
For the jewellery obsessed
Jewellery makes a great gift for all occasions, so why not surprise them with a sweet spring trinket at the dawn of a new season? Florals are famously synonymous with spring, and nature-themed jewellery makes the perfect pretty present they can wear through to the next seasons. Our Mismatched Daisy and Bee Huggies come in three gorgeous metal colours, meaning you can treat them to an accessory that truly suits their style. If you're looking for something special for a lover of more masculine styles, our Personalised Mixed Metal Chain Bracelet is the perfect piece for combining style with sentiment. Many of our other jewellery pieces are able to be personalised too, so you can gift him or her a treasure that's both timeless and unique.
For lovers of a tasty tipple
As the warmer weather approaches, drink lovers will be ready to get their cocktail parties in the diary and will need to get stocking up on some quirky cocktail ingredients. Why not make their life easier by gifting them all the products they need to get crafting some delightful drinks? Our cocktail kits are packed with tasty ingredients to whip up a few classic cocktails and some more unique tipples for two, perfect for sharing with a friend or loved one as soon as the sun starts to shine. If they're more into their classics, a tasty bottle of gin will never go amiss. Our Better Than An Easter Egg Gin provides the perfect opportunity to turn the tradition of chocolate egg gifting on its head. Your loved one will be thrilled with a delicious drink to add to their barware collection, not to mention a quirky bottle to remind them of such a fabulously fun Easter gift! We also offer wine in this range too, so those with more traditional tastes can still get in on the novelty gifting fun.
For the home accessory collector
Spring is the perfect time to switch up some interior styles and play about with brighter shades and softer textures in the home. Our extensive range of delightful dried flowers provides both colour and vibrancy to bring a dash of spring fields into the home. Whether they adore neutrals or have a preference for pastels, we've got a bouquet, posy, or token for them, all of which are made entirely in-house by our expert flower team at The Norfolk Flower Room. Our dried flowers are sustainable and long-lasting too, meaning their beauty can be enjoyed well into future seasons.
If you're keen to go down the more personal route with a practical home accessory, our wonderful range of engraved glassware is the perfect place to start. We have glasses in all shapes and sizes, for all drinks and occasions, each of which can be engraved with a name or wording of your choice to create a handy piece of barware they'll want to show off at every event!
For the eternally organised
If they have a thing for travel or they just love to be organised, a practical accessory makes a must-have gift. Looking for the perfect present for a tech-savvy traveller? Our Personalised 3rd Generation Airpods Cases are made from smooth vegan leather and come in a choice of three classic colours. Better still, you can add their initials to the case to make it a practical piece that is completely unique to them. If you're searching for a gorgeous gift for a jewellery lover whose collection is big enough, why not treat them to a pretty personalised jewellery case? Our jewellery cases come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, colours, and styles so you can ensure you will find one for them to adore.
For fans of all things bee-eautiful
The introduction of spring sunshine combined with classic April showers mean that our buzzy little friends will begin making an appearance again soon! Bee lovers rejoice at this time of year when our pollinating pals begin to fly around the garden and add life to our plants. We love to celebrate one of the most influential creatures on earth, and our enchanting range of bee-themed accessories, homeware, and giftware provides the perfect way to champion these adorable insects. If you're looking for a unique gift a bumblebee lover will adore, our Ceramic Beehive Oil Burner is bound to be a hit. Fill this burner with a favourite fragrance oil or wax melt and light a candle beneath to release a fresh scent in the home. The sweet bee sitting on top of the hive-shaped burner is the perfect way to bring a touch of the spring outdoors to your cosy home. If you're looking for a bee-themed gift that makes a difference, our 'Help Save The Bees' Bee Tote Bag is the perfect stylish present, and with every tote bag purchased, we will donate £1 to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, supporting habitats for bees in Norfolk!
For the hard-to-buy-for
Still struggling to choose the perfect present for the person who has everything? You simply can't go wrong with a thoughtful token gift. We have a wealth of wonderful options for easy gifting that will please both the recipient and your pocket. Our charm bookmarks make adorable accessories with a practical spin, and avid readers can ensure they never lose their place as they flick through their favourite fiction.

If you'd love to get them a little of everything but feel far too spoilt for choice, why not give a glorious gift hamper a go? We have so many must-have hampers packed full of stunning pieces for them to taste and treasure. We also offer you the chance to build your own gift hamper, so you can choose everything from the box to all its fillings, making a gift that best suits your recipient.

Our With Love From Norfolk Gift Hamper makes a super special gift for lovers of our fine home county, and if they're far away from the East coast of the country, it provides them the opportunity to reminisce on everything to love about this wonderful place.
