Sophisticated Easter gifts for adults

21 Mar 2022


Looking for an Easter gift that exudes elegance and sophistication? Here are a few ideas…

For many of us, Easter means nostalgic memories of egg and spoon races at school, crafting Easter bonnets, and excitedly receiving brightly-wrapped chocolate eggs from family members. We’re not ones to judge the adults who prefer their Easter treats with a bit of whimsy. Our Sunny Side Up chocolates certainly aren’t for children only! But it’s not everyone’s cup of hot chocolate. For those who prefer a touch of elegance, these sophisticated Easter gifts for adults are sure to delight.

Easter gifts for adults

Whether you’re looking for something to treat them with after the Easter egg hunt with the kids or just want to share in the festivities in a stylish way, these gifts are ideal for parents, partners, friends, and older children who might feel like they’ve outgrown the mini eggs.

Sophisticated Easter eggs

Eggs have long been an important symbol of Easter, representing Spring, fertility, and new life. Chocolate eggs are enjoyed by the millions every year and have become a staple of Easter celebrations.

As such an integral part of Easter, we think that our chocolate Easter eggs are the perfect gifts that are both traditional and refined. Head over to the dark side with the Dark Chocolate Easter Egg, or why not add an extra touch of class with the decadent Champagne Easter Egg? Made of thick chocolate and packed with our favourite selectors (including a couple of tipsy truffles here or there), we think these treats are the ideal Easter gifts for adults.

High-quality alcohol

Speaking of champagne, nothing says celebration quite like a cheeky bit of booze. Celebrate new life and the end of the cold winter months with our luxury alcohol collection. Give your loved one the chance to wind down with a glass of refreshing Cacao Gin. Or crack open a bottle of bubbly with our Classic Prosecco for dinner or at your Easter party. We’re particularly proud of our Velvetised Chocolate Cream, which makes the most of the Velvetiser’s technology to create our smoothest alcohol yet. We hope your loved one will enjoy it just as much as we do!

Beauty and pampering

Easter gifts for adults don’t need to be restricted to edible goodies. The chilly winter air can be harsh on the skin, which means there’s no better gift than a bit of pampering to help you jump into spring. From nourishing body butters and gently exfoliating scrubs to candles that set just the right kind of mood, a good bit of pampering can go a long way.

Our beauty product collection is bursting with natural ingredients and aromas, which couldn’t be a better fit for a celebration of the beauty of life and new growth. Making your loved one look (and feel) luxurious makes for a gift they won’t easily forget.

Bean to Bar experience

Physical items like chocolate and alcohol are often the first things that come to mind when we think of gifts. But how about an experience instead? Meant for real chocolate lovers, our Bean to Bar experiences in London and Leeds take you through all the steps to make our signature chocolate, right from the humble cacao beans to the bars you see on the shelves.

The best part of an experience is that it’s something you can enjoy together. Whether it’s a romantic date or a fun day out with your best friends, it’s the experiences together that are sure to stick with you. And with a minimum age of 18 and a complimentary glass of prosecco, this is one where you’ll want to leave the kids at home.

Easter chocolates

We’re big fans of the extra thick Easter eggs, but some people might prefer something more petite to nibble on. In that case, the Easter Sleekster retains all the Easter charm of opulent chocolate eggs but adds some variety.

For something a little bit smaller, our iconic H-Box comes in an Easter edition with all the same favourite flavours, from the rich and refined dark chocolate to the sweet and dainty strawberries and cream. There’s a little treat for everyone in these collections

Hot chocolate

It may be starting to get warmer, but we all know how unpredictable springtime weather can be. Cool spring nights are the perfect time to chill out on the sofa with a warming cup of hot chocolate and relax after the Easter activities. With grated flakes of our high-cacao chocolate melting into a smooth and luxurious drink, this is no ordinary powder hot chocolate. You can never go wrong with the gift of liquid indulgence.

And if you have one, you can pair our hot chocolate sachets with the Velvetiser for smooth, barista-grade hot chocolate all year round.

Easter hampers

Any of those gifts are bound to bring a smile to the recipient’s face. But we’ve been saving the best until last. If you find yourself unable to choose just one gift, why not go the extra mile with a whole hamper? An Easter hamper is a great way to tie it all together. Do you know their favourite flavours? Choosing something they really love is a great way to show that you know them well.

We may consider chocolate the star of the show, but there are plenty of other treats you could add. Alcohol is almost always a great choice for a hamper, and we think it pairs wonderfully with chocolate when you need a little me-time.

You can keep on theme by stuffing an Easter basket full of goodies or choose one we made earlier. Why not take a look at the Everything Chocolate Gift Hamper Collection or the All Things Easter Hamper? Filled with all our favourites, we’ve put these collections together to take the pressure off of choosing the right gift.

Make Easter extra special

And there you have it: delightful Easter gifts for adults. As much as we love a good Easter egg hunt, it wouldn’t be as fun without the promise of winding down at the end of the day with some quality chocolate, a glass of bubbly, and a relaxing bath. And we think that’s the greatest gift you can give this Easter.
