A miniature gift idea for Easter

Question. What do you buy as an Easter gift for a loved one who just happens to hate every kind of chocolate?

Answer. A gift from Just Miniatures of course. Because whilst the person in question doesn’t indulge in chocolate, there’s every chance that they enjoy a sneaky tipple, and Just Miniatures provides all the big brands in alcoholic beverages, but in a smaller form.

Just Miniatures is the UK’s No1 specialist in miniature alcoholic drinks. They stoke a range of gift ideas including Port tasting collections, cocktail tasting gift boxes and different types of whiskey beautifully packaged in a range of boxes and tins.

I was recently sent a lovely gift from Just Miniatures that combined a number of my favourite drinks stored in a very cute mini wicker picnic basket. The basket contained Baileys, Bombay Sapphire gin, Disaronno Amaretto, Smirnoff Vodka, Jagermeister (am I the only person in the world who had never tried this?) and the classic, and totally delicious Jack Daniels. Most of the drinks were in glass versions of the bottle, and were stored carefully in the rather lovely basket. I frankly don’t know anyone who loves a drink who wouldn’t be pleased to receive this as a gift, if not for Easter, then as a birthday present, thank you gift, even a gift to thank someone for being your best man or usher at a wedding.

Easter presents for those avoiding chocolate

It is less than 2 weeks to Easter, and for most people that means an excuse to indulge in chocolate. But what about presents for those who are avoiding the dark and yummy stuff. After all, contrary to widely held believe, not everyone has a sweet tooth. And then there are those who are dieting, or don’t eat it for health reasons, or those who just get far too many eggs and so look for something different. What do you buy for them?

This year I am faced with a heavily pregnant sister who now has an aversion to chocolate. I would usually opt to buy clothing, but again, with a rather large baby bump, this is not really the best of ideas. So instead I have chosen this very nice white bracelet watch from Oasis, which is plastic and therefore wipe clean, perfect for a new mom who will soon be experiencing the joys of baby puke! Oasis currently have a gorgeous range of watches that I discovered when looking for an oasis discount code, and I think these are a great gift choice for not much more than a fancy egg.

My little boy, who is 4, has so many Easter Eggs from so many people, that I always avoid buying him more chocolate.  Instead, a trip to the Early Learning Centre is a must. With Spring now almost official, I am thinking of getting the Sizzling barbecue to put outside his playhouse – he loves to pretend to cook and I think this would definitely get the seal of approval.

And then there is me! If I’m honest, I’m not such a fan of chocolate has I used to be, and would much prefer something pretty in place of the traditional egg. I have my eye on quite a few things from Evans at the moment, so, here, as a gentle reminder to my hubby, are a few things I would love this Easter.
