We’ve got our hands full with crafts, camps and short vacays this March, but it hasn’t stopped us from looking forward to Easter and all the egg-citing traditions that go with it (sorry, we just had to!).
While bulk of the fun stuff happens on that day itself (April 1) the one tradition we can get a headstart on is shopping for Easter goodies! They come in all shapes, sizes and flavours, and that’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best places to grab your Easter treats.
Marks & Spencer
From lollies to quail eggs ($19.90, top image) and even a dino egg cup, Marks & Spencer has everything you need to stock up on all your Easter treats. They also have caramel-filled Dippy Egg ($35.90) for the kids, and a chic hand-painted Belgian Milk Chocolate Egg filled with mini Marc de Champagne truffles ($36.90) with your name on it! There’s even dairy-free hollow egg chocolate treats ($24.90)! Don’t forget the super-indulgent hot cross buns that come in a medley of flavours, including salted caramel and chocolate and bramley apple. At $10.90 for two, there’s no reason not to try them all!

We’ve got our eye on the Beaded Egg ($93) – not only is it filled with sixteen tiny chocolate eggs, but the shiny, bejewelled egg-shaped box it comes in also doubles up as an Easter decoration or even a storage box for your knick knacks.
