This time of the year seems to hold the most promise of good things to come: from days that are lengthening and weather that is brightening to lambs and spring flowers that are bursting forth.
The Easter break is a great time to stop and celebrate this fab time of year with friends and family. In Wainwright’s Yard you will find plenty of ways to do this with food, fashion and Easter goodies for baskets, hunts and decorative touches.
Let’s start with a traditional Easter egg hunt, inside or out, depending on the weather. Lay a trail of foil eggs, Booths have plenty, hidden in clever places like coat pockets, bookshelves, window ledges or under and around plant pots.
You could even turn it into a learning or mindfulness game with a challenge to find a rainbow of colours. The reward could be the biggest Easter egg ever or, our personal favourite imported from America – the Easter box or basket.
This is the best excuse ever to present your nearest and dearest, of any age, with a lucky dip of small gifts. For a baby’s first Easter, it could be teething toys, the softest rabbit – like these from Armstrong Ward – or a picture book.
For a toddler, there are some delightful little egg cups at La Maison – also good for a snack-sized handful of raisins.
For boys and girls, a basket of art supplies, windup toys, and a lovely chocolate egg like this from Armstrong Ward, will always be very well received.
For the teenager, who will also love to find a chocolate fix, your basket could include a bamboo face cloth or other beauty treats in stock at Armstrong Ward.
And don’t forget the adults – pop in some snazzy socks or a scarf to effortlessly elevate an outfit. There’s a great selection at Maya Maya.
So get your Easter weekend sorted and hop into Wainwright’s Yard with your shopping list.
