Easter has definitely become my favourite holiday , we really do reflect on the meaning and celebration of Easter more so than Christmas in my opinion.Theres no rush to buy gifts ,there’s no pressure to tick off lists – there is just this sense of calm and togetherness…..well at least thats the case in my family.
We go to church the morning of Good Friday return home and have a late family lunch.We do glow in the dark Easter Egg Hunts (this has now turned into a tradition with loads of giggles and adults joining in on the fun – last year my brother-in-law thought it a hoot to bury them to make it more difficult for the kids.One egg is still missing lol). Sunday morning we go to mass, we meet have a big Easter Lunch and the kids get treats.
Now let me tell you about these treats! Before I had kids I had already , shall I call it petitioned for the move to small gifts instead of chocolates to be made (wink-wink, nudge-nudge) its finally happened and we usually get the kids a very small chocolate along with a book or dvd or even an item of clothing.
I’ve put together a few of the items I’ve bought , have a look below:

Top Row: Possibly the best buy ever…our Woolies Glow in the Dark Eggs , for older kids this DVD is just beautiful , we usually watch this during the Easter Break , my favourite find this year is pereft for mom’s , your bff or work collegue or even a teen – I came across these at Foschini
2nd Row: The perfect top of any little girl to wear over Easter , I love this little bunny ring holder from Umbra , this is another fun one from Woolworths; their Egg Decorating Kit is so a wonderful afternoon of fun (be sure to buy real white eggs at PNP).
3rd Row: The arts and crafts kits from Clicks are awesome , we love #veggietales and this DVD gets watched even when its not Easter . Egg and Spoon will keep the kids busy and its loads of fun.
Last Row: My fab find this morning comes from Chefs and Icers in Sandton, how sweet is this little Bunny Egg dish? Lastly by far the sweetest and cutest Easter item on my list is the Baby-X Easter outfit – one of the teachers just had a baby and we got baby an Easter Outfit .
