5 Essential Easter collection, £35, from hotelchocolat.co.uk
An adventure of chocolate goodies bagged, tagged and tied, so this is one present that’s ready to give. And there’s more than enough to share – with an Easter egg and slab, plus an irresistible selection of filled mini eggs, hollow eggs for Easter hunts and more.
6 Cheeky Charlie Chimp, £6.49, from Thorntons.
If you’re looking for something that’s not egg-shaped, try Thorntons for its range of chocolate models. Charlie the Chimp’s pretty cute and carries a banana. But there’s handbags and Champagne bottles for older chocolate lovers.

Give the creative person in your life a gift they are sure to enjoy. This kit includes materials you’ll need to make some very cute wool pom pom chicks.
8 Haribo Easter ‘egg’, £4, from Sainsbury’s.
This egg-shaped mould is filled with some classic Haribo sweets so if you know someone who isn’t keen on chocolate – or a child likely to be over-run with traditional eggs – this could be the solution.
9 Lil’ Wabbit dressing up costume, £20.99, from woolworths.co.uk
Dress your little one up like the Easter bunny this year – complete with big floppy ears and soft carrot. The pictures will be priceless, especially when they’re 16 and introducing you to their new boyfriend or girlfriend.
10 Soap and Glory Feel The Knead, £3.41, from Boots.
There’s lots of chocolate-themed beauty products out there to choose from but this one from cult brand Soap and Glory is one of the best.
Mint, thyme, chocolate, vanilla and musk combine to create a heavenly smell. The product also contains exfoliating bamboo beads and seaweed suds so it’s perfect for massaging cellulite.
