The Best Easter Gift Ideas
FEATURE: LONG READ
Words by EMILIE DOCK
Caution: do not read while hungry. The eggs in this basket are so supremely decadent, so delightfully irresistible, that even the Easter bunny found it hard to part with them. There’s a giant golden egg (chef-made) adorned with delicate chocolate peacock feathers, iridescent speckled eggs filled with indulgent hazelnut gianduja, white-chocolate creations bejewelled with salted nuts, and more.
Plus, for those who prefer non-chocolate Easter gifts (we’ll try not to judge), we’ve also gathered an editor’s pick of the finest non-edible treats – from Easter toys to keep little ones happy to egg-ceptional Easter gifts for adults.
Easter at The Harrods Chocolaterie
Trust our in-house chocolatiers to pull out all the stops come Easter. Standing proud in The Chocolate Hall is a one-of-a-kind peacock crafted entirely out of dark chocolate. Inspired by the historic tiles that decorate The Food Halls (can you spot the bird on your next visit?), it sets the theme for our chefs’ exquisite range of Easter ‘Peacock’ eggs – each painstakingly hand-made with our chocolate courvertures and the finest ingredients.
The Best Luxury Easter Eggs
Harrods Easter Showstopper Peacock Feather Egg
A masterpiece in chocolate form, our crowning Peacock egg – weighing in at 1.8kg and decorated with delicate caramelised-white-chocolate feathers – takes Easter to dizzying heights of decadence. Crack open the shimmering golden shell to reveal a thick layer of milk chocolate lined with our signature bread-and-butter praline. Beneath it, you’ll find a drawer filled with 16 glistening bonbons.
Harrods Vegan Hazelnut Gianduja Dark Chocolate Easter Egg
If the iridescent peacock-feather-inspired hues of this egg aren’t enough to tempt you, the ultra-indulgent dark-chocolate shell layered with bubbles of dreamy hazelnut gianduja (an extra-nutty Italian praline) – all vegan – should cinch the deal. For the sweeter of tooth, our chefs have also made a milk-chocolate version with creamy salted caramel.
Harrods Half-Dozen Filled Peacock Eggs
Nestled in a milk-chocolate tray (less plastic, more chocolate – a stroke of genius from the chefs) are six beautiful, speckled eggs made from either dark or milk chocolate, all filled to the brim with Ivy House sea-salted caramel, crunchy peanut butter praline or hazelnut gianduja. One for them, five for you, right?
Harrods Salted Caramel Truffle Easter Egg
We challenge you to find someone who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive this artisan egg with accompanying salted-caramel truffles. Fusing creamy Belgian milk chocolate with salted-caramel nuggets, it’s perfect for gifting… if you can bear to part with it, that is.
Venchi 1878 White Chocolate with Salted Nuts Gourmet Egg
Striking the perfect balance between both sweet and salty, and creamy and crunchy, this white-chocolate creation conceals a layer of whole Sicilian almonds, lightly salted pistachios and Piedmont hazelnuts. The pleasure of shattering the thick shell almost equals the pleasure of eating it.
Harrods Milk Chocolate Easter Egg
See their eyes light up when they spot this adorable rabbit across the garden. Ideal for mini egg hunters, this classic milk-chocolate egg surprises with a bag of carrot-shaped jelly sweets for nibbling as they continue their search.
