ifting extravagant chocolate eggs is all well and good come Easter Sunday but, let's be honest, any excuse to treat them to something a little more memorable is a good one right now. From fine jewellery and great style finds for the adults to chic toys for kids and colourful accessories to brighten up any home, read on for our guide to the best luxury gifts for Easter 2022 – all rendered in cheerful pastel hues guaranteed to put a smile on their face.
The best Easter gifts for her
Pretty pastels are a spring staple and, when it comes to Easter gifting, there are plenty to choose from. Rixo's floral print cotton dress is the kind of universally-flattering piece she’ll wear week-in-week-out until autumn (and it pairs brilliantly with Gucci’s oversized sunglasses and Aspinal’s elegant mint green Mayfair bag). Pushing the boat out? These fine jewels from Sandy Leong x Gemfields and Chopard are some of the best of the new season.
The best Easter gifts for him
While we’re strong advocates for colour on men (Sunspel's sunshine-hued sweatshirt is flattering on almost every skin tone), we know many prefer to save their brights for accessories only. Piaget’s Polo Automatic watch, with its teal dial, is a great alternative to more traditional navy and black designs, while Urban Ears’ matching earbuds set themselves apart from the crowd. Buying for someone who really shuns spring shades? You can’t go wrong with a bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs or Mr P’s sustainable sneakers made from Vegea, a grape-skin ‘leather’.
The best Easter gifts for kids
No parent needs telling twice that allowing kids access to endless chocolate Easter eggs can end in disaster. For Easter 2021, stylish wooden toys make a great alternative and no child is going to feel snubbed should they receive Janod’s balance bike or Kiko + GG’s instruments. Parents, meanwhile, will love Meri Meri’s adorable bunny bonnet for newborns and Stella McCartney’s seasonal cardigan – both suitable for boys and girls – while, if you really can’t resist offering up something sweet, Bicuiteer’s letterbox-friendly iced biscuit is a chocolate alternative that’s as pretty as a picture.
The best Easter gifts for the home
Spring is the perfect time to introduce some colour into your (or a lucky recipient’s) home but you needn't invest in a major design overhaul; a few well-chosen accessories can do the job just as well. Oka’s romantic table lamp and Normann Copenhagen’s centrepiece of a vase will lift any table, while a traditional Easter wreath by Your London Florist is ideal for dipping a toe into interior colours temporarily. Alternatively, we can think of few chicer ways to wile away Easter Sunday than sipping wine from Emporio Sirenuse's Murano glass tumblers over a game of backgammon. Alexandra Llewellyn’s marquetry boards set the bar.
