My name is Claire and I am a chocoholic. Chocolate makes me happy. You can keep your cheese and your gin. Chocolate is my thing. After a lot of talks about chocolate with my cousin we have concurred that it must be in the genes. Therefore we are not responsible for our chocolate intake. My cousin once devised a Christmas quiz for her fellow radiographers by x-raying chocolate bars and seeing if they could identify the correct bars. That is dedication to the cause.
Of course every chocoholic loves Easter time, when it is perfectly acceptable to eat a chocolate egg for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So I am somewhat bemused to find myself writing an alternative Easter gift guide. But I happen to have married one of those strange breeds of people that can eat half a bar of chocolate and save the rest for later (although he has caught onto the fact that you can’t leave chocolate lying around to be eaten later when you live with a chocoholic). So rather than find myself questioning my life choices come December when I will be turfing out the Husbands out of date Easter eggs to make room for the Cadbury’s Heroes, I have decided to think outside the box and not buy him chocolate this year.
So here are some ideas for alternative Easter gifts for those that aren’t chocoholics.
1 The Gin Lover
The gin craze is something else that has passed me by. I don’t like it. However everyone else in the world seems to and there are some gorgeous gin themed gifts out there to suit every gin lover. This gift set comes with two hammered mugs, and straws, and you can personalise the gift box.
