Easter may not be as celebratory as Christmas or as flashy as Valentine’s Day, but with its bright colours, fun & unique traditions (where else is it ok for adults to hide and hunt for coloured eggs?) and overall spring vibes, it’s one of our underrated favourites! Not to mention that the Easter feast is a thing - tables filled with glazed hams, crispy green spring vegetables, roasted carrots, and fresh baked rolls. And can we talk about those Easter desserts? We’re passing on cheap, foil-wrapped chocolate eggs thankyouverymuch and heading straight to the tangy lemon tarts, sweet rhubarb pie and bunny themed cookies & cakes. The best part about Easter baking is that these little labours of baking love easily lend themselves into the perfect Easter gift ideas for friends & family. So whether you’re tackling this year’s Easter baking single handedly or you’re happy to leave the baking to us experts, we’ve got a list of Easter baking gift ideas that will add a sweet little flair to all your Easter celebrations.

Cute bunny shaped cakes have one time to shine and that’s Easter! Don’t pass up the opportunity to pay tribute to everyone’s favourite furry gift giver with this cute Hippity Hop Bunny Cake.

It’s not Easter without some bright & colorful Easter eggs. Sure, you could go the classic route of boiling and dying actual eggs, but we’re putting in our vote for these delicious Easter Egg Oreo Truffles instead. These simple, no-bake truffles can be made in a few short hours and you can let the kids do all the decorating - a win-win! Delight your guests and tie in the Easter basket theme by serving them on a nest of shredded coloured paper.
