Sometimes a large chocolate egg is not everybody's favourite gift at Easter. They may not have a sweet tooth, they may be watching their weight....so here is a pretty little alternative to the traditional Easter gift.
Take a charming little dish, I chose one that had a little bird on the side. Pop in a few bits of twig or a small handful of straw shaping it to look nest-like. Deceorate the twigs with colourful Spring blossoms or tiny flowers and a few fresh green leaves. Add a few chocolate mini eggs to complete.
Put your little gift on the table at breakfast time to surprise the recipient. It will be a gift that will last much longer than the few chocolates that it contains and if you wish to add a little more to it as I did because the dish I used was a soapdish, you can add a bar of fragrant handmade soap or two. Perfect!
