Easter Chick!

Who can believe that Easter is only a week away now! Where has the year gone? Hopefully you are all organised for the Easter Bunny's pending visit this Saturday night. I seem to be on top of it this year which is surprising given past holidays where I have scrambled around at the last minute trying to buy gifts and decorate the house in a sheer panic.

If you have left it to the last minute though and are not keen on picking up the same old commercial rubbish the supermarket stocks each year (which not only costs the earth but just means nothing) then perhaps try putting your own personal and creative touch on these little gifts as I've done. They are perfect for work colleagues or to keep tucked away at home for those visitors that pop in over the Easter long weekend with an unexpected egg or two! 

Now these were as simple as quick trip to Spotlight to pick up some small coloured noodle boxes (you can get them as big and make them as generous as you like really), some raffia to go inside, a bit of ribbon and some adorable little fluffy chicks to stick on top! Craft shops seem to have an array of DIY Easter decorations for gifts at the moment so you really can be as creative as you like. Just crack out your hot glue gun and get gluing!

Now purchasing small solid eggs in bulk seems to be the most economical way of filling your noodle boxes, but you could really fill them with whatever chocolates or eggs you like. But be warned with so many eggs on hand you may be tempted (as I was) to play the 'one for me, one for the noodle box' game if you know what I mean! And lets just say I've had my fair share of Easter eggs already and it's not even Easter yet! Thank goodness it's only once a year!

So yet again I have ruined the surprise of what my friends will receive this year (sorry girls!), but at least they'll all know their gifts were created with a bit of love and thought:)

Have a safe and Happy Easter x
