Alternative Easter Gifts for Men and Women

Easter is the time of year when you might, traditionally at least, buy a chocolate egg for your partner, friends and family. However, chocolate isn’t always the best present - particularly for someone who's trying to get fit!

Instead of giving them the sweet stuff, how about an alternative Easter gift in the form of a beautiful piece of jewellery or a keepsake that will help them to remember you when they’re at work, at the checkout or going away?

At Ernest Jones we stock a vast array of gifts for any occasion and Easter is no exception. Just because it’s not their birthday and it isn’t Christmas, that doesn’t mean that you can’t buy a special person a special present.

Alternative Easter gifts for women

The Emporio Armani rose gold tone bracelet and earring set is a truly beautiful gift that any woman would be thrilled to receive, especially as it’s made by Armani - a guarantee of style and quality - and finished in rose gold, arguably the most popular style of 2016 so far.

The brown leather and rose gold bracelet is beautifully styled for the contrasting effect, finished with the brand logo, while the stud earrings are also styled with the brand logo and finished with a number of glistening stones for that magnificent sparkle, allowing her to blend style and sophistication into any outfit - whether she's preparing for a day at work, a night out or a day at home with the family.

If a rose gold bracelet and earrings set isn’t the kind of thing you’re thinking of for an Easter present, then you could always opt for one of our Wedgwood Vera Wang Love Knots covered candles instead.

This simple but elegantly designed candle holder is from the iconic fashion designer’s collaboration with Wedgwood and is finished with a polished sterling silver base giving it the kind of style that would fit effortlessly into any home décor whether it’s in the living room or the bedroom. It features a removable silver lid and is finished with a delicate silver bow for that minimalist but sophisticated take on a timeless classic home accessory.

A final suggestion, if she's a keen writer – or if she simply needs to use a pen and paper for work – is one of our finest gifts for women.

Cross Century Pen and Pencil Gift Set

The Cross Century Pen and Pencil gift set includes a matching pen and mechanical pencil that are styled in beautiful chrome and gold for a highly professional look. Cross pens are one of the most popular brands for luxury stationary, and this set in particular will truly make your loved one feel like she’s writing in style, whether it’s a simple telephone message or an important file.

Alternative Easter gifts for men

When it comes to buying Easter gifts for men we have a comprehensive range of products that are likely to put a huge smile on his face. One particular favourite is this Ted Baker Antonys black bi-fold leather wallet.
