Brands have been switching up the traditional seasonal celebrations by crafting eggs in weird and wonderful ways without a cocoa bean in sight.
In particular, gift sets jam-packed with the latest and most sought-after beauty favourites as well as those with sex toys to give an adult twist to your long weekend.
From Glossybox andL’Occitane, to Coco de Mer, see the unconventional Easter eggs you need on your radar.
L’Occitane Easter Egg
Housed in a brightly coloured, reusable aluminium case, the French skincare label is offering its hero products for a sweet-free treat this Easter. Tucked within the beautifully-adorned exterior, you’ll find a selection of minis like the brand’s Almond Shower Oil and Shea Butter Hand Cream.
Glossybox Beauty Easter Egg
Make this Easter the best one yet with the help of beauty subscription service Glossybox and its limited-edition seasonal offering. It contains a mix of skincare from Oh K!, Hawaiian Tropic, St Tropez, Carmex, Nars, Christophe Robin, Wander Beauty, Laura Mercier, and fragrance brand Juliette has a Gun. It officially launches on March 26 but don’t dawdle: it sold out in just five minutes last year. There are also 50 special eggs with Golden Tickets treating 50 lucky winners to a prize from Pandora worth £100 as well as a £50 spend at lookfantastic.
lookfantastic Beauty Egg

Coco de Mer Love Eggs
Strictly for adults, this is a very different kind of egg for the season. There’s been a sex toy revolution over lockdown and the experts at Coco de Mer have been on the pulse with a range of love eggs. Designed to train muscles, while giving pleasure at the same time, there’s a few available for every level, from beginner to expert. See the Lelo Lyla 2, a vibrating egg with a remote control or the Hula Beads vibrator. There’s also the pelvic floor trainer Elvie with a smart app that you can connect to in order to track your kegel progress.

Get ready to pamper yourself with the help of Dove’s limited-edition Easter egg offering that’s filled to the brim with skin-boosting products for an indulgent self-care session this season. It includes the brand’s Shea Butter-enriched hand cream that is ideal for over-sanitised chapped skin and the moisturising body wash.
Rituals Easter Egg Gift Set
This Easter bank holiday, take the break as a chance for much-needed me-time with the help of Rituals and its spa-worthy selection. Inside the Pepto-bismol pink exterior, you’ll find a foaming shower gel, hand balm and travel EDP from the Ritual of Sakura range, inspired by the iconic Japanese Cherry Blossom.
