The supermarket shelves seem to have been filled with Easter eggs since the festive season ended. By now, you might be wondering whether there is any escape from all these sugary treats.
In fact, there are plenty of alternative gifts available, suitable for friends and family of all ages.
We’ve gathered some of the finest egg-shaped gadgets on the market for those who want to celebrate the occasion without worrying about the calories.
Night Light - Pabobo Super Nomade - £35 from www.mamasandpapas.com
This portable illuminator has micro-USB charging and is a great gift for the kids. It will give them the power to wander around at night, and it can even tell when it is light or dark, meaning it turns on and off by itself. Powering 200 hours from a single charge, this is an ideal non-choccy treat for little ones.
Music Maker - Pure Sensia Portable DAB/FM/Internet Radio - £229.99 from www.go-electrical.co.uk
A simply stunning sphere with hues inspired by the insides of an egg, this is the ultimate alternative Easter gift for a geek. This clever device plays both DAB and internet radio so you can have all the weird and wonderful channels you want, plus you can stream wirelessly from your tablet or smartphone to release those tunes. It’s a truly cracking package.
Worn Out - Creme Egg Charm Bracelet - £16.99 from www.shmoobamboo.com
With five mini chocolate egg charms adorning this piece of wrist candy, it could well be the most attractive kidult piece of jewellery around. But it has some pretty stiff competition, as the ShmooBamboo website is full of other non-edible treats to drool over.
Stress Relief - Heated Egg Massager - £2.99 from www.firebox.com
Once purchased, this portable battery powered massager will accompany you everywhere - it’s an absolute must-have when you’re on the move. Simply flick the switch and relax, as those aches and pains simply melt away. Now, where is that buy button?
Play Time - Playmobil Easter Eggs - £7.21 from www.amazon.co.uk
Just in time for Easter comes this entire range of different eggs from Playmobil. With top quality playthings inside, suitable for boys, girls and grown-ups too, these ostrich-sized eggs will appeal to all and will last much longer than a traditional chocolate gift.
Game On - Star Wars Angry Death Star - £25 from www.amazon.co.uk
Bring your app-based play to life with one of these super sets from Hasbro. Set up the game and fling your Angry Birds across your own space, knocking down structures as you go. Before you know it, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear as you rack up the points.
