Top 5 tips for a Stress Free Easter Holiday

Easter is a time for fun with family and friends. So we're here to make sure your Easter is stress free and goes off without a hitch. Get the prep work done so you can sit back and make some memories…

Tip 1. Get Eggcited.

Having lots of eggs in the house around Easter time is always a plus. But chocolate eggs aren’t the only eggs you’ll need this Easter. Whether you’re rolling, painting, frying, baking or all of the above you’ll feel prepared with a Tray of Chicken Eggs to keep you going. 

Our Tray of Chicken Eggs has 30 eggs (2.5 Dozen) for £5.50. These eggs are locally sourced from Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire making them as fresh as they come. Plus as part of our Easter Food range discount you'll receive 10% off this product until April 17th. 

Tip 2. Grazing Platters. 

Prepare a grazing board with all your family favourites. Think of this as an inside picnic platter. (Of course if you’re lucky enough for some beautiful Easter weather then outside picnic away! We’ll only be a little jealous up here in Aberdeenshire). 

Finger food is perfect for a grazing platter. We love filling our platters with crowd pleasers like our Mini Quiches made with cheese, ham and red onion marmalade, Mini Sausage Rolls filled with handmade cocktail sausages and to mix it up add in some of our famous Haggis Bon Bons

Why not top off this top notch grazing platter with some proper dips like Stokes Real Tomato Ketchup and for those who want to kick it up a notch look no further than Stokes Chipotle Ketchup for adding a smoky spicy punch to your grazing platter. 

Whether you’re having friends round for Easter drinks or the kids are home for the Easter holidays a grazing platter is the perfect way to kick off your stress free Easter. And to help you out even more we have 10% off all the products recommended here in our Easter range. Browse the full Easter Food range here

Tip 3. Plan Activities. 

Roll up your sleeves, flour the table and get baking! 

Easter baking doesn't have to be a hassle, with our Easter baking kits kids and adults alike can have a stress free baking experience. No searching for flour in the back of the cupboard, no measuring sugar and even less washing up! Col’s Baking Kits make Easter baking as stress free as it gets.

Tip 4. Get Out And About.

Easter hunts are a classic Easter tradition and a sure way to have a great day out with the family. 

Whether you’re local to Ellon or looking for an Easter day away, the Ellon Easter Word/Phrase Hunt is the  perfect day out with the kids. While you collect the Easter words and phrases around Ellon, check out some of the local shops like our supplier Hey Sweetie and then head over to The Gaff to pick up a hot pizza. And of course round off the day with a trip to our ‘bricks and mortar’ shop Aberdeenshire Larder to stock up on your Easter feast essentials. Good luck piecing the Easter Puzzle together!
