Easter Shopping: Bunnies and Chocolate and Chicks, Oh My!

For those of you who don't plan on stuffing your face with chocolate eggs this Easter Bank Holiday weekend (truly the worst time of year after Christmas to be on a diet), here's a bunch of non-fattening, fun suggestions for Easter gifts to indulge in - and a few sweet treats too.

If you're after more of a visual feast, check out the Fabergé Egg, Easter pop-up salon at Harrods in London's Knightsbridge, which runs until 21 April. The accompanying exhibition includes the aristocratic Parisian jewellery house's famous Imperial Easter Eggs, creations for the Russian Imperial Court and a dazzling Apple Blossom Fabergé Egg from 1901, crafted from gold, diamonds and nephrite, displayed in the Fine Jewellery area - the first time such treasures have been seen in the UK and outside a museum setting. You can also visit the Egg Bar where contemporary egg pendants, including an exclusive Fabergé Spiral Tassel Pendant, are on sale and can be engraved (ps. engraving is free on weekends...).

Happy Easter, everyone!
