After our subdued Christmas celebrations in 2020, we were all hoping to spend some quality time with our family and friends over the Easter bank holiday weekend. However, the vaccine is still rolling out across the UK and it looks like we will be under lockdown restrictions for a while to come.
Even with this news, so many of us will be looking for extra special ways to show our family and friends that we care this Easter. If you are lucky enough to live with your family or friends, you might be planning an at-home celebration already. If you are not able to see everyone you love, you are probably looking for a way to make them feel special or come together virtually.
At home celebrations
An ideal solution for large families locked down together, a big Easter weekend celebration at home is perfect for lifting spirits and welcoming the return of (hopefully) warmer weather.
Perhaps it is mum’s roast dinner or a BBQ in the sun, but an Easter Sunday meal is a great way to celebrate with the people you live with. For those of you who have been working from home, why not organise a Good Friday party and enjoy the relief of a long weekend.
Sending personal gifts
Of course, sending Easter eggs to your family and friends is the perfect seasonal solution to make them feel special. Personalised Easter eggs adorned with their names or accompanied by their favourite snacks or drinks will add a touch more magic to their gift too.
Virtual Easter events
We are all a little tired of quizzes, but a virtual Easter event with your friends and family is a great way to share some special memories. Try a virtual cocktail making class, playing Pictionary online or playing parlour games over Zoom.
You could even try a virtual Easter egg or scavenger hunt and get the kids involved. Dial-in from your phones or tablets and let them scour the house for eggs, it’s almost as fun as being together.
Sharing Easter traditions
Why not share your Easter traditions with friends and family by mail and send them a personal postcard about them. You could even try a few of your loved one’s traditions and swap stories about how you enjoyed them or not.
How are you celebrating Easter this year?

We will be having an Easter Bunny breakfast which we usually have with family but this year we’ll have family joining in via Zoom. #KCACOLS
Lovely post. In theory we are going to Hobart. I am wishing I hadn’t booked the tickets. We shall see. We might be in lockdown by then – who knows? #KCACOLS
Gosh I haven’t even begun to think about Easter yet, but I love the idea of sending personalised Easter eggs – how fabulous! Definitely going to look into it, thanks! #KCACOLS
sending greetings in the mail is a wonderful idea. i love getting notes in the mail! hope we’ll be able to see people though. cheers #KCACOLS
Looking forward to Easter!

Some lovely ideas here Franca. Hoping that the weather improves so we can spend a bit more time out in the back garden by Easter. #KCACOLS

We always have an Easter treasure hunt in the house and garden which the kids love! #KCACOLS

We actually quite enjoyed having Easter in lockdown last year. We did an Easter egg hunt that involved finding answers to different clues around the house and garden. I’d be happy to do that again this year but if the roadmap allows we’d love to meet up at Grandma’s so the kids can do a hunt together.
I will have to start thinking about some personalised Easter gifts and I like the idea of a virtual event too #KCACOLS
I love the idea of a bbq for Easter, I am thinking about doing an Easter display in front of our house with some treats for the neighbours this year xx #KCACOLS
Easter is VEVO I g so much more of an event. Especially from being locked down. Great suggestions.
