[unpaid/ad/sample] In our family, despite being not at all religious, we’ve always made a thing of Easter – I think it was my grandparents that really loved it but for them it wasn’t about chocolate and eggs, it was about the most random gifts like a pretty pair of pants or some crayons. I think we always had a simnel cake with the marzipan eggs round the sides but really it was an excuse to cook a roast and exchange small gifts. We would get literally one chocolate egg (apart from me who got two because I had a godmother who always bought the most fancy, icing flower covered affairs in dark chocolate that looked delicious but tasted too bitter for a 6 year old) and be thrilled with that. So, although far more chocolate later appeared with our own children (egg hunts and so on) we’re now at the stage when we are back to the small gift thing instead. This is a very long winded way to say I’ve found the perfect thing!

Even if you’re not an Easter gifter, I can’t think of any nicer cheer-up present for yourself or anyone else. There are five print options available (my favourite is easily daffodil) and you can opt for a vegan balm formulation.

The compacts are refillable so unless you fancy various options, the exterior is a one-time purchase. The balms themselves are a shea, meadowfoam and coconut blend poured in small batches (they contain beeswax unless you opt for the vegan version) and despite being billed as lip balm, they’re really every-where balms.

At £15 each (available in tints of red or pink if you want to stick with it as a lip balm) I think that’s a lot of happiness right there in these little pots. You can find them HERE.
