Familiar tastes, smells and surroundings can be comforting and have the magical ability to transport you back to special moments in your life. With the highs and lows of the last two years, this Easter feels like a new beginning and a chance to once again enjoy and celebrate the traditions of the occasion with our family and friends. Traditionally, Easter is a celebration of community, renewal, and rebirth, with the Easter Bunny representing new hope. It is exactly where we find ourselves as we navigate through our new normal and begin to rebuild our lives. 

 

As we prepare for the Easter holidays, we draw our families and friends close and hold on to the hope and magic that this time of the year brings. With a special selection of food, homeware, gifting and fashion, Woolies and the bunnies of Hopville are here to help to make it easy for you to share the magic of Easter with your loved ones. 

 

This year, Hopville sees your favourite bunnies return to welcome you on their magical adventures of Easter. Keep the kids entertained and shop with the adorable bunnies of Hopville – the Easter “eggsperts”. 

 

You don’t have to hunt around for Easter inspiration and gifting ideas – here are our top picks.

 

FOOD:

 

Whatever your food and entertaining needs, Woolies has you covered. The pop of the toaster, wafts of cinnamon, butter melting Hot Cross Buns. Whether you like yours sweet, extra spicy, fruity, fruit-free or gluten-free – Woolies has a hot cross bun that’s perfect for you. 

 

Pickled fish is another Easter holiday classic. Enjoy delicious Cape Malay style Yellowtail or Hake pickled fish (500g) – all the delicious taste without the fuss. All of Woolies’ seafood is responsibly sourced from suppliers who are working towards achieving healthier oceans. If you plan to make the traditional roast lamb as your Easter crowd-pleaser, opt for the Easy to Cook range – making the perfect meltingly tender and delicious roast is easier than ever.

 

For little ones and the young-at-heart, the Easter egg hunt is the most important part of the holiday. The sweet Bunny Bag is perfect to hold all the chocolate treasures that await. The bag is made locally by Township Fleva, a social enterprise based in Orange Farm, Johannesburg that helps unemployed youth through training, education, and healthcare. 

 

For the Easter egg hunt itself, Woolies has a brightly wrapped selection of chocolate treats, all made with responsibly sourced cocoa – chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs in a range of sizes, chocolate marshies and more. Kids will love the Easter Treat House, which has two hen’s eggs, two marshies and 30g fantastical multi-coloured eggs. If you need more ideas to keep Easter magical and occupy the kids, get them decorating with the Egg Art Kit, which has special egg dyes and fun accessories. Keep their little hands busy with the Easter Biscuit Decorating Kit. It comes with bunny biscuits, icing sugar, sprinkles and a piping bag. 

 

A cute, cuddly, plush bunny is the ultimate Easter gift. Happy Bunny was made right here in South Africa and is a great way to support a local business this Easter. 

 

FASHION:

With Woolies’ adorable Easter themed children’s clothing, your kids will really get into the Easter spirit. For girls there’s the Bunny Party Dress With Sling Bag or Bunny Fleece Hood Dress. Or for boys, we have a couple of cool Easter-themed T-shirts. After a long day of Easter adventure, your little ones will be snug and cosy in our children’s Easter themed sleepwear – like the delightful Plush Bunny Ears and Tail PJ Set or the Bunny Toy Onesie. Woolies also has an enchanting selection of Easter-themed for babies, like the Bunny Tutu Sleepsuit and don’t forget to mark the occasion with a special My First Easter Bib.

 

HOMEWARE:

Serve up an Easter feast on our range of wood serving products like the Rectangular Wooden Platter or the Wood Two Tier Cake Stand. Crafted from Acasia wood which is a durable hardwood that is harvested in a sustainable manner.

 

If a braai is on the menu for you this Easter, make sure that you’re all set with the Braai Utensil 3 Piece Set or the Jan Braai Fork, an all-purpose braai accessory – perfect for flipping meat or for using as a carving or serving fork. Or for different braai entertaining experience, try the Table Top Braai, which is a portable charcoal braai that is battery powered.

 

For your gift packaging this year, opt for one of Woolies’ beautiful gift bags. Printed using environmentally friendly inks and made from responsibly sourced paper, these gift bags are also perfect for Easter egg hunts.
