Gåva ([gaw-vah] n gift)
The art of Scandi gifting
Thoughtful gifts that show you care
A Gåva ([gaw-vah] n gift) can be valuable without being expensive - as long as it’s chosen with care and beautifully presented.
Trust the Scandis to take everything back to design, hey? But it works. Even the simplest homemade treat feels like a luxury gift when it’s wrapped up beautifully. And that’s where the first product in the Gåva range comes in…
Easter Äggs by Gåva are the reusable Easter eggs you fill with what you like.
What is a Swedish Easter Ägg?
Just like Christmas stockings, elaborately painted Easter Äggs are brought out and refilled year after year.
In a typical Swedish household, every family member (including the dog!) has their own Ägg, in addition to communal Äggs dotted strategically around the house, close to comfortable chairs where someone might want to sit down and tuck into something sweet.
But Easter Äggs, unlike their British counterparts, aren’t all about chocolate. They’re designed to hold all sorts of surprises, from jewellery and makeup to baked treats and homemade chocolates - even holidays (if you’ve got a voucher).
As kids, our Påskäggs would usually be stuffed with our favorite rainbow pick ‘n’ mix or chocolate treats, but Swedish parents are getting more and more inventive with their Easter gifting.
Perhaps it’s a friend who needs a bit of TLC? Your brilliant team at work, who have carried each other through the uncertainty of the last couple of years? Or your partner, just to say Happy Easter?
We wanted to give you a grown-up filler for your Äggs this year. Swedish sweets and chocolates are delicious, but as sunset creeps past 8pm, is there any better way to celebrate the return of the long evenings than a sundown G&T?
