While online delivery services from supermarkets like Asda, Tesco, Sainbury’s and Ocado are particularly busy during this time, there are still other online stores who can deliver Easter eggs at the moment. So the Easter bunny can still make a visit this year!
So where can you buy Easter eggs online and which stores are doing Easter egg delivery?
Where to buy Easter eggs online
You can get two delicious Easter eggs for only £5 from Iceland at the moment. They’re stocked up on the classic brands like Cadbury’s, Nestle and Thorntons, with some giant and large eggs even available – like this Smarties one.
With free next day delivery to your door when you spend over £35 online, these easter eggs are sure to arrive before Easter Sunday.
If you’re looking for good quality, delicious Easter eggs for good prices then Thorntons is the site for you. Their chocolate is legendary for it’s creamy taste and variety of flavours.
You can buy a small milk chocolate egg online from £4. Sent to either yourself or a loved one, it’s the perfect gift for the Easter holiday.
On their website, they’re still offering delivery before Easter Sunday.
3. John Lewis
John Lewis’ Easter chocolates come in all shapes and sizes, from bunnies to speckled eggs. In stock and ready to order, they have brands like Hotel Chocolat and Natalie. High quality chocolate, straight to your front door!
Order your Easter egg before 4pm for next day delivery from John Lewis.
The ever-reliable online market place, Amazon is the perfect place to shop for Easter eggs online. Although their deliveries might take slightly longer at the moment as they are prioritising essential items (which unfortunately, doesn’t include chocolate!).
We recommend this winning trio of Cadbury Easter eggs. They’re perfect for family sharing, with three different types – Dairy Milk, Mini Egg and Crème egg – or for a garden Easter egg hunt.
Unfortunately due to the high demand being faced by Amazon, you’re currently unlikely to get your Easter eggs before the weekend. However, they’re due to arrive a week after you order – so if you’re looking for a post-Easter treat, then order now!
5. Fortnum & Mason
While much of their stock is selling out fast because of the huge seasonal reductions on their site at the moment, you can still nab yourself a top quality easter egg from Fortnum & Mason in time for the weekend.
This praline scotch egg is a particular favourite, but the site has plenty of unique egg shapes and alternatives, so there’s bound to be something for everyone.
Next day delivery is unavailable from Fortnum & Mason due to the pandemic, however Named Day and Standard Delivery (five working days) is still available.
The iconic Yorkshire tea rooms have always sold their Easter treats online, but this year’s collection is looking particularly indulgent. Alongside the traditional selection of decadent eggs, many of their eggs are made flat so they’re easy to post.
Like this dark chocolate flat egg, made from dark Swiss chocolate and truly one of a kind.
Betty’s are no longer taking Easter deliveries but will be restocking and delivering after April 20. As they say, “The world is so topsy turvy at the moment that eating Easter eggs for the whole of April feels entirely acceptable.”
If you can’t go to the chocolate, get the chocolate to come to you. Cadbury’s themselves are selling Easter eggs online and delivering directly to your door.
Along with all the classics, you can also get this Turkish Delight Easter egg – a delicious reinvention of the iconic sweet shop treat.
A brand known exclusively for their uniquely delicious chocolate is bound to incredibly busy. So Cadbury’s aren’t taking any new orders today and you’ll likely have to wait in a ten minute queue to access the site at the moment, but after that those Easter eggs are yours! (Just not before Easter, unfortunately).
8. Hotel Chocolat
While Hotel Chocolat may bring in new and incredibly exciting Easter eggs every year, their motto remains the same – More cacao, Less sugar. So their chocolate tastes amazing and satisfies with less, and is more considerate of those who grow the cacao that goes into the chocolate.
This year, they’ve really outdone themselves! We love this Ostrich Easter Egg and the Big City Bunny, especially as it comes with an accompanying H-box of creamy chocolates. They’ve also got a variety of tasty vegan and free-from eggs, so whatever your diet, you can enjoy chocolate this Easter.
Having seen unprecedented demand for delivery, Hotel Chocolat have taken the decision to remove their Next Day and Nominated Day deliveries. So you can still order your Easter eggs, however they’ll take between three to five days to arrive at the moment.
Montezuma’s are spoiling us really with a 50 per cent discount on all of their Easter eggs and free standard delivery when you spend over £20. So this adorable milk chocolate “Charlie chick” filled with famous Montezuma’s chocolate buttons is now just £3.
Montezuma’s is no longer able to deliver in time for Easter.
ebay really does have everything! Even easter eggs. In fact, ebay have a fantastic selection of Easter eggs, all available to order straight to your fridge.
Most are also available to bulk-buy so you won’t have to worry about running out any time soon. Plus, you can plan the best Easter egg treasure hunt EVER!
With standard delivery, you might just get your Easter eggs from ebay in time for the weekend if you order today. Otherwise they will arrive a couple of days afterwards as much like Amazon, ebay is giving priority to essential items which sadly, doesn’t include scrumptious Easter eggs.
Is it really Easter without a Lindt bunny? Luckily you can order a chocolate Lindt bunny as well as the entire Lindt Easter range online through the Lindt website. There is a £20 minimum order, but we find that’s surprisingly easy to reach when it comes to chocolate!
There are also lots of reductions to be had when you buy multiple of the same item on the Lindt website. Ideal if you have an even number if children! You can buy two 200g Lindt bunnies for £8.00 or two 100g bunnies for £5.00.
Due to unprecedented demand, delivery times are currently seven working days so you won’t receive your Easter egg in time for the weekend.
12. Holland & Barrett
Holland & Barrett have a great selection of Easter eggs and as always, we can rely on them to offer chocolate for those with special dietary needs.
With plenty of vegan Easter eggs particularly, there’s so much choice on the website. This Cocoa Libre Raspberry Mini Slab is a real treat, under £3, totally vegan and small enough to fit through your letterbox!
Due to high demand, Holland & Barratt deliveries are taking between 11 to 15 working days. However, they are offering 15% off everything using the code WELCOME15.
One of our favourite chocolate brands Tony’s has added two special Easter products to the range. Both Tony’s Great Big Easter Eggs and Lemon Meringue bar are available online from the Selfridges website.
While Selfridges have temporarily closed the four physical stores, their website is still up and running. Selfridges, who have recently revamped the food hall in their flagship London shop to contain a massive sweet emporium, have a vast selection of Easter treats available to order from their website. You can even buy the classics, like Cadbury eggs. They are also offering free standard delivery.
The last order date to get Easter eggs before Sunday from Selfridges has now passed, but you can get free standard delivery using the code FREEDEL.
