With a seemingly endless winter, and Christmas a long distant memory, we relish the Easter weekend for the respite it brings. Granted, last year saw us basking in the sunshine in our green and pleasant land, this year a snow shovel and robust umbrella are our best friends. Regardless of this, we long for a few days off and remain endlessly optimistic about the start of spring being just around the corner.
In preparation for a mass exodus this weekend, we invite you to consider the essentials for your Easter getaway. You may be jetting off to faraway shores or keeping it close to home, either way check out our edit of the perfect accessories to help you on your way. From travel guides to toiletries, and books to bags, The Conran Shop has your weekend wrapped up. Read on for some inspiration or check out our travel shop here.
With recent reports suggesting as many as 1.6 million people are due to flood through the gates of Gatwick this Easter*, it would seem that many have their sights set on a sunny escape. With the balmy temperatures of Barcelona in demand, The Conran Shop has compiled a few baggage basics for a sunny shore break.
If you are keeping closer to home this weekend then fear not, as we have a few ideas on what you need to pack to make your UK break a stylish affair. Whether it's glamping, a cottage hideaway or a B&B home-from-home, The Conran Shop is the place to stock up on the fundamental additions to your long weekend.
Of course with a blustery outlook on the cards, you may be looking to batten down the hatches at home. Rekindle your fondness for the recently hackneyed indoors and splash out on a new place to snuggle down and indulge in old films or a spot of reading. A little warm lighting will be certain to lift your spirits and make the gloomy weather a thing of the past.
Whatever your plans, we hope our edit has inspired you to make the most of the Easter weekend. For further shopping suggestions you can check out our travel shop online or join us for the launch of the new season in the Chelsea store this week. Customers are invited to join us on Wednesday 27th March to browse the new collections and sample a taste of the summer with innovative ice creams from Chin Chin Laboratorists. 5.30-8pm.
