In the Greek Orthodox calendar, Easter is the most important and sacred time of year. It’s a time to get together with our families, forget about work and eat huge amounts of delicious, traditional Easter food. Though it may not be possible this year to be with your loved ones in person, why not show someone you care with some of these sustainable Greek gifts for Easter? Or better yet, treat yourself at this special time of year – because you deserve it.
Dr. Kavvadia Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fill your home and kitchen with the scent of the Mediterranean this Easter with Dr. Kavvadia Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Dr. Kavvadia is made sustainably on a family-run farm in Corfu; using a traditional family method that has been passed down through generations. Not only is this oil vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and extremely tasty, but it also has numerous health benefits. Each bottle is packed with very high levels of polyphenols, which are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
You can choose from two varieties, both of which have their own distinct flavour. While the Lianolia variety comes from olive trees predominantly found on Corfu, the Thiako variety is sourced from the islands of Cephalonia and Ithaca.
CHOE Nefeli Archaic Soy Candle
Cleanse your home this Easter with the refreshing, luxurious scent of CHOE’s Nefeli Archaic Soy Candle., inspired by Ancient Greek artwork. You can choose from two scents: olive leaf and lime or wild fig and amber.
All of CHOE candles are made from 100% natural vegan soy and are biodegradable. Each candle boasts up to 50 hours burning time, but once you’ve finished burning your candle, you can reuse this vessel as a beautiful vase or drinking glass. A perfect, sustainable Greek gift for Easter or any time of year!
CORFOOT Leather Children’s Shoes
Easter represents new life and rebirth, so what better time to honour the little ones in your life? If you have or know anyone with a newborn, CORFOOT soft shoes are the perfect gift.
Each pair is handmade in Corfu using naturally tanned 100% genuine Nappa leather. They’re super soft to ensure maximum comfort and are also proven to help with balance, muscle strength and coordination.
Enikeoros Watercolour Paintings
Easter is a great time to do some spring cleaning and re-decorating. Why not spruce up your home with Enikeoros art and photography?
Enikeoros is a brand created in Corfu by Budapest-born artist, Eniko Orosz. The influences of the island can be felt in her art – she even uses Ionian seawater in each piece. She uses recycled materials to complete each of her stunning watercolour paintings.
