I couldn’t agree more with the slogan: The Incredible Edible Egg. Eggs are good on so many levels, and they’re great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They’re even great in desserts! But lately I’ve been thinking about boiled eggs, namely the soft kind. When I was a kid, my mother used to make me a soft-boiled egg nestled in a cup with a slice of toast smothered in Marmite cut into thin strips, which would get dipped into the delicious, oozy yolk. Mmmmm I’m feeling nostalgic for this simple comfort, so I’ve gathered some wonderful egg gifts.
The other wonderful thing about soft boiled eggs is the egg cups. They don’t have to be a simple cradle. There are some fantastically fun egg cups on the market, making a comforting egg even more time. Some are pretty, some are practical, some are hilariously funny.

These bird egg cups are so pretty and cute. The colors are fashionable, and I love the detail of the flower on the bird’s wing. The design is even practical, with the bird’s tail becoming a handle.

Adorable! I love these Miss Nessie egg cups. So creative. The elegant Loch Ness Monster swims in a tray reminiscent of the lake of Loch Ness and carries your egg on her back. Each egg cup is sold separately, and you can get the purple here, the turquoise here and the yellow here. They’d make a great gift separately or as a set. They’re even part of a set of Miss Nessie kitchen utensils, so once you’ve got your giftee hooked, you’ll be able to keep buying more from the set.

Haha! This set of two sumo egg cups is as cute as it is hilarious. They’re made of hard plastic with a silicone mawashi (the traditional belt) and dishwasher safe for easy clean up. And best yet, if you’re eating with a friend or partner, you can have a real food fight! 😉
