Alternative Gift Ideas for Kids this Easter

I LOVE Easter!  And whilst we love chocolate in our house, I think its lovely to consider alternative Easter gift options for children.  That doesn’t mean to say we haven’t brought the kids chocolate eggs.  We have (but not a huge load!) and we know that the fridge gets full of chocolate. We also prefer to get them something that we can do or play with over the Easter Break.  With not many places opening until the 12th April, we know we are going to be spending some time at home and therefore, in addition to some Eggs, I wanted to get the kids some crafty and fun items too!  We have had some lovely wicker baskets for the last few years and I love to fill them with little gifts and chocolate for the ultimate Easter surprise.

So, if your looking for some Easter gift inspiration that are alternative to Easter Eggs in time for Easter, then read on!

Mr K has recently turned 4!  I grabbed a few items to add to his large Easter Egg including:

– Dinosaur Roar Book (B&M Bargains)

– Paint your own Bunny Egg Cup (B&M Bargains)

– Spinning and Light up Bath Bomb (B&M Bargains)

In addition, I also brought some lovely chocolate items from Elegantly Sweet.  Each of the kiddos will get a bunny bar and a chocolate egg lolly.  The kinder egg and sweets packet was also made through my work by a lovely local lady.  They each have a mini Smarties egg too.

I love love LOVE creating an Easter Egg Hunt for them on Easter morning.  This is a really simple and cheap egg pack from Morrisons which they’ll love.  It even comes with the signs!

I hope this blog post has offered you some gift inspiration for alternative ideas to buying your children a zillion Easter eggs!  Whilst my kids love their chocolate, I love to offer something as an alternative and bring some games or activities into the mix!  These items were all reasonably priced too with items around the £2-£4 each.
