Cracking Alternative Easter Gift Ideas for Kids

We’d hazard a guess that, after Christmas, the next favourite holiday for children is Easter. Remember the excitement of grabbing your basket and heading outside for an Easter egg hunt? The thrill of finding chocolate eggs in the garden never gets old; that is, as long as you remember to keep the dog inside! If you’re searching for some alternative Easter bunny gifts for your little ones to discover alongside the chocolate, we’ve got some eggscellent ideas (...sorry).

Mini LED Rabbit Night Light

This is one of our favourite Easter gift ideas for kids because it’s a gift that keeps on giving! After all the chocolate bunnies and eggs are consumed, this sweet rabbit lamp will still be lighting up storytime in your child’s bedroom. Emitting a soft glow, it’s the perfect companion to set them on the path to lullaby land.

Bunny Earrings by Acorn & Will

Older children will love finding Acorn & Will’s bunny earrings on their Easter hunt. These sweet enamel rabbits are handmade and nickel-free.

Knitted Bunny Rabbit

Meri Meri’s cute knitted bunny is a fab Easter present for younger kids (especially, if you’re trying to avoid a sugar overdose). As it’s small enough for little ones to carry with them, we reckon they’ll be best friends long before Easter weekend’s over.

Bunny Hair Slides

Meri Meri’s bunny hair grips are another Easter gift idea that the kids will love all year round. These sweet slides are made from felt and feature pom pom tails.

Artisan chocolate bunnies

While we’ve focused the majority of our list on alternative Easter presents for kids, we can’t forget the chocolate! We like our chocolate bunnies from Creighton’s - their strawberry and white chocolate version is particularly delicious. Each bunny comes in a plastic bunny-shaped case which you can save and re-fill with more treats next year. They also feature a hanging loop, making them ideal for hiding in trees for your egg hunt!

Throwing your own Easter party for the kids?

Those who are familiar with Meri Meri will know that cute is their middle name. If you’re throwing an Easter celebration for children, Meri Meri’s adorable party accessories are just what you need. What could be sweeter than bunny-shaped plates and crackers? Maybe their adorable bunny pinata party favours that are packed with confetti and Easter temporary tattoos! To keep the kids busy, we recommend Meri Meri’s Easter egg decorating kit (don’t worry, there are instructions!)
