If your children are anything like mine, they will get enough Easter Eggs this Easter to last them until next Christmas, and so for that reason we tend to leave chocolate gifts to friends and family. And while Easter seems to have gone a little crazy in recent years, becoming almost like a second Christmas, there are lots of little gifts that you can buy instead of an egg that don’t have to cost a small fortune! I thought I would share some of our favourites with you.
1. Bunny Slippers
These gorgeous bunny slippers from Accessorize are utterly adorable for little ones this Easter. I love the knitted design and soft fur lining, and at £12.99 I will definitely be getting some for my girls
2. Harrods Easter Bunny
I love this 2017 Easter Bunny from Harrods, with super soft plush fur and finished with the signature Harrods ribbon. At 35cm tall this is a lovely sized toy for ages three and over, priced at just £9.95.
3. Bunny Jump board game
This game looks like so much fun, the aim being to pull the most carrots from the field without making the bunny jump! It’s very much like Pop Up Pirates, a game which my children love, and this bunny edition is perfect for Easter. Available from Argos for £14.95.
4. Chick pyjamas
These gorgeous pyjamas are perfect for Spring/Summer, in the sweetest little chick pattern! Made from the softest cotton in a shorts and vest design, they are available in ages 2-12 years which is great for people like me who love their children to match! Available from John Lewis at just £13.
5. Bunny ice lolly makers
This is a lovely set of six fun woodland bunny lolly makers. Just pop in fruit juice or squash and fill the mould with your favourite flavours to create delicious homemade ice lollies! Each lolly mould holds approx. 140ml. A bargain at just £5.95 from dot com gift shop.
6. Sweet home rabbit umbrella
My children go crazy for umbrellas and I know that they would love this gorgeous Sweet Home rabbit umbrella from Amazon. At £16.99 it’s a little more expensive than your average umbrella but you can’t put a price on cuteness!
7. Personalised egg cup
Available in a choice of designs with up to 12 letters personalisation, these little egg cups are perfect Easter! I found these over on Ebay, and at £7.99 and an affordable gift.
8. Hungry Bunny Night Light
This hungry bunny night light is so sweet, and at just £3.95 is the same price as an Easter egg! With an LED light and an off switch, I know that my children would adore one of these for bedtime. Available from dot com gift shop.
9. Fair Trade sheep purse
This Fair Trade Sheep Purse is the perfect place for an animal lover to keep their pennies! Fully lined and with a zip fastening, it’s an absolute steal at just £4.19, and even better for every order placed money will be donated to an animal charity.
While the Easter bunny might not be bringing a barrow full of chocolate for the children, I’m secretly hoping that he brings a few eggs my way!!
