My little boy is one of those unusual children who doesn’t like chocolate. He once tried a piece at around 18 months old, was hugely unimpressed and hasn’t touched a piece since. He reliably informs me he will like it when he’s older, although I’m not too sure at what point he will decide he is “old enough” to enjoy it.
As chocolate eggs don’t go down well with our little man we have to be a little more creative with our Easter gifts as he still likes to feel the Easter spirit, just without the sweet stuff.
Here’s our top pics of non-chocolate Easter gifts for under a tenner:
- The Tale of Peter Rabbit Book (£4.99) – You can’t go wrong with a little bit of Beatrix Potter, and Peter Rabbit makes a lovely Easter gift.
- A Personalised “Scribble” Egg Cup (£8.99) – My little boy may not like chocolate eggs but he loves dippy eggs and this is the perfect gift for him. We were sent one from Born Gifted and it really is lovely, see photo below.
- Rabbit in a Carrot (£5.99) – How sweet are these? Such a lovely idea and a great alternative to chocolate for younger children.
- Egg Pets (£6) – These little guys are designed to sit perfectly in an egg cup or box. There are six to collect, so you could coordinate with friends and family to fill an egg box, they would look great on an Easter table.
- Easter Colour In Finger Puppets (£4.49) – A great idea for a present if you also want something to keep your little ones entertained for a while too.
- Grow It Yourself Mini Garden Egg Set (£8.45) – A mini garden inside an egg, I want one of these for myself!
- Easter Bunny Crayons (£5.50) – You can never have too many crayons can you? I must have bought hundreds but they seems to disappear into some crayon black hole so I’m always happy to have more.
- Hide and Squeak Eggs (£6.79) – We bought these as an Easter gift for O when he was 18 months old, three years later he still plays with them. A great gift for toddlers.
- Easter Egg Kit (£4) – Finally, a gift for the crafty ones. This little kit comes with printed and pre-cut card and stickers to transform the eggs into four animal characters.
Happy shopping and I hope you have a Happy Easter.
