Poppet is almost one & although we are happy for her to have a bit of chocolate we did not want her getting lots of chocolate for Easter. Knowing that she would be bought some chocolate by other family members, we decided to put together an Easter basket of none chocolate gifts. Here are a few ideas I’ve seen around that would make a great Easter gift for little ones.
1. Easter bunny in a carrot (£9.95, Not on the high street.com) – Why should newborn babies miss out on all the Easter fun? I think this looks totally adorable. Perfect for newborn but also lovely for older children too.
2. Set of 6 Easter bunny crayons (£5.50, Not on the high street.com) – I’ve featured these fantastic crayons on the blog before but this set is just perfect for encouraging creativity this Easter.
3. Wooden stacking puzzle (£7.99, Kiddiecare). Farm animal stacking puzzle, suitable from 12 months.
4. Easter cookie cutters (£2.66, Sainsburys) – Why not make up a batch of play dough to go with these cute cookie cutters? See this post from One perfect day for more information and ideas (you can pick up pom poms, googly eyes and pipe cleaners cheaply in the works or pound shops).
5. Hape farm animal puzzle (£8.95, Kiddiecare) – another wooden puzzle with a farm animal design.
6. Spot’s first Easter (£5.99) – A classic board book, perfect for little ones at Easter. Books make a great gift for little ones, on any occasion.
7. Happyland happy farm animals (£8, get 20% off all happyland until 23rd April) – We’ve bought this set for Poppet. Her first happyland toy, perfect as she is fascinated by animals at the moment (as you can see in this post).
8. ELC large floral bunny (£12, smaller version available) – Another great bunny cuddly toy suitable from birth.
9. Hape push pull toys, duck (£11.50) and rabbit (£11.05, both Kiddiecare) – I can’t decide between these two at the moment but one of them is likely to be gifted to Poppet on her first birthday.
10. Peter Rabbit Easter egg hunt (£4.99) – Another classic, lift the flap book. There are also several new animated Peter Rabbit Easter books available this year (but I prefer the classics).
11. That’s not my lamb… (£5.99) – I chose this one for Poppet but there is also a piglet, bunny and duck book, perfect for spring.
I picked up a plastic Easter basket from my local supermarket to put Poppet’s gifts in. I’ve seen Easter baskets in many high streets this year & all very reasonably priced. Will you be buying your little ones any none chocolate gifts this Easter?
