Easter, the time when kids are given enough chocolate to keep them on a sugar high until Christmas comes around! Despite being the traditional gift of choice there are plenty of non-chocolate alternatives on the market, so I decided to put together a few of our favourites to give you some alternative gift inspiration.
Not On The High Street – Egg Cups
In keeping with the Easter theme egg cups make the perfect gift and Not On The High Street offer a great range of funky deigns with something for everyone. There are so many to choose from, but my favourites are the personalised cups – I really love giving personalised gifts it just adds something a little special! I also really love the Dinosaur Egg Cups which come in a range of breeds and the Easter design cups are super cute too!

Easter Themed Books
If you read my blog you will know that we are a family of avid readers so it’s no surprise that books are one of my favourite things to gift. A few of my top picks are Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt, Mr. Impossible and the Easter Egg Hunt ,We’re Going on an Egg Hunt (great for fans of the similar bear hunt book!) and Peter Rabbit: Easter Egg Hunt!. My top picks are for younger children however there are so many Easter themed books on the shelves so there is plenty of choice for every age. For me you can’t go wrong gifting a book of any kind themed or not!
What2Buy4Kids sells a massive range of high quality toys delivered with top quality service to match. They have a huge range of Easter toys in their online store and I have chosen my top picks for you! Spring is dawning and with it the hope that the weather improves and I’m loving the Gardening Sets ideal for little outdoor helpers! Alternatively, there is a range of Grow kits including Little Miss Princess and Mr Happy the perfect introduction to gardening! For crafty kids the Bunny or Lamb in a tin are fantastic, with everything needed to make and sew their very own cuddly toy!
They really do have something for suitable for kids of every age even those slightly older and harder to buy for. The cute Bunny Bath Bomb and the Floss & Rock Bunny Pencil Case would make perfect gifts for Tweens.

The fizzies are handmade in the UK and you can chose from mouth-watering Banana, Cherry, Mango or Tangerine & Grapefruit scents. Having given them all a try I can vouch for the fact that they all smell amazing and I would struggle to pick my favourite! These would make the perfect unique Easter gift!

Other themes include Unicorns & Rainbows and Superhero.

Thanks for reading 😃 the Dino egg cups are so cute aren’t they!!! I’m the same with my kids it’s so hard not to just buy everything isn’t it! Glad you enjoyed the post and happy it has given you some inspiration .
THOSE DINOSAUR EGG CUPS. I cannot get over how cute they are!! I’m for sure buying those when I move out, my partner would bloody love them too haha, kids at heart! I’m always a sucker for bath goodies too and egg shaped ones are an adorable idea. I think Easter is beginning to die out in the traditional sense so this is a really good post for alternative present ideas!
Thanks for reading 😃 I agree with you I would have no hesitation having some Dino egg cups even if I didn’t have the kids- they are super cute! Highly recommend the bath eggs too they smell delicious and leave your skin lovely and soft!
So many amazing ideas! I really liked the egg cups and bath goodies you had found here. Very cute gift idea! If I had a bathtub I would probably buy all of those cute bath products for myself too 😄
Thanks for reading 😃 glad you liked the ideas, such a shame you don’t have a bath, you will have to find a neighbour who has one!!!!
Thanks for including my Squidgydoodle Spring Surprise Craft Box with all these other great ideas. My youngest daughter would love the dinosaur egg cups!
You are very welcome Debbie 😃 the egg cups are pretty cute aren’t they! Thanks for reading my post
Aaaargh, Easter chocolate. We still have loads left over from Christmas (and even some coins from Hallowe’en, would you believe?). This is a brilliant alternative gift guide, fantastic gift choices – my absolute favourite are the dinosaur egg cups and the egg bath fizzies, Flora would adore both of them! Thank you for the round up 🙂 xx

What brilliant ideas for Easter gifts! I always like to get (for myself) novelty egg cups, as I collect them. I haven’t seen many out in the shops for Easter (though I got a lovely set of Marmite ones) so I’ll be checking out the Not On The High Street site. Thanks for sharing, Melanie! 😀 xxx
