Top non-choc gifts for Easter!

It seems like just yesterday we were packing away the Christmas Tree, and yet we are sure those Easter Eggs have been on the shelves for months. Already got chocolate fatigue? Try these Easter gifts that are easier on the waistline, and add more interest to your celebrations!

For the littlest of children, you can choose a super cute bunny or bilby from Teddy Bear Treasures! With the help of books, make Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit household names with this beautiful collection of Peter Rabbit stories, a compilation that will be treasured through childhood and beyond. Why not add a gorgeous pull along Peter Rabbit or Jemima Puddleduck soft toy for the complete experience!

For older children, boys will be racing to the breakfast table everyday with this ‘eggsplode’ cup holder and soldier toast cutterGirls will enjoy growing their very own flower from an egg, which is sure to keep hands busy tending to the garden long after the chocolate has melted.

For older tweens and teens, it is a great tradition to buy a new set of pyjamas each easter … Peter Alexander always stocks up with the cutest of ‘bunny jammies’, but why not try some of our small Aussie businesses such as Magnolia Lounge or go crazy and get some custom PJ’s printed with their own face!!

Edible blooms have some wonderful gift ideas for grown ups, and any delivery to an office the day before work finishes up for a long weekend is sure to keep your loved one happy.

Maybe you are planning to head out of town for the Easter long weekend? Why not invest in a quality tent the whole family can enjoy, and reap the rewards for years to come. 

If you are celebrating Easter with family or friends, reward your Easter BBQ hostess a gorgeous keepsake gift instead of some Cadbury Favourites. Zanui have an excellent range of planters which are stylish, and embrace the true meaning of Easter – new life. 

Add some fun and nominate a favourite Uncle to dress up like the Easter Bunny in a costume from Costume Box!  Throw in some wooden egg shakers to add a festive touch to your conga line!! The kids are sure to be entertained, and we know it will give the grown ups a giggle too!

But if your attitude is to throw caution to the wind with  ‘hey – you only get to indulge once a year!’… go all out with an amazing book of inspiration: Donna Hay: Simple Essentials Chocolate. There are 60 recipes to choose from, so you should find something for everyone!

For a healthy alternative, head to Biome for organic, gluten and dairy free Easter treat options… they are fair trade and look great too!

Whatever you do, be happy and stay safe! 🐰
