Are you looking for alternative Easter gifts for kids?
We love Easter in this household and will have endless Easter Egg Hunts with friends over the coming weeks.
However we have a small problem, that I am sure for all sorts of reasons you might too. Freddie has never been particularly interested in chocolate or sweets….. I know shocker!
He gets Easter Eggs from family but we always buy him something else, as to be honest it is normally me eating his Easter Eggs anyway! This year I thought I would compile a list of Easter Egg Alternatives if your child doesn’t like, or can’t eat chocolate.

This perfect Easter gift also comes with a detachable carrot and bucket, plus 2 Easter eggs and flowers, and stands on a buildable collector’s baseplate with an Easter calendar and BrickHeadz logo for easy display.

These new Itty Bittys from Hallmark are absolutely great for a small gift, and make for a great alternative Easter gift. These small plush characters come in all sorts of designs, from Star Wars, DC Comics, Marvel, Scooby Doo and the Flintstones, so there is something for absolutely anyone. They are just 10cm tall and retail at £6. They can be purchased from Amazon or in store at Hallmark.
I love the look of this Easter book. Captain Awesome and the Easter Egg Bandit is a perfect book choice for boys. To celebrate Easter, Eugene and his classmates decorate some eggs at school. Eugene’s is the most mighty of all! But when he enters the classroom the next day–GASP!–they’re gone! This is a case for Captain Awesome and the Sunnyview Superhero Squad.
Playmobil Robo Gangsta Spy Glider
I am not sure why I have never seen these before, I must walk around with my eyes closed. This is just fantastic, this is a plastic Easter egg with a Playmobil toy in. This is a fantastic alternative Easter gift for boys. I know most little boys would actually prefer this to a chocolate egg!
We love playing board games in this house, and I think Bunny Kingdom Game is a great alternative for an Easter Egg. Peace has come at last to the great Bunny Kingdom! Lead your clan of rabbits to glory by gathering resources and building new cities across the land! Draft cards and pick the right ones to position your warrens on the 100 squares of the board, provide resources to your colonies, build new cities to increase your influence, and plan your strategy to score big at the end of the game. This is suitable for children over 14 though.
If you want to treat them this Easter, why not get Splatoon 2? Claim turf anytime, anywhere, with anyone in Splatoon 2, only on Nintendo Switch. Traditional 4-on-4 turf battles return in this full sequel, along with returning modes, new stages, new fashions, new weapons and much more.
The aim is simple in Turf War: claim as much territory as possible by coating it in your team’s colours. The team with the most turf wins! Transform into a squid to swiftly swim through your team’s ink. Use these talents to scale walls coated in your colours to reach high-up vantage points, lie in wait for unsuspecting players, or cook up devious strategies.
Have an Easter Family break
Why not really treat the whole family over the Easter break? There is still time to book an Easter holiday at Pontins. Available in 5 destinations across the United Kingdom; Brean Sands in Somerset; Camber Sands in Sussex; Pakefield in Suffolk; Prestatyn in North Wales; Southport and Sand Bay in Weston Super Mare.
I have asked some blogger friends what there favourite Easter Egg alternatives are:
Terri from the Strawberry Fountain recommends a game called Googly Eyes
Jenny from the Gingerbread House recommends Playmobil Easter Eggs
Sara from Jodhpurps for Maisie “As a child we didn’t have Easter eggs we always had a Easter book. I tried to carry on the tradition but Maisie is having nine of it so we compromise and she has an egg and a book”
Hayley from Winging it with 2 boys “We’ve not done eggs for our boys this year (both sets of grandparents are getting them eggs so it seemed a bit pointless us buying as well) – instead they’ve got a little Paw Patrol toy each”
Katie from Mum of 2.5 “I bought the Orchard Egg Hun Mini Game in Sainsburys the other day for my 4 year old son. He loves the Orchard Games and so do I as the quality is always great and the whole family can join in https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/…/orchard-egg-hunt-mini…
Lynsey at Mummy thats Me “We buy Easter themed books. This year my 2 year old has got Peppa Pigs Easter egg hunt and my daughter has a Peter Rabbit Easter sticker book”
