Easter gifting isn't all about chocolate or at least it doesn't have to be. Don't get us wrong we are big fans of cocoa in all its forms and have sourced some irresistible fair trade artisan chocolate for you to indulge in. However, giving and receiving dozens of overpriced and overpackaged chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter or Spring is probably not the best idea for the planet or your health.
So in the spirit of celebration we've compiled a collection of thoughtful alternative Easter gifts for adults and children that will still tick all the boxes a good easter present should and delight the recipient for far longer than a chocolate treat. Create your own easter gift baskets full of Easter treats or choose from one of our ideas for kids or adults below.
Alternative Easter Gifts for Kids
For children, it's all too easy for Easter morning and the Easter holidays in general to become all about waiting for the Easter bunny to come and the all-important easter egg hunt to begin. But not everyone wants their kids to be fueled by chocolate for two weeks and some children are either too little for it to be appropriate or can't have chocolate at all.
However, there are loads of options for gifts other than Easter candy that they can fill their Easter baskets or bag with.
When buying for adults it's pretty easy to move away from easter eggs and switch to non-chocolate Easter gifts instead. So with that in mind, we have chosen a few of our favourite ethically traded items that we think make great Easter gift ideas. Although the chocolate mystery box could still be a winner for the chocoholics out there, milk, white and dark chocolate with not a creme egg in sight.
We also have a great range of felt easter decorations, perfect for decorating an Easter tree or having a chocolate free easter hunt.
