The Easter bank holiday is something people look forward to all year, partly because it’s the first break since the Christmas period, and partly because it’s a chance to indulge your sweet tooth in some delicious chocolate. While this is always a great treat, if you would like to give your loved ones something other than Easter eggs this year here are a few alternative Easter gifts that you might want to consider.
Arts and Crafts Kits
This can make an excellent gift for kids and adults alike, and having a fun Easter-themed arts and craft project on Easter Sunday can be a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Whether it’s creating Easter bonnets, painting eggs, cross-stitch, knitting, or even a baking kit for some Easter biscuits or cupcakes, there are plenty of kits to choose from that are suitable for a range of ages.
Another great way to pass the tome on a Sunday afternoon while your roast dinner is cooking is curling up with a good book. If you want to try and encourage your kids to read more, one or two new books to add to their library could be a great alternative to a chocolate egg, or as an additional Easter gift. It’s also a great gift for adults, particularly if you know someone who is an avid reader.
This is a good gift idea that is likely better for adults, depending on the content of the hamper. Food hampers would be especially welcome on Easter Sunday, whether they have chocolate in them or not. You could also get a selection of fine wines and cheeses, cakes and teas, or even non-food hampers like ones filled with beauty products or retro games. Gift hampers make excellent presents for any occasion, so if you are looking for an alternative to an Easter egg this could be the ideal solution.
Easter often marks the changing of the seasons and it’s usually at a time when the spring weather brings brighter days and warmer temperatures. This is why getting some new clothes could be a good Easter gift, particularly items that are more suitable for the sunnier weather. It could be a lovely summer dress, new shoes, a light jacket, or even some summery accessories.
A Bouquet of Fresh Flowers
If you have been invited to a friend or relative’s house for Easter lunch, or you want to let someone else know that you’re thinking about them on this day, then sending a gorgeous bouquet of fresh spring flowers could be a lovely and thoughtful gift. Flowers always brighten up the room, and it’s something people rarely treat themselves to, particularly not a carefully curated bunch from the florists.
If you would like to give your kids or the adults in your life a gift for Easter than isn’t chocolate-based, consider these alternative ideas and see which ones would be suitable for the person you’re getting the gift for.
