8 of the best: Non-candy Easter basket gifts

All of the fun of Easter... without the sugar meltdown.


Easter is an absolutely lovely religious holiday to celebrate with family and children. Welcome Spring with an Easter egg hunt, sweet crafts, a special Sunday lunch, and Easter gift baskets.


And while we love a chocolate egg as much as the next person, a thoughtfully prepared non-candy Easter gift basket for the kids will avoid a sugar meltdown, and gift them with practical, fun gifts that they’ll play with all year long.


The Easter kitchen

Welcome Spring with delectable sweeties that won’t leave cavities. These sweet treats are a delight in any child’s play kitchen… and we’ve thrown in some solid wooden eggs for good measure too.


1 Ice Cream Maker Playset, 3 years+ ($34.99) 2 Scrumptious Cupcakes, 3 years+  ($11.99) 3 Delectable Desserts – Petit Fours, 3 years+ ($14.99) 4 Eggcellent Eggs, 2 years+ ($9.99)


Back to nature

Easter is when nature begins waking after its long winter slumber. Delight young ones with an animal-themed puzzle, or gather the family around the table for a game of Honeycomb Havoc. Any of these options will be a winner long after the Easter break is over.
