Embrace country style with these unique Easter gifts for kids
You know the year is going way too fast when you realise Easter is literally just around the corner. Yep, I’ve checked my calendar. It’s nearly here.
Seriously, wasn’t Christmas only a few weeks back? Are we really here in March already?
Sure, we’ve been able to buy hot cross buns since Boxing Day, but I thought we had more time until the next big holiday. Alas, here we are, with Easter nearly upon us.
Which means it’s time to think about Easter gifts for the kids.
Is there an alternative to chocolate Easter gifts?
Chocolate is the go-to gift of choice for most of us at Easter. But there’s only so much chocolate our kids can take (despite what they might say!) Besides, with family and friends giving our kids gifts at Easter as well, you won’t be the only parent trying to limit the kids’ chocolate haul this year.
While chocolate is the gift idea most often linked to Easter, there are other ways to celebrate the season without hyping up your kids or loading them with sugar for the next 6 months. Even better, these Easter gift ideas are guaranteed to last longer, giving your kids joy for years to come.
Easter gift ideas for country-loving kids
With Easter heralding the beginning of autumn and cooler weather, why not bypass the chocolate altogether and give your kids a different kind of gift this year? Here are some ideas to make Easter extra-special for your kids (without the sugar high).
I love sharing books with my kids - reading to them in the evening is the best part of my day. And autumn is the perfect time to snuggle up with a book as the mornings and evenings grow that little bit cooler. That’s why I think picture books make a great Easter gift for younger kids. It’s a present that will last and create loving memories for you and the kids.
With the days getting shorter, finding things to do inside will become more important. So, why not give your kids an educational toy this Easter to make the transition to inside play a little easier? From organic rattles for your littlest ones to building blocks and cuddly toys for your bigger kids, there are so many options that trump chocolate for Easter gifts.
If your kids are like mine, they seem to grow overnight. With winter around the corner, Easter is the perfect time to replenish their wardrobe with some classic country style. You could make it a truly special Easter this year by gifting adorable rompers and jumpsuits for your tots or delighting your little one with a gorgeous outfit that matches mummy’s!
While autumn brings some welcome relief from the heat, the sun can still pack a punch which is why a hat is another great non-chocolate Easter gift for your kids. From funky trucker caps to cute bucket hats, you can have fun finding kids’ hats to mix & match with their outfits. Bonus - they make awesome Easter baskets for the obligatory egg hunt!
For something a little different, buy them a special pair of country-style boots for Easter. Ideal for leafy autumn walks or to show off when out and about, a pair of super-cool cowboy boots or colourful mocs may just become your kids’ favourite pair of shoes. Imagine not having a fight to get ready in the mornings - this gift could make that dream a reality!
