Think Outside the Basket: Unique Easter Gift Alternatives

With Easter just around the corner, many of us are on the hunt for the perfect gift to give our loved ones. While chocolate is a classically popular and well-loved choice, we understand that some people may be looking for something a little different this year.

If you’re tired of giving the same old Easter treats, why not consider an alternative gift such as slow-fashion country clothing and accessories?

Not only are these gifts unique and thoughtful, but they also have a positive impact on the environment and support local Australian small businesses.

So the question is…

What can you give instead of Easter eggs? 

And what can you get someone who doesn’t like chocolate?

Keep on reading because we’ve compiled a list of sustainable and eco-friendly gift ideas that will avoid the post-chocolate sugar rush blues, and create treasured memories instead.

Alternative Easter Gifts for Kids


Instead of gifting something that only lasts a few days, why not gift something that will keep the kids entertained? Our collection of books is a fantastic gift to keep your kids engaged with some family fun time.

I love reading books with my kids, it’s one of my favourite excuses to snuggle up by a fire as we head into our colder months, plus it’s a great way to show that you care with some quality time together.

And there’s no better way to show that other than our featured book: C is for Care.

This educational resource helps young readers learn the alphabet while exploring the bond farmers have with their cattle. 

So why don’t you light up a fire, make some hot chocolate rather than eating it, and read a classic book with your kids instead?!

Sustainable Children's Clothing

The importance of choosing sustainable options is so much more important now than it has ever been. Easter consumerism is increasing year after year and if buying Easter chocolate isn’t your thing - then maybe buying ethical, affordable, and sustainable kids' clothing may be the right choice instead.

At Little Windmill Clothing Co, we believe in creating versatile clothing with high quality, so it can be loved and passed down for generations. Our clothing range has been carefully designed to suit farm life outdoors whilst also upholding a refined touch to be worn for special occasions.

Our latest range The Dry Storm Collection is our largest collection yet! It’s a beautiful clothing range for the country lifestyle and urban occasions.

Kids Accessories


What can you use for Easter egg baskets that don’t go to waste?

The answer: a hat!

Another great alternative Easter gift could be gifting your child their first leather belt.

Stylish, durable and versatile, leather belts make the perfect practical accessory to complete any outfit and are a thoughtful gift option for both boys and girls.
