Easter Gift Ideas for Kids – Gingerlilly Australia Easter Giveaway

Easter is a very special time for families, but it can also be a little tricky for parents trying to navigate their way around the vast array of chocolate Easter eggs and managing their consumption.

This year, Elliott will be receiving a small amount of chocolate and perhaps a couple of alternatives, one of them being a Peppa Pig book called ‘Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt’ and I’m on the lookout for something else ‘non-chocolate’.

For Elliott’s first Easter, I bought him this little guy, a porcelain bunny rabbit which was to be a keepsake for his first Easter. I thought it was a lovely idea, something to keep, something to look back on.

This is it now.

It was a great idea, but I should have known better. Elliott is a climber and he got to it one day where it had been peacefully sitting on the top of the TV cabinet for months. He pushed the dining table chair over to the TV cabinet, climbed up and started playing with it like it was one of his matchbox cars. Before I could get to him, well, you know the rest. Nothing that a little super glue can’t fix.

But really, it is more practical to buy a bunny that won’t break, a bunny that can be cuddled, its ears sucked, dragged in the dirt, played with like matchbox cars and trucks or perhaps a bunny that will be happy to sit and share a cup of tea and piece of cake….a bunny like this one from Gingerlilly.

This little guy is more practical an Easter gift than a porcelain bunny and will surely bring much more joy to a baby or a little toddler. And guess what? I have two of these cute bunnies to give away, a pink one and a blue one each with a matching romper and wrap and they all come gift boxed! Cute!

To enter, follow the prompts on the Rafflecopter below. There are two packs to giveaway and the two lucky winners can select either pink or blue and the size. You can check out these items and other adult and baby sleepware and homeware items on Gingerlilly’s Website here. Good luck!

    Non chocolate presents for us here are the first set of new, warm flannelette pi’s ready for the winter ahead.

    I usually give the little ones soft toys in an Easter theme. I have also done bunny mugs which seem to hang around for years ad come in handy for after school hot chocolates! One of my boys has a lifelong allergy to dairy so he scores jelly pythons and snakes for Easter! (I eat his share of chocolates – someone has to do it!) Blog makeover looks great too! πŸ˜€

    I love giving those egg decorating sets that you can keep for years to come or a cute rabbit statue.

    We try to do non-chocolate gifts along with a few obligatory chocolate eggs, once I got my daughter a little outfit and my boys a dinosaur toy. We also tried to get ornaments but had the same problem, eg breakage! Emily – also visiting as part of #teamIBOT

    I think it’s natural to be plagued by negative thoughts when you start something new but positive thinking can give you the faith to work at your goals. Negative talk is self defeating. Great post. πŸ™‚

    We are big on books so every easter the kids get a new pair of PJ’s and a book!! Lasts longer than chocolate!!

  8. April 2, 2014 / 12:39 am

    I love that little guy! This year I am really trying to not give so much chocolate! Normally my mother in law gives the kids toys.

    We love to give our little pidgeons a pair of new Winter PJ’s (Easter is such perfect timing!) and a new book….Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, LIttle Grey Rabbit, there are so many options!

    My little girl is only just starting solids so nothing for her this Easter. We will probably make books the focus of her Easter gifts in the future with a small amount of chocolate as a bonus.

    I like to give my kids personalised plates or cups and soft toys. I’m thinking this year I might just give my boys some lego for easter instead of chocolate as they are getting to an age now where they appreciate that more than traditional easter things. thank you! Monique πŸ™‚

    Winter sleepwear, plates and more
    Soft toy bunnies and ears in store
    Too young for chocolate, lollies or treats
    A colouring book is just as sweet!!!

    We make up playdough and put it into the plastic easter egg shells. That way we can still do an egg hunt and there’s something fun we can do together after they’ve found the eggs. It’s really best for preschoolers.

    These are all super cute, Eva! I think we’ll be going for Easter experiences rather than presents. We’re hoping to go on our first camping trip this year. Fingers crossed!

    A movie, a toothbrush and a brand new book,
    Too much of these won’t make you crook.
    The little one will get a cuddly toy,
    It will surely bring her a lot joy.

    I usually give a small wooden toy or game which doubles as a little keepsake. Last year it was wooden fishing game. Provides lots of fun for my little one nd it is Something we play Together

    My mum always buys all of the grandkids a new set of flannelette pyjamas for Easter. Last year James was only 6 weeks old at Easter and we didn’t actually get him anything (terrible parents!). This year I am thinking we will go non-chocolate and get him some books and maybe a stuffed animal (a bunny probably!).
