Seven Top Easter Gift Ideas

If you're looking for some crafty activities to do with the kids this Easter weekend, or just a fun way to present your Easter treats, read on for some fun Easter gift ideas...

1. Edible Flowers
Why we love them:
  • They're quick, easy and inexpensive to make
  • You can make them from lots of different types of sweets - lollies, chocolates and marshmallows. 
  • You could make a bunch of them to giveaway, or pop them in the garden for the kids to find on their Easter Egg Hunt.

2. Gifts in plastic Easter Egg
Why we love them:
  • These plastic Easter eggs are so versatile that you can fill them with anything - not just chocolate. We love the idea of filling them with socks and other trinkets. 
  • They're fun and brightly coloured so the kids will love finding these as much as the chocolate eggs on their Easter Egg Hunt. 
  • These eggs can also be used for big kids too! Fill them with nail polish, makeup or other pampering treats for adults.

3. Easter basket for Dads
Why we love it:
  • Cause Dad's deserve an Easter treat too!
  • Turning a baseball cap upside down and filling it with treats means that Dad has something to keep once all the treats are gone.

  • They're inexpensive

5. Candy Cone
Why we love it:
  • It's easy to make and looks great
  • You can fill it with any sweets you like
  • The materials you need to make one are easy to source and don't cost much - cellophane, ribbon, sweets and an icecream cone. 
  • You can pop some marshmallows or larger sweets inside the cone to fill out out and then place smaller sweets on top.

  • They are inexpensive to make

Why we love it:
