Spring flowers, baby lambs and longer days. The Easter holidays are nearly upon us and for many thinking about Easter means chocolate. But if you are thinking of having a more ethical Easter this year or would just like to minimise the sticky fingers and the dreaded sugar rush, we have the perfect selection of alternative Easter gifts for kids and adults.
Fill an adult Easter basket with unique Easter gifts including gorgeous fair trade felt decorations, super soft bamboo socks in contemporary spring colours and bath treats that certainly smell good enough to eat. And donâ€™t feel you have to miss out on the easter egg hunt. Easter morning can still start with a visit from the easter bunny, just replace the chocolate eggs with reusable eggs, hard boiled eggs (a great easter craft) or wooden egg toys that are just as much fun. We even have some adorable wooden rabbit toys and stuffed animals to replace the chocolate bunnies.
Easter Gifts for Adults and Children
Need a little inspiration for your Easter gifts?
Easter celebration tends to involve a fair amount of chocolate eggs and we love chocolate. If you would like the Easter bunny to be a bit more ethical this year then we have lots of organic, fair trade chocolate to choose from, without the excessive packaging. Divine milk chocolate and Choc Affair smooth white chocolate are popular Easter treats for kids while our range of dark chocolate, all made with Fairtrade cocoa, will go down well for those with more refined tastes. And because its fair trade certified you know the farmers will be having a good Easter Sunday too.
If you are looking for dairy-free easter goodies there are plenty of vegan chocolate bars to choose from. Or try the gluten-free vegan fudge mini fudge set. You could even add an ethical vegan nail polish or lip balm for a unique Easter gift.
However, we also have lots of non-chocolate Easter gift ideas at Danuworld. And all the ingredients you might need for your Easter gift baskets.
Alternative Easter gifts for kids
Ostheimer and Holztiger both make delightful wooden animals that are the perfect alternative to sweet treats. The bunnies or Easter hare are lovely for toddlers to play with and are great ideas for babyâ€™s first easter. The parents will love them too. The Ostheimer duckling is perfect for small hands and could be packaged in one of our fair trade rainbow egg cups for an extra special treat.
The Moulin Roty Metal Easter Eggs are a beautiful alternative to plastic eggs which can be filled with pretty much whatever you like. The wooden animals work perfectly but you could also fill with candy, homemade dairy-free chocolate truffles, or even the next clue on the easter egg hunt.
Older kids might prefer the challenge of Tegu magnetic blocks or one for the Plan Toys tins, both of which would be great Easter presents or scavenger hunt prizes. While an easter baby can have fun with the Nachen carrot rattle.
Gift Ideas for Adults
Who said Easter was just for children? Keep the easter bunnies busy and spoil everyone this Easter with ethical gifts that last. The Respiin baskets make a great starting point for Easter gift baskets and can be filled with anything from hot cross buns and Easter candy to 100% natural handmade bath products. Or we have some great ready-made sets to choose from.
Our top five alternative Easter present ideas:
Thought Pastoral Bamboo Socks Gift box. Blissfully soft with fun spring patterns they will brighten up and sock drawer and their feet will love you. The bamboo briefs and boxers are equally soft and just as beautifully packaged.
Seedballs. As new life emerges all around us what better gift to give than beautiful vibrant flowers that the bees will love. These clever little balls can be planted pretty much anywhere and are easy to grow so perfect for children as well as adults.
For a calorie-free treat that is every bit as indulgent, choose any of our divine bath melts and team with a cup of Hooglyâ€™s guilt-free chocolate brownie tea.
A recycled diamond weave throw. Fairly traded and woven with super soft threads made out of recycled plastic bottles collected by street children these are the ultimate ethical gift to snuggle under and keep warm if the sun doesnâ€™t shine or take outside for a picnic when the weather warms up.
If you really want to spoil someone this Easter why not give a cosy fair-trade hoody. With gorgeous options for men and women, the Pachamama knitted jumpers are an ethical fashion win. Fleece lined they will keep you warm on the coldest of days and they look great too.
And if all else fails you can say happy Easter with a gift card.
