The best Easter egg alternatives for the family

Inside: Alternative gift ideas for Easter for kids that don’t want or can’t have chocolate. Gifted items included.

Are you looking for Easter gifts but don’t want to end up with tonnes of chocolate? I hear you! Mainly because I am the one who ends up scoffing the lot!! Right?

With one of my kids being dairy-free I am always on the lookout for chocolate alternatives anyway and these are the best ones that stood out for me this year!


You can’t beat books for any occasion if you ask me. This Peter Rabbit Easter story is really lovely and perfect for little ones. Available on Amazon now.

Toy eggs

More than ever, kids need entertaining and so instead of a chocolate egg that will be gone in 2 seconds, why not treat them to an egg-themed toy that they can play with over and over again.

This Playmobil egg is such a cute idea! There are 4 to choose from, with different characters and accessories inside. Mine love to keep the eggs too so that they can keep their trinkets inside. Available from

Hatchimals are always a hit with mine and this Spring Bouquet is really fun. Again, the bouquet itself can be reused to hold the little Hatchimal characters as a nice display. Available from Smyths Toy Superstore for home delivery.

Edible treats

Haribo is bringing us joy right now and these Easter treats will definitely make us smile! With new Easter shaped treats, this makes a great chocolate egg alternative. Available from various supermarkets.

Not going to lie, I’ve eaten most of this already! It is delicious and makes for a right treat for the adults! Everything is amazing but my personal favourite is the Trio of Chocolate Popcorn. Take a look at the full Easter range over on the Joe & Seph’s website now.

I hope that gives you some inspiration for some Easter gifts for your family. With online delivery, you can also order it to be delivered direct to friends and family. Enjoy!

I was gifted some of these products in return for a feature in this post. All words and thoughts are my own.
