Easter is usually all about chocolate, however, not everyone likes chocolate – crazy! – or can eat chocolate, so how do you help them celebrate instead?
Easter is all about celebrating Spring, new life, new beginnings in nature and saying goodbye to dreary old Winter in the hope – fingers crossed – of sunshine and longer, lighter days. Therefore, while chocolate may be a popular option for some, there are many alternatives.
Cute and fluffy bunnies
As one of Easter’s symbols, bunnies come in all shapes and sizes and can be gifted in many different ways. Children will love cute, fluffy and cuddly bunnies, while teenagers and adults will love bunny ornaments to bring a smile to their face as these delightful creatures remind us of Spring and bouncing around in the sunshine.
A timeless classic
With the new Peter Rabbit film currently in cinemas, gifting a cuddly Peter Rabbit or other character will be a constant reminder of family fun-filled Easter holidays watching the film, as well as reminding others of Peter Rabbit from their childhood and passing this timeless and fun character through generation to generation.
Make them into a bunny!
While cuddly or decorative bunnies are a wonderful way to celebrate Easter, why not go one step further and make yourself or your little ones into a bunny! Giving them the opportunity to dress up as a bunny for an Easter Egg Hunt, or indeed for the whole holiday, will definitely bring the fun and excitement of the season.
Take the ‘be a bunny’ theme further and get children to decorate a Spring bonnet with Easter themed decorations and keep this long-held tradition going. Cute chicks, little – or big – eggs are ideal decorations, in all the wonderful colours of Spring. You could always make it a family tradition and hold an Easter bonnet parade!
Bespoke tags and tokens are a wonderful and permanent way to spread love and Easter decorations are no exception. Hanging wooden tags can be personalised with names or instructions for an Easter Egg Hunt; why not line them along the way with hints and tips on where to find those hidden eggs!
Eggs but not chocolate
You can’t really have Easter without eggs but they do not need to be of the chocolate variety! Colourful ceramic, glass and wooden eggs make ideal presents to gift the welcoming of Spring in all its glorious colours and can be the start of a lifetime of Easter decorations to treasure and evoke memories.
If there must be chocolate…
Why not send it in a card?! Okay, so chocolate has snuck in but it doesn’t have to be a giant egg that never actually gets eaten. Subtle chocolate lollies, mini eggs in a card or slices of chocolate pizza are all great alternatives and just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth.
