There’s been a big trend in giving alternative Easter gifts in recent years. Many people have taken the choice to move away from giving chocolate (for a whole host of reasons from allergies to reducing sugar intake) to giving small Easter inspired gifts.
Whilst we’re traditionalists at heart and truly believe that a little treat never hurt anyone, we also understand just what a battle it can be to get your children to lead a healthy lifestyle. And when they’re going to receive so much chocolate from everyone else, a small Easter inspired gift that will keep them occupied during the Easter holidays could be just what you need! Not to mention it will last a lot longer than an Easter egg too!
We’ve compiled a list of our favourite chocolate alternative gifts this Easter, and what’s better there all under £30!
