5 Of The Best Easter Gifts If You Want To Avoid Chocolate

Easter is a wonderful time of year. However you celebrate the occasion, it’s completely valid to want to steer away from chocolate. Personally, I try to eat well to help myself mentally. Everyone will have their own reason. Or maybe you want to combine your Easter basket with some other gifts, as well as the yummy chocolate treats. Whatever your preference, I have you covered with this gift guide.

I think it’s fitting to start with an Easter table setting. Because this is where the family gathers and often the liveliest place in the house during holiday periods.

Homeware brand Contempee has an array of beautiful gifts for the Easter holiday. Their faux flowers, including hydrangea and cherry blossom, make the perfect centrepiece to a dining table for Easter lunch. Adding that fresh spring feeling to your home.

You can be safe in the knowledge the flowers won’t die and there is no ongoing maintenance. I am really impressed with how lovely they look and they really bring my living room to life. The vase is also really stylish.

Living and Home

Maybe you’re actually looking for a dining table so family you can have family around. So many memories are created during these gatherings and I have an affordable brand to share with you.

Easter Gifts

Having a small dining table in our home has transformed meal times. It’s where we do crafts with the little one. I can do my work overlooking the canal and it’s great when we have guests around. I don’t know what we did before sitting at the table.


This website makes lots of great activities, which can be fun at Easter. With free resources for parents, and schools. Some of these don’t cost anything, so it’s a perfect solution during the cost of living crisis as well.

How about some Mini Egg Brownies as a gift? Or some fun Easter colouring ideas that kids can do and then give to parents and family? What a cute idea. They also have some Easter Egg hunt ideas too. And even an Easter cake – another perfect gift!

If people join the premium site for free, there are even more ideas. This includes a scavenger hunt, as well as an Easter wreath to make as a gift too. The website also gives 51%+ profits to charity and has a free WELLBEING book club.

And Kiddycharts.com has kindly produced an easter colouring sheet, especially for my readers – feel free to download it!

Mr Bubble

Initially offered as an alternative to tapioca in bubble tea drinks, these wonderfully tasty show stoppers have now taken over the dessert space with many alternative uses in ice creams, milkshakes, cocktails, slush drinks and frozen yoghurt.

The beauty of popping boba is the ability to provide a flavour twist without affecting the main flavour of the drink or dessert itself, every bite is a flavour explosion that never disappoints!

I can’t wait to try this amazing bubble tea. I’ve heard great things about it and the set looks fab. Such an exciting thing to make with my toddler and it would be perfect as a gift for Easter, or any occasion.

Easter Gifts

Paper High

Born out of a love of travel, Paper High began as a round-the-world trip. An unexpected change in destination, an extended stay in Kathmandu, and a chance meeting with a paper maker sowed the seed of an exciting business idea.

On this site, you will find many quirky, unique gifts. I find myself browsing through and imagining these unique items dotted around my home.

    These are some great ideas for gifts instead of chocolate at Easter. I think flowers for adults at Easter is a lovely idea. Thank you for sharing your suggestions.

      I’ve had some fresh flowers in the living room over Easter, and they honestly made a difference to the room.

    These are great gift suggestions! I love bubble tea so I’ll definitely have to check out Boba Life! Also, I’ll have to check out Kiddy Charts as my daughter would love the coloring pages!

    A great selection of gifts. Especially Paper High products.

      Thank you – I love how unique Paper High products are.

    My son doesn’t want eggs this year (probably because he never gets through them) so his I’d already bought will likely go to my nephew instead. He won’t get a different gift though, it’s egg or nothing. It’s the symbolism of the egg, not that he’s getting an Easter gift.

      This is great – a child who wants to give the chocolate away. My little one has a sweet tooth, so we are limiting it at the moment.

  6. April 5, 2023 / 2:56 PM

    I like the free resources you mentioned. I am sure any family would enjoy it.

  7. April 5, 2023 / 9:15 PM

    Honestly, chocolate is not always good and some people now avoid it. These are great suggestions. Thank you for sharing!

      I have a love-hate relationship with chocolate – I always want it but its not great for my IBS.
