Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start filling those Easter baskets. While candy is always a must-have in any Easter basket, the “Easter Bunny” should also include a few non-candy gifts. This will help keep hyperactivity to a minimum, and will also minimize the calories your child consumes. Need something special to tuck into their Easter basket? These cute Easter gifts for kids will definitely be a hit. Our list includes gifts for boys, girls, and teens.
1. Melissa & Doug Plush Burrow Bunny
This cute bunny is 14 inches tall, which would make it the centerpiece of a great Easter basket. The colors are neutral, making this a cute gift for both boys and girls. The fur is very soft, so young kids will find holding this bunny to be very comforting.
The eyes are securely fastened, so they should not pose a choking hazard for very young children. The fur can be cleaned with a damp cloth, so even if your child accidentally gets melted chocolate on this bunny rabbit, the staining shouldn’t be permanent. If you want a cute “Easter bunny” to give as a gift, this is a cuddly, lovable option.
2. LEGO Easter Bunny
This LEGO set lets your child build a rabbit with movable ears, arms and legs. This bunny also comes with a big orange carrot. Giving your child an activity based toy will ensure they stay busy while you take on the task of preparing the family meal, or hiding Easter eggs around the house.
3. Peter Rabbit Naturally Better Classic Gift Set
Peter Rabbit may not be the Easter Bunny, but Easter is a great occasion to introduce some Beatrix Potter books to your kids. The classic stories about Peter Rabbit and his animal friends have been read by generations of kids.
This box set includes The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher, The Tale of Tom Kitten, and The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck. The books themselves are designed with eco-friendly materials, so you can feel good about having them in your home. Each individual volume is on the small side, which makes them perfect for independent readers with small hands.
Price: $15.92 (20 percent off MSRP)
4. Have a Silly Easter! Mad Libs Activity Book
This fun take on the traditional Mad Libs book style is designed to appeal to pre-schoolers and kindergarteners. Each story is accompanied by a coordinating coloring book page. Your child uses stickers to fill in the blanks, which is a nice touch. Since they are using stickers instead of a pen or marker, there’s no risk of them getting ink all over the couch…or their cute new Easter clothes.
Price: $3.61 (40 percent off MSRP)
5. Grooming Products or Makeup
If you have older kids, it can be hard to figure out what to put in their Easter basket. Everyone likes candy, but toys and activity books can seem childish to a teenager or pre-teen. If you need some creative ideas for older kids, we suggest grooming products or makeup. These items can be found for less than $20.
For girls, we recommend the SHANY Glamour Girl makeup kit, pictured above at left. This kit includes two color correcting face powders, 48 eye shadows, four blush options, and five double-sided applicators. This is a great starter kit for a teen or pre-teen who is just learning how to apply makeup. For teens with darker complexions, or teens who want a broader palette of colors to work with, opt for the SHANY Masterpiece collection instead.
For guys, we like the Bee Bald daily skin care regimen, pictured above at right. It’s a great skin conditioning kit for teens who are just starting to shave, and want to avoid further skin irritation. The kit comes with face scrub, shaving lotion, cleanser, post-shave healer, and a smoothing treatment.
