If you're searching for an alternative to the chocolate egg, or perhaps something in addition to an egg, then look no further. Here are my top Easter inspired gifts for children:
1. LEGO Easter Bunny Toy
Enjoy seasonal fun with the LEGO Easter bunny! Adjust the flapping ears and move the arms and legs. A great gift for children 7 and over at £10.49.
2. Personalised Colour in Easter Poster
This huge personalised poster measures 59.4cm x 129cm and at £14 makes a fantastic craft activity gift for Easter.
3. Early Learning Centre - Egg & Spoon Race
This egg and spoon race is just fantastic for £6.99 and comes personally recommended by me! We bought it for our eldest daughter who is 3 and she loves it, particularly when the egg smashes open on the kitchen floor! A great game to play this Easter.
4. Peppa Pig: Peppa's Easter Egg Hunt
For Peppa fans everywhere, Easter wouldn't be complete with knowing what family pig are up to! £3.99 as a board book.
5. Spot's First Easter Board Book (Spot Lift the Flap)
£4.37 for this firm favourite Spot lift the flap Easter story. Perfect for a baby's first Easter.
6. Personalised Easter Treats Gift
A sweet gift that isn't an egg, this pretty Easter gift is £8.99 and comes complete with personalised hanging decoration and delicious chocolate treats.
7. TOMY Play to Learn Hide 'n' Squeak Eggs
If you're a regular reader of my blog then you may recognise this gift from another guide but I had to re-use it for Easter. My baby and toddler both enjoy this shape sorting and colour matching game, it's an Amazon best seller at £5.25 and is eggsellent!
8. Playmobil 5280 Biker with Chopper
Another Amazon best seller, this is a Playmobil gift egg - cracking alternative to a chocolate egg! This one is £7.93 and comes with a motorbike and rider and the egg can also be used as a money box. There a tons of alternatives available and you can read on to my next gift to see another option...
9. Playmobil 5279 Flower Fairy in the Butterfly Tree
Again this gift egg by Playmobil can also be used as a money box, it comes with a winged fairy and enchanted tree.
10. Treasure Hunt Game
My final gift option might not look like an Easter inspired gift, but stick with me! When the fun of your egg hunt is over, but your children want more then this is a lovely family game to play. It's £19.95, is suitable for ages 3-8 and helps develop Early Years literacy skills. It has a range of difficulty levels, is suitable for indoors and outdoors play and has excellent reviews.
If you still want more, then there's always the option of an egg cup - I selected my favourites for you in this earlier blog post, click here to go straight there.

I always think buying gifts for Mother's Day is harder than for a birthday; there's a little more sentiment behind it. The months and years seem to roll around so quickly these days and each year seems to get a bit harder!
I've actually started a kind of present diary now, I make a note of what I get people (mainly family) so that I can refer back to it; I can also make notes of gift ideas I think of throughout the year. It helps avoid repeating presents too!
With Mothers Day just around the corner, I've put together a list of my favourite gifts for Grandma (or Nanny, Nana, Granny, whichever name you use!).

I don't know about you, but I always feel like a Valentine's gift has to hit the right tone. Somewhere there has to be some kind of meaning or romance to make it worthy of being presented on the day of love!
Well, I've spent hours exploring ideas to fit the bill (and the budget) and assembled my ten favourites here.
