Easter doesn’t just have to be chocolate, and it’s not just for kids!
Yes traditionally we overeat on chocolate, some give up things for lent, and kids have a lot of fun, but adults can too.
My family have always loved a mixture of chocolate and gifts that can be kept and used.
As a teen I loved getting a new CD or computer game alongside a Crème Egg, so I want to keep up our tradition.
If you prefer gifts of the non-sugar variety, or want to make it more interesting this year, here’s some great gifts I’ve found online so far:
Gifts for the Home
If your loved one is a fan of eco-friendly gifts, FOOGO Green are for you!
FOOGO Green believe in bringing environmentally sustainable products to everyone.
They offer a range of products that are a great alternative to plastic disposables for picnics, barbecues and parties.
The products are made from palm leaf found in Asia and they degrade naturally, going back to where they came from rather than in landfill.
Not only are they kind to the environment, but they’re also stylish with a natural wood finish.
There’s a variety of shapes and sizes for plates and bowls, wheat straws that don’t disintegrate into your drink and also bamboo ones that are reusable.
Village Wax Melts
I love scented candles and wax melts, as they make the house smell gorgeous and are soothing to watch in the evenings when I have downtime.
Village Wax Melts offer a great range of wax melts and warmers, as well as other gift options including bath bombs and soap sponges.
I have their Silver Crackle Glass Burner and a range of their wax melts in Lime Basil Mandarin, Japanese Cherry Blossom and Diamonds.
The melts make my living room smell so good while I’m relaxing and watching TV, it’s the ultimate self care!
They also offer a great range of exfoliating soap sponges, bath bombs, reed diffusers, candles and gift sets so there’s definitely something there that would make a great Easter gift.
This last year has left a lot of adults feeling unfit as we’ve not been able to get out much.
If there’s anyone in your life trying to be more active, Pursue Fitness do a great activewear collection.
I’ve recently got two pairs of their sustainable seamless leggings from their women’s range and they’re gorgeous.
They are made from 92% recycled fabrics, which is great if you feel strongly in sustainable, environmentally-friendly living.
The leggings are a high waisted fit with squat-proof fabric and a ribbed waistband.
There are three colour options: Black, Blue and Sage Green, and all three have a unique oil patterned jacquard design.
I find them to be supportive, comfortable and really well made, meaning they will last when I finally get back to working out!
It’s a soft, durable scarf which is perfect for the Spring and Summer months.
The grey graphical print makes for smooth pairing with a wide variety of outfits.
It’s lightweight and durable and this scarf is a Danish design for Bohemian Revolt.

Boredom Bags was set up by Sheffield-based parents of three in response to their own experience of parenting in a pandemic.
They’ve just launched their 2nd edition bag in time for some Easter holiday fun!
Boredom Bags are bags against boredom providing a boost of fun, varied and creatively inspiring activities for children aged 2-100!

The bags can be posted to any UK address either for your own family or as a gift to family or friends.
It’s an eco-aware business inspired and fuelled by the #reducereuserecycle movement reimagining and repurposing donated materials as packaging solutions and as as essential ingredients of the activities themselves.
Geomag have another great set, called Geomag Supercolor, which is made from 100% recycled plastic.
Kids can play with magnets and let creativity and imagination take over.
Thanks to the simple Geomag elements and the magic of magnetism, you can build endless 3D constructions with creativity and imagination.
The elongated magnetic rods, steel balls and the various panel shapes make up the building system, which stimulates play and learning.

Now we’re in Spring, gifts to use outdoors are perfect to encourage kids to play outside.
Huckleberry Chalk Markers let kids get creative with these in their gardens. They are bright and colourful chalk pens that can be used and removed on a range of surfaces.
They’re safe for people, pets, the environment, and are dust-free.
Thankfully they are easy to clean, by simply wiping off with a damp cloth, and are great for kids of any age.

Simply attach the motor to the boat and place it in the water.

Bell Darts from Huckleberry are an exciting new game that can be played anywhere by anyone!
Throw safe magnetic darts at the bell and try to get a bullseye.
If you get the bell to chime first, you win.
The bell’s made out of steel while the darts are made out of a combination of nylon, aluminium, and MDF.
The darts and bell are magnetized, with no sharp edges or points.
This game is fun for children and adults of all ages.
The Popcorn Maker is great if your family enjoy camping.
Nothing says good times like a fresh-popped bowl of popcorn around the fire.
All you need is a campfire or fireplace to get the oil sizzling and the kernels popping.
Not only is the result oh-so-tasty, but seeing the popcorn pop before your very eyes is great fun for kids.
The Huckleberry Bug Box is the perfect gift for insect-loving kids.
If your child likes bringing new and interesting creatures into the house there’s now a place to store it.
The Box features seven compartments with 3 different sized spaces, each with magnifiers to make your find look larger than life.
Whether they collect bugs, seeds, leaves, or interesting flowers, the Bug Box is the ideal nesting place for their special find.

For those who are sick of chocolate and want something different, Eh-Co have a great range of chilli oils and pastes.
Eh-Co have brought a 20-year old original family kitchen chilli oil recipe to the market for all to enjoy.
There is always something new that can be discovered by mixing various chilli, herbs and oils.
Their chilli products are made with Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed oil which is sustainably grown in the UK, Habanero & Carolina Reaper Chillies.
They’re suitable for vegans and contain no additives, preservatives or artificial colouring.
Doisy & Dam Easter Eggs
I couldn’t not include any eggs could I?!
These are a bit different though, as Doisy & Dam specialise in vegan chocolate.
The eggs are 70% dark chocolate and nut butter and come with two packets of creamy almond butter and dark chocolate nuttercups.
As well as large eggs, they sell Dark Chocolate Good Eggs which are bags of mini dark chocolate eggs in a sweet, crunchy shell.
Their products are Vegan Society certified and are palm-free, using only natural ingredients.
Some of these products were sent to review for the purpose of this post. No payment was received and all opinions are honest and my own.
