1. Peppa's Easter Egg Hunt book
If you're looking for an Easter story book for younger readers, look no further! In Peppa's Easter Egg Hunt book (£2.49) Grandpa Pig has set up an Easter egg hunt for Peppa Pig and her friends. Join Peppa, Rebecca Rabbit, and Freddy Fox as they search for eggs and even see baby chicks hatching in the yard.
2. LEGO Painting Easter Eggs
LEGO appeals to boys and girls alike, and the construction toy giants have a special set just for Easter. Once the fun of building is over, little ones can pretend to paint the eggs, drop an egg on the kitchen floor, or collect freshly-laid eggs from the hen in the garden. The Painting Easter Eggs set costs £14.99.
3. Playmobil 5281 Robo Ganster Spy Glider
The Playmobil Robo Gangster Spy Glider (£4.95) is a great choice for children who like to make things. This set comes complete with a colourful 'egg' – and is far more exciting than chocolate!
4. Where's the Easter Bunny?
Where's the Easter Bunny? (£4.99) is the perfect way to give your children the experience of an egg hunt - but without the chocolate. The Easter Bunny has fallen down a magical burrow where he travels through wondrous lands and meets fairy-tale creatures. Will he get back in time to deliver the Easter eggs, or will hungry Foxy spoil everything? With over 500 things to spot, the book is sure to keep your little chicks busy for hours.
5. Easter Egg Earrings
These novelty Easter egg earrings (£6.95) are a great present for young girls who like jewellery (or even big girls!). A great way to give someone chocolate for Easter . . . without the actual chocolate!
6. Yankee Candle Easter giftset
One for older girls and grown-ups. This Yankee Candle Easter giftset (£8.98) comes with three different scented candles (Happy Spring, Jelly Bean and Vanilla Cupcake) as well as a clear candle holder. A lovely smelling and longer-lasting alternative to flowers or chocolate.
