Easter Gifts for Little Ones that are Chocolate Free but just as Sweet!

19th Jul 2020

Easter Gifts for little ones don't always have to come wrapped in tin foil and plastic, not to mention filled with sugar! If you've been following us for a while now, you'll no doubt be aware that this year I've been trying to make as many small changes as possible to be as eco friendly as possible and with Easter only a matter of weeks away, I've already been contemplating the alternatives to the usual collection of Easter eggs, that while delicious, do result in leftover cardboard and plastic that needs to be dealt with afterwards.

This year, I'm thinking about creating my own chocolate eggs, something that can be stored in a reusable container. Or, perhaps instead of eggs, we could enjoy some baked treats? A lovely colourful cake or perhaps some more of the gluten free Easter Bunny Cupcakes that Mum made with Tilly last year, they were delicious!

But what about gifts? We've added some beautiful new items to the Sparks and Daughters Easter Collection this year, with some completely new designs for both babies and children, that make a wonderful alternative to sweet treats or even the kind of toy that would only end up in the back of the toy cupboard before Spring is even over. Here are some of my favourites.

Rabbits have always been one of my most favourite animals to paint and when the time came to create a new design for our new cross-body baby bodysuit, I knew I had to paint something especially cute, to compliment the style of it. This sleepy little bunny surrounded by a wreath of Spring flowers makes an adorable Easter outfit for any newborn baby boy or girl.

Another brand new baby item, our Embroidered Baby Bunny Onesie is super soft to the touch, making it perfect for baby snuggles and with a bunny face on the hood, a pair of adorable ears and even a fluffy tail, it is a wonderful outfit for any Spring baby! The onesie is also personalised with baby's name and a super cute bunny ears motif.

As little ones grow older, they may want Easter Gifts made with a little more fun in mind. Our Easter Portrait Children's T-shirt allows you to personalise the design with both their name and their likeness. Why not add a fun pair of Bunny ears too? It makes a great outfit for Easter Sunday or Egg Hunt!

It wouldn't be a Sparks and Daughters celebration without a new Baby Milestone Blanket design. Launched alongside our new Floral Blanket and Rainbow Blanket, the Bunny Rabbit Blanket is one of our first full, colour printed designs, with an arch of beautiful watercolour bunnies to celebrate baby's milestones. It makes a wonderful gift for a newborn baby born in the Springtime.

Lastly, our super soft and adorably cute stuffed toy bunny is decorated with a completely personalised Easter greeting for your little one, in fresh, seasonal colours. There's no doubt it would look simply gorgeous in any Springtime nursery and this beautiful bunny complies with EN71 European Toy Safety regulations and is suitable from birth, making it a gift suitable for a child of any age.

So those are my favourite alternative Easter Gifts for little ones this year in the Sparks and Daughters Easter collection. Don't forget, there's plenty of other gifts available there too, so make sure to take a look at everything over at to find the perfect personalised gift for your loved one.
