Easter is nearly here and for most that means binge eating Easter eggs for an entire weekend. But for many that just isn’t possible, either due to allergies, lifestyle choices or illness or simply because they do not like chocolate. So what do you get someone who doesn’t want an Easter egg? Well, here is my round up of dairy free Easter gifts for children of all ages.
Dairy Free Chocolate
Of course just because a person is dairy free it doesn’t mean they can’t binge eat all the eggs as long as those eggs are dairy free they are good to go. A brand that I have worked with before and whose Rocky Road bars are incredible have brought out a new dairy free, vegan friendly, Easter range. Mummymeagz have some delicious options to choose from including
The more traditional Smoove Moove egg, a mix of dairy free ilk and dark chocolate.
The Sunnycomb Bar – a dairy free chocolate covered honeycomb bar.
The Chuckie egg – a vegan twist on the classic cream egg.
If you don’t want to buy them chocolate eggs but still want to stay with the tradition of eggs at Easter then how about these beautiful egg cups. They are from Juul At Home and come in a set of two, a forest owl and a hedgehog. They have been hand painted and are perfect for nature lovers of any age and will be sure to put a smile on their face every time they enjoy their eggs.
For a non edible but fun gift how about the Chalk-It (Hair Colouring Chalk) set? They come in a set of 4 colours
These are easy to use, look great and wash out instantly with water. Your children (and maybe the adults too) will have lots of fun creating cool and colourful hairstyles with these over the Easter holidays.
For the more active children how abut the Air-ball by Buzz retail? It is a floating ball that can be played on almost any surface: wooden floor, laminate, marble or even a thin carpet. It creates an air bubble underneath it so it’s actually hovering over the ground and is sure to have the children out of their seats and off the screens in no time.
Remote control spaceship
Some parents treat their children to a main Easter gift, something bit more than a chocolate egg and let’s be honest if children have ever deserved to be treated then it’s right now after the year they’ve had. If this is something that you do then let me show you the Thunder Jet X. The Thunder Jet X is a remote control plane made f foam that is capable of flying up vertically. It has a 2.4 GHz remote control that gives a very long control range and it is suitable for use both indoors and out. The Thunder Jet X has 3 different speeds: low, medium and high, as well as the ability to make a 360 degrees flip in the air. If you are looking for something a little bit extra this Easter then this is it.
If you are buying a gift for a pre-schooler then I urge you to check out the Dantoy range as they have some lovely items. One of my favourites is this cute ice cream stand that comes with 3 ice creams with detachable cones in a stand, a scoop and two cupcakes. All the Dantoy toys are plastic free and made from 90% sugarcane and is 100% recyclable. They are perfect for the eco-friendly amongst us as well as those looking for dairy free Easter gifts.
Educational toys are always a good idea. I particularly like this design and drill STEM garden set. It is suitable for those aged 3 plus and comes with a working power drill that can be used to build pretty flowers. This toy encourages spatial perception, fine motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination all whilst having fun and building their own garden.
