    Default Good non-chocolate Easter gifts for babies & toddlers

    Sorry if someone's done this thread already, but can anyone suggest any Easter gifts for babies and toddlers that aren't chocolate?

    Are there any good Easter-themed books for little ones? (And while I'm certainly not averse to my kids learning the Christian significance of Easter, I'm going to hold off on telling my 3yo the grisly truth of what happened to Jesus, whom she only really learned about this past Christmas and whom she likes to think of as a sweet little baby, until she's a bit older - she'd be devastated! - so at this age I'm just thinking of Easter bunnies and baby chickens etc)

    TIA

    There are plenty of books that include bunnies like Guess How Much I Love You.

    I saw some cute Easter books in the Kmart catalogue yesterday. Also I went to Target yesterday and bought my girls some non-chocolate presents such as a toy bunny each, cute Easter Bunny sunglasses with the bunny ears attached and an Easter bunny that lights up with an LED light when you switch it on. While they are all gimmicky type things, they are fairly inexpensive and I'd prefer to add in a few things like this than more chocolate, they will get so much of that anyway.

    My DD who is 2 will be getting a peppa pig lunch box and drink bottle with some Easter eggs inside it. I have no idea what to get for my 4 year old or my baby... So I'm going to keep checking here for some ideas

    There are heaps of Easter board books. I picked up a Peppa Pig one and a Peter rabbit one for my DD in a book shop

    There's a bit of a tradition in my family to give winter pajamas which I think is great

    What I don't like is people giving us fluffy bunny soft toys. They never get played with and I feel so guilty getting rid of them! But I always do.

    we do new PJ's every year...the easter bunny wants them to be snug and warm in winter.

    they always get a easter type book

    they get some form of craft

    they get 1or 2 small easter eggs (dairy free)

    and...we always go to some kind of show...normally a non animal circus

    We like to make the emphasis on family time and not chocolate!
