Alternative Easter Gift Ideas

Most Easter gifts tend to be of the chocolate variety but what if you or your child can't eat chocolate for one reason or another? or what if you think they have / get enough from friends and family and you want to treat them to something different? If you find yourself in this predicament and stuck for ideas take a look at the gift ideas below for some inspiration.


My Blue Nose Friends


There are over 100 My Blue Nose Friends to collect and this Easter there are four new characters available. Diva the Canary, Dash the Cheetah, Eduardo the Axolotl and Frizzie the Lamb make the perfect alternative gift to chocolate. Each character has an RRP of £5 each. These adorable  are available from Sainsburys, Hamleys, Rymans, Toys R Us, Tesco (selected stores), Amazon, Clintons, WH Smiths and Independent Retailers.



Aqua Dragons



The brand new Aqua Dragons Jurassic Time Travel EGGspress Set (RRP £10) from Brainstorm Ltd is the ultimate alternative Easter Gift. The cool egg-shaped tank is home to your child’s Aqua Dragons. Aqua Dragons are prehistoric aquatic creatures that have lived on Earth for millions of years and even shared the world with dinosaurs. Each Jurassic kit contains eggs that hatch into real live aquatic creatures. You simply need to add water and they will hatch in just 2-3 days. They can grow to up to 2cm long. Children of all ages will love the cool egg-shaped aquarium. The Jurassic themed habitat includes a cracked-egg tank, eggs to hatch your dragons, food, feeding spoon and instructions.
