Children's Easter Gifts
Easter is another magical time of year for kids. Although they learn about the original meaning of Easter and its importance to Christians, there is also the modern day celebration. This involves the Easter Bunny and all things 'eggy' - Easter egg hunts, painting and rolling eggs, as well as eating chocolate eggs. I think my younger son enjoys Easter even more than Christmas as he is a complete chocoholic and loves a good treasure hunt. The origin of the Easter Bunny is thought to have been in the 19th Century. Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter baby "kittens", so they became a symbol of new life. Legend has it that the Easter Bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life. (Source: BBC Newsround)
Easter During The Coronavirus Pandemic
Easter 2020 and 2021 have been a difficult time for everyone due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Events and trips have been cancelled for 2 years running now, as well as any family get togethers. Friend and families look to other ways to show their loved ones they care and online gifting has been a big part of that. Prior to Covid 19 we also delivered Easter Gifts for families who may be separated by distance or their jobs. The pandemic meant we have been able to help ever more people to stay connected. Our aim for this Spring was to try and recreate a little bit of that childhood magic through our Children's Easter Gifts.
Traditionally we would always give a chocolate egg as an Easter gift to a child. Chocolate manufacturers are able to ship out individual eggs for delivery, but at BasketsGalore we offer a whole Easter Gift Basket. We bring together Easter eggs, chocolate lollipops, sweeties, crafts and cuddly toys to create the best Children's Easter Gifts around. Just imagine their delight when the Easter Bunny or Granny & Grandad arrange to have a huge basket of goodies delivered to their door, just for them to unwrap, discover and enjoy all the delights inside.
Children's Easter Gifts - Younger Kids
Rather than offering a generic kids Easter Basket we also tailor them slightly depending on age and the number of siblings there are. For example our Easter Basket For Younger Child, for kids aged 2-6 years old. Rather than offering a sugar overload we have combined the quintessential Cadbury's Easter Egg and Lindt Chocolate Bunnies with sugar free jelly sweeties, that are healthy yet delicious. The kids won't even realise there is no sugar involved. To keep their little minds active and curious we have also included an educational game by Orchard Toys as well as a colourful reading book. The Easter Basket is completed with the addition of a cuddly spring time friend by Keel Toys.
Children's Easter Gifts - Older Kids
Next up we have our Easter Boy Gift and Easter Girl Gift, suitable for ages 5+. Again to avoid a sugar high, we have divided the contents up into edibles and enjoyables. The traditional Easter egg features again as a firm favourite. Did you know that Cadbury Creme Egg is the most popular and over 500 million Creme Eggs are made every year with about two thirds of that number being enjoyed in the UK? (Source: Cadbury World UK) Also inside this gift are some chocolate ballers, 2 x lollipops (1 x fruit and 1 x chocolate) and delicious melt in the mouth marshmallows. This time we have gone down the crafty route with a mould and paint set and glider to play with. The cute spring time friend is a Bunny by Keel Toys. Although pictured with a cute Easter balloon, unfortunately we could not get stock of them on time and the decision was made to replace it with another Easter Egg or Lindt chocolate bunny hutch.
Children's Easter Gifts - Multiple Kids
Last but by no means least is our "Easter Bunny" Gift Basket range. Always the most popular of our Children's Easter Gifts, as it is available for an individual child, for 2 children or for 3 children. This makes it more cost effective than having to select 3 individual baskets for 3 siblings etc. This cuddly Easter Bunny is joined by a host of sweet treats including a Cadbury's Easter egg, a strip of mini Lindt Gold Bunnies, marshmallows, lollies and jelly worms. And you guessed it, in the Easter Bunny Basket for 2 Children everything is doubled up, apart from the basket itself. Again for Easter 2021 the Easter Balloons were unavailable and so this was substituted with another Easter treat to make up for it.
In summary, you should find Children's Easter Gifts to both delight and excite your little ones this Easter. I can't imagine anything more exciting as a child than receiving surprise package in the post, full of all my favourite things. Children have missed out on some many experiences over the last year and we are just so happy to help spread a little joy during these difficult times. Hopefully by Easter 2022 everyone will be full of the joys of Spring as we leave the pandemic behind us for good.
