Easter is a joyous time for gift-giving, with a range of options for kids to get them in the Easter spirit and treat them to a memorable present. It’s one of the most wholesome times of the year – there’s no need to splash the cash on a massive gift, but there’s still plenty of scope to buy your child something special!
We’ve compiled this BrightMinds guide on Easter gifts for kids to help you choose the right gift – whether that’s a classic chocolate Easter treat or something a little different and longer-lasting. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find something great for your little one on this list.
What Are the Most Popular Easter Gifts for Kids?
Of course, chocolate is the most common Easter gift – but it’s certainly not the only option!
Another popular gift around Easter time is flowers, and there’s a fantastic floral gift for kids featured in this list. For younger kids, you also can’t go wrong with an Easter-themed activity book or storybook to inject some seasonal joy into storytime.
Educational Toys: The Right Choice All Year Round
Themed gifts are fun, but Easter offers the opportunity for non-themed gift-giving as well. There’s never a wrong time to buy your young one an educational gift – these will retain their value beyond the Easter period, giving your child a valuable outlet to learn whilst they play – on Easter day and beyond.
You can explore a full range of educational gifts at BrightMinds here, but for now and without further ado, let’s get into some of our favourite Easter-themed gifts for kids.
Best-Selling Easter Gifts for Children
Sometimes, going with the flow is a good thing – especially when it comes to buying bestsellers! Here are a couple of the most popular Easter-themed gifts available at BrightMinds.
The Amazing Flower Kit

Melt And Make Your Own Chocolate Lollipops
Next up is a chocolatey delight from Choc on Choc. This Make Your Own Chocolate Lollipops kit does exactly what it says on the tin, giving kids a delightful Easter activity to indulge in with the whole family.
The kit includes everything you need to make the lollipops, with moulds in the shapes of animals and ready-to-melt chocolate to kickstart the process. Ensure there’s an adult on hand to help younger children handle the melted chocolate and watch as they enjoy the process of crafting their own tasty treats.
Other Classic Chocolate Easter Gifts
Beyond our Easter bestsellers, there are dozens of other gifts to choose from, including more chocolatey goodness from Choc On Choc. The Melt and Make Your Own kits also come in a couple of other varieties:
These work the same as the above lollipops, with some variations for your kids to enjoy depending on their preference. The Chocolate Egg Heads in particular are the perfect choice if you’re looking for a traditional Easter gift for your little one.
