5 last-minute (non-chocolate) Easter gifts for your baby or toddler

Share it

There’s a good reason why kids (well, and adults) love celebrating Easter: chocolate!

But for many parents whose babies are too young for chocolate, or those who want to give something other than just a sweet treat, it can be hard to think of a substitute. 

If you’ve left buying an Easter gift to the last minute, here are a few ideas that your child will love.

1. Jellycat bunny

When parents in Tell Me Baby’s Facebook group “Aussie mums due 2022/21/22” were chatting about non-chocolate Easter presents, lots said they were getting their little ones a Jellycat bunny.

Thankfully, these can be snapped up through The Iconic and shipped super fast. At the time of writing this article, David Jones also has 20% off the Jellycat range.


As well as chocolate, Easter usually brings some cooler weather, so why not find some very cute bunny-themed pyjamas to gift your little one.

Most of the major stores have lots of Easter-themed PJs, including Target, Best & Less, Big W and Cotton On.

3. Easter-themed books

You can never have too many books, and Target and Big W have lots to choose from. 

4. Chocolate custard

Some mums in our Facebook group said they are getting their baby a card to keep and remember their first Easter. Etsy has some very cute personalised first Easter cards – look for a printable version, as it’s probably too late to order. Otherwise, your local newsagent will have lots to choose from.
