The Easter bunny is just around the corner and for all of you that aren't super organised (hands up?) we have put together a list of our favourite feel good (choccy-free) Easter gift ideas.
Let's face it - even if you don't get your kids a single easter egg this year it's likely that Grandma will have the sugar induced meltdown covered.
So why not share some Easter love with something that will not only last a little longer than breakfast time but will support a small, ethical Australian business along the way.
These GOTS certified organic, 100% Australian-made PJ's have us totally ready for cold winter night snuggles with freshly bathed babes. Inspired by the outback night, the hand illustrated fabric features thoughtful outback inspired designs and comes in three beautiful, unisex colours. The one pictured above is 'Tanami Sands' a rich, rusty red, there's also the dusty pink 'Desert Blush' and the deep blue 'Twilight'.
We love Gather and Moss for everything they stand for - small batch, slow threads that are completely made from design to the very last stitch right here in Australia.
It's not really a gift guide without a little bit of self-promotion right? So here are our 100% plant based eco-crayons. The perfect little Easter gift for the babes that are still a bit too young to be eating a heap of chocolate - well, the ones that are too young to know what they are missing out on anyway.
Each colour pigment is derived from plants, seeds and flowers and is free from all the nasties that can be found in traditional crayon products. Go find out more about them here.
Land of Rhi create some of the most beautiful and original products out there in the Australian-made wooden toy scene! Including this whimsy little bunny pocket puzzle. Isn't it cute!?
Their range of pocket puzzles have been created to aid in the development of problem solving and fine motor skills, all in a compact (and beautiful) form.
Each puzzle is constructed from Australian pine and finish with a genuine original watercolour artwork and sealed with an organic wood balm.
These little finger puppet bunnies are ready for big imaginations. We can see them being used for story time, puppeteering shows and small world play. Unlike other finger puppets these guys can stand up all by themselves so look super cute on a shelf when not being played with.
OK one more from us - the most practical gift we could think of. The Kiddikutter kid safe knife. Now, although some people think practical gifts are b-Oring, we bet you that your Little Big is going to be stoked with their very own finger safe knife!
These knives can actually cut through a carrot but can NOT cut through fingers. We still don't have any idea how this works but if you don't believe us, go check out our saved Instagram Storie Highlight under 'Other Things'. You'll see Stephanie trying to hack through her own arm. Spoiler alert, there's no blood.
Getting the kids involved in mealtime prep has so many benefits, and with this kid safe knife they will be chopping in finger-safe style. Find out more about Kiddikutters here.
Lastly but certainly not least is this gorgeous Easter themed wooden memory game. Each disc has been printed with a vintage style original illustration by 'Creating Monkies Gifts'.
This chocolate free gift is not only educational, it is also fun for your little ones - take it in the car or travelling to keep their little minds and hands busy! There are 20 disks in the set (2 of each of the 10 designs) and each set comes with a handy little calico bag to store them in.
