10 Easter Present Ideas Beyond Chocolate: Unique Gifts to Celebrate Springtime!

Posted by Natalie Dawson on

As Easter approaches everyone normally turns to the talk of chocolate eggs, bunnies, and sweet treats. While these gifts are lovely (we never say no to chocolate!) there are plenty of alternative options for those seeking something a little different this year. I’m Natalie, founder of Awesome Botanical – your go to handcrafted spa product creator from the North East of England. I help busy women find that moment of calm and self care amidst all the chaos – and I know first hand how difficult it can be finding thoughtful or fun gifts. So, whether you're looking for a gift that lasts longer than a sugar rush or something that appeals to a different aspect of the Easter celebration, here are some fantastic ideas to consider:

1. Springtime Plants and Flowers:

Embrace the spirit of renewal and growth with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers or a potted plant. Daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths are all classic choices that symbolise the arrival of spring and the promise of warmer days ahead. Not only do they brighten up any home, but they also serve as a lasting reminder of the season's beauty. 

2. Personalised Easter Decorations:

Add a personal touch to your loved one's Easter celebrations with customised decorations. Consider personalised Easter eggs, bunting, or even a decorative wreath for their front door. These thoughtful gifts not only make the recipient feel special but also add a unique flair to their Easter festivities and can be used year after year making them more sustainable than some of the disposal decorations that are sold by mass producers.

3. Spring-Themed Books:

For your loved ones this year why not encourage a love of reading with a selection of spring-themed books?  Whether it's a beautifully illustrated children's book about Easter traditions or a gardening guide for green-fingered friends, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Choose titles that celebrate the season's themes of renewal, growth, and new beginnings. For the garden lovers, don’t forget to think about helping to care for those green fingers – my Gardeners hand balm makes a brilliant gift with a wonderful spring summer scent too. 



4. Art and Craft Kits:

Inspire creativity with art and craft kits that provide hours of entertainment. From painting sets to DIY Easter bonnet kits, there's no shortage of options to suit all ages and interests. These gifts really  encourage artistic expression and also provide a fun way to spend time together as a family. I cant wait for my little one to be big enough for us to enjoy Easter craft time together!

5. Gourmet Food Hampers:

Treat your loved ones to a gourmet food hamper filled with delicious treats. Instead of chocolate, opt for artisanal cheeses, gourmet crackers, preserves, and other gourmet delights. Pair it with a bottle of fine wine or champagne for an extra touch of luxury. There are some wonderful farm shops that will create bespoke hampers in your local area. I am so passionate about supporting independent artisan businesses – it makes such a difference to the local economy and you get such a personalised experience!


6. Outdoor Adventure Gear:

With the arrival of spring, many people are eager to spend more time outdoors. Consider gifting items such as gardening tools, bird feeders, or picnic sets to encourage outdoor adventures. For the more adventurous, why not arrange a day out hiking, cycling, or exploring nature reserves together? For those that love getting out and about they might also love one of my foot care pamper sets as a lush treat for Easter – they have everything you need to help those weary walking feet!

7. Sustainable Gifts:

Something that is becoming more and more important is thinking about our environmental impact. You can show your commitment to the planet by choosing sustainable gifts that promote eco-friendly living. Choose from reusable shopping bags, stainless steel water bottles, or beeswax wraps for a practical and planet-friendly present. These gifts not only reduce waste but also encourage sustainable habits that can last long beyond Easter.


8. Spa and Pampering Treats:

Give the gift of relaxation with a luxurious home spa pampering kit. Treat your loved ones to a gorgeous scented whipped soap, bath dust, or one of our amazing body butter. After the hustle and bustle of Easter festivities, they'll appreciate the opportunity to unwind and recharge.

9. Handmade Crafts:

Support other local artisans and craftsmen by gifting handmade goods. Whether it's pottery, jewellery, or textiles, there's something special about receiving a one-of-a-kind item made with care and attention to detail. These unique gifts not only showcase talent and craftsmanship but also add a personal touch to the Easter celebrations. 

10. Experiential Gifts:

A great idea would be to create lasting memories with experiential gifts that go beyond material possessions. Consider tickets to a theatre show, a cooking class, or an open top bus ride for an unforgettable Easter surprise. These gifts provide the opportunity to try something new and create shared experiences that will be cherished for years to come.
