Easter Present Ideas: 11 of the Best Easter Gifts for Kids 2023

I don’t know about you but I actually love shopping for Easter. By now I’m over the trauma of Christmas and love giving my little ones a little gift at the end of their first school term.

What’s great about Easter gifts for kids is that they aren’t going to cost the earth, plus there are some REALLY cute Easter present ideas out there including hampers, chocolates, toys and craft kits.

Tips and tricks when Easter shopping

KEEP IT SIMPLE: There’s no need to go overboard with Easter gifts – just something small to pair with their Easter egg hunt in the morning will be plenty! Our Easter gifts range from under $10 to under $120, perfect for every budget.

KEEP IT SIMILAR: If you’re buying for more than one child, try to keep gifts either the same or on par to avoid fighting. Another great tip to keep things fair during the Easter Egg hunt is to allocate a different colour of plastic egg to each child. See how it’s done here (and thank us later!).

TOY, CRAFT, KEEPSAKE, EASTER BOOK or CHOCOLATE: Or how about a selection of a few? If you’re going for chocolate-free Easter presents, we have several to choose from but our top picks for Easter present ideas this year also include a few sweet treats as well.

Check out a few of our favourite Easter present ideas of 2023. Give them their basket of goodies in the morning or hide it as part of the hunt. However you choose, these gifts are sure to bring out the eggcitement in everyone!

Throw Throw Burrito lets you chuck burritos at your kids. No jokes. So clear away some space or head to the backyard and prepare to launch squishy burritos at each other.

It’s the perfect Easter activity, especially for those hard-to-please teens and tweens who will probably want to spend the majority of their Easter on their phones. Put the phones down and throw burritos at me! While we have this game pegged as a top gift for tweens and teens for Easter but in reality, everyone will love it! It comes from the hilarious masterminds at Exploding Kittens who have a whole list of award-winning party games to their names.

The game is both a card game and a game of dodgeball – the first of its kind and is ideal for picnics, camping and any gathering. Introduce them to the game at Easter and it will become a tradition at every family event.
