Easy Easter


Today may be St. Patty’s Day, but I’m already looking ahead to the next gift-giving occasion on our calendars: Easter. Today I’m featuring a bunch of groovy gift ideas for everyone expecting a visit from the Easter Bunny in a couple of weeks, including plenty of kid-friendly toy picks from Hasbro. Easter to me is a cool way to balance some sweet treats with a little something your young uns’ have been clamouring for for awhile – these cool toys featured throughout this post are a great, affordable way to spruce up the Easter basket (and cut back on the sugar).

Marvel Titan Hero

Marvel Avengers Titan Hero Series Action Figures – $12.99 each
Marvel fever is upon us once again, with a new Captain America flick en route in early April. If the kids are already fired up, encourage active play with one of these cool full-size action figures (for reference’s sake, they’re about as big as Barbie). They’re super well priced, making them a snap to pick up for all your Avengers-loving grandkids or children.

Ceramic Bunny Pedestal

Ceramic Bunny Pedestal 3-Wick Holder – $19.50 @ Bath & Body Works
Celebrate spring by infusing the air with a delicious-smelling candle – and make it extra festive by housing it on a cute, subtle callout to Easter. This crisp white ceramic candle holder is a little bit whimsical and a perfect addition to your wife or daughter’s Easter basket. Finish it off by including a 3-wick candle in her favourite fragrance.

My LIttle Pony Easter 2016

My Little Pony Equestria Girls Mini Characters – $8.99 each + My Little Pony Explore Equestria Swan Boat – $26.99
I don’t know what it is, but My Little Pony totally feels like an Easter-appropriate gift. Maybe it’s the cheerful colours or the fantasy, outdoorsy vibe of today’s My Little Pony brand, whatever the case may be, there’s no better time to introduce the little ones to this hot brand and its fantastical world of Equestria. You can nab some fun characters for them to play with at the same price you’d spend on a stocking stuffer, or opt for this super covetable Swan Boat, which is the transportation of method of choice in your kids’ magical kingdom.

 

Psycho Bunny

All Over Bunny Socks – $30 each @ Psycho Bunny
Looking for a fun gift for someone that’s too ‘cool’ for Easter? These tongue-in-cheek bunny skull and crossbones socks are an ace pick for your hubby or teenager alike. Available in a trio of colourful combos, it’s a funny bunny way to say Happy Easter.

Lush Funky Bunny

Lush Funky Bunny Gift – $44.95
Shopping for a picky teen? Skip the sweets and gift them a cool gift set of their favourite bath products. This cute collection features some returning Easter faves and new goodies from Lush, like their Bunch of Carrots, a three-in-one collection of bubble bars that can be swirled about the tub to create an Easter Egg-like kaleidoscope of colours.

 

Dohvinci Platinum Styler Kit

DohVinci Platinum Styler Suite – $20.99
Have a budding artist in the household? This tween-friendly gift set is basically a cool way to tap into the power of handheld 3D printing. It’s simple: just load the Styler with a Deco Pop colour and craft your choice of shapes and designs using the included twist-on specialty tips. Then finish things up with sculpting tools, texture tools, and adjustment tools to stamp, carve, and design your one of a kind creative creation!

Enchanted Egg Tin

Enchanted Egg Tin – $21 @ Purdys
Of course, Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a sweet treat to nibble on. Purdys has plenty of sugary options to satisfy your sweet tooth, but this cool collection will make you an instant hit with the hostess or with your grandkids. Loaded with dozens of some of Purdys best-selling milk and dark chocolates, the tin can also be re-used for future Easter celebrations (and treat stashes).
