Easter without the Sugar High: 20 Non Chocolate Easter Gift Ideas

As Easter approaches, the excitement of the traditional Easter Egg Hunt fills the air!

While chocolate bunnies and sugary treats are often part of this holiday, many of us are increasingly seeking alternatives to the traditional sugar rush that comes with Easter festivities, especially for young children.

If you have young kids who haven't discovered chocolate/lollies yet (and you're trying to hold off as long as you can!) Or you have kids with allergies and need some ideas for Easter egg hunting that don't involve chocolate and sweets? 

We've put together this list of amazing non-chocolate Easter gift ideas, with all the products included from Australian small businesses. So, you can put together your Easter gifts without the chocolate and support Aussie small business too!
