Egglings by Harmony at Home
Egglings are incredible grow-it-yourself mini gardens, nestled inside an egg. Outwardly appearing as an extra large egg, your little ones will be amazed when after they break its top, they find a mini garden inside, ready to grow! The seeds are already sown into the Eggling’s soil; just use a spoon to tap on its top, water it when required, place in a bright spot, and watch a garden unfurl before your eyes.
Plants continue to grow in the eggling for around five months, after which they can even be replanted in your garden so you can continue to enjoy them. You can choose from several varieties including Wild Strawberries, Lavender or Mint!

Bunny Shortbread Biscuit Box by Shortbread Gift Company
Although still a sweet treat, these delicious hand-made shortbread bunnies are a lovely alternative to chocolate.

They sell out very quickly though so be sure to order soon!
Bunny in a Carrot by Nest
A perfect Easter gift for a newborn or little one to enjoy. Snuggle the beautifully-made soft bunny which comes in cream or brown; with its light and flexible size, bunny can also go wherever you go (or handily be stuffed into a handbag with haste, should the need arise!)

Bath Time Hook a Duck, by Bath Time
Just like everyone’s favourite fairground activity, Bath Time Hook a Duck involves the simplistic yet surprisingly satisfying action of, well, hooking a plastic duck. After floating a few ‘ducks with hooks’ around the bath, just slot the fishing rod together and watch your little ones have a whale of a time catching the four floating quackers. Perfect for bath time fun, this simple concept can provide lots of enjoyment- try and resist having a go yourself!
