Why not make your Easter gift something a little different this year?
Everybody loves a good chocolate egg, there’s no doubt about that. But if you’re looking for something healthier, non-chocolate Easter gifts that will last, or just a little something special to hide inside your kid’s basket of goodies or to place on the table waiting for your partner to get home, there are definitely other options out there to consider.
Before we dive into our top Easter gift ideas from the likes of jewellery by Thomas Sabo & Nomination, let’s talk a little bit about some of the gifting traditions often associated with this egg-cellent holiday.
Why do we give Easter Gifts?
We learn the history and traditions associated with Easter at a very young age, from its roots in Christianity to the popular Easter Bunny. For many people, the holiday has evolved into a more general celebration of the spring season: a time when the sun starts to shine and flowers start blooming and everything just feels a little bit brighter!
Just like with most widespread celebrations, there is often gift-giving involved. It’s a way to show your love and appreciation to those close to you during a time of happiness, no matter your own personal reasons for participating in the festivities. For many, it’s a way to commemorate a special day of the year and create lasting family traditions and memories.
What are some good non-chocolate Easter gifts in 2022?
In many households, Easter festivities include giving children baskets filled with sweet treats. But over the years, many people have started looking for ways to make their Easter gifts just a little bit more special, and like to include things that will last (rather than a chocolate egg that will probably be gone within an hour!).
It’s also the case that more and more people are seeking out healthier gifts, especially in the case of those looking for non-chocolate Easter gifts for adults, or parents who simply don’t want to deal with the inevitable sugar rush on Easter Sunday.
And what about getting a non-chocolate Easter gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend? Chocolate is often a go-to gift for any occasion, but it’s definitely worth considering something more meaningful and long-lasting, especially if it’s your very first Easter together!
Some unique, alternative and Easter gifts for non-chocolate eaters that are perfect for teens, adults and kids alike could include the following:
- Personalised Easter Mug: You can find plenty of mugs decorated with Easter-y symbols like eggs, chicks and little bunnies at this time of year. But look for one with their name on to add that extra personal touch!
- Grow Your Own Plant Kit: Spring is the season to celebrate the new flowers that are blooming, and these plant kits are a fun and easy way for everyone to get in on the action. In most cases all you need to do is place the pot (pre-filled with seeds and soil) in a sunny spot, keep it watered and watch it grow!
- Mini Bee Hotel: Again in the spirit of spring, embrace nature by gifting someone a cute mini bee house to place in their garden! Many of these double as planters, as well as providing a nesting place for bees.
However, here at Joshua James one of our favourite gift ideas for any occasion is – as you’ve probably guessed – jewellery. With that in mind, we are here to give you some last-minute gift inspiration with our beautiful collection of Thomas Sabo jewellery & our exclusive range of Easter Nomination charms that’ll make for Easter gifts that keep on giving.

When should you give Easter gifts?
Ok, so you’ve got your gifts (or gift baskets!) wrapped and ready with stunning pieces from Thomas Sabo jewellery. However, many people wonder when to give non-chocolate Easter gifts. Easter is spread out over a long weekend, from Good Friday to Easter Monday, but is there a fixed day that you should be giving your gifts out?
In fact, there isn’t any tradition which dictates the best day to give gifts. In the UK, many families will do gift-exchanges on Easter Sunday, as this is the most popular day for other Easter festivities like egg hunting and gathering together as a family. But if a different day suits your schedule better, there’s nothing wrong with that! You could even spread the gift-giving and other celebrations across the entire long weekend if you wanted.
If you’re posting your non-chocolate Easter gift this year, you may want to drop a message or a call to the recipient and make sure they know not to open it until the weekend! If you’re looking to buy a special piece of Thomas Sabo jewellery or a lovely charm from us, we have a next-day delivery option at check out that’ll give you peace of mind.
