Age Guide: How to Choose the Right Easter Gift for your Child

If you are hosting Easter this year, then you need to prepare gifts and activities for children of all ages. Here are our straight forward guide for choosing Easter eggs according to children’s ages.

Toddler Girls

Easter offerings for little girls should reflect the theme of the season but also include cute cuddly stuffed animal bunnies, the most delicious treats and colorful toys. With most toddlers, you can get away with colorful interactive toys that require lots of gripping and touching. Toddlers toys are usually gender neutral as in only focuses on improving the childs development. We recommend good quality Easter themed toddler toys which can be colorful eggs that are soft to grip or eggs that make sounds and so on.

Boys

Don’t worry about getting a perfect Easter gift for boys and any boy will love sweets and fun Easter themed toys. We love surprise eggs as they can be customized with any toys. There are many surprise egg toys that have little cars, dinosaurs or Pokémons inside so boys would stay engaged in the Easter holiday festivities and be able to collect toys that they love.

3 to 6 Year Old Kids

This is the perfect age when children will start begging for Easter candy and chocolates. Kinder Surprise eggs have children by their string and you are gonna be buying them by the dozen. This is a perfect age to start increasing the difficulty of Easter egg hunt by putting eggs in difficult to find places or making the clues much harder to figure out.

7 to 9 Year Old Kids

It is always going to be a bit of a task finding something for this age group, as they can be a bit tricky to find gifts for.  They need something a bit more complicated that what a younger kid would want, but they are not quite ready for the gifts that teens will want.  All kids still love chocolate, no matter what age they are, so this might be a good place to start.

12 Years Old and Above

Kids that are older than 13 years old are developed humans and have their very specific likes and dislikes, so getting an nice gift becomes more complicated since it has to be very personalized to them.  We recommend you try to find something that is related to their interests or life style.  For example, if your teen is a vegan, yuou can get them a great vegan snack bundle.  Or, if your teen loves zombie films, you can get them a chocolate zombie bunny.
