    What can I send my grandchildren for Easter?

    Ordering Easter gifts online this year is the safest way to shop during the pandemic. If you’re worried that Easter eggs will smash, melt or expire before they arrive, then its a great idea to send one of the non-chocolate Easter gifts listed above. Each of the Easter gifts for kids we’ve listed are more durable than a chocolate egg – but no less enjoyable.

    Easter craft-based gifts are a great present to give. We recommend a DIY Easter bonnet gift set or perhaps a paint your own Egg cups kit. Sending kids things to do is always a great idea because they allow the grandchildren to get creative whilst also giving mum and dad some time off. Who knows, they might even send their finished craft to you or show off their creations for you on your next family zoom call!

    Shops like Not on the High Street and Etsy also have an abundance of Easter gifts for kids that can be specially personalised too. The gold bunny necklace or personalised children’s Easter story book are both gorgeous sentimental presents that will make a perfect keepsake for the grandkids.

    What to consider before buying Easter gifts for kids online

    When buying Easter gifts for kids online make sure you check the site’s delivery and returns policy.

    Most common delivery options include Standard or Next Day Delivery which will include an additional cost. So make sure you factor delivery charges into your gift buying budget.

    If you’ve been organised and bought your present in plenty of time, then Standard delivery will be the cheaper option. Standard is usually 3-5 business days (but bear in mind that this does not include weekends or Bank holidays). Of course, Next Day delivery is speedier but will charge a higher fee.

    It’s good to know that some sites offer Free Standard delivery when you spend over a certain amount. For example, if you spend over £20 on purchases at Amazon, you will receive free standard delivery.

    You should also consult a site’s Returns Policy before check out. Returns periods vary from 14-30 days. At present, most brands are only offering returns by post rather than in store – so be sure to keep all packaging until you’re sure the present is a hit.

    It’s also worth noting that sale items may have a different return time, whilst some personalised gifts might be exchange only or not eligible to return. If in doubt check the site’s return policy page or contact their customer service for clarification.

    Finally, we’d also advise you to keep a note of your order number after completing your purchase. This way if your Easter gift is delayed or goes missing, you will be able to quote the number and chase it’s status with the company’s customer help team.
