Easter Chocolate Alternative

Easter Chocolate Alternatives for Your Children (Fur Babies included)

I feel slightly overwhelmed by the amount of chocolate on our shelves. Tempting our toddlers into using their pester power by melting down into a supermarket tantrum. A few years’ ago the Easter Bunny started a different tradition in our home. The Easter Bunny would leave small gifts hidden throughout the house for my children to find and unwrap. It is a twist on the traditional Easter Hunt. One of the gifts would be an Easter Egg, but the others would be items they could use. They love it! It helps avoid sugar highs the size of skyscrapers. Particularly when the grandparents, neighbours, friends etc all give the children their little Easter chocolate. Enjoy these Easter treats from Femeconomy approved members Tinta Crayons and Hardtofind. 

If your fur baby is anything like ours growing up, it will be treated like a human. To this day my Mum’s dog receives gifts, gives gifts, has home-cooked meals, loves long walks, being pampered and I am pretty sure understands most of what we are saying. For many of us our furry companions give us so much joy and as another child in the house, we don’t want them to miss out. That’s we asked our friends at Rufus & Coco to share some of their bestsellers as gifts for our furry friends.

Tinta Crayons

Chocolate Easter Bunny Stud Earrings

These miniature chocolate Easter bunny studs make a very fun gift this Easter. Handmade from polymer clay, these tiny (just over 1cm) studs look so realistic, but are not edible! Made using surgical steel posts and clasps they are suitable for most sensitive ears. A very unique (and calorie free!) gift idea. They come beautifully packaged in a perspex storage box.
