Waking up to an Easter basket of bunny-shaped candies and a variety of holiday-themed goodies is part of the Easter fun for kids. You can certainly buy a premade Easter basket that has all the standard Easter treats, or you can craft your own, filling it with a creative array of treats that will make your child’s Easter extra special. Here are a few fun Easter gifts for kids you can tuck into a basket or present as individual gifts.
Lindt Gold Bunny
Chocolate bunnies are a quintessential Easter treat, so why not give your child – and every member of your family, for that matter – a chocolate bunny that will make a difference? Lindt’s iconic Lindt Gold Bunny is one small bunny that will greatly benefit the growing number of families affected by autism. Lindt has, for a second year now, partnered with Autism Speaks to raise $100,000 for the nonprofit through a donation for each Lindt Gold Bunny purchased. Choose from dark, milk or white chocolate.
