What to Look for in a Easter Gift for Kids 

Age and stage

When looking for gifts, especially those for younger kids, choose toys that are right for their age and stage. Nearly all toys have age recommendations or guidelines on the packaging to help find appropriate gifts. 

Gift size

Some families may prefer gifts that fit in traditional Easter baskets while others may hide goodies during an Easter egg hunt or share them in another way. Prior to buying, decide how you will be presenting the gift and if it needs to fit into a basket or other spot. 

Seasonal

The best part about Easter gifts is that they don't have to strictly adhere to an Easter-specific theme. If you want to buy a gift outside of the box, opt for a gift that they can use in the spring or summer season.
