I have a small obsession with Bed, Bath and Table Easter ‘stuff’ #notsponsored #justhaveissues. Every year I tell myself that I will not purchase more, and every year I purchase more. I seem unable to resist the whites, greys and pastel perfection of their bunnies, bilbies and homewares. I don’t really love Christmas home decor…but Easter? I could have it up all year round, it’s something about all those birds nests, all the pastels and whites – so very, very calming! Anyone else feel the same?
UPDATE: they have 25% off Easter stuff HERE!
We are not going to try and top last Easter, where the girls got day old chicks as gifts – which we had hidden for three days in the laundry, complete with infra-red heat lamp and chook smells. The chooks are now nearly a year old and the blue eggs that some of them lay are treasured indeed.
We don’t do lots of Easter gifts, but this year, ChickPea and PudStar are getting a gift or two each, from some of my favourite online stores (not sponsored) including Oh My Giddy Aunt, Biome, Bed, Bath and Table and Nightie Night Lane, and of course some new books to add to our collection of Easter titles. The books below are all the Easter books which I am loving this year. The title and/or cover takes you to Australian owned and operated online bookstore Booktopia.

Below are Pud’s gifts – the silver bilby charm from Oh My Giddy Aunt will be from her fairies (via the fairy door…shhhhhh) and she can add it to her charm bracelet, which you can read more about here. It could also be gifted on a silver necklace or a bookmark – Oh My Giddy Aunt do a mean bookmark. They also have lots of eggs and bunnies if that is more your thing.
The lovely Nikki at Oh My Giddy Aunt has kindly offered all Children’s Books Daily readers a special offer of a free “Lucky Dip” sterling silver charm with any order, using childrensbooksdaily as the promo code at checkout. Nikki is just a delight to purchase from, her service is super fast and everything is beautifully packaged. Wins all round.

‘Bilby Secrets’ and ‘Bilby Moon’ are also bilby books which can be read year round. ‘Bilby Secrets’ is part of the Nature Storybooks series which I absolutely love and I wish I’d come up with the idea – a genius combination of narrative and non-fiction writing.
A further ‘Easter but not Easter’ book is ‘Squish Rabbit’ and ‘Brave Squish Rabbit’ by Katherine Battersby. You can read my full review here. UQP have recently released ‘Squish Rabbit’ as a board book which you can purchase here, now they just need to release a toy – pretty please?
For readers age five – ten years I would highly recommend ‘Ruby Red Shoes’ and you can read my full review here. I’m guessing most of you already have this exquisite series. Author/illustrator Kate Knapp lives locally and I’ve been so fortunate to get to know the talent behind this series and the Twigseeds brand. You can read more about Kate here.Booktopia.
