40+ Christian Easter Gift Ideas

We did an Easter basket for my daughter’s first and second Easter, but there were only so many “junk toys” and candy we could put in there, and so we stopped.

Are those things bad? No.

But do they miss the point of what the true meaning of Easter is? Yes.

Go ahead and toss in the candy and such in there, but make sure you also fill your kiddos’ Easter basket with gifts that will ultimately point them back to why we celebrate Easter… Jesus’ death and resurrection!

These gifts range from infants all the way up to elementary-aged kids, so I’ve got you covered for years to come! 😉

I’ve also broken them down into 5 different categories: storybooks, coloring/activity books, crafts, media, and miscellaneous.

We’ve got a TON of Christian Easter gift ideas to go through, so let’s get started! 🙌🏻

Christian Easter Books As Gifts:

From sweet bedtime stories, Bibles for kids, and Easter books about Jesus’ last few days on Earth, these books are perfect gifts to add to your kids’ Easter baskets!

The First Easter – great first Easter board book for babies!

God Bless Our Easter – this is a great series, one for every holiday and occasion and they are so sweet to read.

Laugh and Grow Bible for Kids: The Gospel in 52 Five-Minute Bible Stories – our favorite kids’ Bible that tells one Bible story per week, and has family connection questions – a great way to start enjoying family Bible time together!

My Easter Basket: The True Story of Easter – FUN visual take on associating colors with the Easter story!

NIV Backpack Bible – this would be great for them to keep with them at all times, and fit in their backpack!

The Beginner’s Bible the Very First Easter – getting your child a Bible, especially their first one is so important!

    These are great ideas!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Love this! For slightly older kids (especially boys who are hard to shop for) I’ve done scripture memory cards (the ones from Daily Grace are super cute) , The Action Bible (and the companion devotional), Bible highlighters, prayer journals, and sermon notes pages bound into a notebook.

    1. Oh I love those ideas! I have some of the scripture memory cards from the Daily Grace Co too, they are wonderful!! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m actually in the works of making some free sermon note printables, I’ll post them here when they are done! There will be a version for preschoolers and older kids. 🙂
