Easter is on the horizon, and after polling you all in our Instagram stories it was a resounding yes to wanting some special Easter gift ideas.
When it comes to Easter gifts, you said you don’t want gimmicky, novelty one off (a bit crap) Easter gifts. Which is perfect, because we are all about the beautiful, classic and special gifts. Gifts that have a touch of Easter about them to mark the occasion, but are equally classic and will be loved and treasured all year round. And for many years to come.
So here we are with the most classic gift of them all, the O.G. Jellycat Bashful Bunny. As the leading stockist of Jellycat in Australia (yep we are the biggest stockist), Jellycat Bunnies are one of our best selling items year round. But at Easter time it’s their time to shine.
If you’re looking for a beautiful, classic and special Easter gift that most importantly your special little person will LOVE, look no further.

Or read on here’s all the reasons why we love Jellycat Bunnies:
Jellycat Bashful Bunnies are *the best* sensory soothers. They have incredibly soft and tactile fur unlike any other soft toy, which makes them comforting, calming and soothing all at once. If you know you know. FOR REAL The deliciously soft, plush fur promotes tactile awareness and stimulates the senses and this has a flow on calming effect. Plus they are filled with a little sac of weighted beans which adds to the sensory effect. Once that unmistakable fur becomes a little loved on, they also become familiar and safe. This and their super cute faces is why they are the toy your little one becomes attached too.
Even better, the Jellycat Bashful Bunnies are safe from birth. Everything is internally stitched in to make sure they are super safe. Most plush toys are not and this is why they are our gift of choice for teeny babes.
Jellycat Bashful Bunnies have the most perfect proportions for little people. Their floppy ears and arms are perfect for grabbing and lugging around. They aren’t super heavy and you can bet your little person will be dragging them around on all the adventures. Plus with the weighted bodies, they sit so sweetly on a shelf and no nursery is complete until there’s a Jellycat Bunny or 12 sitting on the shelf.
They are so collectable! Jellycat Bashful Bunnies come in soooo many beautiful colours and sizes, your little one will love having a little crew of bunnies. Each with their own personality and story to tell. They’ll be incorporated into open ended games, like cubby houses, tea parties and role play. There is truly no such thing as too many!
They are machine washable. YEP you can put them in the washing machine. We recommend using a washing bag, and the coldest, gentlest cycle you have available. And then laying flat to dry. Over time the fur does change, but this is the beauty of them.
They are irresistibly sweet! Jellycat Bashful Bunnies are classic and timeless. We see it in stores daily, little people (and big people) love the look and feel of these special bunnies. And no matter where they are displayed, they are the thing that stop people in their tracks!
True story: the warehouse team give every Jellycat a little cuddle before packing it in an order, and sending it on it’s way with love.
OK that’s why we love them and this is why and what we think you *need* to immediately add to cart and get your Easter shopping underway:
A classic medium bashful bunny is the perfect newborn Easter gift. Whether it’s a babe on the way or a newborn – this is a classic gift that is age appropriate and will be treasured for a childhood.
When you need something “small” or want something that feels like Easter but isn’t an egg, and isn’t junk. A small bashful bunny ticks all the boxes. And will bring loads of joy. There are sooo many colours to choose from, it is such a perfect Easter gift.
When you want something a bit extra and super spesh. Maybe it’s the first Easter your little person is clued onto. Or maybe it’s the last year you think they will believe. Or maybe you just want to spoil them. The big bunnies make super special, gifts that will bring all the JOY.
When you want to create a tradition. Jellycats are something that can be collected, and so they’re a great annual gift! A different colour each year to add to the crew.
As you can see, we are big Jellycat Bunny enthusiasts. All year round, but especially at Easter. We did the costings too, when compared to Easter Eggs or gimmicky Easter gifts (both of which are done with in the days after the main event), these are outrageously good value. Beautiful and timeless and most importantly something that will bring immense JOY at Easter time.
Good luck choosing 🐰🐰🐰
