Easter is an exciting time of year for those who celebrate. It’s a time for rest, family meals, and – of course – lots and lots of chocolate.

But there’s something that everybunny should keep in mind when getting ready for the long weekend: Don’t buy bunnies as Easter gifts.

This time of year is when rescues like Hop Haven become inundated with dumped rabbits that children get bored of once the thrill of Easter is over.

Rabbits are exotic pets meaning that they’re a little more complicated than you’d expect. They’re a 12 year commitment that requires a LOT of work (and love).

Instead of gifting pet rabbits, take a look at some of these cute rabbit-themed gift ideas.
