Top 50 Easter Basket Gift Ideas

Easter baskets can be so much fun to put together for your kids!  This year for Easter, Amy and I decided to have a No-Candy Easter Basket policy at both our houses.  This is what we are giving our girls.

Amy is going to bling-in Easter for Erica this year with these awesome blingin' desk supplies.  She is going to love it!

Last year, she did themed baskets and her daughter was in Soccer- Her soccer Easter basket looked like this:

I like the pink tin basket! I usually re-use my daughter's basket from year to year but they are just plastic and will not last forever. The sidewalk chalk and sunglasses would be perfect for her as well since we go through a package of it every year and she has needed new sunglasses for a while now. Thanks for the ideas :)

This is such a great idea. I will definitely be doing something like this next year, as we don't want to be giving our little boy all that sugar. He is only 4 months now, so we just gave him a small bunny toy to commemorate his first easter, but next year when he is able to enjoy it we would like to do something that doesn't involve loads of sugar like easter usually does. Thank you for this! I'm going to keep an eye on your site for more great ideas.

I try to do a theme each year as well - this past year I had to do three different themes so for my oldest who is 17 - needed a new bible to I bought the bible and then a devotional and candy in an Easter plastic bucket, my 16 year old got a movie/game theme which included an Xbox game, and popcorn, sunflower seeds, boiled peanuts, and few other favorites in a plastic popcorn tub (this one was my favorite), my youngest just started getting into makeup so that was her theme (she's 12). Makeup, fingernail polish, and candy, in a decorative wicker type basket.

We always got all our swim gear on easter. Growing up in florida with a pool in everyones back yard and the beach a couple miles away we spent a lot of time swimming. Our baskets were filled with 2 bathing suits, goggles, flip flops, a cover up, a fun bag, sun screen. We also got one chocolate easter bunny and that was it for candy. My mom hid hard boiled eggs and we'd find them and make egg salad and deviled eggs. I'm going to start the same tradition with my 2 year old.

My kiddos always get a little bit of candy in their baskets, but they mostly get new swimsuits, flip flops, beach towels, clothes, outside toys, water toys and art supplies. Everything they need to start the summer off right!

This year, the oldest got some Peeps and a Pez dispenser (traditions from my childhood), bubbles, fun pencils, a small Lego box, Transformer figurines, and a silly straw. My daughter got Peeps, Pez dispenser, bubbles, pencils, a My Little Pony, and a matching pajama set for her and her doll. And the baby (9 months) got a few fruit/veggie squeeze packets, a new pair of pajamas, and a stuffed duck. Seems like a lot, but Target had a buy 1, get 1 50% off deal on all the toys!
