It is Easter Basket time! I hope y’all are ready, cause I’m in a groove with Easter Basket Ideas. I love gift-giving, so this is right up my alley. Plus the Easter season is one of my absolute fave times of the year! This post contains affiliate links.
Finding the Right Easter Basket
It all starts with a good basket to hold all the goodies you find for your kids. I know a lot of people like to get a special Easter Basket, personalized with names and cute bunnies BUT, hear me out.
With closets and attic space overflowing with those baby things you’re saving ‘just in case’, unpacked boxes from when you moved into the house six years ago (wait…), and all the other ‘stuff’ we accumulate, why not get a basket that can serve your kid day-to-day instead of once a year?
First, we’ve had the Olli Ella basket for over a year, and the girls use these so often! They take this basket on walks to store flowers and treasures, around the house with their Maileg mice inside, or the figures to their Tonies box!
The Hearth and Hand Wire basket is useful for the storage of all the little kid things! I just neatly tuck them in a row onto a bookshelf after clean-up time! I have a different color of the same basket from two years ago, and it is still as good as new!
Lastly, the Gathre drawstring pouch is a great option! It can double as a lunch sack to take to school (or work!), store snacks for in the car, or even be a neat way to keep all the pieces of a frequently used puzzle together.

Candy or No Candy?
We choose to include a minimal amount of candy in the girls’ Easter baskets since we do an egg hunt after church. If you want to have candy be a part of your Easter basket, I suggest getting creative with the delivery! Try dropping candy pieces in a new drink cup or snack cup, like this one from Jamie Kay!
Wrapping It Up
No matter what you decide to do for your kid’s Easter baskets, remember to make it fun! I like to set a budget and go from there!
