I’ve said it before and will say it again–Easter is one of my favorite holidays! The nostalgia of waking up, seeing what the Easter bunny put in our baskets, and then running around the yard to hunt for eggs is unmatched. I think, as an adult, I’ve come to love this Holiday for its’ simplicity and effortlessness. It’s a one-and-done kind of day with minimal prep and minimal cleanup. But mostly, I love it because I love any day we get to spend intentionally as a family. Usually, I keep the Easter basket ideas pretty minimal and just put one or two things in each basket. We steer away from candy but trust they’ll find a few plastic eggs with goodies hidden around the yard. But more than anything, I look forward to a beautifully decorated and deliciously cooked Easter family dinner at the end of the day.

Umbrellas as Easter basket ideas

If you’re looking for some Easter basket ideas, here are a bunch of options for kids of all ages. I think there’s something in here for anyone with any budget that kids will actually use and love.

A round-up of Easter basket ideas

Squishmallows are all the rage right now. These collectibles are as soft and squishy as a marshmallow, and it’s all my kids want these days.

I’ve been seeing these water bottles everywhere! Recently I purged a bunch of unused kitchen items and realized our kids are in need of some quality water bottles! Love these, and they come in so many fun colors.

This year, I got this stunning book to put in one of the girls’ easter baskets. It’s full of delicately drawn Picasso drawings of birds and other animals.

Easter is a perfect excuse to gift things they might need as the weather starts warming up. These swim trunks are super cute, and they come in so many other patterns and colors!

As I said, it’s time to gear up for some warmer weather, so throw this classy checkered beach towel in, and you’re set for summer!

Greta has been doing these gem-by-numbers, and she got so sucked into it that I could barely get her to leave her room! Perfect for any older kid or teenager, or even yourself. Beware, it’s highly satisfying!

I cannot get over how cute this crochet bag is. It’s retro, and colorful, which is totally what the young crowd wants these days.

8. Pool Float $24

We have these pool floats in several colors, and they’re our favorite way to lounge around in the pool.

Nine times out of 10, Faye will request a surprise ball of any kind. The anticipation and surprise of it all are better than what’s inside.

10. Twill Cap $14

The only thing cuter than a denim cap is a little kid in a denim cap. Yes, please.

One thing we’re getting used to in North Carolina is having to keep umbrellas on hand. I got the adult-sized one for Greta, and it’s so adorable.

The cutest spring swimsuit there is.

Haven’t met a kid that doesn’t like a bubble machine!

14. Scooter $175

If you want to splurge a bit more on something your kids can play outside with, this is the scooter to get! Polly loves riding her scooter along the driveway whenever she gets the chance.

I thought this game looked so cute, so I’m snatching it and hoping it becomes a new favorite!

I love reading a bedtime book to my girls that will put me in my feels and make me tear up. This seems like it will do the trick.

If you’re looking for some Easter baskets, I’ve got you covered. Here is a curation of the cutest Easter baskets I could find! And with that, Happy Easter!

What do you think?

    Crowd sourcing this dilemma; what do you put in the plastic Easter eggs besides candy or coins?

    • Mara says:

      What my daughter has received: Stickers, stamps, erasers in cute shapes, temporary tattoos.
      Otherwise, Going to a party store where they sell party favors you can find ideas for “small goods”. Alternately, You can make a treasure map for Easter baskets and skip the egg hunt.

    • Michelle says:

      We always fill a few with stickers or temporary tattoos! Last year I picked up a 6-pack of micro machines (small toy cars) and those were a hit too. And we always have some with candy. :)

    • Samantha says:

      Hi Sunny! There are a whole bunch of backpack clips / keychain options – from Star Wars lego characters to donuts and puffy unicorns … or shaped erasers are fun (rainbows, fruit, animals, etc.) … or maybe a glowlight bracelet (hmm, that might not fit in an egg) … and there are always stickers!
      Then there’s the classic ‘custom coupon’ – a little rolled up note where they get to pick the game or movie for family night, or a 1:1 date with mom or dad, or an extra hour before bed – the possibilities are endless!
      Happy Spring from Canada.

    • Mia says:

      Finger flashlights, jewelry, nail stickers, sticky hands, matchbox cars

    • Karen Begley says:

      I love this part! Over the years, I’ve done Dominos, beads, stickers, mini stamps, crayon rocks, hair elastics, puzzle pieces, and dice for a Tenzi game.

It’s been over a year since we started designing our bathroom. We were working with Unique Kitchens and Baths for the cabinetry, and they came up with two different layouts. We selected one, tweaked it a bit and chose a lot of the finishes…annnnnd honestly we could never quite give the final “go ahead.” This […]
