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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

Crowd sourcing this dilemma; what do you put in the plastic Easter eggs besides candy or coins?
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.
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. :)
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.
Finger flashlights, jewelry, nail stickers, sticky hands, matchbox cars
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.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
