5 Ideas for the Perfect Easter Basket
1. Think outside the “basket”
Sure a cute little woven basket is cute and traditional, but think outside the box with what you want to wrap all the goodies in. From cartoon-themed buckets, sand castle buckets, and adorable tote bags, there are so many ways you incorporate a fun “basket”. If you’d rather use traditional Easter baskets for egg hunting, decorate them with colorful tulle or custom initials.
2. Candies and chocolates
What’s an Easter basket without sweet treats? Fill up your Easter baskets with seasonal candies like chocolate bunnies, Robin Eggs, cotton candy and marshmallow Peeps. The best part of customizing your own Easter baskets is also adding your loved ones favorite candies to the mix!
3. Fun toys
Now that spring is in full swing, get your little ones excited when they first see their basket filled with toys! The options are endless, but if you can’t decide try going for toys they can play with under the sun! From beach/pool toys, puzzles, bubble kits, and sunglasses, the list can go on!
If you have a lot more space than expected, make your Easter basket look a lot more full with colorful Easter eggs. Fill them up with additional candies or coins and place them in gaps. You can even recycle these eggs to use in the Easter egg hunt!
