Cute Easter baskets and fillers

Every year, I think I’ll make a picture-perfect Easter basket, and so far, in the history of being a parent, I’d say my success rate is about 50%. I’m only 6 years old and I think I’ve done well. But, I am determined that this is the year I will improve my game and I believe that by starting now, I can do that. Where are you in all of this? It’s a lot of pressure! Here’s a list of cute Easter baskets plus adorable Easter fillers and non-candy versions too. We hope you find something that speaks to you too.

In the past, I’ve used baskets I have on hand, but this year I’m determined to find something I really love and use year after year. Was this what you did? However, I’ve also found success at the thrift store, which obviously has environmental benefits, so you decide.

What makes a perfect Easter basket?

Since I think a lot about all the holidays, here’s my formula for making the perfect Easter basket:

  1. Overall attractiveness-33%. Is he adorable?
  2. on Brand-33%. I know, I know, I also roll my eyes when I hear people talk about their “brand” when they’re not a company, but I think it will help you decide. Think: Can I connect it to my home decor and will it fit in? If not, it’s probably not the best option. You don’t want to keep something you don’t want in your home, do you?
  3. measuring-33%. Will the eggs fall out while the kids are out fishing? If so, this is not the basket for you! I bought an adorable papier-mache bunny basket for Jasper’s first Easter, and although it was cute and a little quirky, it was lopsided and all the eggs would fall out. He couldn’t actually use it for hunting, so it’s more of a decoration and I’m thinking maybe I shouldn’t have bought it.

Okay, now that we’ve done the bashing, here’s the good stuff.

The most beautiful Easter baskets

There’s a price point for everyone here. Plus, I always love a reference to bunny ears but not super cartoony, you know?!

Easter basket filler

I’ve refined my opinions on what actually goes into an Easter basket over the years, and there are a lot of considerations. Again, I like to overthink things, bear with me. On the one hand, I want them to have lots of fun surprises – I loved them as a kid! On the other hand, I don’t want them to get too used to the idea of ​​getting new things all the time and risk training Veruca salt. And let’s talk about maintenance. New things come into the house all the time. I mean, if every item needs a home, I’m constantly looking at where all of these items are going to go, or if we need them. Lately the answer is no! I think this is a larger topic to discuss, but for now, here are some questions I ask myself:

  • Will the item hold their interest?
  • Does she already have a home at home? If not, it’s out.
  • Does it refer to the holiday? (I personally don’t like to throw away any toy that isn’t holiday related)

Easter basket stuffing ideas

Unlike the actual Easter basket itself, I don’t necessarily have a specific formula for what goes into it, but rather choose a few special items from the following list:

  • stuffed animals
  • A book about Easter or spring
  • Game
  • Special candy (think chocolate bunny or something)
  • Game
  • Tattoo
  • Handmade souvenirs
  • attachments
  • Art supplies
  • Craft kit
  • Dress up in their favorite licensed character (this is one of the ways I get into licensed characters – ha!)
  • Supplements
  • A special holiday edition of a toy they already love (like Lego)
  • Surprise ball (we do this with Jasper every year and it’s a great tradition!)

And if you’re like me and love a good deal, my favorite Easter shopping secret is TJ Maxx. They always have the best stuff! Not supported!

I hope this list helps – let me know if you have any other tips!
