I love this time of year! Flowers blooming, sunny days and Easter is on its way! Which is why I wanted to do something special for all my readers and share some of my favorite Easter basket ideas. So lets start with some basket ideas.
EASTER BASKET IDEAS
Even though my girls are almost grown I still love making Easter baskets for them. Today they still get the usual holiday treats but I add more mature items in their baskets. We use the same old baskets they have had for years. When they were little I decided to get them something timeless so it wouldn’t go out of style. I think I did pretty good with that.
GOODIES INSIDE BASKET
You never know what you might get from the Easter bunny 😉 in the basket. But one thing for sure a Starbucks Giftcard is a an easy purchase. And this year Starbucks has some of the cutest spring and Easter cards out there. I particularly thought this one was adorable! It’s going to make a great basket gift on Easter Sunday.
Another good idea for teens is CD’s and movies. If there is a new movie that has just come out and your child really loves it consider getting them the soundtrack or movie on DVD. I chose Moana CD for one daughter and Beauty and the Beast for the other. They love Disney music!
OTHER TRADITIONAL GOODIES
Every year I have to get a chocolate bunny to go in the basket and depending on each daughter there are other items that are traditional. For example Hannah’s favorite is Peeps so it would not be Easter without putting some of those in her basket and of course her sister will get some too.

TRUE MEANING OF EASTER
Easter wouldn’t exist without Jesus. You see Easter represents his resurrection. So I always want to include something that reminds us all of Him. Sometimes I put small devotionals in there or a decorative cross or bookmark. Mainly if you celebrate the real meaning of Easter then look for something that reminds them of what it’s all about.
Sometimes I include an item they can wear on Easter Sunday to church. For example, it could be a bracelet or earrings. I don’t always do this–it all depends on what I see while I am out shopping.
But this year I am considering doing something different. I recently read where another blogger put out her baskets on Easter eve. That way Easter Sunday is spent focusing on the true meaning. What a great idea! I can’t wait to surprise the girls with a new tradition.
I hope you get some good ideas for your kids Easter baskets for this year and maybe even start a new tradition.
Good luck and Happy Easter,
