Easter Basket Gift Ideas

With Easter right around the corner, we know it can be challenging to come up with fresh ideas to fill your child’s Easter basket without breaking the bank. We wanted to help you out, so we put together a list of some fun gifts we found around town. Check it out!

Gift Ideas for Infants and Toddlers

One great thing about having young children is that they often aren’t picky about their toys! Any of these ideas are sure to make your child smile and provide them with a good time.

  • Teething Rings
  • Toy Cars and Trucks
  • Board Books -- Board books are a great way to entertain and educate your child while they are still in their chewing phase! The thicker pages are sure to withstand whatever your child chooses to do to them.
  • Fun-Shaped Crayons -- Many stores sell crayons shaped like small cars, animals, and other fun objects. Be on the lookout for fun new ways to encourage your child to color!

Non-Candy Egg Fillers

Contrary to what you might think, we aren’t anti-candy! If you choose to give your child candy, we recommend giving them milk chocolate, as it will not stick on their teeth for as long as other candy. If you are trying to cut back on candy this year, here are some other things you can put in your eggs.

  • Coins -- Kids love to collect change. Try splitting it up and putting it in a bunch of different eggs so that your child can find $5 across 25 eggs!
  • Temporary Tattoos
  • Stickers
  • Small Toys

Prepare For Fun Summer Weather

You can pick up fun summer-themed items for your kids to get them excited for all of their warm-weather adventures! It’s always beneficial to knock out two birds with one stone and give your kids things that they need as gifts.

  • Swimsuits
  • Sunglasses
  • Beach/Pool Toys
  • Flip Flops/Crocs
  • Goggles

Finding gifts for your kids can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. We hope we were able to help! Happy Easter!
