Easter has easily become one of my very favorite holidays. I love the warmer weather, the trees blossoming, the fresh air and the newness of everything. Not to mention the massive amount of Cadbury Eggs and Reeses Eggs I consume during the months of February, March and April. Perfect for getting ready for my summer bod. 😉

I know Easter candy is a given when buying stuff to put in your kids baskets, but for me, I love filling my kids baskets with stuff that will actually get some use for the warmer weather ahead.

But first, let’s start with the actual basket. There are SO many amazing ideas out there and creative ways to put your Easter items in. Here are a few of my favorites:

Easter Baskets

  1. A baseball hat/sun hat, etc.- Flip the hat upside down and put the items inside. I love these hats for boys (here), and these hats for girls (here and here).
  2. An umbrella– Open up the umbrella and flip it upside down. Fill the inside with lots of Easter goodness. I’m loving this umbrella, this one and this one.
  3. The Classic Basket– I also love the original, classic Easter basket. My favorites here, here, here.
