Last weekend, I mentioned that Easter was coming up soon, and Jenny immediately started bemoaning the fact that they don’t get Easter baskets. (We’re “mean” parents – we know.) Grandma came to the rescue, however, and insinuated that they may be getting one this year, so I started brainstorming ideas for non-candy Easter basket gift ideas for kids.
50+ Non-Candy Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Kids
You could head to the local box store and pick up a pre-packaged (and seriously overpriced) Easter basket for your kids this year, or you could pick a few of the Easter basket gifts ideas for kids off this list and create a unique basket for each of your kids that takes into account their personal preferences. I’ve listed examples of each item that I know my kids would love to see in their Easter baskets this year…
1. Easter Books for Kids
Books make great Easter basket gift ideas for kids. Here are a few of our favorite Easter-themed books for kids…
