I can't believe Easter is right around the corner! I always remember as a kid getting enough Easter eggs to last me at least a month, or maybe I just ate them slowly either way I loved Easter. A few days ago I shared Amelia's Easter Basket with you all and many of you have been asking for ideas of what to put in an Easter Basket so today I thought I would put together a list of ideas to help you pick items to go in your child's Easter Basket. Now that I have a daughter of my own I love coming up with fun and creative ways to make each holiday that extra bit special. Which is why I decided to put together a little Easter basket for her just like her Christmas one but with Easter goodies instead. I hope to continue this tradition for special holidays as she grows up.
You can buy a wicker basket or metal bucket from eBay or even pick up a cute easter basket if you happen to come across one in a shop. Or why not make your own? I bought mine from eBay and it's just a white oval wicker basket incase you were wondering. You can find them in many shapes and sizes so I'm sure you'll find something to your taste.
You may then wish to fill your basket with some Easter grass which you could use tissue paper or any the stuff you sometimes find in your parcels which is a natural colour and looks like grass. What ever you decide I'm sure it will look great!
Next you want to buy items for your basket. There are many places that you can shop for ideas to fill your basket.
- Pound land/ B&M/ Home bargains - Good for picking up chocolate/sweets or little toys.
- Tesco usually have an Easter section closer to the time with bits and bobs to choose from.
- eBay - You can find pretty much anything on eBay.
- Etsy - For handmade items such as personalised goodies and easter outfits.
Here are some ideas of what to put in your child's basket, I've tried to include both boy and girl options and also some gender neutral too. I've also includes links on some of them so you can find them easily. Make the basket fun to look at, if you're not keen on giving Easter eggs at Easter then an Easter basket will be perfect for you and your family. Fill it with little treats which aren't food related or perhaps opt to give an alternative to an Easter egg and give a smaller bag of sweets.
