One of the ways we celebrate Easter is by creating colourful baskets filled with decorated eggs, candies and toys. There are many ways you can make it more fun and exciting by adding personal touches to the baskets you create and by stretching your imagination to create Easter basket designs your family will get excited about.
Easter Baskets for Kids
Gift baskets for kids typically include small toys, candy and coloured eggs. Make the basket more fun by purchasing plastic eggs and filling them with money or notes promising gifts that might not fit in the basket. Allow children to pick out their own baskets — something that fits their personality. Use the same basket each year to create an Easter tradition and to make seeing the basket on Easter morning more exciting. Some ideas:
To suit the taste
Make a special basket for as per taste of the recipient. Focus on those little gifts and treats you know they like. If your recipient is a music fan then make a surprise addition to a basket with coasters with a print of his favourite musician. Works as a keepsake too. For a book lover a favourite book. Beautiful innovative dazzling lights for someone who loves innovation. A classy watch for the time keeper. These gifts can help make a basket more appealing.
Small trinkets and toys such as jewellery, playing cards, stuffed animals, coloured pencils and other art supplies, miniature dolls and toy cars are desirable Easter basket items for kids. Other small items such as books, manicure sets and other personal items, age-appropriate magazines and gift certificates are desirable for a variety of ages. Small trinkets can be paired with assorted chocolates and other candy for a wide-ranging Easter basket that appeals to a variety of likings.
Keepsakes such as jewellery boxes, watch cases or classy garden tools and delicate bookmarks are meaningful and celebratory Easter basket items for recipients. Bonsai plants are also beautiful and growing Easter gifts.
