It’s so easy to go overboard when buying for your kid’s Easter basket – there are SO many cute things out there! I have a hard time not adding every bunny thing I see to cart… so I came up with an easy way to not overbuy for their baskets. Here’s my Easter basket equation + 50 fun Easter basket ideas to choose from! Fill you child’s basket with:
- something to read
- something to wear
- something personalized
- something useful
- something to play with (aka a toy)
Things Remembered gifted me some adorable personalized bunnies and personalized Contigo stainless steel water bottles for the kids’ Easter baskets and they turned out SO cute!
