Kids Easter basket ideas don't have to just be jelly beans and stuffed animals. Read on for a list of 101 Easter basket gifts perfect for the kids on your list.
I love coming up with kids Easter basket ideas! My mom always did an incredible job with our Easter baskets when I was kid. I love being a mommy now and getting to do the same.
If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know I am a huge proponent in shopping sales and year-round. That ensures that: a) we don't spend a ton of extra money in one month on gifts b) I always have a decent stockpile of gifts c) I can get REALLY great bargains. You can find lots of wonderful kids Easter basket deals even if you aren't a year-round deal shopper like me. I highly recommend checking out The Dollar Store or the dollar section at Target and/or Michaels. These stores offers dozens of little gifts that kids love! I was amazed when I went to The Dollar Store this weekend at all the fun little toys and gadgets they had to offer.
Another way to find excellent bargains are by shopping on sites like Groupon and Zulily. Each of these sites offer toys, clothes and gifts at significantly discounted prices. I love putting something personalized in my kids' baskets. I've done personalized books, t-shirts and toys in the past.
For the photo I also tucked in her Baby Be Blessed doll because I think it would make a perfect Easter basket gift. (The dolls are handmade and include your child's name and a special scripture verse). I also think it is important to include something faith oriented in your child's Easter basket since Jesus is why we celebrate Easter. As much as I love the fun of Easter baskets and egg hunts, they do not replace the true meaning of this important holiday.
If you are looking for beautiful baskets that will last your family for years, check out the ones on Personal Creations. They have so many options, and I love the personalization.
