Easter Basket Ideas that Don’t involve Candy!

Thanks for Sharing!

Filling up kiddo’s Easter Baskets has always been one of my favorite things to do.  I have some Easter basket traditions I do every year… like sandals or flip-flops, sunglasses, and some items for the beach (we’re in Southern California so Easter break week usually means a trip to the beach).  But over the years I’ve come up with lots of fun alternatives to just easter candy and treats, so I thought I’d share with you guys some of my favorites Easter gifts over the years. That way you don’t have to overload your kiddos with chocolate and jelly beans.

35 Easter Basket Ideas that don't involve candy - great ideas your kids will love!

  1. This is awesome post. Thanks Nate. This is a best post about Easter Basket Ideas that Don’t involve Candy. I need to purchase golf bag, and suddenly see this great post. I share this site with my friends and colleagues too…cheers !

  2. My youngest is 11 and we still do Easter baskets. I usually fill them with nail polish, magazines, inexpensive jewelry, hair things, etc. I love your idea to include a pair of sandles. I will have to do that this year.

  3. These are some good ideas. Those little big-eyed Beanie Babies are really cute and I have noticed that Cracker Barrel Country Store is carrying those too. I hadn’t thought it but they would be perfect for Easter baskets. My husband always loves to put a big bottle of bubbles in the baskets for our grandkids too!
