30 Ideas of Easter Basket Goodies…


If you’re looking for ideas of things to fill your child or grandchild’s Easter basket with, the following list should get your creative juices flowing.  Of course, it goes without saying, choose age appropriate gifts.

Easter is such a season of hope!  It’s always a joyful time as we celebrate the Risen Savior!  Love the Resurrection Eggs too and have used those as teaching tools down through the years with my kids.  I’ve been filling Easter baskets for 25 years and I’ve learned to get a little creative, especially since I don’t like the idea of too much candy (= high dental bills among other things!).  My three are older now, but the tradition continues.  While our primary focus as believers is on Jesus, we still enjoy fixing up Easter baskets.

30 Things To Put in Easter Baskets:

  1. candy (of course!)
  2. gum
  3. fruit roll up type snack
  4. toothbrush
  5. toothpaste
  6. small Bible
  7. small journal
  8. Easter themed book
  9. “This Coupon Good For ______” inside plastic Easter egg
  10. “I love you” note inside Easter egg
  11. coins inside egg
  12. small craft kit
  13. gel pens
  14. colorful markers/pencils
  15. coloring book
  16. puzzle book (word search, etc.)
  17. Post-its
  18. Scotch tape (what kid doesn’t love tape?!)
  19. Slinky
  20. other small toy
  21. play doh
  22. body wash
  23. loofah/sponge
  24. bubble bath
  25. shampoo
  26. lotion
  27. lip balm
  28. nail polish
  29. small manicure set
  30. key chain

What do you think?  Have anything to add to the list?

~ May you all have a blessed Easter!  He is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!

  1. I never thought of adding bubble bath to baskets. That’s a great idea, kids and adults both love bubble bath. I wrote about adding some healthier additions to the basket: http://justmeandyoukid.com/healthy-easter-basket-ideas/
