Easter basket ideas can be challenging, but we’re here with some easy ideas to make your life a little easier!
We always go in thinking we’re going to do small Easter baskets. After all, it’s not a major holiday in our houses, and even if it was it’s not exactly a gift centered holiday. But, Easter always comes right about the time the weather starts to warm up and it never fails that the kids need things like new sandals, swimsuits, or other summer activity related activities. This is the perfect time to pass off things you’d buy them anyway as gifts. Work smarter, not harder!
Of course candy is also a highlight of the baskets. I try to only do one small thing because that’s something the grandparents always have a pretty good handle on.
Easter basket Ideas for Kids: Under $10
My kids have decided they need watches. Can they tell time? No. Do I think I’m going to regret this? Yes. But, these are good price point with their favorite characters so I know they’ll be happy.
Another thing my kids have recently gotten into is Pokemon. They have no idea to play, but they’ve seen other kids at school with them, so they have decided it must be something they need to. I got this small pack for each of them. They can get pricey, but since they have no clue what they’re doing I went with the cheapest one I could find.
Chalk is always fun, and this Crayola pack is the best. It doesn’t break easily and the colors are so vivid.
These goggles are a great price, come in fun colors, are a basically indestructible!
Brittany’s kids are really in to “chillaxing” so she thought these reusable eye gel masks would be fun to throw in.
Chapstick. We go through so much, might as well throw some in their baskets.
My kids always need pajamas, and it’s my one chance to get their buy in to match my boy and girl. I’m putting these pajama sets in each of their baskets, but this set is really cute too! I love these ones too! Brittany got these ones for her kids.
Brittany’s kids are obsessed with Mini Brands Eggs. Yes, as seen on TikTok.
How cute are these slides?
Thinking ahead summer and fall sports (and also keeping these kids entertained over summer break), this tee, whiffle balls, and collapsible goal will be added to (well, in the vicinity of) their baskets as joint gifts.
This reusable Kodak film camera is a less wasteful version of the disposable cameras that are suddenly all the rage again.
