Easter Basket Gift Ideas

By Isabel Kallman

Who says that Easter Baskets need to be filled with ONLY chocolate bunnies and Peeps. Though, you’ve gotta include one or two.

However, here are some adorable gift ideas for your children’s Easter Baskets or to hide around your place for egg hunting time.



This I Spy Bag will last your kids well past Easter and into road trip season this summer. Look for the fun trinkets inside.

I’m starting a new tradition in my house this year. I’m going to start collecting Easter Eggs, much like we collect special Christmas Tree Ornaments and hide them in our family’s annual egg hunt. I think this cute baby chick will be the first one in our collection. It’s part of a series called Mystery Petz and there are lots of different species available. Too adorable!

Another great egg to include in a hunt. This plastic egg is full of vintage mystery jewelry charms, lockets, watch parts and other trinkets. I love that this is an easy DIY idea to replicate.


Who says you need a plush bunny in an Easter Basket? This lovely wooden one is the perfect alternative.


These bunny finger puppets are eco-friendly as they are made from leftover bits and bobs used in other creations.


Kids love fun-shaped soap. So it only makes sense to indulge in bunny soap.

Yes, I have a thing for wood toys. I confess.

This is another cute egg to include in an Easter egg hunt. Love Waldorf gnomes.

As with all goods sold on Etsy, if it is sold out, please poke around the individual shop owner’s listing as they usually re-list popular items or contact the shop owner individually to see if another one is coming up for sale. And that is the beauty of the Etsy marketplace.
