Fun, Affordable Easter Basket Alternatives
For All Ages!
I am all about budget friendly gifts that are practical. These Easter basket alternatives are so practical and give a fun twist on the traditional basket.
If you are looking for something creative, fun and out of the box to use as an Easter basket that is not actually a basket, here are 18 Easter basket ideas that every age will love! How many kids get excited about the actual basket, right?
Ideas for Affordable Easter Basket Fillers
Amazon, the Target dollar section, Dollar Store chains and other discount stores are all great options when it comes to filling your Easter baskets. Here are some of my favorite alternative baskets for both little ones and older ones. I’ve also included a few ideas at the end just to give you more options as to what to use when thinking of fun storage alternatives.
Now this is a clever and unique idea! I know my oldest would love to receive an Umbrella as his “basket!” I love how Barb incorporated useful items such as a placemat, reusable Popsicle molds and an Easter craft. This would make any child excited Easter morning.
2. Rain Boots
This is my absolute favorite idea yet! Each Spring my boys always receive a new pair of rain boots so why not make it even more special by filling it with goodies!
Bubble wands are always a must and of course some fun treats like Peeps, Cadbury eggs and jelly beans. Another treat my boys like are those fun peanut butter Easter eggs!
Zappos is my go to whenever I purchase shoes for the boys because they have one day free shipping and free return shipping!
