1 Coloring Books and Crayons
What kid doesn’t enjoy coloring and drawing? Crayons get worn out and broken really quickly. They can be found at dollar stores, along with a couple fun coloring books. This is usually a staple in children’s Easter baskets.
Easter means springtime, and springtime means more time outdoors! Bubbles are a fun little gift for kids. It’s amazing how happy they get when they run around making bubble art and trying to pop them!
I’m not talking about Tiffany’s jewelry here, but children really like fun dress-up jewelry. Claire’s has plenty of affordable options for girls, and I’ve noticed that boys sometimes like dog tags.
4 Nail Polish
There have been a plethora of safe nail polishes that are made just for kids. This can be a great gift for a mother-daughter mani/pedi! There are plenty of fun neon and classic colors to choose from, and best of all: lots of them are scented!
5 Admission Passes to the Museum, Zoo, Etc
I absolutely loved going to science museums and zoos when I was a kid. My dad would bring me every weekend to visit my favorite animals and to check out new exhibits. So throwing in a few passes for the kids can get them really excited about going to an educational place!
My sticker collection was my pride and joy. I loved collecting them, and I’m sure your kids do, too! There’s something super fun and exciting about getting new stickers. Try getting scratch and sniff stickers or glow-in-the-dark stickers. They’re always a huge hit with kids!
7 Bunny Ears
Bunny ears are absolutely adorable on kids! I would get a new pair every year, and they’re super fun to wear around on Easter. Plus, this gives you another reason to snap more pictures of them!
8 Movie or Concert Tickets
Kids love going to the movies, so why not get them some movie tickets? If your kid is more into music, check out Ticketmaster to see what concerts are going on in your area. My parents always put Disney On Ice tickets in my basket, and it was the best!
9 New Books
Bookstores usually put out the bestsellers for different genres, so you can pick out a few books that you think your child would like! Or better yet, you can get a gift card and then let your kid choose!
10 Fun Board Games
Find one or two fun family games to put in your child’s basket! Not only will he or she enjoy playing it during family game night, there’ll be something else to do when friends come over! Some of my personal favorites are Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monopoly, and Candyland.
11 Personalized Gifts
There are so many websites to purchase personalized stationary or bags. Pottery Barn offers a wonderful personalization option, and you can monogram anything from lunchboxes to blankets. That way, you don’t have to worry about someone else snatching up your child’s lunch box or notepad, since it’ll have his or her name on it!
Those were some of my favorite gifts that I used to receive in my Easter basket! Do you have any Easter basket staples? What did you like seeing in your Easter basket?
