Easter Basket Ideas

Are you looking for Easter basket ideas to help you make your own for someone special?

Or maybe you'd rather order your Easter gift baskets online and have them delivered but need ideas for something a little out of the ordinary.

Either way, I have some tips that I think you'll enjoy.

Let's start with ideas for gift baskets for those of you who want to treat someone special, but just don't have the time to "do-it-yourself."

If you want to splurge on chocolate gift baskets, there are plenty of places online where you can choose from among gourmet Easter baskets or traditional and fun kids Easter baskets.

I've included a selection at the bottom of the page for you to browse through some of the current available Easter baskets.

Themed gift baskets are a favorite of mine as you can really add a personal touch when you know someone well enough to pick the contents to suit their personality, interests, or particular tastes. 

Yes, you can still do this without actually having to create the gift basket yourself.  Most gift basket vendors these days offer a variety of options and themes, but if you want a bit more control over the contents, you'll just love Design It Yourself Gift Baskets

Making Your Own Easter Basket Ideas & Tips

If you don't have the money to order an Easter basket online, don't despair. You can create your own Easter basket gift for a fraction of the cost by assembling it yourself.

You may already have a handy basket you can use somewhere around the house. If not, consider looking at a local second hand shop. They usually have them for about $1.00. You may even find a basket at the local craft store at a really reasonable price.

I always keep my eyes open for pretty or unusual baskets when I go to garage sales, thrift stores, or browse the clearance section of department stores.  They come in handy even if I don't nee it immediately.  Having a few baskets on hand makes it a snap to make a quick and special gift when an occasion arises.

If you don't want to go that route, a simple solution is to grab a small, sturdy, box and wrap it with Easter paper or pastel tissue paper. That will serve as well as anything else.

The first step in assembly is to fill the base of your "basket" with Easter grass or shredded paper.  Then start tucking in a selection of lovely little goodies that your intended "giftee" will enjoy.  Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing...

Ideas to fill your Easter gift basket:

  • chocolate (of course!)
  • favorite magazine
  • candles
  • dish towel set
  • gourmet coffee or tea
  • pair of mugs or teacups
  • mints
  • chewing gum
  • other assorted candies
  • CD of favorite music
  • DVD of a nice movie
  • small framed photo
  • journal
  • set of pens or pencils
  • hand or body lotion
  • perfume or cologne
  • nuts (peanuts, cashews, pecans, etc.)
  • jam or jelly
  • comfy socks or slippers
  • homemade goodies (cookies or candy)
  • small stuffed animal
  • gardening gloves/tools
  • packets of seeds

Well, I hope those Easter basket ideas that will get you started in the right direction. Don't worry. Whoever it is, they're gonna love it, no matter what you decide, just because you took the time to think of them!

I wish you a blessed holiday season. I'd love to share with you what Easter means to me if you've got a few extra minutes.

Happy Easter!

P.S.  Here is the selection of Easter gift baskets I promised if you just want order and be done with it!
