The Easter Basket is a yearly tradition for many, but who says it always has to be a BASKET??? Try one of these creative Easter basket alternatives this year to break the mold. The alternative to the Easter basket can actually be part of the gift itself and might even inspire you to feature a whole theme!
20 Easter Basket Alternatives
1. Flower Pot or Watering Can – Go for a gardening theme with tools, gloves, flower bulbs, and seed packets. Here’s an example of an Easter Flower Pot in place of a traditional basket. Another idea would be to put together the supplies for your child to make their own rainbow flower pot.
2. Sand Bucket – Get ready for the upcoming summer by filling the sand bucket with shovels, sand castle molds, sand trucks, and a new swim suit. Or if you hit the pool more than the beach, skip the sand toys and go for dive sticks and goggles.
4. Dump Truck
8. Mixing Bowl — Inspire a budding chef with their own mixing bowl filled with a spatula, mixing spoon, whisk, silicone cupcake liners, apron, and a few key ingredients for making cookies or cupcakes.
14. Fish Bowl or Terrarium — Get everything ready for introducing a new pet. Set up a fish bowl or terrarium with new pet supplies as well as some goldfish crackers for the child, and a gift card for picking out a new fish, lizard, or frog from the pet store….or go the stuffed animal route for a pet that can survive any childhood!
