Great Easter Basket Ideas for Creative Fun and Good Use

Do you need some inspiration for Easter basket ideas?

Easter is a great time to get creative when planning out your Easter baskets. And don't forget, Easter isn't just for kids, adults and teens will appreciate a thoughtful and fun Easter basket designed just for them.

In today's economy, it makes more sense to make your Easter baskets practical as well as fun. Reusable baskets, functional fillers, added to the traditional Easter candies and an Easter basket can be as unique as the person who it is designed for. This article will give you some great Easter basket ideas, regardless of the age of the recipient.

Easter Basket Ideas

  • Young Children's Easter Basket: Easter just wouldn't be nearly as much fun if you weren't hiding eggs and filling a basket with colored grass and candies. But a young child's Easter basket can also be practical. For a boy, you could use a sand bucket for the actual Easter basket; once empty, he will have a great toy for the sandbox or beach. A little girl's purse doubles as a great Easter basket, and you can stuff some glitter lip gloss and hair clips alongside the candies. There are many small toys that work great in an Easter basket and can replace many of the candies. Use plastic eggs and fill them with raisins for a healthy alternative. Crayons, fun shape erasers and pencils, even toothbrushes are easy ideas to add to the Easter basket.

  • Teens Easter Basket: Even the most discerning teen can find an Easter basket stuffed with appropriate gift items fun. Movie tickets, make-up, nail polish and emery boards, a coupon for a favorite sandwich joint, even some funky school supplies like gel pens are great basket stuffers for a teen. If your teen has his or her own car, how about adding a gas card next to the chocolate bunny? Your teen will love his or her personal basket. Use a wicker basket that he can add to his room decor if you want a reusable Easter basket.

  • Easter Basket For Mom: How about Easter basket ideas for mother? Even mom would love an Easter basket tailored just for her. Of course you still need to add some chocolate, but how about adding some of your mom's favorite tea or specialty coffee? She might be in need of a new perfume, or some kitchen gadgets. You can tailor an Easter basket just for her. Does she like to scrapbook? Add scrapbooking supplies. There are many small items that are great for just this purpose. Make sure her Easter basket is reusable - moms are always practical. A beautiful hand carved wooden bowl filled with shredded paper makes a lovely Easter basket that she will treasure for years to come. Or how about that Longaberger basket she has had an eye on? Make it a picnic basket to guarantee some great outings in the summer.

  • Easter Basket For Dad: Then, there are Easter basket ideas for fathers. Dads can be a lot of fun to build an Easter basket for. You could use a new tool box, lunch kit, or plastic tote to double as the basket. Just like for mom, you can customize your Easter basket just for your dad, too. If he likes to tinker, there are many small tools, flashlights, measuring tapes, etc, that any hand-dad would love to add to his collection. Tuck them in amongst his favorite candies. For a golfer, you could add tees, golf balls, use a golf towel for bedding and throw in some tokens for the local driving range. Is he more of an armchair sportsman? Easter basket ideas could include a funky all purpose remote control, popcorn, and a subscription to his favorite sports magazine. And if he loves his car, filling a tote with car cleaning supplies will be much appreciated.

    You don't have to spend a lot of money to come up with great Easter basket ideas. But everyone will appreciate the extra effort you have gone through to make their Easter basket just for them. You should have enough ideas to make a great Easter basket for anyone you know.

    Don't stop at family - even friends appreciate a small Easter basket with an item or two stuffed next to a chocolate or two. Use a custom coffee cup for a teacher. As you can see, Easter basket ideas are endless.
