My boys love candy —doesn’t every child? Before deciding what should go into your children’s Easter basket, consider the type of gift you would like to give.  Are you looking for an Easter gift that can be used for all seasons or at least into summer, or are you searching specifically for an Easter themed gift?

  1. Rainbow Crayon Gifts

Rainbow crayons are a fun and colorful gift that will encourage creativity in young children. These unique crayons are made recycled crayons and handmade in a way so each stroke produces a vibrant rainbow effect. Rainbow crayons from Art 2 the Extreme come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from simple chunky letter crayons to intricate designs like stars and hearts. Any shaped crayons are sure to be a hit with any young artist in your life and a kids crayon gift makes for great Easter basket stuffers!

  1. Stuffed Animals

Stuffed animals are a classic gift that is perfect for Easter baskets. From cute bunnies to cuddly chicks, there are plenty of adorable stuffed animals that will make a great addition to any Easter basket. Look for soft, high-quality plush toys that are safe for young children to play with. Our favorite cuddly creatures to include come from our friends at Slumberkins, which create products and books around teaching social-emotional skills and affirmations for children. 

  1. Easter Bubble Bath Bombs

Easter-themed bubble bath bombs are a fun and unique gift idea that kids are sure to love. These colorful bath bombs come in a variety of Easter-inspired shapes, from bunnies to eggs, and they release a delightful aroma and plenty of bubbles when dropped in the bath. This is a great way to make bath time more fun for kids!

  1. Great Easter Basket Stuffers

Small toys and trinkets are great Easter basket stuffers. Consider adding items like mini figurines, puzzles, stickers, and temporary tattoos to your child's Easter basket. These small gifts are inexpensive, but they can provide hours of entertainment for kids, especially if you are taking an Easter road trip to Grandma's house!

Shopping for Easter ideas for grandchildren? What can I send my grandchildren for Easter? 

 As a mom, I absolutely love the unique gift ideas that family and grandparents gift to my children. I specifically love Easter gifts that are not a one-time use and LOVE experience gifts, but if you are looking for the perfect Easter gift that will be the “standout” and also support an independent maker or small business, here are 5 of my favorite small shops and brands to shop for the best Easter Basket ideas for kids.

1. Lovelane Designs

Their playful kids costumes, superhero capes, and adorable accessories are high-quality and long-lasting. These can easily withstand years and years of creative play and be passed down to littles to come. 

 2. Mouse Loves Pig

This is my go to shop for kids travel entertainment ideas, baby shower gift ideas, and open-ended play. My boys love the rainbow ribbon wands and the themed pretend play sets. Personalization is a fun, added bonus! 

3. Punch of Color

If you are looking for unique party favors that are also a fun kids arts and crafts activity, Punch of Color creates colorful sun catcher DIY kits that can be purchased individually or in party packs for favors or class gifts. The sun catcher kits come with everything you need + instructions. I reuse the finished kids artwork as holiday decorations and add to our art decor collection each year! 

 4. Young Wild and Friedman

Let their imagination run wild with open play, screen-free sensory kits. I absolutely LOVE the founder story and journey of Julie Friedman and have been a supporter of her sensory dough kits since the beginning. She is the original creative behind the sensory dough kits and you can find a theme for almost any occasion when shopping for toddler gift ideas or kids birthday gifts. 

 5. Make Bake

If you love to decorate cookies, cupcakes, and cakes with kids, Make Bake is a fun addition to your Easter decorations and Easter baking supplies. Make Bake is home to Stickies®, an edible decorating sticker (and actually tastes good). Now creating themed easter cupcakes and cookies is a little easier with littles decorating them with the use of their beautiful, edible stickers. I guess this recommendation borders “candy”, but I look at this more of an experience type of gift where families can bake and decorate with their kids in a safe and fun way!
