There are three things you should know about my feeling on Easter Baskets:
- I’m on team “it needs to fit inside”
- I’m not a huge fan of junk fillers for the sake of filling it.
- I use the same basket every year! Why is anyone buying new ones unless last year’s broke?
Since Easter is in the spring and usually right on the cusp of it getting warm, I tend to fill Easter baskets with useable goodies for the upcoming spring and summer season. Just like I’ve done in the past few years, I’m sharing exactly what I’ve included in my 7.5 and 9.5 year old’s baskets and where I bought it in case you need some ideas for your kids.
- Romper – I usually get them a dress or romper every year and this year’s selection of cute rompers at Old Navy did not disappoint! Doesn’t Brielle’s black with white daisies print give you such 90s Donna Martin vibes? And Hailey’s is full on tropical vibes.
- Flip flops – I have big feet for a shorter person (9.5/10 and only 5 ft 3 inches) and my girls seem to be following in my footsteps, literally. They need new flip flops for summer for their ever growing feet so what better time than to get them now!?
- Skorts – I usually include a bathing suit in the baskets, but this year I’ve been having sizing issues with my oldest. I discovered Lands End has mix and match bathing suit separates in SLIM sizes! In order to get free shipping I added these cute skorts to the cart and know my girls will love the adorable patterns.
- Polarized Sunglasses – I opted for a (hopefully) little sturdier and appropriately sized pair of sunglasses for this summer since most of the “kid” glasses in Target seem to be too small. I ordered size 46 mm which I know will fit my 7 year old but I’ll let you know the update after Easter if it fits my 9 year old. Otherwise they do sell a 49 mm style as well.
- Magic 8 Ball – They don’t yet have these staple childhood toys and I thought they might get a kick out of the never ending fun of these faux fortune tellers.
- Mom and Me Drawing Book – I picked this up at Five Below around Christmas time and have held onto it for a future gifting need. It includes some drawing/writing prompts to complete as a mom and me activity that I know the girls will love. They have lots of good writing prompt style books in their center activity book section so check them out!
- Larger Water Bottles – My kids have 2 large gallon jugs they use for all days sports and then smaller 16 oz bottles they use for school/meals. But for this year’s basket, I picked up these middle range 32 oz stainless steel dishwasher safe water bottles from Five Below. I still want it to have a straw like spout to lessen the issue of spillage from a large open mouth. After Easter I’ll add their names on them with waterproof vinyl so stay tuned for that future social share!
- Chocolate Bunny – DUH. Brielle is currently rocking a palette expander and can’t have jelly beans, Peeps or many other traditional Easter candies so I made sure to get her a nice chocolate bunny treat she can gnaw on.
