With these 50 + Easter Basket Ideas you can easily create beautiful and affordable Easter baskets whether for babies, child, tween, teen or adult!
Easter is one of my very favorite holidays because of our family traditions that we have created. Since starting my own family we have created our own family traditions, in addition to hiding baskets, that we make sure we do every year. Ours are a mix of our old childhood family traditions and new traditions. And I encourage everyone to feel free to forge their own paths and create whichever traditions they can dream up!

The night before we leave out all our Easter baskets and paper grass basket filler so that the Bunny can reuse the same ones year after year.

We also leave a carrot and a note out for Mr Easter Bunny. Thankfully for the Bunny, Chayce has yet to grill him with a thousand questions like she does to Santa. And yes, she expects hand written responses from Santa. Every. Year. Fingers crossed that she doesn’t decide to start quizzing the Bunny too!
Mom and Dad also hide large reusable paper mache eggs with goodies inside.
After all the loot has been found and we have eaten some breakfast (in addition to all the chocolate), we head down to Grandpa and Grandma’s house to continue the celebration and smash real eggs over each other’s heads! Seriously, we do. If you’ve never heard of cascarones, check out my post all about it here.
Easter baskets + Easter Basket Ideas
The kids always wake up to find that the Bunny has visited and brought them baskets to find.
