I love Easter. I love getting together with family. I love the good food. I love attending Church on Easter Sunday. I love egg hunts and I really love Easter baskets. I remember being a kid and waking up Easter morning with a basket full of goodies. It was like Christmas all over again. Being a child born in December, it was the one other time of the year for little gifts.
Now I’m a mom and it’s my turn to make sure my kids get to feel that joy and excitement. If you’re looking for some great ideas of things to put in your families baskets this year, look no more. We have found a few of our favorite Easter basket ideas and shared them with you here.

Transform a pack of new Gold Toe socks into a darling spring bouquet! Pick out fun bright colors for print or soft pastels, either way you’ll cheer up their Easter basket this year. For a perfect basket filler, add Gold Toe’s Turn-Cuff Eyelet socks or go for a splash with a tie-dye style! Matching will be a piece of cake with the smart EZ MATCH sizing – just count the number of gold rings on the toe to pair the socks effortlessly.
Give a classic Easter basket treat an easy upgrade! Just start with 1 box of Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets. Use the Krimpets as the base of the treat. Cut a small slit into the treat to make room for a Peep bunny as a driver. Separate two mini Oreos and use each individual cookie as a tire wheel. Finally, add a chocolate covered pretzel as a steering wheel. Tastykake has a variety of yummy treats that are perfect for the Easter basket! Our favorites are the classic Tastykake Easter Snowballs covered with a pink coconut marshmallow coating!
Their Easter baskets will give a whole new splash of color with Pilot Pen! Add their FriXion Colors erasable marker pens that will take adult coloring pages to a whole new level.
