Speaking of playtime, it’s impossible to go wrong when you stuff an Easter basket with your kids’ favorite toys. From stuffed plush toys to coloring books and puzzles, there’s no better way to welcome the season.

Of course, it wouldn’t be an Easter gift without candy. Whether you opt for creme-filled bon bons in pretty pastels or their favorite candy bars and other chocolates, Easter sweets are a must. Classic jelly beans are the perfect addition because they taste great and add loads of springtime color.

From bouncy balls to foil-wrapped candies, everyone loves an Easter basket and its sweet, springy contents. Whatever your gift recipient’s favorite candies and toys, they’ll love the idea that you chose and assembled their Easter baskets just for them.
