How to Create the Perfect Easter Basket

Bright colors, Easter egg hunts, time spent outside with family – nothing says, “spring is here” more than the Easter season. For a kid, waking up on Easter morning to a basket brimming with goodies is an excitingMinnie Mouse-Themed Jim Shore Easter Egg Figurine | Coppinsgifts.com tradition to get the celebration started.

Step 1: Pick out the Basket

This is a step where there is no wrong answer and endless right answers! You can find great deals on baskets at your favorite craft store or you might find some sweet options at a local thrift shop. You can even think outside the basket by choosing an unconventional container, like a planter or terra cotta pot if your child is a little older. Be mindful of size since you want to ensure you can fill the basket or container so it appears welcoming and complete. The Goldilocks approach usually works out – not too big or too small, but just right.

Step 2: Fill the Bottom

Instead of plastic grass fillers, opt for a natural fiber material. There are lots of options including raffia or recycled paper that still comes in bright or pastel colors to match the theme. Whichever you choose, be generous by filling the bottom to create a welcoming bed for the treats and surprises.

Step 3: Add Treats and Surprises

Part of the fun is picking out all the little presents to fill the basket with. Easter-themed chocolates and candies are classic additions that come readily available. Hollow eggs filled with silver dollars or various sums of money always cause excitement. If you go with a garden theme, sachets of seeds to grow in the pot make the gift interactive. You can round everything out with a main gift that is the shining start of the basket! Our website has a variety of stuffed animals, games, and Jim Shore Figurines that will do the job nicely.

Easter, of course, is not about the gifts. The time spent with family is a positive reminder of all the blessings we are fortunate to have. Gather more ideas for your Easter basket creation by visiting CoppinsGifts.com!
