I love coming up with creative Easter Basket Ideas and making fun Easter baskets every year! Easter baskets can be more than just candy and plastic eggs. You can really get creative with them using themes, thinking of things your kids need, or inspiration from a recent or upcoming trip. The possibilities are endless! I also love to think outside the basket (see what I did there?) and fill things other than baskets! See more of those ideas below!

Below is a compilation of all my fun ideas for Easter baskets that I’ve shared over time. I hope you get inspired by some ideas you love! Happy Easter basket-making to you!

10 Awesome Easter Basket Ideas

1. Shark Themed Easter Basket

A shark themed Easter basket is great for little boys and little girls! This Easter basket idea was inspired by my 7 year old nephew and a trip to the Florida Aquarium. If your little one is a shark or ocean animal lover, this Easter basket might be perfect!  

The “basket” I used for this theme is great to repurpose as a toy or book bin! To go along with the shark theme, I added water toys, a shark hooded towel, and even a music-playing bubble maker. This Easter basket is the perfect fun in the sun basket to open the Spring season!

2. Giant Golden Egg Easter Basket

If you’re tired of the same old wicker baskets for Easter, this is a great way to break away from that tradition with something your kids can reuse. 

These easter eggs are so cute and fun to fill and your kids will love refilling them later with all sorts of other toys. I filled this one with some spring themed goodies like sandals, beach toys, Easter toys, and Easter treats like peeps! I also chose a swimsuit for each of my daughters according to their favorite things!

These little girl Easter basket ideas scream Spring time. That is kind of my go to theme with my girls for Easter since it tends to mark the time of year we start getting out in the sun and having lots of fun. I love using items other than baskets to fill all the items in. Here I used these adorable rain boots and I love that it doesn’t only look cute but it’s versatile too.

This garden theme was so much fun to put together! I included a gardening tool kit, tiny little planter pots, and some treats too!
