Easter basket ideas have always been difficult for me to plan. Whether it's an easter basket gift for a toddler or a unique basket idea for a teen, I want the gifts for Easter to have meaning. I’ll be honest – gift giving isn't a talent of mine. My mom, on the other hand, has always been great at giving gifts. When my brother and I were growing up, she gave thoughtful presents not just for birthdays and Christmas, but for the “minor” holidays like Valentine’s Day. She always made sure we had a meaningful gift at Easter (although, to be honest, I don’t think we had official “Easter baskets”).
While I’ll probably never be as good as my mom at giving gifts, when I do buy or make gifts for my own children, I want them to celebrate the Christian meaning and celebration of Easter. I also don’t want to spend a fortune. As Easter approaches, I decided to start looking for Easter basket ideas and gifts for my kids’ that I know won’t break our budget.
If you’re looking for meaningful, inexpensive gifts to buy or make for your children, here are 20 fun ideas to fill up those Easter baskets!
