50 Non-Candy Easter Baskets Ideas

*This post contains affiliate links.

You may have seen my post last week on what will be appearing in the girls Easter baskets this year. If not, you can read it here. But when I was thinking of items to go in my girls Easter baskets, I was a little stumped. I thought about things they need, things they want and then things I think they would like. And I figured I would share some of those with you all. Just in case you were stumped like me. I linked to a few of our favorites.

  1. My kids are getting band-aids, socks, chapstick for non toy related items but this list has me wanting to get more!

  2. Such good ideas! I'll have to remember this for my nephews

  3. Oh these are great ideas. I never really got candy in my Easter basket as a child and the kids all use to make fun of me for it. ha. I have never been a big candy eater so my Mom got me other things. I once got a flat iron in my Easter Basket. haha

  4. I always loved my easter basket growing up because my mom always would put in fun stuff other than candy. I can remember getting ALBUMS in them. #oldschool haha

  5. So many great ideas! Toothbrushes and socks are the perfect everyday practical items. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  6. These are great ideas! I'm trying to come up with good ideas for an 8 year old boy!

  7. Nice! This is perfect for us.

  8. SUCH great ideas, Danielle! And dang, I don't think I've ever thought to put PJs in our kids' baskets! I usually put a shirt or dress for each of them, but I don't know why it's never occurred to me to do PJs!

  9. You have so many good ideas! Growing up we always got a little candy and a whole lot of other stuff. My mom always got a good jump on our spring/summer wardrobe for easter, and definitely some sandals and a few toys or whatnot. That is what I plan to do with Zoe too!

    1. This is exactly why I put this out there. It gives so many ideas. I tried to mimic what my mom did as well. I want to keep the traditions going!!!

  10. Lots of fun ideas here! When it comes to little "dolls" or something, I love the itty bitty ones from Hallmark. You can get some favorite characters there!! :)


    1. That is a great idea. I didn't even think about the itty bitty dolls. I will check those out.

  11. Sidewalk chalk was always a huge hit with mine. Last year I got giant eggs and filled with stuff for the college boys they needed like the body wash, shampoo, etc and then I put cash in littler eggs inside it. They loved it. I even rolled up T-shirt’s for each and new swim trunks. This is a GREAT list!

    1. My girls love chalk as well. I love that you still did Easter for the boys last year. I bet they loved it.

  12. This could not have come at a better time, as I'm at a loss of how to finish filling up Serena's basket without candy since she doesn't eat it yet. Definitely picking up some sidewalk chalk and her favorite Annie's Bunnies <3

  13. All great ideas! We used to go all out at Easter, but it was getting like a mini-Christmas, so we are cutting back this year. Each kid will get a little bit of candy, a book, something to wear for Spring/Summer, a few dollar spot items, a small outdoor item (chalk/bubbles/ball), and one small item that they have been wanting (like a Barbie or water bottle).

  14. Such cute ideas! Thanks for sharing!
