It’s that time of year again: Easter! A holiday celebrated through church services, family get-togethers, and yes, Easter chocolate and egg hunts.
Easter baskets are another staple, packed full of chocolate eggs and bunnies, hot cross buns, fun stuffed toys and more. Putting together the perfect basket that wows your loved ones is the ideal present – and there are plenty of non-chocolate gifts to choose from. If you’re hoping to avoid adding to the overload of chocolate, we have the gift ideas for you! Here are some festive basket stuffer ideas to get you started.
Easter is a time for family get-togethers and a lot of eating, which makes Easter-themed tableware a great gift to add to the basket. Easter-themed tableware is a great gift that acts as the perfect conversation starter. Plus, it can be pulled out again and again for many Easters to come.
You can go for a home-feast themed basket with a complete Easter set that includes everything from plates and knives and forks to napkins. Or, if you prefer to just add a splash of the season, opt for one or two fun gifts like some bunny-themed glassware.
Easter decorations for the house
If your loved one goes all out for holiday decorating or is hosting this year’s Easter event, make their life a little easier with Easter-themed home décor in their basket.
You can go as big or small with this present and include key pieces that will really get them in the festive mood.
An Easter Egg wreath is a great basket stuffer that can go up on their front door to welcome the rest of the family into the house for lunch or dinner. You can also add decorative eggs for a fun scavenger hunt around the house after everyone’s eaten. A good decorating ‘cherry on top’ is some faux bunnies they can place on their counters, drawers or desks.
There’s nothing like a new pair of pyjamas! Bunny-themed sets make a great Easter basket stuffer – especially for little ones. This kid-friendly gift will have everyone in the Easter mood, while also being practical for the months to come.
No matter where you are in the world, a pyjama set is a great gift during changing seasons. Short, cotton pyjama sets are great Easter basket stuffers for your friends in the northern hemisphere as they head into spring and summer, while flannel pyjama sets are ideal for your family and friends nearby, as we approach the colder months.
Keep the whole family entertained this Easter with some well-chosen games to get everyone laughing. After all, is it really a family gathering without a round of the favorite family board game? Indoor games are a great Easter basket stuffer, no matter the weather on the day.
Take your pick from card games, board games, drawing, trivia or even murder mystery, and provide hours of screen-free family fun over the long weekend.
Flower pots and artificial plants
Does your loved one have a green thumb? They’ll love flower pots in their Easter baskets.
Small, weather-resistant, colorful flower pots make the perfect home for some low-maintenance, house-friendly plants. Whether it’s aloe vera on their bookshelf or a cactus on the kitchen windowsill, your loved one will adore a set of flower pots to put them in, and the greenery and life it’ll add to their home. You can even go all out and buy them some plants as well, so they have a complete readymade gift for their home.
If you’re looking to buy a gift for the kiddo’s in your life, activity sets are great Easter basket stuffers, which can vary in theme and content. Whether it’s stationery and colored paper so they can create works of art, magnetic toys that can be used to build almost any structure, sticker sets or science kits, activity sets will keep the youngest members of the family entertained (and even learning without knowing it) for hours on end.
Last but not least, bunny ears are a fun little Easter basket stuffer as they can help get your loved ones into the whimsical spirit of Easter. They can be worn by all family members, big and small, and will definitely give you and everyone else in the family a chuckle.
With these ideas, we’re sure there won’t be a boring Easter basket in sight. Better yet, many of these stuffers can be used year round, long after Easter has come and gone.
