Plan Ahead For the Perfect Easter Basket

Easter goodie aisles at drug, craft and grocery stores are overflowing with robin eggs and chocolate delights, but if you'd rather bring home a bunch of bunnies then give your children a basketful of candy — the secret to Easter basket success is planning ahead and purchasing one medium sized treat (like a stuffed animal or book that's under $20) and a few healthy snacks or mini toys.

  • Aim for an inexpensive basket like this festive Colored Easter Basket ($6) from Pottery Barn Kids. If you don't want to make a mess skip the fake grass and use tissue paper.
  • Forgo candy and instead fill your basket with toys that will last longer than a single sweet moment. The book Peter Rabbit's Happy Easter ($7) and a snuggly stuffed rabbit are perfect for young tots, while older kids will have springtime bath fun with Tub Tints ($11).
  • Consider purchasing one larger Easter gift instead of a handful of different little trinkets. This Skip Hop Hare Comb & Brush Set ($20) promises entertaining grooming time.
