Ticktock! It's time to build Easter baskets!

6 elements of the perfect Easter basket

  1. Easter basket. Select a basket that is wide enough to hold all the goodies it will contain. Choose a basket in pastel colors, a natural color or a favorite character. Or consider a personalized basket that can be reused year after year.
  2. Chocolate bunny. The Easter basket would not be complete without a chocolate Easter bunny. Whether it’s milk, dark, white or even vegan—a chocolate bunny is a must-have. 
  3. Favorite Easter candy. Start to customize the basket goodies with favorite candy. This way you can customize the basket for each child. Choose from favorite Easter candies like Cadbury eggs, jelly beans, gummies, M&Ms, Reese’s peanut butter eggs and Peeps.
  4. Plastic eggs. For added color and fun use plastic eggs to store smaller candies or small toys. 
  5. Toys & activities.  Including a fun activity or toy in the basket helps the basket still feel like a gift, even when the candy is all eaten. It can also add a personal touch. Whether it’s a small book, a cute plush stuffed animal or a small play kit, pick a toy or two to complete the basket.
  6. Easter basket grass. Fill the basket with fun and colorful Easter grass. Varieties are available in plastic or paper, in bright colors or natural hues.
