6 Clever Non-Candy Easter Basket Stuffers
I absolutely love Easter! All of the beautiful spring pastels just make me want to run around outside. But for some, it can be stressful to be playing Easter Bunny and trying to figure out what to stuff your kid's Easter baskets with that isn't just candy or cheap junk that will get thrown away the next day. If you want to give them something pretty and cute, check out some of these unconventional ideas for Easter basket stuffers. I promise they won't disappoint!
1. Reward Cards
Let's face it, it's hard to fit anything in those teeny tiny Easter eggs other than candy. But we all want to avoid the sugar rush and still give something meaningful. That's why I created these cute these cute little reward cards that your kids can cash in for some time spent with mom & dad. These are super fun and easy to DIY on your own as well (or check them out on here to download and print at home: Easter Printable Reward Cards). Plus, they're the gift that keep on giving and allow you to plan time in advance to spend with your kids baking, going out to a movie or the zoo together, or just going for a bike ride around the block.
Are you ready for the world's most adorable plushie!? Slumberkins® has some of the cutest stuffed animals I've ever seen. But what I love is that it's actually more than just another stuffed animal for the toy box. Slumberkins® were designed by a licensed therapist and along with their little rhyme books, they promote healthy routines and positive life skills. They also created Sleepy Peeps (the adorable little chick plushie) that makes the perfect basket stuffer for Easter! You definitely want to check these out or just follow them on instagram for some adorable photos.
3. Fabric Tulips
I love it when my husband brings home fresh flowers and I never thought I would find anything better than that until I stumbled across Jobuko on Etsy. These fabric tulips are not only gorgeous to look at, but they are soft and comfy and they'll last forever! These make for the perfect Easter basket stuffer. They're brightly colored (and they come in multiple colors) and tall so they'll be the perfect background to all of your other gifts. And if you have a little girl, what better way for her to play with flowers without having to deal with thorns or dying leaves. Check out Jobuko for other great fabric fun-sies.
4. Memory Game
When I created these little memory game card sets, I had no idea how popular they would be! But they've been my best seller by far and I think it's because they make such great little gifts. They're so much fun for toddlers and they aren't the typical bright colored plastic toys. Memory game card sets are not only great for play, but also for active learning! Check out the Farm Animal Memory Game set up on my shop or take a peek at some of the other animals.
5. Hey Chickie Soap
Talk about adorable! This cute little jar of hand-made soaps is the perfect little Easter gift for your little chick-a-dees. Not only is it super cute, but it's also super practical -- you can easily make use of this one during their next bath time. It's scented with their best-selling scent "honey bunny" which smells amazing and they're also natural and detergent free. Grab a set or two of Hey Chickie Soaps by SunbasilgardenSoaps (they come in multiple colors) and make your Easter baskets a hit!
6. Pink Hair Bows
And last but not least... There's nothing more practical for your cute little girls than hair ties. But these ones are extra adorable. They are hand-made and hand-tied by Because of Zoe Designs and they come in a variety of patterns and colors. I'm personally in love with their fabrics and the fact that they come in three different sizes (perfect for pig tails, braids, or clip-ins). Check out the Blush Carousel Bow and many more colors and styles.
