Gifting Kids and Pets

For some of us, Springtime is all about new blooms, better temperatures and even refreshing the home’s decor. But it is also the season when we celebrate Easter. And to make sure I’m all set this year, I’ve started collecting some items for this holiday a little early. While I’m pretty sure that the first thing that came into your mind was an “Easter table setting”, you’ll be as surprised as I was with these great finds I scored at HomeGoods and how ideal they are for Kid’s Easter baskets.

Basket Options

On my latest trip to HomeGoods I was able to find some beautiful Easter baskets with the usual bunny and chicken motif. So cute for kids! The variety of options in color and sizes was incredible! Everywhere I looked there was one basket that I like even more. Let me tell you that I had a tough time deciding between so many beautiful baskets. While I brought home some of these cute bunny baskets, I also found some out-of-the-ordinary options.

Galvanized aluminum planters had me at hello! We all know that after a couple of weeks after Easter, kids tend to loose interest in their baskets; so why not give one that we can expand its life and use.

Another great option were these small wicker baskets. I love these because later on they can be use for storing toys or even in the laundry room.

I couldn’t resist these garlands! You can used them to add as accents to simple baskets (like the one below), over the mantle or in kid’s room.

Fillers for the Baskets

While we can always use those colorful plastic or paper grass we’ve seen everywhere, let’s think out of the box and maybe give Spanish moss and natural wood excelsior a chance. I’ve prepare some baskets with these alternatives and it brings them to another level! Another option would be to add silk flowers for those baskets that we want to give a more delicate look.

Plastic eggs are also great basket fillers because the fill in any remaining gaps. But I like to mix them with these cardboard (or ceramic) alternatives (from HomeGoods) to add a unique detail to the baskets.

Baskets for the Littlest Ones

When preparing these baskets, the only word I could think about was “cuteness”. These baskets are meant for little girls or boys who like big plush toys, kids books, and candy.

My favorite basket was the one with the little bunny! I added some silk flowers (from HomeGoods) and a pop-up card.

For the Younger Ones

I love the idea of using galvanized buckets as baskets. These great alternatives provide a stronger container and, as I mentioned before, can be re-used after the holiday has ended.

For these two I use moss and the natural wood excelsior as fillers because I wanted to project a more natural style. Faux succulents, fabric carrots and of course, lots of candies were my option in these basket arrangements.

While these are only some ideas on how you can prepare your children’s Easter baskets, always try personalize them. You can always add that special and memorable item that speaks about the holiday and keeps your love one’s taste in mind. And of course – keep it fun!
