Budget Friendly Easter Basket Ideas

With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking Easter Baskets. The grocery and toy store isles are filled with vibrant color this time of year and I absolutely love it. As a former art teacher, I never shy away from bold colors. Spring is my happy place!



When thinking about Easter Bunny Baskets, I always like to incorporate something faith related. Easter is a celebration of new life. Not only cute little bunnies and chicks, which I love, but also that Jesus died on the cross, then rose from the dead 3 days later to show us that we can have eternal life in Heaven with him. His sacrifice and everlasting grace is not one to be glossed over.

I love incorporating a book that teaches a Biblical lesson. This is the first Easter where my book, “The Giant Fish & Jonah” is available to add to baskets!! I am so excited and hope that the story of trust, loyalty, and obedience blesses many homes. To God be the glory always. My book can be found in paperback or hardback on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Now that my oldest son is reading, we are giving him his first Big Boy Adventure Bible. He has been wanting one, and I cannot wait to see his sweet face when h≤e notices it in his basket.

Budget Friendly Easter

Everything else was found at my second home, Target! Most items came from the fabulous Dollar Spot. I mean… if you don’t love the Target Dollar Spot, I’m not sure if we can be friends. Just kidding… kind of. They have Easter basket goodies and decorations galore. You can find something for every kiddo. I snagged bunny bubbles, a bunny sling shot, a themed tick tack toe board, chocolate bunnies, Cadbury eggs, and squishy chick toy.

In the Easter section at the back of the store, I grabbed these monogrammed basket liners for only $4!! I wanted to us my baskets from childhood, which are pink, so I’m using the blue liner in them for the boys. I think it’s the perfect touch.

Outside of the book, everything I purchased was under $5 each. Most were about $3. I call that a win!
