Times have definitely changed since my kids were little.  Filling Easter baskets used to be pretty easy, and now I have to think a little more about what I am going to put in the kid’s baskets.  Here are a few of our recent favorites:

Art / craft supplies

If your child is into doing a certain type of art or craft, you could get some supplies to help them with their projects.  For example, my daughter loves Copic markers, so we got her a few colors that she has been looking for.

Socks

We like giving fun socks once in a while as gifts, so when I see a cool pair, like sushi socks, I grab them for our Easter baskets.

Bath Bombs

My kids seem to go in phases with wanting bath bombs, but these can be a nice treat.

Books

Both of my kids love books, and it is nice to pick out something special for their easter baskets.

Room accessories

There are so many neat accessories out there, from string lights to light boxes to wall tapestries.

Outdoor games

T-shirts

With summer on the way, you can’t really go wrong with t-shirts.  If your tween has a favorite show, this is a good chance to find show merchandise.

Food

While my kids like candy, there are foods they really like too, whether it is something like Pocky or even a salty treat like flavored popcorn or a funky flavor of chips.

Candy

I limit how much candy I give, but a chocolate bunny, some peeps, and some gum are usually the perfect gift!
