Who needs the Easter Bunny? We’re making the annual basket-building bonanza easy this year with themed baskets for all ages. Keep it classic with awesome activities for the littles; go big with oversized treats for older kids; give teens stuff they actually want; and treat adults to spa-like goodies. Whether you fill a basket, bucket, or decorative box, these Easter ensembles will put a little spring in their step. The best part? You can order everything — from the basket to the grass to the candy to the extras — straight to your door. 

1. The Better-Than-Candy Basket (for Little Kids)


Deliver the wow factor and skip the massive sugar crash with this balanced basket featuring something to snuggle, things to play with, and a moderate amount of mini candies tucked into plastic eggs that you can use again next year. Much more than a bundle of treats, this basket inspires creativity and play. Plus, the toys and projects will extend the Easter fun with indoor and outdoor activities that will last far longer than the included candy.

This bigger-is-better candy collection turns that feeling up to 11 — not to mention it ensures your gift basket is a dream snack station for days to come! Make this year’s Easter basket the one to remember by filling the base of the container with basket grass, topping it with enough supersized sugary temptations to fill the basket — plus a colorful toy, because more is more — and embellishing any holes with mini candies.
