Candy-Free Easter Basket Ideas That Rock

If you’re like us, you’re striving for a candy-free Easter basket (we see you Valentine’s Day class bags of sugar still occupying counter space). Naturally, Easter is less than a week away at this point, so hop to it (sorry, we had to) and get those baskets filled with fun gifts and experiences that won’t make your kids bounce off the walls a la Cirque du Soleil.

These Candy-Free Easter Basket Ideas are Easter Bunny Approved:


We love it when the Easter Bunny brings annual zoo/museum/water park passes or cooking or art class evenings (yay for culture). This year, we heard a rumor he’s bringing swimming lessons to our house (fun and safety for the win)!


Beach and pool season is close (or here, in some parts of the country), so gift items they’ll use all summer long (okay, some technically may not fit inside the basket).

These adorable shark goggles will get your little fish excited to hit the waves.


Available online on for $7.90. Multiple styles (crab, mermaid, pirate, and more).

You can’t go wrong with fun floats. This giant pineapple screams spring.


Available online at for $19.99.

Basketball hoops, bikes, swings, whatever will keep the kiddos busy and outside.


Growing those little minds is always a great idea as is family fun. The Funny Bunny game is perfect for counting skills and color recognition. And hey, there’s always the off chance it will inspire them to eat their veggies.


Ages 5+. Available online at for $15.86.


llama llama books are always a crowd favorite. Babies and toddlers will love the fluffy surprise in llama llama Easter Egg.


Available online at for $5.99.

An Egg-stravaganza.

If you’re reducing the Cadbury quantity, the Tomy Hide & Squeak Eggs are perfect for the littles.


Ages 6 months – 2 years. Available online at for $13.89.

A fun basket to hold (some of) the goodies.

You can pick up a colorful basket pretty much anywhere, but we love the personalized route when possible. Etsy shop FekiFairyCreations has these adorable bunny tail baskets in pink, green, and blue.


Available online at for $14.40.
