Gift Ideas to Fill The Kiddos' Easter Baskets

Easter is right around the corner. How do you celebrate? We believe in the Easter bunny and I love giving my kids baskets. They have personalized ones that they set out the night before. We also get together with all of my combined family and have a huge Easter egg hunt.

We love to read a book I have explaining the importance of the holiday as well. Everyone brings a dish and we have a wonderful lunch too. I love how it has grown. It started out as me just wanting to make sure that I have a special holiday for my mom and now it has grown to so much family getting together and celebrating. Since Easter is so close, I have compiled a list of great gift ideas to fill the kiddos' Easter baskets!

Some items were received complimentary for consideration. All opinions are my own.
