Like many families, we are feeling the pinch of inflation. And, with a large family, and young adults that can’t afford to move into their own homes, I need to be mindful of my spending. So, Easter will be less over the top than it has been in previous years. Since I can’t be the only one being more cost conscious, I thought I would share some affordable Easter Basket Ideas.
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
I love to give people gifts. I genuinely love it more than I love to receive gifts. And, Easter is no exception. I mail my aunt, and great-aunt and great-uncle Easter baskets with eggs hidden in the packing paper. Plus, my boys, our pets, my husband, my mom, and my sister and niece and nephew each get baskets.
Several years ago I shared more Easter Baskets and ideas on filling them. My boys all have the same baskets they have had since they were babies, but I like to give reusable tote bags or coolers that can be used well after Easter to the rest of the family. And these Easy Easter Basket Ideas are perfect for extended family!
Affordable Easter Basket Ideas
I am trying to limit myself to a $30 budget for everyone’s baskets this year. And, I think I might be able to pull it off! I filled two baskets today to share, and I was well within budget for them both.
The first basket is similar to what I will send to my aunt. I included a small bottle of one of our shared favorite drinks, Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. Then, I added a coffee mug I made with my Cricut and Mug Press. Next, I added small travel size lotions (I actually got the lotion free with a coupon at Bath and Body Works!), and hair care products. Finally, I added some of her favorite candies. This basket came in right around $30 and I am thrilled with it!
The second basket I filled was for one of my boys. I started with a small bag of his favorite candy. Then, I added some fun little toys for him, because you are never too old for toys. I added fun rubber chicken flingers, a Hot Wheels Car, a small Etch-A-Sketch, some Silly Putty, a bunny ball shooter, and a few pieces of loose candy. The basket is full, and I know he will be happy on Easter morning!
