This year, Easter falls on April 17, 2022. Are you ready? Whether you’re 5 or 35, you still look forward to getting an Easter basket from loved ones. While you wait to receive, you can prepare and plan for what you’ll be giving the special people in your life. If you have the tenacity and drive to make your own Easter basket from scratch, more power to you. If you don’t want to go store after store building this seasonal basket that’ll get ransacked rather quickly anyway, go the fast route: an Easter basket that’s already been created for you. And the best part is, they still look kind of DIY’d.
So where do you begin? Ask yourself the following questions before you head to checkout:
- Who am I giving this Easter basket for?
- How old is my Easter basket recipient?
- If food will be included in the gift basket, does the Easter basket recipient have any dietary restrictions?
- How much do I want to spend?
- Do I want the actual basket to be reused?
Once you have factored in those considerations, it’s time to make a purchase. Here are some of our favorites by category:
