30 Gifts for Easter Baskets that don’t Include Candy


Candy seems like the go-to item for Easter baskets.  So instead of candy get items for Easter that your kids can have fun with over and over.  It’s better to give a gift kids can play with rather than eat.  Believe me, I love chocolate, but these items will last longer and bring joy to your kids.  Surprise your kids with these items your children are sure to love. Use this list to find the perfect gifts for Easter.  Most of the items listed you can use for children of all ages.  Some of the items are geared toward younger children.  Many of these items you can get between $5 and $10.
