Personalize Your Basket

1. Customized Daisy Sunglasses (Age: 2-7 year olds)

Arriving just as spring bursts into bloom, Easter Sunday, in part, celebrates the re-emergence of life after the long and dark winter.

While children gear up to go on Easter hunts in the neighborhood, parents can start writing out lists of innovative Easter basket stuffing ideas. Over the years, Easter baskets have evolved to not only carry traditional gifts of painted eggs, but also fun treats to help celebrate spring. 
To make the holiday a memorable and enjoyable experience for kids, parents can personalize Easter baskets with gifts that not only make their little one beam with delight but also encourage them to put their thinking cap on.

To help you find unique and exciting Easter basket stuffers, we’ve curated a list of fun learning kits and games that are certain to make Easter special and unforgettable for your little one.
