Easter Basket Stuffer Ideas – Alternatives to Sweets
The Easter Bunny will hop on over to your place soon. Are you ready? Get a jump on the spring holiday by shopping now for the perfect Easter basket stuffer ideas and alternatives to sweets.
First, you need a fabulous basket!
This season we’re in love with the plush animal-shaped baskets featuring frogs, bunnies, chickens and lambs! They really are great for boys and girls of any age. And, we’re crushing on the retro-style cloth totes that are oh-so-hot this season. You can grab any of these Easter baskets by shopping at Target online! Use THIS LINK to get free shipping on your $25+ order and 2 percent cash back.
Now, let’s get stuffing!
To keep the holiday healthy, plan to include a mix of edibles, toys and a small gift in each basket. This way you — and the kids — won’t be tempted to overdo it when it comes to sugary treats.
This year go beyond chocolate bunnies and gummy chicks. Pick up pouches of nuts, dried fruits, and flavored sunflower seeds. These snacks are yummy and offer protein and vitamins.
When choosing the chocolates, pick dark chocolate (it’s lower in sugar than milk chocolate) candies and chocolate-covered fruits and nuts. Your little one will satisfy his sweet tooth, and you’ll feel better about all the munching he’s doing on Easter!
Dylan’s Candy Bar is offering free shipping until October 9, 2017 on their You Had Me At Chocolate Collection and the Sweet n’ Sour Mix & Mingle Collection. Otherwise, skip the store and order from Walgreens, Walmart, Target.
Instead of filling the basket to the brim with candy, add in a few whimsical, timeless toys.
- Swirly-patterned bouncy balls
- Colorful sidewalk chalk
- Plastic light-up yo-yos
- Seasonal beaded necklaces
- Temporary tattoos
- Easter patterned pencils
- Bright plastic bunny rings
- Silly Putty
- Mini lotions or body spray
- Mini toy cars
These are just a few healthy Easter basket stuffers to add to your shopping list.
