Candy Free Easter Basket Gifts to Delight the Kids

These candy free Easter basket ideas are so sweet, your kids won’t even miss the candy!

Candy Free Easter Basket Ideas

Easter is coming – and it’s time to start thinking about those Easter baskets! If you’re like me, you don’t want it to be all about the candy (even though it really is), so you’ll look for a few non-candy gifts to throw in for good measure.

It’s easy to go to Target and grab whatever you see from the dollar bins – been there, done that. But the best gift is one that will last beyond the holiday – something handmade or at least well-made and not immediately contributing to the landfill. 

Even though my boys are beyond the Easter gift stage (they still want the candy of course!), I had fun searching for some sweet, candy-free Easter basket gifts that young kids will love!

  1. My kids LOVED chalk. Even at 13 my daughter still colors in the driveway with it!

  2. Okay, the knit chicks are so cute! I may need to buy those for my nieces and send them a little spring treat in the mail!

    1. I love those knit chicks too! My boys are too old to care about them but I might have to order some just for decoration.

  3. Wonderful ideas! Nice to focus on something besides candy : ) Because we are Christian, we also like to give gifts that focus on the spiritual side of the holiday. Always a fan of the rebirth symbols too though like sweet little chickies.

  4. love these! So lovely and it’s great they’re handmade. Every year I make little Easter treasures for my kids. The knitted chickens and eggs are the all time favorites.

    1. I love that you make handmade Easter gifts Penelope – so sweet!
