Full disclosure, while this is not a sponsored post, I have included affiliate links for the items I truly love. Thank you for helping me support my family.
As per usual, I was walking around the aisles of Target with no real purpose other than to stress out my husband and buy chocolate to hide from my children. And with all this useless energy, I decided to make a list of all of the best Easter things that Target came out with this season.
Side note, if you didn’t already know, Target has a curbside option now and if you’re tight on time you or heavy on kids, you can place an order online and it will be ready within two hours. I’ve never actually used this service… because Target… but you know, it’s there. (It’s also pretty convenient in this circumstance to be able to get Easter Basket things without the kids seeing what you’re buying.)
So anyway, here are my Easter faves… now go shop, and be hoppy.
POM POMS! All of the pompoms! Don’t question it. Just do it. Pom poms for every season because they make everything a million times more festive and fun. Snatch up this one! Also a really great alternative (OR ADDITION!!) to this one, is this also super cute Decorative Egg Garland. Okay, this is my last garland related item, but these LED String lights are a must have! Add them to your kids room to make their space a little more festive and special for the occasion.
JK - this Wooden Garland is my last LAST garland related item.
In my option, one of the easiest ways to transform your space for new seasons and/or holidays, is by adding throw pillows, wreathes, and little decor accents. They have absolutely no prep time, and can be thrown into a storage bin after the holiday to be saved for next year. No muss, no fuss. Here a few of my favorites from this season: Easter Egg Wreath, Faux Daffodil Wreath, Easter Bunny in Glass Cloche, Vintage Easter Blue Truck, Bunny Lumbar Pillow, Bunny Square Pillow, and this tiny little bunny figurine.
Let’s get one thing clear RIGHT MEOW, there are few things I love more in this world than pink milk glass and believe wholeheartedly that it can AND SHOULD be enjoyed all year around. However I also acknowledge that not everyone lives in a vintage dream world but you should at least enjoy it in the spring because it’s perfect for it. Hearth & Hand has a couple really cute pieces right now: 2pk Milk Glass Cupcake Stands, Milk Glass Scalloped Bowl, and my fave, a Milk Glass Scalloped Cake Stand.
Easter Basket Goodies
I have a full Easter Basket blog post coming soon, and I’ll link it here when I finish, but in the meantime, here are some great ideas from Target.
So when it comes to things like Easter baskets, I like to pack them away and save them to use again next year. It seems so wasteful not to and as much as I like shopping, I don’t like wasting money. Because of this, I like to buy semi-neutral baskets that can grow with your kids and have things added to it (if that’s your thing) for each stage.
I like this white Spritz one because it’s sturdy and only $8 for the medium sized option. It also comes in several colors. I’ve also linked this cheaper but also cute Herringbone Easter Basket, and this Wire Basket with Wooden Handle.
I’m not huge on filling their baskets with candy. I’d rather get them one or two really yummy treats (because is it really an Easter basket without a Easter Bunny chocolate), and then get fun stuff they will enjoy longer than a few seconds. I usually get them these Lindt Bunnies. This year I’ll be getting Amelia this dairy-free alternative because her minimal dairy diet has now become no-dairy diet. For those who have other dietary restrictions, these bunnies are also gluten free, nut free, and soy free.
You can never go wrong with putting books in Easter Baskets. I got two little ones for Atticus’ basket already and I’ll be getting some for the girls as well.
For your favorite teen or pre-teen, it can be a little more challenging to fill their baskets with things you used to, so don’t try. Instead, get them things that they actually want. I don’t know about you, but I say ‘no’ a lot during the year, so holidays I like to get them things they would really like.
For your preschool and elementary school aged babes, this is such a fun age! Everything is so dang exciting and still so magical. It’s such a fun age to buy for because they just light up with joy. Amelia loves art and being outside, as do most kids I think, so here are some great picks for that.
Here are some of my favorite preschool and elementary school aged favorites: Colorful sidewalk chalk, Hatchimals, Colorful headbands, Glitter crayons, and a Gardening Set (perfect to go with the We are the Gardners book)!
The last age group I’m hunting for the best of the best for, is for your littlest babes. They don’t quite know what’s going on yet so it’s a great time to mix their basket with both fun items and items that they need, obviously adjusting more or less for their current development level.
I’d love to hear what all of your favorites are! Do you have any Easter must-haves? As Amelia would say after watching way more than the appropriate amount of YouTube: Let me know in the comments below!
