Sugar Free Easter Basket Ideas


With just six days left until Easter, many of us are planning what to serve or bring to the big dinner, as well as how to decorate and add the extra touches that make our holidays memorable. My fellow bloggers and friends Colleen of Souffle Bombay and Heather of Real: The Kitchen and Beyond decided to gather 26 bloggers to share some of our best Easter Entertaining Ideas with you! From Jelly Bean Trees to a Giant Deviled Egg, we’ve got you covered!

To make this #AllThingsEaster roundup even more memorable we have some amazing giveaways as well from John Boose (crafter of incredible cutting boards, butcher blocks and more) , The Spice House (THE online source for incredible spices), Wilton Armetale (maker of both beautiful & functional serving ware), Divine Chocolates (a fair trade, farmer-owned chocolate company) & The Tree Hut (natural body products that do what they say) for a few of our lucky readers!

Follow along via #AllThingsEaster on social media this week and visit our All Things Easter pinterest board for even more fun ideas. (Now if only we had a magic formula to make all those dishes disappear, right?) Happy Easter!!

Sugar Free Easter Basket Ideas

For my contribution to this #AllThingsEaster roundup I'm sharing some fun Sugar Free Easter Basket Ideas. I always find Easter such an easy trap to over do it on the sugar for the kids so I thought I'd share some fun and different ideas for sugar free Easter basket gifts to help inspire you if you're looking to cut back on the sugary treats, too.

Of course I will have some jelly beans and little candies and a chocolate bunny or egg or two. But I also like to mix it up with other non-sugar goodies, too. In recent years the Easter Bunny will usually throw in some spring time outside toys (like chalk and bubbles) as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. These always seem to be a hit with the kids even though they're not candy. So here are my top twenty Sugar Free Easter Basket Ideas to inspire you this season!

1. Bubbles & chalk
It's finally spring and I don't know about you but my kids can never get enough bubbles and chalk this time of year. You can find cute Easter themed chalk and bubbles or just any old kind will do.

2. Hand sanitizers 
You can pick up some really fun hand sanitizers and hand sanitizer holders at Bath & Body Works or even the dollar store.

3. Toothbrush and toothpaste 
I've included a toothbrush and toothpaste in the last few Easter Baskets the easter bunny brought. It's become a tradition and I think my girls get the connection that the Easter Bunny bunny brings a toothbrush to help get rid of the "sugar bugs" that all those jelly beans might create.

4. Easter tissues 
I always grab these at the dollar store and add them to the basket. They're cheap, cute and add a fun seasonal treat to the Easter Basket that the girls can put in their backpacks.

5. Books 
Every year I try to include at least one Easter book in each child's basket. My girls love books and it's a fun excuse to add to their collection and offer another fun non-sugar alternative to the basket. For something different how about Pete the Cat's Big Easter Adventure or The Golden Egg Book or how about There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick (my girls think this book is hilarious!)

6. Stuffed Plush
Ok, so this is a bit controversial in my house these days because we have WAAAY too many stuffed animals. BUT, if you're not struggling with a stuffed animal over population problem in your house then I think you can't go wrong with a little stuffed bunny, lamb or chickie right?

7. Lego Mini Figs Mystery Bags
Are your kids obsessed with Legos and the Lego Movie like mine are? How about adding in a little mini fig mystery bag? I've seen these as cheap as $2.99 at some stores. Kids love these and they're a fun surprise since kids will get to open them to see which figure they got.

8. Dolls (barbie or frozen doll) 
Again, we've got a bit of an issue with being over run with barbie dolls here but if you're not in the same boat, why not throw in a cute little Barbie Doll or Disney princess doll? I hear rumors that you can still get the Elsa doll at Target.

9. Clothes (roll up a cute tee shirt) 
Roll up a cute character T-Shirt (Frozen, Ninja Turtles, Lego Movie, etc) and tie it up with a cute Easter bow and viola!

10. Jewelry
Why not add a cute Easter bracelet or necklace. Or how about a fun spring/easter charm from CHARMT IT! Or a cute piece from the Stella & Dot girls line? Or even make a little Lego necklace for your son or daughter. So many cute jewelry options that would be a perfect special treat in an Easter basket.

11. Movie tickets
My two daughters (ages 3 and 6) are obsessed with movies these days. They love getting to go to the movies and it's a special treat for the whole family. Why not throw in a few movie ticket gift cards to help defray the cost of your next family movie outing?

12. Rainbow loom bands
If your kids are Rainbow Loom fans, why not add some new Rainbow Loom bands to their baskets? Maybe pick up some Easter colored ones for fun!

13. Pens, paper, crayons, glue sticks
Really you can't go wrong with throwing in any sort of art supplies. Kids always need them and they're fun to give new ones during this last stretch of the school year.

14. Puzzles 
Pick up new inexpensive puzzles at the Dollar Store, Kohl's or Five Below. Kids love puzzles and they're a fun activity and a great way to add some bulk to their baskets.

15. Play Doh 
Don't throw rotten easter eggs at me, ok? As a mom I know play doh is a trap to be avoided at all costs mosts days. But sometimes you gotta give in and kids do love it. Add a few small tubs to their basket and then make them play with it outside.

16. Easter Crafts 
Each season I pick up a few kids crafts from Michaels or Joanne's. Why not add a paint your own Easter chime or paint your own Easter bunny ceramic kit to their baskets.

17. Coins 
Seriously, kids think real money is like the coolest thing ever. Even if it is only a quarter. Or splurge and hit the bank for a silver dollar. Put the coins in the plastic eggs and fill their easter baskets with a few.

18. Nail Polish
Pick up the mini nail polish bottles and put one in a plastic easter egg for your little girl. She'll love it.

19. Matchbox Cars 
Throw a matchbox car or two into a small plastic egg as a special surprise for your little guy. He'll love it.

20. Coupons
Write up cute little easter coupons that your kids will find awesome like "Stay Up Late an Extra 30 Minutes" or "Skip A Bath" or something fun that they will think is just SO cool. Kids will love the extra thought you put into "giving in to them" just this once as a special Easter treat!

I hope this gives you some inspiration for adding some sugar free options to your child's easter basket this year. I'd love to hear what your favorite sugar free options are too!
