  • Easter baskets are the perfect place to stash your goodies during an Easter egg hunt and these are the cutest ones you’ll find.

    An Easter basket, a bit like the best Easter hampers,  is a Stateside tradition that has grown in popularity on this side of the pond in recent years. Traditionally filled with Easter eggs for kids (and even small Easter gifts for kids and Easter games given to loved ones, an Easter basket also doubles as the perfect place for kids to keep the chocolate they find during an egg hunt. As Easter marks the end of Lent, an Easter basket may be a particularly welcome sight if you’ve resisted chocolate or other treats for the preceding 40 days!

    This year, Easter Sunday takes place on 17 April 2022. From Easter decorations to vegan Easter eggs, there are lots of ways to make Easter feel special without spending a fortune. From simple baskets to more elaborate, personalised options that would make a lovely keepsake gift, we’ve found the best Easter baskets money can buy, whatever your budget. All that’s left for you to do is plan an egg hunt and choose which Easter eggs to pop in the basket…

    8. Bunny Basket

    Bunny baskets are multipyling around here like… bunnies! This one isn’t cheap but it found its way onto our best Easter baskets list (and into our hearts) because of its embroidered face and cute little pom-pom tail. We particularly like the sturdy handle – there’s nothing worse than your Easter basket falling apart in the middle of your egg hunt – but our favourite feature is the gingham lining which you tie to form the bunny’s floppy ears. Aww.
