the Easter Bunny will be hopping around the corner in just a few weeks, and it's time to start thinking about what he is going to fill the kiddies baskets with. whenever i fill my boys baskets with candy, they never eat it...and that is probably a good thing. the past few years i have limited the candy and put a few fun non-candy items in their baskets. i don't like to spend a lot of money on Easter basket fillers, as i am not a huge fan of the Easter Bunny on this special holiday. i usually just put a pair of flip flops a small trinket they have been wanting, sometimes i even include a swim suit because i am going to have to get them one as soon as summer is here anyways.
here are some gifts i have found this year that i think would make great basket fillers. i will probably include one or two of these in their baskets along with so candy...because Easter candy is the best. if they don't eat it, i will. i thought i would share my picks in case you needed some inspiration.
1) LEGO Painting Easter Eggs Set - my boys love LEGO, and this Easter inspired set is sure to be a fun favorite on Easter. the mini figures are painting LEGO eggs with a paintbrush and pallete. how cute.
2) Shwings - these cool wings attach to your shoes and make your shoes stand out! there are over 150 styles in an array of fun shapes and colors. Shwings have been spotted on many celebrity kids, including David and Victoria Beckman’s sons Romeo and Cruz, Gwen Stefani’s boys Zuma and Kingston, Heidi Klum’s daughter Lou, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and many others. these are my fave!!!!!
