Another year has come and gone and it’s now time to think about what to put in those Easter baskets this year! Easter basket stuffers are one of my favorite things to buy next to stocking stuffers at Christmas time.
We are excited to introduce our 2014 Must Have Easter Basket Stuffer List! All the products are natural, organic and ecofriendly but won’t break the bank to buy them.
These bath bombs, salts and body products from Smitten are perfect for tween and teen girls. Shaped like cake pops, cupcakes, shakes and gelato they make the perfect gift for the growing girl. (Who am I kidding? I would love one of these!) The products are made from natural ingredients and their packaging is recyclable. Prices range from $3.99 for a cake pop to $20 for gift sets. You can get these delivered to you via mail, or by doing a store search to see if there is one close to you.
What Easter basket wouldn’t be complete without some chocolate
for Mom or Dad to steal out of the baskets when the kids aren’t looking? Go with Fair Trade chocolate companies that make sure that chocolate stays the way it should be–pure and ethical.
Consider grabbing some organic Easter chocolate from Mama Ganache. You can go the no work method by buying a completely done Easter basket, or opt for buying smaller bags of candy. Prices range from $4 and up.
Allison’s Gourmet has a large assortment of vegan chocolates perfect for kids with dairy allergies or vegan children too. For kids with dairy allergies, you can also grab some chocolate covered marshmallows (also vegan) from
Of course, if you are a peanut butter lover, the organic peanut butter crunch eggs from Sjaak’s include an ornate handmade flower on every egg. Sjaak’s sells these for only $4.95.
Candy is a popular gift for Easter baskets, and there are a lot of great varieties available. One of our favorite candies are from Yum Earth Organic. While they have a great supply of suckers and jelly beans, our kids recently fell in love with their gummy bears. And who couldn’t with flavors like pomegranate pucker and mango tango? We also love that you can find them at health food stores and even at Walgreen’s.
Surf Sweets sells a brand of jelly beans in smaller packets around Easter time, and are easy to find at most major health food stores. The jelly beans are organic and perfectly portioned if you don’t want your kids going overboard on sweets.
Organic cotton candy with flavors like apple pie, almond latte, original and strawberry make Fluff it Up cotton candy the candy of choice to put in your child’s Easter basket.
Glee Gum is the perfect all natural gum with a classic timeless look. You can find it at candy stores and health food stores. They even have a fun kit for older kids where they can make their own gum. Glee Gum includes fun flavors like wild watermelon, peppermint and tangerine. Our favorite? Try the penny sample pack that gives you 8 packs to try for only .08! You can also find a downloadable coupon on their blog good for .75 off one pouch.
If you are opting for the DIY method, our homemade healthy pixie sticks are a crowd pleaser. They always earn rave reviews.
We fell in love with wood toys after buying some for our toddler. They are ecofriendly and so much durable than the plastic toys. Choose from this pretty maple wand for your princess, a yo yo for your aspiring sports enthusiast, or cute mushroom rattles for your baby. All of these and many other well priced ecofriendly toys are available for only $3 and up at Mighty Nest.
We are loving the beautiful printable packs from Neskita. For only $7 you can enjoy a town, farm, first aid kit, tea party, gardening set or grocery store for hours of role playing fun.
These baby chick crayons from Doodler Farms are adorably nestled inside an egg carton to ensure they stay safe and warm until they reach your Easter basket. We love the textured look of the chicks and think they may be almost too adorable to color with!
Hopscotch kits are a great way to get kids out of the house and playing outside. Hopscotch kits are easy to make or purchase. They usually include several pieces of chalk and several small beanbags.You can make the beanbags yourself and occasionally you can find the hopscotch kits at the dollar store. You could also use this hopscotch kit by 4 One More that uses upcycled jean pockets to make bean bags.
One of our favorite things to put in our Easter baskets are snacks! A great alternative to sugary sweets, the kids love packing their Easter basket snacks in lunches for days after Easter ends. Annie’s is the leader in perfect snacks for filling Easter baskets with their bunny crackers and fruit snacks. Their gifts are great for toddlers to tweens and can be found at most major retailers as well as health food stores.
Clif Kids have a great variety of Zbars granola bars and twisted fruit ropes perfect for snacking on. You can find these at Target and most health food stores.
