Candy free Easter Basket Ideas
Are you looking for some candy-free Easter basket ideas? Some kids have food allergies or are on special diets, or just don’t need candy! I don’t plan to put
any much candy in my kids Easter baskets this year.
Maybe it’s because I am a mean mom, but I’d rather give them one or two nicer items and an occasional treat instead of stuffing a basket full of candy and cheap toys. If you’re looking for candy-free Easter basket ideas, keep reading!
My favorite Easter basket ideas (no candy or junk.)
Whatever your reason, here are a few of my favorite non-candy Easter basket ideas!
- Water Bottles: A Funtainer water bottle from Amazon. My kids LOVE these! I bought these for Easter baskets three years ago, and they’re still going strong!
- Small toys: Some of our favorite toys are by Melissa and Doug. My kids love having picnics with this wooden food set.. My personal favorite would be the puzzles.
- Books: You can never go wrong with books! Encourage reading by adding fun books with topics that your kids enjoy, like this Jurassic World dinosaur field guide.
- Allergy-friendly cookies: While these cookies aren’t healthy by any means, they are better than candy. They are also gluten, dairy, nut and soy free.
- Lip Balm: My daughter LOVES her EOS lip balm, and so do most other kids! I think this 4-pack is cute.
- Hair accessories: If you have a little girl, hair accessories are a great Easter basket idea. My daughter loves getting new hair accessories anytime.

NO pets for Easter!
I feel like this should go without saying, but it’s apparently a problem so I will say it anyway. Pets like baby chicks or bunnies are a terrible idea for Easter. Many of these animals are accidentally killed by young children or tossed away whenever the child loses interest. You can read this article to find out more but say no to pets for Easter, even if they are adorable.
If you do Easter baskets, what will you be filling them with this year? What kind of non-candy Easter basket ideas are you doing this year? Let me know in the comments.
