Easter Basket Ideas Dollar Tree Style

I don't know about you, but I used to struggle coming up with ideas on what to put in my kids' Easter baskets. This year, that is not the case.  While my kids are mostly grown, I still love to give them gifts.  My youngest has very eclectic tastes, but this year I found so many things I knew she would enjoy getting as a gift.  Since she is older, I decided to use one of their baskets that come in pastel colors instead of a traditional Easter basket.  She will be able to use this basket all year, for many different reasons.

My daughter does not read my blog, so I am able to share what I am giving her without ruining the surprise. She loves animals, and there are so many things that are animal themed.  
  • You Are Pawsome tote bag (the perfect size for pet supplies) 
  • animal socks w/ ears (she loves fun socks, the sillier the better) 
  • cat with glitter glasses pom pom pen 
  • 3D wooden cat with light
  • paw print pet bowl mat
  • silly frog figurines        

I could not fit everything in one picture, so here is the rest. (sorry it is at a weird angle) She is also getting..
  • a hanging shelf to put her goodies on 
  • a multi color phone holder 
  • 2 different hair masks 
  • 2 different colors of LA Colors blush/glow sticks 
  • 2 different colors of LA Colors Nail Diva nail tips
  • a neon green mini squish pillow 
  • chocolate bunnies and candy (not pictured) 

Today we went to visit a Dollar Tree in a neighboring town, and she picked out a few things that are not going to be in her basket, but definitely could be included. 
  • unicorn make up brush 
  • set of 3 different earrings 
  • a glass bead bracelet 
  • a 2021 date book 
  • a spaced themed cosmetic (or pencil) bag 
  • exfoliating glove 
  • tri color baseball cap 
If you would like even more ideas here are so more items that we loved

There were more to choose from, but I picked Descendants, WW84, and Trolls World Tour for the colors of the pens

1 lb bags of Sour Bears and Worms 

Trolli All Star Mix and Evil Twins 

If you need more ideas, be sure to check out Dollar Tree online. Did you know you can order from the website and get free shipping to your local store?  

A few weeks ago, I was searching everywhere for these adorable 13 inch Easter Bunnies.  I found out that were available online, and your could order in batches of four.  A few days after I ordered I received a notification that they had arrived, and all I had to bring was the confirmation email they sent me.  It was super simple, no mark up or shipping cost, and I had my bunnies for only $4.24    Last week I did find some bunnies in only one of my local stores, but I think that was only because I was there on the day they had arrived. (they sold out in stores FAST!)    Buying items online are great when you need a bigger quantity, or something that is hard to find. (think birthday parties, class parties, and those ever popular gnomes)   Sometimes you need to buy a case, but there are many items you can buy in small batches as well.  I had such a good experience doing an online order, I will definitely go it again.  

I hope I was able to give you some ideas and inspiration.  What is your favorite Easter Dollar Tree find?
