The basket that has become my Easter Basket recently is the Lunchbox (retired), mainly because it was a graduation present and is one of the "design-a-basket" baskets, with little music note tacks and my High School's colors. Very personal, very cute, currently you have to order 5 identical baskets to do Design A Basket but my mother may have ordered it as a sample or something... This fits the stuff that my mom usually likes to put in my basket, usually a dvd or a computer game, candy, a chocolate egg, some toe socks, some pens and some kind of gadget (my father was very jealous of the laser pointer pens that my little sister and I got last year).
Some other really great baskets that are current that make great easter baskets, my basic criteria for an easter basket: be approximately 10-12 inches and have a handle. Because you need to be able to carry it, and it needs to fit some goodies into it.
From the Fall Wishlist-
- Spring Basket, I believe this is the one that my younger sister uses. it's a really great size for a kids basket and after easter it's very versatile (it also debuted at my older sister's wedding as a flower girl basket)
- Oval Spring Basket- Same deal as the Spring Basket, but really cute because it's oval, just more egg like.
- Botanical Weave Spring Basket- Great size, great handle, and the green and blue weaves look springy, without being overly pastel and girly, so it's great for a young man!
- Small Oval Gathering, A little less traditional shape, shorter but longer, it can still make a very cute basket
