While chocolate eggs, candy bunnies and jelly beans are an Easter tradition for many, there are tons of other sweeter-than-candy gifts that the Easter Bunny can give. If you're not sure what else you can give your family and friends, take a look at these clever ideas for non-candy Easter baskets, which make great Easter gifts for babies, toddlers, kids, teens and adults. Even better news: Most of these non-candy Easter basket stuffers are inexpensive and fall under a $20 price tag.
While none of these gifts are for snacking, some fit the theme of a candy gift basket and are reminiscent of favorites like gummy bears and marshmallow bunnies. Others encourage families to play a game together, or get out and enjoy the spring sunshine. Still others are full of activities that will keep the kids entertained long after the egg hunt. There are even a couple that you might want for yourself!
Try as you might, but no Easter basket is complete without some candy and chocolates. So, sprinkle in a few — key word: few — sweet treats along with these cute picks for good measure, and you'll be sure to have a sweet celebration.
