Easter Baskets for Boys
If you are filling easter baskets for boys this year, we have some great ideas of non-candy items you can put in your baskets this year. At our house, we put just a small amount of candy in the kids’ baskets and we like to add a few small toys or books to fill the baskets. They already get so much candy at local Easter egg hunts that we like to limit the sweets, plus I like to restock things like art supplies, reading materials or outdoor toys. We found lots of fun things in all price ranges to help you shop for Easter this year.

The best part is that they won’t fall out of the book like traditional bookmarks when the book is carried or dropped.
