Easter Baskets That Also Make for a Great Gift!

Easter will be here before we know it and like many others out there, we will be filling up the Easter Baskets for our kids. This year, like last year, we have decided to not go with the traditional Easter Basket that ends up either being torn up or thrown out after it has been used. Instead we have decided to be practical and use baskets that can be used for other purposes, like last year the baskets we used were used as waste bins for the kids rooms and are still being used for that purpose. This year, since we are keeping that idea in mind, I have been on the hunt for Easter Baskets that can be reused for something else after they have fulfilled their purpose of being Easter Baskets. Well, my search was made easier this year for my daughters basket when I was sent the Jasmin Farm Basket from Basil Basket. Not only is this a very adorable basket to use for Estrells's Easter Basket this year, but after she empties it, she can continue to use it as a bike basket. This basket is meant to be used as a bike basket and it easily attaches to her bike when she is ready to use it. I love that when she does us it, it will be perfect for carrying her water bottle in and other items around in when she is out riding with her friends! I also love that for the time being, this adorable basket will make for the perfect Easter Basket to hold all of Estrella's Easter goodies in this year!! So, instead of going out and spending money on a basket that you may never use again, get them a basket that not only serves as a Easter Basket but also serves as a very practical gift all in its own and get them a Jasmin Farm Basket or any of the other great bike baskets from Basil!

A re-usable basket is a great idea. I like that last years are still being used.

Good cute idea for a different but usable Easter basket. The dollar stores also have lots of cute basket type container that can be used for baskets too. Check them all out

This is a great idea - I never liked those flimsy baskets that fall apart and I disliked that fake grass even more.
