Easter is just a few short weeks away, so we’re all thinking about just what we’re going to stuff our kids’ Easter baskets with this year. While there’s nothing wrong with jellybeans and Peeps, maybe consider some of these cool Easter basket ideas under $20 for kids.
We just love Easter basket gifts that are affordable, but still make a big impression. And if you’re not doing a “basket,” any one of them would make a cool little gift for cousins, nieces, nephews and grandkids all on their own.
