Building the Perfect Easter Basket + Giveaway

Easter is just around the corner and we are excited to partner with CVS to show you how to build the perfect Easter Basket with everything your little ones will love.  Plus you will have the chance to win this Easter basket valued at over $50 and you’ll want to make sure you check out the 25 other bloggers I’ve teamed up with for a fun “My Favorite Things Eater Basket Giveaway!”

How to Build the Perfect Easter Basket

The perfect Easter basket should be full of bright colors, tasty sweets and fun gifts.  It’s super easy to put together the perfect Easter Basket, especially with one stop shopping at CVS.  They have everything you need in store from Easter Baskets to fillers to the goodies that everyone will love!

First, you’ll need to start with a cheerful basket and bright filler to add all your goodies to.

Easter Basket and Filler

Next, select a variety of goodies from your kids favorite candy to fun Easter toys to fill the basket.  When building an Easter basket for my kids I like to balance out the candy and novelty toys that will keep them busy with some practical things as well.  Like a new box of crayons since we are always needing to replace those!

CVS Easter Basket Goodies

My girls love having their nails painted so I picked up a few bottles of nail polish so we can have an at home “spa day” and quality girl time. Another thing my kids seem to use ALL the time are band-aids, so I included a box of those for fun as well.

CVS Pink Nail Polish

Next, fill Easter eggs with candy.  I found these fun sparkly eggs that will hold lots of our favorite candy, Starburst and Hershey Kisses.

Easter Egg Candy

The perfect Easter Basket isn’t complete without a fluffy little bunny, and this one smells like chocolate!  I wish this blog post had a smell feature, because not only is this little bunny adorable it is smells divine too!

Now that we’ve finished building the perfect Easter Basket it’s time to give it away to one lucky winner!  You will get everything you see in this Easter Basket, it is valued at over $50 and not only can you win this basket you can win one of the other 25 Easter Baskets from my friends too!
