Wicker Basket For Easter Reviewed

Useful After Easter

Have you ever considered using a wicker basket that is not necessarily promoted to be used as an Easter Basket? Walking down any aisle of a store, we can see several options of baskets to be used on Easter morning. We can find them made in a variety of materials and most are extremely cute but will they last beyond a day or two?

I will admit that I have a penchant for baskets as a whole. I can't honestly say when my love for them began or even why. It might be from memories of my Grandmother using different baskets to complete chores with. She had a basket for gathering eggs, one for picking items from the garden, one for the apples and pears and a few others for specific duties around her home. All of those magnificent baskets were worn from use but sturdy and helpful to her.

It occurred to me the other day as I was looking at an option for baskets this year for my grandchildren that I really didn't want to give them one that was commercially produced for the occasion. I just realized that they looked as inexpensive as their price tags indicated. I would rather give them something that could be used again for another purpose. Perhaps something they could smile at one day when they remembered that Grandma gave them that basket.

I think I found a nice solution for this year. I like the idea that the basket I have chosen can be used to store items in if they want. I can picture my youngest using it to keep her crayons, markers and colored pencils in. My oldest could store her music CDs or other items in. I like this idea much better than a basket that will end up broken and in a landfill somewhere in the near future.

How about you? Would you rather place your Easter goodies in a wicker basket that can find multiple uses for after the holiday?

  1. I fully agree, Beverly. This type of basket will work great for an Easter Basket, and is so handy for other things. My son gave me a similar basket, lined with a pretty cotton lining, one Christmas (filled with goodies) and I have now used it to this day for my current yarn projects. Every time I pick out the yarns and pattern for a planned project, I think of my son and his thoughtfulness. And the basket is so handy to carry from my craft room to wherever I decide to work on my project. Your granddaughters will definitely 'remember' grandma and the baskets you give them. Perfect!

  2. That is a very pretty wicker basket that you have featured Bev! I also have an affinity for wicker baskets. Our children had one each that they used year after year for Easter. I guess I should have given them to them to use in their rooms like you suggested. That never occurred to me. We just reused them for Easter each year. I do love the sturdiness of a wicker basket!

  3. Pretty basket indeed. I like that idea as well. Put a few more dollars into the purchase and have a use for it afterwards. I am a basket "nut". Put something in a basket and I'm much more likely to purchase it. Pretty and useful.

  5. Lol, I did this most of the time when the kids were young. I would use all kinds of funky things for baskets, including actual baskets. I always bought items to fill their baskets with. Man I miss those days now that I'm thinking about it. The kids would wake up on Easter Sunday with a basket filled with a ton of things from candy, clothes and toys.
