Easter Baskets Without the Plastic

woven Easter basket

If you're going to get an Easter basket, why not get one that really pleases you - and one that has storage potential beyond one day's eggs? The one above comes from A.J. McCray of Baskauta.

But you don't need to stick to woven baskets. For example, you might like these felt bunny baskets. Update on April 20, 2011: The site selling these has shut down.

This cute little basket from Handmade Home Care was hand-crocheted.

fabri Easter basket

Baffin Bags has a number of fabric Easter baskets; this is my favorite.

And staying with cool prints for a minute, here's a basket from Savaria. That's Sandra, born in Bavaria, and currently living in South Korea; her husband is in the U.S. military.

This bunny Easter basket comes with six cracked-egg candles. (I wish you could buy the basket without the candles, but it seems to be a package deal.) Update on April 20, 2011: This year the basket seems to be selling without the candles.

vintage Easter buckets

You could also go the bucket route. Whendi's Bears is selling these vintage Easter buckets. Wendy (who spells her name differently than the name of her shop) says they are made of a heavy cardboard-type material.

Or you could get a bucket from Whimsy Tin. (More options here.)
