"You know what I've always wondered about Easter baskets? Where people store them every other day of the year. Because if there's one thing that's not exactly storage-friendly, it's a big, round basket with a gigantic handle on top." — Stephanie, on Cool Mom Picks
Stephanie makes a great point. So what about getting alternatives that store much more easily? There are plenty of DIY options - Cool Mom Picks points you to one of them - but let me show you some that others have made. Let's start with the bag above, from Roxy Creations.
This handbag / Easter basket comes from Sweet Pea and Co.
And then there are the fabric Easter baskets with more rigid handles, making storage a bit more challenging - but a fabric basket is still going to be much easier to store than a woven one. And you might like these baskets well enough to use them as decorative storage throughout the year. It would sort of be a shame to hide away this lovely fabric Easter basket from Regal Rhino Designs.
I'd say the same thing about this Easter basket from Treasured Totes - it's too cute to only use for one day!
And for the easiest storage of all - and the most adult look - there's this canvas tote bag from Modernest, available in three sizes.
