Dyeing eggs is cool. Watching them hunt for eggs is sheer joy (and mayhem!) But hands-down the most fun part of our Easter tradition is assembling perfect personalized Easter baskets.

Sure, there's the goodies themselves. Jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and non-candy Easter treats are a must, but what really makes them special is the basket itself. There's something so sweet about reliving memories of years past, watching the basket shrink as they get bigger. In the blink of an eye they go from being small enough to fit inside it to bopping a sibling upside the head with it when the egg hunt competition gets heated. (#keepingitreal)

From custom Easter baskets they'll use for years to come to clever Easter basket alternatives that can be used long after the bunny hops away, we've rounded up some of the sweetest ways to hold their treats.
