And playing the role of Hav today...

is me and ALL my random posts.

Do you use the same Easter basket every year or what?

    I did when DD was little but the past few years, I've been using different ones and making them part of the gift. This year I bought her a little tote she can use at camp and had it monogrammed. Two years ago I got her a shower basket {also for camp} and filled it with her bunny stuff. A year ago, I completely forgot about basket stuff bc we were in NC for BILs wedding. MOTY.

    I was planning on it, unless he destroys it between now and then.

    Last year I waited too late and they didn't have much left, so I got an ugly tin jungle themed bucket. This year, I found a cute little felt fox one at target. I doubt it'll hold up year after year, so I really need to find one that I want for the long haul.

    We use one basket. We got PBK baskets and liners the kids first Easters and we don't intend to ever replace them.

    I have used the same one for DD the past two years, but I think I'll get her a new one this year. It's pretty small, and now that she's older I'm getting her bigger toys to put in there. DS will need a basket now, I suppose...what do you give a 2 month old for Easter?

    I got a 4 mo. old diaper covers, socks in eggs, teethers, sippy cup, spoons and bowls, bibs and a stuffed bunny.

    Kinda. I have a few different baskets and I just pull out the one that looks like it will hold the loot the best. But I don't plan on buy a new basket ever. Unless it is what you are describing @kateMW. Where the bag can be used throughout the year. But no new easter basket each year

    We've been reusing, but I like the idea of something useful as the container.

    I've been re-using until this year. I found a cute little pink one in Target I loved and it was cheap, so I got a new one.

    Since we know I think a basket will take my kids to hell...I got them buckets. DS1's sand buckets from last year are cracked, so I was going to buy a new one anyway. DS2 is into dumping things out so I got him a small pail to do that with.

    See, I'm not totally opposed to or immune to stuff! My bark is worse than my bite. I get frustrated, but I don't totally abstain. In past years I didn't buy DS1 a basket because he got so many from other people. Those were donated before we moved. And DS2 was a fetus last year.

    ETA: I am not morally opposed to baskets. My kids will just use buckets. The buckets are not a symbolic protest.

    Nope I just get a new one at the dollar store every year. I did recycle the eggs for our Easter egg hunts from the one we did at the y/the ones at the kids preschools.

    I plan to use the same ones every year. I bought DD1 a white basket last year with a lavender liner and found a matching white with pink one this year for DD2.

    Yes, same one every year. It's pretty small, so it hold mostly chocolate. Then we put the other gifts around it.

    This year I have 3 good quality ones, and I'm planning on reusing them.

    We use the same ones. But, we have been using kinda random smallish ones that don't match and aren't big enough. For next year, I'd like to get some "nicer" ones and keep using the new ones every year.

    We have two small woven baskets my mom sent us from her eclectic basket collection and then a felt bunny basket from Target for Owen. This is what we did last year:
