Easter Gift Basket Ideas for Kids

Giving Easter gift bags in Australia has become a tradition to celebrate the end of Lent. The basket often consists of decorated eggs, chocolates, candies and toys. Children, in particular, love Easter because of the fun activities and gifts they receive.

The basket traces back to hundreds of years ago when farmers expect to transition from winter to spring and pray for a bountiful harvest. It also symbolises bounty, and the egg is a sign of new life.
