Natural Easter Shopping Guide

The ultimate guide to a toxin free AND fun Easter!

I spend a lot of time researching to make sure I am recommending the safest products for you and your family. I ALWAYS suggest checking ingredient labels for yourself before purchasing and if you come across something that you do not think belongs on this list, please feel free to reach out to me at so that I can look into it.

Easter Basket Ideas

I need to preface this by saying that I do not typically recommend Green Toys. They are made from recycled plastic and I have had a few issues with some of their toys smelling like laundry detergent in the past. We do own some of their toys that have been free from any fragrance. I have come to the conclusion that the odor may be an Amazon issue, so if you purchase elsewhere you may have better luck. If you are comfortable with this brand, you could consider using one of their vehicles (dump truck, wagon) or even a pail as your “basket.”

These Amish baskets in “plain” (no color, no brass plate because of lead) look like a really great option, too. If purchasing homemade baskets from small businesses, be cautious of anything personalized with vinyl because of lead concerns.

Grass ideas: Emerald green play silks from Sarah’s Silks. Ecograss (I’ve found this at Whole Foods in the past. I reuse mine every year). DIY grass with construction paper and a paper shredder. You could even use paper shopping bags for this.

Easter Basket Treats

UNREAL Brand – I love this brand for a healthy alternative to popular candies like M&M’S or Reese’s. You can purchase straight from their site or Amazon. They are also available in a lot of local retailers. You can use their store locator to see where to purchase in your area.

Little Secrets – They have a great swap for Reese’s Pieces. They also have tons of yummy candy bars. Find locally here.

Chocolate bunnies – Chocolate Easter bunnies are kind of hard to find. I typically buy one from Whole Foods every year. Lake Champlain makes them as well, but they are a bit expensive. This one from No Whey! isn’t organic, but the ingredients are pretty decent and it is a great option for those with a dairy allergy.

Organic stuffed animals.

Fun and toxin free bath products. Bath bombs, soap bars or bubble baths.

Personal care products like lip balms and lotions.

Natural art supplies like Honey Sticks crayons or non-toxic chalk.

New summer wardrobe – I love to gift my kids fun and new clothes for the summer season. I usually gift swimsuits for the summer, too. Primary and Hanna Andersson are great places to shop for less toxic swimwear.

Other miscellaneous basket ideas (that aren’t necessarily “natural”): Sunglasses, coloring books, activity books, crayons/markers, stickers, Melissa & Doug Water Wow pads, books, puzzles, cookie cutters, a kite.
