Discover the Perfect Basket for Every Bunny

Easter is hopping closer and that means it’s time to start thinking about Easter baskets! As a parent, I always want to make sure my kids have magical Easter mornings with baskets overflowing with goodies. But it can be tricky finding unique and creative baskets that match each child’s personality. Thankfully, Michaels provides an amazing selection of Easter baskets for every bunny in your family!

Last week, I headed to my local Michaels to scout out their Easter basket selection. I was absolutely blown away by the variety of styles, sizes, colors and materials available. They really do offer baskets suited for every age and interest.

Types of Easter Baskets

In the Easter basket section, I found a wide range of pre-made and customizable baskets to choose from. Traditional wicker baskets in neutral colors make classy choices that can be reused year after year. Brightly colored plastic baskets shaped like carrots or rabbits bring a playful vibe perfect for young kids. For a more elegant touch, faux leather or marble-printed baskets make refined options fit for an adult or teen.

Michaels also offers several build-your-own Easter basket stations where you can mix and match colors and materials to create a completely unique basket. Choose from straw, fabric, wood, paperboard, metal and more to make exactly the basket you envision. I loved being able to customize details like basket shape, handle style, and accent colors.

Sizes for Every Bunny

Another great thing about Michaels is they provide Easter baskets in so many sizes for various ages and gift ideas. Tiny 4-inch baskets are darling for newborns’ first Easter. Medium 9-inch baskets work nicely for toddlers and preschoolers. For older kids, the larger 14-16 inch baskets allow plenty of space for overflowing with eggs, toys and treats.

And if you’re looking for an Easter gift for grandma or a favorite teacher, check out the boutique-style baskets sized around 8-12 inches in designs made for an adult. Or grab one of the oversized 20+ inch baskets meant to be filled with a family Easter feast for a lovely centerpiece. The range of basket sizes at Michaels is really quite impressive.

Materials to Suit Every Style

Beyond sizes and colors, Michaels offers Easter baskets made from all kinds of materials to match your recipient’s style. Traditional wicker or straw baskets bring that cozy, rustic feel perfect for cottage decor. Sturdy wooden baskets make handsome heirloom pieces with artisanal charm.

For kids or adults who love sleek, modern styles, try a wire metal basket in gold, rose gold or silver. Or check out the rainbow of plastic baskets in fun shapes like carrots, eggs or bunnies. Going for an elegant vibe? The faux leather and marble printed baskets add refinement with a luscious texture.

If eco-friendly factors into your basket choice, Michaels has an array of baskets made from recycled materials or sustainable natural fibers like seagrass. These options combine durability with earth-friendly designs.

Themed Baskets Galore

Beyond the basic basket materials and designs, Michaels takes themed baskets to a whole new level. You can shop their Easter collections by interests and hobbies for a basket that truly suits the recipient.

For a baby’s first Easter, choose from precious baskets in soft pastels decorated with bunnies, lambs and flowers. Toddler and preschool baskets take colorful, playful themes with unicorns, superheroes, pirates and mermaids.

Sporty kids will love basketball or soccer themed baskets shaped like their favorite balls. Or pick a pretty basket accented with ballet slippers for your tiny dancer. For the animal lover, they have baskets with chickens, cats or safari themes. And you can’t go wrong with baskets splashed in their favorite Disney characters or comic book superheroes.

Beyond kids, check out beautifully designed floral baskets for the gardener, sparkly jewel-tone baskets for crafters, and sleek monogrammed baskets for professionals. The options are endless!

Budget-Friendly Prices

Now for the exciting part – Michaels’ Easter baskets are very budget-friendly! Basic wicker baskets start at just $3, with various sizes under $10, $15 or $20 to suit every budget. Even the gigantic baskets meant for families are an affordable less than $50.

The themed designer baskets do range slightly higher from $10-$25 depending on characters and brand. But that’s still so affordable to create a special Easter moment. Chandelier height doesn’t have to equal chandelier price!

Bulk Baskets for Events

For church events, family gatherings or classroom parties, you can shop Michaels’ wide selection of Easter baskets in bulk. Their inventory includes dozens of bulk basket packs for purchase online.

Most packs include 12-24 baskets in smaller sizes perfect for stuffing with eggs and goodies. A few options even have 100+ mini baskets ready for an Easter egg hunt or carnival. The bulk packs represent a huge savings compared to individual basket prices. It’s much more cost effective to purchase your baskets this way for large groups.

DIY Decorating Supplies

Part of the fun can be decorating your own Easter baskets! Michaels excels at offering all the DIY supplies you need to personalize basic baskets. I found burlap, ribbons, lace, flowers, and more to use for embellishing store-bought baskets.

Or take it up a notch and create baskets from scratch with fillable plastic eggs, faux grass, cellophane and papier mache shapes. I loved browsing the spring paper packs with colorful eggs, carrots, chicks and bunnies for next-level decorating.

And don’t miss the Easter-themed wood shapes, signs and figurines that can be painted or embellished to stick on baskets with hot glue. The options for DIYing gorgeous baskets are endless here!

Order Online, Pick Up In-Store

Like many busy parents, I love the convenience of online shopping with easy in-store pickup. Michaels makes this process seamless with their Easter baskets.

Browsing their user-friendly website lets you see every Easter basket option available in your local stores. Add whatever styles or quantities you’d like to your cart. Then at checkout, select your preferred store location and pickup date/time.

I find the next day pickup option super handy. I can leisurely peruse options from my couch in the evening. Then swing by the store the next day on my way home to retrieve my ready-to-go baskets. It’s such a time saver while still getting that instant basket gratification!

Return Policies You’ll Hop For

Of course, returns and exchanges are inevitable with family gifting. The good news is Michaels offers a generous return window and policy for Easter baskets.

For baskets purchased in-store, returns are accepted within 90 days of purchase as long as you have the original receipt. For online purchases, you have 180 days from the ship date to return baskets to your local store.

If the basket recipient ends up with duplicates or just doesn’t like their basket, returns are no problem. Some exclusions apply, but Michaels’ return policy is overall very accommodating.

Unique Exclusive Designs

While browsing the Easter basket selection, several exclusive Michaels designs caught my eye. They have partnerships with popular brands like Disney and Mattel that lead to basket designs you won’t find anywhere else.

For example, the Disney tokidoki polka-dot basket printed with unicorns and characters is a Michaels exclusive. So is the bright Coco Easter basket decked out in skulls, flowers and papel picado.

Some other fun exclusives I saw were the Barbie participation trophy basketHot Wheels race car basket, and sweet Baby Yoda basket complete with fuzzy green ears. These creative themed baskets really display the magic Michaels brings to the Easter holiday.

Glowing Customer Reviews

Beyond my own glowing impressions, it’s always helpful to read customer reviews of a product before purchasing. Overall, Michaels Easter baskets earn consistently positive 4-5 star ratings across the board.

Happy customers rave about the huge selectionquality construction and value for money of the baskets. Many reviewers are repeat Easter basket shoppers who love Michaels for the variety and affordability year after year.

Some reviewers do warn to carefully inspect basket purchases for any damage before use. But Michaels’ great return policy provides a safety net if any issues arise down the road. All in all, customer satisfaction with Michaels Easter baskets seems extremely high.

Recommended Fillers and Accessories

Michaels makes it easy to create a complete Easter basket with all the trimmings. Their stores and website overflow with every type of egg, grass, candy, toy and trinket you could need to stuff a sensational basket.

For overflowing fillers, I recommend grabbing a few packages of their pastel Easter grass, ribbon curls, or shreds in coordinating colors. Mix in some brightly dyed Easter eggs and a bag of chocolate eggs or jelly beans.

Top it off with a few small toy surprises like bubbles, sidewalk chalk or stuffed animals. And don’t forget to personalize with a monogrammed towel, ceramic mug, or customized metal sign with the recipient’s name. Creating the perfect basket is a cinch with Michaels’ amazing range of accessories.

Personalization Services Available

Speaking of personalization, Michaels also offers basket personalization services in store for that special touch. You can add a specific name to many basket styles for a custom memento.

Some options for personalization include:

  • Monogram – A fancy initial added to the basket exterior
  • Name – Spelled out in entirety in a flowing font
  • Saying – Select from verses or phrases like “Happy Easter”
  • Year – Remember the year with a “2022” added

To make it extra special, I recommend pairing your personalized basket with coordinating towels, mugs or keepsake gifts featuring the same name or initials. Michaels can even personalize many of those items in-store for a wrapped up customized gift.

Shipping and Delivery Options

While ordering online for in-store pickup is convenient, Michaels also provides nationwide shipping on Easter baskets for delivery directly to your door.

Shipping costs vary by total purchase amount:

  • Under $59 – $5.99 economy shipping
  • $59+ – Free standard shipping
  • Expedited – $9.99-$19.99 priority options

I recommend ordering by April 10 for delivery by Easter weekend with standard shipping. And for an extra fee, 2-day or next day shipping provides a safeguard for any last minute basket needs.

Living farther away, I appreciate that Michaels extends their Easter cheer through shipping baskets easily across the miles. It’s just another handy service they offer customers.

Get a Jump on Next Year

Believe it or not, right after Easter is the best time to get a jump start on baskets for 2023! Michaels puts all their remaining Easter inventory on deep discount to make room for the next holiday.

I’m talking 50-75% off remaining Easter baskets, eggs, grass, candy, decor and more. It lets you score baskets and fillers for next year at ultra budget-friendly prices.

Around the first week of April, I like to assess what types and sizes of baskets we’ll need for my kids next Easter. Then I stock up during the post-holiday sales to get ahead of the game. It takes the pressure off when Easter 2023 rolls around.

DIY Easter Basket Inspiration

Easter brings out my crafty side and Michaels always provides inspiration for DIY projects. Beyond the decorating supplies, their website is full of step-by-step tutorials for creating decorative baskets to make the holiday extra special.

Some of my favorite ideas include:

  • Decoupaging baskets with scrapbook paper
  • Weaving baskets from rainbow yarn or fabric strips
  • Using plastic eggs to form unique basket shapes
  • Planting succulents or flowers inside baskets for gifts
  • Dyeing wicker baskets bright colors for a pastel rainbow effect

The possibilities are endless with a quick search of Michaels’ DIY Easter ideas online or a flip through their in-store craft magazines. Time to get creative!

Coordinating Seasonal Decor

An Easter basket gift becomes even sweeter when paired with festive holiday home decor. Luckily, Michaels is a one-stop-shop for every Easter decorating need. Their decor section overflows with wreaths, garlands, bouquets, bunnies, eggs and so much more.

I especially love using Michaels for coordinating Easter tablescapes. Pick up a runner, placemats, napkins and centerpiece in a matching pattern or color story. Then top off each place setting with a personalized Easter basket for a picture perfect holiday table.

From wall decor to yard inflatables, they have everything to deck your halls in Easter style. Adding a few matching decorative touches makes those Easter basket gifts feel even more special.
