Geeky Ideas for a FAN-tastic Easter Basket

March is here and that means it’s less than a month until Easter! If your house is like mine, the days are going to fly by. Easter will be here before you have a chance to go hunting for what to put in your little geekling’s basket. Then it will be a mad dash to find fun things from the Bunny. Well, I’ve gone out in search of geeky goodies to bring smiles to little faces and I’ve compiled them all here to save parents’ time searching.

Now, there are all types of creative ways to fill a basket. I usually encourage the Bunny to leave things other than candy. Why? I have nothing against candy, just my kids get treat bags from other family members filled with yummies and they only can eat so many sweets. With this in mind, my kids find their baskets filled with items like LEGO sets, puzzles, action figures, books, or something to wear. Below are items that I found that are smaller and reasonably priced. Things that would fit perfect in a little fan’s basket. There are also themed baskets to add to the fun. Finally, I listed which store I found each item. Hope you find something perfect for the geeklings in your life!

Geek Themed Baskets

At Target and Wal-Mart, I found super hero, Star Wars, and outer space baskets. The great thing about these baskets is that they can be used as decorative storage after Easter. Dual use item. I’m sold.


This Iron Man basket has a character filled liner.




I found smaller packaged sets for an easier fit in the basket.

For older elementary and early middle school readers, there are two new DC books to choose from – Study Hall of Justice and Wonder Woman at Super Hero High.

If your geekling enjoys Legos and super heroes, than the new LEGO DC Super Heroes: Cosmic Clash movie could be a spot on choice.
