Easter is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, an Easter hunt followed by a basket full of goodies is a treasured tradition. When putting together a basket for my daughter, I’m always looking for quality, handmade items that will last.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite handmade items that would make the perfect fit for your child’s Easter basket.
