Boys are different than girls. Certainly, both a 6 year old boy and girl would love a good Easter egg hunt. However, when it comes to Easter basket ideas for boys you should plan accordingly; lest you have egg on your face. Sure, some of the items below will cross over to the girl Easter baskets and vice versa. Being the dad to a 4 and 6 year old boy we know what they’re asking for in their Easter basket and here are a variety of ideas that range from bigger items like the Star Wars throw to a trip to your local $1 store.

We were provided with the Star Wars throw and National Geographic books for the post, but, it’s Star Wars and Nat Geo. Everything else was paid for by us and all of the items would rock a boy’s Easter basket like nobody’s business.

Star Wars Throw

Neither of our children has seen a Star Wars film. However, they both love Star Wars, already know Darth Vader, Chewbacca and know that they want to see it ASAP-the only question is what order will it be shown to them in…? The here and now is that they want Star Wars stuff and a Star Wars throw is perfect for a young boy who simply wants to snuggle on the sofa with Garth Gater.* The throws range from $25-$39 from The Northwest and come in a variety of materials. If throws or blankets aren’t your thing then dig into some of the Force pillows and get free shipping on any order over $49. If Star Wars isn’t your scene….really…name a sports team, popular culture brand like Peanuts, Sesame Street and such and they’ve got something cool there.

*Our 4 year old can’t quite pronounce Darth Vader yet.
