If you celebrate Easter, a basket is likely the first item on your list of holiday must-haves. When filled with faux grass, dyed eggs, and sweet treats, baskets take on a traditional and cheerful look. What do you do with them after the Easter bunny has hopped away, though?

Buy the right one—a pretty, practical basket that doesn’t have bunny ears or other holiday-specific markings—and an Easter basket can easily be repurposed as everyday home decor. You’ll get more bang for your buck with a stylish basket, and its versatility will spare you from needing to find a spot to stash it the rest of the year. 

That’s why we rounded up 10 baskets that can be used as centerpieces, storage, mantel decor, and more—long after you’ve eaten the last Peep. Read on for our favorites.

G GOOD GAIN Picnic Basket with Double Folding Handles


Picnic basket or Easter basket? How about both? Make the most of this woven wooden design all year long, using it to collect eggs during a friendly Easter egg hunt, carry your al fresco lunch, or organize items in your pantry. Its classic striped liner is removable for easy cleaning, making it all the more practical. No matter how (or where) you use it, this basket would add a touch of rustic charm.

WYI Rattan Flower Basket



The uses for this rattan basket are nearly endless. How about using it to collect vegetables from your garden, or for a flower girl to spread petals at a wedding, or as an Easter brunch centerpiece? We could go on, but you get the idea. This plastic-lined basket comes in two sizes, so you can find just the right fit for your home.

World Market Double Handle Woven Easter Gift Basket Kit

This Easter (and beyond) basket is a one-and-done buy. Its DIY kit includes the woven wood-slat basket, excelsior filling, and raffia ties, making it ready to be stuffed with Easter treats and toys. Later, bag up the excelsior moss and put it to work as a fruit basket.

Spritz 12" Round Plastic Willow Decorative Easter Basket

Spritz 12" Round Plastic Willow Decorative Easter Basket


When filled with pastel-colored Easter eggs or chocolate bunnies, this petite basket makes for a super cute addition to your holiday decor. (It’s especially kiddo-friendly since it comes in bright colors and is lightweight, making it extra easy to carry around gathering eggs.) After the holiday is over, this basket can be repurposed as a decorative piece for your dining room table or mantel, or could be used as a base for a gift basket. Even better: it’s available in four colors—blue, natural, pink, and white—and costs a budget-friendly $10.

Anthropologie Olli Ella Blossom Basket

One of each, please! These rattan baskets, which are available in four colors as well as a natural option, couldn’t be cuter. And if you’re a parent, they prove that kids’ Easter baskets can be sophisticated, not landfill-bound after a year or two. They’d be perfect for egg hunts or storage of any sort. 

World Market Large Ombre Woven Easter Basket

There’s no way you could store this basket away after Easter. It’s simply too cute to only enjoy for a couple weeks of the year. Instead, use this ombre-style design to brighten any area of your home, storing kids’ art supplies or organizing your desk. Just keep this basket out of your bathroom; it’s made of woodchips, which could warp if exposed to moisture.

The Holiday Aisle Preserved Moss Coated Easter Metal/Wire Basket

Not only would this moss-covered basket make for a charming Easter brunch centerpiece, but it could bring a touch of nature to your home all spring (and summer) long. This basket is available in two sizes and is fit for indoor or outdoor use, which multiplies its versatility. If you decide to place a plant in it—how lush and lovely would an orchid or succulent look in it?—don’t worry about giving your plants a drink of water; this basket will maintain its shape through watering sessions, and will stay vibrant for years. 

Spritz Round Bamboo Decorative Easter Basket

Round Bamboo Decorative Easter Basket


This basket, with its traditional woven design and blue and green color scheme, screams “Easter.” That is, until after the holiday is over, and you repurpose it for cute-as-can-be storage. It’d fit right in as playroom decor, and make for an easy place for kiddos to throw their toy cars or other itty bitty items that you’d rather not step on.

Or how about using this basket in your bathroom? It’d be an adorable home for rolls of toilet paper or a caddy of goodies for guests, filled with a washcloth, toothpaste, and mini hair dryer. Plus, at just $5, it doesn’t get much more budget-friendly.

Place & Time 14" Easter Wood & Green Metal Basket

Easter Wood & Green Metal Basket by Place & Time


This green metal basket has a wooden base, making it ideal for, well, just about anything. Fill it with fruits or vegetables to brighten (and organize) your kitchen counter, or add plenty of chocolatey treats in it for Easter. This basket doesn’t have a handle though, so it’s not meant to be carried, as many Easter baskets are.

World Market Bird's Nest Easter Gift Basket Kit

Here’s your proof that not all Easter baskets have to be kid-centric. This textured basket, made of vine and wire, is purely for adults and would make for a sophisticated addition to your decor however you choose to use it.
