Easter baskets have evolved from a confluence of traditions, some that date back thousands of years. For example, Easter egg candy grew out of the idea that eggs are a symbol of fertility and renewal.
Originally, Easter baskets were used to hold candy treats and hard-cooked or chocolate-covered eggs. By the 1700s, many families incorporated an Easter rabbit toy into their celebration.

The tradition of Easter baskets carries on today with the addition of more gifts for children and adults alike, including plush toys, a wide range of candy treats and even non-candy items such as books, bath products and craft kits. Easter baskets are considered an indicator of status and wealth because of the cost of their contents, which often include items that aren’t typically available at a discount retailer.
