Crafting the ultimate horse lover's Easter basket is easy, and we've put everything in one place to help inspire you to put together fun and unique baskets for your loved ones. Easter baskets aren't just for kids either! They make wonderful hostess gifts for the Easter brunch, gifts for your horse trainer, fundraiser baskets for your favorite cause, or just festive ways to show gratitude to people you care for. And to all the moms of adult children...We still want an Easter basket, haha!

Easter baskets don't need to be extravagant, because in the end, it's really the thought and effort you put into it that counts! So we put together a list of some of our favorite items to put in an Easter basket, no matter your budget. So let's get started!

Budget Friendly Easter Basket Ideas

You don't have to spend a ton to make someone feel loved. For this basket, we wanted to put together something that was fun, functional, and budget friendly!

We found this macrame basket at our local Marshalls store on clearance for $6 and lined it with one of our horse-themed cotton napkins, just to give it that extra pony magic. It's perfect to store small items like cosmetics or coffee pods in after the holiday, too! The basket is small, so you can make it look full without needing a ton of items. Fill it with candy and a few small items like horse stickers or pony pins to keep the cost under $20.

If you have an iced coffee lover in your life *raises hand* this size basket would be perfect to pair a Glass Tumbler with some ground coffee and mini flavored syrups in. As an adult who still wants an Easter basket from their mother (lol) a small coffee-themed basket with horses on it would be a total win.

Easter baskets are a way to show love and appreciation.

We put the following items in the pictured basket, with a total cost of just $39.85!

Easter Basket Gifts for Horse-Crazy Kids

Horse kids love their horses. When I was a kid, my horse love was at it's highest levels...Before I knew about vet bills and such...My love for horses was so pure! So naturally, I only wanted horse stuff, and my mom's Easter baskets did not disappoint.

When looking for horse-themed Easter basket gifts for kids, equestrian coloring books or activity books are a sure win, and only cost $14.95! We have a bundle of both books together for 20% off , so you can get both for just $23.98.

Horse stickers are always fun too. Kids can put these stickers on their water bottle, or lunchbox (and hopefully not on the inside of your car window) to show all their friends at school how much they love horses. We have a collection of 10 different horse stickers , priced at $3 each, or a bundle of seven stickers for $16.80.

Reusable Bamboo Fiber Sponges for Home + Barn

These unique sponges are the perfect addition to any Easter gift basket. They're small, affordable, cute, and sustainable. The best part, is they're made of bamboo fiber, so they are naturally anti-microbal...and machine washable too! 

While they're great in the kitchen, they're even better at the barn! The front has scrubbing power for dirty bits, but the back is soft, black terrycloth so it will clean your delicate leather...and not get brown leather stains all over it!

Iced coffee now has more horsepower.

Our glass tumblers are trending...Horse people do love their coffee! Our glass tumblers are perfect for making iced coffee at home, and the bamboo lid and straw will help make sure you don't spill it all over your car lol. We hand-press each tumbler in house and engrave "Ride Happy" on all the lids. Just a little reminder to enjoy the ride.

Pony Pins for Bags, Jackets, Hats ...Whatevs!

A little flair is always fun, especially for the enamel pin collectors (guilty!) Pins are fun, small, affordable, and make really nice gifts either by themselves or as part of an Easter Basket. 

Our Pony Pins match with other items in our collection, so you can make the whole set! Or, you can get some of our curated bundles and save 20% off. Win!

Sustainable Easter Gifts

Without a healthy planet, there's no horses! We want to make sure that our horses have grass to graze on, trees to shade them, water to drink, and air to breathe. That's why we're committed to bringing more sustainable products into our collection. 

Our sustainable gifts not only help our planet by being reusable and biodegradable, but they're also made of renewable resources. The Easter bunny approves!
