Shopkins have been slowly taking over our house over the past year. Whenever my daughter earns some screen time, she immediately puts on her headphones to watch unboxing videos done by her fellow Shopkin fanatics. She's even done a few unboxing videos of her own! Because of this passion for tiny supermarket figures, I decided to put together the Ultimate Shopkins Easter Basket!
The fun part about creating a Shopkins-themed Easter basket is that you can choose to spend as much or as little money as you want. Just keep your eyes open for sales, and Shopkins accessories in unexpected places. From tiny stickers to t-shirts, there's a lot of fun items that you can add for just a few of dollars!
As I was perusing the Target Dollar Spot/Bullseye's Playground (my favorite), I came across a whole lot of Shopkins paraphernalia. Jackpot! The giant pencil is a favorite amongst her classmates, and the Shopkins character erasers will go great with it. I also found a cute Shopkins stationery set with pen, notebook and little notepads. All four of these items were $1 each!!
The 6 pack of pencils will be perfect for homework, and the pencil pouch is perfect to hold the all the stationery accessories and of course the kajillion Shopkins Collector's Lists! The pencil pack was $1, and the pouch (with a few accessories included) was $3.
The four-pack of Shopkins gel pens will be fun for writing in her notebooks, as well as using the Shopkins Stamp Set. Sticker books are always a win, especially if puffy stickers are included!! All three of these items were $1.
Umbrellas are always a great Easter basket filler idea, and this Shopkins umbrella was too cute to pass up. I also found some $1 Shopkins bandages, and a mystery plush hanger/keychain, and a set of 3 magnets. Totally random, but they will be such a fun addition to the basket! Because this is an Easter basket, I also grabbed a couple of Shopkins Easter Eggs (2 Shopkins in each).
Walmart is also a great place to find inexpensive Shopkins items! The Shopkins watch was a lucky clearance find, and the stuffed Shopkins Poppy Corn just had to come home with me. In the Easter aisles, I found some lenticular/holographic eggs with Strawberry Kiss on the front.
I always enjoyed getting new spring clothes for Easter. You can also find a pretty large selection of Shopkins tees in the girls clothing to pick from. Another lucky find was this blue Shopkins basket that was on clearance for $3. It is the PERFECT-sized basket to hold all of this amazing loot and can also be used for play after Easter is over!
The Strawberry Kiss lenticular/holographic eggs are great for holding Shopkins, erasers, or any other tiny objects you want to add to the basket.
One of the larger purchases was one of the Shopkins Shoppies dolls. They are all so adorable and cost about $10-14. They include 2 Shopkins, and other accessories. Not sure which one to pick? You really can't go wrong with any of them, but I decided to take my daughter to the store to look at the Shoppies one day and nonchalantly asked which ones were her favorites. The next day, I went back to pick one up for the basket!
I lined the bottom with some tissue paper and Easter grass, then carefully arranged all the Shopkins items into the Shopkins shopping basket. By the way, this doesn't just have to be an Easter gift idea. You can also arrange the gift basket for birthdays, Christmas, or just for fun!!
Do you have a Shopkins fan in your life? Which Shopkin is their favorite?
