Easter is one of those holidays that I never stress about until the week prior. Of course that means I end up overspending and scrambling on marked-up candy or barely-in-stock basket stuffers that my kids forget about the next day. My goal is to change that in 2023, and I’m starting at Five Below. Easter is on April 9 this year, leaving me with a little bit of time to get my baskets in order without breaking my budget. What I love about Five Below Easter basket ideas is that there’s something useful for everyone and nothing feels like “junk.”
If you haven’t shopped at Five Below yet, just know that there is a $7.95 flat-rate shipping fee and you need to order by April 1 to ensure it comes in time. I avoid that fee by always choosing free store pickup, which is always 100% free. From Easter eggs, Five Below Squishmallows, and good deals on candy, we rounded up Five Below Easter finds into basket categories for easy shopping. Since many stores are closed on Easter, shop Five Below now to get ahead.

Grab a $3 Easter basket and stuff it with what a Squish fan really wants this Easter: a $5.95 Squishmallow, Squishmallow Blind Bag, Squishmallow headphones, a Squishmallow bath bomb, and other fun goodies. For a grand total of $26.20, that’s pretty good. Especially considering a rare Easter Squishmallow at Target could cost you $14.99!

Skip the Sephora costs and find some serious beauty steals at Five Below, including a $2.50 hot stone massage kit, $5 blackhead extractor, and a $5 studded tumbler that is a perfect Starbucks studded tumbler dupe.
