Have way too many baskets at your house!? I know we had too many growing up & my Mom now likes to get Tanner basekts...gets a little crazy & you have too many! Anyways, I like the alternate idea that she did last year! After his first year (got 3) it was a welcome change!
Pottery Barn Kids has these cute containers that can be used for so many different things after Easter! They have primary colors too which may be better for a boy.
Get a cute personalized bucket from a website like: http://www.polkadotsandwhatnots.com/category_9/Personalized-Buckets.htm
A dumptruck for a boy would be good as Spring is coming & they can never have too many trucks!
This cute purse from Bath & Body Works would be great for a young girl or "tween"! They had three different dogs to choose from.
I thought this dragonfly bucket was cute too & they had other designs to choose from as well: http://www.polkadotsonline.com/products.php?catID=9902029
