Every year when I write about Easter someone will ask me where I got my metal Easter Baskets for the girls. I always have to say that I got them at Target for like $2.99 on clearance 5 years ago. I then feel bad because I wish everyone could have these white metal baskets for Easter. Today I saw that Target has some new ones that are darling.

They are by the Easter Section with the home decor. They are $14.99 (ouch if you have to buy more than one or two), but I feel confident they will at least go to $9.99 before the holiday. They are a darling rounded chicken wire with a scalloped top.
What I love about having a metal basket is that it is indestructible, I don't have to buy new ones every year and I use them all year long for decorating, storage and different holidays. I have a monogrammed tag that I can take off during the year so I can use it for other things. Knowing what I know now I would pay $14.99 for three metal baskets that would be used for Easter for a child's entire life - but can be a tough bill to swallow at the time.
So to anyone in the past that had emailed me about wire baskets for Easter I hope this helps!

Oh these are soo cute! I wish I could buy them, but we aren't even going to be here for Easter. I can't imagine trying to put those in my luggage to San Diego! Not gonna happen! Maybe they will still have some on clearance when I get back a week later??

Cute! I love the scalloped edges. We re-use the same baskets year after year, it adds to the fun. (Ours are also from Target.)

Could that tag be any cuter? I think not! Thanks for the tips!
