Easter is coming, and custom products are a must-have for the egg-hunting season. Let’s learn more!
We know. We know. Santa hasn’t even made an appearance yet and we’re already talking about the Easter Bunny! But hear us out…
If you own a store where you sell holiday merchandise, you know how important it is to plan out your merchandise ahead of time. The holidays come and go quickly, and they’re an extremely busy time with lots to consider. Once the holidays arrive, you won’t have much of a chance to sit back and plan for the coming months. So don’t let Easter sneak up on you, especially if you are ordering custom products. As you probably know, you should be doing your inventory shopping several months in advance!
With that in mind, Easter is really not as far off as it seems. Once New Year’s Day is over, it’ll only be a few months away. You DON’T want to miss out on custom Easter products, either. Americans were expected to spend $20.6 billion on Easter in 2022—who knows how much they’ll spend this year?
Custom Products Perfect for Easter Egg Baskets
Easter egg baskets are extremely popular for kids, but in recent years, adults have been enjoying this fun tradition as well. Here are some great ideas for custom products to sell as Easter egg basket fillers:
It doesn’t matter which type of custom patch you choose. Just put a custom Easter design on it and it becomes the perfect Easter egg basket filler! We offer seven different types of custom patches, including DOZENS of customization options, special add-ons, and more. There’s unlimited room to put your brand’s own unique spin on a custom Easter patch.
This is a great option for an adult Easter Egg basket. Pins are easy to apply anywhere, from jackets to pants to backpacks, and they’re becoming extremely popular as part of the vintage 80s revival in 2022. From enamel pins to die-struck pins, the options here are almost as endless as custom patches.
Custom socks are the ultimate catch-all merch item, great for the entire family. Everyone, from Grandma to the young grandchildren, will wear socks, and you can apply any design in the world to them, from basic ones like Easter eggs or bunnies to more complex designs relating to pop culture, such as Easter books & movies. You can sell socks only as an Easter egg filler, but as merch all by themselves.
Stickers are another surefire Easter egg basket filler, especially for young kids. They’re cheap to make, easy to put any design on, and easy to ship & store. Kids can apply stickers to water bottles, laptops, phone cases, helmets, and more in an instant, so they’re an extremely versatile personalized Easter product.
Keychains are yet another great egg basket filler idea, for many of the same reasons as stickers, patches, and pins. They’re cheap, compact, and affordable, and they can hold all manner of designs. The types of keychains you can make are also quite diverse, including embroidered keychains, PVC keychains, and metal keychains. Have fun with it!
Custom Cufflinks and Tie Bars
For an adult egg basket, cufflinks and tie bars are a nice choice. These are great to sell on their own as well as to wear on the Easter holiday itself, and they have a sense of style that other merch items don’t. They both look & feel high-quality, and will make a meaningful addition to any gift basket.
Make it Retail Ready
Whichever custom product you decide on, don’t forget to order special packaging to make your items retail-ready. We recommend backer cards, header cards, and other special packaging. Not only does this give you a place to put hardline info like pricing and barcodes, but it’s also a place to leave a fun message for your customers, promote an upcoming sale, or give a discount code to entice a future purchase.
