Check out our guide for everything you can find at the bull's-eye retailer to help you celebrate.

How to Buy All Your Easter Items at Target

Easter Clothing

For many, celebrating Easter means picking up some new apparel to wear, whether it's to religious services, a family lunch, or an epic egg hunt. While adults can use the holiday as an excuse to grab a snazzy new outfit, these clothes tend to be marketed more for kids. Target has a handful of ways to shop for kids' Easter clothing, including by designs such as florals, glittery picks, layering essentials, and of course pastels, as those are the quintessential spring palettes.

Want to shop for Easter clothing by item? Target has you covered there, as well. They split Easter apparel into categories such as dresses and rompers, outfit sets, themed accessories, and shoes, among others. And if you'd rather shop by age and gender, know that Target has broken down their Easter clothing selection in the following ways:

Even better, we saw prices start around $4, so you can put together an outfit for less than what you'd spend elsewhere.

Easter Decor

Putting up festive decor is a great way to get into the spirit of the holidays — Easter included. And the bull's-eye retailer has a ton of different options to suit every taste. Deck out your home with wreaths, garlands, signs, decorative figurines, and inflatables.

We saw prices for Target Easter decor products start around $5, so you should be able to grab at least a few items without breaking the bank.

If you need seasonal kitchen and dining items, Target has plenty of those to choose from, too. Shop festive kitchen towels, table runners, tablecloths, dinnerware, serving boards, and other items. You can even pick up pretty pink glasses, bowls shaped like flowers, cake stands, serving bowls, serving platters — basically, you can outfit your entire kitchen and dining room in festive Easter patterns and colors.

Target also has small kitchen appliances that can assist with your festivities, like an everyday egg cooker to help you prep for dyeing eggs even faster, and a mini honeycomb waffle maker for spring-themed brunches all season long. We saw prices for decor products start around $5 depending on the category, so you should be able to grab at least a few items without breaking the bank.

Easter Baskets

A quintessential part of Easter celebrations is the tradition of Easter baskets. At Target you can shop baskets, which we found for as little as $1, and "grass," which also started at just $1 at the time of publication.

If you don't feel creative, you can skip the DIY and opt for pre-filled baskets and eggs instead. These baskets are also great if you want to shop the latest trends, like Star Wars: The Mandalorian. Additionally, the Target pre-filled Easter eggs can be good alternatives for those who are trying to avoid giving out candy. Sure, the eggs come filled with items like stickers and jelly beans, but what kid is going to choose to eat jelly beans? Also, you can probably just take the candies out before gifting the eggs, in case you think the recipients are adventurous and aren't put off by the fact that green jelly beans can be a straight-up lie. (Make them lime or green apple, not mint, come on!)

Of course, once you've settled on a basket, you'll need to fill it. You can pick up eggs and egg-decorating tools and kits, as well as Easter craft kits if you want to give the kids more to do, or just want to bulk up the offerings in a basket with something besides sugar.

Easter Candy and Other Treats

If you aren't shunning sugar this Easter, you can head to Target for a wide variety of holiday treats. We saw prices starting as low as $1, and you can find everything from Reese's Eggs — some argue they're the best Reese's candy for the ratio of peanut butter filling to chocolate — to the controversial candy that is Peeps in a variety of flavors.

Even if you purchase nothing else from Target, it's worth getting your Easter candy from the bull's-eye because of the opportunity for extra savings. When using same-day services, you can actually save even more on the treats you're already planning to buy. For instance, at the time of publication, many Easter candies were part of a "buy one, get one 25% off" deal for those using order pickup or same-day delivery.

Need a quick dessert or spring-themed breakfast item? Be sure to check out the selection of Easter bakery treats at the retailer for cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and other goodies. Pick up candies that are perfect for the big egg hunt, festive baking projects, and even themed salty snacks if you can't take one more chocolate egg.

Easter Meal Items

While not everyone celebrates Easter, it serves as an opportunity for friends and family alike to share a big meal and quality time together. Whether you prefer potluck-style or handling the whole feast yourself, you can find whatever you need for your spring menu at the bull's-eye. Pick up meat and seafood, fresh produce, appetizers, and bakery items. Feeling fancy? Craft your own charcuterie board easily, thanks to the ideas on the Target site.

Expect to get up to 50% off decor, accessories, and candy at Target on the day after Easter.

Don't Forget About Target Easter Clearance Sales

Easter is on April 17, but that means April 18 will likely bring clearance sales at Target. You can expect to get up to 50% off right away on decor, accessories, and of course, candy. But don't wait too long! Although the discounts may get better over time, the selection will probably dwindle quickly. If you have time to shop at Target on Easter Sunday afternoon, you may get lucky with early discounts, so it could be a good time to snag your favorites before they sell out.
