I love Easter. It is a fun, happy, celebratory holiday. The weather is getting nicer, the flowers are blooming, and everyone is generally in a good mood. To me, Easter is all the fun of Christmas with family and celebrations, but without all the stress and busy-ness.
As a kid, I loved getting up on Easter, hunting eggs and checking out my Easter basket. My mom was a pro at making up the best Easter baskets. She always found the best little gifts – cute, fun and useful. Often times, my favorite gifts were the ones that I never knew that I wanted.
Now it is my turn to do the same for my kids. While I enjoy assembling Easter baskets for my kids, sometimes trying to think of something creative and fun gifts to put in the basket is a challenge. If you feel the same way, check out a list I put together of Easter basket gift ideas. I hope you find some ideas for your baskets!
