Hopping Into Easter

A fun holiday when you can make gift baskets for kids is Easter. From bunnies to chicks and lambs, there are several items that you can add to the basket that are fun to play with and fun to eat for the holiday. When you begin designing the basket, try to use pastel colors as these blend well with the spring season. Examples include pink, light blue, green, and yellow.

A wicker basket is an ideal solution for the container that you use for Easter. Put an Easter basket liner inside so that it can be used each year if you plan to keep the basket and only give the person the items inside. On the other hand, the person on the receiving end can use the basket as a decoration year after year.

For many families, they enjoy brunch or an early lunch with family members after church services or before Easter egg hunts get underway. Take a beautiful basket with you that is full of items for the hostess. A wooden basket with a pastel ribbon wrapped around the middle is a good place to start. Add items like a bottle of wine and wine glasses, bubble bath, nail polish, and lotion. You can also include candles and chocolate. This should be a basket with items that the hostess can use to relax at the end of the day after enjoying time with family and friends over the holiday.

When you think of the spring season and Easter, you might think about farms, carrots, lettuce, and other items that you would harvest. Your basket can be designed using a strawberry basket that you paint in an Easter color and that is filled with items the person would enjoy. Add a few artificial eggs to the basket as well whether the gift is for a child or an adult.
