April's Easter Basket Gift Ideas
It's April and Easter will be here before you know it! It's time to start thinking about what to get the loved ones in your life.
I have a few ideas for Easter basket gifts to share with a daughter, niece, friend, or even to keep for yourself! Celebrate the holiday with these items that inspire springtime cheer!
First, let's find ways to delight the little ones that anticipate a visit from the Easter bunny all year long! The holiday is filled with beautiful pastels, florals, and charming animal friends! Start with some fun colorful grass or fabric tassel to line the basket. Spread the joy to your little one with a few fun, floral accessories. Maybe add a sun hat for a day at the park, or a little floral cosmetic bag to put her trinkets in.
Roll up a floral apron that she can wear to bake cookies or to protect her clothes during arts and craft time. Spring means a few rainy days and Easter is a perfect opportunity to gift children rain gear. A bright waterproof raincoat and a matching waterproof hat are a joyous way to deal with a rainy day! Add a little cloth doll friend in a cute floral dress for her to share her treats with. The little bun will love a string of pennants to hang in her room or outside, it's the perfect addition to any Easter celebration. You can't forget the treats! Add some treats that are as sweet as she is! Marshmallow chicks and bunnies are a nice touch but chocolate eggs are my favorite! A pastel-colored fabric bow tied to the handle is an adorable finishing touch!
For a more mature take on the Easter gift basket, ditch the basket! Go with a floral reusable bag that is practical and useful all year round. Cloth strap sandals are great for transitioning into warmer weather. With colorful floral patterns, they will fit right in with the rest of your Easter items.
Colorful oven mitts are an adorable gift that are often an overlooked necessity. It's a small and inexpensive way to add a pop of fresh color to any kitchen. You could even opt for sets of matching tea towels and napkins. Add a small zippered cosmetic bag for their makeup and toiletries when traveling. Keep it fun- add pennants to gift her a simple Easter day decoration.
If jewelry is her thing, find a pair of blooming dangly earrings or a long chain necklace that will go with any top! Decorate the bag with a napkin nest or one made from twine or straw. Finish the bag with festive treats, as everyone loves candy and chocolate! If you pick up chocolate eggs, place them in the nest you created!
Hopefully, this has given you some ideas for Easter gifts for the ladies in your life! Wishing you a happy Easter and spring!
