Furniture and Home Accents Gifting Kids and Pets Kitchen and Dining Seasonal Decor

When it comes to celebrating Easter some people like to bake cakes while others enjoy crafting amazing brunches. But for me, I like to come up with fun ideas for gifting Easter baskets that I know people will enjoy during and after the occasion. Of course these can be personalized further, or even adapted depending on the age of the recipient. Last year I created some cute ones specifically for kids. You can see them all here. 

The sweetest of baskets

One of my favorite baskets for Easter this year has to be the grapevine and moss option. I found this basket at HomeGoods in the garden area and filled it with some chocolate candies. A bunny and carrot garland added the perfect touch evoking the holiday and serving as an additional decorative accessory. 

The best thing about this basket is that it can be later used as a planter. Before filling up this basket with plants, I lined it with newspaper so it would hold up the soil. I can happily say that I was able to transformed this piece into a beautiful spring accessory. 

Hear me relax

Another take on Easter gifting is this beautiful coffee cup. This will make a great detailed gesture for teachers or even neighbors. Adding a cute kitchen towel folded into bunny ears (see tutorial below) will definitively resonate with the occasion. Some tea packets and chocolate spoons will add a variety of beverage ideas to the lucky giftee.

Chick this canister

This is certainly an unexpected Easter type of basket. Inside this big glass canister (found at HomeGoods in the kitchen area) I placed some cute faux grass stones as the base. Over them I started to incorporate some baking basics like rainbow mini cupcake cups, bunny cookie cutters, a decorative wooden chick and a bunny kitchen towel. This will be the ideal basket for the Easter baker aficionado in your gifting list.

To seal this, I added a spatula/cookie cutter combo with a ribbon. This canister has endless possibilities; you can filled it up with BBQ spices, brushes, etc or with all those Italian goodies you will find at the gourmet section in HomeGoods. The best thing about this gift is that the canister will definitively have a great used afterwards 

As you can see these are all out-of-the-box ideas that will be of great used after the festivities are over. Finding a second used to these vessels (or baskets) will blow the mind of the recipients and will be great Easter keepsakes. What would you be gifting this upcoming holiday?
