Hippity Hoppity: Here Comes Easter

We can’t believe Easter is almost here! The holiday is very early this year, but we are ready and excited to celebrate the Easter bunny’s arrival in just a few weeks. Whether planning the hunt or putting together Easter baskets for the family, here are some entertaining ideas and gift inspiration to help you get in the spirit.

Hosting an Easter Egg Hunt this year? Whether planning for the entire neighborhood or just a small family get together, here is a little inspiration kids (and adults) will love.

1. Start with fun décor

2. Get festive favors and sweet treats for everyone

The goal is to create a setting that allows kids to celebrate the joy of the hunt and adults the ability to relax and just enjoy. Not planning a giant egg hunt this year, but still want to put together a great basket for your loved ones and friends — we have some inspiration for you here, too! We love working with our customers on creative ways to put together Easter baskets because there are so many creative ways to think about the “vessel” and what goes inside. This year, put together the perfect, personalized Easter basket for everyone in the family this year — because we believe no one is too old for an Easter basket!

1. Start with the basket. And just remember, if making a “basket” for someone a bit older, think about an alternative bag they’ll love instead of a traditional basket!

2. Pick out the basket stuffers! And remember to think about basket stuffers are just fun small gifts the recipient will love — it doesn’t all have to be about bunnies or chocolate!  Does your younger daughter love to draw? Get her a new coloring book!

Are you filling a basket for your oldest daughter heading to college? Get her some of her favorite travel size toiletries or a new cosmetic case that she’ll love when she leaves home. We love this BLVD personalized cosmetic bag — it's the perfect size!

Or a new travel journal or one of our favorite new items for spring, the kate spade new york initial tumbler!

When it comes to Easter baskets, we think it is the thought behind the content that means the most and giving it that extra special time to make it feel personalized.

We wish you the happiest Easter Sunday with friends and family...and if you're looking for a bit more inspiration, we love Martha Stewart’s Pinterest board for all the DIY craft ideas you’ll ever need or for plenty of homemade sweets inspiration, and we love everything on Food Network right now!
