    What can you put in an Easter basket besides candy?

    Easter is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about what to fill the Easter baskets with! Parents these days are more conscience about sugar intake, so no more filling the basket to the brim with giant chocolate bunnies and sugar-coated marshmallows. Plenty of other options can make an Easter basket even more special. 

    One way to add a creative touch to Easter baskets is to include a homemade craft kit. This could be anything from painting a craft project to making a simple necklace. Not only is it fun to make something together, but it’s also a great way to bond with your loved one.

    For the little ones, many plush animals could be a great addition to their Easter basket. From bunnies and chicks to lambs and ducks, these soft toys will surely put a smile on any child’s face.  For the older kids, books, puzzles and board games can be a great way to keep them occupied. Books are also an excellent option, as it’s always nice to curl up with a good book and get lost in a different world.

    All it takes is a little bit of creativity and thoughtfulness to create the perfect Easter basket for anyone. So what will you fill your basket with this Easter?

    How much should I spend on an Easter gift?

    The amount you spend on an Easter gift will depend on the person you buy it for. Consider what they would appreciate most and adjust your budget accordingly. Most people spend between $25 and $50 per child on an Easter basket.

    If you have a limited budget, there are many thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas you can give without breaking the bank. If you’re feeling creative, you can craft something special for the person, such as a collage of pictures, a poem or a knitted item.

    No matter what you decide to give this Easter, the thought behind the gift will surely bring a smile to their face. Choose a gift that has meaning and shows that you have put thought and effort into it. This will make the Easter gift unique and memorable.

    Is it appropriate to give an adult an Easter gift?
