Welcome to Easter week friends! If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit you might know that I’m a big fan of themes, especially holiday themes. For Valentine’s it was an entire week of content based around the love holiday, for Christmas there was a week of gift guides. But I definitely wrote more than just that one week.
So why would Easter be any different? I have a week of content planned so hopefully you like spring and chocolate and bunnies. To kick off the week I’ve got a video about Easter baskets. Keep checking back the rest of the week for more content.
I don’t really have any small children in my life so rather than a basket for little ones, I made one for adults. Here’s everything you need if you’re going to put together a basket for an adult:
Honestly the most classic and I think a must have in any Easter basket. My favourite flavour is the hazelnut. It’s like a Ferrero Rocher and I’m such a big fan. They have them in basically every chocolate flavour you could want though so pick one that is the recipients favourite.
I also went for a full on bunny theme with this basket so it compliments the look well.
Colourful eggs filled with chocolate
I have a confession… these aren’t mini eggs. They’re actually hershey’s eggies, which (revolutionary) they actually taste the exact same. These eggs I picked up at dollarama, where they have tons of different types of adorable plastic eggs. I went for these to keep the purple theme going.
You can fill the eggs with whatever you want, but candy-coated chocolate eggs are normally well liked. Stay away from creme eggs though… I don’t know why anyone pretends to like those.
Spring themed homeware
I’m a big fan of mugs and seem to continue to amass more and more. Seriously, I have a mug for my star sign and a valentines themed mug… I might have a problem. but this adorable one (that’s actually really quite big and would be perfect for a big cup of tea or hot chocolate with 3-inches of whip cream) was only CAD$6 at Homesense. They have other colours if green isn’t your thing.
Small homeware bits like this can really fill out your basket (if they fit) and just add a fun touch of something a bit more less temporary than all the candy.
Lush is known for having some amazing seasonal products. So I ducked in to the store recently to see what they had in the way of Easter products. I’m not a big bath bomb person (please hold your gasps) and instead picked up these carrots. They’re actually bubble bars so you can crumble them under running water to give your some bubbles.
Basket and grass
An essential for any Easter basket is well… the actual basket. I picked mine up at Dollarama for $1.25 but you can get them at a variety of home stores for however much you want to spend. The Easter grass also helps add a bit of depth and colour to your basket and some padding to place everything, so don’t skip that step.
You really don’t need to spend that much money putting together a basket and if you’re going to add a bigger ticket item make it small. I spent about $20 putting together this basket. So if you have a lot of people to make baskets for or are on a budget it won’t be an issue.
What do you like to include in your Easter baskets? What do you like to receive? This entire week I’ll be putting out Easter content so check back in tomorrow to see what else is in store!
