Easter Baskets For That Someone Special

We still have a few more days until Easter and we still have time to put those Easter baskets together. Instead of the normal candy in the baskets (of course unless it is chocolate!) why not try one of these ideas for an Easter basket.

  • For the gourmet cook in your house (not my house! LOL!) add some packets of exotic spices and herbs, plus a new cookbook and cooking utensils and place it in a new copper pot.
  • For the bird lover, place some binoculars, a collapsible cup filled with jelly beans and some colorful books on birds into a backpack making a great Easter Nest.
  • For the handyman, fill a tool belt with essential items like wood glue, nails, measuring tape and marshmallow Peeps.
  • For the teenage girl, replace high calorie chocolate candy with her favorite bath products, new dangle earrings, and a gift certificate to her favorite store.
  • For the golfer, replace his old white golf balls with bright pastel ones; (don't know how my son-in-law would like this. LOL!) add some new teas, a colorful new cap, and an appointment for lessons with the golf pro at the club.
  • For the college student, how about an address book, some stamps, pens, and a selection of funny greeting cards. Oh, and don't forget some extra cash.
