3 Fun Easter Baskets Everyone Will Love
It’s hard to imagine celebrating Easter without baskets full of delicious chocolate and special gifts. In fact, filling Easter baskets has been a cherished tradition for centuries. This year Joy Cho, creative director and founder of the popular blog OhJoy.com, created three fun (and simple) Easter basket tutorials that will leave a lasting impression on friends and family.
1) Say “hoppy” Easter to close friends.
Creating a basket for a friend might not be the first thing that comes to mind when making your Easter to-do list, but it’s a great way to show them how much they mean to you. To make it unique, use a gold wire basket lined with a vintage scarf (both are items they can use again) and add colorful accessories like bracelets and desk items. These are practical gifts that will get them excited for spring.
2. Create adorable Easter baskets for kids.
One of the most exciting parts of the holiday for kids is waking up to discover treats in their baskets. This year, incorporate surprises they will love, whether it’s a few crayons or even a pair of cute sunglasses. Top it off with the perfect chocolate centerpiece, the iconic Lindt GOLD BUNNY, to bring joy to children of all ages.
3. Build mini baskets for teachers, co-workers or classmates.
Mini baskets are ideal any time you need to make a lot of small gifts at once. Get creative and use petite clear containers, filling with shiny shred to catch the eye. Search for tiny chocolates at the store that will fit inside, like the Lindt Little Chick 5-Pack. This idea is easy to customize for all ages based on how you decorate.
