Easter is right around the corner, and I have some pretty adorable basket ideas that appeal to the modern family. Plus, there is a basket for adults too. Because let’s be real, we all wish it was socially acceptable to still get in on the Easter basket action, and now we have an excuse! You. Are. Welcome. xoxo Alexis of The Shift Creative
For the Young Artist
The first basket is an art basket for the innovative, imaginative, and young artist of the family! Purchase a canvas, watercolors, paint brushes, colored pencils, stickers, and more to make this basket one that will never vanish like chocolate eggs do (although we still love us some filled cadbury eggs), but rather be a catalyst for creativity!
Fun in the Sun
The second basket is a “fun in the sun” basket! Summer is approaching very fast, and if you’re in Southern California it might as well already be here! Fill this basket with summer necessities that your child will already need like, sunglasses, a beach towel, sunscreen, chap stick, beach toys, sandals, a beach cover up, swim suit/swim trunks, and some snacks- because whats a beach trip without some snacks? You can customize these ideas to fit your child, and add summer activities they enjoy!
For the Adults: Artisanal Treats
The last basket is one for friends and families to enjoy! It’s filled with yummy things to create your own cheese and fruit board! To make it more age appropriate I used a metal bin from World Market, and filled it with a french baguette, fig jam, olive oil with sun dried tomatoes and garlic, Mast Brothers chocolate, ginger beer, Brie cheese, and a Lift Coffee Roasters cold brew coffee. Seriously, just thinking about all this goodness makes me want to be outside on a warm summer evening pretending I am in Paris while enjoying my cold brew, and enjoying the richness of the Brie cheese. This is a basket that is not just limited for Easter, but would make a great gift all year long!
Hope you gathered some fun inspiration for your Easter Baskets this season making this special day even more special if there’s such a thing!
