Easter Baskets Para Todos

Forget about those candy-filled Easter baskets that deliver sugar comas and hyper kids running around in their Sunday’s best. Instead, try these suggestions for fun and personalized canastas for all ages. 


Spring is here, so fill her basket with warmer-weather essentials: Sunglasses, bright nail polish and sheer-and-shimmery lip glosses are perfect for the little girl who loves to primp. CoverGirl Lipslicks Smoochies will deliver a sweet shine -- she won’t even miss the Peeps! For a healthier treat add low-sugar homemade cookies bundled together with a cute festive ribbon. 


After a long winter, the kids are surely ready to play outdoors again. Fill his basket with sidewalk chalk, a Frisbee and bubbles. Still feel the need to satisfy his sweet tooth? A few homemade dark chocolate covered marshmallow clusters are easy to make and not chockfull of saturated-fats like most store-bought candy. Be sure to include options for rainy days as well, like baseball cards or one of his favorite DVDs. 


It’s all about kicking back for the adult Easter canasta. Fill it with everything your loved one may need to relax: bubble bath, a ticket for an at-home massage or a good book that you know is on their reading list. A nice grown-up sweet treat could include a bottle of wine or selection of flavored teas.

The real treat though, is spending this Easter holiday together, so enjoy!
