Easter Gift Baskets
I’m sure most of us have many great memories of our Easter traditions as a child. My favorite memories were getting my Easter basket, having an Easter egg hunt and having Easter brunch with my extended family.
Easter is such a special time of year. I can recall fond memories of Easters past when my parents would hide brightly colored eggs in the yard and send my sister and I out to find them. What joy we had running around the yard, looking in every nook and cranny for the eggs we had hand decorated together the day before.
As I recall, whoever found the most Easter eggs always received a special gift, usually a dollar or two. That was a lot of money to us kids in those days.
After the hunt, we would get together with our extended family for Easter brunch. This was always the Easter tradition in my family. I can still recall the happiness and joy we shared as a family during those Easter gatherings.
But, the highlight as a child was eating our chocolates, jelly beans, marshmallow candies and other sweet treats from our Easter baskets. I think I always enjoyed digging through the plastic green “grass” the most. It was like discovering gold to dig through the basket and find one of the last few treats which had fallen to the bottom. And they were always the jelly beans!
Today, I get just as much enjoyment from watching my grandchildren having the same fun I had as a child. It’s wonderful to view another generation enjoying the traditions of the past that still remain so much a part of our culture.
Unique Gift Baskets
One of my new Easter traditions, is giving Easter gift baskets to my family and close friends.
They’re wonderful for the kids and the adults all appreciate them as well. Like me, they remember the joy of getting Easter baskets.
Easter gift baskets are filled with delectable treats that both children and adults can enjoy.
There are so many Easter baskets you can order online for adults and children alike. And, I think they are so much better than the commercial Easter baskets you see in stores.
I order enough for my friends and family, since Easter gift baskets can be shipped anywhere. I find that they make a great gift for kids or for the kid in all of us.
This year, I may even order one for myself. I may be older, but I still have a sweet tooth!
