50+ Easter Basket Ideas


Easter baskets have always been one of my favorite gifts to put together for the girls. I have been collecting things for their baskets for a few weeks and just put them together today. Now to hide them until Easter! I try to avoid including too many items that will just end up in the trash/donate pile right away and I also try to avoid a crazy amount of candy. But enough that I can "help" the girls eat it, ha! 

Here are some of my favorite things to include in their baskets: 

- Books. I always include a few in each Easter basket. These can range from children's devotionals to this book from Joanna Gaines.  

- Some clothing items like these seersucker shorts, a bunny purse, headbands, or a pair of sandals 

- A gift that involves them taking care of something or doing a craft. This year I chose more of a gardening theme and I got these mini grow kits. You could also do a bath bomb kit or a color your own 3-D puzzle

- New beach towels for the upcoming summer are something else I added this year. These mini towels are the perfect size for the kids. They can be monogrammed for summer camp! 

- Items for school like colored pens or a new water bottle with their favorite character - these are my favorite! I bought more expensive ones last year and they started leaking on the first day. These have held up perfectly all year!

- I also add some faux or fresh flowers to the side of their basket. The girls LOVE flowers and this is a way to make the basket even prettier! Here are 50+ non-candy ideas for Easter baskets! Simply click on the image to go straight to the item!







Girls Spring Break Swimwear Guide

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Spring break for the girls is just around the corner, and they both grew out of their bathing suits from last year. It's amazing how quickly they go through sizes! I've been scouring the internet looking for affordable and cute bathing suits for the three of us and thought that I would share what I've found (affiliate links are used). It is amazing what adorable options are available at places like Amazon, Old Navy, Target & Walmart. I also included some other retailers that had adorable suits, as well as accessories such as cover ups, sandals and totes.
