love putting Easter Baskets together! I like to make them very pretty, with
bows and decoration. I also like to make them suit the person receiving the
Filling baskets for kids is easy - the stores are full of stuff for kids - it's the adult baskets that can be a challenge. I've tried to put together some ideas and some buying links to help you create the perfect baskets for your loved ones!
Wal-Mart had a section recently called "shop by color" and it inspired me. It's a good idea for many gift occasions, but especially when filling a basket, since all the gifts are displayed, rather than covered in gift wrap.

I find when I do baskets like this, my eye gets trained to look for those colors throughout the store, and I end up finding interesting basket fillers that I would not normally think of from the 'easter' aisle. Check the sporting goods section, toys, pets, health & beauty, garden... etc...
Pastel colors are the easiest during spring for color-themed baskets, but for guys I also saw red, blue, and camoflauge baskets. Finding candy and toys for those baskets are a bit more of a challenge, but not too hard if you venture off the easter aisles.
EASTER BASKETS FOR MEN

I have to think of something else this year... :)
Be creative... It does not have to be a "basket" at all... most hobbies have specialized storage totes and containers that can be filled with small accessories and easter candy, for a fun and functional easter treat!

Canvas Totes and purses can be decorated and filled for the ladies as well
the hostess... how about making an easter basket with a sophisticated
She'll enjoy it for years to come!
like to tuck a silk flower or two in the ladies baskets,
and often a piece of jewelry, or a pastel candle.
Speaking of candles, I found some plain, pastel colored egg-shaped candles, (6 for a dollar!) at an outlet store! I bought some of every color!!
They'll be a great alternative to candy, especially for folks who are dieting!!
the lining, or 'filler', I sometimes use tulle, instead of Easter-grass,
or lace, or a pretty dish cloth!
Perhaps Dried Rose Buds & Petals would be a lovely basket filler!
