Easter Basket UpdateWritten by Bob Bassett
The Easter basket is a longstanding holiday tradition, so what could be more appropriate than an Easter gift basket? Whether it's a gift for nieces and nephews, grandchildren, or you simply don't have time to hand-assemble an Easter basket full of goodies for your own children, an Easter gift basket is sure to be well received.
For younger children, there are Easter gift baskets that contain plush toys like Teddy bears or stuffed bunnies. Look for candy and treats appropriate to younger children as well, with brightly colored wrappings. Of course, chocolate bunnies are always popular, too! You can even hide baskets and set up a scavenger hunt, complete with clues.
There are also more sophisticated Easter gift baskets available for older recipients. In addition to candy and chocolate, consider a wine or gourmet gift basket. Most online retailers can ship to other locations, so ordering an Easter gift basket online is a great way to say "Happy Easter" to distant friends or relatives.
A Gift for Any OccasionWritten by Bob Bassett
Gone are days of all-purpose fruit basket. Gift baskets are now available in every size and shape, containing everything from cookies to coffee to chocolate, and for every occasion, from holidays to weddings to new babies. When you are stuck trying to find "perfect gift," don't overlook a gift basket.
Birthdays are a great occasion for a gift basket. There are indulgent chocolate gift baskets or spa packages with lotions, bubble bath, and a loofah for her to pamper herself. For him there are baskets centered around his favorite sports team or activities like golf. For either, there are are a huge variety of baskets packed with treats catering to every preference.
Anniversaries are another good time to give a gift basket. Nothing is more romantic than a candlelit evening with a bottle of wine and chocolates, unless it's a picnic for two, complete with dinnerware and a blanket to sit on. For a luxurious surprise, there are gourmet baskets, loaded with cheeses, fruits, sweets, and other delicacies.
