Easter Basket ideas for Kids AND Adults

By 11:13 PM , , , ,
Easter will be here before we know it and if you are planning your Easter basket for your special someones I have a few ideas for you.


I recently ordered this personalized book for my little guy and absolutely LOVE IT. It includes his name on every page and his picture is in the book twice which he thinks is the coolest thing ever. I had every intention of saving it for his Easter basket but loved it so much I simply could not wait to give it to him. He loves it as well. We literally read it four times last night. The story is great and such a great way to explain the meaning and purpose behind Easter to your kiddos.

Another favorite place to find Easter basket goodies is the Target dollar spot. I recently stocked up on $1 Paw Patrol items (which is his favorite show right now) to stuff his basket with on Easter. I scored some socks, coloring books, tattoos, and candy. 

Or, if you want to go the easy route and yet still really impress your child, see below...


If you are looking for a cool Easter basket idea for your young child, adult child, spouse, or friend Gourmet Baskets make some AWESOME baskets. I recently received this metal beer bucket basket as a gift from Gourmet Baskets and my hubby was SO excited. It came stocked with several specialty beers, popcorn, candy, and more and is all stuffed in a functional yet adorable metal tin "gift bucket."

They also sent me this awesome Easter basket that could be for a child or adult. It is truly awesome. 

Another favorite Easter basket idea for adults is to add a few tickets to experience something together. I am a huge fan of "memory" gifts and like to stuff tickets or certificates in Easter eggs and send the adults on an adult egg hunt. 

I hope you found these ideas helpful. 
What is your favorite item you have ever received in an Easter basket?

Time flies. How is it already March? 

Last weekend we had the opportunity to spend as a couple with a few of our awesome friends (who just happen to make up our church small group) in the mountains and it was AMAZING. We had the best time. We laughed and laughed and laughed some more. It was good for the soul! Oh and the mountain roads were CRAZY.

Currently I am in St. Louis for a work trip and it is freezing. 

OH - and I found the BEST yard sale find ever last weekend. I only paid $20 for this you guys. Worth. every. penny. 


So far this year I have finished:

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
LOVED IT. Give it a 9/10.

Magnolia Story by the Gaines
Also loved it! Another 9/10. This one I of course had to read on my plane flight down to Waco (which you can read all about here). It was great. Really great writing and so interesting. 

Currently I am reading:  

The Secretes of Midwives by Sally Hepworth
So far so good. Good but not great. I think it is wrong to rank before you are finished so I will rank once I finish. Look for my ranking in a later post. 

The Optimistic Workplace by Shawn Murphy
Ok so I am only a little over one chapter in to this book but so far I love it! Stay tuned for a final ranking once I finish.


The Bible App's Devotional Plans. 

Ya'll I love these. You can download free devotional plans (many are only 5-7 days long which I love) on just about any topic through the Bible App for FREE. They are really good studies and are offered by some of my favorite authors. 

I just finished "Your Home is An Embassy," and I will never think of my home the same way again. Highly recommend it. 

Currently I am working through "40 Days of Lent," and "Find Purpose and Passion In Your Daily Work."


We have booked our summer vacation! Get ready...we are going back to the happiest place on earth! Spending the first half of our week at the beach and the rest at Disney. SO EXCITED. Even though we were just there last May (and technically I was at Disneyland in November) we can't wait to get back! 
BIG NEW - prepare yourselves! We are going to build our dream farmhouse. We are in the very early stages of planning right now but having a blast designing. For those of you who have built your forever home please send me all your tips! 


All the bills I need to pay this weekend, errands I need to run, and all the steps to get our current house ready to list on the market. Oh and meeting with a lender to find out exactly how a construction loan works. That's not the fun part. I just want to start designing and planning. 


These two guys make me SO happy. The littlest one makes me laugh every day. He is such a pill and so sweet at the same time. His latest line is "Mommy, you my best buddy." Be still my heart.
