If you're looking for a quick and easy gift idea, anyone will enjoy this. Just take a festive Easter container and put homemade or pre-packaged snacks inside for a sweet gift. We put chocolate covered pretzels and caramel popcorn inside the bunny canister above. This is perfect for loved ones, co-workers, neighbors, teachers, etc. The canister can be reused for years to come.
This is a healthier alternative to a traditional Easter basket with candy. It's loaded with nut clusters, trail mix, banana chips, mixed nuts, and granola bars. This would be a nice gift for people who don't eat candy or would like lighter snacks to enjoy on Easter. Kids will also enjoy the variety of snacks that they can put in their lunchbags for school. Parents will appreciate this basket because it doesn't contain any candy.
Kids will have fun making their own Easter bags. These brightly colored bags can be decorated a variety of ways. Artificial flowers and butterflies are perfect for a girl's bag, while stickers and pom poms can be used for a boy's bag. We also made religious bags that have foam stickers. This is a fun activity for kids parties, playdates, and bible classes.
Girls will love getting this sentimental and fashionable bag on Easter morning. The bag was plain except for the 'Smile God Loves You' message. We decorated the tote with colorful religious foam stickers, including the small crosses at the top. Then a flower was added for a finishing touch. We added grass and tossed in a bible, mini notepad, coloring book, and candy for a special treat. Girls can reuse it as a spring/summer handbag. This is also a cute project for kids parties, playdates, or bible classes.

Chinese boxes stand out no matter what you put in them. These durable plastic containers are perfect for holding candy and small gifts. The best part is that you can reuse them. For gift giving you can fill them with goodies for loved ones, neighbors, co-workers, teachers, etc. We filled the one above with toys and candy for Easter.
Chinese boxes are a unique alternative to baskets. Girls will be delighted when they get this bright pink box full of goodies! It has toys, candy, and a few egg picks. The finishing touch is the egg print bow tied around the middle. The box can be used as a goody bag or place setting for parties. The durable plastic material makes the box reusable.
