So, if you are like me, you have procrastinated your Easter basket making, egg dying and gift buying until now. Don’t panic – there is hope. Here are a few last minute gift ideas guaranteed to make a hit without breaking the bank.
Instead of using a basket this year, try a pail and shovel set. They can be found at almost any dollar store and can be personalized with a paint pen.
Stop by your nearest Home Depot or garden center and pick up your favorite annuals. Cut the six- or eight-pack cartons into individual containers and place in an Easter-themed treat bag (found at any dollar store), along with some grass and jelly beans.
Deviled Egg Kit
Take a dozen dyed eggs and place them back into their carton. Attach a recipe for deviled eggs, along with a card, and wrap up in a decorative ribbon.
Vintage Easter Photo
Scan, print and frame an old Easter family photo. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you can make a small gift album of photos from Easters past.
No Candy Basket
A craft kit consisting of coloring books, crayons, markers, stickers and a pad of paper can be packed into a reusable plastic container.
One DVD, along with some popcorn, Goobers, Raisenets and a bottle of soda makes for a great Easter treat!
