Easter is almost upon us! Candy seems like the easy gift idea, but here are 10 of my favorite Easter Basket gifts that aren’t candy!
My kids love candy — doesn’t every kid? But I don’t like giving them candy as a gift for every holiday. So while I know they are hoping for an Easter Basket filled to the brim with candy, that isn’t what they get. Their Easter gifts are almost all non-candy — here are my favorite gift ideas for Easter this year, that aren’t candy!
