Gift baskets are some of the most popular Easter gifts. Following is a brief description of the different kinds of Easter gift baskets available in stores or online.
Chocolate egg themes
These gift baskets are filled with chocolate wrapped in colorful foils and other decorative wraps. They can have several small eggs or two or three large ones. The eggs are either solid chocolate or hallow ones that you are filled with candy. The more decorative the chocolate or the craftier it is, the more expensive it will be. A gift basket thats filled with exquisitely crafted chocolate may not be an appropriate gift for kids; its more suitable as a gift for adults.
Anything and everything
Some Easter gift baskets have everything from key chains to cookies and T-Shirts. While it may sound like a good idea to give a gift basket that has something of everything, it doesnt really make a good gift because it neither relates to the holiday nor to the person you are giving the gift to.
Easter fruit baskets
Easter isnt just a religious holiday, lots of people associate it with spring and for that reason flowers and fruits are a popular Easter gift. Easter fruit baskets and fruit bouquets are a good gift. Fruit baskets are best sent as business gifts while fruit bouquets can be both an Easter gift and a centerpiece of Easter lunch.
Candy filled baskets
These baskets will have lots of candy and chocolate in it and it may not necessarily be packed to look like eggs or bunnies and are more than likely to give kids a sugar high. They are best ordered for parties where the content can be put out in proper quantities and not necessarily as a gift. That goes for cookie baskets as well. Cookies arent as big a part of Easter as candy and chocolate so if you skip the cookies, its no harm done.
Bunnies and chickens
A lot of people associate bunnies and chickens with this holiday; others will associate it with flowers. This is why you can find some really dumb Easter gift baskets that are filled with fake flowers, stuffed chicks and bunnies and maybe some chocolate. Theyre extremely cute and absolutely useless. If youre shopping online and see one of these you might just end up ordering one for your kids. Needless to say they will not be well received because your kids will have outgrown this stuff and because these gift baskets arent really a gift.
