I always seem to forget to get fun Easter baskets for my kids. Easter tends to creep up on me and I am left scrambling at the last minute, making a midnight run to the grocery store and picking though whatever is left: smashed Peeps packages, crushed chocolate eggs, and that bunny with the weird eye placement. But this year I am doing it the easy way and got my basket from GourmetGiftBaskets.com.
One of the best things about getting your Easter goodies here is that there are some great gifts that you don’t need to think about (Easter items start at $19.99), and shipping is overnight. Ok, that’s TWO things. Three if you count the lack of thought needed to put a fun basket together (it’s all done for you).
PLUS if you live away from a loved one and want them to receive a (literally) sweet gift you can do so with a few keystrokes. Here are the top 6 gift ideas, ready to ship in time for Easter Sunday:
1. BRAND NEW FOR EASTER 2016: HAPPY EASTER BROWNIE CAKE. Just $34.99.
Colorful, festive and mouthwatering, this new Happy Easter Brownie Cake is huge and should offer the equivalent of 30 brownies. It could also be a fantastic and fun centerpiece in an Easter buffet, as well.
2. BRAND NEW FOR EASTER 2016: SUGAR-FREE GIFT BASKET, $89.99.
Delicious, sugar-free treats can be hard to come by, but the Gift Giving Experts at GourmetGiftBaskets.com have searched high and low for the variety of offerings in this basket. This is the perfect gift for anyone avoiding sugar in their diet or for those living with diabetes, with a nice mix of sweet and savory treats. Rest assured there was no sacrificing great taste in any of these goodies – the wild Maine blueberry spread, sweet candies, and crave worthy snacks prove that you won’t be missing sugar at all.
While Grandparents are usually the ones purchasing great baskets for kids during this holiday, maybe the kids should get a basket like this for a grandparent who needs to avoid sugar this year. What a treat that would be for Grandma and Grandpa.
3. BRAND NEW FOR 2016: EASTER BASKET FOR MEN, $74.99. GourmetGiftBaskets.com is answering a real need here. Where else can you go to find a basket that the man in your life might love? Think about it. Well, this one many guys would salivate over, as it has SNACKS AND MORE SNACKS. And guys love snacks.
For starters, this basket has six different kinds of handcrafted gourmet popcorn — all in flavors favored by men like Buffalo, Honey Mustard, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar, Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper and more. Then there’s snack mix, garlic parmesan pita chips, and honey mustard pretzels, as well. Finally, Dads might get something they want from Peter Rabbit this year, too.
4. PERENNIAL FAVE — THE TOP-SELLING EASTER BASKET FOR KIDS — YEAR IN, YEAR OUT. DOUBLE-BUNNY EASTER BASKET. $119.99.
Every year for the past three years, these Double-Bunny Baskets have increased in sales by 20 to 30 percent and GourmetGiftBaskets.com predicts the same phenomenon will occur in 2016. Grandparents and parents alike love these because if you have two kids — all you need is one basket that they can HAPPILY share, given all of the goodies here and the TWO BUNNIES who are front and center. Of course, kids love these, too, because they are MASSIVE baskets and once you go with two bunnies in a basket — you usually don’t go back to just one.
5. EASTER CELEBRATION CAKE POPS. $49.99.
So let’s say you want to shake things up this year and surprise someone with a gift that’s delicious, but just doesn’t come in an Easter basket. Well, this is one choice that’s sure to please. These gourmet cake pops of rich chocolate, creamy vanilla, and perfect red velvet cakes are dipped into baths of decadent Belgian chocolates, drizzled with ribbons of pastel confections, and embellished with the sweet, festive appliqués.
6. AND LAST BUT FAR FROM LEAST, THE PREMIUM SPA WINE GIFT BASKET ANSWERS THE CALL FOR ALL MOMS WHO NEED SOME PAMPERING ON EASTER. $124.99.
Moms will love the lavender moisturizing body lotion and shower gel by San Francisco Soap Company. They’ll also feel amazing when they slip their feet into new terry cloth slippers. And they’ll look like a million bucks after using the premium skin smoothing brush, foam sea sponge, and all of the other great products. Lest we forget, there’s also a fabulous bottle of chardonnay for Mom to enjoy once all of the Easter egg decorating, Easter hunts and other merry making has concluded.
I received a gift basket in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
