Easter is coming up in a few short days…today I thought I’d highlight a few creative (sugar-free!) ideas for stuffing your loved ones’ Easter Baskets.
TWG Haute Couture ‘Tea Party’ Collection – From $10
Pretty pastel hues and festive rabbits make this luxe tea collection a perfect pick for any spring tea drinkers. A black tea with a candied sweetness, this scrumptious dessert tea pairs perfectly with your favourite Easter treats. Nab it online or buy in-person at the TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in Vancouver.
Zing Thumb Chucks – $10 @ Zing.store, Toys “R” Us, Walmart, and Mastermind Toys
Into each generation there’s a toy or two that just captures the imagination for being so engrossing. Thumb Chucks have the potential to be just that. Consisting of two plastic bouncy balls connected by a ‘belt’, as you spin the Chucks around they’ll actually light up. There are dozens of tricks to master in this game of dexterity; truly talented kids can do more than one Thumb Chuck at a time. Holy cool!
Flopsy Face Wash Jelly – $9.95 @ Lush
Put a little spring in your step with a dab of this face wash jelly. Inspired by Lush’s wildly popular shower jellies, a little goes a long way to purifying your skin. With zesty lemon and bergamot, it’s the perfect pick-me-up before hunting for Easter eggs!
Easter Chick Egg Cup – $8 @ Indigo
Nothing says Easter like eggs – even if they’re of the breakfast variety. Crack open your breakfast with this adorable egg cup. Not into the slight meta-ness of this cup? They’ve also got a bunny version. Makes a great host gift!
Footed One-Piece for Baby – $11 @ Old Navy
My niece actually arrived on Easter Sunday two years ago – if there’s a new little one in your family this spring, gift ’em with some seasonally appropriate wear in the form of an adorbs onesie. This same one-piece also comes in an egg print!
Glass Mason Jar Mugs – $13.99 for Four @ Bed, Bath & Beyond
Rendered in candy-coloured hues, these festive mason jars can easily be split up so everyone in the family gets their own for summer sipping. Best of all, no more fighting over whose glass is whose!
eos Spring 2017 Limited Edition Set – $8.80
Little eos lip balms already look like pastel-coloured Easter eggs, but they’re made extra special in this cute little Spring-themed two pack. Nourish your lips with the brand’s Visibly Soft Cucumber Melon (new!) and Coconut Milk lip balms.
Umbra Anigram Ring Holder – $7.99 @ Well.ca
Keep this little guy close to your sink or in the bathroom to stash your rings when washing up. Not only does it look adorable, it’ll keep your gems from accidentally going down the drain.
