A Garden Inspired Easter Basket

This year I wanted to try my hand at a themed Easter basket for the adult gardeners in my life. I think adults secretly enjoy getting treats on holidays still... just not so much candy or toys like our younger counterpart self. Here's how I assembled this little basket tin for this Easter:

I love how Target puts out new twinkle and string lights for each season and holiday, and I'm such a sucker for buying them all! These insect lights are going to be great in this basket. I don't think I've met many gardeners who turn down bulbs or new gardening gloves, so these both also could be included. 

Fairy gardens are all the rage right now and my favorite shop for accessories is My Fairy Gardens. Of course, no gardening basket of any type would be complete without seeds. I like the pollinator push garden collection; there's one for attracting bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies.

My favorite gardening book to gift others is Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden. It's the go-to how-to guide book for planting almost any flower, and the photographs are to die for visually. 

Finally, I think a new water bottle is perfect for a gardener since they spend so much time in the sun and heat during those upcoming summer months. Toss in a snack to munch on, and this Easter basket is complete for the gardener in your life.

A Rabbit Themed Easter Baby Basket

Easter Baby Basket

Hippity, hoppity the Easter bunny is on his way to the babies and toddlers with a berry basket of Easter treats! I have a handful of little toddlers to celebrate Easter with this year and wanted to spread the cheer of the spring season, so I took myself to Target (because all good things happen at Target) and stocked up on the following to make these small Easter baskets for them all:

The classic tale of Peter Rabbit in board book form, food pouches (since sugary treats are not on the menu quite yet), these carrot teethers, and Easter wobble toys.
