For your favorite horticulturist, choose a sturdy basket that can have a long life of service in the garden. We decorated ours using a palette of yellows and oranges, inspired by the early-blooming daffodils.
Martha Stewart Living, April 2000
Paint the basket, tie a bow to the base of the handle, then line the bottom with a bed of Easter straw and tissue paper. Add a pair of garden clogs, canvas gloves and aprons, pruning snips and shears, seed packets, and plant labels. Finish with a small pot of daffodils, a bag of lemon jelly beans, and a few decorated eggs.
