This Easter, tap into her creativity by surprising her on that special Sunday morning with a curated basket full of items she'll love.
Just because the Easter basket is for her doesn't mean you can't add something that benefits you, too. Coloring books offer up a number of psychological and developmental benefits for kids, and the one we've chosen is perfect for the holiday. Plus, it can be personalized. Imagine her delight Easter morning finding a customized coloring book with her name on it in her Easter basket. You can also help her hone her fine motor skills with a cross-stitch kit.

Bunny ears and bunny slippers will look simply adorable in a little girl's basket and even cuter on during Easter brunch. The fuzzy slippers will become her new favorite nighttime essential, while the ears will make your Easter so much more fun. Meanwhile, candy is an Easter basket must (and can be enjoyed at any age).
