Easter Gifts for Women
Processions at Easter where the women show off their new outfits and Easter bonnets have long been a traditional Christian ritual, according to History.com. The Easter parade is a big event in many towns across America. In Manhattan, for example, Fifth Avenue between 49th and 57th streets is shut down for an annual Easter parade. Play a role in your lady's Easter tradition by giving her a gift to suit her tastes.
Take your lady shopping for an Easter bonnet. She may prefer a modest hat, such as a pillbox or big-brimmed straw hat that matches a new spring outfit. Many designers show new spring hats that may attract her fancy. On the other hand, if she plans on walking in a parade, she may go for the frills and feathers that historically mark the Easter tradition. Let her choose the shop, and plan to spend the day as you take her out for lunch after the shopping trip.
A new Easter dress or jacket to go with her new hat ideally should be purchased and presented prior to Easter Sunday so she can coordinate her outfit. Comfort clothes such as the 100-percent cashmere robe at RedEnvelope always make suitable gifts appreciated by women. The soft polyester pajamas and robe at RedEnvelope are easy to care for and covered with bright flowers just right for spring. With summer on the horizon, consider a new pair of workout clothes or comfortable light-weight jogging suit.
Fresh-cut flowers brighten up any room, and many women are delighted with a bouquet. Head out early Easter morning to grab a bunch from a local garden stand, or have them delivered the day before Easter so she can use them to set her Easter dinner table. White lilies are the traditional Easter flower, or consider a potted lily or other potted plants so she can re-pot them and nurture them for months to come or replant them in her flower garden.
Easter candy fills department stores and specialty confectioner shops at Easter time. Splurge on her favorite to celebrate the end of winter and treat her to something she probably rarely buys for herself. Instead of going with the pre-wrapped box of chocolates at the big box store, take some time to visit a local candy maker and put together a customized basket of all her favorite sweets.
