Traditional Easter Gifts
Easter has intense religious meaning for Christians, but even the secular crowd likes giving Easter presents. Every year, gift givers rely on traditional gift ideas when choosing their selections for loved ones. In 2000, consumers in the U.S. purchased $1.9 billion in chocolate bunnies -- proof that traditional gift giving continues. Rely on time-tested Easter gifts; you will never have to wonder what to buy, even when shopping for people who seem to have everything.
Children and adults enjoy unwrapping Easter basket gifts. Purchase an Easter basket that has a personalized basket liner. Buy baskets that have a cross or bunny theme. If your loved one does not like candy, pick a basket with Easter toys instead. You should give children baskets that they can carry easily.
There are plenty of classic and new Easter storybooks for children and book collectors. Purchase your child books about Peter Rabbit or Peter Cottontail. Other book ideas are coloring books, puzzle books and word searches. A child who loves to read will enjoy a Biblical storybook about Easter or a touch and feel book about lambs, ducks and rabbits.
Spring Flowers and Plants
Many people like Easter because it is the first holiday of spring, so giving spring flowers is a sensible, traditional idea. Spread the seasonal love by giving a live peace lily or tea rose bush. These traditional flowers are also good to offer as long stem arrangements. RedEnvelope has flower clubs you can enroll a loved one in. These clubs will send fresh spring flowers every month during your subscription. Other traditional Easter presents are window herbs, flowering irises and tulips.
Some families like to give jewelry to commemorate Easter. A tiny silver cross necklace, a butterfly pin or a pair of pearl earrings make the quintessential classic spring gifts. RedEnvelope's unusual egg necklace is a tiny replica of a Russian Faberge egg. Silver gifts like an Easter charm bracelet or a silver bunny ring are also nice.
Sweet treats like chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and malted candy eggs are traditional presents to give loved ones. For some variety on classic picks, buy jellybeans in tropical flavors or chocolate bunnies filled with crème fillings. Other gifts are a chocolate cross, marshmallow treats and foil-wrapped eggs. Pour individually wrapped candies inside an Easter-themed mug or cup to give as gifts.
