Beyond Jellybeans and Easter Grass: Easter Basket Fillers You'll Want to Keep!

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Easter baskets!! Filled with candy and horrible Easter grass (do people still use that? We don't...) and toys that will end up in the trash in no time flat!

Unless... We try to be a little more intentional about what we put in those baskets. A beautiful book or two? A few homemade sweets (okay fine, and some jellybeans too, I'm not a monster)? And maybe some carefully chosen gifts from small shops you'd like to support? I've got some ideas (and coupon codes! and giveaway items!) for you:

She also sent a couple of Happy Easter Carrots that the kids ADORE and have been sleeping with and making pets of. Do your kids play with food as much as mine do?

Catholic items like the original crochet rosary roses, priest & nun peg dolls, and custom saint watercolors. An eclectic sibling shop with a wide variety of handmade goods - you just have to come and check us out! I've got my eye on their custom saint paintings for an upcoming First Holy Communion gift, and their peg dolls are beautiful! I got a set of the nun peg dolls for the kids for Christmas and now they've set up a dollhouse convent. It's amazing. Order by March 17 for custom items, order before Palm Sunday for in-stock items for Easter delivery.
Beautifully illustrated Catholic and other picture books. You'll find some lovely new saint books to add to your collection, as well as their newest release, "Joyful Colors of the Year", a poem about seasons.
We love the activity books and CDs we've gotten from Holy Heroes - the Glory Stories are perfect for car rides or times when I need a little quiet from the kids but don't want to resort to screen time. We were gifted the Father Leopold Lego set a few years ago and it's amazing

We love our Shining Light Dolls! Incredibly sturdy, adorable, baby-friendly, and so many of our favorite saints and Marian apparitions are represented! They just came out with a new line of stickers that are super-cute, too.

Wee Believers has sweet faith-based products for babies through big kids. They sent us the My Little Church Magnet Set and lately the kids have been playing with it every day - it's so fun, and a great tool for catechesis! I think the Noah's Ark Magnets would also be perfect for Easter baskets.
Sturdy and beautiful hair accessories that will complement any hair type - classic, sparkly, whimsical, and off-beat styles available to fit your every mood! I've used these for years and they've stood up wonderfully to heavy use, and are the only hair accessory I actually trust to hold my hair securely without giving me a headache!

Bleach-dyed t-shirts with marine and aquatic themes, and more! I love their St. Therese t-shirt. 15% off everything through Easter with code EASTER15!
