Gardening Themed Easter Baskets

How to fill a garden themed Easter basket.

Think of Easter baskets the same way you would a themed gift basket.  Everything in an Easter basket does not have to be all chocolate bunnies all the time.  As a matter of fact I wrote an entire article for DIY Network with 15 Themed Easter Baskets That Aren’t Filled With Candy.  You can make baskets just for babies, with a dinosaur theme or perhaps your little wants to be a rockstar.  Once you think beyond Little Bunny FooFoo the options – like gardening themed – really open up.

      Thank you Sue! Anything that works as a themed Easter basket, just remove the eggs and it makes a great gift basket year round.

      Thanks Jamie. My son has a peanut allergy and don’t get me wrong he has a sweet tooth to be reckoned with, but when there are candy free options I always try and go that route.
