I always say that a great gift is is something you would love to receive but wouldn't necessarily purchase for yourself. These fun indulgences are sweet and springy, and I wouldn't mind seeing any of these in a grown-up version of my Easter basket this Sunday!
Gift cards in small amounts are always well received. Who doesn't love treating themselves to a free latte, new music or a new book? (Starbucks, iTunes, Amazon)
Sparkly Baubles: simple, fun spring jewelry adds sparkle to any Easter basket! (Wouldn't the earrings be adorable tucked inside an egg or tied up in a fun piece of scrap fabric!?)
Serenity Small Stone Drops, Stella & Dot
Lime Rose Studs, Bauble Bar
Candy Striper Bangle, Bauble Bar
Bubble Stud Earrings, Bauble Bar
Gourmet Treats: I like to indulge in a few special sweets, rather than a basket full of drug store candy. (Ha. Don't worry. I'll still probably binge eat jelly beans too.)
Graeter's Pints (while this technically can't be IN the basket - it would melt - Graeter's ice cream is one of my favorite indulgences!)
Cute Correspondence: I love stationary. Always.
