Let’s talk about family Easter gifts! Easter is a time for family – extended, immediate, and those we lovingly call family.
Who remembers Aunt Darla’s marshmallow salad at brunch? Sunrise service in your Sunday best? Hats for the ladies, pastel suits for your little brother? Baskets of eggs and treats, and for some reason, a bunny? It never gets old, right?
All of these things lead to a celebration, because the resurrection of Christ is always worth celebrating. When you think of a celebration, you think of joy, feasts, and gifts. These things contribute to a wonderful and memorable time for the whole family. Joy comes from the Lord, feasts come from everyone pitching in and cooking, and gifts come from… well, see below!
We’ve rounded up some great Easter gifts that go beyond the typical plastic eggs and candy. You’re welcome!
17 Best Easter Gifts for Families
1. Create an Easter Basket for the Whole Family
If you’re feeling like getting down with your crafty self, why not learn how to weave an actual basket from scratch? It’s a skill passed down from generation to generation but if your family was more of the shopping-at-the-Dollar-Tree kind, sometimes you need a little help.
The video above is a great tutorial to get you started on the fabulous new hobby of basket-weaving.
Here are some creative gifts to add to your Easter basket:
- Easter Joke Book. Because nothing says holidays like learning some new Dad jokes!
- Eggs in Your Basket. It’s tradition. Don’t mess with tradition or the bunny will getcha!
