Easter Basket Blog Hop And ‘The’ Giveaway

Today I am linking up with the beautiful, amazing, awesome Sarah from “Our Journey”.  She is hosting a blog hop that showcases the goodies you are putting in your special people and pet’s Easter Baskets.

I thought I’d show you what I got for our niece’s this year.  I don’t always get them Easter Baskets because Andy’s family does a HUGE egg hunt for the 4 (now 5) grandkids.  I’m talking a few hundred eggs for 4 kids.  Ridiculous!  Since they go that route I don’t usually spend extra money on basket stuffers, but this year I decided the nieces might just feel too old to hunt Easter Eggs.  Addison is turning 14 next month (waaaa!) and Chloe will be 11 in June.  I had fun picking out ‘girly’ stuff for them.  And it turned out we didn’t do the egg hunt this year because it was a rainy day Sunday, so my planning ahead worked out for the best!

1. Found this cute basket at Dollar General for $3.  I thought my nieces could reuse it to put in their jewelry, nail polishes, make up – whatever! 

2. Candy – because what Easter Basket is complete without candy in it?

3. A $2 picture frame – I loved setting out pictures of me and my friends when I was a teenager.

4. Makeup – hello, TEENAGERS!  I found fun eye shadow, lip gloss, nail polish and nail tattoos.

Both nieces loved their baskets, they were a big hit! 

As for what the boys are getting in their baskets – you’ll have to come back next week to find out!
