So Hershey’s is donating $10 per blog to the Children’s Miracle Network for every blog that participates in the Better Basket Blog Hop. Nancy @ Life With My Boys was awesome enough to pass a virtual basket my way and now I’m going to do the same!
You know Easter Baskets come in all shapes and sizes – some people get really into it with intricately decorated homemade Easter Eggs – some go the big old Egg fulla candy route. Since my kids are still young, I am avoiding candy-filled eggs and instead this year bought some Annie’s Bunny Grahams to fill a handful of plastic eggs for MM. When he is a bit older I’ll probably try decorating eggs with him, but right now I think I’d just be asking for a headache and broken eggs.
But since you bloggy buddies are a bit older – you know I’m not gonna skimp on the candy or the pretty! Here’s what my baskets would include if I could send you a real one:
- First off, the basket would be one of those beautiful wicker baskets that you could re-purpose for some terribly clever use in your home – lined with a nice fabric and just the right size for your needs of course.
- No Easter Basket in my life is complete without Reeses Chocolate Eggs so you will definitely get a handful of those, along with some Jelly Belly jelly beans (nothing but the best for my bloggy buddies).
- A fantastic book to curl up with, because there’s never a bad occasion for a new book.
- A gift card to the coffee shop of your choice so you can go read your book in the comfort of a plush chair while sipping some coffee and having a little treat from the bakery of course.
- If it were my kids, I’d give them a cute stuffed animal, because well that’s what you give kids, right? But for something a bit more age appropriate and socially aware, I’d adopt an animal in your name (like this adorable arctic hare) and include a picture and all the details of the cuddly friend you and I have taken into our hearts.
- And since no Easter Basket is complete with out an egg or two, I’d also include something like this (I do have an unlimited budget, right?).
So to the following friends – I wish I really could send you this basket – cause now I kinda want one, too!
