Easter Basket Inspiration – Quarentine Edition

Given the current state of the world at the moment Easter looks a little different this year, but you know what that’s okay because we are all in this together. I improvised and used a basket that I already had, threw in a few items I already had that I was holding onto for a special occasion, and thank goodness for the Target Dollar Spot. (Yes I picked these few items up while doing my “essential grocery shopping” so sue me… lol) So not everything is brand new but it’s the thought that counts.

I am beyond grateful for the amazing small shops that collaborated with me to help create this beautiful basket for my daughter this year. Most of these small shops are offering expedited shipping, and contactless curbside pickups. If you order today, or tomorrow you should still be able to get your items in time for Easter. If you’re still looking to fill your kiddo’s baskets with some fun items check out these shops below! I highly recommend them.

Remember, it’s not what’s in the basket that matters the most, it’s the love that you put into it. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Easter.

Easter Basket Inspiration

Hey you guys it’s that time of the year again! Easter, and this year I really made it a point to make it extra special for my daughter by customizing her basket with a bunch of fun goodies from small shops that I absolutely adore! (Note: most of these small shops I collaborated with so the items were gifted). The other items in my baskets I picked up locally from the Target dollar spot. *Disclaimer* whether or not you go all out for Easter and buy your kids tons of things, or you just celebrate the day with them YOU are doing any amazing job. This blog post is purely for inspiration! I will be listing all of the small shops below along with tagging a photo with a link to all of the items. Most of these can still be ordered in time for Easter (some with the request of expedited shipping). I hope you all enjoy these photos & that they provide some fun Easter Basket Inspiration! Due to timing some of the items listed below didn’t make it into the basket in time but I am still adding the links below to them! Thank you to all of these amazing small shops & brands for working with me on this fun little collaboration!

Both of the baskets were from Target. Along with the stuffed carrots, mini sunnies, garden tools, both press on nail sets, the wooden eggs, the ceramic bunny, the white ceramic house, and the basket filling, those were all found in the Target dollar spot.

Hand-Crafted Custom Jewelry by Happy Cactus Brand

I am so excited to share with you guys my most recent collaboration with Happy Cactus Brand aka Jess. She is seriously one of the sweetest chicks ever, and her jewelry is hand-crafted to perfection! When I first received my package in the mail I was so thrilled (no like seriously, so freaking excited). Everything down to the packaging and branding were on point! (This girl knows her stuff and has major style!)

I decided to have her customize a bar necklace for me that says, “The Gypsy Mama” and a dainty gold cuff that says, “a gypsy soul, a wild heart” and no joke just the few times I’ve already worn them out I have had so many people ask me where I got them from! The best part about Jess and her super rad brand is A. The name obviously lol Happy Cactus Brand? (She had me at Cactus lol) I mean seriously is that not the cutest brand name you’ve ever heard of? Who wouldn’t want to buy jewelry from a brand with that rad of a name?! B. Her stuff is so stinking cute, and the quality is impeccable! C. It is super affordable. I know that you all know how popular those “bar necklaces” are and a lot of other shops that I checked out were double if not triple the price of hers! So truthfully, if you want excellent customer service; some really fun packaging and a unique custom made piece of jewelry that is going to last then head over to her shop now! She has some adorable dainty rings on sale for Valentine’s Day too.

Here is the link to her shop: Happy Cactus Brand
