Martha Stewart Iridescent Glitter

Add festive touches to your basket with sparkle and shine. Consider a sprinkle of Easter confetti or pastel-colored ribbon. If you want to get really fancy, add a glitter-encrusted handle. Try using Martha Stewart iridescent glitter for a that extra Easter glimmer to your Easter basket.

Sweet tooth


Candy is a must-have in any Easter basket. (If your child's a little on the energetic side, you may want to sneak in some sugar-free candy.) An essential Easter candy is chocolate -- more specifically, Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. Also, jellybeans -- more importantly, Starburst Jellybeans. And, of course, Peeps -- it's just not Easter without Peeps.

A little bubbly


If your Easter basket recipient is over 21, then including a bottle of wine is more than acceptable. White wine is ideal because it's light -- by Easter, it usually feels like spring, so white wine goes hand-in-hand with the season. A bottle of sauvignon blanc or chardonnay will do the trick. If your recipient is more of a red wine enthusiast, then consider a bottle of a lighter red variety like a pinot noir or gamay. If you're giving some Easter cheer to a minor,  include some sparkling cider or sparkling juice!

Special touch

Easter socks

Every Easter basket has that special something to it. Whether it's a present or a message, there's always a main course in an Easter basket! To finish up your basket, add a gift card (it doesn't have to be for a huge amount) to their favorite coffee shop or store. If your recipient is young, include a favorite toy or a book. For close friends, you can include a pair of fun socks or a fun Easter-themed top.
