Do your kids really need a lot of chocolate for Easter?

Do you need to give a spring or housewarming gift?

Having a garden party and looking for gifts for your guests?

Have a look at these.  There are so many possibilities.

This first set I put together for a friend and her family.  The pots are Bio-Pots that I picked up from Cost Plus World Market a while ago.  They are made from straw, rice husks and bamboo and recycle back into the earth.  I filled each with gardening tools, gloves, garden signs and a packet of seeds purchased from Target and Michaels.

I’ve always had a rule at Easter.  Not too much chocolate.  I normally put a few pieces inside eggs and hide them around the yard, but ever since Jay was little I’ve given a gift at Easter and/or handmade items.  These little kits were purchased at Cost Plus World Market and we will be giving these to the twins for Easter inside a large egg at the end of their bed.  I’m sure they’ll be very excited to grow their own flowers and vegetables.

What a cute idea! We don’t do much in the line of candy either, so I look for other ways to make holidays fun.

I love the idea of “life” for Easter. I don’t let my kids have lots of sugar at all. So, Easter baskets can’t just be full of sugar. I also don’t just want it to turn into another Christmas, with Easter baskets full of “things” like toys or clothes. But I love the idea of pushing it more towards spring and new life. These are perfect for that thought!RebeccaRootsAndWingsCo.blogspot.com

Love those bio pots. We’ll have to add those to our ideas. We’ve got more on our Celebrate Green blog for any of your readers wanting more ideas for Easter goodies. I agree, hold back on the sweets, and substitute treasures.
