Not everyone is in love with chocolate (including me). So think outside of the Easter basket for non chocolate ideas : pens and pencils, stickers, cute post-it notes, flower and vegetable garden seeds , gummies and jelly beans.
The possibilities are limitless and many of these ideas can be bought/ordered and shipped from dollar and big box stores. For adults, fill their Easter Baskets with beautiful plants, garden seeds for growing vegetables and flowers, or gift cards.
Bute Remember , if you live with a cat or gifting to someone who does , DO NOT GIVE AN EASTER LILY. EASTER LILYS ARE HIGHLY POISONOUS TO CATS AND EASTER LILYS KILL CATS
