If you’re running out today to buy all the fixings for Easter baskets, here’s some advice:
Buy half the amount of candy and fill up the other half of the basket, bag or box with Easter- and spring-themed non-edibles. The temptation is to give a filled-to-the-brim basket of Easter sweets, but no one needs that much sugar.
We love delicious Easter candy as much as anyone, but know that we aren’t doing anyone a favor by overloading someone with it.
So here are some additional ways to fill the Easter basket.
Smaller baskets. There’s no need for Titanic-size gifts.
Hollow chocolate bunnies and eggs instead of solid ones.
Peanut butter-filled eggs instead of less nutritious fillings.
Easter-color beverages, like bottles of specialty diet sodas (look for Boylan’s) and Vitamin Water.
