This wicker basket with cream, personalized, scallop liner is gorgeous, timeless, and a high-quality option that is an instant Easter Classic.

This beautiful basket is timeless and something you want for each of your children with their name embroidered on the liner to make it even more special.
We love celebrating upcoming holidays with festive pajamas and these spring/Easter pajamas are perfect fan favorites for April. These 100% organic cotton, bunny “cottontails” pajamas will look adorable all spring long. The colors are sweet and will not fade. We do suggest sizing up from your child’s usual size as the sleeves can be a bit tight. Get a pair for siblings and parents to match!

3. For the Little Ones: Toomies Squeak Toy, Hide & Squeak Eggs
This toy checks all the boxes: on theme with your easter basket, adorable, your child will love it and educational. This toy can be enjoyed as young as 18 months but will grow with your child. Younger children will enjoy the vibrant colors and the fun squeaking sounds. As your child grows they will love cracking them open and then placing them back together. Older children will learn to recognize colors, shapes, and sorting.
4. A Fan Favorite for the Whole Family: Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch
Most folks are probably aware of the versatility of the Nintendo Switch, being compatible with your tv, tabletop, or handheld for on the go. Just add your favorite accessory like the wristbands, joy-con wheels, or, my husband’s favorite, fishing poles.
Animal Crossing is great for those days we cannot get outside, teaching your child how to garden, learn about many species of plants and animals by bug catching and fossil hunting, and even reel in a big fish! This is sure to be a fan favorite for the whole family.
5. The Best Of Children’s Book: I Love You, Funny Bunny
We are always looking for other options to fill those Easter baskets besides candy and we pretty much look for any excuse to buy a new children’s book. This book is perfect to cuddle up with your little one and giggle your way through I Love You, Funny Bunny not just at Easter but all year.
“With its read-aloud rhymes and adorable illustrations, you’ll discover all the fun and loving parts of your own relationship with your children. This special book tugs at the heartstrings as it celebrates the special bond between a parent and child.”
Fan Favorites to Freshen Up Your Home
6. Freshen Up Your Front Door with a New Easter Wreath
Hosting Easter brunch is the perfect excuse to update the wreath on your front door for springtime. We are digging all things bunny ears for Easter and spring this season, the wreath for our front door is no exception. This beautiful wreath is decorated with colorful assorted flowers, leaves, and pastel Easter eggs. Measuring 18 inches, it makes the perfect statement for your front door.
7. When Sitting at the Kid’s Table Isn’t So Bad
We are just swooning over these adorable bunny ears, natural, rattan children’s seating for your kids’ table this easter and all year long. We can imagine a lot of tea parties and craft projects happening around just your child’s table- not to mention a fan favorite at Easter brunch. These chairs are a great personal touch to add to a solid white table and are a fan favorite.
8. Spring Cleaning: Tide + Bleach Cleaning Hack
Whether in preparation for hosting Easter or just for your spring cleaning, this cleaning hack will become a fan favorite in your house too! You can pretty much ditch all of your cleaning solutions and replace them with this GoClean’s fan-favorite mixture.
Directions: Fill a large bucket or your sink fill with HOT water. Mix in one teaspoon of Tide Powder Laundry Detergent and one tablespoon liquid bleach. Keep in mind a lot of cleaning supplies cannot be mixed with bleach. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe down all surfaces, walls, and baseboards. This will remove years of stains and will also disinfect your home.
9. Time to Refresh Your Bathroom Towels
We are looking to take small steps to hit refresh on our home. These high quality towels are great update on your old, stained towels and will jump start your day or help you wind down with ease. The towels that have a cult following not only have a sophisticated look with rounded edges and beautiful piping but include a discreet hook for faster drying. On top of that we love their personalization options.
10. Have Your Laundry Smelling Like Spring
Looking for something that inspires you to finish your laundry? This Luxury detergent will have everything smelling amazing – it makes not only your clothes but your entire home smell so luxurious and can make doing laundry almost feel like a treat. These days, it really is the little things that bring you joy! Unfortunately, this detergent is pricey but a little goes a LONG way.
You can make the Tyler Glamorous Wash last even longer by adding a splash to your regular unscented detergent such as Tide Free and Clear. All of the scents are fabulous, but the “Diva” is a longtime favorite followed by “Kathina” which has a bit of “Le Loba Santal” / masculine scent. The 9,000 five stars review should be an indication of just how much you need this detergent in your life.
Fan Favorites for in the Kitchen
11. Kitchen Hack: Steaming Eggs
Steaming your eggs is great to prepare those easter eggs or just if you eat a lot of hard-boiled eggs. This is a bold statement but there is a reason it is a fan favorite: steaming your eggs will change your life! Steamed eggs are the easiest to peel “hard-boiled” eggs with tender whites. Add 1 inch of water to a large pot. Place steamer inserts inside cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add eggs to the steamer basket, cover, and continue cooking for 17 minutes for hard-boiled.
Serve immediately if serving hot. If serving cold, immediately place eggs in a bowl of ice water and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before peeling. To peel, first gently tap hard-boiled eggs all over to thoroughly crack the shell, then remove the shell under a thin stream of running water. (The water helps get under the shell and lift it off the egg.)

Maybe you are curious about the new air fryer trend or looking to eat healthier this spring. If you are like us, you were very hesitant for one more kitchen gadget to take up counter space. What if we told you you can have your air fried cake and eat it, too? Many folks have swapped out their crockpot for an all in one Instant Pot, well now you can add another function to your loved instant pot. Turn your instant pot into an air fryer: With one add-on accessory, unlock a whole new set of cooking techniques that allow you to crisp food right in your IP with the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid.
14. Fan Favorites for Setting Your Table: Scalloped Placemats
One of our new year’s resolutions was to sit and eat at our table more often. Having an updated table setting may not only leave you feeling inspired to dine at the table (leads to more dinner conversations with the children and hubby than sitting in front of the tv) but even hosting Easter brunch. We are loving these scalloped placemats for not only spring but year-round.
15. Kitchen Staple: Salt Pig
Ever notice those adorable salt containers by someone’s stove? Not only are they cute, but they serve a function. These are called Salt Pigs, if this is a new term for you you may be wondering why pig? This is from an old Scottish dialect that revealed that “pig” was a common word for an earthenware jar or pot. The salt pig shape helps prevent debris or dust from getting into your salt and allows for easy scoping. The interior materials are usually made of unglazed ceramic to help absorb any moisture in the air keeping the salt dry.
Fan Favorite Fashion for Her
16. Fan Favorite: Easter Outfit for Her
It seems every year we plan our kids and our outfits for Easter in adorable spring dresses and every year we wake up to a cold, dreary Sunday morning. This year we vow not to purchase an outfit we won’t get to wear. Instead, we are investing in this inexpensive skirt that can be paired with so many options. Wake up to a cooler morning? Wear a light blue (still feels like spring) sweater with this skirt. Finally a warm, sunny Easter? Pair it with a cotton, short-sleeved top, and a fun necklace. Either way, you are prepared and this is guaranteed to be a fan favorite year-round.
17. Knit Braided Sweater to Pair with your Easter Skirt
If you are already purchasing that beautiful skirt, you might as well purchase the full ensemble and have a complete outfit you can swap pieces in and out. This sweater not only looks great with that beautiful skirt but would also look great with many other pieces in your closet in that beautiful shade of blue.
18. Light and Bright Fan Favorite Joggers
While this has surely been the year for loungewear, we do not see that going away anytime soon. Simply update your loungewear with this terrycloth set in pale cream. It is the perfect weight for spring days and the color completes your spring refresh.
19. We are Fan Girling over Overalls this Spring
These overalls are going to be a fan favorite this spring and into summer. We love the simple look of these gauze overalls with a white bodysuit and sneakers, dressing up overalls with a floral gauzy top underneath and wrap sandals, or simply thrown on over a bathing suit this summer. These are so comfortable and flattering at the same time.
20. A Spring Refresh On Your Classic Tennis Shoe
All fan favorites come back? You may remember these comfortable, versatile, and fun shoes from the 80s and 90s. Well, they are back and better than ever. They will update your mom’s uniform for running around town or on family trips to the park. We love the icing, white, and ballet pink color pallet for a spring refresh.
We hope this list of fan favorites have you inspired for a fresh, clean start in April and looking forward to warmer days. With our fan favorites you now have planned your little one’s Easter basket, Easter brunch, refreshed your wardrobe and your home. We hope you enjoy your time with your family and trying some of our favorite finds for April.
