Grown Up Easter Basket

Easter is just around the corner, and while I was shopping at the grocery store, and picking up a bag of Cadbury Eggs (my favorite), I began to reminisce about my days as a child.  I remember waking up early on Easter Sunday, and coming downstairs to a beautifully wrapped basket filled with goodies!  Most of these goodies were chocolate in nature, but as a I got older (yes I still got an Easter basket in High School) the items in the basket started to change!  My basket evolved from chocolate and stuffed animals to CD's, makeup, and accessories.  Now that I am married, I thought I would create my dream "grown up" Easter basket.  I made sure all of the items could easily fit into your standard easter basket! Most of the items can fit into the palm of your hand, and I am sure if you rolled up the shorts they would fit too! Anyway, I hope you enjoy and maybe it will give you some ideas!

Something "techie- This super-cute backup phone battery is the chicest way to charge on the go! backup battery for iPhone
