I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend. I thought I would share with you the Easter gifts we gave to different family members. Here are the bags I made for my nieces and nephew. I don’t know why I took the picture before I added tissue paper and ribbon!
Olivia gave a little present to her Mom-Mom, my mother-in-law. We filled a pink bunny egg with candy and pink grapefruit hand soap to match her pink bathroom. We wrapped it in one of my sister’s handmade gift bags. I try to use her fabric gift bags as much as possible because they are 1.) just as pretty as paper bags 2.) better for the environment 3.) reusable by the recipient.
For our holiday weekend, we visited Olivia’s aunts. I used this pack of mini-margaritas-to-go and tiny tequila bottles to make grown-up Easter bags for the hostesses. I added colorful tissue paper and used stickers to monogram the bags.
A bottle of wine is always a great gift to bring, again using a fabric gift bag. This one has Easter eggs on it.
We also got this cute watering can from Target for my niece. We tucked gardening gloves and some seeds in the can so she can plant some flowers in her garden. She actually used this gift in the garden this weekend!
I also bought this cute gift bag for the “Easter Bunny” to fill for Olivia, I think I am going to save it to reuse each Easter.
And for anyone who was wondering, here is a picture of the finished caramel cake I made last weekend. To read about this and get the recipe, click here:
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was away with no computers or phones – it was great! Did you give or receive any gifts? Tell me how your weekend was. The comments have been slow lately – and I have no idea why, since I have a FABULOUS prize just waiting with your name on it!
