When spring rolls around, the first big holiday is Easter. Kids (and some adults) all look forward to Sunday morning when they receive a basket from the Easter Bunny. This year, we are adding a twist to the holiday. Long gone are the days when an Easter Basket was your only option. You can now make your own Easter Box.
Disguise The Surprise is a set of gift-box dividers that allow you to create your very own gift box. There are 12 dividers in each set (4 different lengths). The dividers slide together around your gift items creating sections that hold your gifts in place. You move the dividers around until you get the best layout for your items. If you are mailing your Easter gift, a shirt box is a much better option than a bulky gift basket. It's a more affordable option and the dividers stop your items from moving around. Maybe you have a college student who can't be home for the holiday...send them an Easter box! Maybe you can't be with your grandkids for Easter...send them an Easter box!
You can make some super cute Easter boxes filled with holiday items, candy, spring colors, religious items...anything! Add some festive tissue paper, even basket grass or crinkle paper making a box filled with joy!
When I went shopping for items to use in the boxes you will see below, I could not control myself. There are so many adorable Easter themed items everywhere! Shop your local boutique stores, big box stores, your local grocery store, online stores or drug stores. I like to put together boxes that give you inspiration for your own boxes. Take my ideas and run with them. You could also copy the exact layout you see in the image.
Most Easter items would work for a boy or a girl. It totally depends on the child you are buying for. This box also has some easter eggs filled with candy (purchase plastic eggs at many stores). A bunny figit toy, a carrot jump rope and a 3 pack of summer sports balls all from Hobby Lobby. I also picked up a few items from The Dollar Tree like this bag of chocolate carrots and bunny erasers. I also added a wind up rabbit, a light-up bouncy ball and a 3 pk of Crayola slime. I found the slime at Target, but it's not on their website. It's either in the front dollar or the Easter section. This box used 4 white dividers (2 length & 2 width).
Even as kids get older, they still like to get gifts. This box would be great for a tween or teen girl. Any college student would LOVE to get a box like this from mom. A box is easy to mail off to college. I added a cross that she could hang in her room from Hobby Lobby. They have lots of options to choose from. I included several items from Target (but could also be found in other stores)...spring colored tank top, Easter bath bomb, spring shimmer trail mix and an Easter candy necklace. I also found this spring colored sticky note box (several sizes inside) at The Dollar Tree. Teens & college kids love gift cards. Add a couple to their favorite hangouts. This box used 4 clear dividers (2 length & 2 width).
This box was created with a teen boy in mind, but really could be used for a girl as well. Add a pair of spring colored sleep shorts/pants like the pale green ones in this box from Target (they are super soft). I found this really cute squishy carrot from Hobby Lobby, but you can also find on Amazon, I added some easter eggs filled with candy, a small chocolate bunny, bunny marshmallows, candy necklace and a pack f 3 spring colored bouncy balls. Teens/college kids love to play games with their friends. I added Exploding Kittens game. My kids love it! This box used 3 white dividers (2 length & 1 width).
Mom - Friend
Don't forget about mom. Or if you need a Spring/Easter gift for a friend (even her birthday), this would be a great option. This box includes a nice Lindt bunny (strawberry), spring colored light weight socks (fill the sides like the pink & green ones shown here), a spring umbrella she can carry like this one from Target, a bar of spring scent soap and an easter towel (I got the soap & towel from Home Goods). Add some fresh mints to fill the smaller sections. Mom would love this! So would any friend. This box used 5 white dividers (2 length, 3 width & 1 buffer strip).
As you can see, there are endless ways to assemble a really fun Easter Box for your people. As mentioned, they ship really well and look nice all laid next to each other in one box. Keep in mind when I am putting together several boxes to give you examples, I need to curtail my spending so my expenses don't get of hand. You can find really cute gifts at your local boutique stores as well. I fully support small businesses and wish I could shop at every one of them and share a link, but that's not possible. Use these boxes for inspiration and have some fun shopping. Our gift packaging options have not changed in years. Now we have another choice for our Easter gifts.
