I've never really celebrated Easter as personally I don't really think it's a 'holiday' or 'celebration' such as Christmas etc. Although it is an excuse to eat chocolate I guess! In January this year I started my own little business at home making gift hampers but I have now started to expand it slowly and making other gifts too such as Sweet/Chocolate Bouqets and other things too. As I was making Easter baskets for other people I thought I would treat my girls, nephew and one of my brothers to an Easter basket too. I tried to mix things that they like instead of sticking to one theme but I also put an Easter theme into it too. I've had quite a few orders over this Easter so I have been pretty busy which is what I like!
You can do all sorts of baskets for any occasion. They are so simple to do, however you do need the time and patience to do it. There are certain ways to put certain things into baskets, getting the right colours, products and basically getting it perfect for your customer. I loved making Easter baskets because there are so many different things out there so it's great when you're good at using your own imagination.
Sweet Cones are another great gift for people for any occasion. I have orders for parties and they are a great extra in baskets/hampers. You can make them so colourful or make them to suit whichever colour the person wanted.
What will you be giving your child this year for Easter?
Do you ever make Easter Basket or Gifts?
