Easter Baskets + Persnickety Gifts Giveaway!

19 March 2023

Remember in December when we talked about my two marvelous friends and their done-for-you holiday magic? Persnickety Gifts sources stocking stuffers, Easter baskets, birthday gifts, and more so that you can celebrate as a family with ease. If you love the idea of shopping small, curating thoughtful gifts, and creating everyday magic for your littles, but don’t have the patience, know-how, bandwidth, and/or desire to make it happen, this is for you!

Just like their stockings, their done-for-you Easter baskets couldn’t be easier: you choose your child’s age and gender on their website, and they send you a neatly-packaged bundle of goodies ready to tuck into their basket. No paying shipping from 15 retailers or breaking down 15 boxes – just handpicked delights from small and lovable businesses. (And no weird surprises, either – you can see everything that will be included right in the listing!)

So fun, yes? And lucky for us, Persnickety was kind enough to let me give away one done-for-you basket bundle! Just leave a comment here with which basket bundle you’d choose (age + gender – though of course they’re just suggestions – you know your kids best!). Consider following Persnickety on Instagram or signing up for their newsletter for a little holiday magic throughout the year, if you’d like.

I’ll choose a winner on Wednesday! (Updated to add: Congratulations to our winner, Carolyn!)

In addition to inviting me to host a giveaway, my pals were kind enough to send me a few items from their add-on collection. And friends, don’t sleep on this under-the-radar part of their business! It’s perfect for someone like me – who enjoys collecting things throughout the year and likes to include basics like shoes and pajamas, but loves the opportunity to round out what I’ve collected with fun items from small businesses (again without paying shipping multiple times or breaking down boxes).

Here’s what each of our kids will be getting in their Easter baskets this year, including goodies from Persnickety Gifts:

June, age 7, will have a Banagrams set, a new water bottle, rainbow stripe pajamas from the consignment sale, fruit nail stickers, a Sudoku book, a unicorn coloring book from a local store, a few chapter books (also from the consignment sale), a headband, the cutest color-changing markers, gummy bear barrettes (!), some candy from a local shop, and a bath bomb. We also included the Gospel of John from the Kaleidoscope collection – very excited about that.

Shep, age 4, will have a jungle animals sketch book, a Bluey coloring book, an alphabet activity book, water-grow animal capsules, a bathing suit, goggles, the best blue bath foam, a mini football, a giant bubble wand (!), a new water bottle, some candy from a local shop, and a bath bomb.

Annie, age 1, will have some farm animals (all our kids LOVE these), the next size up in Cientas and Natives (the latter I got at the consignment sale!), a bathing suit, new socks, the cutest rainbow wand and crown, a copy of Laura Wifler’s new picture book, and a bath bomb.

Thank you so much to Julie + Irene for letting me share this giveaway! I hope you win! :)

I always love seeing how you fill your baskets and stockings. And I love the idea of persnickety – especially their big girl basket!

How fun! I would choose a Big Kid Boy basket for my two girls (!) because it includes so many new-to-us surprises.

March 19, 2023 9:14 pm

what creative ideas from you and these bundles are so great! I would choose the preschool girls basket for both my 2 and 4 year old girls. Although those markers would be a huge hit as well!

March 20, 2023 12:06 am

These are great! I would choose the big girl basket for my granddaughter!

March 20, 2023 5:53 am

Too sweet! Love this inspiration & a look into your baskets! :) My 3 year old daughter would flip for the toddler girl basket!! (And her 30+ week pregnant mama would love to cross this off the list – ha!!)

Oh, and please share where you got your kids baskets? I need to get my 9 month old and a basket and love how yours all match!

March 20, 2023 8:41 am

How sweet! In a family of four girls, our youngest two have more than their fair share of hand-me-downs. They would love anything in the toddler girls bundle!

March 20, 2023 8:49 am

I’d love to know, does anyone do a basket for their spouse? We’re newlyweds and I can’t decide if I should start the tradition this year or not. :)

Congratulations on your recent marriage! I do a small one for my husband :) Usually just some Reeses, beef jerky, a Mountain Dew, or some other little trinkets I find!

I always love seeing how you put together holiday gifts and such for your kids. You are such an inspiration when it comes to thoughtful gifting. My recently turned 1-year-old would love the toddler girl basket!

Love these! Would love the big kid baskets for my 9 year daughter and 6 year old son! My mom is in the hospital and these would be so much easier than trying to put them together myself :)

March 20, 2023 10:13 am

Baby girl!! So my baby can have something new that she doesn’t have to share with the big kids!

March 20, 2023 10:13 am

I love these ideas! Easter baskets are always so fun and signal the beginning of spring to me! I would choose the preschool girl bundle for my 3-year old girl. It’s right on par with her current interests…the gel crayons, the donut bath bomb, the jewelry box…it’s all perfect! Happy Easter! :)

March 20, 2023 10:55 am

I look forward to this post every year! Very sweet baskets! I bought some basket bows from the Bow Next Door this year that I’m excited to use! I would love the preschool boy bundle :)

March 20, 2023 11:04 am

I’d love the baby girl basket for my 10-month-old! The magnetic blocks are so neat.

I would choose the big girl basket for my 7 year old girl. So sweet! ????

March 20, 2023 10:08 pm

Ooohh, such cute gift ideas! Those jump ropes!! I‘d love the boy basket 7 or 9 y/o. We’ll have friends from Germany visiting for Easter and I bet they would love all of the gifts!!

March 20, 2023 10:34 pm

How fun and timely!! We have never done Easter basket gifts. I love traditions but for some reason this is just not one we’ve ever done, perhaps because it wasn’t a pivotal or important tradition in my family of origin. However, one of my daughters (8) just mentioned that she would love an Easter basket this week. And as a busy working mama, I’m not sure how to make that happen ! I’d be choosing the Big Kid girl one to kickstart a hopefully fun tradition for us (not worth it if it just stresses out the parents and districts from the true reason for Easter and amazing miracle we celebrate during this time). Thanks for your thoughtful posts- love seeing your family traditions and rhythms !

March 21, 2023 2:34 am

Should we post here and on Instagram? I guess my asking means I just did! ????

They did such a great job curating the sets. Unique but definitely things my kids would LOVE. The big kid boy basket would be a hit with my almost 7 year old.
