easter is around the corner, so i wanted to hurry and get this post up for those of you shopping! i never celebrated easter much as a kid, but now i love celebrating all holidays with arlo so i’m all for it. since we’re not like EASTER people, i don’t buy much that is easter specific, but i included a few cute things. 

first i did a little roundup for easter baskets that you can use again and again, and non plastic options for eggs for decorating and for hiding.

01. very cute set, natural egg dye kit and egg shaped chalk ($25)
