A Gift Basket of 17 Easter Ideas

My little girl feet walked proudly in their new Mary Janes through the wildflowers and green grass all the way to the top of the hill for Easter Sunrise Service.

Everything felt fresh and I wondered if Heaven looked as pretty as the fluffy clouds nestled above us.

I don’t remember what the pastor said, but my spirit knew that this was a joyful, holy day.

Such Easter memories mingle with those of smells and laughter from family bar-b-ques and Easter egg hunts at Grandma’s.

These gatherings helped form my spiritual journey.

They’re interwoven into my soul and into my legacy of faith.

And I want to create such memories for my family and friends.

These experiences don’t have to be fancy. Just filled with love and sprinkled with your faith message.

All you have to do is swirl your own Easter story into a few memory-making moments.

To make it easy, I’ve created a gift basket of 17 Easter ideas to help you get started. Choose the ones that work best for you and your tribe.

    One of my favorite Easters from years ago was when you and Tom invited us to the ranch for Easter Sunday. My parents were out of town with my ill grandfather. You were so hospitable and made us feel at home. We loved the day full of so much fun. Thank you for that day!!!!

      It was a lovely day, Willa. And someday we’ll get to spend all the Easters to come together.

      Have a lovely Easter with your growing family. Love you guys so much. 🙂

    Oh what a wonderful resource to use in planning our family’s Easter celebration! I am going to pin this, and look into trying some new ideas this year. I need better, more intentional plans. Thank you for this, Susan!

      Sometimes we need to be intentional or celebrations end up being thrown together and we miss such precious opportunities, don’t we? Glad you found it helpful, Chris. 🙂
