By Hope Lum –

What would Easter be without baskets overflowing with candy treats such as chocolate bunnies, marshmallow peeps and jellybeans? This Easter, let’s shake up our Easter baskets with treats that are a little more long-lasting, like a handmade item from Etsy. Etsy is a great place to find one one-of-a-kind, handmade items for any occasion, but finding that item can be a daunting task. As an Etsy storeowner and master shopper, I have done the searching for you.  Below is my list of favorite Easter treats that will please Mom & Dad, wee ones and their pediatric dentists.

EASTER BASKETS

Perfectly sized for an Easter egg hunt, each basket – round or rectangle – is hand painted with your little’s name, bunnies, polka dots, eggs and grass. These are baskets you will want to save and use next year and the next and next. Order early. This shop needs a two-week turnaround.

TOY BUNNIES
