Think About Who You Are Giving It To

If you want your Easter gift basket to be as special as possible, give some thought as to who you are going to give it to. For example, if you are going to give your mother an Easter basket and she's allergic to chocolate, or she doesn't eat chocolate because she feels she is overweight, put something that she'll enjoy in the Easter gift basket. If she likes lotions, find some great smelling lotions to fill your Easter gift basket with. The point is to personalize each Easter gift basket you give out so that the person knows you were actually thinking of them instead of just filling baskets with random things to get out of putting any thought into a pointless gift. You may not feel that way but if you give out generic Easter baskets, this is how it could be received.
