Just because we are all stuck at home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect a visit from the Easter bunny.
It’s time to get out that glue gun and grab a few supplies from around the house to create the ultimate Panier de Paques (because Easter Basket sounds so much more luxe in French right?). The perfect Farmhouse Chic Easter Gift DIY.
The kids can even help with this one and make little gifts for each other or for your neighbors.
I love things with a modern farmhouse feel, they deliver a sense of laid back luxe. Farmhouse Style is unique and approachable plus it’s totally on-trend. Classic farmhouse style evokes feelings of warmth and comfort. Traditional without being fussy, think crafty but make it fashion. It’s all about using what’s around you and elevating it to create something chic.
My gifts were crafted for adults, but you could tailor them toward kids by filling them with candy filled eggs, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, chocolate Easter bunnies or homemade treats.
The items in your gift don’t have to be crazy expensive- in fact they shouldn’t be. They should evoke a sense of low key sophistication and style without breaking the bank. Every great Easter basket should have three key ingredients: something luxe but whimsical, a fancy self-care treat and a dash of tradition.
When I was little the Easter bunny always put bubbles in my basket. They always remind me of Easter so when I discovered the grown-up version created by master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian I lost my mind! Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Perfumed Bubbles are one of my go-to whimsy packed gifts and totally PERFECT for Easter. Part perfume, part playground they are fun, unexpected and oh so chic. You can purchase them individually or buy a box of four and then split them up. (available at Neiman Marcus)
Patchology makes these cute little Mood Patch Eye Gel Kits which are infused with tea and essential oils to brighten your skin and your outlook. Not only do these feel wonderful they are also little works of herbiary art. Each patch has a sprinkling of confetti like leaves pressed into them. (available at Neiman Marcus)
Easter baskets originated with ancient farming rituals where farmers would bring seedlings in baskets to temples to be blessed with hopes of having a bountiful harvest. Whether you’re religious or not, you can honor this springtime tradition of rebirth and new beginnings by including seeds in your Easter gift or even a plantable card.
Modern Sprout makes these cutest little Seed Poppers which are inspired by traditional English crackers. Each popper includes 4-6 clay balls featuring organic, non-GMO seeds, confetti, and instructions!

STEP ONE: While the bag is still closed, cut “bunny ears” by cutting a deep V shape at the top of the paper bag.
STEP TWO: Open the bag and hot glue the pom pom or cotton ball towards the bottom of the bag to make a bunny tail.. Press it in place until it cools.
STEP THREE: Add a small amount of Shredded Paper Easter Grass or a bit of Tissue Paper.
STEP FOUR: Fill your bag with the Easter goodies.
STEP FIVE: Now, tie your bag at the base of the ears with twine and add your gift tag. Arrange the ears so that they look like bunny ears.
