Selection of the Right Basket

Arranging the Items

Once you've picked the perfect basket, it's time to fill it up. Start by adding the larger items first, like the bathroom wicker storage baskets or the toilet paper storage baskets. Then add medium-sized items like the heart-shaped basket or Amish-crafted snack packs. Finally, add the smallest items on top, such as our delightful Amish-made peach jam.

Adding a Personal Touch

Lastly, don't forget to add a personal touch. You could include a hand-written note or a favorite family photo. You could even add some colorful Easter grass or ribbons to make it extra festive. Remember, the goal is to create an Easter basket that's not just filled with gifts, but also filled with love and thoughtfulness.

By following these steps, you're sure to create an Easter basket that's as special and unique as your college student. Happy crafting!
