Our “Miscellaneous” Category

We weren’t entirely sure what category to put the rest of these gifts on our list, that’s why we created a “miscellaneous” category for all the extra gift ideas we wanted to share but didn’t have a category.

Candy! Of course we gotta add candy onto the list, it’s Easter! The time for cheap chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and M&M’s has arrived.

  • We don’t have specific links for these candies but you can normally find these at your local grocery store or retailer, but here’s a few candies we’d like in our Easter basket:
  • M&M’s Milk Chocolate or Peanut Butter- (as long as they aren’t allergic)
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Peeps Easter Marshmallows are a classic for a reason
  • Twizzlers- (Twizzlers are better than Red Vines and we will stand on the tallest hill proclaiming it)
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Gummy Bears
  • Chocolate Bunnies (which you’d normally find when you’re out and about Easter shopping)
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Ring Pops
  • Movie Tickets. Can’t go wrong with a pair of tickets to give to the grandkids on a grandparent’s day out. Go see a movie, get snacks, and watch their faces light up at the big screen,
  • Pajamas! Growing kids are always going to need a new set of pajamas and what better than to get them an Easter themed set from one of the many sold on Hanna Andersson.
  • And finally we will round out the list with one more Easter-centric gift, and this time it’s a book: Biscuit's Pet & Play Easter: A Touch & Feel Book: An Easter and Springtime Book for Kids which you can get as a Hardcover for $5.39 and as a Board book “like new” for $4.99 at thriftbooks. A fun interactive book about the loveable golden retriever puppy Biscuit on an Easter adventure.
