Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

Easter is a hop, skip, and a jump away!

Are you the type to bake, brunch, or feast on Easter (or some variation of all three)?

Whether you’re enjoying a virtual visit with your family, or helping your kiddos with their at-home Easter egg hunt courtesy of the Easter Bunny, we “hop” it’s a special one! Here are some Easter treat and activity ideas for your family and friends to make your Holiday a fun one.

For the kiddos

Here are a few Easter activities, treats, and clothing ideas for kiddos of different ages, such as this baby-sized bunny hat (gasp!). Or, nurture your kiddo’s inner-artist with this ceramic paintable bunny (ages 8–13) to display in your garden, since it’s almost time for that! Chocolate is a great idea too, with Purdys Chocolatier and Shoppers Drug Mart being the go-tos for delicious chocolate in Bower Place.

For the parents

Sometimes adults need goodies, too! Maybe you are curbside-dropping-off some treats for your friends, or surprising your significant other with a fun little Easter basket…these items will make great additions to your Easter décor or treat selection.

Pretty MADE Things is offering fresh tulips in-store every week, plus Sunterra Market opened on March 16, and we got a behind-the-scenes look at how they prepare their braided Easter bread during our Easter “Hop”-Off. Insider’s tip: it’s delicious. With a perfect hint of lemon and topped with sliced almonds, this bread is delicious and your family will surely enjoy it this Easter.

Or, perhaps you want to do all of your baking at home (dreaming of homemade carrot cake RN). You’ll need these pastel baking utensils from Hudson’s Bay, of course, to bring in some Spring vibes to your home!

And, chocolate and Starbucks doesn’t hurt either (Is it cold brew season yet?!).

Maia is a classic Central Albertan gal who KNOWS her way around Bower Place . . . she grew up exploring it! If she’s not scouting the best of The Great Indoors, she’s probably strapping on her hiking pack to escape to the mountains or grabbing her cowboy boots (she’ll never say “no” to a rodeo). She has a love of free-spirited 70s vibes including eclectic accessories, bright colours, and fun patterns.
