How To Pack An Easter Basket


Easter might be one of my favorite holidays of the year. The weather is changing, the pastels start coming out, and you have an excuse to surround yourself around family and candy. I have memories as a child of dressing up on Easter Sunday and heading to mass, then traveling up to Westchester to visit my aunts, uncles, and cousins. We'd have an Easter egg hunt, which usually concluded with me crying in hysterics because I didn't find the egg with the $5 bill in it, and ruining the hunt for everyone else. Ah, a much simpler time.

While I've grown out of crying in hysterics looking at an empty Easter egg not filled with money (today's equivalent is my bank account), one thing I haven't grown out of is Easter baskets. Seeing as I'm almost 25 years old, I no longer get one, but I LOVE seeing them around the stores when the season starts popping up. In fact, my family still gives me a CVS bag filled with candy on Easter because they know how much of a child I am. They think they're joking... I take it very seriously. Free candy? Thank you.


So for today's post in our ongoing IZZE partnership, I wanted to give you some inspiration on packing an Easter basket. I originally wanted to whip up a fun cocktail for tomorrows St. Patrick's Day festivities, but I have Easter on the brain. Whether it's for your best friend, your kid, your niece or nephew, EVERYONE can enjoy a nice cold IZZE drink on a warm spring day. And that's why I had to include them as a great choice for filling up your Easter baskets.
