We had exclusive access to the Easter Bunny and he shared some of his tips for creating the perfect Easter basket, just in case he’s snowed in this year and can’t do it himself.

According to the fluffy guy, the perfect Easter basket includes something chocolate, a keepsake personalized book, something soft and squishy, a couple of fun interactive games, and, of course, something Peep.

No Easter basket is complete without a chocolate bunny—or even better, a parade of chocolate bunnies. The box is tied with a colorful spring ribbon and is available in Milk or Dark chocolate.

The company’s entire selection of candies and chocolates is completely safe for those with any tree-nut or peanut allergy and is produced and packaged in a dedicated nut-free facility. And the homemade chocolate is some of the best we’ve had. After the Easter Bunny’s, of course.

God Whispered Your Name from MarbleSpark

Though the Easter Bunny often gets top billing with little ones, it’s important to remind them what the holiday is really about. This keepsake personalized book celebrates God’s deep love for each of us, colorfully showing children how “God had a plan at the very beginning… He had you in mind, when He set the world spinning.”

Each beautiful illustration features the child’s name. They’ll love finding the letters of their name hiding in leaves of a tree, strutting on the feathers of a peacock and shining brightly in the night sky. Even the front, back and spine of this 8.5″ x 8.5″ hardcover book are personalized.
