A lot of the gift baskets delivered around Easter are filled with selections of fruit, coffee, trail mix, and other items that are decidedly distant from what we would consider to be standard Easter fare.

Easter is known for being a day filled with family traditions and family togetherness. An Easter gift basket from Mygiftbasketideas.com combines a sense of tradition along with the customizable touch that can ensure every recipient gets what best appeals to them, including gift baskets delivered.
It has long been thought that only chocolate will do when it comes to Easter gift baskets. However Jessica Peterson, a Manager at the site, has seen, in recent years, a trend towards sending Easter gifts that are very much missing in the traditional chocolate bunnies and chicks.
“A lot of the gift baskets delivered around Easter are filled with selections of fruit, coffee, trail mix, and other items that are decidedly distant from what we would consider to be standard Easter fare. This demonstrates to us that our customers are seeking out unique and interesting alternatives to chocolate goodies that might not be a good fit for their family members. We have even had requests for sugar-free and waistline-friendly gift basket options.”
This type of variation from what has long been considered to be the norm in terms of Easter sweet treats makes a lot of sense when the push towards healthier lifestyles is taken into consideration. Loyal customer and personal trainer D. Lawrence explains, “When my business is sending seasonal gifts to our clientele, we try to avoid sending things that could be construed as unhealthy or too much of a temptation for a client who has been working hard to get physically fit. When we get gift baskets delivered, we want to convey our sentiments while ensuring our clientele know how important they are to our company. Healthier choices in an Easter gift basket allow us to do so.”
The site reports Easter sales this year up more than 50% compared to last year. Company officials believe this is related to their new focus on non-traditional baskets and gifts. They plan to introduce further choices for next year.
