Easter Gifts for Others:

What do they collect? Be on the lookout for something unique to add to their collection. For tweens and teens? Think tickets to an upcoming movie, show, museum, or event. Gift cards for gas, groceries, music, etc. would be appreciated by students and other relatives. Shop your home inventory and review local sales for grocery or luxury items you could give to friends or family. Creating a basket in a re-usable container (decorated Rubbermaid storage box, for example) full of necessities and treats will surely be cherished.
