Boyfriend Easter Basket Alternative

I remember the joy that I had every Easter morning when there was an overflowing basket of candy and toys waiting for me. Because of this, I always want to pass on special treats and candies for Easter. Instead of spending lots on candy to fill an Easter basket for my boyfriend, I decided to make a more meaningful gift. For George’s Easter present, I created  the perfect mix of candy and love notes.

I purchased Easter colored mini Reese’s Cups and small circular labels.

On each candy, I put on a sticker with a thing I love about my boyfriend, George. They ranged from his sense of humor to his love for his family. These labels fit perfectly on the bottom of each candy.

I used a Ball Jar to hold all the candies. Before I started writing out my notes, I dropped candies in to see how many would fit. For my jar, I could get about 25.

After each candy was labeled with a thing I love, I put them all back in the jar. I cut out a circle of paper to display through the top of the jar, and made a cute little label to go along with it. Tied with a ribbon, my Easter gift is all ready to go!

This “25 Things I Love About You” jar is the perfect present for a husband or boyfriend on Easter or any other occasion. It’s especially nice for guys with a sweet tooth, like George!

    1. That is a really great idea! I’ve seen this same idea a couple different ways… written on playing cards (52 ways I love you), or in a notebook.
