The spring season brings warm sunshine, fresh blooms and a holiday enjoyed by both young and old: Easter. For many people, celebrating this holiday is more meaningful when shared with family and friends. No matter what age your loved ones are, it’s easy to find ways to share the Easter spirit and show how much you care.

For the littlest egg-hunters (kids)

When you’re creating an Easter basket, consider adding plastic eggs stuffed with handwritten messages just for the child, such as “Some bunny loves you so much this Easter” or “You make me hoppy every day.” This is an easy yet thoughtful way to incorporate meaningful messages into your Easter gift, whether you send it in the mail or give it in person.

You can also make Easter more personal for the youngsters by giving gifts that are one of a kind. Kids love when an item has their name on it and Personal Creations’ Easter collection is sure to inspire with cute gifts that will delight the little ones in your life.

The site has a huge collection of personalized Easter baskets, including the All-In-One Easter Basket, which arrives complete with candy, chocolates and a plush Easter bunny. It’s a great way for busy parents to deliver Easter smiles for the kiddos without any hassle. All of Personal Creations’ Easter gifts include free personalization and items like adorable rag dolls and fun treat jars can also help make the ultimate Easter gift.

For the big bunnies and chicks (young adults)

Easter fun doesn’t have to end as you transition into becoming a young adult. Big kids enjoy getting something from the Easter bunny, too! Even if you’re miles apart, you can still be together at heart when you send something special for a surprise delivery.

Even the most discerning teen or 20-something will grin ear to ear when a fun gift from Shari’s Berries arrives at the front door. Handmade Easter brownie pops in cute spring designs like bunnies and chicks will melt their hearts, even if they’re far away from family this Easter. Another favorite is delectable gourmet dipped strawberries covered in Easter swizzles and sprinkles.

In addition to sending something special, a great way to stay connected with the big kids in your life is to schedule a phone or video call to wish each other a happy Easter. Talk about your favorite memories of Easter as a child and why the holiday means so much to each of you. It’s a simple way to make the holiday that much more special.

For the grown-up Easter bunnies (adults)

Will you be visiting grandma and grandpa for a big traditional Easter celebration this year? Or perhaps your loved ones live across the country and you need other ideas for making the holiday unique. A gift and a thoughtful gesture can make all the difference whether you’re together or apart.

When you want something special for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or godparents, gorgeous flowers from ProFlowers and FTD are the perfect choice. Embrace the feeling of spring with beautiful blooms in a variety of colors. Florist tip: tulips, daffodils, lilies and blooming plants such as azaleas and hyacinths are top choices for Easter.

If you’ll be together this Easter, a big brunch is a great way to celebrate this special day. For the kids, don’t forget the Easter egg hunt! Assign a color to each child and hide eggs throughout the house or yard. Then, watch them squeal with delight. For distant loved ones, video call them prior to the hunt and let them watch all the Easter egg action as it happens – it will feel like they are right there enjoying the special moment with you.
