Spring has finally sprung and Easter is right around the corner! Yippee! No more gloomy days and cold weather.
Living in Pennsylvania, winter is a hard season to go through. It lasts for such a long period of the year and it really starts to affect my mood. Once spring finally makes an arrival, I’m ready for a fresh start.
And what better way to get a fresh start than to indulge in some self-care and pampering.
Today I wanted to share with you a fun take on a traditional Easter basket. This Easter basket isn’t for kids, but instead, it’s a “grown-up” version. The best part is, everything inside the basket is all about pampering.
I have a bad habit of never really taking time for myself. I’m such a go go go person that I sometimes forget to slow down, relax, and take care of myself. I’m not sure why, but “self-care” things are never on my to-do list. And, in all honesty, they really should be.
Without taking some time to relax and care for ourselves, it’s easy to fall into total burnout mode. Unfortunately, that’s something that I struggle with way too often.
I have a type A personality, and with that comes a need to constantly be doing something productive. I never want to “waste time” (even though I totally do), so I push myself to get things done and work hard every day.
For some reason, I’ve had a hard time learning that there needs to be a balance. A balance between working hard and relaxing. A balance between getting everything done and making sure I’m actually enjoying my day. A balance between taking care of everything else and taking care of me.
Even though in my mind “me time” isn’t productive, I’m learning that I need to build it into my calendar. That’s what inspired my “grown-up” Easter basket idea.
This basket is all about pampering.

It’s filled with a few spa items like face masks (similar), shower melts (similar), and an amazing smelling candle. I also added a cute coffee mug (more here), because nothing feels better than relaxing with a warm beverage (coffee, tea, or even hot chocolate … yum).
And, I added a cute faux succulent (more here) because part of self-care is treating yourself to some cute things every so often.
I arranged everything in this pretty gold basket, that can also be used later for practical purposes like storage and organization.
To finish it off, I tied a big bow around the entire basket using this pretty navy striped ribbon.
