Holiday Heritage: Black-Owned Easter Basket Gift Guide

Holiday Heritage: Black-Owned Easter Basket Gift Guide

Growing up, I always remember my Easter basket filled with goodies. Once I attended church with my family on Easter morning, my brother and I would go home to open up our baskets. As a child this is what I looked forward to on Easter day and it became a tradition up until I became a teen. Instead of large colorful baskets, I began to participate more in the church program and watch as my nieces and nephew enjoyed the Easter holiday. However, the foundation of my Easter day was rooted in baskets filled with sweet treats, toys that I could play with during the spring, and teddy bears just as bright as Easter eggs.

Since times have changed since then, the children’s Easter basket has or should also alter into a way which is more suitable for the new generation. So, what better way to create your Easter basket this year than with black owned businesses and goodies for everyone to enjoy. Therefore, I have listed below a few black-owned businesses and tips to successfully create this year’s Easter basket for the little ones.

Black-Owned Easter Basket Gift DIY Tips

Including these black owned business products is just a little of what you can do, Black Southern Belle. However, creating the basket is when the creative juices should begin to flow. If you need more help on getting your design started, below are a few tips that we suggest when creating your DIY Easter Basket. 

Tip 1: Sweets Are A Must

One thing I enjoyed so much about my Easter basket was the variety of candy that was included and I know you all can agree. So it is necessary to add sweet treats into your kids, nieces, or nephew basket, because what child doesn’t love sweets? 

Tip 2: Pastel and More Pastel

Easter baskets stand out and attract kids’ attention because of their unique color. Mild pinks, baby blues, sage greens, and light purples are ways to ensure your Easter theme is thought out beginning to end. 

Tip 3: Sweetgrass Baskets

A great way to get two uses out of your DIY Easter basket is by purchasing a basket from your local or nearby Gullah sweetgrass basketmaker. These sturdy, hand-made baskets will add another sentinel value to the creation of your basket and can also serve many purposes for you, Black Southern Belle. 

We hope that these 3 tips and 4 black owned businesses should be enough to get you on your Easter basket DIY journey. Once you create your basket share your results with us by #hashtagging Black Southern Belle or messaging us your cool and innovative Easter basket creations.
