It can be tricky to come up with creative and clever ideas each year. You always get Aunt Sue the same candy, and you can’t even remember what you gave cousin Frank last year. This Easter, shop outside the box, and get your loved ones something they’ll never forget with a personalized Easter gift. To make it easy, we’ve put together a list of personalized Easter baskets & custom Easter gift options that are sure to be a hit, no matter who you’re shopping for.

Personalized Easter Treat Pails:

Custom Name Easter Treat Pails
Another favorite for the kids is this custom name Easter treat pail, available in several colors and flavors.

The Nine Million Dollar Egg

A title like ‘The Nine Million Dollar Egg’ is sure to get some attention! We’ll get to nine million dollar egg in a bit, but by way of introduction, this post is all about Easter. Granted, Easter is still a bit of a ‘hop down the bunny trail,’ but since it is my favorite holiday, I like to start celebrating early. I’ll have other posts about this very special holiday in the coming weeks and I hope you enjoy the first installment centered around some fun and interesting Easter trivia.

What is the most popular Easter candy? Chocolate Eggs. You just can’t miss with this combination of classic candy and the most popular Easter symbol. Whether malted, solid chocolate, caramel filled, foil-wrapped, or with crisp rice, chocolate eggs are hard to beat!

How do most people eat their chocolate bunnies? Most people choose ‘ears first’ – 76% of the population agrees the ears are the best part! In reality, does it really matter – chocolate feet first or chocolate ears first: it’s all the same delicious chocolate, right? If you’re interested in chocolate bunnies, Figi’s has a few varieties available – including a five pounder! You can check them all out here.

How many jellybeans are purchased at Easter time? Would you believe…16 BILLION?! If all were lined up end to end, they would circle the globe three times. Figi’s also carries a selection of jelly beans, perfect for Easter or any time! Cold Stone Creamery® and Jelly Belly® varieties can be found here.

What English baked good is a traditional Good Friday treat, thought to ward off fires, shipwrecks, and keep rats out of the corn? Hot cross buns. I have to admit it; I never heard that one before. People believed that hot cross buns baked on Good Friday would never go moldy, and so they kept them from one Good Friday to the next.

Why are eggs an Easter symbol? Eggs have been a symbol of life and rebirth since ancient times. Ancient cultures of Egypt, Persia, Gaul, Rome, and Greece all used this symbol. This tradition made its way into Easter; a holiday that celebrates rebirth.

When did the most famous Easter celebration – Easter Egg Rolling on the White House lawn – begin?  President Andrew Johnson’s family originally rolled eggs at the White House. Over time, children in Washington D.C began participating in the activity on the Capitol grounds. However, this practice was very hard on the Capitol’s landscaping. As a result, Congress outlawed the practice in 1878. President Rutherford B. Hayes kindly opened up the White House lawn to any child who wished to roll an egg, and the tradition continues to this day.

What prompted growers in the US to start producing Easter lilies? Japan was the main supplier of Easter lilies until 1941 when our supply was cut off because of World War II. Lilly hobbyists in America decided to turn their hobby into a business; and the industry is still booming! The Easter lily is the fourth most popular potted plant. 

And last but not least…which decorated eggs are the world’s most valuable?  In the 1880s, Peter Carl Faberge was commissioned by Czar Alexander III to create decorated eggs for the Czarina Maria Feorodovna. Fifty-seven of these treasures were hand crafted, and are now worth millions each. The “Winter Egg” sold for, get this – $9,579,500 in 2002!

Personalized Peanut Butter Egg from Figi'sThe best part about starting your Easter celebration early is that you have longer to indulge in all of those awesome Easter treats! Here are a few of my favorites: Personalized Peanut Butter Eggs (if they’re your favorite too, you might like our Peanut Butter Pie or Easter Bunny Bites!)

Cold Stone Creamery Jelly Beans from Figi'sCold Stone Creamery® Ice Cream Parlor Mix Jelly Belly® Beans are delightful, so much better than traditional jellybeans. Enjoy Chocolate Devotion®, Our Strawberry Blonde®, Birthday Cake Remix™, Apple Pie A La Cold Stone®, and Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip®, all in a fun ice cream cone gift tin.

Happy Easter Petits Fours from Figi'sOf course, most of all, I love Happy Easter Petits Fours! These cute, creamy and absolutely irresistible chick petits fours join in the fun of wishing loved ones a “Happy Easter!” We also have a new Petits Fours gift for Easter; you can check out the new Gourmet Easter Petits Fours here.
