I love beauty products – but I also love the environment. I am big on natural products so I am picky when it comes to the beauty products that I use. Good Earth Beauty is a unique beauty shop that carries only natural and organic beauty products that are NOT tested on animals. All products are chosen and personally tested by their staff. Product lines include Cosmetics, Bath & Body, Hair Care, items for Babies, Pets, and more. I am a huge fan of theirs because of their core values as a company. This Easter, give the gift of natural beauty products, but stick with the chocolate theme that everyone loves about Easter! These would be a great gift for a tween, young teen, or even your mom or best friend!

These LPS City Rides are the perfect size for Easter Baskets! From Hasbro Toys.
Not all vanillas are created equal, and Ciao Bella believe that theirs is the best tasting version out there. Sourced from the island of Madagascar, their organic vanilla extract creates a gelato that is so rich, so thick, and so savory it needs nothing extra.

This stuff is delicious and would make a great Easter gift for just about anyone!

Take to the country! The wooden railway brings you over the rocks to a hidden countryside pasture. When your horse is up for a field trip away from its beautiful shed, give it a shower and lead it to the train. The wagon has a perfect design for horse transport, complete with a foldout ramp. Smooth riding, indeed. Imagine your child seeing this set up on the table by their Easter Baskets or waiting for them in the living room with eggs hiding in it!
With this remote controlled travel train the child is the train driver. The poseable figure fits inside the passenger wagon. The unique controller has easy to use reverse and stop functions as well as two different forward speeds. Press the buttons for light and sound effects. A & B frequencies make it possible for 2 RC trains to run on the tracks at the same time. My girls had a blast playing with this, and I know any child would be thrilled to find this waiting for them on Easter morning!
Look out! There’s a HEXBUG in the yard and it’s coming after you! Players roll the die and move their bugs across the yard, until the HEXBUG emerges from the loop and tries to bump them off. If your bugs are safe, then continue moving across the yard. Get bumped and you’ll have to start from the beginning again! The first player to get all of their bugs safely across wins! This is a great family game! My 3 and 4 year old love it! It is a blast for all ages – and a must have for any family that likes to get together and play games.
Use your smart phone or tablet to explore the amazing world of microscopics with Smartscope! Magnify your own finds, including water, sand, feathers, leaves, insects, and more, or study the objects on the included poster and follow along in the manual for fun facts about each. With a removable light source and sliding object tray with two levels of magnification, you’ll be able to scope out all kinds of objects in minute detail. My 4 year old is really in to bugs, nature, and science so this has been a huge hit with her. We had fun putting it together (it was very easy) and finding things to look at.

Add colorful LEGO fun to your Easter celebrations with this buildable Easter Chick, featuring a rotating head and body, plus movable wings and toes. My daughters and I had so much fun building this! We are a LEGO family and so they were thrilled to see this arrive in the mail. We had to build it immediately – and I was shocked that my 4 year old could do it almost entirely by herself! She definitely takes after mommy because she wanted to display it and not play with it. Although, my 3 year old convinced her it would be fun to run around the house with it yelling “quack!” What a great alternative to candy in your little ones’ Easter baskets!
At Zazzle, The Make Engine, they believe that dreams should be indulged, ideas explored, and inner creators set free. Their mission is to give anyone, anywhere the power to make anything imaginable.

There are many options and many other items that would be great for hosting a get together with friends and/or family.
