Treat Yo Self: Last Minute Easter Basket

Happy Good Friday!  I hope many of you are able to start your holiday weekend early with a day off today!  We are unsure of our plans, but there will definitely be a few Easter goodies involved.  I gave up sweets/dessert for Lent, so I am just dreaming of that Reese's egg on Easter morning!  Today, I've rounded up a items for your last-minute Easter basket because, well...
One of my favorite small businesses, Megan from Home Sweet College Home shared a great blog post with the five essentials for any Easter basket: something useful, something nostalgic, something sentimental, something tasty, and something decorative.  I definitely used this as my inspiration and have a little of all five below.  The best thing about all of these items are that they are from Target, and I am obsessed with Target's "Order Pickup" option.  They'll do the shopping in-store for you, and you just pick everything up at customer service! 
usefulWhenever I give an Easter basket, I love to put it in something the person can use again.  No exception for my own basket.  I would love one of these fruit baskets for my kitchen, but this laundry basket and this storage cube are really cute, too.  If you don't need a basket, how about some adorable dish towels from Hearth & Home?!

nostalgicOkay, so I know there is also a "tasty" category, but I also had to start with candy here.  I can still remember Reese's Eggs sitting in my nona and papa's candy dish when I was younger, and Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies bring me back to thinking I was smart buying half price candy after Easter to bring to all of my golf teammates.  Last but not least, this is the perfect category for a little egg decorating, too.

sentimental - I struggled with this category a little, but who doesn't love seeing their photos.  This photo frame with the wooden clips is great!  Or, if you're looking for something to make you smile and keep you moving, I love this motivational print!

tasty - Alright, now this is the category y'all were waiting for.  Oh, the Easter candy!  Giving up sweets for Lent wasn't honestly as bad as I imagined it would be, but oh boy, I can't wait for Sunday.  Ever since I wrote this post with M&Ms, I have had a bags of M&Ms caramel sitting in my dining room, and it has taken so. much. self. control.  Other favorites of mine are robin's eggs, Sour Patch bunnies, Dove eggs, York eggs, and Peeps.  Even if you aren't a Peeps fan, they make great s'mores!  Also, if you buy one of everything, you can make a delicious Easter candy milkshake like I did last year!

decorative - Spring decor is some of my favorite (maybe it's my love affair with pink - haha!).  I love this cross, these nesting eggs, this bunny pillow, this egg wreath, and this flower garland, which would be perfect all spring long.
