Smart Reusable Easter Basket Container

I like to choose Easter baskets that can be reused after giving. When I was little, my mom always found the most fun, unusual containers for gifts. I must have gotten that idea from her!

If you’ve never been to your local Family Dollar, then I highly recommend going there today! I found so many fun containers for $1-$3 each, that it was hard to choose which ones I would use for my teen’s Easter baskets.

These cute square caddy containers were only $1 each and come in various colors. New caddy’s are just what my kids need in their bathroom too!

What to put in an Easter Basket for Teens

First of all, think technology! My teens fight the most about who has taken who’s phone charger, so I immediately went to the front of Family Dollar to shop their tech products.

Wireless Phone Chargers

I found some great wireless chargers and know my daughter will love this unicorn charger!

Adorable Plush Food Pillows

Next I found the cutest super soft, sweet treat food plushies for only $3! How cute are these? They have donuts, hot dogs, pizza and french fry mini plushies. I wanted to get all of them!

HOW TO MAKE A SANTA BOW!

I have an secret… I’m obsessed with anything Santa! I collect all things Santa and of course making a DIY Santa Bow has been on my list of things to do for years. We made these cute Santa bows a few years ago, and I’m just now having time to share it with you!

How to make a Santa Bow

All you need are a few different types of paper, ribbon and holiday cheer! Since we love sparkling glitter, I suggest you get glitter paper, but it’s not required. The only thing required is to HAVE FUN!

Supplies:

  • 1- 2 inch red ribbon
  • White card stock
  • Black glitter card stock
  • Gold glitter card stock
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

Directions:

  1. First, cut out your Santa bow pieces. (see sample photo below)
  2. You’ll need two rectangles of white card stock. Cut them the same width as your red ribbon.
  3. Cut Santa’s boots out of the black card stock paper to the same width as your white rectangles.
  4. Cut a square of gold glitter card stock for Santa’s belt.
  5. Then cut a smaller square of black card stock.
  6. Attach all of your pieces together with hot glue, then glue to a red bow.

We’ve made it easy to cut out your Santa Bow pieces with samples for you in the photo below…

Winter Floral Printable Tags for Beautiful Homemade Gifts

I designed some new Winter Floral Printable Tags for my Living Locurto Fun Club members and excited to share an example of how I will be using them myself! Every Christmas, my Mom would fill holiday tins with her famous Chex Mix for gifts and there was always a big glass jar filled with it in our home during the Christmas season. I was inspired by the memory of my mom’s glass jar filled with Chex Mix, to package a delicious treat in vintage glass containers and mason jars!

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

Let’s be honest for a moment, shall we?

There are years when the gift giving is straight up MAGIC. When inspiration strikes early and often and you become a whirling dervish of holiday gift-giving awesomeness.

Other years? Not so much. I don’t think anyone is to blame for this—there are years when I can’t think of a darn thing that a certain person or family on my gift list needs. (I’m looking at YOU, DAD, and your frequent trips to the home improvement store and/or golf emporium.)

Maybe you’ve got someone on your list that is experiencing a bit of financial stress. Maybe they’ve worked hard to get healthy and have told you specifically not to be knocking on their door with your famous fudge.

Sometimes it’s a result of your own life circumstance. Maybe you have experienced the life altering joy of tidying up and the thought of bestowing more clutter upon your loved ones doesn’t seem like your jam this year.

Maybe you’ve just got gift giving block.

I have a solution.

RANDOM STUFF THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY LOVE TO GET

Okay, maybe a more accurate title is:

RANDOM STUFF THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY LOVE NOT BUYING

Think about it this way…

You can spend $20 at Sephora and walk out a happy camper. (Because red lipstick makes the world go ‘round, people.) You can also spend $200 dollars at Costco and be annoyed at how few items that really amounts to. Bonus irritation points when you can’t eat any of what that $200 just bought.

So giving household items or supplies can actually be a really thoughtful way to show you care, because WHEN DID TOOTHBRUSHES GET SO EXPENSIVE?!

Here is a list of items I’ve given (or received) that turned out to be a big hit.

Here’s one more disclaimer on these…I bought these items in bulk because the key to the magic of these everyday items is that I was, in some cases, gifting a 6-12 month supply.

LINT ROLLERS
So great for pet owners, especially given the fact that lint rollers are marvelous for cleaning pet hair from furniture and auto interiors. But even non-pet owners will love all of the other uses for lint rollers (hello clean lampshades!) 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

EPSOM SALTS
Costco carries giant bags in bulk and you can get 3-4 times the amount for the same cost as at the grocery or beauty supply store. That means you can gift a 6 lb bag for about $5. (Epsom salts baths are a gift from heaven. HEAVEN.) 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

PLASTIC SILVERWARE
Our extended family is large, and we gather often for family birthdays and family camping trips, so believe me when I say that a $20 box of plastic silverware was well received!

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

PANCAKE MIX
My favorite is Kodiak Cakes. You can get a huge box at Costco for about $10. I gave these to neighbors last year with a tag that included some of my favorite mix-in recommendations (bananas, chocolate chips, pumpkin pie spice, apple sauce…) By the time I was delivering these on Christmas Eve it was a welcome break from the cookie onslaught. 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

DETERGENT
I defy you to find a person that doesn’t use, need, and get annoyed at the cost of detergent. Go with a relatively neutral scent and there’s no reason for anyone to be anything but overjoyed at the money you just saved them. 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

DOG TREATS
People that love my dog have a special place in my heart. Dog treats are also a great gift for the person that “has it all” or is hard to shop for, but has a dog. I love to do this for coworker gifts — it’s not overly sentimental or expensive, and you don’t have to worry about food allergies. 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

RAZORS
This one is for the ladies. Again…these are expensive! I would be thrilled to get a bulk package of razors or razor blades. And I don’t know any women that are super picky about these…therein lies the advantage of shaving your legs and not your face! 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

TOOTHBRUSHES
Spoiler alert! If you’re related to me, you’re getting a solid stockpile of toothbrushes. Everyone needs them, and probably needs to replenish them more than they actually do. Especially if they have a kiddo in braces. 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

BATTERIES
Everyone needs batteries, whether they have kids or not. I’m constantly swapping out my rechargable ones for my computer mouse…and not my kids have begun swiping those for their toys. Consider getting fancy and buying a pack of 9-volt batteries…because NO ONE ever has those when their fire alarm starts that annoying warning beep…at 3:00 A.M. 

10 Unexpected Holiday Gifts that People LOVE

BAND AIDS
The bulk pack is heaven-sent for parents of small (and not-so-small) kids. You can never have too many band aids. The variety pack that includes the big knee-sized ones, along with the tiny toddler pinky-toe size is the way to achieve true hero status.

Great gift ideas to get your kids outside! (electronics free zone!)

 

The Dangerous Book For Boys

The bestselling book for every boy from eight to eighty, covering essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses*, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age old question of what the big deal with girls is.

(My son has this book and loves it!)

The Dangerous Book For Boys

The Daring Book For Girls

The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn’t mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it’s female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all.

(On the list for our girl this year!)

The Daring Book For Girls

 

Outdoor Classics Game Set

This all-in-one kit introduce kids to time-tested backyard games including Kick the Can, Beanbag Toss, Capture the Flag, Three-Legged Race and much more. Kids will unplug from technology to make room for some carefree hours of fun in the sun! The outdoor adventure kit includes a metal can with shaker lid, megaphone, six adjustable waist belts, six flags in two colors, two ropes and connectors, four stakes, six bean bags in two colors and detailed game play instructions for over 15 favorite backyard games.

(A great bag of ticks to keep on hand for the next time you hear “I’m bored . . .”)

 

All Out Fun Outdoor Game Classics

Gibbon Funline Slack Line

Due to the reduced flexibility the FUNLINE can be set up very low to the ground significantly reducing the risk of usage, which makes it ideal for beginners and children. In addition to this the rubber coated print adds more grip to the line when attempting your first steps.

(We take ours camping as well as having it set up in the backyard. Even the grown ups can’t resist it!)

Gibbon Funline Slackline For Kids

Heavy Duty Backyard Tetherball Game

Now your kids can enjoy a rousing game of tetherball in your backyard with regulation equipment that’s as safe and sturdy as the school’s. They can concentrate on batting the ball – put their whole heart into it – without worrying about knocking the pole over. It makes a big difference.

(My best playground memories are playing tetherball. If you don’t have a place you’d like to permanently cement the tetherball stand you can make a simple, movable stand with concrete and an old tire!)

Heavy Duty Tetherball Set

 

HugglePod Hanging Hammock Chair

Just like the original, kids can curl up inside the cozy HugglePod Deluxe that’s as warm as a hug and soft as a snuggle. They can tuck themselves inside to have a quiet place all their own to read, take a nap, play with toys, or just enjoy a little personal time for imaginative thinking.

(This is heaven! My kids are obsessed with hammocks and secret hideouts.)

HugglePod Outdoor Hammock Seat

Deluxe Platform Swing

Equal parts floating play space and swinging fun, our deluxe platform swing is the perfect place for hanging out with a friend.

(You can attach this to a big sturdy tree or a sturdy support off a playhouse.)

Deluxe Platform Swing

 

Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball

This amazing giant soccer ball is four feet in diameter and is made from thick, puncture-resistant vinyl. A reinforced double valve system eliminates air loss for hours of entertainment and exercise.

(Great fun for little kids up to teenagers!)

Giant Inflatable Soccer Ball

Swiss Army Knife

A great bigger kid gift! 

Swiss Army Knife

Headlamp

Perfect for camping or late night backyard exploration. We use our headlamps ALL year long. Sleepovers, trick or treating, summer camp, everyone needs their own headlamp. 

headlamp

Razor Scooter

Every house needs a few Razor Scooters on the ready! Another item that works across a wide age range and approachable for all skill levels. 

Razor Scooter

 

Pogo Stick

The Flybar Foam Maverick Pogo Stick is a great entry level pogo for your little one to learn the basics. Before you know they’ll be an expert! Fully enclosed spring that’s surrounded by a foam wrapped metal frame. The soft foam material offers a really cool look while also providing protection of your child and the pogo stick it self.

(We started with an easy, padded pogo stick for beginners. Keeps kids busy but also builds some serious balance!)

Flybar Foam Pogo Stick

Jump Ropes

100% cotton rope and handles made from 100% recycled plastic.

(Great fun and great exercise!)

Green Toys Jump Rope

 

Snow Shoes

If you are lucky enough to live where the snow falls, snow shoes might be the perfect gift for your kids! A great way to get your family outside during the wintertime (even the ones who don’t ski or snowboard)!
