Last Minute Easter Gifts

Ideas for grown up Easter gifts. . .

By the way, if you're a blog reader from outside of our local area and interested in ordering anything featured here, please scroll down to the bottom of this post for ordering instructions. Merci!

Yum. Each chocolate truffle egg in our Petit Egg Sampler is individually speckled, splattered, or swirled on the outside and filled with ganache on the inside. And the packaging...

is just as sweet. Available in Robin's Egg Blue, Spring Green, or Royal Purple.

Enjoy your Easter feast to the sounds of Stacey Kent's Breakfast on the Morning Tram. This tuneful compilation of jazz standards, French chansons, and original work is sung in Kent's honeyed, lilting soprano. A favorite at THE BLISSFUL. Makes a great gift for the music lover.

A mercury glass chalice votive with one of our Olive Tree, Patchouli, or Rosemary Sage votive candles makes a great Spring hostess gift, especially when paired with...

an Iris Matchbox.

Terracotta Owl for the hostess with the mostest.

Herb Planting Kit all dudded up for Spring. Click here to learn more and purchase.

A peek at our herb sprouts, plus a look at these really cool Zinc Gift Tags {all pre-punched and ready for ribbon or twine} and Placecards. Easy to write on with chalk or, if you're feeling more permanent, a fine-tip Sharpie.

My favorite tablecloth from our new shipment: meet the Lotus, a garden print of happy flowers in Spring-y brights, with crisscrossing pink ruffles. Feminine and cheery. 60" x 60". Also makes a great throw for over the back of a plaincovered sofa or chair. Pairs perfectly with our handpainted Quince Glasses.

100% beeswax Noir Crown Candles by Tatine. Ideal for burning at the table. A reminder of the King of Kings, our reason for celebrating Easter.

A darling small thing, these dyed pink Quail Eggs are uniquely speckled and ready to fill a bowl or nest. Also available in Blue or Green.

Our Mirrored Glass Reflecting Balls have rusty chains and a rusty iron bird hovering above {seen here, flying above our cash wrap}. The small ones, especially, make hot little hostess gifts.

Sid Dickens Memory Blocks to commemorate all of life's moments.

Wonderfully fragrant candles in soothing blue-green-cream packaging. Easy on the eyes and the nose.

Colorful patterns borrowed from William Morris adorn this collection of Gardening Tools. An irresistible gift for those with a green thumb, or for those who want to cultivate one.

These Mercury Glass Finials can go anywhere and look especially great in contrast with live, green things. To view more of our Preserved Boxwood collection, click here.

What is it about pom-poms that makes whatever they're attached to so irresistible? These kelly green poms are attached to our Shilps Table Cover. 60" x 60".

Our rectangular Chicken Wire Baskets are shallow enough to hold paper napkins, guest towels, correspondence, even small planted pots. A multipurpose hostess gift that anybody can use, or use in lieu of a basket for Easter gifts.

Paris-themed goodies to pop into baskets.

Boho-hip Cross Stretch Bracelets.

This canvas seems to make everyone smile.

I love a little Cast Iron Urn as a candle holder.

Saw these Dandelion Metal Tealight Holders {they come flat, then you punch out the design and bend each piece to stand it up} on an episode of Giada at Home on the Food Network, the one where she prepares a spread for a fashion designer friend. I love these outside, as even the gentlest breeze will stir the silver fronds and stem.
