And what better way to celebrate than with an Easter basket filled with sweet treats, colorful eggs, and thoughtful gifts? Whether you’re putting together a basket for a child, a friend, or a loved one, there are endless possibilities for creating a unique and memorable Easter gift. So let’s dive into the Elgin Area and see what we can find!

Trinkets from Meraki Market Hub

From bunnies, to candles, all the way to spring gnomes- find the perfect little trinket for your loved one!

Treats from Bakeries/Candy Shops

Go to Around the Corner Candy for some whipped cream eggs, peeps, and other fun candy treats! Or perhaps check out the bakeries that offer custom cakes and cookies (or if you want to really give your giftee an option- get them a gift card)!

Plants from Trippots or Platt Hill Plant Nursery

Plants make great gifts for all! Choose between a low maintenance succulent or something that is a little more involved!
