UltimateMama and her family are heading to Tennessee and North Carolina this Easter weekend to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Dollywood so the Easter Bunny will visit The Park Vista a Doubletree by Hilton hotel in Gatlinburg, TN on Sunday morning.  Trying to meet our goal of only 2 carry-on travel suitcases for our family of four, UltimateMama warned the Easter Bunny to not overdue it!  After an hour in total at Michaels, T.J. Maxx, Modern State, and CVS, the Easter Bunny was equipped with all the necessary goodies for the two children.  Fun, attractive, practical, and sweet, UltimateMama feels the Easter Bunny hit a home run this spring. Check it out!

Michaels:  2 Floral Gift Bags, initial luggage tags, pocket tissues

T.J. Maxx:  Totes pocket umbrellas, Jelly Belly candy, Ghirardelli chocolates

Modern State:  Harmonicas

CVS: Cadbury mini-eggs

As most of you know, UltimateMama is not of fan of loading up on sweets during the holidays.  Instead, UltimateMama advises parents to opt for inexpensive and fun “gifts” for the Easter Basket.  UltimateMama suggests all Easter Bunnies out there to fill their child’s basket with items such as:

– Bubbles

– Princess crowns or wands for the girls

– Toy cars for the boys

– Card games (flash cards, Uno, etc.)

– Fun t-shirts or bathing suits

– Sandals or flip-flops

– Sunglasses

– Cute socks

– Springtime underwear

– Stickers

– Books

– Crayons or markers

– Plastic Easter eggs filled with hair accessories for or little dinosaurs

– Rings or other costume jewelry

– Yo-yos

– Baseballs or tennis balls

– Dried fruit snacks

– Tickets for a special event or sports outing

UltimateMama realizes that holidays do not have to be all about candy!  Your child will be surprised when they wake up to see a nicely stuffed basket full of non-edible treats, trust your UltimateMama.
