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


UltimateMama is always prepared with easy to pack gifts for kids when she is traveling during the holidays.  It is important to pack lightweight, non-breakable treats and items when traveling.  Also, do not forget that chocolate melts so try be careful and opt for well packaged chocolate, jelly beans, or marshmallow candies as opposed to sticky goods.  In terms of creating the Ultimate Easter Basket for kids, UltimateMama is a fan of combining fun little gifts with a small amount of sugary sweets.  Since the family will be in the Caribbean during Easter, UltimateMama already packed the following for her 2 girls:

– 2 cleverly designed paper party bags (from TJ Maxx at $1.79 each – one with a bunny and one with a chick)

– 2 Every Bunny 4 piece beauty sets (also from TJ Maxx at $4.99 each)

– 2 pairs of Candy Girl socks with Easter themes of chicks and bunnies (also from TJ Maxx at $1.99 each)

– Peeps Flavored Marshmallow in Cotton Candy (5 chicks)

– Cadbury Mini Eggs (milk chocolate)

– Russell Stover Maple Cream Eggs

– M&M Minis

A little shopping in advance will save you the headache later of having to find Easter goods while on vacation.  Additionally, you will save money by buying exactly what you want ahead of time as opposed to having to pay hotel or resort prices!
