So, there’s such thing as a Secret Santa (or snowflake) for Christmas gift exchanges, a Secret Cupid for Valentine's Day gift exchanges — but why isn't Secret Easter Bunny a thing? That needs to change right now! There just aren't enough holidays in a year for secret gift swaps, so I dub the Secret Easter Bunny an official Easter holiday tradition — and I’m doing so by providing you with great Easter gift ideas for friends.
Before taking all of the credit for Secret Easter Bunny, I had to do a quick Google search. Which I guess what a good thing since Secret Easter Bunny is most certainly a thing on Pinterest (thanks DIY moms). I guess its existence is a good sign — but I think it’s time to make it more of a thing within the wider population. Secret Santa just gets too much attention, without giving other holidays a chance!
So if you and the squad love your traditional secret snowflake every year, then why not make it a tradition to celebrate twice a year? Because not only does it include all of your friends, but it gives the people who don’t celebrate Easter an excuse to be a part of the festivities. These gifts below are a variety of gifts that fit well not only with the Easter holiday, but the springtime season. This list ranges from silly to serious, and completely doused with treats and floral prints galore.
