Easter basket inspiration for kids

Are you looking for a little Easter basket inspiration? Or wondering how you’ll fill the baskets this year with our current social distancing measures? I’m excited to share some local Okanagan shops where you can get all your Easter basket goodies!

These local businesses are making it easy for you to safely shop, either with free delivery or curbside pick up options. (Check with each individual business for details). They have either temporarily closed their doors, or are home-based businesses that usually sell at markets. Please consider shopping local when you fill your Easter baskets and plan your Easter activities this year, it will go a long way in our local community!
