You can create a Gothic Easter Basket for the Goth you know and love for a reasonable price with a little ingenuity. Easter baskets are often gifts of eggs, jelly beans and chocolate given out by the Easter bunny. Goth’s enjoy most of these things too however Easter has been known to be full of the pastel colored variety which can be rather eye jarring to the simple Goth. Giving the basic Easter baskets a little tweak and twist can make the perfect Gothic Easter Basket for the lovable Goth that you know.
Create A Gothic Easter Basket-
Black or Red Plastic Grass
Black, Red or Purple Basket
Black, Red and Purple Dyed Easter Eggs
2 Long Black Taper Candles
2 Gothic Taper Candle Holders (dragons, fairies and vampire preferably)
1 Box of Black Cat Peeps (special order at marshmallowpeeps.com)
1 Box of Chocolate Bunny Peeps
1 Bag of Only Black Jelly Beans
10 Gum Eyeballs
1 Giant Human Heart Chocolate- 1lb that is Anatomically Correct View Here (pricey but worth it for any Goth)
1 yard of Black Lace
1 Large Black, Red or Purple Bow (go with an opposite color of the basket)
Place the yardage of lace flat on a table. Put the Gothic Easter Basket in your preferred color in the center of the yardage of lace. Begin filling up the Easter basket after layering the black or red plastic grass along the bottom. Add to the basket your gothic dyed Easter eggs, taper candles and candy. Lift edges of lace up and over the basket and gather together with a large bow. Tie the bow to hold the lace in place.
Optional Items for Gothic Easter Basket:

There are many other items you can put in a Gothic Easter Basket to show your lovable Goth just how much you care. The important thing to remember is that when creating this type of gift basket it is important to put a tweak and twist on a pretty standard theme. Goth’s enjoy items that are out of the ordinary, controversial and unique. If it seems pretty wacky, you should probably include it in the Gothic Easter Basket.
