On the Hunt: Easter Basket Buys at The Wharf

Peter Cottontail here, reporting from The Wharf in Orange Beach. Let me tell you folks, I couldn’t be more hippity-hoppity happy that spring is in bloom and my favorite day of the entire year—ahem…EASTER—is just a couple short weeks away.

Not only am I lucky enough to spend the weekends here all month long, snapping photos with you darling lambs and chickadees, but I’ll be back again to spread thousands of goodie-filled eggs across Marina Lawn for the Easter Egg Hunt!

Speaking of hunting, The Wharf has become my go-to basket filling station. Everything I need to put an extra bounce in your step and a smile on that face is all under one gigantic roof. In the past, the endless search to find something unique sure made my paws sore. Not anymore!

Take a peep at my shopping checklist below for an Easter Bunny exclusive. Perhaps it’ll help you hatch some gifting ideas as well!

Plush Animals
I’m a sucker for anything fluffy! What can I say? Check out the huggable selection of cuddle buddies available at Khloe & Kate Children's Designer Boutique, Build-a-Bear, and Bungalows.

We will be springing into summer soon enough! I make sure to stock up on bathing suits for the little ones at Seaside Shoes & SWIM. They even have mermaid tails. Now that’s what I call a basket bonus!

Socks and Footwear
Who doesn’t love a fresh pair of kicks? I know I do. Well, when I can find my size. Shades and Seaside Shoes & SWIM never fail to deliver the coolest selection of flip flops, sandals, and tennis shoes for the youngins. Don’t miss the brightly colored socks at Bungalows for added flair!

A basket would not be complete without loads of sweets! I never find a shortage of sugary-goodness at The Market and Sugar Shack.

Whether it’s a bauble or bangle, sparkly pieces are always on my list of basket bling. I spend some decent cheese at Tickled Pink, Bungalows, and Ooh La La when I need to stock up on shiny accessories.

Puzzles, Games & Books
It’s always important to keep those growing minds sharp! Which is why I’m thrilled to discover a plethora of brainteasing games and books available on the shelves at The Southern Grind. Ever read Peter Rabbit? I highly recommend it.

Whew. I think I’ve covered the gift gamut. I don’t know about you, but I could sure use a carrot right about now. Gotta keep my energy up. Final stop, Burris!
