Nothing—and I mean nothing—says Easter like Native American gifts. Wait, what? That’s not true at all. Just enjoy the article.
We all loved the Easter Bunny when we were kids, right? Except we never really knew if it was an actual rabbit, or a giant-sized stuffed creature like those you see at the mall. Okay I’m a little weirded out now.
Anyway, since this is a Native publication and Easter is coming up on April 20—let’s celebrate some Easter merriment—Native Style! So here you are, 10 Native-themed Easter gifts to stuff in your basket this year.
Southwest Style Easter Eggs
Just go grab your vial of India ink, felt tipped pens, clear plastic varnish (yes varnish) and a beautiful Native basket to put them in and presto! You’re an instant Easter Indian. Enjoy! (Find instructions here.)
Chocolate Native American
Are you sick and tired of biting the ears off your chocolate Easter Bunny? ME TOO! How about instead of deafening that poor chocolate bunny (it has no ears, get it—never mind), now you get to bite off a chocolate chief’s headdress! It’s only $4 at the Dunmore Candy Kitchen.
Native Jelly Bean Mural
This gift isn’t for the lazy or last minute gift giver—and it might be hard to fit into your Easter basket. What else is there to say? It’s a chief made out of jelly beans!
First Nations Candy Tins
Well, actually it’s a partridge, but it looks kind of Easter-ish. I think it would look pretty great as part of any Easter decorum—$35 on RubyLane.com.
Jemez Pueblo Handmade Easter Basket
Okay, this handmade Jemez clay Easter basket was on ebay. No joke here—it’s awesome. Benjamin Geraldine “Laguna Flower” Toya are Jemez Pueblo. Benjamin is a member of the Acorn Clan, and Geraldine is a member of the Coyote Clan.
Native Rabbit Tattoo
We wanted to make sure to throw in a bit of Easter weirdness with a full-out Rabbit tattoo complete with a smoking peace pipe. The tattoo of this lucky recipient just screams Native American Easter.
Umm…sorry, it’s just not Easter without Peeps. Stick a feather in one of them.
Navajo Blanket Toy Rabbit
Cute overload! This little varmint is sure to cheer up the kids. Oh wait, not intended for children under 13… does that mean they’re dangerous? Purchase with caution.
Wow! Can you imagine? Okay, okay, this is a display, but we can dream, can’t we? There’s a big spender out there who might just buy this giant bad boy for 24/7 headdress lollipops! Talk about a REAL NATIVE AMERICAN EASTER!
