Easter basket filler ideas (that aren’t candy)

Easter is just around the corner and as parents and it’s not always easy to find the most creative gifts for our kids. Lifestyle and parenting expert, Sherri French, joined us Tuesday with some cool non-candy ideas to fill your family Easter baskets! 

Perfect gifts for teens 


amika Jumbo Perk Up Dry Shampoo – $32 

  • To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of amika’s best-selling dry shampoo, amika has launched Jumbo Perk Up Dry Shampoo in special limited-edition packaging that is 38% larger than its full-size dry shampoo (available throughout 2022).  
  • No white residue – the talc-free formula even leaves dark hair without a trace of white residue.  
  • Absorbs oil – we ditched the standard aluminum starch for natural rice starch to absorb oil, making it a miracle worker in between wash days  
  • Restores volume – brings flat hair back to life  
  • Provides a voluminous ‘oomph’ without feeling gritty.
