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 here—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
