Do you realize that we are just 6 short days away from Easter? It’s crunch time to order Easter basket supplies (myself included)! I asked 11 of my mom friends to share their top 3 items that they are putting in their kids’ baskets this year! Here’s all the inspo we all need :)


“We English don’t usually do Easter baskets, but this year feels different. Cadbury’s chocolate eggs are always a given.”

Unicorn Surprise Soap | Croquet Set | Cadbury Chocolate Eggs

ALLIE MOOD, South Carolina:

Allie has one of the most inspiring family feeds on instagram. Her daughter Poppy is a sweet friend to Lilly, too!

The Good Egg Book | Fortune Surprise Soap | Jellycat Stuffed Watermelon


“I’m ordering a lot from local stores in my town who are delivering! I’m also ordering A Raven’s Nest by Raven Roxanne and the brand new book Ordinary Love by Teil Duncan.”

Big Bubble Wand | Pom Pom Fuzzy Bunny | Unicorn Soap


“This photo is from Mother’s Day. Remember when we could go outside?!” (fondly) Jen has the cutest kids shop and I’ve loved following her family on Instagram!

Rubix Cube | Land of Dough | Unicorn Surprise Soap

GRAY BENKO, South Carolina:

Gray is no newbie around here. She and her fam are very near & dear to us. I bet my kids spent more time on FaceTime talking to her kids this past weekend than they talked to me.

Instant Camera | Fortune Soap | Pastels Art Kit


“I always add some sort of art supply to their baskets, either giant chalk or paint! And these handmade dolls provide 10 meals per doll!”

Eco-Finger Paint | Cuddle + Kind Dolls | Ninja Surprise Soap

JACKIE ROBINSON, South Carolina:

Jackie is the creative force behind Sohp Shop’s branding and packaging! She nailed it and we couldn’t be happier!

Easter Mad Libs | Sloomoo Slimes | Unicorn & Ninja Soap

CLAIRE O’BRYAN, South Carolina:

“The kids will be so jazzed about their new surprise soap! My husband is in charge of the COVID response for our state of South Carolina so I bought these as soon as they came out, knowing we would use them religious!”

Invisible Ink Markers | Pool Toys | Unicorn Surprise Soap


“Now that Ralph is 2.5, this Easter will be the “first” that he can really comprehend. A couple of weeks ago I hid some eggs for him to practice and he was SO excited.”

Excavator Toy Truck | Ninja Surprise Soap | Balance Bike

MOLLY FIENNING, South Carolina:

Molly came into my life and instantly turned it better. She’s a loyal and fun friend and has been incredibly generous with her business and branding knowledge.

Babiators Sunglasses | Ninja Soap | Elliot & The Moonship


Bailey is the creative force behind one of my favorite linen brands, Biscuit Home. Her home aesthetic is one of my most favorites and you should follow her especially for a peek inside her homes!

Sohp Shop 3 Pack | Play-Doh Stampers | Chalk Blast Balls

I’m so grateful for each and every one of these amazing and talented ladies who took the time to share their Easter Basket picks. (I didn’t include the girls who didn’t mention Sohp Shop.) Just kidding. I love all of their ideas! I’m off to order the basket goods!! And you still need a basket too, I love this one! Have a great Monday, Everyone!

A few more of my favorite pieces include these sandals – they’re so comfortable, this adorable flared sleeveless top, and this wrap style towel robe is perfect for when you are fixing your hair and getting ready.

And these above are my top three favorites. That little white dress would work for both the grocery store or dressed up for a night out. My Yeti mugs are getting a lot of use lately. And that greenish blue floral maxi dress is one of the cutest dresses of the season!

Shop and support Tuckernuck, and don’t forget to use the code “TNUCK20”!

Hi! Today I’m sharing a really fun post dedicated to Easter baskets and all the cuteness that can go inside! I feel like Easter this year is going to need all the oomph we can give it! Here are a dozen GREAT ideas!

Sohp Shop Surprise Soap – You knew I had to include it. But seriously these make an amazing Easter basket gift!! Unicorn, ninja, or fortune!

Hyper Color T-shirts – Both Lilly and Fletcher have these shirts and they are literally one of their most worn things in their closets! Especially Lilly. They’re super soft and just plain fun. Major childhood vibes.

Kapla Blocks – We have had these for probably the last 8 years and my kids STILL use them. They’re one of the coolest kids products I’ve ever found!

Scrabble Junior – My personal favorite, and this kid friendly version makes it easier to play as a family or for the kids to do together while you’re getting some things done!

Bunny Piñata – Either tucked next to your Easter Basket or stuffed and ready for a little family party this will be a hit in my house. Lilly and Fletcher love making pinatas! Stuff it with these, aka the best candy ever.

Soccer Swingball Set – Good for indoors or outdoors (I vote out), and such a fun activity for kids stuck at home!

Unicorn Chalk – I’m all about the outdoor activities right now. This is on my list for Lilly, a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Inflatable Pool – Listen, maybe the Easter bunny feels really sorry for all the kids stuck at home and is just going bigger this year. I don’t know, but you know this is a fantastic idea.

Stuffed Poodle – I don’t know about you buy my kids have so many stuffed bunnies that we just really don’t need another one. But this stuffed Jellycat Poodle? Well she’s really cool and hilarious!

Sprinkler Splash Pad – Another fun outdoor toy for kids to play with and it’s only $30 and makes a big impact.

Iridescent Glitter Sandals – These sandals are so freaking cute. I want them for myself!

Bling Headphones – Because blinged out headphones are the new school clothes, don’t you know?! Gotta look fly on all those Zoom classes! These are cool for the boys.

Also, if you need an Easter Basket look no further than here!

Last but not least, how’s this for an adorable Easter activity?? Would be so fun for your kids to decorate and then have their own egg hunts!

Good morning! Today I’m sharing 10 lovely things under $50 that might be just the thing to perk you up this week.

This twist front sweatshirt from Amazon is one of my most favorite things to wear around the house and out and about (not that I’m doing much of that these days). It’s just $35 and comes in light grey and charcoal as well. And it’s made with the softest fleece material.

Never has there been a better time to focus on your health and well being. Ritual vitamins are the vitamins I take because they are very thoughtful about what they put in them. Bonus, they actually have a little minty taste.

I just think Baggu nylon bags are one of the coolest products out there. They have the prettiest colors and patterns, a lot of different sizes, and they’re super affordable. The new 3 – packs are only $36 and are so fun. They make great every day totes, beach bags, grocery bags…

Okay so you’ve got your Ritual vitamins so now check out these vitamin supplements by Moon Juice. These are actually not just for your hair, but they’re for your nails and skin, too!

Finding yourself suddenly in the market for home gym equipment? I personally love these bangle ankle weights, I have them in the dark blue and they’re the only ankle (or wrist) weights I’ve ever worn that don’t hurt. And isn’t that jump rope is cute!

Okay we got the home gym covered, now for the home chef… EVERYTHING is better with Red Clay hot sauce. It even dresses up boring frozen chicken fingers on a bed of iceberg. TRUST. And it’s available on Amazon, too.

One of the cutest t-shirts I’ve seen in a while is this burnout pocket tee that comes in a lot of colors and is 40% off (thanks J.Crew).

One way to get out of the house is a picnic and this paper plate picnic set is the most adorable. I love all the colors and all the scallops!

Waterproof slip on sandals are a MUST have for me in the spring and summer and these double banded sandals from Freedom Moses are THE new it shoe (as far as casual goes anyway). They’re cheap enough that you can even get them in a couple colors – I’m really drawn to the faded army green!

Last but not least, I shared these Tan-Luxe self tan drops a couple of weeks back and I just have to talk about them again. They’re one of my new most favorite things ever. They work so well and give me a little spring color! They’re super easy to use, just mix them with your every-day face serum or oil!

Have a great Wednesday, Everyone!

So I have some really big news, you guys… We launched Sohp Shop!!

So yesterday was kind of a big (and busy) day over here! I hope you don’t hold it against me that I didn’t get this post up earlier. I’m SO happy to tell you all about it now. We’ve been working on bringing Sohp Shop to life for over a year! Who’s “we”? Lilly, Fletcher, and me. Oh and Josh, too (sorry Josh). What makes this so special to me is that Sohp Shop was Lilly’s idea! She came up with the idea of hiding small toys in soap “to encourage kids to wash their hands” while making Christmas gifts back in 2018. She and Fletcher sold them at a lemonade stand in our front yard, and they were such a big hit that we got the idea to make them in a larger scale.

I won’t bore you with all it took to get the product here today (but I do want to share a lot more about our process of starting a new business from scratch in the days/weeks to come – I feel like there could be a lot to unpack and talk about here), but we are very proud of the time and effort we gave to make Sohp Shop the best that we could make it be.

We launched with three themes: Unicorn, Ninja, and Fortune. Inside each ball of soap is a surprise toy! The idea is to make hand washing feel less like a chore and a lot more fun. The more you wash, the closer you get to the surprise! We hope to expand our themes in the year ahead and offer more fun ways for kids to wash their hands and create healthy habits. And rest assured that we took care when choosing our ingredients.


There has never been a more important time to make hand washing a fun and consistent habit for kids! Come check out our new fancy schmancy Sohp Shop website! You can see more of our story on our About Us page here and check out all of our products and collections on our Shop page here!

Well, if there is one thing that we are all doing right now it’s eating at home. Whether you’re preparing home cooked meals or supporting small restaurants via delivery (this meal below is from Hamby’s here in Charleston), family meals are one of the best ways to keep spirits high and our kids feeling safe and secure


wicker salt and pepper wells, round wicker tray,

woven honeycomb picnic dome, chambray napkins (on sale),

gold flatware, blonde rattan square basket,

similar placemats, seagrass wrapped carafe and glasses

So I thought it might be nice to round up some pretty entertaining pieces (many tried and true) to make your breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner table (because let’s just all be honest we are living in our kitchen these days) feel special! Enjoy them with your family now, and go ahead and start planning for a celebratory dinner party with friends later – hopefully sooner than later!

Can you have too many of Lindroth’s raffia wrapped drinking glasses? Worth considering but I’m thinking you can’t. That blue 3-tier tray would be so cute for Easter! I’m slightly enamored with those periwinkle blue dishes – what a beautiful and unexpected color. And the picnic domes are one of my most favorite things, I keep mine out in the kitchen as decor!
