How to Make an Easter Basket for a Grown-up

Easter events aren't just for kids. More and more people are hosting adult egg hunts and similar activities. Take this idea further by treating the adults in your life to some thoughtfully chosen Easter basket ideas. These gifts are a great way to celebrate spring!

What Do You Put in an Adult Easter Basket?

You can fill the baskets with items like wine bottles, beer cans decorated with bunny ears, or some nice spa treats and candles. Grown-ups might appreciate gifts like soaps, books, teas, and high-quality chocolates as well. You could also fill small plastic eggs with mini liquor bottles if you want to give out favors to colleagues. Check out our idea list below for more inspiration!

Candles and Chocolates Basket

Candles and Chocolates Basket

Make this fabulous basket by choosing a candle the recipient would enjoy, then adding a chocolate bunny and some other treats. Pick a few extra items that reflect their interests, like a book they've been dying to read or a cute kitchen accessory. And why not include a bottle of bubbly for an extra treat? You can choose a basket that matches the colors of the contents, like the lovely teal basket shown in the photo above.

Who doesn't love the idea of stuffing big Easter eggs with adult party favors, like candies and mini alcohol bottles? You could hand out these eggs in lieu of a basket, or you could place one in a basket along with some other gifts. Also, these eggs would make great finds for an adult Easter egg hunt!

Recreate this idea with a bottle of wine, some chocolates, and an inspiring message item, like the pretty stone marked "Dream" in the photo. Line the basket with tissue paper, and make sure to include a nice candle that they can light and enjoy in their home.

Boyfriend Basket

This Easter basket is great for a boyfriend or husband (of course, your girlfriend or wife might also like it!). Include plenty of nibbles to snack on, like Doritos and hot sauces. Add a bottle of Gatorade for refreshment, plus a t-shirt and some gaming accessories. To keep it Easter-themed, include some little chocolate bunnies!

Bunny Beer Pack

Bunny Beer Pack

Does this really count as an Easter basket? Of course it does! To make this adorable beer pack, purchase a set of bunny ears (or make your own out of colored paper) and hot glue them onto a carton of beer. Then decorate the carton! Here are a few ideas:

  • If you're artsy, you could recreate the normal packaging but with an Easter theme, like in the photo above. Write "Happy Easter" in the same font as the original brand name.
  • Another idea would be to make the whole thing look like a bunny. Add paper eyes, a big pom-pom nose, whiskers made from pipe cleaners, and a bow on top!
Bottle Bunny Basket

Bottle Bunny Basket

Bottle Bunny Basket

Here's another idea for turning bottles of tasty treats into bunnies. Glue googly eyes onto a variety of bottles, like hot sauces, mini wines, liquor bottles, barbecue sauces, flavored oils, fancy vinegars, or marinades. Tie pipe cleaners around the caps, then bend them into bunny ears. Add a bunch of these bottle bunnies to a basket along with some candy!

Spring Chicken Basket

Spring Chicken Basket

Poke some gentle fun at the recipient's age with these message baskets. You can use a regular basket, but a colorful bucket is also fun. Add some Easter stickers, fill it with chocolate eggs, tuck in a mini wine bottle, and place a fluffy chick and a flag that says, "Happy Easter, you spring chicken!" on top. These make great grown-up favors for an Easter dinner!

Beer Carton Basket

Beer Carton Basket

Beer Carton Basket

Here's another way to transform a carton of beer into an Easter basket for an adult. Cut the top off the carton, then stuff Easter grass or colorful shredded paper all around the bottles. Add some chocolate bunnies and eggs on top, as well as other snacks like beef jerky, nuts, and chips.
