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
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.
Giant Filled Eggs
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!
Ferrero Rocher Hamper
Make an Easter hamper bursting with Ferrero Rocher products for a recipient who loves hazelnuts and chocolate. Try to find a truffle-filled bunny to include; it's a super cute addition. You can even buy chocolate eggs from this brand (or buy plastic eggs and fill them with truffles!).
Take inspiration from these photos and make a basket for everyone on your list, whether they are into sports, cooking, or just pampering themselves! For the crafter, put together a basket of new art supplies; for the gardener, include a cute pair of garden gloves and some seed packets—and so on!
This is an especially good gift for someone who is sporty. Add a pair of flip-flops that they can use in the gym, and include some gift cards for their favorite lunch places and coffee shops to keep them fueled.
Indulgent Pink Basket
This basket is filled with all sorts of indulgences, like spa items, an eye mask, and mini wine bottles! The photo shows a hot pink basket set, but you could choose any color scheme you like. Tailor the colors and the items to the recipient's personality!
"Relaxing Evening" Basket
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
