As a child, Sarah loved Easter. Then she realized the fun didn't have to stop just because she was an adult!

The Hunt Is On!

If you think that the Easter holiday is just for kids . . . think again! Why shouldn't this holiday be for adults as well? It is important for them to have fun, too, after all.

One of my favorite childhood memories of this spring holiday was always waking up to find a note from the Easter Bunny, complete with a list of colored eggs to find. Searching for those colored eggs filled with goodies was so fun and joyful. This tradition doesn't have to stop once you enter into adulthood!

One way to create new joyous memories is to bring out the inner child in yourself and others by having an Easter egg hunt for adults. If you want to feel that childlike joy again, an egg hunt is the perfect way to do so! Use these fun and unique egg-stuffer ideas to really have a great time.

What to Put Inside Easter Eggs for Adults

Get creative and see what other ideas come to your mind as you search for your egg stuffers. Try browsing the travel section of your grocery store for tiny treasures you can use in your hunt. The dollar store also holds many great egg stuffers for those on a budget. Thrift stores are another great budget-friendly option. Handwritten notes or Bible verses rolled up and tucked inside an egg are a delight to both give and find!

If you are the crafty type, handmade gifts work great. You'll soon notice yourself on the lookout for tiny objects wherever you go. Of course, another option is to find bigger Easter eggs! One year when I was little, the Easter Bunny hid giant golden eggs filled to capacity with candy and toys. It was a great treat that I will never forget! So, whether you go big or small, remember to have fun and enjoy yourself! Happy hunting!

20 Easter-Egg Fillers for Grown-Ups

  2. Mini alcohol shooters: Just make sure your egg hunters are at least 21!
  3. Money: Always the perfect gift for any occasion.
  4. Condoms: Because protection is important.
  5. Coupons: A free back massage or dog walking are two great coupon ideas. Just be sure you are willing to do these things when the egg finder cashes in!
  6. Movie tickets: These are great for film lovers and a nice date night for couples.

Note: You can also use this list for stocking stuffers at Christmas time!

Where to Hide Easter Eggs

There are many options as to where you can hide the eggs. I like to place them in a variety of spots so that the seeker has to look up, down, and all around! Typically I don't recommend anything would be impossible to find, nor do I suggest burying any of the eggs. Here are some suggestions for both an indoor and outdoor hunt.


  • In branches that are within reach.
  • Behind rocks and other natural elements.
  • In the mailbox.
  • Underneath or behind garden ornaments.
  • Green eggs on the grass.
  • Inside flower pots.
  • In the corner of a window.


  • Underneath pillows on chairs and coaches.
  • On windowsills.
  • Tucked in the corner of shelves.
  • Matching same color eggs with same-color objects, for example, a red egg within a bowl of red apples.
  • In corners and on the floor behind household objects.
  • Inside of indoor plants, decorative bowls, or baskets.
  • Tucked inside a shoe.
