At what age does the Easter bunny stop bringing baskets and springtime treats? Easter baskets aren’t just for kids anymore. Grown-ups are now joining in on the fun by exchanging baskets created around a theme or favorite hobby. Whether you’re a nostalgic kid at heart or simply just looking for another reason to get a holiday gift, check out these adult Easter basket ideas.
For the fashionable trendsetter, use a stylish purse or tote (maybe one that's color-blocked or neon?) to in lieu of a basket. Give a statement necklace like the jewelry spotted at Fashion Week. Pastels are trending big this spring, so include an accessory or two in an Easter-inspired shade. For an extra treat, give a fun dress or blouse in this season’s hottest spring prints—floral and polka dot. If all else fails, throw in a gift card to their favorite store.
For the girl who is a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, a makeup bag is the perfect substitute for a traditional Easter basket. This Allegro Baroque cosmetic tote from Target ($15) has a roomy interior and side pockets that will easily hold Easter treats and beauty product goodies. Fill it with lip glosses and eye shadows in trendy spring shades like neons and nudes. Include one of this year’s must-have nail polish colors—mint green. Try Essies’s Mint Candy Apple for a fun Easter color.
A pretty pink colander from Overstock.com ($12) makes a great gift basket alternative for the food lover or chef in your family. Looking to splurge? Get a drool-worthy Le Creuset French oven in the stunning Caribbean blue (lecreuset.com, $220). Fill it with gourmet Easter candy and sweets like these Easter Cake Pops from Harry & David ($35). Include a few cooking utensils in bright spring colors like these from the Martha Stewart Collection (macys.com, $20).
The entertainer in the group will likely be hosting Easter brunch for your crew, which means this basket could also double as a hostess gift. Pick up a stainless steel party beverage server (crateandbarrel.com, $70) or an inexpensive metal tub to serve as a gift basket. Fill it with stylish entertaining gifts that could also double as Easter decor. These Easter egg candles from Pottery Barn ($7-$10) would look great on a table spread, while coordinating bunny and egg spreaders (williams-sonoma.com, $20) add a touch of whimsy. Add a few Easter-themed kitchen towels in pastel shades, which will come in handy during party cleanup.
