No matter if their bar is fully stocked—they’ll certainly make room for these booze-infused gifts. Get creative juices flowing with customizable dried fruit garnishes, including options like kiwi, dragonfruit and lotus, then serve up some fun with cocktail playing cards. Hey, it’s happy hour around the clock with a cucumber mint mojito candle! And when the day is done, whisky chocolate and tequila grapefruit sour candies are the next best thing to a liquid nightcap. Really shake things up by gifting everything in a clear ice bucket they can use at their next cocktail party.

The Best Easter Basket for the Makeup Artist

Your glam friend will blush over these beauty finds. An extra-wide spa headband keeps hair clean and out of the face during makeup application or skincare. And speaking of the latter, Eat Beautiful: Food and Recipes to Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out is the primer for mindful eating. When they’re primping on the move, they can rely on their new y2k compact mirror and makeup sponge holder. And last but not least, Sparkle Bark, a glittery chocolate treat, is as gorgeous and shimmery as their highlighter. Psst! Package these picks up in a professional-grade cosmetic organizer as a bonus present, or round out a traditional basket further with additional adult Easter gifts.

The Best Easter Basket for the Master Chef

The king or queen of the kitchen deserves these culinary gifts. A novelty dish towel sparks joy, while a gorgeous recipe journal sparks inspiration. And for days when homemade just isn’t on the table, they can turn to these ExactPacks, pre-portioned blends of seasonings for gourmet four-serving meals. This unobtrusive garlic grater dish is a pretty countertop addition or an easy stowable—perfect for kitchens big or small. And whether they’re building a grazing board or biding time while a recipe bakes, these specialty crackers are a worthy snack. Present your picks in this multi-purpose mesh basket that’s practical and attractive all at once.

The Best Easter Basket for the Gym Goer

Forget cardio! They’ll be running to get their hands on these outside-the-box fitness gifts. Their gym bag gets a whole lot fuller (and heavier!) thanks to chic wrist weights, fitness dice with suggestions for exercises and reps, and fun-flavored pre-workout powder. Then, when finally it’s time to hit the equipment, they’ll be grateful for this FitWallet, which affixes to a water bottle and has attachments for credit cards, keys and a phone. Oh, and because they deserve it: some adorable chocolate dumbbells. (If they’re not a sweet tooth, find more non-candy basket fillers.) Finally, this mesh shower caddy doubles as a gift bag and toiletry holder for the days when the locker room is on the docket.

The Best Easter Basket for the Outdoorsy One

Can’t figure out what to get the nature lover in your life? Well, thankfully, you’re out of the woods with these picks. For when the mountains are calling and they can’t go, bring the outdoors to their doorstep with a Smokey the Bear mug and City Bonfire. And for when they are able to venture off further, this fill-in national parks poster will make them feel like the accomplished explorer they are. And, of course, this pack wouldn’t be complete without trail mix and ready-to-eat s’mores. Fill this weathered-looking waxed-canvas tote with your gifts as the rugged final touch.
