The Best Easter Basket Ideas For AdultsVIA MERCHANT

I’m a firm believer that holidays aren’t just for kids. Of course, little ones deserve a great deal of holiday magic—but so do adults! And I’m not alone in this sentiment. Just search TikTok for phrases like “boo basket” or “brr basket” and you’ll find a whole host of adults creating meaningful care packages for their friends and significant others. 

So, when Easter rolls around on Sunday, March 31 this year, celebrate the adults in your life with a good ‘ol Easter basket. Of course, you can make your own—filled to the brim with Easter candy and Easter gifts for adults. But if you’re short on time or shopping for a long-distance loved one, consider a premade basket instead. 

We scoured the internet for themed gifts packed with delicious eats, sweet treats and even an adult beverage or two. (Don’t tell the bunny.) Our picks come from brands we trust, many of which Taste of Home editors personally tested. Now, hop to it!

FOR THE ULTIMATE EASTER BUNNY

Ultimate Easter Wine and Chocolate Tower

Mini Bundt cakes? Check. Fresh fruit? Yep. Sweets and snacks galore? Mh-mm. When we say this massive adult Easter basket has a little bit of everything, we mean it. Heck, there’s even a bottle of white wine and a cuddly plush rabbit.

I tested this basket and was blown away by the variety, quality and packaging. The Bundt cakes were very moist—if not a little too sweet—and the fruit arrived without bruises or blemishes. The stuffed rabbit was stunning, not at all like the carnival-quality toy I was expecting. Other standouts were the sourdough crackers and lemon cooler cookies. This is a great option to gift a family with adult children or an of-age college kid. After all, there’s plenty to share.

We love the elevated look of this Easter care package and the fact that it ships directly to your loved one’s door.

Sweet meets savory inside this gourmet Easter snack box laden with over 4 pounds of goodies. There’s something for everyone! Dig into cheese and crackers, sesame sticks, two types of cookies, pineapple relish, four types of Easter candy, almonds and dried fruit.

One thing’s certain: She’ll smile when this sweet “thinking of you” gift basket shows up on her doorstep. It’s laden with sweet sentiments, including a glass tea infuser, confetti cookies, tea, granola bites and a candle. Even better? Everything is tightly packed inside a darling basket that doubles as a purse.

I tested this basket and think it makes a sweet Easter surprise for mom, grandma or a long-distance BFF. While on the pricey side, every product is truly gourmet. The food finds especially go beyond basic grocery store fare. And they’re tasty, too. I ate the confetti cookies in one sitting—they’re that good!
