Who said Easter baskets were only for the kids? If our children get to have fun on this holiday, so can we! Whether you’re making an Easter basket for a spouse, partner, friend, or co-worker, any of the ideas below will surely put a smile on their face.

Make the adult in your life feel special by curating an Easter basket just for them. Feel free to pull inspiration from our ideas or completely steal them; we don’t mind!

For the Beauty Queen

We all have a beauty queen in our life who loves to pamper themself. If someone you love can never get enough makeup, skin-care, or hair-care products, then you can’t go wrong with this themed basket! If you know nothing about beauty products, don’t worry; we’ll give you a decent list of ideas.

  • Silicon scalp massager/exfoliator
  • A new lip gloss or lipstick from their favorite brand
  • An eye or face mask
  • Rosemary scalp oil
  • Body mists and lotions

Don’t forget to add a few chocolates or candies to complete the basket.

For the Bird Watcher

Maybe you have a grandparent who you want to feel loved on this holiday. A bird watcher basket could be the ultimate gift for them! This basket is unique, so ensure the person you’re gifting this to has an affinity for birds. Here’s what you could add to this basket.

  • Bird book to identify species
  • Binoculars
  • Birdhouse
  • Birdseed
  • Anything bird-themed

You can always add trinkets that coincide with bird watching, like a shirt with different species or a blanket with their favorite bird. And, if this individual is only a beginner in this hobby, the items above make for a great starter kit.

For the Movie Lover

If you have a friend who would rather stay in on the weekends cozying up to a good movie than go out on the town, a movie Easter basket is perfect! Whether they love romance, horror, or thrillers, any item in this basket will make for the perfect movie night.

  • Gift certificate to the movie theater
  • Popcorn and candy
  • Popcorn seasoning
  • Blanket
  • Movie trivia card game

If the individual you’re making this basket for loves a particular TV show, such as Grey’s Anatomy or The Office, you could even curate an entire basket themed after it!

For the Creative Genius

Does your partner like to craft in their free time? When someone in your life is a creative genius, why not give them some new inspiration with an Easter basket full of supplies? Create a gift for the seamstress, painter, or sculptor in your life!

  • New coloring mediums (i.e., colored pencils, markers, paints, etc.)
  • Storage caddy
  • Adult coloring book
  • Sketchbook
  • Paint-by-numbers kit

This is also an excellent opportunity to add items they might have never used, such as crochet supplies or beads for jewelry making. Keep the holiday theme by topping the basket with Ribbons By Design’s wholesale Easter ribbon.

For the Travel Enthusiast

We all have a friend who never seems to be home. One week they might be on a beach in Mexico, and the next, they’re skiing down a mountain in Colorado. Traveling wouldn’t be the same without some essentials—and that’s what a travel enthusiast needs!

  • Air tag/Tile Mate
  • Wireless headphones or Bluetooth headphone adapters for airlines
  • Neck pillow
  • Travel backpack
  • Luggage tag

Instead of using a traditional basket, you might consider using the travel backpack!

For the Master Chef

For the master chef in your life, the options for this Easter basket are endless. Does this person love to grill, smoke their meats, or create their own pizzas? Take their favorite activity and turn it into the ultimate gift.

  • Variety of spices/herbs
  • Marinades
  • Reusable bee’s wax wraps
  • Tongs, spatulas, basting brushes, etc.
  • Smoking wood

Don’t be afraid to add a few quirky items that you think they might appreciate, like hot sauces or a fun apron with a quote. Your loved one will adore them!

For the Gym Bro or Gal

Calling all gym bros and gym gals—make the exercise-fanatic adult in your life feel special with an Easter basket fit for the gym. We know gym equipment can be expensive, but there are plenty of other items you can include in this basket that works in conjunction with working out. Mix and match the ideas we mention, or you can come up with your own.

  • Protein bars, cookies, and snacks
  • Protein shaker bottle
  • Duffle bag
  • Wrist and ankle weights
  • Yoga mat

Your possibilities for workout paraphernalia and equipment are endless. If your partner subscribes to a program or pays a monthly gym membership, you might also consider purchasing a gift card for these places to save them money!

For the Coffee Connoisseur

Who doesn’t love a hot cup of joe in the morning? We might not all be coffee connoisseurs, but there may be someone you know and love who can’t get enough of the caffeinated beverage. If coffee is a key part of this person’s personality, an Easter basket filled with the drink is an epic gift worth giving.

  • Variety of coffee ground flavors
  • French press
  • Coffee mug
  • Coffee shop gift card
  • Flavoring syrups

Maybe the individual in your life is a tea connoisseur instead—this basket can also work great for this! Instead of ground coffee flavors and a French press, include tea flavors, a tea diffuser, and so forth.

Take the opportunity this Easter holiday to show your love for the kids and hard-working adults in your life! As an adult, our day-to-day can become cut and dry, mundane, and overall overwhelming and exhausting, so receiving a surprise Easter basket from someone can brighten anyone’s day. Which of these gift ideas will fit your loved one? What other ideas did you come up with?
