Who says that Easter baskets are for kids? Adults love to receive gifts just as much as children do and this time of the year is great for giving Easter baskets for adults. Furthermore, candy does not have to be a part of these baskets. Thus our “healthy living” friends and family can benefit just as much from our carefully crafted gift.
Easter is not only the time we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. At the same time, we can also celebrate those special people in our lives with Easter baskets for adults.
What do you put in Easter baskets for adults?
It is easy to create a themed Easter basket for adults once you know what the person likes. For instance:
- Are they a sports fan?
- Do they like to garden?
- Is reading their thing?
- Do they like to journal?
- Are word games what they like?
- Is coffee their thing?
- Do they focus on healthy living?
Once you decide what theme would delight your friend or family member, you are ready to put together an Easter basket for the adults in your life.
Just as there are many items that could go in an Easter basket for adults, there are also many different kinds of containers that can be used. While wicker is traditional, try thinking outside the box. For instance, Hobby Lobby, Joann’s Fabrics, and Michaels have many different kinds of containers available. Even Home Depot, Lowes, and Walmart have interesting containers that will work. The sky is the limit. And if you wish to wrap the whole thing in cellophane, you can get that at craft stores.
Christian Easter basket ideas for adults
