How to Create a Modern Easter Basket for Adults // Gift Guide

FILED IN: Gift Guides, Holiday & Seasonal

Posted By: Jamie

Am I the only one who can barely believe it's almost Easter? I mean, weren't we JUST ringing in 2017? Anyway, with all the colorful Easter things filling the shelves at all the stores, it got me thinking about Easter baskets and how they aren't just for kids. They should be for adults too, right? Today, I'm sharing my ideas for curating an adult-only Easter basket. Hope you enjoy!

1 Copper Basket

The vessel always sets the tone for any gifts and in this case, I've chosen a copper basket from CB2 as a modern base for the overall gift. I've never seen an Easter basket created in anything even close to this so this made me want to try it even more!

2 Tulips

Ahhhh tulips! Nothing says spring like tulips so they were an absolute must when curating this gift. I chose white for a modern, neutral backdrop. Wrapped with kraft paper and tied with ribbon, these add a fresh element to the basket that any adult recipient would be thrilled to receive. Via Telebouquet.

3 Decorative Eggs

An Easter basket isn't complete without eggs of some kind. Since most grown-ups tend to try and stay away from a ton of chocolate (keyword: try), I selected pastel eggs intended for decorative purposes only. But this doesn't make them boring! You can display them in a beautiful dish on your coffee table or even as a centerpiece at the kitchen table. The possibilities are endless!

4 Ribbon

I chose green and white striped ribbon as a finishing touch for the gift. It pulls together many of the green elements throughout this gift and is the perfect springtime color.

5 Dish Towels

I am over-the-moon smitten with these botanical dish towels. These can be rolled up and tied with ribbon inside the gift basket. Or, open them up a bit and drape the material over the outside of the basket for additional style.

6 Gift Tag

I selected a kraft gift tag with grommet along with "Happy Easter" in script font for a natural, yet elegant, look. You could have these printed, stamped or even hand-lettered!

7 Bonsai Tree

I'm a huge fan of gifts that involve doing an activity of some sort. This bonsai tree growing kit is a prime example of this! Not to mention, I love the galvanized tin the kit comes in as well as the clippers that come tied at the top. This is a gift in itself!

8 Frutta Fiore Candy

Leave it to Sugarfina to come up with these floral fondant candies that are sure to steal the show. The light pastel candies are gorgeous (and imported from Italy!) but also delicious at the same time.

I hope you've enjoyed this gift guide! You still have plenty of time to pull something together in time for Easter and when you do, please share with us! We'd love to hear what you've come up with either in the comments or via our contact page. We always love hearing from you!
