Easter is a religious holiday for many, but it’s also a joyous time to celebrate the start of spring, the season of rebirth and new beginnings. Easter traditions run the gamut from going to church to planning egg hunts and other kid-friendly activities to getting together with family to enjoy scrumptious food—including Easter candy, of course! One beloved ritual that children always look forward to: Easter baskets. But why should kids have all the fun? Get your favorite grown-up an adult Easter gift basket that’s guaranteed to surprise and delight.

While you can always opt for a premade Easter basket, we think putting together a package tailored to a specific person makes it extra special. Whether you’re doing this for a coffee lover, a makeup maven, a movie buff or anyone else, we have the perfect Easter basket stuffers and treats for every type of personality. Of course, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and Peeps go with everything, so make sure to add your recipient’s favorite sweet treats, too.

Coffee lovers’ Easter basket

These gifts for coffee lovers will give any java junkie a much-needed fix at home or on the go. Bizzy Organic Cold Brew is a 100% Arabica blend that serves up to 20 servings of their own cold brew—no fancy equipment required. The ceramic Porter Insulated Set will help them get creative with their caffeine concoctions to keep the perfect macchiato or caffé au lait warm for hours. And they’ll never be without a cup of joe with the portable AeroPress Go. It makes coffee in just one minute, and includes a mug and lid that doubles as a traveling case.

Sports fanatics’ Easter basket

Score big with any sports fan by giving them items emblazoned with their favorite team’s logo. They’ll stay warm while watching the game at home with a plush sherpa throw—and keep brewskis cold with a Fanatics team koozie. Instead of a traditional basket, pack it all in a cooler they can use to tailgate. A multipurpose folding chair doubles as a cooler, or you can opt for Budweiser’s version, which boasts built-in Bluetooth speakers.

Makeup mavens’ Easter basket

Is their favorite store Sephora or Ulta? Surprise a beauty buff with this adult Easter basket. Black-owned and founded brand Beauty Bakerie’s sponge set seamlessly blends makeup, and it comes packaged in a cheeky egg carton.

For an eye shadow palette that’s like a work of art, get Selena Gomez’s Confident Energy palette to elevate any look—and any Easter basket.

Gardeners’ Easter basket

Celebrate the arrival of spring flowers with an array of items to help any garden grow. Anthropologie’s self-watering globe slowly releases water; just set it and forget it. For a more hands-on approach, Blomus’s sculptural watering cans are stylish enough to leave out on the counter. Tend to any greenery with Expert Gardener’s trio of patterned tools, and keep hands protected with pretty printed waterproof gloves and skin-soothing soap to wash away any dirt.

Jet-setters’ Easter basket

Get the traveler in your life the latest and greatest to make any trip feel like first class. Portable chargers are a must-have accessory to stay connected, but our multipurpose picks do more than just juice up a device. The Calpak luggage tag has a hidden compartment with a removable battery, while a Zippo power bank has a built-in hand warmer that’s perfect for frigid flights. Consider adding a luggage scale or an international adapter for frequent fliers. More on-the-go essentials could include a collapsible water bottle with a built-in flashlight and a card-sized multitool.

Foodies’ Easter basket

Whether they’re a master chef or cooking novice, consider these goodies for anyone with a penchant for food.

And for a touch of sophistication, send them an olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting set. Bon appétit!

Homebodies’ Easter basket

This adult Easter basket is perfect for anyone who loves chilling at home—or really needs some downtime.

(So long, screeching kids and noisy neighbors!)

Tech lovers’ Easter basket

Gadget gurus will love an adult Easter basket filled with clever tech gifts. An affordable Apple Watch stand from Tranesca is a sleek pick to store and charge the device.

Particularly useful during a global pandemic, the ionUV Pro Wand is a handheld tool that sanitizes almost any surface, including ones on hard-to-clean devices.

Pet parents’ Easter basket

We guarantee the pet-obsessed person in your life will be paw-sitively pleased with any gift that spotlights their furry BFF. For a one-of-a-kind personalized pick, Sweater Hound will hand-knit their pet’s image on a sweater, pillow, blanket, hat and even undies. Other sites will also put their pet’s face on a pair of socks, or turn them into a custom-shaped pillow. On Etsy, you can find clever feline products, like moccasin catnip toys and shoe-shaped beds. Uncommon Goods offers up unique animal accessories, including a sentimental keepsake library and a cat scratching pad designed to look like a laptop. Trust us: This adult Easter basket is purr-fect for the right person!

Jewelry enthusiasts’ Easter basket

An adult Easter basket for bauble collectors means covetable jewels, like affordable and whimsical creations from Jackie Mack, or uniquely practical pieces, like Phearco’s sculptural earrings, designed to hold AirPods in place.

Round out this adult Easter basket with a sleep kit that encourages quality shut-eye.

Crafters’ Easter basket

If decorating eggs is their favorite part of the holiday, give them something to do after the DIY ritual is done. Help them tap into their inner artist with a paint-by-numbers kit featuring the first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman. Or they can try cross-stitching with this houseplant-themed set. Finally, add a grown-up coloring book or a scrapbook album to add all their works of art. You can also get creative with these printable Easter cards.

Movie lovers’ Easter basket

Create your own home entertainment center indoors or out with an Auking portable projector. It’s a splurge, but nearly 16,000 five-star ratings on Amazon prove it’s worth it. Popcorn is a classic choice for movie munchies, but Wabash Valley Farms’ specialty popcorn set takes the snack up a notch with retro-designed tins packed with gourmet kernels, a buttery oil and three seasonings. For a little fun, add What to Watch Decider Dice, or turn their next binge-fest into a fun competition with the Booze Clues Movie Night Drinking Game. For a more family-friendly choice, try the Blockbuster Party Game, which pays homage to the golden era of video rentals.

Candy lovers’ Easter basket

Candy has always been a classic Easter basket filler, but it shouldn’t be reserved for just kids. Scrap the traditional chocolate bunny and Peeps and go for more elevated treats when creating an adult Easter basket. For anyone with a sweet tooth, these yummy confections will hit the spot. You can’t go wrong with an Easter candy gift box or Coop’s handmade hot fudge that can (and will) be slathered on just about anything. For those with an even bigger sweet tooth, hit their favorites with a decade-themed candy box.

Star Wars fans’ Easter basket

Jedi junkies will think these Star Wars gifts are out of this world. Start with Williams Sonoma’s molds that create ice shaped like that other faithful droid, BB-8. A Darth Vader Lightsaber Immersion hand blender is a powerful force in the kitchen. And speaking of lightsabers, add a saber lamp to their office desk to complete their Mandalorian decor.

Cocktail lovers’ Easter basket

What could be better for an adult Easter basket than an assortment of boozy gifts? They’ll love the innovative Icebreaker Pop Ice Cube Tray, which fills like a water bottle, then pops out cubes. Want ice with a little more punch? Cocktail-infused ice cubes will instantly elevate any spirit. And for the sophisticated sipper, try a handblown globe decanter set with etched glasses. Cheers!

Eco-conscious Easter basket

Caring about the planet is cool, and so are these Earth-conscious offerings. Activewear brand Girlfriend Collective creates its covetable pieces from recycled water bottles; in fact, last year alone, they repurposed more than 15.7 million water bottles into clothes! And cute items with a message, such as these “please recycle” crew socks, add some visual fun. Other basket-sized gifts might include shampoo and conditioner bars (no plastic here!), reusable cutlery in a handy carrying case and a makeup-brush kit made with eco-friendly materials. Of course, if your eco-conscious recipient also happens to be a beauty buff, you can include some sustainable, natural makeup items in here, too.
