Easter is just around the corner (April 4th), and we have some great ideas for baskets/gifts that everyone, of all ages, will love. Along with egg hunts and ham, many people will give easter baskets filled with a bunch of different treats.
We are slowly getting back to normal here so some people may be having small gatherings with those who are vaccinated or even virtual hangouts, so it’s good to have gifts for everyone.
Here are the top 5 Easter Basket Ideas for all ages.
Babies and Toddlers
Most babies or toddlers won’t really understand what Easter is, but if they see everyone else getting something, they will definitely want to feel included. The basket itself can be anything but be sure to fill it with an age-appropriate toy, some of their favorite foods, and maybe a stuffed animal or two. Bath and teething toys are also a good idea. And to finish it off, add some plastic eggs of course.
Kids are the primary age for Easter baskets. They are in the height of it all, with the Easter bunny, dressing up, and hunting for eggs. Now, for children, there are many pre-made options you can get that usually have a theme, such as Marvel or Princesses. Parents can either put them together or can buy them from stores, like Target. Other options for kids are lots of chocolate, plastic eggs filled with candy, a toy or two, and some Easter themed items.
Now of course everyone is going to want chocolate and candy on Easter so of course that’s a given for your teen. But filling their basket may be a bit harder. Try books, jewelry, chap sticks, earbuds, socks, etc. You still want them to have a good Easter, but they don’t want the childish things that their younger siblings/cousins are getting.
When we talk about young adults, we are talking about those who are 18, 19, and in their 20’s. By then, most young adults don’t care that much about the whole Easter hype, but would still appreciate a gift or two. While you may not necessarily put it in a basket, bags or storage containers they can use later would come in handy. Most young adults are going to want gifts cards, money, chocolate, snacks, make-up, jewelry, accessories, and if they are of age, alcohol. Maybe even toiletries or body lotions would work.
Now like we said earlier, everyone wants chocolate on Easter, especially mom, so be sure to fill their gift with that. Maybe a mug, slippers, alcohol, soaps, gift cards, and practical gifts would all be good for adults. They still want to feel like a kid on Easter, especially if they have children and putting some thought in their ‘basket’ really shows that they are cared for.
