How to Build a Truly Epic Easter Basket

I love creating Easter basket for the kids in my life, and filling them up with toys, books and other goodies. I love making special treats for the adults at our Easter gathering, but, after creating my EPIC gift bag last year, I got to thinking: don’t kids of all ages deserve their very own Easter basket?! Follow my tips below to build your truly EPIC grown-up Easter Basket.

Since most Easter baskets have special treats and sweets, why not get a little sophisticated with your basket and include some beautiful pastel macarons? Other options would be chocolate dipped pretzels, or fancy caramel apples, coated in white chocolate. Sticking to light colors will help to bring your basket together.

You can also include a grown-up toy, which is usually something techie, or social. This Instant Camera comes in an array of pastel hues and checks off both of those boxes! How much fun would this be to receive!

You know how I love to get crafty, and a practical craft can be so useful! Make your own enchanted forest jars from items on hand, and your giftee will certainly find a use for them.

Another useful and fun addition to your gift basket would be these chic pink mason jars. They can be used for storage, but also as drinking cups. Pair them with mint paper straws and give your giftee something to toast to!

Keeping comfort in mind is a must, so why not include a great spring treat: comfy pastel pjs! You could even include a light slipper or flip flop for padding around the house in.

I hope you found these tips and tricks useful, and you stick around for more Easter fun here on SnapGinger!

Put all of your items in a neutral tote bag or basket from somewhere like Home Goods. This way the tote or basket can be reused around the house! Use some Easter Grass and add in a few plastic eggs to keep the traditional Easter Basket feel!
