Adult Easter Baskets Idea
Most people think of Easter baskets as something you give to kids to get them sugared up before (or after) the Easter meal. But Easter is also about visiting friends and family. What better way to thank your hosts than with an adult Easter basket?
Grown-Up Easter Baskets
This is a great idea! Use a wooden bucket and fill it with things your adult hosts will love. Wine, the good chocolate, even small plants make great adult Easter basket items. Use your craft skills to make a fabric bow and display everything in the bucket. Your hosts will love the chance to feel like a kid again digging through their adult Easter baskets.
We love this idea for adults with a green thumb. Grab a planter with a nice color and fill it with tiny plants, their favorite Easter candy, and a little bling. Maybe throw in some nail polish or makeup if you know their favs. This adult Easter basket will keep on giving because once it’s empty, they can use the pot for their favorite houseplant.
Not feeling the round edges? Go with an Easter box instead! This is a great idea if you want to include fragile items like wine glasses in your adult Easter baskets. A wood box from your local craft store can be easily painted and decorated in a style your friend will like.
Birch Bark Easter Baskets
The ultimate DIY Easter basket for adults! It’s so elegant it can be reused throughout the year to display other items. And it’s surprisingly easy to make. The rustic look is perfect for any of your friends who love the woods.
