Easter Baskets for Grown Ups

Updated on August 23, 2011

Traditionally Easter baskets have been for children. The promise of the Easter Bunny Hopping by and dropping off a basket of your favorite goodies keeps every child up the night before. As we grow older we realize the true meaning of Easter and the Easter basket goes by the wayside. I think it is a great idea to continue the Easter Basket tradition even when you are a grown up. I used to give very a basket full of fishing lures and hooks to my significant other. Please browse this article for more ideas on Easter Gift Baskets for Grown ups. You are never too old for an Easter Gift Basket!

Easter baskets can be as extravagant as you want or as practical as you want. let's start with practical. Splurge a little bit on some things that might make the house smell pretty. Febreze makes a great flameless luminary that provide fragrance throughout the whole room. The Luminary last four hours and provides a flickering light through the decorative cover. You can buy starter relatively cheap. The Febreze Home Collections features some new clean scents to make your home smell great. If you want to complete your basket the Febreze Home Collections includes scented willow sticks, candles and a spray. This would be a nice Easter basket gift for a family.

For the Chocolate Lover

 Godiva Chocolates are for the more experienced pallet.  Definitely not for children. Godiva offers a variety of Chocolatey Easter baskets full of goodies. Some Easter Baskets feature stuffed animals.  All of the baskets contain some sort of Godiva Chocolate goodness.  You may get a Godiva Chocolate Easter Basket, or chocolate Easter Eggs in a "eggstra" special package. Some will contain chocolate foiled bunnies or chicks. There are many types of Godiva Easter Baskets to choose from!

Bath & Body Works Signature Collection All About Her Butterfly Flower Gift Basket: Includes Full Size Shower Gel, 8 Oz. Body Lotion, 3 Oz. Fragrance Mist & Mesh

Bath and Body Works is always a great gift. Take some of the fragrances from the Signature Collection. Warm Vanilla Sugar, Black Raspberry Vanilla and Cherry Blossom to name a few. these fine fragrances come in several different forms. You can purchase each scent in a body spray, a body lotion or a body butter! Mix and match your favorite shower gels with your favorite perfumes. Or if you don't feel like mix and matching them yourself then Bath and Body Works does it for you. Pick out a specially designed Easter basket with your favorites!

Skechers Women's Shape Ups Lace-Up Fashion Sneaker

Now this Easter Gift Idea comes right in time for Spring. Skecher Shape ups or the Easy Tone Reebox are a perfect way to kick off the walking season. These shoes promise to firm up your legs and derriere! I know a lot of people who have wore these shoes and they are quite pleased with the results. Many of the people I have spoken to do believe the Skecher Shape ups tone up their legs. Although a bit pricey it would make a great Eater Gift instead of the traditional Easter Basket.

Adult Easter Basket of Sweets, Lar

For the sweet tooth

 This basket is not recommended for kids as it will surely put anyone who consumes it into overdrive. This basket contains Jelly Belly, Jordan Almonds Pralines and Chocolate Bear Claws.  The basket is topped off with a couple of chocolate bunnies!

Figurines are a great Easter Basket filler. Willow Tree Figurines make a great collection of elegant figures. Giving one of these figures as a gift is like giving an emotion. Many of the figures embrace one another or evoke some other emotional sentiment. The figures never have a face but a gesture that captures your heart or maybe rekindles a memory. Willow Tree figurines are growing in popularity. They are great gifts because it is kind of like you are giving away a part of yourself. The act of giving a Willow Tree figurine makes an emotional memory in itself. These figures are hand carved and there are many to choose from!

Jim Shore Heartwood Creek Bunny/Wheelbarrow

They are Very Colorful pieces that are relatively inexpensive. If you are Looking for expensive then check out the Herend Collection. Their porcelain figures are tipped and dipped in 24 carat gold. Yes they do have rabbits as well and may other animals. One of their porcelin figures could run more than 1000 dollars! Boyds Bears also makes a precious collection of Rabbits and of course Bears.
