What Is the Traditional Gift for Easter?

Traditional Easter gifts usually consists of jelly beans, marshmallow candies and chocolates in an adorable basket. You can also add small gifts such as music books or classic Easter stories. Some parents like to fill plastic eggs with sweet treats within the basket, or you can keep the eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

What Can You Give for Easter Instead of Candy?

If your loved one doesn’t have a sweet tooth, you can fill their Easter basket with gifts like books, toys and puzzles. The best Easter gifts will be ones picked out based on their likes and passions. For music lovers, consider a musician memoir by their favorite artist. Or, for the self-care enthusiast you can surprise your special someone with Easter-themed bath bombs.

What Do You Put in an Adult Easter Basket?

Take into account who you’re creating a basket for and fill it with their favorite sweets and treats. There are no hard rules when it comes to crafting an adult Easter basket, but the most thoughtful baskets are made with food and small gifts that appeal to the recipient’s interests and hobbies. If they’re a fashion lover, then consider incorporating a piece of jewelry, such as a watch. If they love sports, you could add in something such as gear for pickleball.
