Double Bunny Easter Basket
If you have two kids to provide gifts for this Easter, why not send them a two-in-one basket? I love this one which includes double the treats and more to share. Whatever kind of Easter basket you're looking for whether it be candy-filled, toys, spa and practically anything else you can think of - you'll find what you need at Gourmet Gift Baskets. The best part is that they'll deliver it direct to your recipient with a note from you (or the Easter bunny). $129.99; Gourmet Gift Baskets
The Little Kernel Popcorn
We're more of a snacking family than a candy family, so we're hoping the Easter bunny brings one of our favorite snacks - popcorn! Did you know that mini popcorn existed? We didn't until we discovered this great new snack product and we're in love. Popped in 100% pure olive oil, each popcorn is gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, kosher and certified whole grains.
Even better, The Little Kernel comes in delicious flavors perfect for Easter! Think Sweet & Salty, Truffle Sea Salt and Pink Himalayan Salt. $4; The Little Kernel

Date Night In Box
This is the perfect gift for your spouse or your favorite couple. This March box theme was "Pamper your love" and it smelled divine with all of the lavender items. Activities included a custom playlist to help set the mood, a signature sensual massage with handcrafted massage oil, a cleansing grains facial mask with exfoliating pad, a sugar lip scrub to get you ready to pucker up and a delicious cup of tea with sea salt or red velvet biscotti. This box like all others are designed to bring couples together - such a sweet idea! $35; Date Night in a Box

Even as an adult, I would appreciate those gourmet eggs. I love this list! And I can’t believe that Easter is just a couple of weeks away.
My daughter would like the IllumiCraft Lightup Journal. It seems like a cool gift idea that would appeal to her imagination and science side! I will have to check into getting one for her Easter basket.
Ali Rost says
What fun gift ideas! I’m already thinking that for the grandkids the popcorn and anything in bunny form with chocolate. For us after they head home? The Date Night In Box. It’s been a stressful March and a date would do us good!

OH Gourmet jelly beans!! YUM!! I love those. These are some fabulous ideas here. I like having options and non candy gifts to add to baskets too.
These are some great suggestions. I’ve always found it hard to buy Easter gifts for older kids. Once our girls became teenagers I ended up really struggling, and then giving them simple gifts. I like this idea much better. Also love the “date night” option, how fun for grown ups.
Kerri Olkjer says
Ack! I can’t believe Easter is almost here. I am feeling behind, lol. Great list, thank you for the ideas!
I never experienced Easter as a kid so I have no clue what to do! I really want to start this tradition for my kids though, so this list helps a lot. Thank you!
Roger Willis says
Easter is right around the corner! We love getting together as a family. We get excited when the younger kids find their Easter baskets, filled with goodies ranging from jelly beans and chocolate bunnies. We’ve always put a toy of some sort in our kids’ baskets, and now our grand children’s baskets. The robot would be a great idea for our 6 year old grand daughter!
I really love this – especially with its versatility. My parents still gave us Easter baskets until adulthood, so I love the idea of ideas for every age and stage. Jellybeans! Chocolate! Date night! My daughter would love the journal, by the way.
Vera Bortolotto says
I love these ideas for Easter baskets. I really try my best not to put candy in there but I think at this point they just expect it since all of their other friends get candy. Cannot avoid lol
