We all love jelly beans, but an Easter basket full of candy isn't as exciting to an adult. Fill their baskets and eggs with these mostly calorie-free ideas, instead.
Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean that Easter has to lose all the childhood fun of donning a pastel colored dress, searching for eggs, and eating lots and lots of jelly beans. Though spring dresses and plastic eggs aren’t hard to find, you do have to search a little deeper than the drug store candy aisle for Easter basket filler ideas adult won’t immediately throw away. Looking for some Easter basket ideas for adults that go way beyond candy? Here, nine of our favorite non-chocolate Easter gifts for adults.
Easter Kitchen Towels
You can never have too many kitchen towels—especially for those who don’t have unlimited access to a washer and dryer. Not only are towels an easy way to add a festive touch to your kitchen, they help you cut down on paper towel waste, too. And, if that wasn’t enough, they’re also pretty cheap—making them a perfect Easter idea for adults. We like these from Chip and Joanna Gaines’s Target line for their subtle spring colors and minimalistic designs that will work in any kitchen.

Cheeky Storage Containers
It would not be Easter without candy. After forty long days sacrificing sweets, many love to indulge with a morning full of candy alongside a hard-boiled egg or two. However, with slower metabolisms, adults get in trouble if they don’t ration out their Easter candy to last them at least a week. Give them a gentle reminder that the candy should, in theory, last longer than a week with a storage container. The humble plastic sandwich bag gets a cheeky upgrade with this glass container—perfect for storing whatever’s left. (And if there is nothing left come Monday morning, just remember that the drug store has its candy half-off!)

Just because Easter is a spring holiday, it doesn’t mean it’s not still chilly. Keep their tootsies warm on Sunday morning while they wait for coffee with an apt pair of bunny slippers. We love these cute knitted slip-ons for their cozy take on an old classic.

Celebrate the new season with a new scent. An inexpensive, but luxurious Easter basket idea for adults is a perfume or cologne. We love this totally grown-up Easter basket-friendly perfume bar because it’s not just bunny shaped, but it also smells like our favorite spring flowers.

Rabbit Wine Opener
Though you might think of Christmas as the holiday to gift bar goods, why not use Easter to share some appropriately titled tools? Rabbit’s wine tool kit comes with the titular corkscrew, as well as all the other “–ers” he’ll need to open, serve, and preserve his favorite spring wines.

Look, we love getting pajamas for Christmas just as much as anyone else, but what’s a gal to do when it’s suddenly spring and your pj drawer is filled with flannels and wool? Use Easter as a good reason to gift cute cottons sets. Some bunny loves this embroidered set from TopShop (Hint: It’s us!)

You think we were going to dish out Easter basket ideas and not include candy? Except, when you’re searching for adults, there’s always the option to forgo the jelly beans and chocolate bunnies for something a little harder. Ewe can’t get any better than these lamb-inspired champagne sweets.
