Top tips to get you inspired with new Easter gift basket ideas:

With these ideas, you can give an Easter gift to everyone in the family – not just the kids!

1. Think Autumn

With Autumn in the air, many loved ones will benefit from a reminder of those last days of summer. It’s a fun idea to pack an Easter picnic hamper and head out for the day to enjoy the Autumn sun. Don't forget to bring a few Easter baskets and plan an egg hunt.

2. Hobbies and interests

Everyone has a favourite pastime. Whether they adore food and wine, sports, tech, a good book, or gardening, you can’t go wrong with an Easter basket themed around their hobbies. Sprinkle in some mini Easter chocolates just for fun!

3. Luxury pyjamas

New pyjamas at Easter aren't just a tradition just for the kids. As the weather cools, spoil your other half with snuggly new pyjamas or a plush new robe. Get one for yourself, and you can cosy up together.

4. Needs and wants

Most people need or want some small things, even if it’s just new socks! Maybe they’re craving new headphones or need some random humour in their lives. Whatever it is, get it, and fill a basket with small Easter gifts they'll love.

5. Pampering products

Everyone enjoys the chance to relax, so put together an Easter basket to do just that. From dried flowers and beauty bath bombs to calming herbal teas and escapist books, everyone will love a relaxing Easter weekend.

6. Personality traits

This is the final factor when choosing items to put in your Easter basket. What makes them tick? Would they love chocolate truffles or tickets to the movies? From sophisticated and arty to downright quirky, pick something perfect for every personality.

How to make your very own Easter gift baskets

Once you’ve decided on the contents, it’s time to delve straight into being creative. When making a luxury Easter hamper, you need a theme so you can create an aesthetic and stylish experience. A colour scheme is a great idea, and it doesn’t have to be classic Easter yellow! Make sure you have paper, packing, ribbons, and bows to complete the look.

You can use anything from a wicker basket to pots, bowls, and breakfast trays. Pack in your colourful paper, and then play around with arranging your items to achieve the perfect design. Place the tallest or largest gift first, then fill in the gaps with the smaller ones. Pack the gifts firmly with scrunched tissue paper or shredded paper to keep them in position.

Of course, you can also add some of the best Easter eggs and treats as the finishing touch. Or why not include some homemade goodies like hot cross buns or chocolate bunny biscuits? After all, Easter fun is for everyone. Finally, wrap your fabulous creation with cellophane, attach your ribbons and bows, and add a card. Voila!
