Surprise Them By Creating The Best Easter Hampers Ever
When it comes to making Easter hampers for grown-ups, or teenagers who have outgrown their siblings’ scavenger hunts, you can let your imagination run riot. It’s much more fun than choosing the standard chocolate gift boxes for children. Finding little gifts to pamper, or decadent Easter food gifts adults will love, is all part of the fun challenge. The ideas are boundless! Take Easter to the next level with these heavenly hamper ideas.
Top tips to get you inspired with new Easter gift basket ideas:
1. Think autumn
With autumn in the air, many loved ones would 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.
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 doesn’t have to be a tradition just for 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.
5. Pampering products
Everyone enjoys the chance to relax, so put together an Easter basket to do just that. From candles and bath salts to calming herbal tea 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 Gifts For Adults
Once you’ve decided on the contents, it’s time to delve straight into being creative. When making a luxury Easter hamper for adults or teens, you still need a theme so you can obtain an aesthetic and stylish look. 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 adult Easter eggs and treats as the finishing touch. Or why not include some homemade goodies like hot cross buns or 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!
