As the countdown to Easter quickens, the Easter bunny and his helpers might be looking to finalize the goodies that will arrive on Sunday morning. While some Easter candy might be a tradition and others might prefer a non-food item or two, it can be difficult to make sense of all the options that can fill the space. Themed Easter Baskets might be the perfect solution.
Creating themed Easter baskets is not necessarily a difficult task. In reality, almost anything can become a theme. While these items are most often for kids, it seems unlikely a cocktail kit could be in the basket. Still, one idea should guide the concept. Knowing the person who is receiving that Easter basket is key.
For example, if the recipient cannot eat peanut butter, it might be best to avoid those always popular Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Or, if a person cannot get enough of the sweet, squishy PEEPS, those chicks better be front and center. Basically, a little thoughtfulness is key to the basket’s success.
Simple themed Easter baskets
Bunnies, bunnies and more bunnies
While the bunny might be hopping all around for the holiday, bunnies can fill the basket, too. Of course, the classic hollow bunny, like the Lindt Gold Bunny, is always a favorite. It does not matter if you eat the ears or the tail first. And, sometimes that hollow bunny can be filled with some liquid delights.
Reese’s has some smaller peanut butter and chocolate bunnies. The individual treats ensure that no one feels sorry for enjoying two or more.
Of course, PEEPS has plenty of bunny options in its Easter line-up. Whether people pick based on color or flavor, there are plenty of options.
Get baking beyond the holiday
Many people love a great dessert during a holiday celebration. Why not fill that Easter basket with goodies that can be enjoyed all year long. Wilton has a wide array of baking items that can inspire some sweet creativity or re-stock the baking cabinet.
From pretty pastel sprinkles to a new baking pan, there are plenty of items to discover in the Easter shop. Whether someone wants to make some bunny butt cupcakes or just wants to add some seasonal flare to the brunch cinnamon rolls, Wilton has an item to fill never need. Baking with joy has never been easier.
Pick a favorite flavor
This holiday season, food having a cross over moment. Beverage flavors are coming to the candy aisle and vice versa.
For example, the Dr Pepper fan can have a basket full of options. From all the beverage flavors, like the new strawberries and cream, to the Dr Pepper PEEPS, it is easy to bring that taste of Texas to the table.
The same can be said of PEEPS and Pepsi. Those items are having another cross over moment.
Crack open more eggs
While the higher egg costs might have people cutting back on decorating with eggs, there are plenty of other egg shaped treats that can fill the Easter basket. From the always popular Cadbury Crème eggs to Dove chocolate eggs to even those always popular Reese’s eggs, there are more than a dozen sweet egg option.
For a bigger sweet statement, do not forget See’s Candie’s Easter Eggs. Available in a variety of flavors, these candy eggs are big enough to be shared. From the pretty décor to the luscious flavors, See’s Candies eggs are always a good choice.
These themed Easter basket ideas are just a few examples that can be created. From a bounty of different jelly beans to skipping the food all together, there are plenty of ideas on the table. Wonder what the bunny will bring this year?
