13 Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas for Adults and Teens

If you’re looking for creative non-candy Easter basket ideas for adults or just trying to think outside the box of the traditional Easter basket, this post is for you. 

The sky is the limit when it comes to building an Easter basket for an adult or a teen, which can be exciting and overwhelming. That’s why I recommend picking a theme.

This list of non-candy Easter basket ideas is meant to inspire you to make a themed basket for adults, but it can also be used to help you build a basket for the teen, young adult, or college student in your life. If you’re hoping to give them a basket that will brighten their day without making them feel like a child, you’ve come to the right place.

These baskets can easily be adjusted for any budget. If you only have a little money to spend on a basket, you can head to the Dollar Store to find fun gifts for a good price. 

There are two things I try to avoid for Easter baskets, junky toys and candy. That being said, there are still plenty of items you can buy at discount stores without indulging in either one of these items.

Celebrate love, rebirth, and the beginning of spring, with a personalized Easter basket for the people on your list. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make someone feel special.
