The holiday is usually all about the basket and candy — especially if you’re surprising your kids with an egg hunt. You’ll want the end result to be a cute Easter basket filled with sweets and small gifts.

If you’re swamped with decorating and planning what cookware you’re going to use for your family gathering, Billboard Shopping did the research to find cute Easter gifts and baskets for every budget and special someone in your life.

What Is the Traditional Gift for Easter?

Traditional Easter gifts usually consists of jelly beans, marshmallow candies and chocolates in an adorable basket. You can also add small gifts such as music books or classic Easter stories. Some parents like to fill plastic eggs with sweet treats within the basket, or you can keep the eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

What Do You Put in an Adult Easter Basket?

Take into account who you’re creating a basket for and fill it with their favorite sweets and treats. There are no hard rules when it comes to crafting an adult Easter basket, but the most thoughtful baskets are made with food and small gifts that appeal to the recipient’s interests and hobbies.
