In a little less than two weeks, MJD and I are going to be hosting our first holiday by having our families over for Easter Brunch. We are super excited for it and of course, I’ve been planning out some fun ideas for my favorite meal, brunch.
As I was thinking about Easter (beyond the actual reason for the holiday, of course), I thought about Easter traditions we had when growing up. Easter baskets filled with goodies was something we looked forward to each Easter morning- you know my sweet tooth loves all that candy! While most people might think an Easter basket is a bit childish, you are reading the blog of a girl who still insists on believing in Santa ( because duh, if you don’t believe you don’t get gifts!). And who says Easter baskets have to just be for kids? I thought it would be fun to take a twist on the traditional Easter basket as a little surprise for our out-of-town guests.
Here’s what I would put in an Adult Easter basket:
- Fashion magazine or favorite magazine
- Specialty candy like Sugarfina Champagne bubbles or Rose gummies
- EOS Lip Balm
- Mini bottle of champagne (with matching straw for easy drinking 😉 )
- Sheet masks (like these ones from Sephora) or other fun beauty product
- Favorite traditional Easter candy- call us gross, but my sister and I LOVE Peeps!
While the basket I put together is obviously designed more for a girl given the pink theme, it would be really easy to sub the items for a more masculine basket for the guys! I’m thinking a sports magazine, mini bottle of whisky or bourbon and the super cute bourbon themed Sugarfina candies. An adult Easter basket is the perfect way to celebrate the kid in each and every one of us!
Do you have any fun Easter traditions in your family?
