Last year, I started putting together the idea of a grown up Easter basket partly because I don’t have kiddos, and partly because everyone loves a little indulgence in the spring, and not always in the form of sugary sweets.
Last year’s basket was a spring cheese and mimosa spread, but this year (maybe it was all of the hard outdoor work I did this weekend) I was itching for something quiet and understated and solitary, but still feminine and pretty. Some Zonin Prosecco and a Corksicle to keep it cold over the span of a relaxing afternoon eating macaroons and reading a book or catching up on magazines is just what I have in mind.
The best things to include are a mixture of practical, indulgent, and beautiful things that the recipient would not only love to receive but also put to use. Whether it’s for yourself, a parent, an adult child, or a hostess gift for the lady hosting Easter dinner, I love the idea of encouraging those you love to take a little time to themselves.
What would you include in your grown-up Easter basket? Some bubble bath? A new tin of tea? That afternoon doesn’t sound bad either!
