Themed Easter Basket Ideas
You’re never too old for an Easter basket! Forget those pre-made baskets at the store though, and put together a custom basket just for her.
Chocolate Lover’s Basket
Imagine the joy on your girlfriend’s face when she discovers a basket overflowing with chocolate delights and sugary treats. Start with a selection of gourmet chocolate eggs, each with a unique filling – think hazelnut cream, raspberry ganache, or even a touch of sea salt caramel.
Add a luxurious hot chocolate mix, or maybe some hot chocolate pops like these, perfect for cozy evenings.
To top it off, consider including a chocolate-scented candle for a truly immersive chocolate experience.

Spa and Relaxation Basket
Everyone loves a bit of pampering, right? I know I do! Create a serene retreat at home with a spa-themed basket.
Include scented candles in calming scents like lavender, jasmine, or sandalwood to set a relaxing mood. Add an assortment of bath bombs, infused with essential oils and soothing herbs, turning her bath into a spa-like experience.
Luxury face masks, perhaps with ingredients like aloe vera, green tea, or hyaluronic acid, can offer a rejuvenating facial treatment. Consider adding a plush bathrobe, a pair of soft slippers, and a body scrub to complete the home spa experience.
A small collection of herbal teas or a calming music playlist can be the cherry on top for ultimate relaxation.
For the book-loving girlfriend, curate a basket filled with literary treasures. Or in place of a basket, fill this Kate Spade tote bag with a handful of bookworm basics and accessories.
Alongside a couple of bestsellers or classic novels, include a beautifully illustrated edition of her favorite book or a collection of poetry.
A package of Novel Teas will keep her warm as her thirst for reading intensifies.
A gift card from a local bookstore will allow her to choose her next read. Add some unique bookmarks – perhaps quirky fun ones, an Easter bookmark, or some with literary quotes.
Fitness Enthusiast Basket
For the girlfriend who cherishes her workout routine, assemble a basket (or new gym bag) geared towards fitness and wellness.
Include a variety of healthy snacks – protein bars, trail mix, and dried fruit are great choices. A gift card for a fitness app subscription will offer her a range of workouts to try at home.
Consider adding a reusable water bottle with a motivational quote, a cool towel for post-workout refreshment, and a set of wireless earbuds for an uninterrupted fitness session. A foam roller or a massage ball for muscle recovery could be a thoughtful addition.
For the girlfriend with a green thumb or just a passion for gardening, create a basket that celebrates her love for growing things.
Include a few decorative plant pots or a DIY flower pot painting kit for a personal touch.
For a whimsical touch, add some garden decorations like a cute wind chime or a fairy garden set. A hat and some sunscreen would also be thoughtful additions to protect her while she enjoys her time outdoors.

Never underestimate the power of a handwritten letter or a poem. It’s personal, heartfelt, and absolutely free!

Small Stuffers for Plastic Eggs
Mini Beauty Products
Stuff those plastic Easter eggs with mini beauty products like lip balms, hand creams, or sample-size perfumes.
You could also include tiny makeup items like eyeshadows, pastel nail polish, or lip glosses. It’s a fun and practical surprise in each egg! Plus it’s a cute way to give her some pampering goodies.

Jewelry and Accessories
Small jewelry pieces like earrings, pendants, or charm bracelets can be tucked inside the eggs. This Swarovski necklace is filled with beautiful spring colors. Consider her style and add pieces she would love.
Hair accessories like cute clips or scrunchies can also be a delightful find. It’s like a treasure hunt with shiny surprises!
Fill some eggs with mini chocolates or homemade cookies. Opt for gourmet mini chocolates, truffles, or homemade sweets. You could also include small packets of her favorite tea or coffee for a sweet and cozy treat. It’s a sweet little surprise in each egg!
Fun and Romantic Coupons
Create coupons for experiences or favors, like a back massage, a day without chores, or a date night where she picks the restaurant. These coupons can be fun, romantic, and promise future enjoyable moments together.
They can be super simple like “One free hug” or “Movie night of your choice.” It’s playful and promises more good times ahead – which she will obviously love to have with you!
Personal Notes and Quotes
Write short love notes, inspirational quotes, or reasons why you love her on small pieces of paper. Just imagine a dozen plastic eggs in bright colors, filled with 12 different reasons you love her or 12 messages to brighten her day. Each note is a little message of love and positivity — and a gift that she can keep forever.
