It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten my own Easter basket but, after shopping for some yummy edible Easter gifts this year, I might bring back that tradition. Because, wow have I found some delicious and beautiful treats. Our kids would go nuts for all of these and each one would also make an amazing hostess gift perfect for bringing to that Easter brunch you’re attending.
So go ahead and stock up on these finds to have on hand for last-minute gifts. Of course, you can always just eat them yourself if you end up not needing them.

Since my mom is usually the one to host Easter—and deal with all the work that goes into that—I’d love to give her a thank you that’s nicer than just saving the licorice jelly beans from my kids’ stash for her. I think the Quail and Robin Chocolate Eggs at Williams-Sonoma (top) are a sophisticated and beautiful way to let her know how much she’s appreciated.
This 3-D Bunny Cookie from Dylan’s Candy Bar looks so great, you can buy a few to use as the centerpiece for your Easter brunch table. Then, when the meal is over, split them up to share for dessert. Because it’s way too big, and almost too cute, to eat all by yourself.
Just because hot-chocolate season is almost over doesn’t mean that we have to give up marshmallows. These vibrant Cotton Candy Marshmallows by Malvi at Mouth will really wow my kids, even though it’s basically sugar-flavored sugar. But, hey, if you’re doing the candy thing for Easter, you might as well go all out.
Flowers are finally starting to bloom around here and I’m feeling inspired to add these Candy Flowers (pictured) and Candy Butterflies from Sugarfina to my kids’ Easter baskets. Then again, they’d make really sweet gifts for their school or church teachers as a quick, but pretty way to say thank you for all of their hard work. If you hop on over to Sugarfina, be sure to click around; they have so much great, pretty stuff.
Macarons are always at the top of my list when it comes to food gifts, and the delicious Carrot Cake Macarons from Macaron Parlour are perfect for Easter. Or, hand-select the flavors you want to include based on your favorite springtime colors for a big box of rainbow yumminess.
If a perfect Easter for you equals loads and loads of candy, then check out Olive and Cocoa’s Grande Springtime Treats Basket. These gifts arrive in a wooden crate wrapped with a satin ribbon, so it’s the perfect way to spoil an out-of-town loved one on Easter. Or maybe the kids if your Easter bunny does mail order. Ha!
