15 Last-Minute Easter Gift Ideas

15 Last-Minute Easter Gift Ideas

Yet another year of eggs and easter baskets for all of the kiddos, but what about for the adults? I’ve got some amazing ideas for home and lifestyle goodies for all of the wonderful ladies in your life!

1. Sugar Cookies.

I love the sugar cookies from My Little Cupcake in Burlington, Vermont. They have the BEST sugar cookies made from the finest ingredients such as: King Arthur Flour, Cabot butter, and Callebaut chocolate. Their cookies are super adorable and would make a vibrant addition to any Easter basket.

If you love to bake (which I do not) you could absolutely make your own sugar cookies from scratch and decorate them however you would like!

2. Wine.

This Alicante Bouschet (2013) from Amphora Winery is a dry and fruit-forward red wine. Alicante Bouschet dates back almost 150 years when it was most commonly used to enhance “bathtub booze” during Prohibition. Alicante Bouschet has notes of black cherry, blackberry, plum, black pepper, and sweet tobacco. If you’re having filet mignon or a nice cut of beef for Easter dinner then this wine will make a welcome accompaniment! Trust me.

3. Candles.

Lunaroma on Pine Street in Burlington, Vermont makes candles with pure therapeutic grade essential oils, non-GMO palm or soy wax, and wicks made from cotton or hemp. Many candles on the market omit toxic chemicals into the air which, overtime, can lead to cancer. (1) These candles are mindfully crafted without harmful toxins and other known health hazards.

4. Chocolates.

Is any Easter basket complete without chocolate? Absolutely not!

Lake Champlain Chocolates offers gourmet chocolates that make the most delectable Easter treats! Or hop onto the latest CBD infused products bandwagon with delicious CBD chocolate bars from Burroughs Chocolate. When in doubt or on a budget—you can usually find Lindt Chocolate truffles for half price at Home Goods! 😉

Growing up my grandmother would visit her family in England right before Easter. She would bring back many chocolate treats from the Cadbury factory. She knew my favorites were: milk chocolate fingers, creme eggs, and the mini eggs were perhaps my favorite of them all. 🍫✨

5. Seeds.

Spring has sprung! It’s time to bring new life to your home or outdoor garden with the addition of new plants and herbs. I know that I’d love to receive basil, oregano, chives, thyme, and rosemary seeds. This is a highly practical gift which is what I personally love to receive.

6. Face Masks.

You can’t go wrong with a good face mask especially after the harsh skin drying winter months! I prefer all-natural and non-toxic skincare, so I love face masks from brands such as: Annmarie Gianni, Lunaroma, and Mad Hippie.

7. Body Washes & Scrubs.

Spring and citrus go hand-in-hand. I absolutely love the body washes and scrubs from Lunaroma. This is because they are made without any of the toxic chemicals commonly found in most body washes or scrubs on the market.

These products will make your skin look beautiful and smell SO incredible. Here are some of their products that I personally love:

8. Jewelry.

You know the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers!” Welcome Spring with floral inspired jewelry. Here are some adorable jewelry ideas from budget-friendly to super splurge:

9. Flower Bouquet.

A bouquet of flowers will enhance the beauty of any Easter basket!

10. Honey.

This Lavender Honey from Savannah Bee Company is the perfect sick day remedy. It’s common for people to get sick due to the sudden change of temperature from very cold to warm in the spring time. This honey is throat soothing and contains antioxidants which boost immune system function.

11. Le Creuset Flower Cocotte.

This adorable little Cocotte is the perfect addition to your kitchen for the spring season. It’s also the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook!

12. Eyeshadow Palette.

I can definitely appreciate a good eyeshadow palette. I tend to favor lighter colors with more iridescence or shimmer during the spring time. Here are some recommendations for highly pigmented and long wearing eyeshadow palettes:

13. Tea.

You can’t go wrong with any of the delicious teas from Traditional Medicinals, Yogi Tea, or Bigelow Tea. This will make a great accompaniment to the Lavender Honey. 😉

14. Books.

It depends on what the person your making the basket for is interested in when it comes to books. In keeping with the theme of this basket, I think cook books or beauty books could work best. 

15. Nails Care.

I like the petite sized press-on nails from Kiss and Impress. There’s all sorts of cute styles to choose from. You could also go the dip powder nail kit route which has been skyrocketing in popularity over the past year. You can follow the tutorial for dip nails here.

All of these products will make great gifts to put in an Easter basket this year. You can put it all together in a cute little basket or even a big purse or beach bag to make it a bit more fun! What’s your favorite item from the list? 😊
