Whether you are looking to create a masterpiece filled with an attractive display of nostalgic and modern-day Easter candy or you simply want to put together an inexpensive basket filled with a few basic styles of Easter candy, shopping online is probably the easiest way to find all of the holiday candies that you want to include. You can even create a themed Easter basket with relative ease.
Today’s candy manufacturers have created every type of candy you could possibly want from chocolate-covered delights to marshmallow bunnies to sour candies to solid chocolates to candy-filled morsels to candy-filled plastic shapes to gourmet candies. It’s easy to find a style of candy to please everyone! If you need a little help, why not consider our fabulous Handyman Gift Basket for the man in your life?
Themed Easter Baskets for Adults
While this might seem like a silly idea, themed Easter baskets are actually kind of clever. If you think back to your childhood, then you are going to remember that you actually did prefer the hollow chocolate rabbit over the hollow chocolate chicken, or maybe you preferred the Peep chicks over the Peep rabbits. Who didn’t have a favorite type of Easter animal? The easiest way to create a themed Easter basket is to pick either bunnies or chicks and to simply buy all of your Easter candy in those shapes.
Of course, you can also create a color-themed basket that includes candies of all one color. Plus, you have the option to add a few non-candy items in your Easter basket to make your own theme. For example, you can purchase some old-time, nostalgic candies and include prepaid movie tickets to go along with them. Bite-size candies such as Easter Candy Dots, Sugar Babies, Lifesavers Gummy Bunnies & Eggs, or Pastel Junior Mints are perfect for a movie-themed basket.
Tips for Arranging Your Easter Basket
When you change the Easter grass each year, it’s a nice idea to try and match the color to the Easter candies that you are planning to place into the basket.
Sprinkle the smaller candies in between the larger candy items. A few brightly colored jelly beans, Speckled Robin’s Eggs, or M & M’s can fill in the gaps easily while adding more color.
Keep in mind whether the person you are creating the basket for prefers the fruit flavored or the spicy variety of jelly beans, so you buy the right ones.
For adults who love nostalgic Easter candies, think about including any of the following Easter candies: Trolli Gummy Bunnies, Wonka Hoppin Nerds Easter Candy, Wonka Sweet Tart Gummy Bunnies, or Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Bunnies.
