I think I’ve mentioned this before, but my love language is totally gift-giving. I love shopping for loved ones and finding the perfect presents for them, and I especially love to see their faces when they open their gifts! Since I love a good thematic gift, I put together 4 gift basket ideas for adults, each with a different niche!
I don’t personally celebrate Easter, but I thought that putting together these gift baskets now would be perfect timing for the upcoming holiday! They would also make great housewarming or hostess gifts. I bought all of the baskets at Michaels, and everything inside the baskets came from Paper Source (c/o). The filling for the baskets came from Amazon (link here), and I recommend one bag of filling per basket.
FOR THE BRUNCH LOVER:
You may recognize some of these products from my brunch post back in December! I’m a girl who loves to brunch (call me basic), and these products are just so stinkin’ cute and I know I would personally love to receive them as gifts!
This cereal bar is positively my favorite candy bar ever, and I love this Toast book–I made two recipes from it, and they were both SO DELICIOUS!
I’m still waiting for a good time to make the bagels from this bagel kit, but I’ve read the reviews and am pretty convinced that they’re going to be amazing when I do!

FOR THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS:
We all have that friend that loves to host get togethers (in my case that’s me, ha), and what better way to show your appreciation than with a basket of things a hostess would love? This hostess with the mostess basket includes a Kate Spade recipe binder for her favorite recipes (doesn’t hurt to put your favorite recipe in there to get her started… maybe she’ll make it for you ;) ) and matching Kate Spade lemon tidbit plates–these are plastic and just so cute!
I also included this cookbook which features 100 simple, vegetarian recipes geared for entertaining! It also has floral arranging and other hosting-related DIY ideas. How perfect, right?!
Another fun thing I added was this table topics conversation starter set. Your friend will never have to make small talk again!

FOR THE TEA LOVER:
For the tea enthusiast, this basket has it all. Tea, a loose-leaf spoon, a cute essential oil diffuser, honey spoons, and even an entire book about tea! I have to say that my favorite thing is this “hot-tea” tea canister… it’s so quirky and cute, and it’s sure to provide a laugh or two for guests.
Also, we have to talk about the honey in this box. For every Bee-Cause honey jar purchased, donations are sent to the Bee-Cause Project to help fund the installation of classroom observation bee hives in 1000 schools across America! Sweet in multiple ways, eh?

FOR THE HOMETOWN GIRL:
If you’re anything like me, you just cannot get enough hometown pride. Even though I’m from Arizona, I’ve called Chicago home for almost 3 years now and am positively beaming with pride for this city, hence why this is my favorite of the gift basket ideas.
I should also note that I painted this basket myself because hey, I like consistency. I cut out the Chicago stars (background on the stars and their meanings here) with my Cricut machine; you can get the SVG cut file here if you have a machine of your own!
