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 also can’t get enough of any Sugarfina candy (sweet tooth over here), and these rosé gummies are amazing. Remember the champagne gummy bears from Friendsgiving? YUM.
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.
My favorite item in this collection is definitely the map print, and I can’t wait to hang it up! The candle also smells lovely, and looks perfect alongside the matchbox on my coffee table.
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!
P.S. If you live in Chicago: places to get your creativity on in Chicago, what to buy for a Chicago winter, and Chicago’s best ice cream.
