Easter and springtime are synonymous, but Easter and baskets really weren’t, at least not until a few hundred years ago. As you know, baskets have a long and storied history, but were primarily used for gathering and harvesting, although egg baskets were used all year round. It’s not hard to see why eggs became symbolic, since Easter is all about rebirth and new beginnings. The decorated egg seems to have emerged, at least in America, sometime around the 1700s. Evolve that over a few centuries, and voila, enter the modern day Easter baskets. Sure, they’re super fun for little ones on egg hunts, or discovered Easter morning, overflowing with Peeps and other kid candies, plus stuffed chicks, ducks and bunnies. Just not so much fun for grown ups.
That’s why we’ve set out to find the best Easter baskets for adults. And, because we like to make a habit of breaking the rules here, they’re not all baskets. Sure, there are a few – and some of them actually contain candy – if you consider the finest European chocolates mere candy. (We think of them more as a life essential.) But we also found sausage filled food crates, and nummy nut boxes and even cardboard coffee samplers that were worthy for this list. In fact, we’ve found so much mouthwatering snackage and sippage, you’ll probably want to get something for yourself.
