Creating your own luxury Spring Gift Basket just got easier! I grew up receiving Easter Baskets from my mom and even as an adult, she would create baskets for us. She’s the same woman that would pack my lunch when I was 35 so this isn’t shocking to people that knew her. She would get up early, drive to my house and leave them at our door early on Easter mornings. It’s a memory that I cherish and miss now that she’s passed. This year I thought I would give the memory some life and create my version of her baskets.
The first thing you have to determine is what products and goodies you want to include to make a well-rounded, fun adult Easter Basket. Note, you don’t have to use it solely for Easter, but this makes a great Springtime Gift Basket for any friend, colleague or loved one.
I’ve put together a list of luxury products that make the perfect gift inclusion in your own Spring Gift Basket. Enjoy!
Spa time has been elevated to a chilling new level. Just in time for our at-home beauty lifestyles. Gelid Beauty was created to provide everyone with a unique product to add to their skincare routine. It does not matter what your skincare needs are; whether you want to help remove wrinkles, dark circles, and shrink pores, or just a little spa time, Gelid Beauty has amazing options. I love this 4 in 1 massage tool, Gua Sha. This is an electronic scraping device that combines gua sha, heating, vibration and LED red light therapy. Now you can combine all 4 features to get that glowing skin from within. This is a must-have for anyone wanting to up their skincare game. You can purchase it in blue or pink. The packaging is sleek and looks amazing in your basket.
Let’s be honest, a gift basket without some chocolate just isn’t a gift basket! I chose a favorite, Harry and David’s Chocolate Truffles. There is something literally wrong with you if you don’t love these. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of their opulent treats but I’m partial to their truffles. Their truffle recipe has been going strong for over 30 years and when you bite into the gourmet chocolate with that cream center it’s a wonderful experience. I’ve tried chocolates from all over the world and it’s nice to know that chocolate like this is being made in Oregon. These silky treats come in a variety of flavors milk chocolate, white coffee, and dark chocolate cherry. The variety gift box is ideal for letting someone try them out.
I always like to include something unique and beautiful in my baskets. Ana Carolina Valencia Jewelry is exactly that. This jewelry collection with a distinctive bronze look, harkening artisanal skills of the past to create modern pieces of Colombian beauty. Sourcing raw materials throughout Colombia, the brand takes the traditional filigree technique and made it their own. The result is earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets that are worn as pieces of art and made to be passed down through generations. This is a huge reason I decided to include it in my basket this year. Exquisite detail, fine materials, and artisanal mastery combine to create jewelry unlike any other. I’m in love with this jewelry line. It will be hard to not get something for yourself when you’re purchasing for your gift basket build. Splurge and enjoy.
My mom always included some sort of journal or a box of note cards in her baskets. I decided to include a planner. The Happy Planner has beautiful options and there is something for everyone. This company’s strength is in design and creative innovation and they continue to bring new products and creative accessories to the market. The Classic size is perfect for everyday planning. It will give you plenty of space for daily planning and open areas to decorate monthly calendars and weekly spreads with themed stickers.
The vertical layout features daily boxed spaces that can be used as a timeline of daily plans or divided into sections like work life, home responsibilities, and personal appointments. It makes it easy for you to customize it to your planning needs!
When ordering add some fun accessories that they offer like their covers and stencils and stamps. A perfect way to live creatively.
I don’t think I’ve ever received a gift basket without it including a candle. We’re not going to leave this staple out. I went with the luxurious Neom Candles. If you don’t know about these, you should. 100% natural wax candles contain the highest quality natural essential oils and are available in all of their five wellbeing ranges. No synthetic fragrances or chemical binders, ensuring they burn completely cleanly and evenly with no black soot.

Yep, more chocolate! This favorite of mine comes in the form of Liqueur Chocolates. Ethel M Chocolates offers a variety of smooth and delicious Liqueur-style chocolates. Their variety gift box includes a fondant creme center mixed with premium spirits of bourbon, Irish cream, orange liqueur, anejo tequila, amaretto, and rum. This gift box collection features decadent chocolate filled with creamy masterfully blended centers that contain all your favorite premium spirits. They do not use bottom shelf, imitations. It includes Meyer’s® Dark Rum, Bailey’s® Irish Cream, Knob Creek® Small Batch Bourbon, Herradura® Anejo Tequila, and Grand Marnier® Liqueur.
I love when I receive new teas to try. DAVIDsTEA offers an amazing After Dinner Sachet Tea Wheel that I cannot get enough of when thinking of gift-giving. This is a perfect addition to any gift basket. This gift box comes with a mix of 12 satisfying dessert teas and soothing digestive blends packed in 36 sachets. It is caffeine-free so it’s a guilt-free after-dinner treat you and friends will love.

It’s easy to add a bottle of wine or two to any basket, but what I did instead this year was include a Wine Club Membership from Winc. This is a great gift that keeps on giving. Winc—a California-based winery offers this amazing online membership experience, with wines that are featured at select retailers and restaurants nationwide. Winc connects you to a world of exclusive wines tailored to your tastes and offers wine delivery right to your door.
Don’t want to create your own gift basket or box. I love BOXED Gift Co. BOXED Gift Co. creates pre-curated gift boxes designed to make your gift buying experience fast, stress-free, and exciting. Each creation includes mindfully selected items, 90 percent of which come from small businesses that hand-make their goods, ensuring your gift is truly crafted with love and care.

Every gift box is hand-packed and wrapped carefully, including a custom handwritten note inside so your loved ones know who gave them this special gift.

I love their Kitchen Goodness Gift Set. It really is perfect for even housewarming or that picky person you’re not sure of. They have made it easy so there are no excuses. It’s a go-to website that I have pinned to my browser, I advise you do the same.
I hope this spring you can share some joy with someone as my mom did with me!
