If you celebrate Easter, you know it’s a holiday that can be tons of fun for the kids — but no one ever said adults can’t get a little treat, too. Ahead, we’ve rounded up a few elevated items you can throw into a bespoke adult Easter basket (including some spicy things for your partner that are very much not for kids). And if you don’t have the bandwidth for a DIY Easter basket this year, we also found some beautiful premade baskets filled with luxurious snacks, like gourmet truffles and wine. Hop to it.
