13 Easter Gift Ideas for Food-Lovers
Fill your basket with cheese, truffle eggs, and honey.
Easter baskets aren't just for kids; they can be enjoyed just as equally by adults, too. Which is why we've come up with the ultimate list of treats, both sweet and savory, to fill a grown-up Easter basket. The spread includes plenty of gifts for food lovers, from chocolates made by high-end chocolatiers (milk chocolate gianduja Easter eggs, anyone?) to spicy honey and a charcuterie gift box. And don't worry, we didn't forget the chocolate bunnies, either. Read on to see your options.
Mouth Easter Gift Box
This Bunny Hop gift box from Mouth is basically a ready-made basket loaded with snacks. Craving jelly beans? Reach for the "Magic Beans." In the mood for marshmallows? You'll find those in the box, too, and they're "flavored with peanut hazelnut crunch, and finished with a Fair Trade chocolate swirl." And yes, there's a chocolate bunny, too. If you want to go all out, you can also upgrade to the Basket Case at $128, which comes with 12 items as opposed to eight.

Easter Egg Truffles
Chocolate Easter eggs are a holiday classic, and Charbonnel et Walker filled these with milk chocolate gianduja and added sea salt for a savory note. A shimmery finish tops them off—they come packaged in an egg-shaped box, so they're easy to gift.
