Original Easter Gifts for All Ages

Think outside the box (or basket) this Easter and surprise friends and family with these memorable gift ideas.

Visiting family and friends this Easter and don't know what to bring? Or maybe you'd like to surprise your children or relatives with Easter presents that speak just to them. Check out this collection of gifts designed to delight the variety of people in your life.

For Children

Surprise young children with a Fluffy or Cottontail bunny and Ghirardelli squares and Easter Impressions. To add a fun activity, include LEGO's Easter bunny with Basket, or for the tween set, a pastel-colored or bunny-themed iPhone case.

Let kids express their creativity by making an Easter egg tree to bring to family or friends' homes: Arrange branches (such as pussy willow or cherry blossom) in a vase then deck out with dyed eggs and Ghirardelli Easter eggs hung from colorful ribbons.

For College Kids Who Can’t Make it Home for the Holiday

For the little kid still in their hearts, send a bag of Ghirardelli Easter Impressions along with a kite, frisbee, and wiffle ball set to help them get outdoors and celebrate the arrival of spring. Or send an Easter feast to your college student or other faraway family members and friends who can’t be at your house this year. Check out the tasty brunch items from Stonewall Kitchen and Dean & Deluca or deliver an entire Easter dinner from Harry & David right to the door.

For Cooks

Give your favorite foodie a tote bag stocked with Ghirardelli Easter Impressions Squares in Milk & White Chocolate and an assortment of kitchen accessories and gadgets like a Nordic Ware Easter Bunny Cake Pan from Williams-Sonoma, chick-shaped egg cups and spoons, a bunny tea towel and the Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook, packed with scrumptious recipes for Easter entertaining.

For Nature Enthusiasts

Put together a present that’s all about celebrating spring. Assemble a flower pot with packets of flower seeds, an herb kit, bird house, binocular, Ghirardelli Easter Eggs, and a bird guide book (or Audubon app). Other options with spring flair: Engraved bird note cards and a Williams-Sonoma bunny botanical print tablecloth.

For Fitness Buffs

Instead of a standard Easter basket, delight someone who loves to work out with a gym bag loaded with a water bottle, jump rope, resistance bands, hand weights, socks and exercise mat, all in Easter colors. Be sure to include Ghirardelli Milk & Dark Chocolate Easter Impressions—studies have shown dark chocolate can provide an array of health benefits!
