With COVID-19 impacting all aspects of life, Easter celebrations are likely to look at least a little different this year—online masses and Skype sessions with far-flung family, for instance—but we know a lot of people will still be enjoying Easter baskets and traditional dinners. So we’re sharing ideas we hope will help bring happiness to you and yours. Here, an adult Easter basket decked out with all things wine.

Whether or not you are assembling baskets for young ones in your life this Easter, there’s no reason why you can’t play Easter Bunny for an adult or two also. You probably know plenty of candidates who would happily binge their way through a kid-friendly basket of chocolate, Peeps, and jelly beans (*raises hand*) but there are other, adultier basket themes that can be thoughtful and seasonal.
