The Easter season is a time of great joy and celebration. We gather together—in our churches, with our families and friends—and give thanks for the miracle of Jesus risen. Often we give gifts, Easter baskets and Easter eggs, to the children around us in a reflection of the ultimate gift God gives to us all.
But this outpouring of love and generosity can extend to everyone in our lives, the young and the young at heart. As we give thanks to God for the Good News of Easter, we have an opportunity to show our appreciation and care for those who support and uplift us. Here are some thoughtful ideas for Easter basket ideas for gifting to your mom this season.
Why Easter Baskets?
What sets Easter gifts apart from the presents of other holidays and occasions is often the presentation of Easter baskets. We may be tempted to view this tradition as reserved solely for the kids as they scour the yards for their Easter eggs. But building an Easter basket for an adult is a great way to personalize and tailor your gifts to the person you want to honor.
You can select a theme based on the recipient’s interests or hobbies. This can help spark inspiration and give direction when you find yourself unsure of the right gift. Here are a few ideas for baskets you can create to show your mom some love.
An Easter Basket to Inspire
Celebrate your loved one’s creative spirit with Easter gifts for adults designed to inspire.
Explore the intersection between beauty and faith within the contexts of our lives. Perfect for artists and creative or for those looking to reflect upon the impact and import of beauty in all of creation. Through the story of Mark 14:1-11, The Story of the Woman with the Alabaster Jar, this book strives to articulate the intuitive relationship between it and the things of God: calling, spirituality, mission, and more.
Words have always encouraged us. Amidst the joy, timely encouragement brings delight. Amidst sorrow, it brings serenity. On any occasion, written words can create connection and remind us that we belong to each other. Alabaster’s Notecard Collection helps you practice this evident and needed goodness.
Combining artistic expression with a rumination on Scripture, the Inspire: Psalms coloring book is a perfect gift. Your mom can read through the Book of Psalms in its entirety, while pausing to color and illuminate keywords of wisdom from the text.
Finally, no Easter basket would be complete without some sweet treats. The childlike wonder and joy of Easter come to life in an elegant and elevated way with this delicious gold foiled chocolate Easter egg from Williams Sonoma.
An Easter Basket to Soothe

This prayer candle—a collaboration between Alabaster Co. and Musee—brings together lavender and rosemary with scents of crisp freshness and green earth, opposites combined, to evoke the bringing together of all things—unity, rest, and ultimately God's peace.

Give your mom and reminder of God’s steadfast love with this beautiful necklace from New Creation Handmade. "Hesed" is the Hebrew word that is best described as "loving-kindness" or "steadfast love"—biblical love. This necklace is a visual reminder of Hesed, a purple amethyst at the center to remind us that we are loved by the King of Kings.
A classy sweet indulgence, glazed almonds were first served at lavish feasts in ancient Greece. These colorful treats are made from best-quality Spanish almonds encased in thin pastel-colored sugar shells. They make delightful additions to Easter baskets and candy jars or springtime party favors.
An Easter Basket to Invigorate

Also part of the Alabaster and Musee collaboration, this prayer candle has notes of sandalwood and bergamot, fragrances of sturdy wood, and rich citrus to express the qualities of strength—resilience and a quiet assurance—rooted in the awareness as being divine-children of God.
Paired together, the books of Psalms and Proverbs invite us to ruminate on wisdom. As we read these books, we are encouraged to feel—to reflect; we are connected to those who have come before us as they navigated the joys and challenges of life and explore what it means to know God.
The journey of becoming “steadfast” is not a simple one. It takes a mindset of consistency and discipline. Copa Vida understands and values every morning ritual that propels us forward in our work.
