The Best Pre-Made Easter Baskets for Drinks Lovers
Spring has (finally!) sprung: Flowers are blooming, deep cleaning has commenced and Easter Sunday is barreling toward us, post-haste. With all the busy work this season brings, putting together Easter baskets for everyone on your list is probably the last thing on your mind. But not to worry, we pulled together pre-made Easter baskets, filled with perfect treats for wine and food lovers, based on rave reviews from real customers so you can cross this off your to-do list stat.
The Best Easter Basket for Adults
Mom and Dad (or Uncle and Aunt!) deserve a basket, too. These Easter basket picks for adults are full of decadent chocolates and pourable wines, which can double as a bar restock and dessert after your holiday dinner. Or, these gifts can be tucked away for unwinding after the holiday chaos fizzles out.
California Gourmet Wine Gift Basket
Give your recipient a quick trip to the West Coast—no matter where they live. Alongside a bottle of California Chardonnay, you’ll find beef sausage, French truffles and more delicious snacks from the Golden State.
One reviewer gave this basket five stars and called it “the perfect gift.”
We can’t argue with more than 350 five-star reviews. One customer wrote, “I bought this for my husband for Easter and he absolutely loves it. Thank you, it was beautiful.”
Inside, you’ll find a selection of six beers from producers like Founders Brewing Company, Red Stripe, Kirin Brewing Company and other favorites. The basket also includes snacks like queso cheese dip, pistachios and other fare.
Easter Bubbles & Chocolates Gift Basket
One tiny quibble: This Champagne & Chocolates Gift Basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets contains Prosecco, not Champagne, but with nearly 200 five-star ratings we’ll let that go. One shopper called its collection of truffles, Belgian chocolates and bubbly “a perfect celebration gift.”
Stop and Smell the Rosé
We firmly believe you can never have too many bottles on your home’s wine rack, which is why you truly can’t go wrong with a wine-themed Easter basket. Case in point, Harry & David’s Stop and Smell the Rosé basket, which features a selection of sweets, a pair of stemless wine glasses and a Harry & David 2021 rosé.
Customers love the chocolate-covered pretzels, the colorful packaging and of course, the wine, which one reviewer called “a magical hit!”

Easter Wine Duo
If you’re not sure the type of wine drinker you’re shopping for, Gourmet Gift Baskets’ Easter Wine Duo is a safe bet. The gift covers two main bases with Cabernet and Chardonnay from I Am Wines—plus some cheese, crackers and kettle corn for munching.
One customer wrote “very happy with the prompt attention and service and [I’m] extremely satisfied with the quality of the products in this basket.”
Fifth Avenue Supreme Basket
Hardcore red wine fans will thoroughly enjoy Gift Tree’s Fifth Avenue Supreme Basket, which includes a Pinot Noir and two reserve Cabernet Sauvignons. The added array of Godiva chocolates, churro almonds, artisan crisps and more will make the gift an experience to repeatedly delight in. One reviewer said it was “totally worth the price,” and another raved that the basket “exceeded expectations.”
Cupcake 6-Pack & Rosé and Moscato
Alongside a bottle of Ilo Moscato California sparkling wine and Ilo California rosé wine, you’ll find three red velvet cupcakes and chocolate ganache cupcakes.
It has nearly 50 five-star reviews. As one customer wrote, it’s the “perfect gift for anyone on the run when you can’t decide for something big. I highly recommend [it] and is very good, not too sweet but the flavor of the cupcakes is perfect.”
The Best Personalized Easter Baskets
Personalized Easter Fun Basket
Sure, there’s no booze in this particular basket, but it’s packed with goodies to nosh on. After all, what would a glass of wine be without some snacks to accompany it?
Packed in a felt tote that you can personalize with your giftee’s name, you’ll find a classic chocolate-covered bunny, Moose Munch popcorn, chocolate covered pretzels and more. One reviewer praised the quality and time that went into curating the basket, writing, “Can’t wait to order it again.”

Personalized Easter Gift Box
This pre-made Easter basket offers all the best ingredients for a post-holiday, self-care moment including candles, bath salts and vanilla-scented wax melts with a customizable card. Just add a glass of your favorite wine and you’ll be ready for some much-needed self-care.
Don’t take our word for it, though. This shop has over 1,000 five-star reviews, with one customer writing, “This was such a very nice gift box. The quality was great and the items enclosed matched the description perfectly.”
How to DIY the Best Easter Baskets
If you do find yourself with time and can’t find the right Easter baskets to fit your list, try a DIY Easter basket. Retailers make it easy to self-assemble creative arrangements. Grab an empty basket or unconventional bag, order a mix of treats, candies and drinks and you’re ready to go.
For example, Uncommon Goods offers a fruit and spice alcohol infusion kit for easily elevated cocktails, frozen wine slushie mix for impending warm summer days and beer sleeping bag koozies, because who doesn’t need one of those? You’ll have a perfectly curated Easter basket in no time—just in time for the holiday.
