Easter Food Baskets

When figuring out what to put in an Easter basket there are a few no-brainers, starting with the obvious one, chocolate. It’s a must, and we’ve got a wide variety of amazing chocolates you can choose from when creating your own Easter basket. Our selection of Lindt Lindor truffles, for example, are one of the nation’s favourite chocolates and add a splash of luxury to any Easter basket they are found in.

Lindt chocolate is a staple in many of our premade Easter baskets, including the Easter Chocolate Lovers Hamper. This mammoth of a basket boasts not only a selection of assorted Lindt truffles but also the iconic Lindt chocolate bunny. This basket also includes a range of other chocolate-inspired sweets and treats that the recipient would love including Lily O'Brien's Sticky Toffee Chocolates and Joe & Seph’s double chocolate caramel gourmet popcorn.

Whilst chocolate is the obvious food to include in your Easter basket, there are an abundance of options to choose from. Why not include some gorgeous Cotswold Brie or even Walker's shortbread fingers? All this and more is available in our Easter Downton Hamper that comes complete with a bottle of beautiful Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon. Maybe chocolate, wine and cheese isn’t your recipient's idea of a perfect Easter basket, or perhaps they’re even on a health kick. Including fruit is a great way to bulk out your basket whilst also balancing out all those sweet treats and chocolates. If a fruit basket sounds like the perfect thing for your loved one then look no further than our Easter Fruit & Muffin Hamper, which even includes a Lindt Chocolate bunny to get them into the Easter spirit.

Easter Beverage Hampers

A great way to complement the food you select for your Easter basket is with a thirst-quenching beverage. You can include as many or as few when creating your own, but we recommend having at least one to wash down all that chocolate. If your recipient is above the age of 18 then an alcoholic beverage is always a superb choice. Whether it's cider, beer, wine or a spirit they’ll be sure to appreciate it this Easter.


If you want to add a bit of luxury to your loved one's Easter then our Easter Bentley Hamper is the Easter basket for them. It contains a selection of amazing snacks and treats, but the real focal point is the Wolf Blass Eaglehawk Shiraz. This beautiful red wine is the perfect partner to the Wainwright's Choice Vintage Mature Cheddar Waxed Truckle; combining these bold flavours is sure to be a hit.

If alcoholic beverages aren’t what you are looking for when considering what to put in an Easter basket, then you still have an abundance of beverages to choose from like an alcohol-free pressé - which is perfect for adults and kids. We recommend including two different flavours to add variety to your Easter basket.

If you need a bit of extra inspiration when creating the perfect Easter basket with a selection of pressés, discover our Easter Trafalgar Hamper. With a selection of cheeses, biscuits and of course chocolates, we think it’s the perfect Easter basket for anyone trying to avoid a tipple this Easter holiday.
