Believe it or not, it is possible to get Easter-candied-out. Between all the chocolate bunnies and sugar-covered marshmallows, it can feel like the only food enjoyed on Easter is full of sugar and, frankly, super sweet. If you're searching for alternatives to a basket filled with jelly beans, chocolate and the like, we've gathered some fun, Easter food gift baskets that aren't centered around candy.

The Swiss Colony

This assortment is basically a charcuterie board in a box, making for an ideal Easter spread. Sweet options like petit fours and pastel gummy bunnies (isn’t that fun to say!) are balanced out with a variety of cheeses, meats, breads and jams, making it perfect for post-Easter snacking.

Edible Arrangements

This basket is almost too pretty to eat! Chocolate dipped pineapple bunnies and daisies look adorable next to fresh fruits like strawberries and grapes, all arranged beautifully and ready to display. It comes in three sizes, so it's great for an individual gift or family affairs!

Williams Sonoma

If you’re looking for the perfect Instagrammable Easter dessert, look no further. Festive designs like a hand-scripted "Happy Easter," bunnies and flowers are detailed and handcrafted on these special edition macarons. The colorful French treat combine "crisp meringue shells with decadent fillings of fruit jam and fluffy buttercream."

Williams Sonoma

Sprinkles galore! These sweet, tart caramel apples are handcrafted with juicy Granny Smith apples and "buttery homemade caramel." The set of four includes an apple pie and cheesecake flavors, along with two Easter Caramel Apples dipped in fun sprinkles.


This Easter-fied trail mix comes in 10 individual packages, making it perfect for snacking on the way to an egg hunt or a great basket filler! Pastel M&Ms and white chocolate-covered pretzel balls, marshmallows and confetti cookie pieces put a springy spin on the classic mix.


Even the Easter bunny will be jealous of these snacks! This "charming medley of sweets features a variety of whimsical and colorful treats," including white chocolate-covered pretzel twists designed to look like bunnies and mini pretzel rods that could pass for sparkling carrots. Put these tasty treats out on display for all to enjoy or sneak them into an Easter basket for your favorite little bunny.


There’s just something about colorful fruit that reminds us of spring and the warmer weather tucked just around the corner. Along with fresh fruits and the classic chocolate bunny, this basket includes Sea Salt & Cracked Peppercorn Water Crackers, cheddar cheese and Raspberry Peach Champagne Jam for a more sophisticated spread.

The Popcorn Factory

Don’t want to fill your pails with eggs? Fill them with popcorn instead! This new strawberry champagne drizzle has strawberry pieces scattered throughout and comes in an aesthetically-pleasing Easter pail.
