We set out to discover the best Easter hamper ideas available in the UK this year and we're sure we've found a hamper or basket you will love.
Ranging from the Cadbury Easter Sharing Basket, full of everything needed for an epic Easter egg hunt, to the refined Teatime Hamper full of treats from M&S, these gorgeous hampers make great Easter gifts for adults but are also a fun addition to any at-home celebration.
All of the hampers listed can be delivered throughout the UK mainland, but costs do vary—so we've listed these alongside the RRP of each hamper.
The best Easter hamper ideas for adults in 2022
1. Fortnum & Mason The Easter Hamper
With its iconic F&M emblazoned basket, the Fortnum & Mason hamper is the ultimate indulgent gift for any occasion.
There are carrot-shaped sweets and mini nougat-filled eggs, two different types of delicious biscuits, carrot cake-filled white chocolate bars, marmalade and loose leaf tea, and of course an Easter egg.
2. Cadbury Easter Sharing Basket
Cadbury already make some of the best Easter eggs, so when it comes to Easter hamper ideas that will go down a treat with the whole family, this Cadbury basket wins hands down.
It's jam-packed with Cadbury's Easter classics like Creme Eggs, Mini Eggs, Buttons and more—and if you can't get through it all, it's the perfect type of chocolate to use for baking recipes like like our triple chocolate brownies.
3. Hotel Chocolat Happy Easter Hamper
Hotel Chocolat make some of the best Christmas hampers, and their Easter options are no different. There are different varieties to choose from, but we think the Happy Easter Hamper is the one to go for, offering both value for money and a wide selection of products.
You'll find the brand's Easter bestsellers, including their Strawberries and Cream puddles, Sunny Side Up chocolate eggs, two different types of delicious caramel Bunnies and a box of premium truffles.
They also have a brilliant range of Easter eggs, inlcuding delicious examples of the best dark chocolate Easter eggs, to the one of the best white chocolate Easter eggs we've ever tried–their Champagne option with strawberry-white chocolate. Hotel Chocolat is also the place to go for some of the best vegan Easter eggs on the market.
4. Marks & Spencer The Kensington Teatime Hamper
For a non-chocolate Easter hamper idea, we love this luxury afternoon tea basket from M&S.
The hamper comes with scones, cake, shortbread, jam and tea in a lovely reusable grey hand woven wicker basket.
5. Harrods The Champagne & Sparkling Wine Hamper
This fancy hamper from Harrods comes with a special edition bottle of Taittinger champagne, a bottle of British vineyard Nyetimber's Blanc de Blancs, and two premium Italian sparkling wines, including Harrods' own prosecco. The basket comes with the department store's iconic 'H' logo on the top.
6. The White Company Wellness Hamper
Consider stepping away from the traditional edible gifts and choose a wellness hamper instead.
This beautiful hamper from The White Company is filled with relaxing favourites like their Sleep mist and fragrance oil and one of their best scented candles. It also includes the Spa Retreat body oil, a bottle of their Calm shower foam and a wooden body brush. It's basically one of the best spa breaks in the UK wrapped up in a pretty little basket.
7. Harvey Nichols Cocktail Cabinet Hamper
Make the most of the bank holiday Easter Monday with Harvey Nichols who can provide you with everything you need to make your favourite cocktails, including ingredients for Aperol Spritz, Negronis, Martinis and G&Ts.
There are four different flavours of tonic water and it comes with bar snacks and cocktail garnishes too.
8. Whittard The Signature Hot Chocolate Hamper
Chocolate eggs are great, but for something a little different this Whittard basket would make a lovely and thoughtful Easter hamper idea for adults this year.
It comes with two different flavours hot chocolate powder, two milk chocolate spoons, mini marshmallows and two barista style latte glasses for the ultimate hot chocolate drink.
9. John Lewis & Partners Beer and Nibbles Adventure Basket
Housed in a black wire basket instead of a wicker hamper, this selection from John Lewis includes six bottles of beer—including a dark ale, a pale ale and a bitter—along with a selection of snacks to nibble on.
10. Amazon Mega Chocolate Lovers Gift Hamper
Go simple but impressive with this basket full of chocolate bar favourites. It comes with 17 chocolate bars inside, including Cadbury icons like Dairy Milk, Twirl and Picnic, and popular Nestle picks like KitKat, Rolo and Toffee Crisp.
This is a no-frills gift that doesn't come with the beautiful gift baskets some of the other Easter Hamper ideas do, but you can't beat this basket on price. Definitely one of the best Amazon Easter gifts for kids and grown-ups alike.
11. Harvey Nichols Premium Italian Collection Hamper
Step into spring with the taste of Italy and traditional Italian dishes. This basket comes with premium ingredients like fancy pesto, black summer truffles, bruschetta topping and Cantucci biscuits, as well as coffee grounds and luxury olive oil. It even includes a bottle of Prosecco and a Chianti too.
This could even make one of the best wedding gifts for couples who love their fancy produce—and it would be a particularly lovely touch if they're off to Italy for a honeymoon.
