Listen — we’ve been through a really crazy year. Ok, maybe a crazy few years. We know you’ve heard that many a time, but it bears repeating. You’re not losing it, it’s just been rough. It’s safe to say we could all use a little additional self-care. So, let’s find a reason to take extra care of ourselves, shall we? Enter: a wellness Easter basket for adults. We’re not entirely sure if this is a thing, but it doesn’t matter — it is now!
Whether you’re making one for yourself or a loved one, there’s something really energizing and exciting about a coordinated basket of goodies. Especially when they’re full of self-care soothing goodies that help us feel our best! You can see possibilities laid out in front of you… like a starter pack for a healthier life. A tactile mood board! And the best part is, you can put it to use immediately and begin or jumpstart a healthy journey. Are you ready? Here’s your shopping list with some of our absolute favorite products and essential items.
Easter Basket Goodies For the Fitness Lovers
Blume Beetroot Blend ($20)
Give your brain and your body a boost with this energy-boosting superfood powder. Made with antioxidant-rich ingredients like wholesome beets, cinnamon, and ginger for a caffeine-free pick-me-up that will have you feeling your best. Use it as a pre-workout energizer or mid-day coffee alternative. Serve it hot or cold with your sweetener of choice and indulge in something tasty while meeting your health goals.
Resistance bands are an essential part of your home workout equipment mix, and these are just too cute to pass up. And with three different resistances to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Each set is equipped with light (15-25 pounds), medium (25-35 pounds), and heavy (35-45 pounds) so you can elevate any workout. We love the on-trend spring colors, and the fact that they come with a mesh carrying case — stick them in your gym bag, suitcase, or even your purse! Because they take up virtually no space, you can get your sweat on anytime, anywhere. Even the tiniest of living spaces could make room for these.
Get Your FitOn Yoga Mat ($68)
Perfect for yoga and all your workout needs, this vibrant FitOn yoga mat is any fitness lover’s dream. Choose from two beautiful colors — northern lights or summer sunset — and downdog in style. Made with a no-slip grip and cushioned for comfort with all your needs in mind. Plus, it even comes with a strap for the girl-on-the-go.
Give the gift of muscle relief with this Hypersphere Mini massage ball. Whether you’re tight from a tough FitOn workout or a long day at the office, this small-but-mighty massage ball can offer some major relief. Unlike other massage balls, this recovery tool vibrates, which helps ease muscle tension and soothe sore muscles. Plus, its nimble size makes it the perfect tool to get into those hard-to-reach tension spots. Did we mention it’s just one pound and 3 inches in size? Yep, take it everywhere you go!
A new workout outfit or pair of sneakers serves as serious motivation to move, right? Well, a cute new water bottle does the same when it comes to hydration! That’s why our FitOn water bottle makes the perfect addition to any Easter basket — aside from being chic and simple, this fitness gift promotes healthy habits by encouraging increased hydration! Stash it in your purse or carry it with you while you’re on the move. P.S.it’s great for both hot and cold drinks!
Easter Basket Goodies For The Wellness Fanatics
Give your muscles a soak, with the floral scent of April flowers. This rose petal salt mix from Whole Foods brand 365 smells like you’re traipsing through a garden of mid-spring blooms, while Epsom salts help your muscles relax after a hard workout.
Raaka Chocolate ($6 and up)
Who says you can’t enjoy a piece of chocolate on Easter if you’re following a healthy eating plan? These Raaka Chocolate bars are made with high-quality ingredients, making it easy to indulge guilt-free. Select from a variety of flavors, like Banana Foster, Waffle Cone, Green Tea Crunch, Oat Milk, Vanilla Violent, and Rose Cardamom (perfect for spring!). There’s a flavor for every chocolate lover.
Slip Scrunchies ($20 and up)
ICYMI, silk is way kinder to your hair than the hair-ties we’ve been using for the past few decades (sorry, 90s and 00s hair). It reduces kinks and frizzing, and won’t get caught in your strands (RIP to the chunks of hair we lost ripping out a hair-tie mid-workout).
Grow Plant-Based Candle ($34)
Ahhhh, a fresh springtime scent, using natural plant-based fragrance! This plant-based candle from Grow is sustainable (You can refill the holder! GENIUS!), eco-friendly, made from no synthetic materials, and smells ahhh-mazing. Ideal for your Easter basket, and so health-conscious!
Samaya Meditation Cushion ($169)
Meditation cushions will truly save your spine, hips, and knees… especially if you’re starting to practice often (!!) and have been sitting on the ground or in an uncomfortable position. What’s more is that having this cushion in your room, or somewhere visible in your living space, will be that visual cue each day to sit down and zen out for a few minutes.
Unique Adult Easter Basket Finds
Get your greens! This “comprehensive nutritional support” from Kayo includes alkalizing greens, fiber, immune boosters, and more to help keep you healthy and strong. Blend up some of this wholesome goodness to get digestive support, an energy boost, healthy skin, and more nutrients than many people eat in a whole day.
Have a tea lover in your life? Add this David’s Tea Care Kit Sampler to a wellness-inspired Easter Basket. The artisans at David’s Tea curated this beautiful collection of some of their top wellness blends that are absolutely delicious.
Beauty from the inside out, taken literally. This combination of ingredients is reminiscent of the TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) approach to wellness; this is truly an inside-out approach to skin health, thanks to its focus on gut health. Some people might want champagne in their Easter basket, others want bio-fermented adaptogen drinks to support their wellness. (We want both)
We are in love with this beautifully-organized journal from Papier (with — surprise — a constellation print). It lays out space to track your sleep and hydration, meal plan (yes!), set intentions and practice gratitude, plan your self-care, and record your mood. It’s really got it all.
We hope you find a reason to celebrate this spring — and to celebrate yourself, your health, and a fresh new beginning. And it’s totally OK to dig into a chocolate bunny while you open up these wellness gifts, too. Enjoy!
