Southern lifestyle blogger Stephanie Ziajka rounds up 50 non food Easter basket ideas for men, women, and tweens on Diary of a Debutante

Easter’s only a few days away, which means it’s time to start assembling those Easter baskets! My mom’s always adopted a “no food” rule for herself, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve done the same thing. I mean, I appreciate chocolate bunnies and jelly beans as much as the next girl, but I’ll also eat them all in one sitting. Unfortunately, thoughtful non food Easter basket ideas can be hard to come by, especially for people who are already notoriously difficult to shop for. I have lots of experience in that department (looking at you, Kyle), so if you’re also searching for some fun and creative non food Easter basket filler ideas, keep reading! I’m rounding up 50 affordable Easter gifts for everyone in your family– the men, women, children, and tweens.

FYI- A lot of these Easter basket filler ideas overlap (I mean, who doesn’t love cozy socks or a good coffee mug?), so I tried my best to not be too repetitive. I’m also not including alcohol, although beer and DIY mini glitter champagne bottles are super cute and great for filling space!
