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 over 50 affordable, completely candy-free Easter gifts for everyone in your family– including men, women, children, tweens, and dogs.

FYI- A lot of these non-food 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!
