We've pulled together 13 of our favorite goodies from our Shop that'll be fantastic additions to the assortment you're planning. From gourmet chocolates and candies to cozy home goods like candles, throw blankets, and knit robes, there's something for everyone.

Go on, hop to it!

3. Venchi Chocolate Easter Hatched Chick Trio, $45

One thing you can always count on with the Easter season is the plethora of rabbit, egg, and baby-chick-themed candies. The only downside? This hatching chick is so cute you almost don't want to bite into it. Want different options? Venchi also makes a bunny and a hazelnut egg.

6. Frog Hollow Farm Organic Meyer Lemons, $48+

If the person you're buying for doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, consider filling their basket with a few of these organic Meyer lemons. Shipped directly from Frog Hollow Farms in Brentwood, California, these delicious lemons are known for being a cross between a traditional lemon and a mandarin orange. They're sweeter than a traditional lemon, but less bold than an orange—it's the perfect not-too-sweet treat.

7. Bella Cucina Preserved Lemons, $40

If they prefer their citrus preserved instead of fresh, add these preserved lemons from Georgia to their basket. They're versatile, delicious, and something you'll never regret having in your pantry.

For the home

If you're building a basket for someone who is less of a snacker and more of a comfort-seeker, these are a few of our favorite cozy goods they'll be excited to find in their Easter bundle.

9. Plant the Box Scented Candles, $30+

Bring the scent of a spring garden indoors with these herbal- and floral-scented candles. The fun surprise? The name is literal: You can plant the box the candle comes in.

Buy the scents individually (there are eight to choose from) or as a bundle—the "Flower Bouquet Bundle" comes with Siam poppy, sweet sunflower, and heath lavender, while the "Herb Garden Bundle" comes with crushed mint, Somerset thyme, and heath lavender.

12. Cotton Pinstripe Throw, $149 $103.99+
