With social distancing in full swing, order the locally made Easter baskets for holiday joy at home.
Easter in quarantine? We know, it’s not ideal. Unlike Easters of the past, ones filled with family, egg hunts, and visits from the Easter bunny, this year’s celebration comes at a time when everyone is still grasping for a new normal. Even so, a small, at-home celebration doesn’t mean it can’t be a good one. Will it be different? Yes. It’s only lackluster if you make it, though.
To make the occasion easier, we compiled a few of our favorite Hudson Valley-made Easter baskets that can be ordered online and delivered to the front door. For chocolate lovers, Krause’s Chocolates in Saugerties, Rhinebeck, and New Paltz has the most scrumptious cocoa-filled collection.
For foodies, Beacon Pantry offers made-to-order gift baskets stuffed with its top-selling goodies. Have a household full of children? Millerton and Rhinebeck’s Oblong Books crafts a one-of-a-kind basket that includes a book to keep kids busy for an evening…or at least half an hour.
For those who want to send a gift basket this Easter but are staying away from chocolate, check out the assortments at Adams. Adams Fairacre Farms offers fruit baskets, a gardener’s basket, tea and coffee baskets, cheese baskets, and so much more. Order online to have them shipped directly.
Beacon Pantry crafts made-to-order holiday baskets that are completely customizable. For a fancier affair this Easter, email the store with your vision to place an order. Curbside pickup and delivery are both available.
Dulcet Gift Baskets helps us all celebrate differently this year.

Although this vegan chocolate store only offers one basket, it is one full of 12 chocolate eggs. Don’t miss out on this ready-to-go Easter basket that has four English cream eggs, four peanut butter eggs, and four milk chocolate marble eggs.
