Items for an Adult Easter Basket Exchange

Any ideas for men's Easter baskets? I have done food, so I looking for something new I can purchase or make. We do an adult basket exchange and it can change hands 3 times before it is kept. With that said we have all size men from small to XXL. That makes it more difficult.

I have cuff links I am making for Christmas prizes, so I don't need that and that is the top gift I seem to find on the internet for gifts for men. I can't do sports as each person likes a different team, some golf and some don't. I need something generic. Please Help.

How about generic office supplies, you could go as inexpensive or not so inexpensive as you need to. Pens, pencils, post-it notes, clips, a stapler, etc. Whether taken to work or used at home, it's stuff most people can use. Or maybe small games, classics like checkers, chess, cards, dominoes, etc. Add some microwave popcorn and call it "game night". Again, you can go dollar store or more upscale.

You could do an emergency kit with a space blanket, small first aid kit, a candle with waterproof matches, a flashlight, maybe a sewing kit, a multi-tool of some sort, maybe a small can opener, etc. A sports spectator survival kit: sunscreen, maybe bug wipes or repellent, a bottle of gatorade, a cup/can coozie, lip balm, some sort of noisemaker, etc. Other ideas: car wash kit, shoe shine kit, a breakfast kit (pancake mix, good syrup, maybe a small non-stick pan, etc).

I suspect others will have ideas, as well. Sounds like you're in for some fun!

How about socks, a jar of mixed nuts, a simple man's manicure set, shaving lotions, "manly" shower gels, tire pressure gauges (for air)? I see what my husband gets a kick out of when he accompanys me to the dollar store and I make a mental note for occasions like this. Have fun with this!

First thing I thought of was a Tide stain stick.

Then a gift certificate to a car store or hardware store (Lowes/Home Depot).

You could also get a set of nail clippers for on a key chain.

How about a Walmart money card.

A gas card for a local gas station that seems pretty popular.

A deodorant stick (brute/ old spice).

A deck of cards.

Movie passes.

A pocket knife.

A small keychain flashlight or just a small light that can be kept in a car.

A McDonald's card.

I am just thinking of things that more than half the men in my church would enjoy.

A popcorn kit could be fun to put together, different types, assorted seasoning salts, an inexpensive bowl, and perhaps a vintage western or action flick that you can get for $5.

JLson: Our children are all grown up and I thought who doesn't like an Easter Basket so we started it. Now into the 7th year. It took a while for them to catch on, but there is no price limit just an Easter basket. Well I go all out......and they have gotten better at the baskets items.

Then my fil said let the boys have an Easter egg hunt. Now seriously they are all grown up, I thought I will get even. I will do an Egg hunt alright, I will do one egg per person and they all have to hunt for only their egg. We also said that you could move someone's elses egg if you found it. The first year we lost an egg, and wasn't until spring when we were remodeling an garden area that we found it and it was a real one. Lol This now will be our 3rd year of doing this.

I love the pop corn idea, and I have receipes to make different colored ones. I might have to look into that see if you can do it, without having to make it up, so they could make it up when they want.

Thanks of the other ideas posted too. Wow you people are gerat.
