Who says Easter eggs are only appropriate for kids? Even if you're beyond the age of actually looking for them in your backyard and taking pictures with giant, mildly-unsettling rabbits, it is always nice to receive some goodies. Plus, Easter lines up pretty nicely with the beginning of spring making it the perfect occasion to take advantage of all the season's new festive floral offerings. Forget wind-up toys and marshmallow sweets — get a little more creative with ideas for what to put in Easter eggs for adults. If you're on a budget, you can always tuck a few coins or even a little poem into the fluorescent plastic case. It's the mystery that makes it fun.

Having an Easter egg hunt for adults is more than just a kitschy idea, but one that really helps bring people together. Since a lot of people in the millennial generation celebrate Easter away from their families, but might not have families of their own, organizing a silly egg hunt is the perfect way to get everyone in the spirit without feeling like they've missed out on a beloved tradition. And luckily, you have all kinds of options at your disposal for how to personalize the eggs that you put in your hunt. While most of them can be filled with some good old-fashioned (packaged!) candy, you can always fill a few special ones with little surprises. Here are some ideas to get you started.
