The Best Easter Egg Hostess Gift

Easter is probably my favorite holiday! It’s meaning stretches far beyond little bunnies and egg hunts for me. My roots run deep in this holiday and I’m so thankful for the ability to freely celebrate our risen Savior, Jesus! While I hold tight to these beliefs, I’ve always enjoyed the other activities Easter brings as well.

I always remember coloring eggs as a kid and the excitement of thinking about which colors I would choose. I also enjoy eating all things boiled eggs (egg salad, deviled eggs, need I say more?), so having an abundance of hard boiled eggs around is fine by me!

If you’re heading out to gather with family or friends for Easter this weekend and you would like to bless your host or hostess with a fun, out of the box gift idea… I’ve got a pretty cute idea.

I don’t care how old you get, coloring Easter eggs is still fun. Half of the battle (at least for me) is boiling all of those eggs! I’ve learned that having chickens that lay different colored eggs brings this activity to a whole new level. The eggs become such beautiful colors!

For a fun and easy hostess idea, I’m going to bring already boiled eggs and a little kit for my hosts to color their eggs. You can make a cute little thank you note for them as well and you’re all set! Of course you could send a dozen non-boiled eggs as well and your hosts will still go wild for them too.

Here’s my secret for the best hard boiled eggs for Easter eggs – Air Fryer!

Air Fried Hard Boiled Eggs

Place eggs in a cold air fryer. Set temp for 250 degrees and set the timer for 18 minutes. When it’s done, I run the eggs briefly under cold water. They are perfectly done and peel great! Keep in mind air fryers are all a little different and you may have to experiment. However, there’s no turning back for me!


I pray your Easter is full of all the things you love the most. He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Until next time,
