I come from a family that loves to celebrate. Growing up my parents always made holiday’s special.
I enjoyed every minute and still look back on those memories fondly. Now that I have my own family I am so excited to be on the other side, and watch the joy on my daughter’s face.
Last Easter Alexa was only about 5 months old. We still decorated eggs and she had an Easter basket but of course she didn’t really know what was going on.
This year though, at 16 months old, I know she’ll be excited to search for eggs and will enjoy the goodies in her basket. But what do you put in that basket?
Well lucky for you I scoured the internet for great Easter basket ideas for babies and toddlers and have ever so conveniently listed them for you below. You’re welcome!

Easter Basket Ideas: Things They Needs
Let’s face it, if you put socks and underwear in an eight year olds Easter basket you might be met with a little disappointment.
Babies and toddlers however don’t really know any better.
If you were going to buy it anyway, it might as well fill up some space in the Easter basket. Get away with it while you can!
1.) Clothes! With spring right around the corner it’s probably time to update your little ones wardrobe anyway right?
2.) Socks, you can never have enough socks. Alexa loves to take hers off so they’re always getting lost.
3.) Sunglasses, because bright sunny weather is on it’s way right???
4.) Shoes. April showers bring May flowers, and mud puddles, don’t forget the rain boots!
5.) Toothbrush. You’re suppose to replace them every three months anyway, might as well throw one in the basket.
6.) Hair Brush
7.) Pacifier, this one has a little elephant attached to it. Too cute! That should make it easier to find, i’d think?
8.) Bibs. I came across these Bandana Bibs and they are just adorable!
9.) Sippy Cup. A kid I babysat for had this cup, you can drink from any side of the top but it doesn’t spill when you tip it. I don’t get how it works, but I want it!
10.) Snacks. Kid has to eat anyway right? Snacks like puffs, yogurt melts, or even fruit are all great alternatives to candy.
11.) Hair Accessories
12.) Bubble Bath
Easter Basket Ideas: Toys
I don’t plan on going crazy, it was just Christmas a few months ago.
A few small toys are a nice addition to the Easter basket though.
13.) Stuffed animal. Alexa has a couple but doesn’t really ever play with them. I keep hoping she’ll get attached to one and bring it with her everywhere, just because that would melt my heart. Maybe this bunny will be the one?
14.) Bubbles! I’ll never forget the first
time Alexa saw bubbles. If you haven’t introduced your little one to bubbles yet you’re in for a real treat.
15.) Teether Toys
16.) Rattles. Great for little babies learning how to grasp things. The more practice they have, the better they get. Plenty of Easter themed rattles are out there in different fun shapes and colors.
17.) Gardening Tools
Easter Basket Ideas: Educational
18.) Books. It is never too early to start reading to your child, and it does wonders for their development. Alexa loves when I read to her so I will definitely be including some Easter themed books in her basket.
19.) Shape Sorter
20.) Wooden Puzzles. You’ll find I am a big fan of Melissa & Doug. They have a lot of wooden and fabric toys. I’m not crazy against plastic, I just love the way the wooden ones look.
21.) Flash Cards. Some people think babies and toddlers are too young for flash cards but it’s never too early to start teaching your child and a lot of reasearch states that the younger the child that easier they learn.
I think if I just pick a couple items from each category I can put together a nice affordable basket that is sure to please my little one.
Now if only I could find her basket…
What do you think, did I miss anything? What are you planning on putting in your babies or toddlers Easter basket?

Great ideas! Love this Blog!!
Thanks love, I was literally just yesterday thinking about what I could put in a basket for Ivy this year since we didnt have anything but clothes and toys last year. I very much agree about the bubbles, I’ve never seen a more joyful baby then one that’s experienced bubbles for the first time, absolutely heart melting!
Thank you for reading! Hope you guys have a great Easter!
