A baby's first Easter basket is a big deal! Maybe not for the infant, but definitely for the parents. So we are here to help you come up with the best baby Easter basket ideas for your little one this Easter.
A baby's Easter basket can be harder to put together, unlike a toddler's Easter basket. The usual favorite Easter basket stuffers like candy do not work for little ones like they do for big kids.
Fortunately for you, we have a ton of great ideas for your child's Easter basket. There is no need to stress over an Easter basket. So continue to read to get all of the tips and tricks for a stress-free Easter.
One of our biggest tips is to put useful items and practical gifts in a baby's basket. They will not know if their basket is not full of plastic eggs and toys. Honestly, it is probably more for the parents than for the baby.
Practical Easter Basket Ideas
Practical gifts may not seem as fun, but they are definitely a great Easter basket idea because your baby will not remember. Plus you need the stuff anyway! Here are some great examples of basket fillers that will meet your baby's needs:
- Soap: It is something you would not think of, but baby soap is a great Easter basket filler. Bonus points if it has a fresh spring scent like this one with orange and vanilla.
- Lotion: Ditto with the soap. A little bath set is perfect for an Easter basket and it is cute!
- Diapers: You are buying them already, so go ahead and stick them in the Easter basket.
- Bottles: If your baby is taking a bottle, put a bottle in the basket. Ditto with a sippy cup.
- Pacifier: I know I have lost a ton of binkys so it is a good idea to have those in an Easter basket. Make sure you know the baby's preference before buying for a friend.
- Bibs: The ones that are silicone and that catch fallen food are the absolute best. I love how they are dishwasher safe.
Clothing Easter Basket Ideas
Another need is clothing. You can always use more clothing, especially with a baby that grows so fast. It seems like they outgrow clothes every single day.
Here are some clothing items you should add to your kiddos' Easter basket.
- PJs: You can never have too many footie easter pajamas. I always recommend the zipper kind because they make diaper changes super easy.
- Socks: Oh my goodness, we always run out of socks. Maybe it is because we lose them in the wash, but I am always struggling to find a pair of socks.
- Rompers: These little rompers are perfect with warmer weather coming. They make for an easy outfit because it is only one piece of clothing too, which is super nice.
- Adorable Easter outfit: Your baby needs a cute outfit for Easter Sunday! It is a great addition to the basket in our opinion.
- Bows and bow ties: You can get a bow for a little girl and a bow tie for your little man. These would go well with the Easter outfit.
Fun Easter Basket Ideas
Now of course you can add fun items as Easter basket fillers too. Toys with bright colors really make an Easter basket pop. Here are some examples of fun Easter gifts for babies.
- Board books: We love Easter board books because the littles can chew on them and turn the pages without completely destroying them. Bonus points if it is an Easter book.
- Toys: I always recommend this sensory teether toy because it is great for little hands and fine motor skills. It is one of the best first toys you can give your kiddo because it really helps them learn how to control their hands.
- Bath toys: There are so many cute bath toys out there, but we love this whale one because it lights up with tons of colors.
- Wooden toys: Wooden toys are super popular right now because they are aesthetically pleasing. I think they would look great in your kids' Easter baskets.
- Stuffed animals: Go for an adorable stuffed bunny to match the Easter theme.
Older Babies' Easter Basket Ideas
Every kid is at their own level developmentally, but here are some ideas for older babies or those with these skills they are working on.
- Fine motor skill toys: These toys are fun and help kids grow developmentally. We are a big fan of fine motor skills toys around here. This cute dinosaur would be a fun addition to an Easter basket.
- Shoes: You probably have a little walker or kiddo who is close to walking, so get some cute little shoes for your cruiser.
- Clothes: Clothes are always a great option because again, babies grow like weeds.
- Sidewalk chalk: Spring is here, so get your kiddo to spend some time outside with sidewalk chalk. Kids of all ages love sidewalk chalk, honestly.
Hopefully, now you have some ideas of what you should put in your baby's first Easter basket. You do not need to think too hard about it. Have fun with it!
