Ever since my daughter was a baby, I have loved celebrating holidays with her. There is something magical about holidays when you have young children or grandchildren, isn’t there? Every Easter since her birth, I have put together an Easter basket for her, and for the past few years, she has hunted Easter eggs as well! This year, her brother gets to celebrate his first Easter as well! He is too young to hunt eggs, but I wanted to make sure he received an Easter basket with age-appropriate goodies!
I have put together some baby Easter basket ideas, for any other moms who want to get their baby an Easter basket, but need some ideas!
Baby Easter Basket Ideas
In my son’s Easter basket, I included:
- A Touch and Feel board book
- An elephant rattle
- Hyland’s Teething Gel (because teething can be brutal)
- Baby shampoo and body wash (we use Shea Moisture)
- A sippy cup
- A cuddly chick
If I’m honest, the teething gel may be more of a gift for me (poor baby is getting 4 teeth at once, and has been sleeping miserably… and me as well, by proxy). I find that putting functional gifts in Easter baskets will help ensure you don’t waste any money, especially since babies don’t really care (let’s be honest!).
If you have older kids or grandchildren and want to get crafty, Organized31 is sharing her easy Easter crafts for kids. I plan on doing this adorable candy holder craft with my daughter!
If you have grown-up kids in college, here is a great idea for you! Wondermom Wannabe has put together an Easter care package for college students! I remember my mom putting together care packages for me, when I was in college, and they were invaluable to me! I can’t wait to do this for my kids when they go to college.
