I’ve had a few Magpie Mail inquiries about what I’m putting in my children’s Easter baskets. I ordered these baskets (they lay flat for storage!), though if I had the space for a proper wicker basket, I love these and these and these basket bows!
My usual strategy is to give a book, a toy, something artsy/musical, and some plastic easter eggs filled with M&Ms/jellybeans. (We also do a small Easter egg hunt in our living room, though if we had a backyard, how sweet is this Easter egg hunt sign kit?)
I am big on giving books at every possible occasion, including Easter! Below, a few books to consider for Easter for little babies:
KAREN KATZ BOOKS ARE ALWAYS A HIT WITH MY CHILDREN
PETER RABBIT TOUCH AND FEEL BOOK*
And for slightly older children / toddlers:
*These are the ones I’m buying micro and mini this year, as we own almost all of the others already!
Basket fillers for itty bitty babies (under a year):
TOMY EGGS (MINI LOVE LOVE LOVED THESE AND HONESTLY STILL PLAYS WITH THEM!)
JELLYCAT BASHFUL BUNNY OR A LAMB STUFFIE
And for slightly older children:
CLIP-ON EARRINGS KIT (LOVE)
WATER BASED NAIL POLISH FOR TODDLERS
If you’re doing something big ticket: this bunny ride-along scooter or this bunny sorting toy!
*These are the items I am buying for micro and mini, respectively. Have given several of the others to them already!
I like to have something fun/interactive for them at the Easter table, too, along the lines of:
BUNNY POPPERS (HAD THESE AT OUR TABLE LAST YEAR)
PLUSH BUNNY EARS OR PAPER ONES
More Easter finds, including for your table (and yourself – what to wear!), here and here. And if you’re dropping off treats for friends…how sweet are these!
P.S. I really love this shoe.
P.P.S. More of latest and greatest finds.
P.P.P.S. Loved all the comments on this post.

Love all of this, as always! I’ve loved giving my goddaughter and nieces I Am A Bunny, and The Country Rabbit… the illustrations in both are too darling and classic. When I have children I love the idea of giving a few Ostheimer animal figures at every holiday 🙂 XX
!! Thank you so much for the recs!! Adding these to my list for next year 🙂
