What I’m Putting in My Children’s Easter Baskets.

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

BUNNY FINGER PUPPET BOOK

PETER RABBIT TOUCH AND FEEL BOOK*

PETER RABBIT TEETHER BOOK

PAT THE BUNNY

And for slightly older children / toddlers:

A LITTLE BUNNY

MARSHMALLOW

LITTLE WHITE RABBIT*

PETER RABBIT BOARD BOOK

RUNAWAY BUNNY

*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):

CARROT TEETHER

TOMY EGGS (MINI LOVE LOVE LOVED THESE AND HONESTLY STILL PLAYS WITH THEM!)

FINGER PUPPETS

BUNNY TEETHER / RATTLE

JANOD PUSH TRAIN*

JELLYCAT BASHFUL BUNNY OR A LAMB STUFFIE

PAINTED EGG MARACAS*

A PAIR AND A SPARE SET

BUNNY PUSH TOY

And for slightly older children:

NEW MAILEG BUNNY*

WIND UP CHICKS

EASTER CRAFT KIT*

CLIP-ON EARRINGS KIT (LOVE)

PASTEL DOT MARKERS

PASTEL NAME PUZZLE

BUNNY BATH BOMBS

BUNNY EYE MASK

WATER BASED NAIL POLISH FOR TODDLERS

CLASSIC GOODY BARRETTES

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)

BUNNY BALLOONS

MINI PINATAS

LAMINATED PLACEMATS

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.

  1. 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
