Easter basket ideas for toddlers and babies - cute, safe, fun | My Baby My Star

Is it baby’s first visit from the Easter Bunny? squiee! Or maybe you have a toddler who is just now realizing how much fun a visit from the holiday bunny can be. Double pressure! There’s just one problem: what do you get for that tiny, adorable blob, or that toddler who wants to put everything (edible or otherwise) in his mouth? In that respect, Easter basket ideas for babies and Easter basket ideas for toddlers are essentially the same – it’s all about figuring out whether you should even put one together for a child that young, and if you do, making sure everything you do put in wins don’t hurt your little bunny.

Growing up, your Easter baskets probably looked pretty much the same every year: fun Easter candy, some cute new underwear, and maybe a Silly Putty egg. None of that really works for a baby, right? And let’s face it, any self-respecting toddler would have that silly putty in their mouth in five seconds. Plus, it’s entirely plausible that your precious chonk won’t even remember those early Easter days. Therefore, many parents are not worried about throwing too much time or money into Easter baskets before the kids reach kindergarten.

Some of us though *cough-me-cough* loves any excuse to break the balls when celebrating a holiday. Will your adorable little peach remember those giant pink baskets filled with nonsense? no Could this exorbitant amount of money have been used for diapers, wipes and the like? Secure. But you are here. you are extra And you’re ready to go all out. Hey, game respects game.

So if you’re ready to stuff way too much crap in a pastel colored basket, bucket or tub, we’ve got all sorts of ideas on how to fill it.

On topic… or off topic?

You’re already springing into action like an extra – why not stick with the landing? An Easter basket theme can be as vague or specific as you want it to be. Maybe your theme is just “Easter”. That’s cool. Pastel colors and baby animals will solidify this theme well. But it’s also fun to get a little more specific.

For example, my baby’s first Easter coincided with her turning two months old – and finding out she had ultra-sensitive skin. We made a mostly hygiene-focused Easter basket and filled it with new, softer washcloths, some more expensive, hypoallergenic, some extra yet less soaps and lotions. We also bought the butt cream for “sensitive skin”. But to make it a little more fun we’ve included her first real bath toy and a book about bathing. Next year? Her basket was themed around a pastel green because she had already chosen a favorite color.

So, a theme can be as simple as deciding to stay within a certain color palette, or it can be about fulfilling a need. Since this is an “Easter basket”, there is already a built-in theme. In other words, go as super specific or as wildly random as you like. These early Easter baskets are all about what you want anyway!

Easter basket ideas for toddlers and babies

bath accessories

You probably got some of these things at your baby shower, but they seem to be disappearing super fast. The first, second, and third time your baby poops in their bathtub, you probably just threw away the washcloth you used to clean it. So you can always use more. And really, you will never have too many wipes. je. Hygiene items look cute in a basket, but are also super practical. It’s a win-win situation (especially for you).


If you’re experiencing sleep regressions, are teething, or are beginning to deal with separation anxiety, you may be looking for ways to calm your sweet baby down. Any of these options would be perfect for including in a baby’s first Easter basket or in a basket for your extra snuggly toddler.


We began our lives as parents with a ton from bottles. But no matter how diligent you are in your bottle cleaning duties, you’ll lose some of it over time. And when you find them, you’ll wish you hadn’t. An Easter basket can be a great time to refill your bottle stash, get some new food supplies to start your weaning journey, or just grab some extra cute new bibs.

Funny things

Not everything in this basket has to be practical. Here’s your chance to give in when you see the adorable bunny costume. Or better yet, try a balloon. Research shows that gently and securely tying a balloon to your baby’s kicking feet helps them practice eye tracking, concentration, cause and effect, and more. Of course, this should be done under strict supervision. But you can now literally get cute balloons at The Dollar Tree. So, it’s a cheap thrill for you and your little one
