Baby & Toddler Easter Basket Ideas



I can't believe Easter is right around the corner! I always remember as a kid getting enough Easter eggs to last me at least a month, or maybe I just ate them slowly either way I loved Easter. A few days ago I shared Amelia's Easter Basket with you all and many of you have been asking for ideas of what to put in an Easter Basket so today I thought I would put together a list of ideas to help you pick items to go in your child's Easter Basket. Now that I have a daughter of my own I love coming up with fun and creative ways to make each holiday that extra bit special. Which is why I decided to put together a little Easter basket for her just like her Christmas one but with Easter goodies instead. I hope to continue this tradition for special holidays as she grows up.

You can buy a wicker basket or metal bucket from eBay or even pick up a cute easter basket if you happen to come across one in a shop. Or why not make your own? I bought mine from eBay and it's just a white oval wicker basket incase you were wondering. You can find them in many shapes and sizes so I'm sure you'll find something to your taste. 

You may then wish to fill your basket with some Easter grass which you could use tissue paper or any the stuff you sometimes find in your parcels which is a natural colour and looks like grass. What ever you decide I'm sure it will look great! 

Next you want to buy items for your basket. There are many places that you can shop for ideas to fill your basket.
  • Pound land/ B&M/ Home bargains - Good for picking up chocolate/sweets or little toys.
  • Tesco usually have an Easter section closer to the time with bits and bobs to choose from.
  • eBay - You can find pretty much anything on eBay.
  • Etsy - For handmade items such as personalised goodies and easter outfits. 
Here are some ideas of what to put in your child's basket, I've tried to include both boy and girl options and also some gender neutral too. I've also includes links on some of them so you can find them easily. Make the basket fun to look at, if you're not keen on giving Easter eggs at Easter then an Easter basket will be perfect for you and your family. Fill it with little treats which aren't food related or perhaps opt to give an alternative to an Easter egg and give a smaller bag of sweets.

  3. What lovely ideas! We normally do an Easter trail around the house and garden if it's not raining. I have never done an Easter basket but seeing yours makes me think I should - it looks beautiful and I could introduce it as the one thing to find at the end of the trail. Definitely going to do that!! Thank you.

  4. This is such a lovely idea. No good buying babies easter eggs! I love the addition of the Peter Rabbit book and of course no easter is complete without some mini eggs for mummy ;)

  5. They are beautiful and are a much better surprise than chocolate eggs! This year I am going to buy a bag of little chocolate eggs and some Easter chicks to hide for the twins to find :-) x

  6. We have never bought the boys Easter Eggs and always given them an activity basket. They get enough chocolate from relatives.

    1. Very true! I'd rather do something like this instead of allowing them to stuff their faces with chocolate, although I'd probably eat most of them :P x

  7. I want one for me! Cute idea and I adore Easter. I usually get my son some new toy animals, the nice Schleich ones and get him a duck, chicken, lamb etc, as he's not much into chocolate. Can't wait for Easter this year!

    1. Ooh I've not seen them animals I must take a look! Wow, not into chocolate?! Haha! x

  8. My little one gets an empty basket and then clues to hunt around the garden and house for little treats. We love a good easter Hunt here :-)

  12. We usually do an Easter egg hunt around the garden which our kids love, but having seen this I'm very tempted to 'hide' other presents amongst the chocolate too. Both of my love crafty things so perhaps I should be thinking outside of the box this Easter!
