Firstly how is it nearly Easter already? It doesn't feel like it was that long ago since I was putting together Amelia's Easter basket last year! With Easter just around the corner and having the kids Easter baskets all ready I thought I'd share them with you incase you were looking for some ideas or inspiration to create your own. If you are a regular reader then you will know that I love putting little baskets of goodies together for different holidays/occasions. You can view previous ones here for some inspiration, however one of my favourites has to be Amelia's Easter basket from last year.
The baskets are the same as last year which were from eBay I believe and I lined them with some shredded neutral tissue paper to
First up is Harrison's basket...
I want to keep up the tradition of giving Easter baskets to both of the children every year. As Harrison is only two months old I decided to buy a few bits and bobs that would come in useful over the next few months as obviously he can't eat chocolate!
First up I bought a couple of books, I thought the bunny's bedtime book would be a nice book to add to his book collection and the quack quack board book will be great for his development. I bought the duck puzzle because it looked really cute and I'll keep it stored away until he's a bit older. I love Jellycat products so knew I wanted to buy something from their for him and decided on the small bunny soft toy. I also bought a wooden bunny teether from Bannor Toys which will come in handy over the next few months when be begins to teeth.
I bought this lovely set of ducks from eBay as well as the Easter bath soaps which I bought were super cute! Amelia has a large bunny nightlight and I happened to come across this mini one which I thought would be perfect for his nursery. The boon spoon will come in handy when I start him on purees, we used one with Amelia and it was great! I also included some bunny ears which probably won't fit him just yet but at least I'll have them for next Easter.
and now on to Amelia's basket...
With Amelia turning three next month and seeing as everyone will most likely buy her Easter eggs I wanted to give her a few little bits to play with/use over Easter. I bought the majority of the items from eBay.
I love this "Little Chick" book to add to her Easter book collection and I also bought her a colouring book so we can do some colouring on Easter sunday. I did initially buy the crayons to put in the basket but they won't fit so I'll just give them to her separately along with the pencils.
Bunny ears - Bunny socks - Bunny towel - Easter bath soaps (eBay) - Frozen wand (Tesco)
Eos lip balm - Lindt mini bunny - Easter marshmallow lollies - Mini eggs
and lastly I bought her a Rebecca rabbit soft toy to add to her Peppa Pig collection which I thought fitted well with the Easter theme.
Are you doing an Easter basket for your little ones this year? I'd love to know what you've put in them. Let me know below :)
