Celebrating Easter with your baby is so sweet, and so much fun. Finding the most adorable outfit; gathering with family and friends to share traditions and meals and give them a baby fix. Putting together your baby’s Easter basket, too. Pretty and traditional, or vibrant and completely original? Enjoy every minute of imagining what you want it to be, and shopping for – or making – everything you’ll put inside. In a year or so, your little guy’s or girl’s wishes will influence your choices. But for this year, it’s all up to you (and the Easter Bunny, of course. ;)
Are you choosing your child’s Easter basket and planning to use the same one, year after year? Will Grandma or Grandpa will gift one to baby (and if it’s not what you would choose, there’s nothing wrong with having one for home and one for Grandma’s house). Or maybe you won’t be so tied to tradition and pick a fresh and fun one each spring. You’ll know the right one when you see it.
What to put in an Easter basket for a baby? Springtime themes jump off the shelves at Easter … beautiful stuffed bunnies or lambs. But if you ask us, a snuggly, soothing seahorse can be just as sweet! If bright and groovy is more to your liking, the Easter Bunny would be very happy to introduce your baby to BeatBo! He’s an inspiration that’s sure to get your little one moving. Baby books are always a good choice for an Easter basket, or colorful blocks to build the play as baby grows through the first year. For a keepsake, you could decorate or purchase a very special Easter egg your child will keep year after year. If your baby has big brothers or sisters, creating a keepsake egg for the baby is a memorable project for your family and a great way for your kids to feel connected now, and always.
Thinking outside the Easter basket for gift ideas makes a lot of sense when your baby is this age. This first year is full of rapid growth and development and so many stages of learning. If you choose toys that grow along with baby – like the Smart Stages toys with play patterns that change as your child advances through different stages – you’ll be giving gifts that truly keep on giving. We’ve got lots of toy ideas on our site, too. And trust us: if the Easter Bunny could carry the IncrediBlock or Smart Touch Play Space down the bunny trail, he would. In fact, don’t be surprised if you see him pushing a Zebra Walker up to your door.
