I've always loved celebrating and decorating for holidays. It's even more fun now that I have little people to celebrate with! Sloan got her love of holidays from her mama and seeing her excitement makes all of the extra planning and effort worth it.
I tend to go way overboard on the girls Easter baskets. Having a little mini Christmas in the spring is fun, but if I'm being totally honest... it's a little excessive. I decided to scale back this year and give the girls each a small basket of goodies. Their baskets will contain items that are useful and things that I would have probably bought anyways (no candy or random bunny figurines this year!). They are each getting a few things for spring and our upcoming Disneyland trip. These ideas are all great for boys and girls, I hope that you find something for your little one!
I know that using a wire basket is the trendy "Easter basket" right now. I think that idea is SO darling, but there is something so nostalgic to me about using a good old fashioned easter basket! My girls have wicker baskets with a handle like I had when I was little. I also love this little bunny basket (blue basket/pink basket), it would be perfect to fill with your child's Easter goodies and then use again as their egg collecting basket at an Easter egg hunt.
No Easter basket is complete without a fuzzy bunny rabbit! We absolutely love the monogrammed jellycat bunnies from Peekawhoo! All three of my babes have one and I know they are something we'll keep forever. You can save 20% off monogrammed bunnies at Peekawhoo with code BABYBOYBROWN20 (through March 31st!). Another must have Easter basket item is bunny ears, I love the ones from Little Blue Olive!
My girls love books, which makes my former teacher heart so happy. I love buying them new books and growing our collection. This year I bought Sloan, Breeds (girlfriend is obsessed with dogs!) and Princess Easter. I bought Phayre, Bunny Roo I love you and Happy Easter, Pout Pout Fish (P is obsessed with the Pout Pout books, I highly recommend these board books for your little one!).
The girls also love arts and crafts so I bought them some fun chunky toddler crayons, chalk, and bubbles wands. I also got them their favorite bath dropz (they change the color of the bath water) and some new bubble bath.
Sticking with the (mostly) practical theme, I got the girls some new sippy cups. I love the Replay sippy cups, they never ever leak! Summer is coming so I'm also going to include some sandals and short sleeve jammies. I love Saltwater sandals and the new rose gold ones are the cutest ever!! I think I need them in my size. I also love these popsicle jammies for girls and these blue dinosaur jammies for boys.
Last, but certainly not least: I love the knee highs from June and January! The girls are getting dot leos and knee highs in their Easter baskets and they'll wear them while we're in Disneyland next month! Major bonus, knee highs are on sale right now!
Happy spring guys, have fun putting your littles baskets together!
