Easter: Ideas For Baby's
First Easter Basket
Creating an Easter basket for your baby is the perfect way to introduce your new addition to a family-favorite holiday. Your little bundle of joy probably won't remember receiving their gifts, but they'll definitely light up when they find a new toy or steal the spotlight sporting a brand new Easter outfit. Assemble your basket with a few of these fun ideas.
It's pretty hard to imagine an Easter basket without candy, but it's way too soon to introduce your child to sweet treats. You can still give them something to chew on with a new pacifier or teething toy, the plus side being that they can keep using anything you give them long after the holiday is over to help relieve gum and tooth pain.
With all the photos you'll likely take to document your baby's new milestone, dressing your newborn up in an adorable Easter-themed outfit is a must. Add clothing and accessories to your basket to fill out the design, then do a quick wardrobe change before your photo shoot. For parents looking for even more practicality, a cozy hat, mittens or mini jacket will help get them through the last few weeks of cold weather.
Festive And Functional
Whether your basket is simple or extravagant, it can also be an easy excuse to stock up on a few important items your baby will need in the immediate future. Practical items like bibs, burp cloths, baby bottles, and blankets can be found in the traditional Easter colors and themes, and they will look nice bundled up in your basket design.
Presenting The Presents
The only thing more fun than picking out what to put in your baby's Easter basket is designing the basket itself. Give all your gifts a proper Easter nest with a classic wicker basket, and soften the interior or exterior with a festive fabric liner. You can also get creative by using a larger toy's unique shape as a carrier, paint a plastic bucket with personalized details or add classic accents like pastel ribbons or bunny ears.
A brand new toy is an easy way to put a smile on your little one's face. There are plenty of fun, Easter-themed toys to keep them entertained all day. Pique their interest with a soft and cuddly stuffed animal friend, add a colorful set of blocks for hours of stacking, and round out the excitement with a cute bath time set. As a bonus, discovery toys will give them a jumpstart on learning essential development skills.
Assembling your Easter basket is an adorable way to introduce your baby to the holiday. Fill your basket with fun toys, practical items or a little bit of both to make sure your little one gets plenty of things they'll want or need. The Lakeside Collection is a great place to start looking for Easter basket gifts from discount books to comfortable baby clothing.
