How to Create Adorable Easter Baskets
Easter is one of my favorite holidays of the year. In my family I’m known for creating beautiful Easter baskets. Today I’m sharing my secrets for selecting the best Easter gifts for babies, toddlers, and children. In this post I’ll show step by step how to create adorable Easter baskets your kiddos will love!
When preparing an Easter basket filled with beautiful gifts, select a basket that’s large and wide and won’t easily tip over once it’s filled with Easter goodies. The very best Easter baskets are personalized and designed with care. I found great joy in the process of shopping in unique local shops and teachers’ supply stores to hand-select special Easter basket gifts. When Easter baskets are prepared with love, your children appreciate your thoughtfulness. These glorious baskets become a time-honored tradition that kiddos look forward to with happiness and anticipation.

Easter Basket Ideas | Purchase Quality Easter Baskets
For Easter my children would have a lovely extra-large wicker basket (like the one above) filled with numerous Easter goodies. They’d also have another Easter basket to use for Easter egg hunting. The darling Easter totes above are absolutely perfect for toddlers. They’re very light-weight and easy for tiny ones to handle. From experience, a regular wicker Easter basket is bulky and clumsy for little hands. It’s disappointing when the child bends over and all of the Easter eggs they’ve collected go tumbling out! When your children are toddlers, I highly recommend investing in a set of beautiful, good-quality Easter baskets that can be used over and over again.
Easter Basket Ideas | Select Easter Basket Grass
Select beautiful crinkled paper to line the bottom of your child’s Easter basket. Add enough to give the basket beautiful volume. Choose green crinkle paper for a fabulous green-grass look, or a sweet bubblegum color for girls. You can vary the color each Easter season.
Easter Basket Ideas | Beautiful Easter Bunny Centerpiece
When creating Easter baskets for children, I recommend including a beautiful, soft Easter bunny. Use it as the centerpiece item in the Easter basket. For siblings select a different Easter bunny for each child to enjoy.
Easter Basket Ideas | Adorable Easter Gifts for Babies
Easter basket items for babies are the most versatile of all! Easter is the perfect opportunity to grow your child’s library with beautiful new books. You can also include some sweet baby items that your bundle of joy can use right now. Adorable Easter gifts for babies include an activity ring, a sweet bunny toy that doubles as a security blanket, a bunny bottle holder, and a teething necklace.

Easter Basket Ideas | Easter Gifts Children Will Love
When creating an Easter basket for children, select engaging toys that provide excellent opportunities for imaginative play. I highly recommend that each child’s Easter basket include a beloved children’s book as well as high-quality toys that will provide hours of enjoyment all year long. Search for an award-winning toy (like a Brain Toy Award Winner) as well as a vintage toy (like Spirograph) that will connect the generations through beautiful shared memories of childhood play. When raising successful children look for creative ways to provide them with beautiful learning tools disguised as unique toys, books and crafts.
Easter Basket Ideas | Traditional Easter Chocolate + Treats
The above high-quality chocolates and Easter Peeps are traditional favorites for children’s Easter baskets. (They’re also perfect candy selections for small Easter baskets for grandparents, neighbors and friends.) Within each child’s Easter basket intersperse these sweet chocolate candies among the darling toys and the Easter bunny.
Easter Basket Ideas | Cellophane Wrap + Bow
It’s now time to wrap up your Easter baskets filled with goodies! Use clear or lightly-tinted cellophane wrap and enclose your beautiful creations with lovely ribbon. If the Easter baskets are a gift from the Easter bunny, find a great hiding spot for it until Easter morning! The tradition we developed in my household was an Easter bunny delivery of custom baskets bright and early on Easter morning. My children would joyfully open up their beautiful Easter baskets as soon as they awoke in the morning. As my daughters they played with their new toys, I would start prepping a variety of delicious breakfast entrees in anticipation of our annual multi-family Easter brunch.
