7 Cute Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Toddlers

Easter is right around the corner, and if you have any little ones running around, you know how exciting it can be to play Easter Bunny. Part of the fun of Easter is shopping for the perfect basket fillers and arranging them to look as appealing as possible, and an even bigger part of the fun is watching your toddler wake up to discover that colorful collection of treats. This Easter, create your toddler’s dream Easter basket by thinking ahead. Here are seven cute Easter basket gift ideas for toddlers:

Choosing a basket. The Easter basket, itself, can be a gift in its own right. Consider a baby doll buggy or plastic tea pitcher for girls, or the back of a dump truck for boys.

Themed baskets. Chances are your toddler has a favorite cartoon, movie, or character. One fun way to create an Easter basket that is sure to be appreciated is by choosing a theme and decking the basket out in everything you can find in that theme. For example, girls may prefer dolls and boys may prefer Sesame Street characters.

An Easter bunny. One gift you can give this Easter that will keep on giving is the gift of loving and learning to care for a pet. Give your toddlers a bunny wrapped in a bow and watch them squeal with delight. Just make sure you are prepared to care for the bunny once Easter is over.

Candy. When it comes to candy for toddlers, a little will go a long way. Therefore, it’s best to focus on one or two major buys. Peeps and oversized chocolate bunnies are Easter classics that will provide you with plenty of cute (and messy) photo opportunities.

Plastic eggs. Toddlers love to open plastic eggs to find what’s inside. Fill them plastic eggs anything your toddler might like, and then use them for an Easter egg hunt later in the day.

Craft items. Toddlers love to get their hands dirty, but we don’t like to let them do it too often. Easter is a special day, and a great time to give your toddlers some finger paints, sidewalk chalk, or giant markers and let them go to town.
