Easter Basket Goodies for Your Little Bunny

My little one (Savannah Leigh) is only seven months old, so I am pretty sure she is going to have absolutely no clue what is going on come Easter Sunday morning. No need for Easter egg hunts or the dyeing of the eggs this year…she will be perfectly happy to receive a plastic egg or two to play with (and inevitably shove into her little teething mouth). Besides, I already got her and her daddy a new Kindle fire to share (we aren’t so good with the element of surprise when it comes to gifting). Next year will be a different story entirely…I fully intend to go a little crazy and spoil Baby S rotten, but for now I will just have to be content to dream and scheme, and of course share my fabulous ideas with all of you.

A Few of My Favorite (Easter) Things

1. First things first, a basket is a MUST. If you already have something you love that is perfectly acceptable, but if I were in the basket buying market I would probably choose the following. (And at these prices you can always stock up for next year!)

For her: Pink Striped Basket Liner (small) from www.potterybarnkids.com, currently on sale for $8.99 (and you can add a monogram or other personalization for just $7 more)! And don’t forget your (small) Sabrina Easter Basket available in white or pink, starting at $18.99 (also on sale). So sweet, just like your little bunny babe! I know what Savannah is getting next year…

For him: Red and Navy Kingston Plaid Basket Liner (small) from www.potterybarnkids.com, currently on sale for $10.99 (add a monogram for $7). I would choose the (small) Sabrina Easter Basket in white for $19.99 to go with it. Too preppy and adorable for words!

One more fun idea: The Green Sherpa Bunny Treat Bag from www.potterybarnkids.com, currently on sale for $17.99. Cute for little boys and little girls—who wouldn’t love this sweet little bunny basket?

2. New clothes and accessories are an easy and excellent gift of choice at this age (they grow so fast they are always in need of something).Here are a few of my favorite Easter themed online finds!

3. With summer so close, beach and poolside inspired items also make great gift ideas—and can look oh so adorable arranged in an Easter basket! You just have to check out these super cute swimsuits and shades…I wish they came in my size!

4. Lastly, you can never go wrong with the old standby: books and toys. If your child is done with the crawl into a box and crinkle paper for hours phase, you may want to check out these delightfully Easter themed ideas! I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough stuff on hand to entertain my little one…
