7 Easter Basket Ideas Your Toddler (Girl) Will Love


7 Easter Basket Ideas Your Toddler (Girl) Will Love

Easter isn’t a “large” gift-giving holiday in many households. It isn’t in ours; and I could not agree with this more. But I do enjoy surprising my girls with a pretty basket, stuffed full of even prettier goodies on Easter morning. (Who doesn’t?) We try to keep things reasonable. Christmas and birthdays are when we go big. Here are a few fun items I found for this year’s baskets!


“I Love Ruffles” one piece swimsuit from Kimi and Li Bikini

Available from shop.kimiandlibikini.com. ($59)


This bathing suit is so adorable, I just can’t even. And my Savannah really needs a new one. (She’s growing like a weed!) I think it’s really fun to include practical (yet whimsical) items for spring and summer in an Easter basket. How many little trinkets (and candy) do they really need at this age? Plus, I know she will love it and get some major use out of it, before passing it down to her two little sisters. We do live in Texas.

Beatrix New York Little Kid Pack, Pocchari Pink

Available from www.amazon.com. ($41.99)

Another practical (yet whimsical) find! My littles could really use new backpacks for preschool (and dance and tennis) next year, and I like to try and save major purchases like these for special occasions. Bonus: these backpacks really hold up to daily wear and tear. And come on, how cute is that puppy?

Jellycat Bashful Mint Bunny (Large)

Available from www.nordstrom.com. ($22.50)


We are big time Jellycat fans. We love their board books, their super-soft stuffed friends, and especially their beautiful bunnies for Easter. (You can even get them monogrammed!) We got one for our girls last year (bright pink), and I am thinking this mint-colored bunny might be a nice addition to our growing collection. Let’s just say my girls are obsessed, and mama is, too.


Bunny Ears Headband

Available from www.anthropologie.com. ($24)


Well this one’s a no-brainer. So perfect for Easter!

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Available from www.anthropologie.com. ($30)


Even though my girls are technically a little young for this copy of Alice (two and three), I really can’t help myself. My love for classic children’s literature combined with my love for anything from Rifle Paper Co. will not be denied. (I plan to purchase every book in this reimagined series for my girls.) Besides, it just looks like Easter, doesn’t it?

“Decadent Cakewalk Dress” from Matilda Jane Clothing

Available from www.matildajaneclothing.com. ($58)


I am slightly obsessed with Matilda Jane. And I am very obsessed with this ridiculously sweet dress. My daughter will either wear this dress on Easter (highly likely), or it will be in her Easter basket — alongside a few more goodies from this current collection. Don’t even get me started on the matching hair bow. Hashtag, I’m in too deep.

What are you planning to surprise your cuties with this Easter? Happy shopping, Mommy Chicks!
