There’s so much magic in celebrating Easter. From egg hunts to photos with the Easter bunny, it’s one of the most memorable spring holidays. As you’re brainstorming how to make the day special for your little one, you might find yourself wondering how to put together an Easter basket that’s both safe and fun. Once you have a basket to fill, here are eight exciting and age-appropriate items to fill it with if you have a child between the ages of 0-18 months.


A Bunny Rattle

Rattles are great for both entertaining your little one and soothing them when it’s time for sleep. Add a rattle to their Easter basket that’s in the shape of a bunny. While the big kids are off on an Easter egg hunt, you can create fun games for the baby and the bunny rattle.

A Mini Plush Toy

A great item for your baby’s first Easter basket is a huggable plush toy. Find one that’s themed for the holiday, whether it’s in the shape of a bunny or an egg. Pick one that’s ultra soft and washable, so your baby can take it everywhere with them and you won’t have to worry about it getting too dirty.

A Spring-Themed Book

Inspire your baby to love reading from an early age by adding a spring-themed book to their Easter basket. Grab a book that’s also a sensory experience, whether it has pop-up elements or different types of materials to touch inside of the book.

A Teether

Have a teething baby who could use a little relief? Pop a teething toy into their Easter basket. Go with one that has built-in handles so your little one can easily grab it, and opt for one that is lined with different textures.

Sunglasses for Spring

Easter gives us all an early taste of the spring season. A functional gift for your little one is a pair of sunglasses that they can wear during Easter egg hunts and as the sunny season approaches. Find a pair that comes with UV protection so their eyes will be properly shielded.

A Plush Easter Basket

A great way to teach your baby about easter, and the fun that’s to come, is by giving them their own plush easter basket. Pick one that comes with a handful of plush toys that they can play with and let your child practice taking them of the basket on their own.

A Duck Water Toy for Bath Time

Eager to make bath time more of a fun treat? Add a duck-themed bath toy into your baby’s easter basket. Grab one that allows water to fill up and drain for added excitement and entertainment.

Wooden Egg Music Shakers

Small wooden egg shakers make for fun toys that your baby will be excited to grab onto. Choose a few in different patterns and colors. As your baby gently shakes them, they will hear fun little noises that will make them feel like they are creating music straight from their hands.
