30+ First Easter Basket Ideas for a Baby

Easter is coming right up, so it’s time to get cracking (egg pun intended) if you’re thinking about doing Baby’s First Easter Basket.

Baby’s First Easter Basket Ideas:

I’ve tried to pick things that are relatively inexpensive, small, useful, and have an Easter vibe but can often be used long past the season.

Cuddle + Kind Bunny

Cuddle + Kind makes the most gorgeous stuffed animals and dolls. They are well made and incredibly soft (you can feel the quality when you hold one). In addition to being beautiful, 5-15 meals are provided to children in North America and around the world when you buy one. They sell out VERY quickly, so snap them up when you can. You can check out all the cuteness on their site and on Amazon.

Easter Pajamas

Easter Pajamas

You can never have too many adorable sleepers, and bunnies, ducks, and eggs are kinda universal, so they can wear them past the Easter season. Hanna Andersson makes gorgeous ones but also check out Carter’s and Old Navy for some equally cute styles.

haba musical shaker eggs made from wood. Five different colors.

Haba Musical Eggs

Each of these wooden eggs makes a different sound and are perfectly sized for little hands. Four eggs shake (2 rattle, 1 chirps, 1 jingles) and the light blue egg twists to make a clicking noise. They are made of beech wood from sustainable forestry in Germany using 100% non-toxic stains. You can find them on the HABA site, on Amazon and at Target.

Bunny Meadow Loulou Lollipop swaddle

Bunny Meadow Loulou Lollipop

Loulou Lollipop has this gorgeous Bunny Meadow pattern in swaddles, towels, facecloths, and bibs. I love that the single swaddle comes rolled, making it perfect to tuck in an easter basket. If you are looking for something a little more Spring or less soft pink, check out Adventure Begins or Woodland Gnome. (You can also find them on Amazon and at Target.)

baby drinking out of an ezpz tiny cup

ezpz Tiny Cup

ezpz has a whole line of high quality, food-grade silicone feeding products that were developed with the help of a Pediatric Feeding Specialist.

The Tiny Cup can be used from 4+ months and has a weighted base and tactile bumps that provide topple resistance. If you’re shopping for an older child, check out the Mini Cup + Straw. You can find it on the ezpz site. (You can also find them on Amazon and at Target.)

ezpz tiny spoon

ezpz Tiny Spoons

The Tiny Spoons from ezpz have sensory bumps on the spoon bowl that activate sensory awareness to decrease gagging and choking. You can find them all on the ezpz site. (You can also find them on Amazon and at Target.)

babiators sunglasses


I don’t think there is anything cuter than a baby wearing sunglasses. Cuteness aside, sunglasses help protect fresh little eyes so you want to make sure they have UVA & UVB protection. I love Babiators because they are well made, come in a ton of styles and are very durable. You can find them on the Babiators site, Amazon and at Target.

hip hop baby onesie with carrot next to it

Hip Hop Onesie

Here’s a hopping graphic onesie idea for baby from Etsy. There are a handful of designs from different sellers that will speak to just about anyone’s inner ’90s hip hop fiend. You can check them all out on Etsy.

three silicone bath toys

Bath Toy Set

These sweet bath toys from Loulou Lollipop open up so gross stuff won’t grow in them. They are the perfect size for small hands to grip and spray. You can find them on the Loulou Lollipop site and on Amazon.

fridababy toothbrush

Fridababy Toothbrush

I fully recognize that this little toothbrush isn’t a bunny or anything but I thought it had a bit of an egg vibe. The SmileFrida Finger Brush tackles top and bottom at the same time. Plus, a gentle massage with the Finger Brush can go a long way in alleviating teething woes. You can find it on Amazon and Target.

wooden toy eggs

Wooden Play Eggs

This game set includes five wooden eggs and five wooden egg cups to help promote hand-eye coordination. They come in a nice, long package that will sit nicely in an Easter basket too. You can find them at Target.

It’s free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, lead, and cadmium and they also make other animals like alligators, elephants, giraffes, llamas, lions and rhinos. You can find it on the Loulou Lollipop site and on Amazon.

These Loulou Lollipop bunny links are ideal for attaching toys and teethers to the stroller, play gym, carrier, or car seat helping keep baby’s favorite toys off the floor while providing hours of entertainment. It comes in a pack of five in an adorable bunny shape which is perfect to tuck in an Easter basket. You can find them on the Loulou Lollipop site

Stuffed yellow baby Chick

How sweet is this little puff?! This sweet chick is only 5″ tall so its easy for little hands to hold and cuddle. You can find it on Amazon and Target.

This sweet bunny has a velcro hand to hold a favorite pacifier or teether. You could even pair it with the carrot teether! You can pick it up on Amazon.

Note: skip sleeping with this bunny when it comes to young babies who don’t roll.

Hide & Squeak Easter Eggs

Hide N Squeak Eggs

This timeless toy contains six eggs that crack open to reveal colored chicks that chirp gently when their heads are pressed down. Each little egg has a shape on the bottom that fits into its unique base in the egg box. You can find them on Amazon and Target.

personalized bunny book

Personalized Board Book

Little readers will enjoy following the Snuggle Bunny putting away toys, brushing teeth, and sharing lots of snuggles before settling down to close their eyes. I found this one at Pottery Barn Kids.

Portable Sound Machine

Portable Sound Machine

Okay, so this sound machine isn’t exactly an egg, but I thought it had an Easter vibe. The little speaker has 4 relaxing sound options – Heartbeat, White Noise, Ocean, or Lullaby – and easily fits in diaper bags and luggage. You can find it on Amazon.

rainbow stacking cups

Stacking Cups

These silicone stacking cups come in two color sets and can be used for playtime or bathtime. They are softer than your regular stacking cups so they stack better and aren’t as loud (or frustrating) when they tumble. You can find them on Loulou Lollipop site.

pacifier holder

Binky Clips

Copper Pearl makes these adorable Binky Clips in sets of three. They feature a premium knit strap lined with absorbent fleece to help soak up drool and attach to a baby’s pacifier or teether at one end, then fasten the clip to clothing, blankets or baby gear on the other. The set here is called Leilani on the Copper Pearl site, but Amazon also carries other patterns.

Snap and Go Pods

These Snap and Go pods are great for snacks, formula storage, baby food and more. They are made by Melii (they make my favorite snackle box) and come in a BPA-free plastic version and a silicone version and a silicone version.

bunny crib shoes

Style your little Easter Egg in some fresh bunny shoes. There are tons of beautiful ones on the Etsy site.

baby in a knitted bunny hat

Knitted Bunny Hat

What’s an Easter photo without them? We found these from Marys Knits on Etsy.

copperpearl baby chick bib

Baby Bandana Drool Bib

Copper Pearl makes gorgeous bibs. I like that they are seasonal without being too on the nose so it doesn’t feel weird like when you are using a “My First Christmas” bib in July. I know it doesn’t matter but, you know, the little things. You can find this “Peter” set on Amazon and the Copper Pearl site. (Target also carries them but I couldn’t find this exact pattern.)

custom easter baskets

Custom Easter basket

I love these because they aren’t too ‘babyish’, so they can use them for many years to come. Pottery Barn has a beautiful assortment of designs and sizes. You can shop them all here on Pottery Barn Kids.

If you want to skip the Easter Basket and go with something more substantial, this little wooden wagon comes with a removable cardboard crate and plush toys. You can find it on Amazon.

four easter board books

Some of these are specific to Easter and some just have bunnies and ducks, but ALL of them are good. Also, check out the full list of Easter Board books. I spent a full afternoon narrowing down the pile to my top 21 picks. Here are four of them:

  1. I Am a Bunny (This is the BEST book) Amazon | Target

  3. Peter Rabbit Little Library Amazon
