Easter Basket Basics for Babies/Toddlers

March 17, 2016 in Motherhood, Uncategorized - 3 Comments - 2 min read

If you know me you know I love giving gifts! This may be the reason I love holidays so much, especially with a now baby and toddler. I enjoy giving them things that they will be excited about even if it’s just something basic or even essential! Below are some of my Easter basket basics for babies/toddlers.

First of all, I LOVE shopping small and supporting the handmade businesses of America so I always include something from a small business in all my holiday giving. So, Easter is no exception. I typically pop over to Etsy any chance I get and browse their database of handmade shops. Instagram has a great #handmade community as well and I have been lucky enough to work with a lot of small businesses through that platform. What I love most about shopping small is you can find the most adorable, creative, unique and well made items AND you’re supporting a family that could be down the street from you.

My two year old is obsessed with Daniel Tiger so I do what I normally do and just type in her current obsession into etsy and that’s how I came across the shop Monogram SAHM. She had everything Daniel Tiger and more. I knew Joie needed these Daniel Tiger finger puppets for her Easter basket and they will for sure make her squeal when she sees them. If you have a Daniel Tiger obsessed kid then head over now to Monogram SAHM and shop her adorable collection. These finger puppets are the perfect size and VERY well made! The detail in each character is impeccable. I can’t get over the quality of these puppets and I can not wait to give them to Joie!

This year we will be out of town for Easter so I came up with the genius (lol) idea to do a combined basket for the girls (I know, mean mommy) BUT I think at 11 months and 2 years old I can get away with this. Here is a list, from top left to bottom right, of the rest of the goodies I included for the girls:

  1. Peeps Bubbles– So the adorable look of Peeps minus all the YUCK
  2. Bunny Plate, Cup and Fork/Spoon set- Available at the Target Dollar Spot
  3. Melissa & Doug Slide and Seek Egg– This is reversible and will be super fun for both girls
  4. Happy Clubhouse Easter Book for my Mickey/Minnie fans
  5. Hallmark Itty Bitty’s & Easter cards – more info on these adorable companions HERE
  6. Annies fruit snacks, because I am that mom.
  7. Bunny hair clips– They can wear these year round! Find them HERE. By the wonderful @madi.and.bay on Instagram!

Happy Easter!! Xo Noelle

    • Today we frolicked with the fishies at the aquarium for their school field trip and let’s just say these girls couldn’t be happier! What a special way to kick off the long weekend AND Lo’s birthday 🎉🐠 Seeing them so happy is what I live for! #sistersister #birthdaygirl
    • How can I not feel blessed? Everyone I pass when I’m in public with these 4 blesses me as we pass by 🤣 I’ve had multiple people tell me how calm I seem with them (one of those people asked me if I was on drugs...I can’t make this stuff up!) and they have said that next time they feel stressed they’ll just think of me lol...One of those people was a dad so to his wife, you’re welcome, hopefully he comes home in a better mood 😂 I really should just start writing this stuff down because some of the comments we get are too funny! What is the craziest thing you’ve ever been told when out with your kids!? #momof4 #twinmom
    • Double yap this! Where are my target 🎯 friends at?! Not only is target doing their big toy sale right now but @justplayproducts also has the cutest new #Vamperina toy sets out and these girls certainly approve!! If you have a Vamperina fan you can stock up now while the sale is running!  #ad #justplayproducts #easterbasketstuffers
    • These goofballs performed “Shallow” by @ladygaga & Bradley Cooper in their school talent show last week and I finally got it up on YouTube 👏🏼 🎤 You can find the link in my bio or in my #YouTube highlights! I love watching these girls be so brave and standing in front of a crowd like it’s no big deal. If nothing else these girls are learning confidence and I’m just happy to be their biggest cheerleader 📣 #shallow #talentshow #theyalsosangfrozen #becausetheyreextra 🤣
    • So much thanks to @rutheckerdhall for hosting us today at the Daniel Tiger LIVE ‘King For A Day’ show ✨ Everything was perfect and it’s always a favorite venue of ours to attend. The show was adorable and we had 3 little ones with the biggest smiles on their faces the whole show 🐯 Head over to my stories for more of the fun! Do you like Daniel Tiger?! #hosted #danieltigerlive #rutheckerdhall #kingforaday
    • I’ve never had to be more patient than I have these last couple years building this house. Today was a breath of fresh air and reminded me why we chose the builder we did and why it’s taking as long as it has. He met us here on a Saturday to personally help facilitate the design of our front yard (which includes totally changing our driveway 🤦🏻‍♀️). I hear “change” and I immediately shut down but ultimately he wants this house and the finished product to be just as perfect as we do and that I can respect/appreciate! The house will get done and it will be worth it (I’m telling myself this not you 🤣) I shared a question box in my stories about what you’d all want more of on my feed and house updates were one of them! Here are some from today and I will share more as we finish this project up! The kids LOVED watching the lot get prepped for landscape ☀️ Live action of what they’re looking at is in my stories now!  #buildingcasabryant #newhome #custombuild
