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

    • February is the month of LOVE and we intend to spread it multiple ways in our household. Especially given the chaos of our impending move! So, I have taken the time to set up these adorable Boys Town Praise Boxes with the girls which get hung on the their doors as a place for us to send them special notes, words of affirmation and praise for a job well done! So far it has been fun for all of us and here is just a snippet of that happiness these bring! Check out how to get yours over at @BoysTownVillage ♥️♥️ #BoysTownPositivePraise #BoysTownPraiseBox #BoysTownParenting #PraiseItOn
    • It’s safe to say these @shapemags are the girls’ current favorite quiet time activity and they’ve already clocked HOURS playing with them. Yes, I’m amazed myself! I’m talking about how to establish a quiet time routine that works for your preschooler who may have recently dropped their afternoon nap so head over #ontheblog for all the details 💤 Also, I’m throwing up a super fun time lapse of one of Joie’s creations on my insta stories now because I love me a good time lapse video 🤣 #ad #shapemags #linkinbio

    • Small, smart and handsome 🌹 They like long romantic walks around the neighborhood, veggie straws off the floor and they only have eyes for their mama♥️ Also, you have to swipe for these hams 😍 #mylittlevalentines
    • Since our home is about to be entirely boxed up for a few weeks I figured it would be fun to let the girls pick out a toy for them to keep out and bring to their Mimi & Pops house while we are staying there. (AD) They both took right to the end cap featuring these adorable Flutter Friends Hummingbirds from @justplayproducts 💕 These adorable #FlutterFriends are interactive and can perch on your finger or the branch it comes with! Also, these are way better than having an actual pet bird so there’s that 🤣 #moving #targetfinds
