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

    • I’m going to say it...you’re prob already singing it...baaaaaabbbbyyyy shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo 😂🦈 #ad These girls’ eyes lit up when they saw the brand new Kellogg’s Baby Shark 2-pack cereal which is available starting on August 17th from your local @SamsClub or from Samsclub.com and believe me, it’s BERRY FIN-tastic 😋 We celebrated the start of the school year with this sweet treat for an easy breakfast treat and the girls have been asking for more ever since! Make sure you head to Sam’s Club to get yours! #BabySharkatSamsClub
    • I’ve pictured these 4 splashing around and playing in this bath for over a year and half and seeing them doing it makes me so happy. Happy to be home 🏡❤️ #mytribe
    • And that’s a wrap on filming day 1 🎥 I can’t wait to show you all this fun project we’ve been working on! Stay tuned for some fun KIDspiration filled bedroom transformations for the kid spaces in our new home! #ohhappyplay #roomreveal
    • Today is your day, you’re off and away! Happy first (half) day of Kindergarten to this girl 🎉 SWIPE to see her adorable backpack and lunch box by @twelvelittle 😱🥰 Obligatory first day of school sign photo to come when I can find the box it’s packed in 🤣 #movingprobs // Also, how many times do we all think I’ll cry today (little known fact- I’m born in a family of criers haha!) Also another hint, I may have already cried once and it’s 8am 🤷🏻‍♀️ What’s your over-under 😂 #firstdayofkindergarten #firstdayofschool #todayisyourday
    • Tomorrow my first born is off to kindergarten and it’s hitting me in the feels! Her first official full day isn’t until next week but tomorrow is still the start of her next chapter and I’m excited for her to start it off with a mini celebration in the morning 🎉 Oh the places you’ll go, Joie! As always I’m so excited to be here to cheer her along 💕 #thenightbeforekindergarten #ohtheplacesyoullgo #kindergartenbound
    • With all our moving craziness I forgot to share these super cool  @mybtoys Hound Dog Storage Ride-On’s (which we used for the boys’ luggage on our trip last week!) It was so perfect to carry their clothes/essentials and also acted as a toy ride-on for them while we traveled. I can’t say enough good and FUN things about these! I’ll post a link to them in my stories and save it on my highlights as well! #sponsored #travelkids
