101 Ideas for Baby's First Easter Basket

Around Christmas, I did a post about stocking stuffers for baby's first year. I had so much fun doing it! Since it's almost Easter, I thought I'd revamp it a little into 101 ideas for Baby's First Easter Basket!

I'm going to be honest here - last Easter, I was in survival mode. Emma Ramey wasn't quite 2 weeks old yet, and I was lucky to get a few hours' sleep, much less put together an Easter basket.  So, I threw together a few fillers we hadn't opened yet that I had previously ordered and called it a basket.  Sad, I know.  So I've vowed to actually plan a good one this year!
Here are the ideas I've had for an Easter basket for a baby from newborn-1 year.  I'm counting this as Emma Ramey's first basket because last year's was so terrible. :)
101 ideas for baby's first Easter basket. These ideas range from ideas for newborn babies to early toddlers, and there are ideas for both boys and girls.
