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.

A few great resources for Easter basket stuffers...
  • Dollar Store - There are lots of Easter-themed ideas there right now!
  • Target Dollar Bin - Same great deals as the dollar store.  Once again, lots of spring and Easter-themed options.
  • Ebates - Gives cash back when shopping online by clicking through their site. I use this every time I shop online!
  • TopCashBack and FatWallet- These are both the same idea as through their site and get cash back on your purchase.  Worth comparing to make sure you're getting the highest cash back!
  • ShopAtHome - Same idea as Ebates...sometimes they'll have higher cash back and/or stores that Ebates doesn't!
  • Etsy
  • Amazon - Usually the cheapest I can find smaller toys/items online.  Free shipping when you get to $35 too!
  • Zulily
(Of course, you are the judge of whether or not your baby is ready for any of these products.  Please ensure toys are recommended for babies that fall in your child's age range before purchase.  And as always, supervise your children while using these products!)
