Spring is hopping along, and Easter is almost here! We love seeing all the traditions celebrated in our community, from visits to the Easter Bunny and hunting for eggs to brunch with the ones you love. And, of course, building the perfect basket to delight your little ones on Easter morning.
Easter baskets can be much more than just chocolate bunnies and candies! So, we’ve put together our favorite tips on how to build an Easter basket your child will adore. No sugar rush included.
Find a cute basket
There’s no Easter Basket without an actual basket! But there’s room to think outside the box, too. Here are a few routes you can take when it comes to finding the perfect vessel for your little bunnies.
Get personal! Make your child’s Easter Basket a keepsake that they can again with a personalized basket with their name embroidered or screen printed on.
Stay on theme. If you’re creating a basket with a theme, start with the basket. For example, a toy dump truck makes a great “basket” (and would go great with our Construction print!).
Use it again! Instead of opting for a basket covered in bunnies, go for something more evergreen that you can reuse after the holiday has passed. Simple wicker baskets or tote bags make great reusable options.
Make it cozy
Once you’ve selected your basket, it’s time to make it cozy! Fill it with all your favorite Little Sleepies essentials like Cloud Blankets, Sleepyhead Lovies, and a new pair (or two) of pajamas. Our Easter Collection features the cutest Little Chicks and sweet bunny farmers in Hop To It. Make their day even sweeter by getting a matching pair of jammies for yourself, and enjoy their reaction when they realize you’re matching!
Fill it with essentials for Spring.
Springtime is here, so prepare your little chickadees with practical essentials they’ll love. With warmer weather comes sun & heat. Keep them hydrated with a brand-new water bottle or sippy cup (we love this one), or add some sunscreen to fend off the sun!
Fill it with nutritional treats.
Gone are the days of chocolate being the only option for your sweet bunny’s Easter Basket. With Once Upon A Farm’s delicious pouches, they can enjoy a treat that’s good for them too! Don’t forget to add a pouch cooler that matches our Little Sleepies x Once Upon a Farm collection.
And something to read
When it comes to gifts for our kids, books are always on the top of our list. One of our favorite book sets comes from our friends at Slumberkins. Their creature characters are featured in their books and teach your little ones through emotional education.
