Easter Basket Ideas

As is tradition on every celebratory holiday. I have made Rosalie an Easter basket. I love looking at what other mama’s have put into their Easter basket as it gives me inspiration of what to put in Rosalie’s. I bought most of these things from pound land so it was super ‘cheep’ (get it?!)  but I know Rosalie will love rooting through to see what goodies the Easter bunny has brought her on Easter morning.
Bunny Ears
I can’t wait to see Rosalie in these. I will have my own little bunny hoping around on Easter morning. These ears were from pound land.
Soft toy
No Easter basket would be complete without a cuddly toy. Rosalie has a lamb already and numerous bunnies so I though this little duckling would be cute and not something that she has already.
Easter bucket
I bought this for Rosalie to collect her eggs on our easter morning egg hunt. It’s more robust than most and so perfect for a toddler.
Lamb Chocolates
I picked these cute little chocolates up in TK Maxx at the weekend. A completely unnecessary purchase but I fell for the cute packaging.
This pack of dainty little bows is from pound land, for a pound who could resist? I liked that the bows were nice and small, so won’t look silly on my girl with not much hair!

I wanted to get Rosalie at least one Easter egg for her hamper. I know everyone will buy her an egg so we will have lots of chocolate so I didn’t want to go overboard. This Peppa pig egg is from pound land. Rosalie spied it as we walked around the shop, she kept pointing to it and shouting ‘Pepa’ so I had to get it.
I want to start building up Rosalie’s collection of seasonal books. She has one Easter book all ready. This book was from pound land and whilst not strictly about Easter, it is the story of a duckling so loosely counts as Easter themed, right?!
I picked up this two pack of pyjamas in NEXT and they were £17 as I bought them in size 2 – 3 years. I thought they would be nice for holiday if they are a little loose. I just hope they don’t fall down!

Egg Cup
I picked up this super cute little egg cup from Sainsburys. How lovely is it? I think it’s nice to give non chocolate Easter gifts especially ones that are useful. I think we might have to have boily egg for breakfast on Easter morning now.
Rabbit mug
This rabbit mug with marshmallows is also from Sainsbury’s. It’s made of glass but has a sturdy lid and straw. It’s still quite cold at the moment so I thought this would be fabulous for Rosalie to have a warm hot chocolate in after our egg hunt on Easter Sunday.
So that’s all the goodies in Rosalie’s Easter basket. If you’d like to see more of the items I picked up there is a video of Children’s Easter Basket Ideas over on my YouTube channel.
Will you be making an Easter basket this year? What will you be putting in your little ones Easter basket?

    I've never celebrated Easter before as we're not religious, but seeing everyone's Easter baskets is so lovely I'm tempted! I think we are doing an Easter egg hunt in the garden this year – I love the little basket you've included here!
