DIY Easter Basket for the Kiddos + Giveaway

Posted on Apr 1 2014 - 11:22am by Aubrey


Last week I started thinking I need to “get on it” in regard to making Easter baskets for my boys. They are still pretty young and can’t really understand the concept of Easter or the bunny, egg hunt, etc…, BUT I need to get in the habit of planning and putting together things like Easter baskets, in advance, or else I’m subjected to what’s left when I make a last minute dash to the store! So, I started thinking about what to put in their “homemade” baskets and it can be a little more challenging when you’re assembling these for infants and toddlers because the typical Easter “fillers” of assorted candy, chocolates and peeps aren’t exactly something I want to give to my babes. Ok, so all that said, I teamed up with GILT to show you some 3 of my favorite picks for baby’s Easter basket!

birdpushtoyBird Push Toy by manny and simon exclusively for Gilt. I love this cute, friendly little eco-friendly bird that any tot would enjoy! Push toys are big for new walkers or “trying to be walkers,” the 100% recycled wood construction is durable and the soft color (made with non-toxic and ultra low odor paint) makes it a perfect addition to any Easter-themed basket. GILT: $32

magentic blocksFour Magnetic Cubes by Tegu. These magnetic blocks come in a fun pastel color palette and are sure to brighten up any basket. I must have a thing for the wooden toys because the set of 4 cubes are made up of FSC-Certified Honduran Hardwoods. A great gift item for any child ages 0 and up, its magic magnets will be sure to attract them to this toy instantly! GILT: $10, Original Retail: $15

fluffy bunny

Fluffy Buffy Bunny by Maileg. And what basket would be completely without a loveable plush toy?? This soft rabbit is adorable with its floppy ears and body. Any child would love to put their arms around this one and give the (Easter) bunny a BIG hug. GILT: $38
