Easter Basket ideas for babies and toddlers that aren't candy! Fun ideas for Easter for that are practical and inexpensive.

I love holidays but Easter has proved tricky for little ones! They can’t really eat candy yet. I also don’t want Easter to rival Christmas in our house- we celebrate from a religious standpoint and I don’t want gifts to over shadow what we feel is most important. I also don’t want to spend a small fortune.

When it comes to Easter Baskets I’ve kept it simple. I focus on things they need along with some fun outside items since the weather starts to get nicer.

We didn’t do all of these things but I feel like any combination from this list would be great!


    • New bathing suit – I liked the zip up  Hanna Anderssonones for my babies.
    • New sun hat

  • teething toys- I was always losing these so replacement were a good idea!


    •  Toothpaste and toothbrush. I actually got a great deal after Christmas on a Lightning McQueen set for my toddler. I figure if they are going to get candy they will need to brush!
    • New bathing suit- just in time for summer!
    • New sun hat- for all that swimming and gardening fun!

    • Bubbles and/or bubble machine

    • Schleich animals and dinosaurs – these can  be pricey so I keep a lookout for good prices and buy ahead when I catch a deal

  • DVDs
  • seeds and gardening shovel/gloves- I LOVE this set from Green Toys! It’s made out of 100% recycled milk jugs in the USA.

    I’m curious to hear what everyone else does for little ones that can’t have candy yet. Let me know in the comments!
