There is nothing better than celebrating any holiday for the first time with your baby! As parents, we go all out and out of our way to make these first holiday memories as special and significant as we can.

Easter is one of those holidays that is so much more fun when the kids are involved in every aspect of celebrating it.

In this cheerful and helpful buying guide, I’ll help you lovingly craft the perfect Easter basket for your baby.

 Gifts to get Baby for Their First Easter

There’s no need to over think an Easter basket for a one year old. After all, they typically tend to enjoy the package the gift came in more than the gift itself!

We all know that the tradition of the Easter basket is more for the parents at this stage than it is for our toddlers. However, there is nothing wrong with establishing traditions at an early age.

I’m going to keep this list below of Easter basket ideas to items you can easily find at Target or on Amazon. That way you can hop over there online right after this and fill your baby’s Easter basket without them even knowing!

Baby’s First Easter Basket

Anything personalized is a special way to make your baby’s first holiday extra memorable. Check out this adorable plush basket at Amazon!
