Looking for Easter basket ideas for your baby? Grab these Easter gift ideas to stick in your baby’s Easter basket! 25 adorable ideas for your baby’s first Easter!
Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course I love Christmas, but there’s just something about a Spring holiday. It’s always so much fun to dye eggs, go on Easter egg hunts, and look through an easter basket filled with goodies!
Evelyn was about 10 months old for her very first Easter. I loved that age, because she was starting to become really fun and interactive! It was a really fun stage—she was still a little baby but with so much personality and not too much toddler sass!
Since I love all things Easter, of course I was excited to put together her first Easter basket. I wanted to get things she would love as well as useful things for me/her. I hate having useless junk so I made sure to only put items in her basket that we would actually use.

Once your baby gets a little older you can introduce them to a lovey. This rainbow lovey is the sweetest and will be the perfect gift in baby’s Easter basket. Plus it looks super soft!

If you want something a little more girly, this Easter headband is perfect! Delicate enough to match any Easter outfit that mom (or grandma) already picked out!
17. Teething Mitt
I cannot thank the inventor of this teething mitt enough. My daughter would constantly drop her teething toys and get so frustrated, When we put this teething mitt on her, she went to town! This was truly one of the best baby purchases I ever made and would be a great addition to baby’s Easter basket.
This simple ball is an amazing toy for baby! It’s easy for them to grasp and a flexible material that they can play with. The rattle inside helps them begin to learn cause and effect and introduces them to music!

Is it just me, or do you always need more bibs? I love the different fun patterns on these and the fact that they are easy to wipe. These fit babies 3 months to 9 months, so you’ll get a lot of use out of them!
22. Duck Wubbanub
Our beloved Wubbanub was another thing we never had enough of. I carried one with me wherever we went in case my girl needed a nap on the go. I loved choosing different animals for her. The baby duck is too perfect for an Easter basket.
