This past week I got myself ready for Easter – I not only planned the food, but I put together Easter baskets for my son and my nieces and nephews. Every year I make sure to stop by the buybuyBABY Whitby store to put my baskets together because they have so many great books, toys and other fun items to add to my baskets.
I know that some people like to stick to putting together Easter Baskets while others give one gift for Easter, so I am sharing some of my favorite things to add to my Easter baskets along with a few items that would be great to give as a gift as well!
Putting together a basket for a baby is my favorite thing to do – especially since buybuyBABY has so many unique brands and small items that are perfect for a basket! Right now they have great sleepers, sets and dresses that are Easter themed.
I thought this little Herschel hat was the cutest – buybuyBABY Whitby had quite a few patterns to choose from. And this bib from Elodie Details is probably the most stylish one I’ve seen – wipeable bibs are definitely the way to go because of their easy clean up!
Pacifier clips are becoming more and more stylish, and there were a few I could have chosen but this one made by Loulou LOLLIPOP was my favorite to add to this basket because it was adorable, and doubled as a teether.
I needed a fun sippy cup to add as well, and I really loved the colour of this one by Bello Tunno with the cute saying. It also won’t crack or break when dropped on the floor because of it’s soft design. I always add a good book to my Easter baskets, and I thought The Velveteen Rabbit would be a good fit for Easter.
For the older children I found a few things that I thought they would love including these great stuffed animals from Mary Meyer. This sloth is my favorite! I feel like Bathtub Crayons and Bathtub Markers are something every child enjoys! Who doesn’t love to make a mess? I’ve never minded a bathtub clean up because it’s so much easier than anywhere else in the house!
The Jurassic World Captive Clash Edition eggs were something I had never seen before, and inside they have slime (sorry parents, but kids love slime!) and a surprise dinosaur.
The Very Cranky Bear has always been a favourite book in our house so I had to include it (I LOVE the book section at buybyBABY), and this toddler Under Armor hat was a great addition since spring is here and it’s starting to get sunny.
I started out the next basket with another stuffed animal from Mary Meyer – this time the sheep was my choice, but they had quite a few stuffed animal options at buybuyBABY. Every time I buy someone a Hatchimal they seem to love it! I think it’s just fun to see what could possibly be inside that big egg, so I decided to add that to my basket.
I’m not sure if you know this or not, but buybuyBABY Whitby has the BEST selection of girls bows! They have a few racks of adorable colorful bows that I love to pick up for my nieces, so I grabbed a pretty multicolour pack to add to this basket.
I added in another fun board book of course, and an L.O.L Surprise! #Hairgoals doll as well. L.O.L. Surprise! dolls are so cute, and I know if I was a kid I would love to collect them too. I also added a Dino Collecto Wildly Adorable! egg because it has a plush toy inside, and a glittery egg to crack open!
There are so many other toys, books, clothing and accessories I could have added to my baskets from BuyBuyBABY Whitby – they even have a section at the front of the store with small toys and Easter-themed items to add to your basket and to make your shopping easier. I love all of the small items that were unique and easy to add to a basket, but there were also a few larger items that you might want to purchase as just a gift for Easter that I wanted to mention.
The Holiday Hoppers came in an Easter Rabbit edition that could be a great gift for Easter! They can be used indoors or outdoors, and are fun to bounce on! The price is great too!
I don’t think I’ve ever met a child who doesn’t love a play lawnmower – especially one that blows bubbles! It’s spring so it’s a great time to give one as a gift, and the Fisher-Price Bubble Mower is priced at only $34.99.
One more stand-alone gift I wanted to mention was the Skip Hop Silver Lining Rainbow Cloud Push Toy. It’s at a great price point of $21.49, and it’s bright and colourful for spring. These toys are great for learning how to balance, and I just think it’s the cutest toy!
I hope some of the things I’ve highlighted in my baskets have given you a few good ideas for things to pick up for your own baskets for Easter. I especially love some of the beautiful books the buybuyBABY Whitby store has to choose from, and the store has some great ones that are new for spring. buybuyBABY Whitby is located at 1650 Victoria street East!
