Thoughts for Thursday: Easter Basket Goodies

I'm so excited that it's almost Easter! It's definitely one of my favorite holidays, and even though the main reason we mark the holiday in our household is to celebrate our risen Savior, it is fun for us to give our boys Easter baskets on Easter morning. 

Growing up, my parents always did this for us and it's a tradition I'm happily carrying along to my boys. When we were little, my grandparents always gave their grandchildren a brand new swimsuit for Easter, and I love carrying on that tradition, too, by putting one in my boys' Easter baskets (and my mom sends them a bathing suit, too!). 

So here are some ideas of what to put in your little one's Easter basket this year, excluding candy since that's a given for the bigger kids, right?! ;) 

For both: one || two || three

For girls: one || two || three

For boys: one || two || three 

Also, be sure to check out my post about books to put in Easter baskets, too! 

Linking up with Annie, Natalie and Julie 


  1. I have never thought to give binoculars-I bet Jax would love those! Maybe a boy version ;-) And swimsuits always make it into our baskets!

  2. These are all super cute! My parents still do small baskets for us, I'm sure that will stop once grandchildren come along!! The bathing suits are a great idea!

  3. I never thought to put a swimsuit in the boys basket, but I just might do it! Thanks for the idea! We always put books, chalk, bubbles, animal crackers and a few little toys or puzzles in the boys baskets. Easter is so fun!

  4. I can't wait to fill Vivi's first Easter basket!! I'm basically filling it with things she needs since obvi she will have no idea haha but still so much fun! My mom still fills one for me and my sisters, definitely a special tradition in our family
