I love each first during baby’s first year, including all the holidays. Now that we’re gearing up for Easter, putting together baby’s first Easter basket is on my mind. Here is a list of ideas of what to add to baby’s Easter basket.
This list doesn’t include any candy, but it does include fun toys, books, teethers and snacks baby can enjoy. I’ve even added some practical items you may want to add as well. Enjoy!

Choose Your Easter Basket
Baby’s First Easter Basket: Toys
This is the perfect opportunity to grab some of the small toys you’ve been considering for baby.
Here are some of the bestsellers on Amazon (and our reader’s top picks):
#1 Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes
This is my absolute top pick for babies.
The Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Player was the one thing that would usually calm my “colicky” daughter down when we were out and about during her first year.
It’s small enough that I could put in her car seat and she loved to hold it, because of its’ bright colors.
It’s the perfect size for an Easter basket!
#2 Stacking Cups
These stacking cups are my son’s favorite and they have over 12,000 five star reviews on Amazon.
They’re relatively inexpensive, great for the developing infant mind, and the perfect size to add to an Easter basket.
#3 Crayola Egg Crayons
These egg-shaped crayons are adorable.
They are chunky enough for babies to grasp to create their first piece of art.
I love sticking to a theme, so they’re clearly a great choice for an Easter basket.
#4 Hide and Squeak Eggs
These fun toy carton full of squeaky eggs will entertain your baby.
My youngest still loves these at 20 months old. He likes placing them in and out of the carton and squeaking the eggs. They also have shapes inside each egg, so it’s a great tool for learning them.
Easter Basket for Babies: Feeding
Putting together baby’s first Easter basket is such a great opportunity to grab some of the practical things you’ll need for baby anyway.
Here are our reader’s top picks:
#1 Munchkin 360 Sippy Cups
Even though we tried many different sippy cups for both kids, both of them ended up preferring Munchkin 360 cups better than anything else.
Both my little ones picked right up on how to drink out of them after playing with them for a bit too. There’s defintely a reason why they’re an Amazon bestseller.
They’re also the perfect size to throw into baby’s first Easter basket!
#2 Silicone Food Catching Bibs
I love these silicone bibs, because they’re incredibly easy to clean.
We used cloth bibs for the longest time and we went through them so quickly each week, because they had to be washed after every meal.
With these silicone bibs, you can quickly wash them in the kitchen sink. The food catching part of the bib is incredibly helpful as well.
Baby’s Easter Basket: Books
#1 Good News! It’s Easter!
If you’re looking for a Christ-centered Easters book, I like Good News! It’s Easter!
#2 Llama Llama Easter Egg
We love the Llama Lllama Books in our home! If you haven’t read any yet, you should defintely add them to your library. They’ve helped my kids learn new words as young toddlers and they really grab their attention.
So of course Llama Llama Easter egg makes the list!
#3 Happy Easter, Mouse
We are also BIG “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” fans!
I love that they’ve been coming out with seasonal books and we’re already loving Happy Easter, Mouse!
#4 My First Easter
The book title says it all and it’s really an adorable book to have.
My first Easter is perfect for baby’s first Easter basket!
Baby’s First Easter Basket: Snacks
I personally don’t add candy to Easter baskets until my little ones are older. Instead I like to add snack options like food pouches, puffs and yogurt melts.
Your baby will love taking everything out of the Easter basket, so adding these fun snacks will be something extra they can do so with.
You can also grab a package of empty craft eggs and fill them with puffs and yogurt melts for an extra fun surprise.
I’ve found older babies and toddlers love playing with these craft eggs, so they’re fun to have in the house or to throw in a busy bag.
Baby Easter Basket Ideas: Teethers
#1 Infantino Textured Carrot Teether
This adorable carrot shaped teether is perfect for baby’s first Easter basket!
It’s textured, which babies love. It also has two handles for easy gripping. It’s defintely on Amazon’s top seller list for a reason!
#2 Eco-Friendly Wooden Bunny Teether
This eco-friendly wooden teether is a great option if you prefer an eco-friendly wooden teethers.
#3 Silicone Bunny Teether
This adorable bunny teether is the perfect fit for baby’s first Easter basket as well.
