It’s your baby’s first Easter! But wait– There’s one problem… What do you buy a baby for Easter?

Since your baby probably won’t remember his first Easter, this is the perfect time to sneak in some of the things you’ve been wanting to get her anyways.

The Easter bunny may not be able to bring your baby the usual candy and eggs, but here are some useful Easter basket ideas for babies that he CAN bring (and you’ll be glad he did).

Easer basket ideas for babies under 1 (quick list)

Baby Easter basket stuffers

Easter Books for Babies

Books make great Easter basket stuffers for babies!

It’s never too early to start reading to your baby. They will enjoy looking at the colorful pictures and snuggling with you even if they don’t 100% know what you’re saying– yet.

According to this Fisher-Price article, studies show that consistently reading to children helps them “develop improved language skills” and an “increased interest in reading.”

I can say from experience that school now for our little ones is so much different than it was when WE were in school. The more familiar your child is with books and all things reading, the better.

Your baby will love this book. According to the reviews, one parent pointed out how she loves that there is something to touch on each page rather than just a few.

Perfect for introducing new textures, which you can start introducing at 3-6 months.

Teethers & Rattles

Teething toys and rattles make perfect Easter basket stuffers for babies. Since you’ll most likely be buying these anyways, why not make it count?

Textured Carrot Teether

This little teether is made of BPA-free silicone and features easy-to-hold handles and two textured sides. Perfect for soothing sore gums and Easter baskets!

Taggies Teether Baby Rattle

This bunny teether toy is small enough for tiny hands, rattles, and has 4 soft, textured tag ribbons your baby will love. It’s the perfect Easter basket stuffer.

The teething ring is made from silicone and measures 6 inches.

Nuby Silicone Teethe-eez Teether with Bristles

The Nuby Teethe-eez Teether has multiple surfaces and will help soothe and clean tender gums. It may have a somewhat simple design, but babies love it.

NogginStik Light-Up Rattle

The NogginStik Light-Up Rattle isn’t your typical baby rattle.

This multi-activity toy changes colors (from red to blue to green) at the flick of the rattle and also has a mirror on the bottom so that baby can see her reflection.

My First Easter Outfits

And of course, you can’t forget the cute Easter onesies and other Easter attire! For the pics you’ll show their future dates ya know. 😉

Although Amazon has lots of these to choose from, here are our personal favorites:

Bunny Rabbit Beanie

Looking for an idea that’s a little more minimalist than a complete outfit?

Try a bunny ears beanie! How stinking adorable and you can choose between pink or blue.
