Sam's Easter Basket Fillers

I cannot even begin to put into words how thrilled I am to put together Sam's first Easter basket. I know it seems trivial, but it's something I've dreamed of doing since before he was born. I love celebrating holidays. Easter is one of my favorites, and being a Mom makes those little celebrations so much sweeter. Playing Easter bunny, Santa, and whoever else comes my way, is the most fun!

I know it can be difficult to come up with non-candy items for baskets, especially for babies, so I wanted to share what we intend on filling Sam's with. Most of these items are super accessible and can be picked up from your local Target. Let's be honest, at this stage of life if it doesn't come from Target, I'm probably not buying it. 

I picked up the sippy cup and the swim trunks recently and they're probably my favorite fillers! If you know me at all, you know I'm pineapple obsessed and these swim trunks were only $10! And I think the cup was like $4? The bunny ears are just too precious and I know Sam will love it. Give him a straw cup filled with water and he's a happy camper.

 Have y'all heard of The Teething Egg? It keeps popping up on my Facebook and Instagram with rave reviews so I thought we would try it out. Sam has 6 or 7 teeth, I'm unsure because he refuses to let me look most days, but he always has something in his mouth. A paci, a tooth brush, the dog's chew toy, dirt, you name it. Being that this is an egg, it couldn't be a more perfect addition for a babies basket.

 And what Easter basket is complete without a special book? I have about five in my amazon cart right now that I'm struggling to choose from. Although I love the idea of Easter baskets and decor, its really important to me to teach Sam the true story of Easter. Books like this one are the perfect opportunity for us to teach our babies about our love for Jesus and His love and sacrifice for us. Any opportunity to start a conversation about Him, is a good one.

 I hope everyone enjoys their day! Thank you so much for reading!


  1. I've seen the egg show up and read tons of reviews! I'm going to put this in our basket too! Thanks friend!
