Looking for some baby Easter basket ideas that won’t be a waste of money? This guide will show you what to put into your little’s basket this spring without feeling like it’s packed with junk. A mix of fun toys and useful items, every bunny will love these Easter Basket stuffers for baby.
Generally speaking, I’m an advocate of, “baby won’t know what’s happening for a few years so buying them holiday gifts is a waste.”
But with boys really into all things holiday, I know that will have to change. I really don’t want to be dealing with “Why didn’t the Easter Bunny bring the baby anything!?” kind of questions.
But rather than curating a basket of junk that we’ll never use and will turn into a waste of money, I plan on stuffing it wil useful and fun items. It’s exactly what I do with the boys, but for babies!
Baby Easter Basket Ideas That Aren’t a Waste
If you’re looking for some easy ideas, look no further. These tips and tricks for how to fill out your little’s basket are both practical and fun! Here you’ll find some ideas for essentials to add in as well as fun items that won’t be tossed in a day.
Baby Snack Filler Ideas:
I tend to skip candy in my kids’ Easter basket, mostly because I know the grandparents will give it to them. (I do the same with their no candy stocking stuffers!) That doesn’t mean I don’t like to toss in a few tasty treats. If your baby is eating solids, here are a few ideas of what you can add.
- Baby food pouches
- Teething biscuits
- Freeze dried fruit

Practical and Fun Baby Easter Basket Ideas
Okay, so not the most practical, but a first only comes once! Bonus, you don’t have to find any stuffers for it.
A soft, sweet bunny attached to a pacifier? Yes please! This is the perfect balance of “Easter basket” and things you’ll use later.
This teether is too cute not to include. Not only is it super useful as a teether with a great shape for baby hands. But it could make for some super cute photo ops as baby chews on the carrot shaped teether!
Of course, you need some kind of plush baby for them to snuggle. This bunny is cute, affordable, and will be cherished for years!

My kids always loved these little finger puppet books. They’re great now, when mom and dad can read and “be” the bunny, as well as down the road when baby can independently enjoy the book.
I can’t say no to Easter books for kids! This one is super cute and I know my kids would still read it year after year, even when it isn’t their “first” anymore.
Skip the plastic eggs with junk inside (baby won’t be able to open them anyway) and opt for these instead. They’re the perfect size for little hands to grasp and shake and will last for years.
Make tummy time a tiny bit easier with this super cute water mat! It’s great for sensory play and super affordable.
These egg shaped crayons are perfectly and intentionally designed for little hands. Plus, they’re washable since we know it will be some time before the coloring stays on the page.
These silicone feeders are awesome when baby is first learning solids! Put in some fruit and let baby chomp away at it, enjoying teh food and flavor without any choking risk. The silicone ones are MUCH easier to clean than the mesh version.
This might be one of the cutest baby Easter basket ideas – this little stuffed lamb is also a taggie toy to help with sensory development. The tags make this an interactive and soothing plush toy for babies.
I’ve written about this style of bib before in my baby with reflux post, but this is a great essential to stock up on. Bonus, this version has a teether at the end so you’re not always searching for one in your bag. And baby can’t drop it!
These Fat Brain toys don’t just look funky – they’re made to helo your baby develop and explore textures, cause and effect, and more. My 3 and 5 year old STILL like playing with this as a bit of a fidget toy.
The last book, I promise, but this one is too cute not to include. Not only is it bunny themed to go with our baby Easter basket ideas, but it’s a book that will hold their interest past the holiday.
Food pouches are worth a second mention – they’re the perfect snack and treat for baby! Anything you can toss in your bag and break out when your little gets hungry and cranky is a win to me. Bonus: at the time of posting these are well less than $1 a pouch which is a steal.
We LOVE bows and headbands. Can a baby girl have enough? These are relatively neutral so they’ll match a lot of her clothing!
I will sing the praises all day long about the value of this product – I ADORE it. We got it with Ryan and I used it through Owen. It’s the ONLY way I survived baby led weaning on the go and made eating at restaurants a BREEZE with a baby.
Bath toys are always a win in any Easter basket. These aren’t open so they won’t hold mold and will be safe when baby inevitably pops on in her mouth.
Finally, no more lost pacis! Adding a pacifier clip to my list of baby Easter Basket ideas is both practical and pretty. Bonus, they have TONS of colors and designs on Amazon.
