Ahhh Easter is less than two weeks away!! It’s crazy to think that last year my daughter Blakely was only 4 months old, and now she will be 16 months!
As much as I’d like to say I am totally organized with her Easter basket ready to go, I am just not that mom. BUT I at least came up with some pretty adorable ideas for you (and me) to get shopping for your toddler. I mixed in a little bit of practical ideas with a touch of fun and festive. Most of the items I linked have quick shipping times and should arrive before Easter Sunday on April 17, 2022!
This Easter, Casey, Blakely and I are going to visit my family in Columbia, South Carolina! My mom already has a big Easter egg hunt planned and Blakely’s first Easter Sunday at church. I can’t wait for all the Easter fun… and to dress her up in her first Easter dress! Stay tuned on my socials for all the real time content!
Bunny Themed Books // One year olds are at the perfect age for gifting books. Not only are they interactive and building quality time from you reading them the book, but they are also so important for a child’s development. Some cute Easter themed books are Pat the Bunny (we actually were gifted this set and Blakely LOVES), Guess How Much I Love You, The Great Eggscape (has stickers!), and Little Blue Truck Springtime (another one of Blakely’s favorites).
Serenity Kids Snacks // This brand is incredible y’all. As a mom, it’s even more important to me to pay attention to the quality and nutritional value of a food. With no added sugar, all organic, and using grass-fed meats, this is a brand we love, trust and use almost daily! Blakely’s favorite products are their pouches and their grain free puffs.
Spring Hair Bows // Blakely has got some HAIR on her. In fact, we’ve been told multiple times it looks like she has a mullet hahaha. Hair bows are a necessity to tame all that hair because I am not ready to cut it yet! These are a super cute floral spring option, and these are an Amazon version that help you get more bang for your buck.
Sidewalk Chalk // The ultimate entertainment for toddlers and beyond. We introduced sidewalk chalk to Blakely last month and it is her new obsession. Her face lights up and she nods aggressively when we ask, “Do you want to go outside and play with chalk?” I found a 12 pack in the dollar section of Target, but these on Amazon come with 20 and are non-toxic for the learning toddlers that still put the chalk in their mouth.
Yeti Toddler Sippy Cup // I have a Hydroflask cup with a straw lid that I use almost daily, and Blakely is constantly grabbing for it to drink. For Easter this year we are gifting her her own little toddler cup that looks like mommys. I’ve read the reviews on both the Yeti and Hydroflask, and from what I’ve read the toddler Hydroflask cup leaks more, so we are going with the Yeti.
Stuffed Bunny // Blakely really has so many stuffed bunnies that were gifted to her as a newborn, and most have been hiding in the closet. I’ll let you in on a mom tip I’ve been told – if you put away toys for a while then bring them back out a week or so later toddlers think they are new toys and will be endlessly entertained. With that said, I’m going to just throw one of the bunnies in her Easter basket and she will seriously think it’s good as new.
Spring Dresses and Rompers // if you don’t already know, my favorite store to buy Blakely’s clothes at is Born Baby here in Atlanta. This is the cute spring dress featured in the graphic, but here is all of their spring dresses and rompers. I also ventured on baby Zara and found the most adorable spring overall dress and white flare jeans. I mean CMON -so cute.
Flower Pop It // Not only is this toy aesthetically pleasing, but it’s very interactive and inspires learning with the pressing and popping. I am obsessed with anything by the brand Mushie, and their toys will definitely be added to Blakely’s Easter Basket this year!
Spring Shoes // Another Born Baby favorite. I’m obsessed with these and want Blakely to wear them Easter Sunday for church. Shoes are always a great gift item for toddlers since they are busy running around and getting dirty. Here are another pair of everyday sandals that have amazing reviews on Amazon.
Stay Well and Happy Easter!
