One of our favorite Easter traditions is filling those baskets with goodies. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Easter basket ideas for the season!

Sure, you could go the good ol’ fashioned plastic basket route, but why not spruce it up this year and spring for an adorable lamb (or bunny) basket instead? You can even personalize it with your child’s name on the back to re-use year after year.

What’s Easter without egg coloring? I’m particularly fond of this Eco-Egg Coloring Kit that doesn’t use any chemicals or additives in their paints, so it’s as safe for your kids as it is fun!

Easter and the famously bright Peeps go hand in hand, so make sure to put these on your Easter basket shopping list.

Every Easter basket has to have its share of Easter or bunny-themed books. While classic tales like Peter Rabbit are always a hit, how about mixing it up and adding in the contemporary story of Brown Rabbit in the City.

There’s a million stuffed bunnies to choose from, but this Jellycat Bashful Blossom Bunny is just too cute and cuddly to pass up. I particularly adore the vintage floral pattern in the ears.

What little kid wouldn’t go bananas over these Geo Central Hatch Em’ Eggs?! You simply poke a small hole in each egg, and place in water. 48 hours later, and voila! you’ve got creatures from dinosaurs to penguins growing and coming out of the shells! Cool!

For the littlest celebrator, how about this darling iPlay Pull-Along Hen? It’s great for encouraging those just starting to walk, and entertaining those that are already up and about.
