Baby's First Easter Basket

It's been so cold and snowy here that it barely feels like Spring and with Easter coming so early this year, it's heard to believe that it's this Sunday. Easter has always been my favorite holiday since I was a kid so naturally, I'm overly excited for Aubrey's first Easter. She's only 8 weeks old and I know she probably won't remember this Easter but whatever, she still needs and Easter basket full of fun stuff. Making an Easter basket for a baby is not an easy thing because you have to be really creative. I spent hours in the stores yesterday searching for ideas and I finally came up with a basket full of cuteness. Hopefully, this will be of some help to some of the moms out there who are looking for ideas...

Huggies Travel Wipes
Boogie Wipes
Fisher Price Baby's First Purse
She had to have this! My family called me "the bag lady" because every time we went to a department store I would pick out handbags and load them up on my arms. I guess you could say I had an obsession with purses when I was little and apparently some things just stay with you.
First Pearl Bracelet
Another must have! It's just a piece of costume jewelry and it probably won't fit her for a while but if anyone knows me they know I love pearls (another thing that started in my childhood and stayed with me). I've been looking for a tiny pearl bracelet in fine jewelry stores but they're not so easy to find in small sizes so this will have to suffice for the time being.
Shabby Chic Wall HookI found this at Michael's and I thought it was adorable; I think the glittered edges sold me. This will be great for hanging an outfit or dress on.

Munchkin Ring Teether
Munchkin Safety Spoons

They actually turn color when the food is too hot- such a great idea!
Penn State Cheerleader Uniform
I searched high and low for a cheerleader outfit and it wasn't easy finding the pink version but I tracked one down! This is just the first of her many Penn State outfits.
...And then there's what I wish was in her Easter basket.
Neon Cap Toe Ballet Flats
I found these adorable cap toes at Target but they didn't have her size! They would match her Easter dress perfectly too. I'm going to check another Target in hopes of finding her size so wish me luck! I wish they came in my size too!


  1. I want those shoes in my size too!!! I loved boogie wipes when my ones were little!!!

  2. Adorable, seriously. Little girls are much easier than boys for Easter baskets. I remember being thrilled with little lip balms and finger nail polishes... my boys, not so much. ;)

  3. What an adorable assortment of things! Love the pearl bracelet - so classic! I recently picked up a pearl & ribbon necklace for my daughter from the J.Crew outlet - I'm going to give it to her for her 6th birthday :-)

  4. How stinkin' cute is this basket! The cap toe shoes are adorable!

  5. Omg, the lamb! The shoes! The entire basket! Cuteness overload! :)
