EASTER TRADITIONS & BABIES
I’ve always loved Easter morning. There are so many reasons, but one that really stands out is our family tradition of the Easter basket hunt. Every Easter morning I would wake up ready to run around the house in search of my filled Easter basket. I was the youngest of four, so the chances someone might find my basket first was high. The “Easter bunny” was also very creative with the hiding spots, nothing was off limits. The dryer, washer, refrigerator, inside the grandfather clock….pretty much anywhere. We are going to carry on this tradition with Charlie this year, with his colorful basket from Infantino (not pictured below). I believe you need to start these family traditions very early so they stick. I mean here I am YEARS later still reminiscing about our tradition.
EASTER BASKET WITH WHEELS: I LOVE this basket I bought in Connecticut at Pink Lemon Blue Lime. It’s an Olli Ella basket and I have a feeling we will have it for years. There are wheels on the bottom and Charlie loves running around the house with it. You can find it HERE.
EASTER EGG: Even though Charlie is young, Easter is not complete without a little bit of candy. I got this special egg filled with mini eggs at Le Pain Quotidien. You can find it HERE.
MONOGRAMMED BUNNY & BOOK: I’m a huge fan of Jelly Cat. Their stuffed animals are so soft and Jelly Cat has books that go with each animal. You can find the Jelly Cat bunny, HERE & the, If I were a Rabbit book, HERE. We had Monogrammary monogram the bunnies ear with a heart and Charlie’s name. Now that I know Jelly Cat stuffed animals can be monogrammed, this will be a go-to baby gift for me. If you have a baby 0-4 months this Jelly Cat bunny is perfect, HERE.
BASKET LINER: I was worried about finding a liner that fit on such an odd shaped basket. I was pleasantly surprised that this one fit perfectly. You can find it, HERE.
Charlie’s entire outfit is from Janie & Jack. He wore the exact same thing last Easter….just in a much smaller size.
We have a few weekends filled with Easter events so I also got him a matching outfit for him and his brother (not here yet) You can shop this outfit below. Oh and check out his bunny ears.
Though Peeps, Cadbury eggs and chocolate bunnies were always a favorite, check out some toy focused ideas below. I also included some pretty Easter candy and some adorable outfits for your LO.
