Baby’s first Easter basket

Easter is one of my favorite holidays because it is one of the most meaningful ones. It’s the day that we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and it is a day that is very important to my family and I. As adults we understand the true meaning behind this day, however as a young child many of my memories revolved around bunnies, dying Easter eggs and searching all over our backyard for hidden eggs.. This is also one of the many reasons why I love Easter. It is a holiday that allows your child to use their imagination and take their mind to new places. Of course we look forward to the day when Landon is old enough to understand the real meaning behind Easter Sunday, but until then we will try to make this day as fun and special as possible.

Growing up, I always looked forward to waking up on Easter morning to a giant Easter basket full of surprises and many of my favorite things. Every year my parents would buy me a Disney mug, which was part of a collection that Disney had going at the time. Every year it was a different theme- full of disney princesses or stories from my favorite movies. I still have these mugs and cherish them, as they are now keepsakes, but the best part about them is that they bring me right back to that special moment. Even though Landon is only 5 months old, I still wanted to make a basket for him because I wanted to start a tradition with him and hope that one day he will be just as excited to open his Easter basket as I was!

I chose practical items to put in his basket, things that I knew he would use (with the exception of the adorable bunny ears- couldn’t resist)! I am also really excited for L to try out the teething egg, I have read great things about it! I love that it comes with a clip, which makes it easy to pin on his pants when we are on the go. My favorite item in his basket was my ‘all-time favorite’ Easter book growing up called, The Country Bunny. I had to contain myself from reading it as soon as it came in the mail. I want to save it for Easter. I love all of the images in the book and remember them to this very day. I chose not to include a stuffed animal bunny in this basket, only because he already has one- but it was hard to resist all of the cute plush animals in the stores right now. Lastly, I love the monogrammed basket cover that I found at Target with his initial on it. I plan to keep this basket and use it year after year because it is just so perfect!

Below is a list of all of the items found in Landon’s basket, along with the links to where we purchased them!
