Baby's First Easter Basket

This is my first time ever making an Easter Basket up for my little girl and I wanted it to be very special for her.
I picked up an adorable (and super cheap) little plastic bucket with an adorable fox on it at Target as a basket.
You can't really find anything at the store for a baby's Easter Basket; especially a 6 week old baby, so I had to get creative.
Here is what I came up with:

1.  Alexander Girard Color: He's one of my most favorite artists and the book's illustrations are absolutely wonderful!
2.  Pantone Colors:  This book is really great with a lot of color mixing and names for the different shades and tints of color.
3.  Amelia Anemone the Bunny from Sleepy King
4.  ASL I love you natural wooden teether
5.  Natural Wooden Easter Eggs, hand painted with all natural paints

Amelia already loves being read to, so much, so I knew that books were going to be a must have.  These two books were not only wonderful for her, they were also really aesthetically pleasing for me as well :)
I love Sleepy King, and I had actually ordered this bunny awhile back, because I knew one day I would have an Amelia of my own.
I wanted to do something with eggs (obviously) but I wanted something sustainable and all natural for her in case they ended up in her mouth :)
I love that we can add these to a play kitchen down the line as well.
I also stitched her up a little dollhouse pillow, that I will blog more about later when I take some photos of it.  It is adorable and, hopefully, a little gift she can treasure for a long time to come!!
What are you all filling your Easter Baskets with this year?
Any other suggestions for people trying to get creative with their basket fillers this year?

  1. Adorable!
    I wish Easter weren't so soon, because I would totally be swiping up all of those things!

    (feel free to come enter my $50 giftcard giveaway!)

  2. I always put summery things in my kids' baskets because we have such a long summer here they can start using most of them immediately. This year they're getting shorts or swim trunks, sunglasses, and a slip n slide. I also got each of them a DVD and some little trinkets. I try to not get any candy for the baskets because there's plenty in between school hunts and the one we do at home. Happy Easter!

  3. Precious! Everything is perfect-You can never go wrong with books or plush or anything you can repurpose for her childhood. :) Happy Easter!

  4. Happy First Easter, Amelia!

  5. I posted about the goodies I'm putting in Ariana's basket a few days ago http://nowoodenspoons.blogspot.de/2012/04/basket-breakdown.html

  6. It's my son's second Easter this year, but here is what I included in his basket last year for his first Easter:


    Lots of Easter-themed books, stuffed animals, puffs, and a My First Easter bib. Hope you have a great day tomorrow!
