Easter Basket Ideas For Infants and Babies

If your child is too young for candy, these are some great ideas to fill your baby's Easter basket


We're in a hybrid-type season: the older boys are loving candy and small toys, yet the twins are wayyyyy too young for candy and are even too young for most toys commonly sold for Easter baskets. When I went out and went shopping for this, most things I found were for ages 3+, which is great for my older kids, but what the heck do you do with the babies?! Furthermore, I can't give out tiny toys that my older sons might mistakenly give to one of the twins, or that might end up on the playroom floor, and quickly wind up in a baby's mouth. So if you're like me, and you've got babies to figure out this Easter, check out these Easter basket ideas for babies and infants. *affiliate links used*


Real quick, if you've got toddlers too, check out this post I wrote a while back on non candy Easter basket ideas for tots. Lots of fun stuff in there! We don't do "big gifts" for Easter, although I know some families do. For us, it's more about the fun of discovering the basket, and small, simple gift ideas that help celebrate the renewal of spring.



Babies are a bit harder than toddlers for Easter baskets. They clearly can't have candy yet, and so many of the fun nic-knacky items are meant for ages 2 or 3+. I'm a big fan of keeping it simple (uncomplicated, you might say!) so here's what we're doing for the twins:

White wicker Easter basket, similar to the one pictured

Sparkly Easter eggs

Stuffed bunny 

Easter Sunday outfit (this one is adorable for boys, this one is similar to what I have pictured and this one *would be* what I'd get if I had a girl)

Carrot teether

Hardcover book about Easter

Easter baskets are a fun tradition I started with my kids. Growing up, my parents/the Easter bunny hid candy around the house and we'd take a basket and find it all. We'd get new dresses to wear to church, that usually got covered up with thick coats because we lived in Minneapolis, and it's still the dead of winter there through April. Maybe when my boys are a tad older we'll start to do that, but for now, the dog would get into the candy piles and my husband and Otto would eat all the candy, as Henry doesn't like it that much (nor do I) and the twins don't even have teeth yet. It's really fun to start holiday traditions with your own immediate family! Doing these Easter baskets for the babies is a fun way to get them acclimated to what our family does and celebrates for the spring holiday.

  2. Oh, how cute! Love the ideas! My son is only 16 months old so definitely too young for candy. But he would love the books for sure.

  4. These are so stinking cute! Makes me wish my kids were little again! All I can do is put money in a plastic egg to get them to enjoy Easter activities.
