How adorable is this Baby’s First Easter Basket?! It’s full of useful goodies for new moms and little ones.
Baby’s First Easter Basket
We are so excited planning for the arrival of little girl #3 this summer!
With Easter on the way, it got me thinking about what would be perfect for a baby’s first Easter basket.
I wanted our basket to be useful – filled with things that moms and babies really need – lots of non-candy Easter basket ideas for little ones!
I also wanted our baby Easter basket to be just as cute as the baskets the older girls receive.
A quick trip to our local craft store turned up adorable see-through bunny eggs that could easily be filled with little goodies like socks. They also had carrot-shaped eggs and eggs shaped like chicks. It was so hard to decide, but we went with a bunny theme for our basket!

What’s Inside Baby’s First Easter Basket:

- Receiving blankets
- Easter bunny hat
- Easter baby book
The above list is what we used in our baby Easter basket, but really they are simply suggestions to get you started. Feel free to customize with other helpful accessories for new moms and babies — diapers, pacifiers, bibs, teething rings, etc.

How to put together an Easter basket for a baby
First, we filled the bottom of our basket with a pack of wipes and rolled-up receiving blankets until the space was filled.
Next, we covered our surprise supplies on the bottom of the basket with another receiving blanket. I wanted to avoid the traditional “grass” basket fillers that could be dangerous for babies.
We found cute see-through eggs at our local craft store that we filled with things like pajamas, caps, and onesies.
Bunny-shaped eggs were filled with socks – which you can never have to many of with a new baby! (They’re always losing socks!)
Finally, we tucked shoes, Easter-themed baby books and other little things in any open space left in our baby Easter basket.
So simple, but so useful!
If you purchased a jumbo-sized Easter basket, you could include even more supplies that a baby always needs, like more wipes, diapers, and memory books or keepsake craft kits!
