Baby Easter Basket Ideas on a Budget


Oh, Easter! That time of year when the world is awash in pastel colors, and you're trying to figure out how to make it special for the tiniest member of your family who is more likely to eat the Easter grass than appreciate the aesthetic of a beautifully curated Easter basket.

Let's be real; shopping for babies can feel like solving a Rubik's cube blindfolded. What do they like? What don't they like? The answer: Who knows?

They're babies. But, armed with the wisdom of countless parents before us and some savvy shopping tips, we can create an Easter basket that will delight both baby and parent alike.

Plush Toys

What baby doesn't want to start their own zoo of soft, squishy animals? Look for bunny-themed stuffed animals to keep in the Easter theme.

They're perfect for snuggling and can make for adorable photo ops. Just make sure they're baby-friendly – think large enough not to be a choking hazard but soft enough for cuddles.

BJ's had a better selection than Sam's this year. Costco is the best place to get a good price on Squishmallows; they also have mini ones.

For BJ's members, they are having an Easter Shopping event. When you spend $150 in one transaction, you'll get a $20 award. Details here.

You can find these adorable HugFun Plush Easter Baskets at BJ's too!

Board Books

It's never too early to start a baby's library, and Easter-themed board books are a great addition. Books with bright pictures, simple stories, and touch-and-feel elements are fantastic for sensory development. Plus, it's a sweet bonding activity for parents and babies.

Check out the board books at BJ's, Costco or Sam's.

Teething Toys

A cute teether can be a thoughtful and practical gift if your little one is teething. Silicone teethers that can be chilled are a godsend for sore gums. Bonus points if it's shaped like a carrot or bunny! Amazon has some nice bunny ones!

Sam's has a great price on Gerber Organic Teethers, Teething Wafers Variety Pack!

Developmental Toys

Toys that encourage reaching, grasping, and exploring are wonderful for helping babies hit those developmental milestones. Think soft rattles, crinkle toys, or anything with a mirror.

These toys entertain and aid in cognitive development and fine motor skills.

Bulk Buying: A Parent's Best Friend

Now, let's talk strategy. As much as we love our little bundles of joy, let's face it – babies are expensive. Buying in bulk is one way to save some cash without skimping on quality.

Retailers like BJ's Wholesale Club, Sam's Club, or Costco are fantastic places to score deals on items like plush toys, board books, and developmental toys.

Buying in bulk saves money and time. And when you're running on three hours of sleep and haven't had a hot cup of coffee in weeks, time is more precious than gold. Imagine having a stash of gifts ready to go for not just Easter but upcoming baby showers, birthdays, and those “just because” moments. Genius, right?

Happy Easter shopping, everyone. May your baskets be full, your coffee be strong, and your baby's giggles be plentiful.
