First Year Easter Basket

This is my nephew’s first Easter and I will take any excuse to buy him presents. I couldn’t wait to build him an Easter basket! He is only 9 months old, so I couldn’t go with the traditional candy and treats. My first purchase was a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins I have been dying to get him.


Once I had those, I built the basket around them. I didn’t want to get a cheap little basket that my sister would just have to store or throw away, so I bought a storage basket from Target and painted some fun, bright stripes on it. When Easter is all over, my sister can use the basket in his nursery for storage!


Since I couldn’t fill the plastic eggs with jelly beans, I bought a pack of cute socks and put a pair in each egg.


To finish it off, I bought the Runaway Bunny board book and some bath toys.


I am mailing it off today and I can’t wait for the little man to get it!

What are you putting in Easter baskets this year?

  1. Best Aunt Ever! Love the basket, especially the socks in the eggs. Genius! I didn’t get my first born any Mocs and I have regretted it. Baby #2 will for sure have some!

  2. UMMMMMM, you win the BEST AUNT EVER award! Seriously – this is so very sweet and thoughtful of you — love the details and how you customized the basket so they can use it in his nursery! I’m so glad you linked up…. I love seeing creative ideas and baskets put together for family and friends. Your nephew is one lucky little guy! Happy almost Easter!!!
