Easter Basket Ideas for 2-Year-Old Boys

Easter is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start getting those baskets ready! I’m helping you out today with some creative and unique Easter basket ideas for 2-year-old boys. Of course, many of these ideas will work for other ages and toddler girls as well. I’ve also included some of my favorite Easter basket ideas for babies!

In 2017, Easter is on April 16. That means we have less than a month to get everything ready for the little ones. Isn’t it funny how much planning goes into holidays when you’re a parent? I miss being a kid, when everything was magically ready for you when you woke up on a special day. Only now do I realize how much work my mom put into those Easter baskets, Easter meals, and egg hunts!

For once, I actually planned ahead and already have Colton’s basket ready to go! Here’s what’s in my 2-year-old boy’s Easter basket this year…

As you can see, we do a mix of candy and non-candy items for our baskets. Honestly, my husband and I will eat most of the candy! I consider it a “tip” for all of my hard work putting together the basket. That’s fair, right?

Many of my son’s Easter basket fillers are toys that he can play with in the car, like the sticker book and play pack. I’m always running out of ways to entertain him in the car, so I try to give “car toys” as part of his gifts whenever I can. I also included some outdoor items (garden tool set, bubble wand, sidewalk chalk) because he loves spending time outdoors in the summer.

Pottery Barn Kids Easter Baskets

The basket itself is a Peter Rabbit design from Pottery Barn Kids. I purchased the basket and liner for his first Easter in 2015, and it doesn’t appear that PBK stocks the exact designs any longer. They have several similar offerings, though. I really like this option for a little guy. And this one or this ruffled one would be precious for a little lady! I bought Colton’s PBK basket as an investment and plan to use it every year for him. I’m going to pick one up for baby girl, too!

How sweet is 3-month-old Colton with his very first Easter basket? By the way, please excuse the grainy photo quality. I was working with an ancient phone at that time! At least my subject was cute.
