Easter Basket 2020

Easter is almost here and we still have some planning and brainstorming to do, but we have the last few bits we needed to create our daughter's Easter basket. As you will know we do love putting together seasonal baskets for our daughter and they always go down so well. But I have yet to share a Easter basket with you all, so that's the plan for today. 

Do you do an Easter basket? I know that Easter baskets aren't such a big thing, in comparison to Christmas Eve baskets, but they should be. It's such a great way for little ones to get excited before their Easter Egg hunt. But before you spend a small fortune on any Easter basket for your family, I would really love to share creative ways and give some ideas of what you could include. Whether you're making a basket for a baby, toddler or a tween some of these basket ideas will certainly bring a smile to their face. 

If your little ones are anything like mine then they will love discovering gifts with names on them. Just like this gorgeous personalised small Easter drawstring bags that are a perfect keepsake Easter gift that can also be used during an Easter egg hunt. These bags have a Peter Rabbit printed on them with their name underneath, I really like the size of these bag making them perfect for little hands. Love by Jacob have so many cute little personalised gift ideas that you could use inside your Easter hamper from decorations, bags and even party bags. 

Keeping with the Peter Rabbit theme we will also have an adorable fluffy Flopsy Bunny Toy from the classic Beatrix Potter books to add into her basket. This soft toy is made from premium soft plush with the original illustrations and Flopsy Bunny's signature pink jacket with a cute embroidered butterfly Motif. I know she is just going to love seeing Flopsy in her basket as Peter Rabbit is her favourite book and television programme. 

Looking to avoid the chocolate indulgence this Easter? Whether your little one can’t actually eat chocolate or whether you’d simply just like a healthier alternative to the usual Easter gifts there are so many adorable ideas out there. With our seasonal baskets we like to include a good balance of chocolate, sweets, gifts and some craft bits. 

We love this personalised name puzzle which is a great way to make children feel special and help them learn their own names at the same time. These are available in a wide range of colours, designs, sizes to choose from, so that the puzzle could perfectly match a child’s room design and work not only as a toy, but also as a beautiful decoration.  

My daughter absolutely loves Hatchimals and is always happy to welcome new additions to her ever growing collection. Hatchimals are ready to bloom for Spring! This beautiful Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Spring Bouquet includes six exclusive characters – five hidden inside flowers and one cutie ready to play. You can remove each stem from the beautiful bouquet and crack open each flower to discover a new friend. These are super bright and vibrant ensuring their colours brighten up all Hatchimal fans, they also have golden glittery wings inside each bloom. 

I know that these new Hatchimals Spring Bouquet CollEGGtibles series are definitely going to become her favourite as she loves glitter, colours and little Hatchimals. With a total of 12 characters to collect from two different bouquets the Spring Bouquet is the prettiest way to display your Hatchimals. The Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Spring Bouquet is going to be the first thing that my daughter takes out from her Easter basket that's for sure. The Hatchimals Spring Bouquet is £15 from Smyths toy shop. Which is the same price as some people spend on chocolate for Easter. So it makes an EGGscellant alternative Easter gift.

My daughter loves chocolate, she loves jelly beans but she also loves books. Each year I do like to get her a little Easter themed book to add into her basket and there are a few that make great Easter reading. But a favourite choice for us is We're Going on an Egg Hunt where you can join the Easter bunnies as they set off on an exciting lift the tab Easter egg hunt. With ten eggs to find and count, it's great fun. Not only that, we also like to include a couple of Easter themed crafts, colouring books and stickers for those who love to get creative. 

It isn't really Easter without chocolate so I have picked up a couple of small treats to add into her basket. We are more than equipped for our Easter egg hunt for Sunday afternoon so we have kept the chocolate treats for her basket really small.

What do you think of our Easter basket? Do you think our daughter will love it? What will you have in your Easter basket.
