I haven’t done a blog hop in years, but Sarah talked me into joining up with this one that she is hosting!
We honestly didn’t do an Easter basket for Stella for her first 2 Easters (at 3 months and 15 months old, I just didn’t think it was worth the effort), but this year she is 2 yrs 4 months old, and she is DEFINITELY into the whole idea of searching for eggs with little gifts in them. I am not a Pinterest mom or a gift-giving mom in the slightest, but I DO have fond memories of my Easter basket as a kid, so I figured it’s the least I could do for my own offspring.
Hm… on that note, I just realized I didn’t even buy a basket for Harvey. Maybe next year. 🙂
Without further ado, here is what I’ve thrown together for her basket this year. Please keep in mind that Stella is currently OBSESSED with anything purple & Hello Kitty (groan).
Easter basket: $4.50 (Target) – I bought this plain, metal tin basket so that she can use it all summer in the sandbox, etc. Since it’s purple, I’m sure she’ll love it. 🙂
Circo girls’ shoes: $15 (Target) – She saw me buying these last weekend, insisted on wearing them out of the store, and has rarely taken them off since (hence why they are already dirty and worn). So much for an Easter surprise!
Bunny ears: $1 (Target dollar bin) & a Hello Kitty headband: $3? (Target)
Rockee Toothbrush: $12.50 (Amazon) – This is NOT an electronic toothbrush, just a cool one that always sits upright (so easy drying / cleanliness) and it’s PURPLE, so why not? 🙂
Emi-Jay hair ties: $11 (Amazon) – Stella’s hair is finally getting long enough to pull back with ease, and these can double as wrist bands when not in her hair, so I’m guessing she will love them.
So there ya go! Nothing too crazy, but definitely lots of purple and lots of useful gifts that I’d have probably gotten for her anyway. We also picked up some cheap plastic eggs to do an Easter egg hunt in our back yard after church. 🙂
How about you? Are you doing an Easter basket for your kid(s) this year?
