Spring has officially sprung and I’ve started to refresh my home to reflect the warmer weather and lighter colors. I’ve started by bringing in more greenery – real and fake – to liven things up. If you aren’t sure where to start with this, check out my blog post Spring Home Tour with fresh Greens.
With the arrival of spring comes Easter and that means I am starting to pull together things for the kids Easter baskets. I get asked every year ‘what’s in the kid’s Easter baskets?’ So, I’ve rounded up the actual purchases I’ve made for my kids and a few ideas from years past!
Every year, the kids’ Easter baskets are generally the same. They always get coordinating Easter Sunday or spring outfits. These make taking family pictures easier and that way they’re all dressed up for the day. I always do swimsuits and googles, which are fun because it’s like it marks the beginning of swim season. Arts and crafts or small toys are always in there too.
The arts and crafts are always a huge hit and keep them busy for hours, which is why I like including them so much. One year I did giant coloring pages and they were a HUGE hit – no pun intended! I don’t include candy in their baskets because by the time easter actually hits, they have already gone through a few egg hunts and had their fill.
However, I always include ONE Lindt chocolate bunny.
It’s a tradition that started in Chris’s family and I love it. Here is a round up of this years easter basket goodies. Hopefully this makes shopping a little easier for you too!
Here is the link to our large easter baskets (i use the same one for each kid) year after year.
They are the perfect size for gifting the outfits and toys. I also love our custom monogramed basket liners. They make the easter baskets very personal and my kids look forward to getting them each year. Use code: REMINGTON for 15% off your custom liner order. You can choose your favorite fonts and ribbons and customize their names however you like.
Burnt orange and mauve ruffle dresses – I like that this dress comes in multiple colors. That way the girls can coordinate, but not be too matchy-matchy.
Boys’ suspender set – With the suspenders, hat, and bow tie, this set will make any Easter Sunday outfit look dapper.
Heart dress set – Isn’t this just the cutest little outfit?!
Girls’ Mary Jane flats – These are a classic holiday shoe and just good to have around in the girls’ closets.
Pink gingham outfit – I love everything about this. The pink, the pattern, the ruffles, it’s all perfect!
Boys’ pants – Great, simple slacks that are dressier than jeans and perfect for Easter Service.
Blue and white dress shirts – These are just nice to have on-hand for any occasion!
Boys’ dress shoes – I love how these perfectly match the suspender set!
Floral dress set – This set comes with two dress, which makes dressing two girls so easy!
Boys’ tie – An easy, already tied tie, so you won’t have to worry about it coming undone before you get the family picture you want.
Gray and brown bunny boots – These would be a huge hit with the girls. I love that they are festive without being cheesy, and can be worn after Easter.
