Easter is coming up fast, landing on April 4th this year, meaning there may be quite a few collective gasps when the calendar is flipped to the next month. I know you may not have the time to leisurely shop for the perfect Easter basket items, so I’ve done a little hopping around to some of my favorite shops for you.
KangarooBoo has loads of neat Easter basket treats for little ones like the too-cute Skip Hop Funky Farm See Me Bunny Mirror and the wooden Threading Animal Rabbit by Estia (at top). If you are a game-loving family, don’t miss the great deal on HABA’s Easter Benny Bunny game. [Updated to add: KangarooBoo has shut down. Try Amazon for two different HABA products: Bunny Roly Poly and Bunny Hugo Clutching Figure, both pictured at very top.]
I’ve fallen in love with loads of items from Craftsbury Kids, like Little Alouette’s Wooden Egg Shaker Rattlefor babies, the adorable Plush Matryoshka Dolls from England’s Beaky and the pretty Green Apple Hair Clip from Lily Pottery. [Updated to add: Craftsbury Kids has shut down]
Speaking of hair accessories, girlie girls love them. There’s a great selection of springy felt hair clips from wonderful brands like Giddy Giddy all at Chloe in Style, most under $10 each.
If you want to hear “The Easter Bunny knows my name!“, check out Frecklebox’s many affordable and yet totally personalized items like their fun Sticker Sheets, Puzzles and, for older kids, Journals.
My tween still looks forward to her Easter basket and I know she’d love a little String Doll from Kamibashi sitting atop her sweets–they even have a little Luv Bird. I also love Kamibashi’s crazy DEBO Rabbit Superheroes and their gorgeous, sophisticated Japanese Stickers printed on Japanese Washi paper or foil for older kids.
Even though the seasons are totally different, you may even find some great ideas in our Stocking Stuffers post — except maybe skip the chocolate Santas.
