Kids can make holidays that much more fun. Or that much more stressful if you’re the one in charge of all the gifting and magic making. We know moms are at the heart of what makes holidays like Easter special, so we wanted to help. We’ve taken some of the guesswork out of what to add to your kids’ Easter baskets this year.

Religious reasons aside, there’s something special about the budding flowers, baby animals, and pastels everywhere that makes Easter such a fun holiday for babies and kids. So whether you celebrate Easter or just want a reason for little gifting or a toy refresh, we’ve put together some perfect goodies for your little ones. From baby stuffed animals and bunny pajamas to creative teethers and activities sets, these options check the cute box and can fit snuggly into an Easter basket.
