While I haven’t really given much thought to which holiday I like next best after Christmas, I’d have to say it is probably Easter. I don’t know if its the addicting mini-eggs talking (seriously, what is in those things?!) or the fact that signs of spring are popping up all around, or maybe it’s because baskets are just a spring version of Christmas stockings, am I right?
I love putting together sweet little baskets for the kids! I mix in a few quality toys, like the wooden play camera from Smile Tree Toys or Calico critters, (which I know the girls will love for their dollhouse!), along with things we will always use, like bows, bubbles, bath bombs, and sidewalk chalk!
The girls always get a holiday book– after Easter we put these books away until the following year and it’s fun to have a special holiday book collection to bring out each year. Spring accessories– usually socks and hair clips– are always a win too. And of course we can’t forget a few little treats, we love these pretty little chocolate eggs and Annie’s organic fruit snacks and how cute are those vintage little tins for stuffing with treats?

What do you put in your kids’ baskets? I hope you enjoy these sweet items as much as we do! xo
