29 Easter Gifts So Good, We Swear: You’ll Want These for Yourself

Easter basket, stocked.

By Hannah Zahner

One of my favorite memories from growing up is how intentional my mom was with creating traditions. On Valentine’s Day, she hosted a little crafting party for our friends. Christmas meant cookie baking and tree hunting complete with hide-and-go-seek and ice cream (if that doesn’t say Texas winter). And for Easter, she always organized basket hunting on Easter morning. Our baskets would include gifts specific to each child and their interests—from books to art supplies, lego sets to nail polish, and of course some treats, too. Now that my mom has set the bar so high, I’m on the hunt for great Easter gifts for kids that can also double as games and activities to bring a smile to our little bunnies on this special holiday.

Ages 0-2

Slumberkins Blueberry Sloth Snuggler

Designed to support emotional growth, this stuffed animal and book set goes way beyond cute. As someone who’s gifted many a Slumberkin to nieces and nephews, believe me when I say: these are beyond soft. And the interactive story, “Let’s Go! With Sloth” encourages connection and play. While the snuggler is intended for ages 0-2, if you have older littles, selecting the “kin” option is your best choice.

What’s great:

  • The softest stuffed animal/lovey we’ve ever snuggled (seriously)
  • Machine washable
  • Book and affirmation card were written by therapists and educators

Colored Organics Organic Lovey Bunny

Meet your little one’s new best friend. This lovey is made of 100% organic cotton—meaning soft snuggles for months to come. We also love that it’s intentionally designed with non-toxic, sustainable materials, so even infants with sensitive skin can get cozy.

MiniOlie Baby Carrot Plush Hooded Romper

They’ll love cuddling up in this cute and perfect-for-spring romper. Be sure to take lots of pictures.

What’s great:

  • Comes in five different sizes

What’s not:

  • Size 3-6M is currently out of stock; as is the Brick Red colorway
  • Made of 100% polyester—we would have preferred a more sustainable, softer fabric

Pottery Barn Kids Organic Jack Muslin Drool Bib Set

Functional and fun, this bib set is soft and durable (key)—meaning each bib can absorb even the drippiest messes.

  • Fine embroidery adds a thoughtful touch of character

What’s not:

  • Pillow is spot clean only—not ideal for toddler messes and sticky hands

Babiators The Daisy Sunglasses

These sunglasses are one of the many children’s accessories we wish would come in adult sizes. (Seriously, we’d be rocking these all the time!) Not only will your kiddo be styling, but their eyes will be protected thanks to the UV400 lenses that offer 100% UVA and UVB protection.

Ages 9-11

I discovered OMY when I was living in Paris and though I was a student with an au pair’s salary, I happily invested my hard-earned dollars buying every last one of the company’s I-could-do-this-for-hours coloring activities.

IYKY—gratitude journaling is one of the best things we can do for our wellness. Kids, included!
