What are the best Easter gifts for babies?

Easter is not too far away, so that makes this the best time to start shopping for Easter gifts for the babies in your life. If you’re looking for something for your own baby, a baby in the family, or a friend’s baby, I’ve got you covered on all things Easter.

I had to think back to all the fun Easter gifts that my son received for his first Easter, but fortunately I took pictures, so I can confidently give you all my favorite picks for Easter gifts for babies.

I suggest you take plenty of pictures yourself. Not only on Easter morning but all the fun events leading up to Easter. Are you coloring eggs, visiting the Easter bunny, or going on an egg hunt? Make all the memories, take a lot of pictures, and have a ton of fun. Baby firsts are things to be treasured.

How do you celebrate baby’s first Easter?

How you celebrate any first holiday, depends on the age of your baby and what he is able to do. I recommend doing all the things you remember doing on Easter when you were a kid and adding some new traditions for your family as well:

  1. Color Easter eggs. Your baby probably won’t be fishing the eggs out of the dye cups this year, but you can sit him in a highchair or on your lap while the fun is happening.
  2. Attend an Easter egg hunt. If your baby is too little to color eggs, he’s definitely too little to hunt those eggs. Which is why I’m suggesting you find an organized egg hunt in your area. Take your baby and get some pictures with a giant Easter basket, some eggs, and some beautiful spring weather.
  3. Get an Easter outfit. Easter is the holiday I remember everyone wore their best outfits. As a child of the 80’s, there’s not an Easter picture where I’m not wearing a bonnet. It’s always fun to get dressed up and be fancy, especially if you’ve spent much of baby’s first year in the house.
  4. Visit the Easter bunny. What a better picture for your little one’s first Easter than him sitting on the Easter bunny’s lap in his best outfit.
  5. Go to church. If you’re a regular churchgoer, this is part of your normal routine. But for those of you who haven’t been or are looking to get back into it, Easter is the perfect day. Yes, it’s one of the big days, but that also means there will be so many people, you can sneak in without really being noticed and kind of feel it out.
  6. Have a family dinner. With a baby, you may not be the one hosting Easter dinner, but make some time to visit family and share your baby’s first Easter with those you love most.
  7. Give an Easter gift. Candy is usually the go-to for those annual Easter baskets, but it’s not the most appropriate Easter gift for babies (or toddlers and even some school-age children). Don’t worry though, that’s where I have you covered.

Check out all the things you can do for baby’s first Easter to make it extra special.

Bath Toys

These bath boats are a great addition to baby’s bath time.

They easily wipe off and dry completely, so no mold can form, and you don’t have to worry what your baby is putting in his mouth.

If your baby is close to starting solid foods or is already eating solids, giving this puree pack as an Easter gift for babies is a good way to fill out their Easter basket. If you’re just starting on solids, try bananas first. We started with peaches and my son was not a fan of the strong flavor.

Another great Easter gift, if your baby is a little older, is snacks. Puffs have always been a huge hit in our home, even now that my son is a toddler. He loves using his snack catcher, even when we’re at home. He also enjoys Yogurt Melts and Lil’ Crunchies. Just remember to check the age range on the snacks and always supervise your kiddo during snack time.

Infantino Lil' Nibbles Textured Silicone Baby Teether - Sensory Exploration and Teething Relief with Easy to Hold Handles, Orange Carrot, 0+ Months


Babies as young as three months can start cutting teeth, so your time is coming. Small, flat teethers are easier for smaller babies to hold themselves. These teether keys are one of the favorites in our house, and your little one may enjoy the different textures. But this wouldn’t be a list of Easter gifts for babies without including this super cute carrot teether, with handles easy for baby to grasp.

The texture makes them feel most like mom and the design makes it ideal for baby’s growing mouth.
