Slumberkins Picks: Easter Basket Ideas

Easter is the perfect time to put thoughtful gifts in the basket. We’ve curated some of our favorite picks for a basket that makes little ones excited and that you feel GOOD about giving this Easter! Read more to see our faves.

With Spring officially here, Easter will soon be upon us! Some of our most fond memories with our kiddos involve presenting them with an Easter basket full of goodies – and we know a lot of other parents out there do the same.

So we thought it would be fun to put together a list of some unique, fun, and meaningful Easter gifts to help you build the sweetest Easter basket around!


Here are some great and thoughtful Easter basket ideas that we love:

Slumberkins Easter Basket 

Heirloom Easter Basket – It all starts with a great basket. It may seem a little silly to put much thought or money into the basket itself, but much like stockings at Christmas, your child will enjoy seeing their special basket year after year! Pottery Barn Kids offers some adorable baskets, with the option to personalize the liner with an embroidered name. Here is a stylish and unisex metal basket that is bound to stand the test of time! If Target is more your thing (hey, we love Target too), then here’s another metal basket that’s super cute – and only five bucks!


Art Supplies – We couldn’t pass up this Easter egg chalk! It’s seriously the cutest thing ever. Indoor art more your thing? Here are some egg stamps and a cool fingerprint art set that’s bound to impress your budding Picasso.


Board Books – Babies, toddlers, and little kids alike all love a good board book! Here’s a sweet, tactile bunny book for babies and toddlers. There’s also this classic for all ages, and this one, too. Any of our Sleepytime Rhymes board books are always a great choice, as they provide the added benefit of sensory learning while teaching various social-emotional life skills.


Wooden Toys – Wooden toys stand the test of time, and are naturally anti-bacterial, too. We love the intention behind Little Sapling Toys, who plant a tree for every product sold! Our Easter basket picks are their bunny teether, paintable eggs, and woodland animal play set.


Easter Moccasins – Egg huntin’ gear fit for your little peeps! We love Freshly Picked and can’t wait to surprise our little ones with the Hops and Peeps moccs – so adorable!


All-Natural Bath Goodies – After all the treats and running around hunting for Easter eggs, you can whip up a sweet-smelling bubble bath, throw in a natural rubber bath toy (loving this bunny!) and get your little ones squeaky clean and ready for bedtime! We have the Tubby Sweets Bundle tucked into our kids’ baskets this year, and we fully intend to steal a little for ourselves, too!


Slumberkins, of course! We may be biased, but we think there’s nothing cuter than a cheery Sleepy Peep poking out from your child's Easter basket. If you didn't manage to snag one before they sold out, never fear! Violet Slumber Sloth, Sunkissed Bigfoot, Silken Yeti, or the beautiful Rose Fox are a few other favorites from our Spring Release.

We’d love to see how you’re incorporating Slumberkins into your Easter baskets this year! Tag us and use #SlumberkinsEaster on social media.


We hope these ideas inspire you to put together a more intentional Easter basket for your little ones! But remember – while all this stuff is great – it’s the time spent with YOU that your children will remember for years to come. So take a deep breath, focus on the present, and enjoy the day with your family and loved ones.

    So I got my grandson his first Slumberkin. He fell in love. It’s the Hammerhead AKA Sharky. My daughter says he has a nervous breakdown during bath time because he wants to take the Hammerhead in the bath. They talk and figure it out, and he gets him back once bath time is over. Just curious if in the near future we could possibly see a bath time friendly slumberkin. I ordered back up hammerheads in case mom loses and the grandson takes them swimming. 🤗
