Hanna Andersson has super cute spring outfits (hannaandersson.com) but their socks (though they are the BEST baby socks in the world!) are just plain solid colors. Gap has some cute baby socks in stripes and prints that I've found will stay on my son's feet all day. I get so annoyed by socks that slide right back off. Hanna socks are by far the world's best baby socks for anyone who hasn't tried them.



Oh, I forgot about putting an easter book in the basket! What a great idea!

I haven't really thought about Easter yet. But I really like the ideas and thoughts that I have seen here. I wonder if I could find some really cute easter or springy type of socks. Even maybe a springy type of outfit and a bunny. I like the idea of the biter biscuits and stuff too.

We get those coloured plastic eggs that open up and put little things in them like Cheerios, crackers, rice puffs, hair clips, socks... and hide them in the most obvious spots (like smack-dab in the middle of the floor). She won't get it really this first year, but it gives us a chance to have fun and practice her colours and hiding/finding things. My niece and nephew do this every year, too and love it! We re-use the eggs each year when they visit and for my other nephew, too.

For Christmas, instead of candy in her stocking, I filled my daughters with little baby snacks such as cereal, cereal fruit bars, bitter biscuits, ect. To make them more Christmasy, I just put them in little holiday gift bags and/or put ribbons on them. She loved it! You could put the same sort of things in a basket. For my son's first easter, we did a stuffed bunny which he now sleeps with every night, and a book (The Velvetine Rabbit) to go with it. We plan to do the a stuffed chick or lamb for my daughter with a book as well.

When I was growing up my brother and I always got a stuffed bunny in our basket so I will do that but I am not sure other than that.  I like the socks idea...sometimes Target has cute socks in the front $1 section.

I read somewhere that someone with a baby too young for candy put a new pair or two of socks in their Easter basket and that it eventually became a family tradition for everyone to get fun, colorful socks in their basket. I thought that was cute so I'm going to do that too, I think. (Now to find some cute socks...) I also had been thinking that since all my son's clothes are for winter (long sleeved, dark colors) that maybe I'd get him a short sleeved springy shirt (maybe green) to fold up in the bottom of the basket to take the place of the grass. He's got so many toys I might just get him one little inexpensive thing to put in there and maybe a new sippy cup since he needs one anyway. I'd love to hear fun ideas from others in case there is something cute I could do.
