27 Amazing Easter Gift Ideas For Kids and Toddlers

Easter is a wonderful time for kids, and we’re sure your kids will be wondering what the Easter Bunny left for them in the house. Besides the old-school chocolate candies and books, we’ve made things interesting this season. If you’re looking for interesting Easter gift ideas for toddlers or fun gifts, you’ve come to the right place.

Wonderful Kids Easter Gift Baskets

Here is a list of fun Easter gifts for toddlers below. We’ve carefully reviewed each idea so you can rest assured that there’s something for your child, no matter what his interests are.

Gifts for Toddlers 

Toddlers have lots of energy and are always crawling around everywhere. If you want to give them creative, thoughtful, and playful gifts, these Easter gifts will indulge their curiosity and let them explore the world around them more.

1. DIY Easter Basket 

DIY Easter Basket 

Make your own DIY Easter gift basket by cutting out pieces of fabric and wrapping them around a bucket. Fill up the bucket with your child’s favourite goodies, and make sure you include some candy. You can get creative with the fabric design for the bucket but make sure you use non-toxic glue for sticking it on, just in case. This is a great Easter basket idea for toddlers.

2. ABC Flash Cards 

ABC Flashcards are fun, coloured cards with pictures on top that teach kids how to read and spell. You can make your own at home or simply buy a deck from the store. Customise these by attaching them to a reusable ring so that you can shuffle the cards for an added challenge. These are also the best easter gifts for a 2-year-old if you’re shopping for young tots for the first time.

3. Bathtub Crayons and Markers 

Who doesn’t love colouring and going on a creative spree in the bathroom? If your tiny tot struggles to stay still and fidgets, get him this for Easter. It’s lots of fun, but make sure you get a colouring book while you’re at it. Bathtub crayons and markers are always non-toxic and easy to clean up, so the brand doesn’t matter as long as ‘bathtub’ or ‘bathtime’ is mentioned on the label.

4. Breathable Animal Plushies 

Breathable Animal Plushies 

Sometimes toddlers want to give their best friends a big tight hug. Get your child breathable bunny plushies or any animal plushies. Go for neutral colours since they go well with the interiors, and make sure it’s at least over 11-inches tall since you want them to be super comfy and cuddly.

5. Toddler Art Books 

Toddlers love their cartoons so getting any of their favourite characters as an art book will make them leap with joy. Introducing art projects to your baby in early life will also help creative development, which is a win-win.

6. Sunglasses 

You might think we’re kidding with this, but we’re not. If you take your toddler to the beach often or plan to, you should get him a pair of sunglasses. These come with a pouch and strap, with the frame being crafted using bendable material, thus making it toddler-safe.

7. Kids’ Jewellery Boxes 

Kids' Jewellery Boxes 

Yes, there are jewellery kits available for toddlers. These come with non-toxic beads, strings, and safe materials. Ignite your child’s creativity and help them flourish by getting them one of these. This is a great Easter basket idea for girls.

8. Egg Toy Kits

Look for ones that let you crack and pop open the eggs to reveal goodies. If you can’t find a decent brand, you can make your very own ones at home using non-toxic colouring dyes and hard-boiled eggs.

9. Candy Sushi Boxes 

If you’d like to share your love for sushi with your baby, gift him a candy sushi box this Easter. The treats are made from rice crispies, and these boxes also include treats that look like wasabi and soy sauce. They will love it and ask for more pretty soon.

10. Picture Reading Books 

Picture Reading Books 

Want your toddler to have fun and speak more? Get him a good picture reading book. We recommend anything that has tons of dinosaurs, monster trucks, and pages brimming with magical adventures. The pages should be thick so that they don’t tear up.

11. Bunny Hooded Bath Towel

A practical, soft, and sweet bunny bath towel makes for a perfect gift for toddlers. The towel will keep your little kid snuggly and warm after bath time.

Fill up the jugs with goodies and set them up in the house for your kids to discover.
