One of my favorite things about being a first-time mom is getting to experience so many of my son’s firsts. Holidays are some of the best firsts around and I try to make them as special as possible without going overboard on an infant’s first holiday.
I jumped at the chance to order Hudson’s Easter basket and wanted to make sure that I wasn’t scrambling at the last minute. I ordered all of our Christmas stockings from Pottery Barn Kids because they had a cute collection of stockings that included two older-looking and more adult stockings in addition to the fun Sugar Plum Fairy and Santa Claus stocking. We were really pleased with them, so I was excited to order Hudson’s basket from PBKids, too.
We chose the green basket liner with the bunnies and got it monogrammed. I ordered him the small basket in Espresso.
Then we got to help the Easter Bunny stuff the basket. I obviously can’t ask the Easter Bunny to give a 10 month old (he’ll be 10 months old by Easter) chocolate and Cadbury Mini Eggs, so I had to get creative. This is his completed and stuffed Easter basket.
Hudson loves books, so the Easter Bunny chose these wonderful books for him. The kids department at Nordstrom always has a great collection of seasonal children’s books, so I picked out a few cute options there.

We found a cute pair of bunny ears and a sweater knit stuffed bunny from Pottery Barn Kids. We also got him a couple of Baby’s First Easter bibs from Target. And because I don’t see much point in dying Easter eggs for a baby who can’t eat eggs for three more months, we picked up some plastic eggs to fill his basket.
If there’s a little one in your life, what will you put in his or her Easter basket this year? Any suggestions for me for the future?
