Best Easter Gifts for Babies

Updated by Sarah Baird

Springtime blows in each year with a whooshing of fresh-green buds on trees, crocus popping up out of once-scraggly patches of grass, and sunshine-laced, bird-chirping life after the frigid bareness of winter has passed. The optimistic resurgence of plants and animals after dormancy also points to spring as a time particularly welcoming for celebrating new births—animal, plant, and human.

Babies and springtime go hand-in-hand, so it’s no wonder that Easter is a highly-anticipated holiday for families who are eager to dress their newest bundle of joy in gentle, snuggly pastels and fill their bunny-given baskets with adorably-fuzzy stuffed critters, colorful books, and hand-me-down-ready heirloom toys.

If building a Pinterest-worthy Easter basket for the new baby in your life feels like a daunting task, though, Cratejoy subscription boxes are here to assist in the curation process whether you’re searching for mommy-and-me presents, the latest helpful gadgets, or ultra-soft, organic outfits perfect for a season of picnics, parks, and ample tummy time.
