There’s nothing more adorable than a toddler enjoying their first official Easter egg hunt, one hand gripping a pastel-hued basket (almost as big as they are!) as they teeter around, wide-eyed, in search of hidden treats. And while freshly tottering around the backyard or community park as part of an egg-hunting tradition is the kind of heirloom-quality, photo-ready opportunity parents dream about, for kids, it’s only warm up for the main event: the gift that the Easter Bunny has hippity-hopped to their house.
Every year, though, it seems that toddler Easter gifts remain largely the same: a new stuffed friend, maybe a carrot-themed headband or bowtie, and–if you're lucky—some egg shakers or other musical toys. If you’re looking to expand the gift range of everyone’s favorite fictional cottontail beyond sugary marshmallow chicks and hollow chocolate bunnies this year, there are plenty of Easter gifts for toddlers that break out of the springtime-themed mold. Whether your little one is a budding reader and looking to expand their library, or already enjoys a life of self-care luxury and needs some bath soaks tailored to their sensitive toddler skin, a Cratejoy subscription is the Easter gift for toddlers that continues giving long after all the plastic glitter eggs have been found.
