With Easter around the corner, we are getting inundated with messages from other mamas asking for non-candy Easter Basket ideas. Well ladies, we’ve got ya covered. Here are some of our favorite ideas for Easter goodies that aren’t crammed full of sugar…not that you won’t find us hiding in the bathroom Easter morning eating bags and bags of Starburst jellybeans, but that’s neither here nor there.
Invented by a group of Moms and handmade to suit your baby’s needs, Silli Chews are available in a variety of adorable, whimsical designs (the donut teether is our fave!) and colorful, engaging patterns that children are instantly drawn to. Made from food grade silicone and free of BPA, PVC and Phthalates, Silli Chews are completely safe for babies and easy for them to grasp and squeeze. The textured surface offers extra soothing comfort for sore gums and emerging teeth. And if Baby needs some additional relief? Toss your Silli Chews teether in the freezer for some extra cooling comfort (this trick came in extra handy with our kiddos). Besides being absolutely adorable, all Silli Chews teethers can be easily attached to your Little One’s pacifier clip making it easy to keep track of, and Silli Chews teethers are top rack dishwasher safe (yay!) or easy to clean with dish soap and water. The Silli Chews teether collection will be a hit with moms and kids alike! Silli Chews will make a fun, colorful addition to your child’s Easter Basket, and we guarantee your kiddo will love them as much as ours did!

Giving your little a zillion pastel colored M&Ms at Easter isn’t really an option, but luckily there are plenty of other great options for treating your little one Easter morning. Meet Nourish Reusable Food Pouches, the easy to use, easy to clean portable food pouch.
Feeding your baby homemade food when away from home doesn’t have to be a pain. When you spend the time to make Baby’s first puree, it stands to reason that you’d want to take that wholesome food with you on the go. Nourish Reusable Food Pouches make taking your homemade purees (or Sam’s Club sized applesauce) with you super easy and convenient. These dishwasher and freezer friendly pouches have a ziploc bottom and a screw on cap, which makes for easy filling and easy cleaning. They’re also compatible with most spoon attachments on the market, which is another added perk. You can pack a whopping 5 ounces of pureed goodness into a single pouch, which is two whole servings of fruits and vegetables! That’s just as awesome as M&Ms, right? 🙂
The BPA, PVC and phthalate free plastic pouches are super durable, which means you’ll get plenty of use out of these puppies. That’s convenient for you, and great for the environment. Not only are Nourish Reusable Food Pouches super practical, but they also come in an assortment of fun and colorful patterns. Extra points for cuteness!

We recently discovered this amazing collection of natural skincare for moms and babies, and we are in love! Susan Brown’s Baby products make an excellent addition to a baby shower or Mother’s Day gift basket, or say an Easter Basket for someone so little they can’t enjoy the traditional Easter treats. We recommend the All-Purpose Botanical Gelee and Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash. The Botanical Gelee is ahhh-mazing. An all-natural and completely safe alternative to petroleum jelly, this paraben-free gelee is the perfect way to protect your little one’s tooshie from wetness and potential skin irritations. The extra gentle concoction is made from a soothing blend of shea, cocoa jojoba and moringa butters and infused with calendula, oats, chamomile and vitamin E. It’s smooths easily onto the skin and smells heavenly. Not only does it provide the perfect therapeutic barrier for Baby’s bum, it’s also great for soothing other skin problems like eczema, cradle cap and chronic dry skin. It’s truly a life saver! Susan Brown’s Baby Foaming Shampoo & Body Wash is another fantastic product from this brand, and has quickly become one of our favorite additions to bath time. This delicate tear-free foam is blended with chamomile, marigold, and oats for a relaxing bath time experience. And, like all Susan Brown’s Baby products, it’s also free of phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates and parabens. We promise your baby will appreciate these extra soothing Easter basket goodies, and you’ll love how soft and sweet your Little One’s skin is!
In addition to the Silli Chews teethers, we recommend Baby Munchables Teething Wafers from Nosh! for kids of teething age. These yummy all-natural, organic teething biscuits come in individually wrapped packages of two, which make them perfect Easter basket fillers! Baby Munchables are available in a variety of flavors like Banana & Mango, Sweet Potato & Pumpkin, and Broccoli, Pear & Kale. These easily dissolving rice snacks are great for teething gums to gnaw on, providing relief AND nutrition for your little munchkin.
If your kiddo is past the teething stage, check out Tot Munchables rice snacks. Designed with older kids in mind, Tot Munchables rice snacks are made with the same carefully chosen organic ingredients and contain the same delicious burst of natural flavors. If your kiddo is ready for solid foods, they’re ready for Tot Munchables – and trust us, they won’t be disappointed. Both Baby and Tot Munchables are the perfect no-mess, on-the-go snack, and the great variety of unique and yummy flavors make them a great option for your kiddo’s Easter basket.
What baby wouldn’t love a WubbaNub? Something that fun to say HAS to be awesome, right? Right. If you’re not familiar with the WubbaNub brand, it’s time to get acquainted. The WubbaNub is an easy-to-clean silicone pacifier attached to an even easier to cuddle plush toy. The attached plush toy makes the WubbaNub easy for little hands to grasp and hard for parents to lose track of. Especially designed for babies 0-6 months, the plush toy makes it easy for baby to direct the pacifier into his mouth and prevents it from falling out. Baby can learn self soothing at an early age with WubbaNub.
Available in a huge variety of cute and cuddly critters, there’s a WubbaNub for everyone. From caterpillars and bison to kitties, puppies and lambs, you’re sure to find a WubbaNub your child will love. The penguin was a major hit with our little one, and we’ve got our eyes on a few other adorable WubbaNub designs! Add a Wubbanub to your baby’s Easter Basket and you’re sure to please.
When it comes to Easter baskets for newborns and littler kiddos, your options can feel pretty limited. Well, what better gift to give a little one than a super awesome baby bottle? Rather than go the traditional route, we suggest trying out the lesser-known-but-soon-to-take-the-world-by-storm Flipsi bottle.
Let’s just get this out of the way: We are OBSESSED with this bottle. Like crazy obsessed. Like we may have stopped random people in stores shopping for bottles just to suggest that they look into Flipsi before purchasing another brand. That wouldn’t be weird, right?
In any case, we’re big fans of innovative baby products, and as far as innovation goes, Flipsi is one of the most unique bottles we’ve ever seen. We’ve used our fair share of bottles, and as far as ease of cleaning, Flipsi takes the cake. The bottle is made from food grade silicone and polypropylene, which makes it 100% safe for Baby, but it’s also what makes this bottle so unique. When it’s time to clean the bottle, you just remove the silicone bottle insert, flip that bad boy inside out and clean with soap and water or put it in the dishwasher. No bottle brushes. No hard to reach areas. No itty bitty parts that require equally itty bitty brushes to clean then. I mean….what mom doesn’t want a bottle that easy to clean?
Besides being super kind to moms in the cleaning department, the Flipsi is brilliant in other ways as well. That same silicone base collapses as Baby drinks to minimize air intake, thus preventing excess gas and making feeding super easy from any angle. The natural shape of the flexible nipples makes it easy for nursing babies to switch between bottle and breast, and additional nipples are available at different flow rates.
Trust us, your baby will appreciate this amazing addition to her Easter basket, and you’ll appreciate how easy it makes life for you!
