Easter Basket Shopping

For a few weeks now I’ve wondered what kind of Easter basket to have for William. Part of me, the part that bought custom shirts for our honeymoon, and special ornaments for our first year together as Mr. and Mrs. and then custom My First Christmas ornaments for William, had debated getting a similar Easter basket. I saw this on Amazon and was thisclose to pushing the button to buy it.

Yet something stopped me. I went back and read the reviews and saw how very tiny this item was, about half the size of a water bottle. That was clearly not what I had in mind.

So, I walked around stores looking for just the right basket. Many stores have great big baskets full of toys that are perfect, if your child is quite a bit older than mine. If I was buying for an older kid, the firefighter set would be amazing.

Every year I hoped the Easter Bunny would bring me a large basket of toys like this. It took a lot of willpower to not buy quite a few of these, to save for when the time is right to give one to William.

It soon became apparent that there really aren’t huge baskets of Easter toys for infants. Even this basket has too much glitter to bring in a house with a cat and a baby.

So I decided perhaps I’d just get something that could be reused as a basket of another sort. I finally decided on this one as it looked sturdy and had plastic vegetables in fruit in it that he could use at a later time for toys.

I had a blast putting together his Easter basket full of fun toys including a few things with some educational usage. It’s amazing how one thing will go especially well with an item his Godmother sent to him.
