This year, Easter Sunday falls on April Fool’s Day, but your little one’s Easter Basket will be no joke with these great gift ideas that kids love!
Soft and Cuddly
Every Easter Basket needs something soft and cuddly, and there is nothing softer than a Jellycat! Kids love to snuggle these sweet stuffed animals, and the bunnies are the perfect addition to every Easter basket. Jellycats are perfect for every age, and the ring rattle and bunny booties make a soft and sweet addition to baby’s basket as well.
Spring is on the way, and these bunny board books from Jellycat will soon become your little one’s favorites. You’ll make great memories snuggling up with your little one while reading these sweet stories together.
Jelly Belly jellybeans are the classic candy for Easter baskets. Kids love the many different and unique flavors!

Small but Fun!
