Spring is here (finally) and I'm so excited to share our little ones Easter Baskets! I can still hardly believe that I just said baskets instead of basket, it's just the best being a mama to two! I had such a fun time putting these baskets together this year, I went super simple and minimal and I just LOVE how they turned out!

Before Bodhi was born we got him a Blabla kids hand knit doll because I just had a feeling he'd love them. Well, turns out, he loves it even more than I thought he would. His Toutou the dog goes all over our home with him, he's constantly hugging his puppy and usually falls asleep hugging him tightly or holding his paw. It's truly one of the most precious sights, I'm actually thinking of getting him a mini toutou to keep in the car so he'll always have his puppy with him! This Easter I wanted to add to his little collection since he loves his first one so much, so this time I chose Figaro the bird. I just love the bright colors, it's the perfect doll for spring and summer and I can't wait to give this one to him, I know he's going to love it. Bella is also a big fan of Blabla Kids, and loves her dolls from them as well. Currently she's into all things rainbows and unicorns and pink, so this pink rainbow knit pillow is going to be perfect for her and I already can't wait to hear her specious squeals and hear her say "I don't like it, I LOVE it" as she usually does when she really loves something.

Is there anything better than babies in bonnets? I'm pretty sure there isn't. I think we can  also agree that Briar Handmade is the best when it comes to bonnets (each Briar bonnet is proudly hand sewn in the Pacific Northwest right here in the USA), which is why I'm of course including one in Bodhi's basket this year! Their new Bebe Shoreline collection has the prettiest neutrals and soft earthy colors, the Ivory Bandit bonnet is pretty much to die for too. The perfect springtime bonnet!

Wooden toys are some of my most favorite. I love the heirloom quality, the natural feel, the neutral timeless look, and most importantly, I feel they foster such a love of simple play and use of the imagination! A few years back, we got Bella the Spell Well wooden name puzzle from Smiling Tree Toys, so naturally it seemed fitting to get Bodhi one of his own this year for his first Easter basket, the spell well name puzzles are so fun for little ones to play with, but they also double as great room decor! The Smiling Moon Balancer wooden toy is a toy that is going to see so much playtime in our home, I may have already let Bella play with it a time or two haha, and she LOVES it, she's going to love when we "officially" give it to her on Easter. I also grabbed a couple of wooden teethers for Bodhi, because, well, teething is here. He teeths on practically everything, so I thought maybe an actual teether or two might come in handy, I mean, how I could I pass up two teethers as adorable as this Easter egg one or this personalized alphabet teether? Each item that Smiling Tree Toys creates is hand made right here in the US, in rural Minnesota, and I also love that for every item sold, they donate to Peace Corps youth development programs!

Pajamas are one of my favorite gifts for my kiddos, Bella loves choosing a pair of pajamas every night before bed and I love seeing her get excited over which pajamas she's going to choose! Tea Collection is of course one of our favorite clothing brands, and these ice cream print shirt pajamas are buttery soft, perfect for summer with their super fun print and so adorable!

Tubby Todd is a huge part of our daily routine, it's our go-to brand for baby hair and body wash, lotion and of course bubble bath, it's also one of my favorite things to always include in Easter baskets! Their new spring bundle this year is the best! Spring Floral hair and body wash, Lemon Creme everyday lotion, and Sweet Berry bubble bath... I can't decide which one smells most amazing. My favorite thing though is that they're made with all natural and organic ingredients, plant based fragrances, gluten and dairy free, certified animal cruelty free, made in the USA, safe for all skin types including the most sensitive skin types and free of toxins, parabens, sulfates and bpa. Oh! And mamas, the everyday lotion is something you definitely need in your life! It's all I use for my own dry skin these days and it's perfect for pampering your little ones AND yourself!

Literature is a big part of our little ones lives, it's so important to me that my kiddos read and love books. Of course Babylit books are some of our forever favorites. The perfect way to introduce little ones to classic literature, all of the greats, Pride and Prejudice, Moby Dick, Sherlock Homes, Little Women, as well as all the other book collections they have... the list could go on and on, we have so many good ones in our book collection from Babylit. I especially love that the illustrations are bright and inviting and the words are simple to keep the attention of my kiddos who don't always have the longest attention spans. They've just released a few new titles and I can't wait to give them to Bella and Bodhi in their Easter baskets this next week! I chose a few titles this time around that we haven't read before, this National Parks book from the All Aboard Series, this fun Gotta Go Buffalo book, and this The Adventures of John Muir book and John James Audubon Painted Birds book both from the new Little Naturalists book series!
