2023 Easter Gift Ideas

It’s that season again… Easter is right around the corner. Today I’m here to share some great ideas for your Easter baskets for 2023!

Some items featured in this post were provided to me free of charge for testing purposes. As always, all opinions are my own!

Easter is fast approaching and I want to share what I’m putting in my daughters’ Easter baskets. These fantastic toys would also make great Easter gifts for many little boys as well. 

My strategy this year is to go for lots of outdoor toys mixed with some of their favorite brands, which are always a huge hit. I’m also including some toys and activities that will work on fine motor skills. I’m not adding too much chocolate, because I don’t want to deal with the sugar high!

Easter Basket Ideas for Kids:

So without further ado, here are my top picks for Easter basket ideas for 2023:

Gazillion Bubbles Burstin’ Bubble Cloud

Like every child, my girls love to play with bubbles. And a parent, I know that one of two things will happen. Either my kids spill all their bubbles, or I end up being the one who has to blow them. Well take your Easter basket up a notch with Gazillion Bubbles Burstin’ Bubble Cloud. This bubble machine can create regular bubbles OR use Gazillion Bubbles top secret “super solution,” and watch as tons of amazing cloud bubbles appear! Innovative technology creates safe, non-toxic cloud bubbles made from water vapor!  Be sure to stock up on refills, because your kids will want to play with this toy every day!

Squishmallow blind

Squishville Mystery Mini Squishmallows

Every parent knows Squishmallows are the hottest stuffy around. With over 24 ultra-squeezable plushes to collect, these make for the perfect addition to your kiddo’s Squishmallows collection! Not only are they small and cute, but are also compatible with Squishville playsets. Perfect for Easter morning!

Magical mixies

LOL Spring

L.O.L. Surprise! OMG Sunshine Makeover Dolls

I don’t know about you, but my elementary school-aged daughter just loves LOL dolls. The NEW Sunshine Makeover Dolls are perfect for Spring. Head outdoors, sunny or cloudy, or even indoors next to a window, and check out her glamorous makeover. Watch the dramatic hair and fashion colour change surprises reveal and repeat it as many times as you want!

Make It Mini Food™ Diner Series 1 Minis - MGA's Miniverse, Blind Packaging, DIY, Resin Play, Collectors - image 1 of 6

Miniverse Make It Mini Foods

Another fabulous Easter gift I know my kiddos will love is Miniverse Make It Mini Diner & Café collection (Series 1). It is the only mini food collectible that you can actually make and display AND each package comes with a surprise!

Little Live Pets: Sunny the Bright Light Chameleon - image 1 of 6

Little Live Pets Bright Light Chameleon

Little Live Pets is an interactive world and this is its newest member! Celebrate Easter morning with Nova,  an interactive, light-up chameleon with over 30+ sounds and emotions. Play your favorite music tunes and watch as Nova lights up to the beat of the song! So much fun!

Playmobil my figures

Playmobil: My Figures

I love this new initiative from Playmobil, which celebrates Diversity Month right along with Easter. Playmobil’s My Figures allow children to use their creativity to shape a Playmobil world entirely to their individual experiences and ideas.  My Figures playsets interchangeability allow for more than 1,000 different figure configurations! 


Melissa and Dough ABC Puzzle

As a teacher, I know it’s never to young to expose children to the alphabet. This ABC Puzzle from Melissa and Doug will provide exposure to the alphabet shapes in a fun play-based setting.


Crayola Window Cling Makers

We bought a similar Crayola kit for a cousin for last Christmas and my daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it since. I know she’ll be thrilled when she gets her very own kit this year. I’m guessing we’ll have gel forms all over the house come Easter Monday!


Fancy Nancy Books

I love Fancy Nancy books and so do my girls! My oldest loves the funny stories and empathizes with Fancy Nancy’s love of all things ornate. My youngest loves looking at the beautifully illustrated pictures in the books. I love that Fancy Nancy books are wonderful for vocabulary development. 


Karen Katz Books

Karen Katz books are perfect for babies and young toddlers. Their lift-the-flap style is super engaging for babies. The expressive faces of the babies featured are so cute! For Easter, we’re giving our youngest Baby Loves Springtime.

Melissa and Doug Career Magnetivity 

I don’t know about you, but I’m so sick of princess or fashion model dress up sets! I love that this career-focused dress up set is unisex and focused on meaningful careers instead of superfluous clothing. I want my girls to know it’s what’s inside that counts, not the way you look or the clothes you wear.


Melissa and Doug Made by Me Magnets

Crafts are crucial in a time like this. They’re a great distraction for when we feel cooped up in the house. I love the Created by Me series from Melissa and Doug because it really puts power into children’s hands to become creators and create useful items.


Melissa and Doug Bird House Craft Kit

Another Created by Me set from Melissa and Doug, this one is a Bird Feeder. It’s such a cute kit and perfect for spring!




The scrunchy rage has transcended adults and has sweeping even preschoolers now. My oldest is jonesin’ for a scrunchy so she’s getting her heart’s desire for Easter! I got a locally made scrunchy for my daughter, but these ones have a similar look.


Rain Gear

Rain gear is always a go-to for us at Easter time. A new rain slicker, boots and splash pants are always crowd pleasers at Easter. This year I’m debating getting a Muddy Buddy for my puddle-loving youngest this year as well. 



Swimsuits are another staple in my girls’ baskets. Might as well get them now and be prepared for June! I love one piece rash guards for swimming outside because they provide great sun protection!


Well moms, those are my top picks for Easter Basket ideas for little girls! I hope this helps you on your search for the perfect Easter basket!
