Last Easter Mason was a day away from seven months old. So the usual basket of Reese’s peanut butter eggs and Lindt chocolate bunnies were out of the question. I had to get a little creative instead of following tradition.

  • An assortment of rattles. Just a couple to fill in some space.
  • Some bathtub toys. I chose some animals that squirted water when you squeezed them.
  • Baby Mum Mums, they’re a teething biscuit that babies seem to love. Mason liked the banana flavored.
  • Gerber puffs, similar to cereal but they dissolve quickly in a drooly baby’s mouth. Strawberry apple and banana were tops on his list of faves.
  • I threw in a few jars of baby food for filler.
  • A hooded beach towel
  • A beach hat
  • Sunscreen

This year he isn’t so limited but I still don’t want to give him a giant basket of chocolate and jelly beans.

  • Harmonica, he loves anything that makes noise
  • A cup with a straw
  • Crayola Color Wonder Paint Pallette so he can channel his inner Van Gogh. (Without the whole ear thing.)
  • Crayola washable crayons, and paints and a sketch pad.
  • A plastic Slinky
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies

Hershey’s Drops, just a few in a plastic egg. He’s energetic enough, he doesn’t need added sugar. 


We also picked up a Radio Flyer tricycle for him. We ended up giving it to him early though.
