Some Boy’s first Easter AND his first birthday are coming up this month, so it’s gonna be a busy one for us! I’m just glad he wasn’t born on Easter. I don’t think I could handle that much festivity in one day.
I was determined not to spend too much on his first Easter basket, so we piled into the car and headed to Kmart to check out their #KmartEaster goodies. I like that Kmart has a lot of stuff at a great price AND they have weekly sales advertised in their circular, plus I get extra discounts as a member of their Shop Your Way rewards program. I also scope out deals on their Twitter and Facebook accounts. We ended up getting everything for his first Easter basket (including a necessity or two that I’ve been meaning to pick up for him anyway) for less than $30.
I know a lot of my friends are thinking, “He’s a baby! What on earth do you put in a baby‘s Easter basket?” A lot, actually. And here’s a secret that your stealthy parents never revealed: Easter baskets aren’t just for kids. Yeah, I snuck a thing or two in there for Nate and I. You don’t think Some Boy’s going to eat all those Peeps himself, do you?
Aside from candy, Easter baskets can be filled with all sorts of healthy treats and fun stuff like DVDs and toys. We picked up a Sesame Street DVD (he loves the musical compilation ones), a stuffed bunny with cute bendy ears, and some bubbles. Oh yeah, I put a sippy cup in there, too. What? If
my mom the Easter Bunny can put toothbrushes in my stocking, I can put a sippy cup in Some Boy’s first Easter basket. Not like he’ll know the difference, anyway.
And how cute is that little green duck? Some Boy’s birthday party later in the month is going to be rubber ducky themed, so I’ve slowly been collecting cute ducks whenever I come across them. We even have a pirate duck that Nate picked up at Walmart.
Happy Easter! What’s your favorite thing to find in an Easter basket?
