Eric and I have been having a lot of fun brainstorming the perfect Easter basket gift ideas for Mia! We definitely don't plan on making the basket a big deal as we want to focus on the real reason for celebrating Easter- Christ's resurrection- and last year we created a perfectly simple basket for Mia! This year we are basically giving her things we were already buying for her so her basket will be a bit more "plentiful" than in the years to come. But we figured we could get away with it now since she is an only child, and she won't remember this to compare in years to come :)
here. We were at a friend's house a couple weeks ago and Mia played with a tea set for the first time with her little friend and goodness, our hearts melted! She was absolutely in love with it all and couldn't even part with it to eat dinner :) So we bought this already and will probably throw it in her basket... leaving no room for anything else, ha!
2 is found here and here. Am I the only one who thinks little girl nightgowns are as dreamy as the actual dress ups these days?! I fear that if we introduced these nightgowns to Mia, she would never wear any other clothing... ever again! Ha ha! We will probably wait until summer and let Mia pick out her first nightgown, but we are mighty tempted to sneak one in her basket!
3 is found here. Mia is pretty obsessed with puzzles these days and the animals just scream spring time to me :) I don't think I would be able to resist snagging a new puzzle if I could find the perfect Easter/Spring peg puzzle!
4 is found here. You guessed it! These have been bought as well! I'm the kind of mom that thinks homemade finger paint is the BEST idea, but is far too lazy to actually go through with making our own. So Crayola to Mia's rescue ;) ha ha! I'm saving the finger paint for this summer when it's just too hot to go outside anymore (we are already getting pretty darn close- it's supposed to be 97 degrees on Saturday. kill me now!) and need lots of activities to keep us from going crazy inside :)
I am getting so excited for Easter! I can't believe it's a week and a half away! Let the Easter fun begin!!
