List of the best Easter Gifts for boys

Easter Baskets by theme: bunny or interests

One of my favorite parts of assembly an Easter gift basket for boys is selecting a theme!

For Easter, it's an easy choice to opt for an Easter bunny theme; but you can also choose to create the perfect unique Easter basket based on their interests!

Whether that's a Paw Patrol Easter basket:

Or dinosaurs, Disney, or nature based Easter gift ideas for children:

Regardless of the theme, I do still like to include a small nod to the Easter bunny as a festive touch to the day; whether that's through the basket or a personalized tag:

Egg-citing Easter Activities

Of course Easter day is filled with Easter egg hunts, but I also like to include some simple Easter themed art supplies and activities in their baskets.

This doesn't need to be anything fancy, it could be basic craft supplies, washable markers, washable paint in different colors, or sidewalk chalk.

Alternatively, consider including sticker books or fidget toys that he can enjoy under the fresh air and sunshine or while waiting for Easter brunch or services. These additions will provide endless entertainment and help develop his motor skills.

Not only is this great for their development and working on fine motor skills or other things, but it gives parents a little break while their child works on it.

Outdoor Fun

Easter and Spring are so closely tied, that I use my kids Easter baskets as an Spring Refresh for whatever they'll need for the new season.

This could be new beach toys, bathing suit, water bottles, rain boots, etc.


Including a board book in your toddler boy's Easter basket is a fantastic addition.

You can opt for a book about the story of easter, or choose a book with colorful illustrations and a simple storyline that captures his attention.

As kids get a little older, I like to opt for longer books with a Spring themed or deeper morals/values.

Reading together not only enhances language and vocabulary development but also creates a special bonding experience.

Toddler Bathtime Bliss

With the change of season comes more time outside, and more time in the bath! A great option for non-candy Easter basket ideas are bath toys. Add a set of colorful bath bombs, fun washable paint for the tub, or even a special boats. These thoughtful additions will transform a mundane part of the day into a fun-filled adventure.
