T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top (Disney!) Easter Basket Ideas

Ok first of all – I just want to go on record as saying – I don’t know when Easter became like second Christmas – but I am NOT on board with it. I see it all over social media – people who spend tons of money on putting together extravagant Easter baskets for their kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews – and it’s just nuts.

I googled “infant Easter Basket ideas” (as I have a BRAND NEW niece just born this week – ah! So exciting!) and while obviously she can’t do anything with toys yet, I wanted to put together a little something of an Easter basket for her “first Easter” – and the ideas that the internet showed me were literally the most ridiculous things ever. Toys upon toys stacked together with outfits, stuffed animals – all together in these GIANT Baskets – which were really more like bins with handles at that point – and I just wondered – when did this become what Easter is about?

Personally – I am going to stick with a small basket with a few things in it – nothing huge or fancy or expensive, and since my son is only 3, he won’t know the difference or care that his basket didn’t cost $120 and hours to assemble

Ok – now that I have successfully gotten THAT rant out – time to focus on the task at hand – filling the Easter basket! Of course, a Disney theme is always a good option…

What is more “Easter” than Mickey dressed as the Easter Bunny?

I just about died when I saw this online – and I came really close to ordering one for myself – my inner 5 year old was itching to click “Add To Cart” – as I just cannot imagine a cuter toy for a little girl’s Easter basket then an Ariel Voice Recording Necklace. Who knows – maybe the Easter Bunny will bring ME one!

Bubbles are the perfect item for almost any age – as they are fun, cheap, and a reminder that Spring is coming! This Mickey Bubble Wand is amazing – it even lights up!

It’s not just the Disney Store who offers great Easter ideas – your local big box store has tons of (budget friendly!) Easter basket items, too!

Saw this Minnie pail when I was there the other day – there was also a Mickey of course, as well as assorted plainer buckets with Mickey/Minnie/Frozen characters on them – they would be great to use at the beach in the summer! In addition to Disney buckets/pails, they had tons of other little themed items – eggs, candy filled eggs, bubbles, small toys, and much more (they really had an insane amount of stuff – worth checking out, for sure!)

While I don’t love how big Easter seems to have become over the years, I do enjoy the idea of putting together a basket for my son and niece, and am excited to get to see them enjoy the fun things I put in it! What about you – what do YOU like to put in your kid’s Easter baskets?

Stay tuned right here next week – when I will showcase some fun and easy Easter activities for the whole family!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Birthday To Me!

Today I celebrate 30 years on this fine earth – and 30 years as a Disney lover too! How will I be celebrating? Well, with a pedicure, and some dinner prepared by my man (because not only should one not have to cook on their birthday, but I am also almost 8 months pregnant – all the more reason that a foot rub and a hot meal served to me are highly appreciated luxuries these days!)

So what’s on my birthday wish list this year? Well, it may not shock you, but its chock full’o’Disney:

 TGIF Bday2

Disney Alex and Ani is pretty high on the list – they have some great new styles available now that I think would look great dangling from my wrist

TGIF Bday1

One can never have enough Disney Kitchen items, don’t you think? I love these Mickey’s Diner items – aren’t they great? Check out all the Disney Store’s Kitchenware section for more!

TGIF Bday3

I had a shirt JUST like this when I was a kid – it was neon pink but had the same Mickey and Minnie graphic on it – I guess the 80’s are back in? Check it out here

TGIF Bday4

And just because they are adorable – I sure wouldn’t mind getting a nice cross body Vera Bradly Disney bag

Even if I don’t get any of the items off my Disney wish list, I know I will have a great birthday full of friends, fun, food, and relaxation – and really, what is better than that?

TGIF!

I recently wrote about how Disney was adding new designs to its already wildly popular line of Disney Alex and Ani bracelets – and if you haven’t gotten into the Alex and Ani craze, then you might want to consider starting your collection with some of these awesome Disney styles…
