Bunnies, chocolate, lazy days, and most importantly, time spent with family and friends. The Easter break is a wonderful time of year.

The Easter long weekend is often a time to get together and celebrate with family and friends, so it’s also a great excuse to dress your little one up in an adorable outfit. From Easter-themed clothing and accessories to special head-to-toe outfits, there is a range of lovely baby Easter outfit ideas to help you celebrate.

Easter Gift Ideas for Babies

When it comes to Easter, it’s hard to predict what the weather is going to be like. Sometimes it’s still nice and warm, other years the cool chill of autumn is well underway. The secret to managing these varied temperatures is layering your little one. This makes it easy to adjust their outfit depending on how warm or cool it gets.

With that in mind, here are some of our favourite Easter outfit ideas.

1. Tracksuits & 2-piece sets

As the seasons change and the cooler weather starts to set in, tracksuits and 2-piece sets are terrific Easter outfits. Cosy and comfortable, these top-to-toe outfits make dressing and changing times a breeze.

2. Zip Growsuits

Sweet and practical printed growsuits make for great Easter presents. With a two-way zip for easy dressing and changing and inbuilt socks to keep toes nice and warm, growsuits are ideal for Easter long weekends spent at home.

How to Dress Baby over the Easter Long Weekend?

Whether it’s their first Easter, second or more, this time of year is always a special memory for them. Here are a few ideas on how to dress your baby over the Easter period:

  • Good Friday:

    Being the first day of the National Public Holiday and many stores being under restricted trading hours, it’s a good opportunity to spend the day at home with your little one. Simple clothing choices such as a growsuit, singlet, shorts and cardigan (depending on the weather) will keep them comfortable on this lazy day.

  • Easter Saturday

    : The day before the main festivities, Easter Saturday likely involves lots of quick trips to the shops to get everything organised. If you plan on being out and about with your little adventurer, choose something versatile such as a tee and shorts set, paired with a jumper or vest to keep the chill off them.

  • Easter Sunday:

    A day filled with friends and family, Easter Sunday is the main event of the long weekend. With so much happening from attending religious ceremonies to having the annual Easter egg hunt with loved ones, there will be a few outfit changes needed for this day. For more formal events, rompers are an excellent choice which can be paired with a cardigan. On the other hand, those casual get-togethers are the perfect opportunity for Easter-themed growsuits, tops, leggings and more.

  • Easter Monday:

    The second National Public Holiday of the two in this Easter period, this day will be a time for relaxation after a busy weekend. Like Good Friday, if you don’t plan on heading out, keep the outfitting simple for your little one with bodysuits, tops, leggings and a fun Easter jumper.

Easter Gift Ideas for Babies

Whilst the Easter holiday involves giving (and receiving!) gifts of chocolate, more and more parents and grandparents are looking for Easter presents with a little less sugar and a lot more practicality. Especially for very young babies or toddlers who can’t eat dairy, nuts or eggs. They’re looking for practical baby gifts that can be used and treasured for years to come.

1. Toys

Comforters and soft toys are always a hit with little ones. They’ll love snuggling with a soft teddy bear or cuddling up to a cute bunny rabbit. A new toy is great to add to baby’s first Easter basket and a lovely way to commemorate your first Easter together.

2. Rattles

Rattles are an excellent source of stimulation for babies, as they can hold them, watch the parts move and make sounds. Rattles come in all different shapes and sizes, making them perfect baby Easter basket stuffers. Look for rattles made from non-toxic materials, like chemical-free wood and food-grade silicone, so that they’re nice and safe for little ones.

3. Teething Toys

Most babies start teething at around 6 months of age, which often leads to sore, irritated gums. Teething toys help soothe sore gums and ease the pain that comes with the arrival of baby teeth and can also help with the development of hand-eye coordination, making them great little gifts for young babies.

4. Blankets

Given the temperature drops around Easter time, a baby blanket is a wonderful Easter gift. We recommend organic cotton or merino wool blankets that are soft on baby’s skin and super easy to wash.

5. Clothing

Babies grow out of their clothes quickly, so gifts of baby clothing and accessories are always useful! Spoil them with a gorgeous new outfit or stick to the Easter theme with a cute bunny hats. Keep reading below for some baby Easter outfit ideas.

6. Baby skincare products

This gift idea is more for parents than children but is bound to be appreciated nonetheless! Create a gorgeous little gift pack of baby care products, including baby lotion, baby shampoo and a baby hair brush.

7. Feeding accessories

Another gift idea that parents will love receiving! Feeding accessories are great to help them stock up on the things they need for their little ones or themselves. From bottles and bibs to lactation cookies and herbal teas, feeding accessories are thoughtful gifts to help make baby mealtimes easier and more enjoyable for parents and babies alike. Tip: Keep it Easter themed with a bunny-inspired cutlery set!

8. Baby Books

From classic Australian tales to interactive, tactile wooden books, our baby books make for a great educational gift for your baby. Not only do books aid in their cognitive development, but it’s another great way to spend meaningful time with them—creating memories that will last them a lifetime.

9. Gift Cards

While it might not be something that baby can use immediately, parents will cherish the ability to choose exactly what their little one may need with a gift card, such as more organic cotton clothing, a new special occasions outfit or a toy for their little one.

There are a range of ways to celebrate and make your littles one's Easter and make it even more special. We hope these ideas have inspired you to curate wonderful and thoughtful baby gifts for family and friends.
