Spring Fever Finds for Babies and Big Siblings

By Published On: April 7th, 2023

These picks are perfect for welcoming the season or adding to Easter baskets.

Springtime brings an appreciated change to more than just temperatures; our routines, wardrobes, and willingness to get outside are all refreshed—sometimes with the help of some new inventory. 

Around here, we believe that florals are classic (in the best way possible), that everyone can rock a pair of sunnies, and that collecting rocks, flowers, and bugs is an ideal afternoon activity. If you’re on the hunt for cute Easter basket gifts or simply want to celebrate warmer weather, these fun products are ripe for the picking.

Bunny Ears Bonnet

Your flopsy or mopsy will look darling in this handmade linen bonnet from Brim Shoppe. It’s ideal for keeping baby’s head protected from the sun’s rays during strolls through the neighborhood and outside tummy time. Customize your purchase by choosing from various brim styles and lining options, including cotton, silk, flannel, and sherpa.

Ruffle Sleeve Set

This set from Tea Collection has everything we love about spring baby fashion: bright colors, ruffle details, comfy bloomers, and coordinating options for the rest of the family. Whether you mix or match these pieces, the painted squash and hibiscus print will add zest to baby’s ensemble.

Mini Toy Carrier

If your wee one is a little caretaker, gift them the Baby Tula mini carrier for wearing their favorite doll, stuffed animal, or toy. Wearing your “babies” together can be a special way to include your older child in everyday life with a newborn, from daily walks to making dinner to doing laundry by your side. Bonus: You can match with the adult version!

Lightweight Sleeper

No springtime holiday celebration is complete without pastels and checkered prints. Solly Baby’s sleeper sets are super soft to the touch and feature optional hand covers for sizes 0-3 months. This limited print is back for the season and is available in a wrap, swaddle, knotted hat, and crib sheet.

Seasonal Storybook

It’s never too early to start teaching your kiddo about the circle of life—for butterflies, that is. This tale, titled Caterpillar and Bean, written by Martin Jenkins, follows the life cycle of a bean seed that produces a plant, which then houses a caterpillar egg and eventually a chrysalis that makes way for a butterfly. You’ll reach for this book often because it’s enjoyable to read and helps you feel a bit more in awe of Mother Nature.

Floral Shades

These freshly picked flower sunglasses from Babiators are polarized, meaning they improve visibility for little eyes by reducing the harsh glare from the sun and reflective surfaces like water, sand, snow, and ice. They’re durable, stylish, and BPA-free.

Hooded Raincoat

April showers bring May flowers, and that means appropriate outerwear is in order. We love the themed print on this sweet H&M jacket with a removable hood (perfect for a mild spring day), elastic cuffs and hem, and the affordable price.

Musical Toy Eggs

This festive collection of beech wood eggs from HABA packs five musical sounds for babies to explore, including jingling, clicking, chirping, and two different rattling options. The bright colors and easy-to-grip design fosters development and a love for music and rhythm.

Wearable Blanket

Help your little one stay snug and warm each night with MORI’s organic sleep sack. This wearable blanket features the brand’s thermoregulating signature fabric that makes it comfortable to use all year long. The zippered design is great for diaper swaps, and the Peter Rabbit print is ear-resistable.

Carrot Teether

Spoiler alert: Rabbits don’t naturally eat root vegetables, but that shouldn’t stop you from treating your baby bunny to this Oli&Carol carrot teether. This 2-in-1 toy is made with 100% natural rubber and soft double-layered muslin for calming sensorial development. The removable leafy-green attachment is also machine-washable for easy cleaning.

Durable Play Shoes

The brand PLAE was built on the belief that play is fundamental, constant, and boundless—and that the shoes on our feet (adults included!) should keep up in everyday life. Made for running, jumping, swinging, balancing, and everything in between, these TY sneakers from Plae offer excellent traction and are made for outdoor adventures.

Collection Box

Does your sprout love to get up close and personal with the world around them? This collection box from Oak & Ever is an engaging tool for observing whatever strikes their eye with the seven different compartments and corresponding magnifying lenses for more detailed discovery. What’s more, a portion of each purchase goes toward Children & Nature Network, an organization committed to connecting kids to nature.

Snuggly Wrap

The coziness is next level with GUND’s bunny blanket wrap. This plush pal is double-sided in softness and features an inner lining of quilted fabric made of quality materials. Whether for play, cuddles, or as a keepsake, this hooded blanket is a great gift for your sweet pea.

Invite older kids to a fun afternoon of baking Easter treats with the help of Williams Sonoma’s thumbprint cookie cutter set. Each stamp creates intricately detailed sugar cookies in bunny, egg, chick, and basket shapes.

Cute Crib Sheet

Bitty ladybugs cover this breathable organic cotton crib sheet from Pehr that elevates your wee one’s night of sleep. Available in bee, grasshopper, and snail prints, these ethically made linens are an adorable addition to any nursery theme.
