Blake's 1st Easter Basket

First of all how is it Easter tomorrow already? 
This time last year I didn't even know I was pregnant, now I have an adorably cute little boy who is
4 months old in just under two weeks time. 

I have decided to as a tradition make up an Easter basket for Blake. 
I have decided to show you what I have chosen for Blake's basket as I had such fun putting it together. 
I love the idea of being able to put little baskets together for different holidays/occasions. 

The basket I used is a blue plastic one which I found in Tesco but I think next year 
I will look out for a wicker one as I have found this basket to be a little flimsy. 

With Blake being so young I decided to choose items for his basket that I know
he would find useful in the coming months and some items that I know he can enjoy/use now.
As after all he is unable to have chocolate. 

First up I chose one of my favourite children's books
"Guess How Much I love You". 
Having worked in childcare in the past I have read this book many times before
and love the story of little and big nut brown hares efforts to show how much they love each other. 
This book also comes with a DVD which will be fab when he is much older. 

Next up I chose the "Peter Rabbit, My first little library". 
The set contains 4 chunky board books: 
- Words
- Numbers
- Colours
I am huge fan of Beatrix Potter and so this set is ideal as I can read them 
to him now and then they will help with his learning as he gets older. 

Two pairs of Sock Ons in 0-6 months had to be included his socks are always falling off or 
he kicks them off. 
I have heard only good things about Sock On's and can't wait to use these.
They are made from soft woven blend of elasticised material with matching coloured stitching. 
They come in a range of colours too but I chose white as they will go with most of his outfits.

I've not had a chance to do any hand and feet prints of Blake's yet so I have decided
to give these inkless wipe hand and foot print kit a go. 
It looks pretty simple to do and also looks less messy than when using ink or paint when 
making hand prints. 
The kit can make approx 8 baby sized prints with a single wipe. 

Last of all I got the Bright Starts Activity Balls. 
When I went to a Mum and baby group in my local area the other week Blake 
loved holding one of these balls whilst we were there so I thought it would be a great 
idea to get him some of his own. 
The set has 5 balls that are designed to entertain and stimulate your baby as part of their development. 
Each ball in the set is different and features a fun activity such as a rattle, a spinner or making clicky sounds. 

So what do you think of what I have put in Blake's Easter basket? 
I hope this gives you some ideas.
