A Tasteful Teether

With two tasty ears to nibble on, soft wood to grab onto, and absorbent fabric to catch dribbles, there's a lot for babies to love about this soothing teether. When teeth are popping up, wet the fabric and freeze it for a nice, numbing treat. We also love the bunny-themed silicone & wood teethers ($14). They have a nubby texture for sore gums and come in light gray, lilac, blush pink and bright aqua.

Squeeze the roof lights to turn on the truck's 11 lights for 15 minutes.

Copper Pearl is known for luxurious fabrics with darling designs, and this three-layer Easter quilt is no exception. Made from a polyester/rayon blend, it's super soft, breathable and slightly stretchy. And at a generous size (46x46), it will snuggle with your child through toddlerhood.

The Coolest Shades

Get ready for the sunny, summery days ahead with a pair of baby sunglasses, like these from Babiators. With UV400 lenses that offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, they'll protect baby's eyes from the sun's rays. And the flexible rubber frames and shatter-resistant lenses resist breakage. Available in a variety of colors and styles (even heart shaped!), you can also purchase a silicone strap to keep your child from taking them off. 

Available at babiators.com, $22-$36.

Literature for Your Littlest

In Babylit's alphabet primer E Is for Easter, your child will learn the ABCs while enjoying fun, vintage-looking drawings that celebrate Easter and spring, from Easter egg hunts to the beauty of spring flowers.

Available at babylit.com, $9.99.

The Easter Story

This is an Easter gift you'll want to give a week in advance. It builds excitement for the holiday while celebrating the meaning of Easter. The Easter Story Egg comprises a hardcover book and seven nesting Easter eggs. Each hand-carved wooden egg corresponds to a rhyming story in the book about the significance of the days leading up to Easter, starting with Palm Sunday. 

Available at starkidscompany.com, $34.99.

Cuddly Soother

For babies under 6 months or without teeth, a Wubbanub pacifier is a treasured friend, so pop a duck, lamb or bunny into your basket. It's soft enough to cuddle, has a durable pacifier and (parents, listen up!) the weight of the toy helps the pacifier stay in your child's mouth while they sleep, so there are fewer cries for help reinserting the pacifier.

Available at amazon.com, $17.95.

Eggs-tra Special Toy

These Tomy Hide & Squeak Eggs will stay a favorite long after Easter is over. Younger babies will love to pull off the shells to reveal the colorful eggs underneath (and to give these toys a good chew). Older babies can match the colors of the shells and eggs, push on the egg to hear it squeak, and sort the eggs into the right spot in the egg carton. Each has a unique shape on the bottom and fits only in one spot of the carton.

Available at amazon.com, $13.42.

All-in-One Basket and Toys

Soft and sweet, this basket is filled with an age-appropriate plush set of four holiday-themed toys from GUND: a carrot crinkle toy, a squeaky egg, a chick rattle and a bunny that makes sounds.

Available at amazon.com, $28.95

Eat Your Veggies

This carrot rattle is cute, cuddly and supports creativity. Each rattle is handmade in 100% cotton by a female artisan, through a company that provides sustainable work for young women in Bangladesh.

Available at littlemarket.com, $14.
