Shop Local: Easter Basket Ideas

by Bailey Bouwman

Chatting about Easter with a girlfriend today, and she was like... it's 2.5 weeks away, it's time to start building that family tradition - or maybe you just buy Kinder Surprise's in bulk and call it a day. No shame in that game, that's actually incredibly wise.
If you're into building an Easter Basket because you'd rather ditch the chocolate for a collection of toys and activities - this is the blog post for you. We are rounding out our favourite finds from Prince George, BC to add to your babies Easter Basket this year. Check out these local businesses and take a day shopping local this month - get to chat with everyone and see how they are doing, the products they stock, and everything else. 

Kids Easter Basket Ideas

the Basket

Scrolling on Instagram, I discovered Littlest Sista Basket Co, and there may not be enough time to custom craft basket for Easter, you gotta know about this local business for the potential possibility of custom making your next basket.

Bubbles from Blissful Bubbles

Shop a selection of bunnies, eggs, and other easter-themed bath bubbles and products at Blissful Bubbles Boutique, conveniently located in Pine Centre Mall. Everyone loves Blissful Bubbles and the 6 pack egg bombs, or the easter doughnut is a must-have for your kids easter basket. Handmade here in Prince George, shop with them online or in store. 

Add a Custom Card from SM Digital Artistry

Susanne McLeod can help create a custom Easter Card for your easter basket. This local artist turns your photos into works of arts, and you can learn more at SM Digital Artistry.

Roll Up a Waterproof Bib from Matte Baby Co.

We carry these in store, but you can also shop online via Etsy to shop a selection fo waterproof bibs and nursery decorations for your baby.
This 100% waterproof wearable bib was designed to reduce the mess and damage to baby’s clothing during mealtimes and messy play! Long and short sleeve options available depending on the amount of coverage preferred

Grab a romper from Taits Attire

Seriously how cute are these rompers from local seamstress at Taits Attire? Available in a few different sizes and colours, it's easily a must-have for a baby's first easter basket, or perhaps your next easter photoshoot. 

Add many books about cute things from Books & Co

You could add an easter-themed book, or you could just shop the selection of books at Books & Company until you found just the right fit for your early reader. 

Add some toys from Gingerbread Toys

We don't have the same toys as Gingerbread Toys in College Heights, making them a must-stop for exploring the perfect addition to your easter basket from bath toys, to animals, to trains.
For my kids, it would definitely be more Schleich animals in their Easter eggs this year - or one of these many soft plush animals seen below. 

A few now bows from the Crafty Redhead

This Prince George bow-maker is crafting up a storm with great new selection available at the Small Business Fair, and so much more online. Visit the Crafty Redhead for her selection of bows and more - including easter themed hair bows and clips.

Order a custom easter bunny from KRG Creations in Prince George.

Skip the basket, go for a balloon?

Did you know that you can now build a Stuffed Balloon Boquet in Prince George? Yes, you can. Stuff it full cuddly animals for a show-stopping Easter Basket for your littles this April. Visit The Balloon Effect to build your custom bouquet and impress the balloon obsessed toddler in your life.
