We’re getting ready for Easter already this year, since my husband is already starting the classes that he needs to become a Catholic this Easter. I’m reviving the tradition that I enjoyed as a child of getting small gifts in a basket on Easter morning. Christianbook.com is a great place to look for things to stuff the basket. Are you buying anything for kids or grandkids this Easter?
I liked this product before we returned to the church, and this year we’re ordering it. I can’t wait. Go on an egg hunt each day leading up to Easter and learn about the Easter story. It comes with a story guide, but if you want something more wordy with nice illustrations, check out the last book on this page.

Crack open the glorious story of Jesus’ resurrection! Stored in a plastic carton, a dozen rainbow-hued eggs are filled with surprises. Pop them open and find miniature symbols of Easter inside! An updated companion booklet in English and Spanish features illustrated Bible stories explaining the significance of each object. Includes decorative stickers! Ages 5 and up.
My daughter asked for this plush puppy. It plays her favourite (and first) hymn, Jesus Loves Me. In my experience you can’t go wrong with Gund. Their toys are always well made of quality plush.
