Easter basket ideas for 5 month old

I'm starting to think about items to buy to put in my daughter's first Easter basket! She will be 5 months old at that time. Does anyone have any good ideas?? I already bought a bunch of books, but I'm looking for some other things, either useful or toy type things. Thanks for any suggestions!!

Put the books in the basket for pictures and such and put everything else you would have spend in a savings account for her or a savings bond. My DS is about to turn 5 and I regret not doing that when he was really too young to really know anyway. Just my opinion.

You can get her a bunny and monogram her name in the ear.

Bunny ears- put her first easter dress in the basket

a big fluffy blanket

eggs with cheerios (that she can shake)

teething rings
the Gerber puffs (I think that's their name)

I though I would have more ideas, but I'm stumped.

A sippy cup or anything that she will need for when she starts eating (the disposable bibs are awesome)

I like the idea of the bunny with name in ear. Where would you get that monogramed? I was just thinking of what to put in my grandson's basket. He will be about 8 weeks

eggs

I love the sock idea! In fact, you could get the bigger plastic eggs and stuff them with fun things like a new pacifier, pacifier holder, etc... whatever your baby likes that would fit.

They have "little people" eggs we put in my nieces basket last year. A stuffed bunny and board books are also a good idea.

For my son's first easter basket we made him a basket of all his first foods, we had some spoons, bowls, little snacks, and then we added the veggies and fruits. We also got him a little toy and an outfit.

My little guy was 2 months last Easter. We put an outfit, a board book, a cloth book, a stuffed animal, tub toys, and a toy for his carseat.

This year, I am thinking about a little toy, another book, bubbles, a new pair of shoes, and maybe a few little snacks.

Hopefully my parents renew our family membership to the local zoo this year as his Easter gift (she mentioned it at Christmas). That could be an idea for you.

Thanks for all the ideas!! I didn't even think of putting socks and other small things in Easter eggs! I now have some wonderful ideas to get my daughter's basked started! Thanks so much!

practical items

I always used to add a few practical items to my child's Easter basket:

pajamas - spring/summer ones are usually needed about this time
of year anyway
toothbrush, socks, etc

These items helped "fill" the basket with more than just candy.
