When I was thinking up themes for Easter baskets, I immediately thought of a unicorn theme Easter basket. We are a tad bit obsessed with all things magical these days. Unicorns, mermaids and rainbows to name a few. We had mermaid-theme Halloween costumes for the whole family and a unicorn theme birthday cake for Scarlett's 6th birthday party. We already have quite a bit of mermaid and unicorn paraphernalia, including mermaid tail blankets (we have 3 total!), unicorn lip balm, a rainbow unicorn lunch box, rainbow backpacks, and the list goes on and on. But if you're a little girl can you ever have enough magical creatures in your life?!? I mean really. So the Easter Bunny will be bringing more magical unicorn shiznit into our lives.
Here's a list of some of the unicorn goods I got to fill Scarlett and Lyla's unicorn theme Easter baskets. I also hit the dollar bins at my happy place (aka Target) and found a plethora of unicorn goods (art projects, notebooks, markers, stickers, bandaids to name a few) to tuck in among these bigger items.
We take water bottles everywhere we go, and this Camelbak water bottle
is sure to be a hit with the girls. Made of BPA-free plastic and $12.99 with free shipping from Amazon Prime - done!
We love reading books before bed and Uni the Unicorn
(by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, $8.99 on Amazon Prime) will be a nice addition to the kids' library.
I can't even tell you how many lip balms and lip glosses we have in our house. We have a dresser drawer that is basically just filled with lip care. This unicorn lip gloss was too cute to pass up. I bought it at DOT on the UWS and I also saw it at Greenstones and Stoopher and Boots. You can check this website
with your zip code to find it at a store near you.
What Easter basket would be complete without a little sugar inside? I ordered some of these hot pink mini twisty lollipops
from Oriental Trading Company ($5.99 for 24 pieces) that look like a magical unicorn horn and my girls will be thrilled. They are big fans of lollipops (they like their sugar straight up!) so these should hit the spot. I'll save the extras to tie on top of birthday gifts for spring/summer parties because you know
my girls aren't getting a dozen each.
Another unicorn find from H&M! We are all total clothes horses (magical clothes horses, of course) so I ordered 2 of these matching unicorn print dresses
for summer. They are soft cotton, perfect for hot summer days and only $4.99.
Yes, Target and craft stores have cheaper unicorn stickers but these are puffy unicorn stickers
so we can use them in Scarlett's reusable sticker book. I had a sticker book that I loved as a kid and used to trade coveted puffy stickers with my friends so I am a sucker for luxe stickers. $6.42/pack on Amazon Prime.
Lastly, since my kids don't yet know how to read, I would totally take this Bitch Please I'm A Unicorn mug in my Easter basket if anyone is looking for ideas for my unicorn theme Easter basket (hint, hint).
