7 Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Pet Rabbits
There is no better time to spoil your bunny this spring than Easter. Our rabbit friends are closely associated with the holiday. And what better way to spoil her on Easter than by giving her a personalized Easter basket filled with goodies? Yes, you read that right. Your lil’ cottontail is just as much a part of your family as the two-legged members, so why not treat her to her very own Easter basket?
We hopped around and picked out some gifts that you can put in your bun’s Easter basket. She will be so intrigued with her new bunny supplies that you just might be able to snap a photo before she hops away—talk about an Easter miracle!
When it comes to gifting, food and snacks are a favorite for just about everyone—including rabbits. With ingredients like corn, alfalfa, carrots and beets, your bunny is bound to be happy with these tasty gourmet treats. No need to feel guilty for spoiling your rabbit with these tasty treats; they contain fiber, which helps promote digestive health.
Everyone expects yummy treats in their Easter basket. These “berry good” treats contain no artificial colors and are made with real fruit and yogurt to help give your bunny a healthy dose of protein on Easter day. Yum!
Get crafty: Put these goodies in a festive treat bag, which you can find at a local craft store. Then, tie up the bag with a cute bow and toss it in the basket.
Having people over for the holiday? This gift can provide your bunny with a place to feel safe and secure while allowing you to keep an eye on her, thanks to the translucent material. Also, the igloo’s vented top is designed to allow air circulation, which should help keep your bunny comfortable when laying low.
You can never have too many treats in an Easter basket. Surprise your bunny with these tasty treats that also happen to be healthy. Kaytee’s Healthy Bits rabbit treats include corn, sunflower, peanuts, field peas, papaya, honey and apples; they also contain DHA, which helps support heart, brain and visual health.
What rabbit wouldn’t like some toys in her Easter basket? Yeah, we can’t think of any either!
These ball toys are designed for rabbits who like to chew. Each is made of a different all-natural material—either seagrass, hyacinth or rattan—to help keep curious minds engaged.
Stuff these balls with treats and place them on top of the other items in your furry friend’s Easter basket. The enticing smell can draw in your bunny to check out the rest of the goods.
After all the Easter festivities are done and your rabbit grows sleepy, this mat might be just what she needs to get some rest. Oxbow’s small animal mat is hand-woven from Timothy hay and, according to the manufacturer, contains no wires, thread or chemicals, which means no worries! Just set the mat in a nice clear space in one of her rabbit cages or in your rabbit’s area of your home and you’re all set. And for those who like to snack in bed, this mat is edible.
Give the gift of nourishment with Oxbow’s rabbit food. This tasty diet is formulated to help meet your bunny’s nutritional needs by containing Timothy grass meal as the main ingredient. Plus, the fiber helps promote digestion.
Don’t forget: When it’s time to give your rabbit her Easter basket, be sure to supervise her, and avoid letting her chew on the basket itself.
