    Thankfully my parents & siblings don't buy eggs for each other anymore as it was getting ridiculously expensive ($100+!!). We usually each just buy some eggs or a box of chocolates to share on Easter Sunday when we all get together for a BBQ. We got my niece and nephew a humpty dumty egg, bag of solid eggs and a soft bunny toy each, so about $12 each on them.

    Hubby's family usually keeps it low key but still buy eggs, so about $8 each for FIL, MIL & SIL.

    Hubby and I bought 2 bunnies and 2 bags of solid eggs as our "gifts" to each other, so about $16 total for the two of us. Bub is 4 weeks old so is getting nothing, I was going to get her a soft toy or PJs but she has a massive tub of soft toys and drawers full of clothes & PJs so we didn't get her anything.

    Even though we were trying to be very cost conscious this year, we buy all Cadbury coz there is no point buying yuck cheap chocolate that no one likes, so it still cost us $78!!

    I haven't bought eggs yet as I don't want the temptation too early!
    Ds 14yo $17 for angry birds pj pants
    Dd1 12 yo $20something for a onsie
    Dd2 13mo $28 for two pairs of leather soft sole shoes as she already has enough winter pjs.
    I usually get the big kids a couple of large eggs and a pack of small eggs each.

    Very little but that is because DH's parents have sent a package full of stuff.

    Will get some eggs for a basket too. Maybe a bunny too?

    I'm 99% positive that if I look at the back of the top shelf of the pantry I will find some old eggs from last year.

    About $40 on three kids. I refuse to buy presents, only chocolate. It has to be good quality chocolate too as we have a severe nut allergy in the family!

    My ds is only 13mnths & will prob have his first taste of choc this Easter.
    I got him a $10 monsters inc set which has the cup, bowl and spoon plus a small egg. I needed more bowls for him so worked out well. Plus I got him a tiger plush toy which is a carry basket with 3 eggs inside (which dp & i will prob eat lol) that was also $10.
    I only plan to spend $20 each yr per child.

    I spent $10 on my niece and bought her the Barbie bowl,spoon & cup set. She is 19mnths. $10 max on any kids in the family- nothing for adults.

    I dunno, I bought a bg of small Cadbury eggs to hide in the garden for DD (6), I think it was maybe $7?

    We don't really do Easter as I hate having chocolate in the house - If we do I basically gorge on it and make myself feel disgusting and go through some mega self-hate for weeks...
