    They don't seem to make "Easter PJs" in the sizes we'd need, and it's something we didn't get as kids so it's not something I've ever done anyway.

    She gets "stuff" for Easter that isn't chocolate (along with chocolate) though. Why? Because quite frankly, no child needs as much chocolate as some people give... but I don't want her to feel short-changed by the Easter money when she shares with her friends just what she scored from him.

    This afternoon we were discussing it actually, and she thinks the Easter Bunny has just learnt about good healthy eating, and has decided that it's better to give kids some colouring books or something than lots and lots of chocolate.

    We usually end up with chocolate in the fridge for months and months as it is.

    Same. Each to their own but I always got needs, namely clothes as presents. It sucked and clearly I'm talking about me here, not anyone else. Some kids love necessities like clothes and school supplies. But in our house needs never become presents.

    The only gift I ever got for Easter was Easter related craft to make, other then that I got a Humpty Dumpty egg, and a few other eggs in in an Easter Egg hunt.

    My kids are getting bunny ears and a Humpty Dumpty egg. I bought 2 small bags of Cadbury eggs for the hunt. I have never thought of buying them a gift, nor have I heard of pj's- though it explains why all the shops around here have them out with their eggs! It isn't a bad idea either, I may adopt it!

    I give the chocolate. My Mum buys Pj's so no real need for more but if she didn't I would probably buy pj's. I'm opposed to toys or other gifts because I can just see it turning into another Christmas.

    I don't know if I'm a bit old-fashioned, but when we were kids, Easter was for receiving chocolate eggs. You ate a heap of chocolate on that one day, then it was rationed by Mum for as long as it lasted.

    So that's what happens now with my kids. I don't get the whole "Easter present" thing, and have never done it, don't plan to start. I totally agree with not loading little people up with heaps of chocolate, so we just don't buy much at all for the 3yo, and if she gets heaps from family members, we eat it for her. Sometimes, parents have to sacrifice for the good of their children!

    Still buy eggs for the 12yo & 14yo (although obviously, they know they're from us); probably still will until they move out if home.

    Is the prawns thing an extension of the fish on Good Friday Catholic tradition?

    People have just 'glammed it up'?

    Thanks for the replies.

    I totally understand not wanting to give them too much chocolate (or some that dont want to give any), plus allergies and kids that just arent into chocolate.....it is just interesting to read other peoples reasons for wanting to/feeling the need to buy gifts AND chocolate.
