Hi, I would have never spent $100 on all four children at easter time. I have only bought a couple of eggs and new winter pjs. That was all I would buy. They would get other eggs from their grandparents. I have now bought for my grandsons, new clothes, and very little chocolate. Easter is not such a big deal for presents or chocolates, I consider the religious side way more important. Marie.

I'm pretty sure I've spent that already on eggs for myself!

Yes it sounds like a lot. DD has vegan chocolate not bought at the supermarket, a dvd and 3 books. The small vegan chocolate eggs are for dd and her uncle to have an easter egg hunt at the farm, it's an 8 pack and they are just the little solid eggs.

We spent about $45 on eggs. The girls will probably have a few spread over a long period, while DF and I eat the rest while they sleep. Easter egg chocolate tastes better for some reason??

the boys are getting pjs and a bunny from me ... a bag of goodies (eggs and bunny and art stuff) from the bunny and will get some eggs/ clothes from relatives - but we definitely dont blow the budget .. and everyone in our family prefers to give (and receive) gifts that AREN"T chocolate at easter .. it just gets too much ... no one neeeeeeeeeds that much chocolate.
tbh .. it gets a bit silly .. bit of a chocolate overload ... I'd rather give books/ puzzles/ clothes etc

I remember getting 1 egg for easter. DHs family do a hunt for the little nes every year and my 2 get heaps more than I would like anyway

I don't really "do" easter, but despite me asking them not to, my family always give me and DD chocolate (and expect me to give them chocolate in return even though every year I say we are not interested).
I don't really get it to be honest. Chocolate makes DD go crazy, makes me feel bloated and fat... why do people think they are doing something nice for us by giving us a whole lot of it? And then get all offended and huffy when we say no thanks..?

I spend about $20 each on my kids, the girls are getting bunny shaped blackboards, a bunny and a larger egg each and DS is getting a bunny and an egg (he got a blackboard for his birthday monday)
