    When did Easter become 2nd Christmas?? I had no idea ppl bought presents at Easter and thought it odd that BCF was advertising 'the perfect Easter gift for him'
    We don't do pressies. DS is lucky if he gets a few little eggs or a choc bunny. I bought our nephew a $5 Peter rabbit book only because he is too young for chocolate and it was quite a cute little book I prob would have bought anyway.

    I spend about $20 max per child.
    Usually get something like one of those licensed bowl/cup sets with a chocolate egg for around $10, then just a packet of small solid eggs or the slightly larger hollow eggs.
    Easter just isn't a big deal and i don't want the kids gorging on too much chocolate. Was actually thinking i might just start giving them $20 each and letting spend that on something they want instead of chocolate.

    We celebrated Easter, but didn't buy eggs until the year before last when our kids were a little older. We buy just a small amount for a hunt on Easter Monday (half price) and then ration them out slowly as a special treat over the next few weeks.
    Taught before being SAHM so always so much chocolate was given to us from kids - would let friends know we had too much and share it around, but didn't give it as a 'present'.

    I am so naive! I didn't realise that people give gifts at Easter, other than chocolate.

    When my sister and I were young we would get a oversized chocolate egg from a childless Aunty and so my
    Mum wouldn't allow any other chocolate.

    Other than that we used to decorate blown eggs, then dad would hide them around the garden and we'd have an Easter egg hunt on Sunday morning. They were never exchanged for chocolate though.

    I am starting to realise we got ripped off!

    I only buy haighs though. Mum always buys me a new tea cup & pjs but now I've let DP pass on that tradition as we are expecting first child in couple weeks so I want to do that!

    So far I have spent $5 on chocolate and got two bunnies, a bag of small eggs and 2 medium size eggs. All Cadbury

    I also bought an easter book for DS2 for $8. He can't have chocolate yet (8wks old).

    I am planning on getting one of the bowl/cup sets as well and I have to find a candy egg for DP as he doesn't eat chocolate so will prob spend another $15.

    I haven't bought it yet, but I'll be getting dd a carton of eggs and a bunny, plus an egg cup. My parents, ILs and dh will all probably get an egg each. I don't understand the concept of toys for Easter
