I bought our stuff yestersay and it came to $90 odd. But in that included eggs for friends 2 sons with boxes to put them in, teenage mutant ninja turtle figure DS is collecting and pens and pencils for his easter colouring in book plus eggs for hunt after work as taking DS to work with me for 8.5hrs coz my sister has cancelled babysitting on me and i need to work to help cover vacation care fees and i know he is going to be rather bored there.
Yes i have extemely overspent on DS who is 5 and had no intention spending that much but its good chocolate and i will get some of it anyway.

DD is 2.5 years old, so far we have spent
$15 on a toy cash register as her present.
$5 on a dora egg.
$15 on little eggs for Easter egg hunt and a basket

Um... well I got her some of those eggs that are kinda pretty... I think there's 6 eggs in the pack and one is white chocolate with sprinkles through it? She wanted them anyway. That's $10.
The basket I got for hunting was about $5. I got her a little egg cup - $5. I think a small pack of caramello eggs - maybe $3-ish. A colouring book - $3. And a few little plastic covers for the eggs for egg hunts - I dunno, about $3 for those.
So what's that? Nearly $30 I guess.
That's only for DD, and I don't buy anything for anyone else at Easter.

We have spent about $30 on chocolate for DS & $60 for family & friends. Extremely expensive for only Cadbury & Lindt!

This year we spent $60 including postage
Not sure whether we will be home or going away but if we stay we'll chuck in for Easter lunch as well....

Haven't bought anything yet, but they'll both get some chocolae (they're 20 months and 3.5 years). The little one will probably only eat like one small egg. I don't know if we'll do a hunt or anything like that, we might, I'll decide when we're doing the groceries before the weekend. It'll just get added to our groceries.

i cant believe how expensive easter is. i hate all the chocolate. we always have it hanging around till xmas. i cant justify spending alot on junk.
I got dd whos 2, a dora easter dvd and some little eggs for her bunny bag she leaves out for the easter bunny. It came to $20.
ds is all of 12 weeks old and ive found it near impossible to find something apporpriate. $20 for a stuffed toy?!?! Target in particular was very disapointing with their range this year. I want to get him a melamine egg cup and sponn like i got dd for her first easter, but i cant find them this year.
We dont buy for family, if they buy for us that's their decision.
My sister cant help herself and spoils the kids with a range of presents, i dont mind because she doesnt get them chocolate!!!

When the kids were young up until just 3 years ago we spend about 100 per child. This year will be
1 year old $100
6 year old $150
13, 15, 17 year old about $200 each
