I really have no idea. I wasn't given a present for easter as a child but I like giving DD something, it's usually something she wants anyway and just gives me an excuse to give in to her lol

This will be DDs first Easter with gifts. We have never told her about the Easter bunny/Santa/tooth fairy etc but instead chose to let her make up her own mind. We did Santa for the first time this year just been because DD was convinced Santa was coming to her just like all her friends. The same applies for the Easter bunny. We told her once that Santa wasn't real and was an imagination game and she told us we were wrong and she wanted to believe Santa was real. So now we play the game because she would be heartbroken if Easter bunny/Santa etc didn't come to her and not understand why they come to her friends. also everyone (even strangers) tend to ask "what's Santa bringing you" or "the Easter bunny will be here soon" so it's very hard to go against the grain. I figure we indulge her other imagination games and if DD says "look mummy Im a fairy" I don't say "no your not fairies aren't real". But I also refuse to say outright that any of it is real, instead asking her what she wants to believe.
We are giving her (from the Easter bunny) a little basket with a small choc bunny with smarties in it (which will be rationed as too much dairy gives her a stomach ache), Easter stickers, a pair if bunny ears that light up and a little plaster of Paris bunny that she can paint. $13.50 in total from the reject shop.

After having a garage sale and seeing how much "stuff" we'd accumulated, I am axing the present at Easter and just going for family time away plus chocolates. The kids don't need anything else and if we have to pay for presents plus the weekend away it will get ridiculous.

my kids have allergies...should I make them miss out? Nope!
The bunny leaves them something special, end of story.

No and I'd never heard of gifts for Easter until BubHub.
PJs is obviously a coming into winter thing, but I don't dress necessities up as gifts.

I give gifts as I don't want my kids having to much chocolate, no I can't just buy 1 or 2 eggs as we were spoilt as kids and I want to do the same..
Plus I don't really buy things for my kids throughout the year so spoil them in birthdays, Christmas and Easter.

We have always gotten winter pjs and a book for Easter. This year I'm getting both girls and Dh the same.

I will give DS one or two small gifts simply because I want to, and they will be scattered in between what many would deem to be too much chocolate. I figure that Easter is all about eating too much chocolate and him being able to eat it, and enjoy it, as breakfast even if he wants to.
I do not understand giving items like pj's or slippers as Easter, as they are every day items, but having that said I do not understand giving clothes in general as gifts (unless they are designer labels).
