What's in your Easter Basket?

What is going in your baskets this year?

Found a few bargains:

Skylanders for $4.99 ($8.99 w/$4.00 instant rebate at BJs)

Love the Wreck it Ralph coupon!

I picked up Valentine classroom Skittles kits on clearance and will put the small candy packages in plastic eggs....the packaging is not valentines. Also picked up some erasers and bouncy balls for egg stuffers.

Found some great stuff at Five Below, like headphones, Lego DS stylus, comic books, gummy smurfs.

Need to find a clever basket that will double as some kind of storage device, like a storage cube or underbed storage box.

Anyone find any great deals or have clever ideas for stuffing eggs?

I'm going to do a summer theme, flip flops, Maybe a new bathing suit (my girls are 10 and 7), sunglasses, new beach towel, sun block, some beach toys, and fill eggs with one dollar bills. I will do a little candy (but for the price of candy) i think I will do things that are related to summer that I would have to buy anyways.

I'm having a hard time with my teens this year, but I've picked up a couple things. I have new t-shirts for each child, a couple small toys that I bought for stocking stuffers that didn't fit in their stockings.

Disney pins marked down at Christmas
Arm bands for their ipod touches
The three oldest will get new beach towels
I picked up a football for my youngest
I cashed in mypoints for a Subway gc for my 15yo
My 17yo is getting a waist wallet to wear under her clothes for a trip she's taking this summer

I keep watching for a deal on Skylanders because I'd like to get my 11yo and 8yo some more. Other than that I really don't know. My 8yo and 13yo also have birthdays in April so I'm struggling.

DS's basket is going to have a few vinylmations, Wreck it Ralph DVD, a nerf football, a pair of summer pjs and a little bit of candy. We have a disney outlet right down the street from us, so if they get in any new pins or anything else that is interesting, I'll probably throw that in as well. And I think the Easter Bunny may leave him a new board game as well, if I can find something that looks good. DS loves to play the same two ones over and over, so I'm hoping to distract him with something new, because frankly, I'm sick of those same two games

I can sympathize, my 8yo is stuck on The Game of Life.

I bought a bunch of stuff when the Disney Store was having their 40% sale online. Our baskets will have a few plushes, pajamas, a few short sleeve shirts, a bunch of Disney stickers and a stamp set. I will probably add a movie, either Pochahontas or Mulan, and a few snacks.

My daughter is older (13) but I am still doing a basket for her- I guess it will have a chocolate rabbit, some peanut butter cups and then some gift cards and makeup...haven't really thought much about it yet.

DD5 is getting an 8 pack of My Little Pony's ($13), a stuffed bunny ($1), peanut butter eggs, and some other candy.
DD14 is getting a shirt (Old Navy gift certificate...so free!), gift card, candy and gum.
DS17 is getting a pair of athletic pants (clearance at Target, $8.00), a gift card, candy and gum.
DD23 and her DH are getting a gift card to a restaurant, some snack foods, candy and gum.
I get the candy at CVS for much of nothing with the ECB's I have
With 4 kids and a new SIL, I try and do as budget as I can. I realize that a couple of my kids are a little "old" for baskets, but they are still my babies and I love getting them a little something too

My son is 13 yrs old and still gets an Easter Basket. This year he's getting his PAP to Disney World and his annual pass to Cedar Point (everyone is getting their passes to both places for Easter), Easter eggs filled with Disney Dollars and his first digital camera. We eat very little candy or sugar in our house so we like to fill the Easter Basket with fun places to go throughout the year instead of filling our bellies with sugar.

Ours are all related to our trip to WDW the next day!!
I have 2 DD's, 15 and 16, traveling with their HS band to Disney on 4/1 on a 20 hour bus ride and the rest of us are flying down to watch them March in the parade.
DD15 & 16: their phones will most likely be upgrade the week before so that is their main gift, but snacks and candy for bus and hotel, $$, makeup, flip flops, etc.
DS12: Hidden Mickey book, new ear buds, candy, sunglasses, $$, pins (for trading), app gift card
DS5: (1st trip to WDW) : autograph book and marker, pin trading lanyard, ear buds, candy, coloring book and crayons for plane, $$

Getting so excited!!!!

I did an art theme this year. At Target I got each kid a pack of crayons, markers, and colored pencils. They had Lego sticker/folder packs on sale for 90 cents each at Target in the red sticker section. Those were perfect because they had two friends packs and two ninjago packs. They also had little lego notebooks on sale for 90 cents, so I got 4 of those to match the folders. I also got each of them got these cute lego erasers that came in packs of 4 for 45 cents! I got all of them a book of plain drawing paper. The girls also got a Disney princess color wonder set with stickers to color. That was cool because I also found that at Target on sale for $6 from 16. The boys both are getting one small lego set ($5) each as well. I got them workbooks off the $1 rack at Target too. Two for each of them. Letters/ numbers/ math. Then I got them some candy to put on top. M&M in a plastic egg, Jelly beans in a plastic egg, reese's pieces shaped like a carrot, and those flavored milk straws. I was really happy with it this year. In all I spent less than 20/basket.

We keep Easter baskets to candy and a few trinkets. I have no interest in making it a big expense or a big gift fest.

I've got a teen and a preteen, both girls. Besides candy, they'll get a little make-up and a nail polish or two.

For those of you who are Aldi's shoppers, they have some really nice Easter chocolate for great prices.

Wreck It Ralph on Blu-Ray (may be for both if I can't find a second movie), a book, a t-shirt & some candy. Oh & some Candyland & Operation band-aids from the Target Dollar Spot.
