Ha ha. My son was stuck on Life last summer. Right now, he's hooked on Clue, if it's just him and myself, and The Logo Game, if my husband is playing too (it's a bit too hard for just him, so he needs someone else on his team.)

Haven't figured out DS4 yet but,
DD10 - is really into the Hunger Games right now. We ordered the Katniss barbie on amazon. And I found mockingjay earrings on ebay. She'll also get a chocolate bunny and a few pieces of candy.
DD6 - has been saving for her own ipad mini. We're so proud of her. She has worked so hard to save $100 so far! So the Easter bunny will give her $20. When I asked her what she wanted, she said I hope the bunny will bring CASH!! She'll also get a few cheap earrings from Claires and a chocolate bunny and a few pieces of candy.

This is what we are doing too.

DS is 21 & I'm doing him a basket! No idea what I'll put it in but it will be some fun stuff (nothing expensive) & a little candy. We're all trying to cut back on the sweets.

We are going to Disney in Apr for my DD's 11th bday so I am planning on making her Easter basket Disney themed. I bought a lot of 25 trader pins on Ebay and will be filling some plastic eggs with those, maybe some Disney Dollars, A Pin Trading guide she has been wanting and other themed trinkets she can use for the trip. And for my 15 yr old DS, I will probably get him some chocolate, a giftcard and some little odds & ends.

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.
Same here--I'm not making it a gift day. They are getting rice krispy treats shaped like eggs I picked up at Disney last week and some candy from the store.

I have two teens, so older one is getting shorts and tee shirts for summer, I'll throw in flip flops and ear buds too. Younger is getting the Game of Life, an owl webkinz and a few books. Both will get candy, some makeup and a vinylmation (clearance at the disney store for $5).

We're just the opposite. The grandparents bring so much candy into our house, the Easter Bunny has to focus on small gifts and barely any candy. If we have too much candy in the house I end up fighting with the kids as they beg for all the loot in the pantry.

I have no idea! I try to get my sons (10) an outside toy, since their bday is in Jan, they don't get many of those. Any ideas?

DD (17) will get some Teva flip flops I got on clearance last fall so she'll stay away from mine!

I think I'm going to do more of a summer themed basket for DD. She will be going to summer day camp and is with the "big" kids this year. Since they swim twice a week, I'm thinking of getting her a beach towel and new flip flops and some type of change purse to keep her spending money in. She'll get a chocolate bunny as well.

For my DSSs I have no idea. Candy & cash, maybe?

So far, Wreck-it-Ralph, a Star Wars Lego set, a storage case for his Skylanders Giants that I got on a great sale at Target, a new bathing suit and flip flops and a book. I also found an adorable stuffed Yoda with bunny ears, holding a bag of jelly beans. I am trying desperately to find the new Skylander Giant that was just released, Ninjini, but she is sold out everywhere. She is the only one he doesn't have. Everyone I know is out looking, so hopefully I will get her in time for Easter.

I will get him a little bit of chocolate and some snacks, but not a lot as I always end up throwing some of it away. And, any other fun little thing that strikes my fancy. BTW...DS is 7.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

I'm a bad mom, because he's pretty much getting candy.

He has to buy his own movies and video games, with his allowance. Same with toys.
