  • my mom always did individual things for us. of course we got candy, but she would also get us a certain CD, gift card, and special note.

  • small gift certificates/cards (like $10 to walmart or a fave store), if they have ipods or zunes gift cards to those markets online, dvds, sunglasses, hats, ( i always theme our baskets around stuff that can be done outside since its getting warm but my daughter is 3 so whatever they can use outside...)

  • For my 2 boys, I am giving them Green & Blacks chocolate bars, a gift card for EB Games and a spring outfit.

    Green & Blacks has no chemicals that will lead to teenage acne, EB games because they LOVE to buy new games & the outfit to wear when this crazy weather warms up!

    Good Luck :)

  • Swim team is upon us, so I usually fill the girls baskets (I have 3 girls 11,13,15) with swim things like googles, towel, swim suit (that they have already tried on at the store) towel and caps , a cross necklaces and a gift card to the movies or skating rink. I can't put candy because my youngest is a diabetic (Type 1) so we had to come up with other things.

  • Movie tickets have always been a huge hit with my boys...who are now 18 & 16....I started doing that when they were tweens & they LOVE it to this day...we have also gotten them Arch cards (McDonald's gift card), sunglasses, new beach towels, goggles, body wash & spray that they like a new shirt to wear for church on Easter...musical toothbrushes are good with all the candy! A favorite movie with popcorn, candy & soda that they like along with a certificate for tv time to watch it without anyone complaining, certificates to have control of the radio in the car, tv for one night, pick the dinner for a night, chore pass...things like that you can make yourself & stuff them inside Easter eggs. Also...we did a hunt with my boys when they were that age. We left a clue & then sent them looking for an egg with the next clue in it...the last clue told them where to find their Easter basket. They LOVED it!
