Do you still make an Easter basket for your older kids?

I feel guilty if I don't include my eldest (20) in on the Easter basket- is that silly? I know she needs things for school and her dorm, so I put said things in a basket along with some candy. Do you think that's too childish?

  • Not childish, just being a mom. Don't worry. So many kids out there wish they had a mom like you! They'll look back and see that you cared when they were included and love you all the more for your thoughtfulness at giving them something they needed along with their treats.

  • Nope not at all, I'm 32 years old and would love to receive something like that still. Sometimes it's not about the "easter basket" but the idea that you still think of your children, and that is a great way to let them know that you haven't forgot about them...and thank you, I think I have a couple people in my life who will be receiving baskets this year...just so they know I thought about them.

  • Nope- not silly at all. I still make baskets for my boys too. They still live at home- but who doesnt love goodies?! :p And when they ever move out, I'll probably still get them a choc bunny for old times sake. :) Heck, even my husb gets one so he stays out of the kids' baskets! -lol

  • no not silly...
    My MIL makes baskets for me & DH (we each get our own lil' basket). she is the sweetest she even makes a candy basket for my nephew-that is 21! lol :-)

    My mom stopped giving me baskets around the teen years. baskets where linked to the easterbunny & hunting for eggs.. so once i was too old for that.. i was too old for the basket..
