How much do you spend on Easter Baskets per kid?

If you don't celebrate Easter then click away, I don't need to see you tell me that you don't celebrate.

This year I spent approx $60 on 3 kids. I was "trying" to keep it cheap. I can do better next year with cheapness...

  • normally, less than $10..he's only had 4-Easters, and we've reused the same basket, so far. this year, i picked up a couple dvds and stuck them it was a tad more expensive. we don't go crazy on baskets...usually a few of his fave candies (he's not really into chocolate...who is this kid??), eggs(we also reuse the plastic eggs year2year, if they hold up.) and a ball or few HotWheels.

  • I dont have a set $ amount and I have always thought it ridiculous to be monetarily even.

    I buy the same number of gifts for each child and base what I buy on that years budget.

  • I did not go cheap on Easter, in fact I don't even want to guess. All those few dollar items really add up over a period of time. In less than one month its my birthday, Christmas and my son's birthday and then there is nothing so Easter is an excuse for some outdoor type toys and spring things. I didn't spend more than $12 on any item but I started to take the stuff out of hiding last night and realized that I went a little nutty.

  • This year I spent $34.35 on DH, DD & myself. Our baskets just have candy. My DD doesn't really want any toys anymore.

  • This year I spent about $15 on my sons basket. I got him some candy and a soccer ball. He's been wanting a soccer ball so that's what he's getting :)

  • I don't really have set spending amount, I just buy them whatever toys they are into at that time. Candy and stuff, usually $10 because we just buy like bulk Hershey's/Wonka stuff at Sam's. I have no idea what I spent this year, guessing maybe $70-80 (3 kids)

  • I spent on my 2 dd's and my nephew 38.00 this year. I am not sure how much I normally spend. I was trying not to go overbored this year. Usually I buy so much stuff that I can't fit it all in their baskets lol. So I was trying to downsize howmuch I buy lol. I bought my girls each a pair of sun glasses those were 6.00 a piece. I bought each of my girls a my little pony (they love those) that was 5.00 each. The rest I got from the dollar tree. I love that store lol. I buy them each a basket 1.00 each, buy them each some bubbles, and each sidewalk chalk. I bought my nephew a pack of cars and then 1 other car that was 2.00, then I bought the rest candy which was each 1 chocolate bunny 1.00 each, a pack to slit of jelly beans, dum dum suckers, necklace candy and ring pops 1.00 each. I was trying not to get chocolate my almost 3 year old nephew just got diagnosed with lactose intolerance poor guy he loves his dairy stuff

  • about $20 each but we're also planning a trip to Grandma's this year - I'm sure they'll get more then enough candy and sweets.
