extravagant easter gifts?

Easter is usually a holiday where we give our kids big gifts. Usually outside gifts since it's starting to get warm. The year before last, we got them a youth razr. Last year, a swing set. Any ideas for this year? They have bikes and scooters and stuff, and I hate tramps. I was thinking about an outdoor theater, but I was going to get one of those this summer, anyway. Pools are out of the question, too. Tia.

No help here.  We do baskets, not big gifts.

After being cooped up all winter, we like to get them out door gifts at the beginning of spring. Thanks for your suggestion, though.

You're setting your own bar.  If you go big, you'll always have to go big.  I know from experience :/

We do gardening equipment. They love having their own vegetable gardens so we get them their own tools/seeds/gloves....stuff like that. Not extravagent but it could be brought larger scale.

Maybe a soccer goal and some soccer balls or basketball court. How old are they by the way, maybe then I can give more suggestions.

It's just been a long time since I was a kid lol. I don't know what all outside stuff there is nowadays.
