Wifey to my DH 9/2005 and always busy SAHM to my beautiful boys Elijah 12/2008 and Caeleb 6/2010
Our baby girl is arriving October 2012!!!
obstruct livery vehicles
In them... Bubble bath, a few candies, dried fruit, maybe a few new crafty things. It's really never anything major, his bday is the week after and he'll get plenty.
Mom and Dad are getting some candy and a new shower curtain :P
So far we have a hollow chocolate bunny and a stuffed bunny. I bought some large plastic eggs that I'll be using every year, and I plan to stuff them with goodies like dried fruit and bunny grahams. I also own a cute chick that peeps when you put him on your hand that I'll be handing down. Wouldn't you know the batteries for him are more expensive than he was, though? Good grief!
we put a toy, snack stuff or natural chocolate in plastic eggs and have them to hide.
i usually give one big gift from me to one or both of mine. this year my ds 3 got a castle. ya i said got lol: he knows its his easter gift from me and was given early.
DS doesn't like any candy or chocolate, which is fine by me. He'll be getting a board book and some truck stickers. I also have a handmade felt barn set w/ animals that I got in a trade that I've set aside for Easter. The year before he also got some little wood cars which he loved. I wanted to get a small amount of candy (for me and DH LOL) from the Natural Candy Store online, I found jelly beans with no HFCS, and fair trade dark chocolate bunnies and choc. eggs. Unfortunately for just a few oz. of candy the shipping was nearly $9 so I had to scrap the idea.
If DS was just a little bit older I would get him some natural art supplies.
I also just bought some German egg dye which you use on hard boiled eggs. You then oil them - they are sooo pretty.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
new rubber rain boots
some curious george stickers
Who's in the Garden
some little Peter Rabbit books from the Target $1 bin
big chocolate bunny
felted egg shakers
ceramic painted egg w/ name & year on it
little ducky stuffy in a reusable paper mache' egg
And I'm probably going to felt a dinosaur to "hatch" out of a felted egg.
We use the same basket every year filled with wool "grass" and I have special reusable paper mache' eggs for treats.
I usually do the same sorts of things for Valentines Day as well. Just some cutesy stuff, and books! I love buying books! I think I get more enjoyment out of reading them then my girls sometimes
This year, she'll be almost two and she's getting a toy wooden rabbit, a spring book, a fruit bar and bubbles I think I'm going to get a very small high quality piece of chocolate as well to tuck in her wool basket I felted for her.

Cautiously expecting surprise #4 July 2016
Sue, Mama to Fiona Aileen (2/1/09) and Maeve Penelope (10/7/11)
- Two of those Disney "magic towels," the washcloths that are shaped like Nemo and you put them in water and they expand (lol).
- A hollow chocolate bunny. It will be her first chocolate experience.
- Sidewalk chalk.
- A ceramic egg that you can grow a plant in. You break off the top and it has growing medium inside and it comes with flower seeds.
- Maybe a few things from the Target 1$ bins.
That's about it!

Someone new coming August!
I'm still working on this but love all of the ideas on here! My DD will be 14 months. I have some musical shaker eggs and plan to get the Gerda Muller Spring book. I was thinking of a small hairbrush too. I wanted to get a bolga basket to use for her easter basket but can't spend the money right now. Maybe next year...

My MIL bought DD a Beatrix Potter book as that's what DH used to get when he was a child.
We never did Easter baskets when we were growing up - just an egg hunt - is this a US tradition?
Mum to DD 9/07 and DS 01/11
I actually just wrote something about this for my blog, including ideas for theme baskets (ie. a Garden Basket, a Backyard Basket, etc). If you're interested: http://fullbellysisters.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-to-build-healthier-easter-basket.html
Good luck and happy Easter :-)
Each of my kids (6, 4, 20 months) is getting a pair of sandals for the summer (my youngest's will be hand-me-downs, but they've been put away for 2 years, so we don't think the older kids will notice), a pad of blank paper and age-appropriate coloring implements (colored pencils for the oldest, triangular crayons for the youngest, and crayon rocks for the 4-year-old who needs to work on fine motor strength), bubbles, wildflower seeds, a stuffed toy off of etsy, and a wooden cell phone, also off etsy.
We won't do candy in their baskets, but there will be candy in some eggs.
Because we observe Lent which is a time for giving up pleasures, I have no problem putting candies in the Easter basket. This is the first year DS (3 years) will really understand, so I went a little crazy. He got:
a coloring book/sticker/crayon travel set
a paint your own airplane kit
a chocolate Peter Rabbit
chocolate covered marshmallows
and some other things I can't recall.
DS2 (5 mo) is getting a frog sponge animal that makes sounds for the bath.
I'm excited about the liner I thought of for the basket. I have a stash of several dozen handkerchiefs which I have no idea what to do with. I'm going to tack them together as a cute liner.
