Top 5 Easter Gifts

This year, I have three boys for the Easter bunny to bring gifts to. One just had a birthday, and all three need ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Candy is a definitely a focus for this holiday- with Peeps, Cadbury eggs, jellybeans, etc. After we celebrate for the entire weekend, there is plenty of candy to go around! So I try not to fill the basket with only candy.

So I asked (two of) them what they are hoping the Easter bunny brings them. So here are the Top 5 Easter gifts, according to a 7 year old boy and a 5 year old boy. Once again, LEGOs top the list...

Nexo Knights: Ultimate Clay
1. LEGO NEXO Knights. Lego's newest line is the Nexo Knights. The 'cool' thing about these is that you can download an app that lets you scan the Nexo Knights' shield and you get a 'power' to use in the game. My 5 year old thinks it's the best invention ever!

2. Pley Subscription.  If your child might be interested in a new toy, each month. This could be a great way to do that for them! With subscriptions as low as $9.99/month for one toy, this is definitely worth a try!

Pillow Pets Dream Lites
3. Pillow Pets Dream Lights. These come in all types, but Amazon has good prices on them! Your kids will love them at night, when they glow on their ceiling. Just make sure that you have AAA batteries on hand...

4. Chocolate bunny. This is the highlight for us every year. Daddy loves to pick this out, and the boys love to devour it! How big is too big? We still have yet to figure this out...

Llama Llama
5. Books. I like to make sure that they are getting something NOT chocolate in their baskets, so this is a great way for them to get excited about a new book. This one is a family favorites! We also love Berentstain Bears and the Easter Story.

LEGO also carries some low cost Easter specific items, like Easter Chick. And if you have a toddler, be sure to check out... No Candy Ideas for Toddler Easter Baskets

Easter is a fun holiday to celebrate with your littles. Egg hunts, bunny pictures, dyeing Easter eggs, and a big family meal are all a part of our traditions. How does your family celebrate?
