Today’s Easter Gifts Are Far From The Real Thing

Easter is slowly turning into another holiday that kids demand lots of gifts on. Its hardly about eggs, bunnies and chickens any more. Parents are still determined to keep some aspect of the holiday alive and not everyone wants to go for a materialistic gift. Here are some simple Easter gift ideas.

Gift baskets
Unlike the typical Easter gift baskets filled with eggs or chocolate, you can get gift baskets in different themes. These gift baskets can have a bit of everything from a traditional Easter gift item to a contemporary gift like a keychain. Decide what you want to do, its best to get easter gift baskets and include the one or two not-so-Easter gifts separately

Bunny themed gifts
Bunny themed gifts are extremely popular, and if your children are ten years old or younger, theyll like these gifts. For Easter gifts for kids who are older, you might try and find the gift they really want in an Easter theme. Its always a good idea to make sure the gifts are somehow related to Easter, even if theres just a bunny or eggs on them. The point would be that kids associate them as Easter gifts and not just gifts. You need to exercise some caution in this yourself because your kids will try and get you to buy them something thats completely unrelated to Easter by telling you it has a BUNNY on it!

Food
One gift that kids will never say no to is food. They might not be interested in eggs as much but a nice crafty Easter gift like Easter fruit baskets or fruit bouquets can seriously tempt kids. Fresh fruit bouquets are made of fruit cut in different shapes including pineapple bunnies and the fruit can be dipped in chocolate. They make a good gift and can also be a great centerpiece for Easter lunch or an Easter party. Be sure to include some candy but dont base the entire days menu on candy because a sugar high like that will ensure the kids are bouncing off the walls for at least a week.

Electronics
This is something that kids will try and pull over their parents, the latest gadget or hardware update for their computer only with a bunny or several chicks on it. If you have the budget for it, get your children one gift that they really want but have little or nothing to do with the holiday.
