    Easter baskets

    At what age do you quit giving your children baskets?

    I would think 12 may be to old for some. Sometime adult children get baskets if the parents are willing to fill them and the children are willing to receive them who knows.

    Re: Easter baskets

     My DD age 30,dear nephew 28 and neice 25 still insist on the annual Easter egg hunt.This is my DS's doing because she spoils them and never says no.
    This year there is a twist.They have to share the egg hunt with their new baby cousin who will be 8 months old.My youngest DS had her first baby last June.There is a 24 year gap between the baby and the one who used to be the baby.
    My DS fills the eggs with change and silly little $ store gifts.The all also get a basket with candy and gift cards.
    Since our family only gets together about 4 times a year it is a great time to spoil the kids.

    DD usually misses out on an Easter gift at home because Easter usually falls near her birthday.

    DD is 8 & I need to get on with getting something for her basket this year.  I guess I'll stop when she says she's too old or moves out!  DH & I still have three stockings at Christmas: one at our house, one at his parent's house, & one at my parent's house!

    Re: Easter baskets

    In my family, even adults get baskets. My mother prepares one for my father, myself, my husband and my brother. I prepare them for my parents, my husband and adult kids besides the little one.

    For us, it's about enjoying a time of family and love.

    No major gifts for Easter baskets here. I do recall one Easter tho (childhood) that I got a rabbit plant holder with a green plant in it. I loved it!

    Re: Easter baskets

     I made Easter baskets until my daughters were adults.Now they have their own children and I no longer make them.

    For my grand children I was thinking maybe a new outfit for each of them.
