Gasp. No Easter baskets?
15 years ago when my kids were younger (well, weren't we ALL younger then?), I replaced the candy with little books, special pens, Beanie Baby, plastic eggs with some quarters, etc. and through the years the items have changed with their ages, a DVD or CD, movie coupons, and so on. I do buy a miniature chocolate treat to put into each basket but that's it. The Easter Egg hunt for the plastic eggs now with my grand-niece will have little items, too, but no candy. We don't miss it at all now.
