Random question for you guys…in my family the spouses all get each other baskets, which Darling Husband was surprised by our first Easter together because his parents never get eachother baskets or candy, it’s strictly for the kids. I was wondering which way is more popular with the bees.

We did the first two years we were together. Nothing this year because we’re pretty broke plus don’t want the temptation of candy. It would’ve been fun though!

Nope – we don’t give each other anything for Easter. Once we have kids, we’ll do Easter baskets for them though.

Yes, little things, some candy he got me a duck pillow and I got him a new video game

No, but our parents both buy us candy!

I voted Other because Darling Husband doesn’t usually make me a basket because I don’t really care either way, but he insists I make him one every year. Last year, we were looking at candy at CVS and I casually asked “you don’t need an Easter basket this year, right?” and he got all upset/offended and made such a fuss about getting his basket. I almost thought he was going to have an actual fit right there in the store, like a three year old. So yeah, DH’s Easter basket: not optional.

Nope! I didn’t even think about it. Although, his mom did get me a basket!

Nope nothing. I was hinting at how much I would love an Easter basket since my mother never got me anything for Easter (Easter is about Jesus, not about chocolate bunnies or eggs was her response whenever I asked her for something) but he didn’t pick up the hint. Next year I will buy my own Easter basket!

We do not exchange gifts on Easter.
I would definitely do an Easter egg hunt for my future children though!

We do brunch. We give ourselves stomach aches from eating too much 😉

@iheartnerds: Oh man, I am so like your SO, haha.
@Otaqueen: I don’t do hints, I was basically just like, “I’m putting together a basket for you so you better get me one too…because I like candy and it makes me happy.” haha.
Looks like I’m the weird one for being used to adults exchanging baskets!

Nope! Neither of us are into candy, and I didn’t get an Easter basket growing up, so I didn’t even think to do it. I think he may have, but he wasn’t all that enthused by it I don’t think.

We aren’t religious and have no reason to celebrate Easter. No idea if we’ll do something for kids, I’m not a fan of how candy-centric the secular side of the holiday is.

My parents still get us candy. We picked up a bit for the 2 of us, but didn’t do a direct exchange.
