20 Easter Gifts Under $20

Sure, chocolate is awesome, and I want my kids to have plenty in their Easter baskets (so there’s enough for me to steal). Beyond the sweet stuff, I also like to use their baskets as a way to get us through the last of winter with some charming little distractions that herald spring and help break up winter boredom. I’ve gathered 20 great options, from wind-ups to cuddly animals, that are sure to bring a smile on Easter. All under $20.
