Easter Presents For The Kids (Gift Ideas)

Do I believe in the Easter bunny? No. I can't remember the Easter bunny ever visiting me as a child. For Easter was always about the resurrection. About Jesus rising from the dead! About how every morning is Easter morning from now on. But I do think this Lent/Easter season is a good one for gift-giving. A good opportunity for parents and grandparents to help focus the excitement in the right direction, in a heavenly direction.
