Easter Basket IdeasLast week we posted ways to save money on Easter Baskets and I know for me, when the kids were little I did a lot of my shopping online, to avoid having to hide stuff from them in the store while they were with me.  As my kids grow older and I shy away from tons of candy, I like to look for fun items they may want or need.  Here are a few unique gift ideas.

Today only Amazon is having a sale on select toys and games from Hasbro at up to 40% off.  I love the Rubik’s cube for only $6.29, or the 3 pack of water guns for $7.99 that you could split up for each kid.

Crayola 64 Ct Short Colored Pencils $6.90

Plush Stuffed anima Hot/cold Thermal Gel Compress 20% off and comes in 12 animals, including the duck pictured above, a lamb, pig, gator and more!

My daughter is into jewelry and has 2 of these colored bracelets that have a magnetic clip so it’s easy for her to put on.  She was thrilled when a teacher at school complimented her on them.  I told her the Spring trend is to layer the bracelets and now she wants more! Guess it’s good they are 48% off right now.

How about a coloring book for the older kids?  I love this Flower Designs Coloring Book.  I can see this taking up some nice time on car trips.

Pool toys are always an hit and my kids love these Water Bomb Splash Balls and this is a set of 12 for $7.99.

My 11 year old loves painting her nails so I think this set of 12 metallic polishes is awesome.

The Titanium Tornado Baseball Necklaces are a big hit with the boys and they come in many colors.

What are some of your favorite unique basket ideas?

My husband and I are listening to American Sniper on Audio right now.  I like to read a book before I see the movie.  We are testing out Audible for free and I’m loving listening to something while I’m running errands or waiting on kids at car pick up.  Hubby and I are sharing the same account and we are listening to the same book separately.  We have the app on our phones and chose not to sync them, so it remembers where I left off in the book but doesn’t mess up his place.  I love this feature because he and I can listen to the same book and we can discuss on date night!

Audible also has daily book deals, so once you try out the program be sure to check those out. My husband has been getting the daily emails so he can snag the deal if he sees a good one.

Amazon Lightning Deals ~ Join the Waitlist (It pays off)

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I earn a small commission if you click and make a purchase. Thanks for supporting Saving The Family Money. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

Lightning deals have a limited number in stock and once they are sold out, they are gone.  And sometimes this happens in under 1 minute!  However, I do encourage you to “join waitlist”.

When you “join the waitlist” you are notified if an item becomes available.  Many times people add items to their carts during lightning deals, and then decide not to purchase them.  This frees up an item for someone on the waitlist.

Yesterday my friend joined the wait list for a LEGO item and was told she was over 500 on the list. But guess what?  She ended up getting the item, at the Lightning Deal price!

Once you are on the waitlist, keep Amazon open and you will get an alert if the item becomes available for you.  Then you have a limited time to complete the transaction.
