There's no limit to what you can give for Easter -- from stuffed animals for children to a $100 Grand Easter Basket from Harry & David that contains more than 4 Royal Riviera pears, 3 apples, 10 ounces of "chocolate moose" popcorn and other goodies. According to BigInsight, consumers will spend an average of about $21, or $2.2 billion total, on gifts this year.
