The holiday weekend is here!  Many of you might be grabbing those last minute gift ideas and Easter outfit accessories. Possibly a hat!

Some places are seeing a spike in sales! Newswatch 16`s Ryan Leckey spoke with local craft professional and columnist in The Valley's Child, Francine Pisano Dudziec.

"Options instead of sugary sweets and candy, is give your child a beach bucket which is great to use all summer long.  You can put sunglasses in there, a kite, all kinds of toys," said Dudziec.

"Another item outside the basket is if you have a sports enthusiast at home, get a helmet, fill some sports tickets in there, some games. It`d be perfect for them. Another outside of the basket item: cups, mugs, water bottles, things they can use every day. Fill them with pencils, crayons, crafts, bubble wands, decorate them with stickers. Flash lights are great items all year round. They can use them with sleepovers and camping trips. And finally, don`t forget your four legged friend! Get some treats, put some flowers around them, put them in a flower pot. Anything they enjoy!"
