Easter Gifts For Teens

Make your teenager’s Easter “eggstra” special!

  1. Movie Night: This is a perfect idea for a teenager because they’ll definitely put it to use! Stuff the basket with popcorn, their favorite candy, and a gift card to a nearby movie theater. 
  2. Use A Hat: Skip the basket entirely, (because, let’s be honest, you know they’ll probably toss it after they take the goodies out) and substitute it for a hat! A baseball cap, a beanie, or a floppy beach hat would work perfectly and you can customize it.
  3. For The Artist: This is a super useful basket for the teen artist in your life! Pencils, paints, crayons, even a little sketch book would be great items to include.
  4. Backpack Basket: For this idea, you can grab a drawstring bag or a backpack and fill it with age appropriate items! Gift cards to their favorite fast food joint, they’re favorite snacks and candy, a t-shirt or two. This way, they get to enjoy the perks of an Easter basket while also having something they can use afterwards!
  5. Make It Edible: Pick up a roll of double sided tape, a few boxes of the teen’s favorite candy, and fashion them into a basket! Then stuff it with Easter essentials like fake grass and chocolate eggs.
  6. Personalized Crate: This idea is SO cool! It takes a little bit of work, but in the end it’s really worth it. Your teen not only gets a great easter basket, but they now also have a personalized storage compartment for their room!
  7. Helmet Basket: Another super practical alternative to a basket! It can be a helmet for a sport, or one for riding their wheels. Either way, they’ll be able to put it to use after they eat all the candy stuffed inside!
  8. Game Night: Grab a few card games and some other goodies to fill the basket! They can use these for a fun night with their friends or you can play them that same day.
  9. Money Honey!: If there’s one thing that teens will always appreciate no matter what, it’s money! You can even create a super awesome gift basket out of a couple of bills to really make it creative.
