12 Trendy Easter Basket Ideas Teens Will Love
Think your favorite teenager is too old for an Easter basket? Think again! From bright-colored notebooks to tech gear, we've rounded up gift ideas teens will love.
Easter morning is synonymous with waking up to a basket filled with treats, egg hunts, and waiting for a special delivery by the beloved Bunny himself. All of this is fun for young boys and girls, but what about the teenager in your family? As the kids get older, it becomes harder to come up with clever ideas. She may have outgrown kid-sized candy, stuffed bunnies, and toys, but there's no denying that fact that the teen in your life will be excited about an Easter basket full of beauty products, sophisticated sweets, and school supplies.
For an older take on a classic Easter bunny-themed basket, switch things up by including the holiday motif reinterpreted. Incorporate things like a pocket-sized beauty mist or a two-way headphone splitter that let's your teen and a friend or sibling listen to music together. Then, trade in chocolate eggs for salt water taffy—which is just colorful and whimsical, but no less sweet. Other basket stuffers your teen love? Games, gift cards, and mini beauty essentials are bound to get their stamp of approval.
Easter, at any age, is a happy time of year. Teens and preteens alike still want to participate in the family traditions even if they've outgrown their seat at the kids' table. Whether your teen is an aspiring artist, style maven, diligent student, or all of the above, consider this your all-in-one guide to filling a basket with on-the-trend treats and sweets. After all, who doesn't love to wake up to a surprise on Sunday morning?
