It’s true that teenagers might not want to decorate eggs (although I’m very lucky because mine do) or visit the Easter bunny for pictures anymore but it’s my experience that they won’t turn away free gifts and candy.
I also guarantee that you won’t find pre-filled Easter Basket arrangements at your local grocery or fine drug store but that’s okay because we’ve come up with some great ideas for Easter Baskets for your teen.
Choose from the following ideas or feel free to mix and match these great ideas based on likes or dislikes. I’ve bunched them together based on favorite hobbies and sports. I’ve even included shopping links for you to make your shopping a bit easier.
For your favorite book worm or writer:
Choose a cute book tote like this one which will be the base of our book lover basket. Add a classic book or two such as To Kill A Mockingbird and Lord Of The Flies. The classics are always sure to be a hit with a true book worm.
Make-up lover or spa day Easter Baskets:
If you know your teen likes a certain brand, then you can look for specific items. Otherwise, experiment and put lots of different products in there so they can try it all out. You can look at your neighborhood pharmacy for inexpensive options or online for the higher end brands.
For A New Driver:
Every new driver should have a Roadside Emergency Kit in their car. I love this one because it comes with a first aid kit too. You can use the kit as the base and put some other small gifts inside of it.
You can add things like keychains, auto visor clips, and air fresheners. If it is still cold where you live, driving gloves would be a thoughtful gift. And of course, gift cards to the local gas station!
For your sports enthusiast:
No matter what sport your teen is involved in, they will love this duffel bag, which comes in a variety of fun colors. Choose your teens’ favorite one and then the bag becomes the base for our sporty Easter basket.
Stuff it with Adidas slides (a must-have for every sporty teen) and these headphones, which are made to stay in place during exercise. Luckily for your teenager, the headphones also come in a multitude of colors.
Next, add in these water bottles. You can never have too many of them, plus you can use them to hold smaller items in the basket. For example, energy bars and sports headbands fit well inside the water bottles.
For the moviegoer:
Of course, your teen thinks they’ve seen every movie under the sun worthwhile so I think you should add Everyone’s A Critic movie challenge which will give them a movie to watch once a week for a year.
And don’t forget the super comfy blanket to snuggle up with while watching these movies because no movie would be complete without one.
For your outdoors enthusiast:
This awesome hiking backpack is the base of this Easter basket. It comes with several pockets and is large and roomy just perfect for all the things you need to carry with you to have a safe and eventful hiking expedition. Of course, no hiking backpack would be complete without a first aid kit made just for hiking and an emergency survival kit. To finish your special basket why not add a nature survival guidebook such as this lovely boxed set of three books every outdoors person would love or maybe The Lost Art Of Reading Nature’s Signs which turns every hike into a game of detection familiarizing the hiker with nature.
For the crafty teen:
There are so many options here. Why not use a painter’s apron as the Easter basket- fill the pockets with gifts and use it to wrap the rest. There are creative kits such as a jewelry maker’s kit or another kit like a stained glass window making kit– these kits are made for teens or adults not little kids so it should be a real challenge.
No basket would be complete without the candy!
Buying in bulk is a great idea if you have more than one teen to buy for like we do (we have three- YIKES!)
There are so many neat ideas to make special Easter baskets for your teenager and to give them the gift of excitement for Easter morning just like when they were little.
Let us know what your ideas for a teen inspired Easter basket are- we’d love to hear all about it in the comment section.
Take care until next time,
