Easter Basket Ideas for a Teenager by Kimberly Moore

by Kimberly Moore, posted to Gifts

Since I am the Mom of a teenager and since the Easter Bunny comes to our house no matter what age you are, I have had to get a bit creative about ideas for my teen. I posted some of these last year on the blog and it was very popular so Happy Easter 2012!

Flip Flops

Old Navy

Summer is right around the corner and I always lived in my flip flops during the summer. My kiddo is a Florida baby so make that year round now. You can never have enough flip flops - boys or girls.

Eden Godsoe: I wish there was a place where I could compliment your whole list but until that comes I will just say "thank you" for great ideas in this comment box. Love the list!

Krista: Great idea! These are actually even less expensive than some of the bags of candy too. I don't hate it :)

Tate's Kitchen: LOVE this list! Thank you for sharing and reminding me of all the other fun stuff that can be added.

Movie Gift Cards & Movie Candy

We like Regal!

Movie tickets are great, especially buying extra so that friends or the newest and latest can go along. I like to do theme baskets sometimes so an Easter Basket that is all about the movies turns out really cute! Movie Candy (from Walgreens), a celebrity magazine, tickets, popcorn are all fun!

Journals and Notebooks

I like to remind my teenager that he can write not just type and text. Journals or notebooks are a great Easter basket tuck-in and you can go traditional moleskine or find one with a cool graphic.

Books and more Books

Thankfully, I have a kiddo that likes to read but one of my favorite things to give (especially in this techno age) is a good old fashioned BOOK. Perfect coming from the Easter Bunny!

Magazines or Magazine Subscription

I love magazines and I love giving magazines as gifts - weird, right? But a magazine with an annual subscription that focuses on one of their interests is a great gift and addition to an Easter Basket! Think photography, outdoors, writing, computers - make it about a topic of interest.

Headphones & Earbuds

My son goes through headphones and earbuds like nothing I have ever seen. The kitty is only partially to blame but between them, I am replacing every few months. Easter Bunny to the rescue!

Added to Your List

Starbucks or Other Gift Cards

A recent study found that teens spend money on things that are very similar to what we spend money on and coffee was in the top 5 - A few $5 or $10 cards for Starbucks would be a winner!

Added to Your List

Lip Gloss, Nail Polish, ETC - New Makeup

I still remember one of my fave Easter Baskets ever - I was about 15/16 and it was full of different lip glosses, mascara, nail polish, and perfume samples. Heaven for a girlie girl!

Added to Your List

Fun T-shirts

Old Navy is my go-to store but any that has their favorite graphics will do - I like to roll up one or two in the Easter Basket and I choose ones that are more fun!

Added to Your List

Don't forget the Chocolate Bunny!

Chocolate Bunny, Jelly Beans and a few eggs - it wouldn't be Easter without them!

Added to Your List

Gluten Free Easter Candy

From Gluten Free Foodies Unite

For the Gluten Free kiddos - a list of all of the Easter Candy that is Gluten Free!

Added to Your List

iTunes Gift Cards

Any kind of gift card that gives the gift of music is usually a hit with teens - my son always appreciates new tunes!

Added to Your List

Xbox 360 Paraphernalia

Xbox is King in my house so tucking some Xbox point cards, a new Turtle Beach headset, or a new game into the Easter Basket makes me a hero!

Added to Your List

Sign them up for an Intro Class

Does your teen like to cook? or need to know more? How about photography or surfing? Musical instruments? I am getting my son guitar lessons this Easter - this is a great way for them to explore an interest!

Added to Your List

Concert Tickets

This is a pricey addition to an Easter Basket but super special and super fun! Buy a ticket for yourself to go and promise your teen that you will ignore them at the concert :)

Added to Your List

Spa Treatment

Not just for girls - IMO! My son loves getting a professional massage and after weeks of carrying around huge loads in the backpack, this is a super special treat. Manis, Pedis, Massage - these things make US feel better, why not the kiddos? Plus, Spa Week is coming and Spas nationally have $50 treatments - excellent timing!

Kristl Story: I have 3 teens, so I love this list! It will come in handy after Easter for birthdays, Christmas & gifts for their friends! Thanks!
