Though my kids are 12 and 15 now, the Easter Bunny still makes visits to our house. Even when they were younger, I tried to lean heavy on the non-candy options for their baskets. If I can be honest, it’s mostly for my benefit. My kids are robots and never eat all the candy… but I certainly do. (I would be elbow deep into their baskets two weeks after Easter.) So I made the switch. My Easter Basket for teens? Less candy, more small gifts.
Don’t get me wrong. These aren’t Christmas/Birthday level gifting options. I think of it as more “stocking stuffer” level.
Who Doesn’t Love A Theme
I have a friend who treats the Easter basket as a way to prepare for summer. She’s always gifted flip flops, a cool beach towel, and a swimsuit in their baskets. (I do love a good theme!)
I usually get items in 3 categories: candy (yes, they still SOME get candy), a book or small toy, and something personal. For the personal item, I get especially proud of myself when I think of an item they can use on Easter – for example, a new purse for Lola to match her Easter dress for church.
