15 Easter Basket Ideas for Teens

My daughter can drive a car and merge onto the highway. My son is the only person in our house who can navigate the many remote controllers to operate the television. But the Easter Bunny still visits our house. In fact, if I can be so bold, I will be a Grandma and I will make sure the Easter Bunny finds them. 

Don’t get me wrong, we do include sweet treats. But I feel like they have access to so much candy at school and when hanging out with friends. It’s incredibly frustrating, to be honest. I go through so much trouble to pack a healthy lunch but then I’ll often find candy wrappers in their lunch bags. It’s fine. Life is about balance, but I don’t want to overload them with candy on Easter too. 

I like to make sure their baskets have some goodies they will enjoy for more than one day. To be clear, they don’t make an “Easter list” like they do for Christmas. These are all curated by the, ahem… the Easter Bunny.

Teen Easter Basket Goodies

#1 Spa Headband

This is the headband every TikToker  is wearing when they are doing their skincare routine tutorials. I’ll admit, at first, I thought it looked like one of those neck pillows you wear on an airplane. 

#2 Wildflower Seeds

We have the opposite of whatever a perfectly curated lawn is so since my kids were babies I would give them a packet of seeds every Spring. They’ve learned the best spots with the most sun and they’ve scattered packets like these for years. It’s fun to see flowers shoot up (except for the year my son scattered the seeds mostly on a pile of rocks). 

#3 Cosmetic/ Toiletries Case

My daughter has two of these and keeps one in the center console of her car. The other she uses for overnights and travel. 

#4 Family Faceoff

Okay, okay. This one is selfish. This is our game! We created Family Faceoff and it’s like charades, a scavenger hunt, and karaoke night had a baby. The box happens to be perfect size for an Easter basket.

#5 Boomerang

Am I the only one obsessed with boomerangs? I had a wooden one as a child and never quite mastered the art. This one is much more my speed. 

#6 Burt’s Bees Set

I use every piece of these little gift sets

#7 The Most Comfortable Slides

My kids are into sports, these are the slides so many kids (including my own) wear before and after they are on the court. Ooofos are THE MOST comfortable shoes. Penn bought a pair for himself. 

#8 Crossbody Bag

I actually got this crossbody bag for my daughter for her birthday and she loves it. It’s an easy way to hold her phone and keys. It’s small so it would sit nicely in an Easter basket. 

#9 Claw Hair Clip

As much as I thought claw hair clips went out of style in the 80s, they are very much in use by teens right now. 

#10 Mad Libs

I mean … who doesn’t love Mad Libs? It doesn’t matter how old you are.

#11 3D Printing Pen

This is one of those cool gifts we give the kids but we really just want it ourselves. 

#12 Good Energy Bracelets

My daughter has a stack of bracelets on her arm and I love the positive messages. 

#13 Skincare Facial Roller

My daughter bought this facial roller for herself, then I went out and got my own. It feels so good on your skin after a long day. 

#14 Easy Clean Water Bottle

We have a water bottle issue in our house. The “issue” is my kids (and husband) seem to leave them everywhere. We now only buy water bottles as gifts. If they need new ones in between they have to use their own money. It’s been a huge incentive for them to not lose them!

#15 Fidget Cube

Are we the only adults that end up stealing our kid’s fidget toys? It’s me. I’m the problem. It’s me. This one is going in the baskets but I should really just get one for myself.
