Teenagers might not want to dye eggs or visit the Easter Bunny anymore, but they will never turn down gifts and candy. If you are fresh out of Easter basket ideas for your teenagers, this list is sure to get the creative juices flowing again!
We’ve done the hard work and compiled eleven different types of baskets, based on some common teen hobbies. There are even shopping links included to make it easier for you to assemble the baskets.
Read through and see what you think your teen would like the best. Then, feel free to mix and match, add your own ideas and have fun celebrating the holiday with your teenager.
Easter Basket ideas for sporty teens
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 your favorite bookworm or writer
Easter baskets for beach-loving teens
Both boys and girls will appreciate this handy beach bag. The mesh design allows the sand to filter through, plus it is large enough to hold everything they need for a beach day and has some small, outer compartments to easily find things like sunscreen and chapstick. Of course, the bag will hold all the other gifts for us in this beach lover basket.
Don’t forget new shades! These aviator sunglasses come in a variety of colors and look good on virtually everyone.
For the foodie or baker
To build an Easter basket for your favorite foodie or baker, use a colander or colorful mixing bowl as the base and fill it with the smaller gifts. Most food-loving teens will love a quirky apron and oven mitts.
Food connoisseurs will appreciate the challenge of the 100 Greatest Foods of the World poster. They can try cooking some of the best ethnic foods and then scratch off a food once they have tried it.
Or you could add this recipe journal. Your teen can write in their favorite recipes and there is plenty of room to add their personal notes.
Bakers will adore this cake decorating set and if you are lucky, they might thank you with cupcakes.
Easter basket ideas for crafty or creative teenagers
If you have a crafty or creative teenager, you are in luck because there are so many gift options for you. A simple idea is to give them a jewelry making kit or a stained glass window art kit. These are both intended for teens or adults, not little kids, so it will be a fun challenge for them.
Personal care easter basket ideas for teenagers
This Easter basket is a sneaky way for you to buy your teen the necessities and label it as a gift. You could use any cute basket or bag (think about raiding the local dollar store) and fill it up with items your teen regularly uses.
If you need inspiration, here is a sampling of products to include in the personal care basket: shampoo, conditioner, razors, a new toothbrush, face wash, and body soap. So simple, right?
Make-up lover or spa day Easter Baskets
This Easter basket might be intended for teenagers, but I know a lot of moms who would like to have it too. Start with a makeup organizer and then load it up with tons of fun things.
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.
Easter baskets for VSCO girls
With summer coming, every VSCO girl will need a pair of Birkenstock sandals. Keep the box to use as the basket. Your favorite VSCO girl will appreciate this because they like reusing items and being environmentally conscious.
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!
Easter basket ideas for teenagers who love the outdoors
A hiking backpack is the perfect base for the Easter basket for your outdoorsy teenager. I love this one because it is lightweight, has a water cover, lots of little compartments and a hydration system.
If your teen spends time outside, they will definitely need bug spray. And you will rest easier knowing that they have this emergency survival kit with them. It has a whistle, flashlight, fire starter, compass and much more.
To finish the basket, consider adding a survival guidebook. The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs is a unique one filled with over 800 tips.
A movie buff basket
For the teen who thinks they have seen every movie ever made, put the Everyone’s A Critic movie challenge in the basket. It will give them something new to watch every week for a year. And don’t forget the comfy blanket to snuggle up in while they are watching movies.
Don’t forget the candy!
No Easter basket is complete without a little candy! If you have more than one basket to make, save yourself time and money by buying it in bulk.
