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

A quirky tote bag is the base for our book lover basket. Add a classic book or two, like To Kill A Mockingbird or The Catcher In The Rye. A true bookworm will always appreciate a timeless novel.

For a budding writer, this unique journal is a nice touch. And these pens are sure to inspire them to write.

Make sure to include a soft blanket. It is perfect for your little bookworm to snuggle under while they read. Some fun, novelty socks complete the look for you.

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.

Make sure to stock your teen up with everything they will need for the summer season, like a fun beach towel, sunscreen, and this waterproof phone case.

Don’t forget new shades! These aviator sunglasses come in a variety of colors and look good on virtually everyone.

Lastly, consider adding an inflatable beach ball, or an outdoor game, like ladder golf or beach tennis.

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.

If your teen likes to draw, they can never have too many sketchbooks and pencils. Top it off with a book for inspiration.

Your favorite painter will surely appreciate more canvases, brushes and paints. You could put the smaller items inside this painter’s apron to creatively wrap the gift.

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

You can really get creative with this gift

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.

Make sure to include makeup wipes, nail polish, bubble bath or bath bombs and lotion too!

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.

Next, add some trendy stickers and scrunchies to the box. A Hydroflask is a must for every VSCO girl. To finish it off, add a couple of colorful Pura Vida bracelets.

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

Look at all the compartments to stuff with gifts!

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

Of course, the movie buff Easter basket needs to go in a popcorn bowl. Up your popcorn game by replacing the regular kind with a few gourmet ones or popcorn seasonings (or both!)

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.

Most teenagers love chocolate, but if your teen does not, check out this bag of candy instead. And don’t forget the marshmallow Peeps! Love them or hate, they are an Easter classic.
