Gift Guide for Your Teen's Easter Basket|

Here are great ideas for your teen’s Easter basket! Our teens may not believe in the Easter Bunny anymore, but we can fill a basket for them!

Fill your teen's Easter basket with love!

We need to remember that our teens still like to have fun and have something to look forward to. These gifts are all fun and/or useful. Let’s make Easter a fun holiday to look forward to.

Easter activities for teenagers

A fun activity locally that families do here, is post pics of pretty colored eggs in their window for kids to look for on neighborhood walks. Another idea might be for your older kids to put on a puppet show or video for younger kids. Be creative, and let your teens think of fun things to do! *This post may contain affiliate links. My full disclosure policy is here.

Most of the posts that I tried to find to link to this article had really silly ideas for teens at Easter, so here are some that I came up with after talking to my boys and their cousins who are all older teens.

Involve your teens in the planning of this holiday. They love to help with the younger kids. Decorate and hide the eggs. Stuff plastic eggs for younger siblings.

Help your teen find a volunteer opportunity for your teen at church or with your city. Visit an assisted living facility and give little treats to the elderly.


Here are more ideas for teen’s at Easter including non candy Easter basket ideas…

Watch Passion of the Christ as a family and discuss the meaning of this important holiday. (Caution, this is for older teens.) And, watch Hop for some lighthearted fun! Movies are great additions to a teen’s Easter basket.

Hello! My name is Melanie and I love to encourage moms of teens and tweens!

Are you ready to create a stronger, healthier relationship with your teens? Do you want to do all that you can to foster a stronger bond with your family? 

I will give your encouragement to take care of yourself in the midst of this messy place that we call life. I’d like to help you with some strategies to make things a little bit easier.

Let me help you to parent more confidently. With more love. With more connection.


  1. Forget the kids, I’d like all the gal gifts please and the headphones Great list.

    • HA! I know:) Feel free to share this list with your spouse or significant other as well!
      I asked my nieces and sons, and tried to choose some reasonable priced items. Glad you like the list.

  2. Excellent basket choices! (For moms and dads too!)

    • I got a similar comment yesterday! I love this list too:)

  3. These are nice gift ideas. It is always hard for me to shop for teens. This is very helpful!

    • Thank you! Our sons and daughters approved the list.

  4. So timely! I’m mailing my son’s “easter basket” to him today and will be looking for a couple of these items. I hope they never grow out of wanting an Easter basket…

    • Thank you! I love finding great gifts for their baskets:) I am still needing to get them together for my boys!

  5. What a tough time to be a teenager, especially a graduating senior. Your ideas are great.

    • Thank you! Yes, we have a college senior which he has even said is not so bad as if he were losing his senior year in high school.

  6. Great ideas. I used to use the really big plastic eggs (like the size pantyhose used to come in) and stick anything and everything inside them that would fit. Two-piece swim suits – top and bottom in different eggs. Make-up! Gift cards. My daughter is 30. I kind of miss making fun baskets for her.

    • My mother-in-law did that too! She would wad up money, and it would explode out when the kids would open it. She had some even bigger ones, I wonder where she got them? I had forgotten about them. Happy Easter!

  7. The baskets! I love Easter baskets! In fact, you made me remember to do one for a loved one and get it shipped!

    • Glad I could help! It’s hard to believe that Easter is one month from today!

  8. Love the volunteer suggestion. Many churches have physically distanced opportunities. Another idea is to do a spring activity as a family and donate $$$ you would have spent on baskets to your food pantry.

    • That is a great idea! It’s always fun to find an activity for the entire family:)

  9. What fun ideas you have come up with. My teenagers are now in their mid-20’s, but I still like to buy them things they would have bought themselves, so they won’t have to! (Toilet paper rolls in their stockings were a huge hit at Christmas this year! 😉

    • I love that you gifted t.p.! It’s always fun to love on our kids with small gifts. My oldest 2 are in their 20s as well.

    • So glad that you liked. I love any excuse to love on my kids:)
