Easter Basket Ideas for Teens

I love filling Easter baskets! My stepkids are all in their teens but that doesn’t mean I am any less excited to watch them run downstairs and start plowing through their Easter baskets, just like they did when they were little. Filling Easter baskets with fun and unique items has become a little more challenging as they get older, however. I’ve always tried to include more non-candy items than candy,  mostly because our kids just aren’t big candy eaters (weirdos!) – I mean, we still have Halloween candy from the previous Fall in our pantry. Maybe it’s just gross candy…because if I haven’t finished it….

So while coming up with cute, fun and useful Easter basket filler on a budget has always been a challenge, searching and finding products that are not only cool and useful but also affordable is my totally my jam! Below are my Easter basket filler ideas for both teen boys and girls. To keep the total basket cost for each kid around $25-30, I normally include just one larger non-candy item, like a t-shirt, with a couple of smaller non-candy items, like a card game and earrings. Lay it all on a healthy layer of Easter grass and add a box of Peeps and pastel Twizzlers (their favorite!) and wait for the Easter morning oohs and ahhs!

  1. Fun ideas! Loving all the pineapple products too, it’s like hurry up summer!

  2. I am obsessed with pineapple and absolutely love the phone cover! These baskets are a great idea although I have to confess, back when I was a teenager, I was super happy with a chocolate egg ahah! xx Corinne

  3. Great ideas! Thanks so much for the inspiration i better get organised and do it for my boys

  4. What a nice way to make teen boys go easter hunting cus in my mind they’d probably not want to.

  5. I haven’t ever seen Uno emoji! That looks like so much fun – and definitely different. My kids are grown, but it would still be a fun party game for adults. I also love your no-candy options!

  6. I love the teen girl pineapple basket! When I was a kid growing up I loved Easter because I was always very excited to see what was inside my Easter basket. When I have kids I can’t wait to make them cute little baskets. 🐰

  7. Lovely ideas! We don’t have this tradition of Easter baskets, kids get gifts and treats for their b-days and for Christmas only. For Easter, we go to church and then we have a big family meal with dishes that are specially prepared for this occasion. That’s about it!
    It is fun to discover different traditions in different cultures!

  8. Love these ideas! When I first met my husband, he had actually never gotten an Easter basket so I made one for him. It was a fun project 🙂

  9. I don’t have teens yet but I love your funky Easter basket selections! I hope you have a great holiday!
