Spring is in the air, chocolate bunnies are filling the grocery stores, and that means it’s time to gather some Easter basket fillings. If it’s teenagers you’re trying to please, you might have to get creative and choose practical and fun items that they would like at any time of year. Here are some appealing Easter basket ideas for teenagers that will certainly bring smiles on Easter morning.
Creative Containers and Themes
There’s no rule that says your Easter basket has to be in a basket. Make your container part of the gift by using a functional item like a make-up case, sports bag or tote bag. For a themed basket, fill any type of container with related presents and sweet treats. A painted flower pot with moss filling would be a gorgeous container for a garden-lover. Try using a mixing bowl if it’s a future pastry chef who is getting the basket.
No matter what type of basket or theme you choose, remember that including that classic chocolate bunny is always essential.
If you’re making a basket for a sixteen-year-old girl, you’ll make her happy by making a beauty-themed Easter basket. Include items like lip gloss, jewelry, eye shadow and nail polish and place them in a makeup case. If you’re teenager has a sweet tooth, include Easter candy that fits the girly theme, like ring pops and candy necklaces.
If you’re making a basket for an athlete, try a sports-related theme. Some ideas include football-shaped cookies, bobbleheads, ear buds, beef jerky and other favorite snacks. If space allows, include some sports balls as well.
Fill a colorful toiletries tote with spa-related items for a fun and functional Easter basket. Sometimes teenage girls want nothing more than pampering items. Here are some possible items you can include: loofah, nail polish, manicure set, body wash, chapstick, face mask and a chocolate Easter candy – all perfect for pampering.
If your teenager likes music and movies, that makes things easy. Items like CDs and DVDs are always a good bet. Or include a gift card to the local music store or movie theater. For snacks, stick in butter popcorn, Sour Patch Kids or other movie candy.
Easter Baskets For Teenagers
Sometimes teenagers can be the hardest group to please. But if you skip the traditional stuffed bunnies and plastic eggs and opt for functional Easter basket items that teenagers love, you’ll definitely be the cool mom on the block this Easter.
