Teenagers can be a hard lot to please. Even the slightest infringement against the opinions and needs of one may mean a moody environment in your household. You never want that, especially on holidays. Let’s hope the terrific three Easter basket ideas I have listed will appease teenagers around the country come holiday time.
What do teenagers like to do?
Every person is different, so not every teenager in the world is going to want the same things in his or her baskets. You may have to be somewhat mindful of those preferences that your teen does have, because ,frankly speaking, one never wants a kind act of giving an Easter basket to turn into a pouty afternoon for your teenager. For our baskets, let’s start with a budget of about $50 and manage from there.
You have a teenager who likes music but you can’t seem to understand what sort of music it is that they like. A perfect remedy to this would be an iTunes gift card. Load ten dollars on there and you will have a happy camper after they download a few jams.
Gift cards are a teen’s best friend when it comes to Easter baskets, so go ahead and get ready to give a few away. If your teen drives, go ahead and give them a $20 dollar gas card. If they don’t drive, substitute it for a favorite restaurant or store to shop at.
Everybody likes movies, so don’t shy away from giving gift cards to a local theatre for them to see a picture or two. Easter is also a paradise for any candy lover, so a basket has to include the favorite candy of your teenager. There are ways to mix and match what you give to your teenager when it comes to baskets, as the following three examples will show.
A few gift cards to the favorite shops of your teenagers
Gum, chocolates, and assortment of Easter themed candies
Books, especially if your teen is a reader
Chapstick, lotion, and random toiletry things
A kind handcrafted card
If your teen likes coffee, get them a pound of their favorite kind, or even a gift card to their favorite coffee shop
Clever pens like gel pens and ones full of glitter and color
Perfume or cologne of the most dashing fragrance
A few DVDs
Candy, of course
A gift card to a day spa or tickets to a professional ball game in your city
Videogames or a subscription to Netflix will make teens happy
Socks and other useful everyday things
Loads of chocolates and sweets
When it comes to the Easter basket itself, keep it clean looking and simple. Get plenty of that Easter grass, cheap baskets, and eggs and find a theme that is colorful and regal. Teens will be concerned with what is inside, so make sure they can get there with a great looking basket.
