We all enjoyed getting Easter baskets as kids, but what about when your kids get older? Many teenagers may not find getting Easter candy and cards as enjoyable as they did when they were younger. Why not cater your teenagers Easter basket to their current interests? Come up with a theme for their basket that fits their personality, and voila! There you have it. Here are some great Easter basket themes for teens:
The Media-Lover Basket: Popular Movies/TV/Music
For this Easter basket, include your teen’s favorite DVDs, CDs, an I-tunes gift card, an IPod, Headphones, a Netflix subscription, or movie tickets. Simply find a generous-sized basket, stuff the bottom with some fabric or tulle’, and fill up the basket with their favorite media items!
The Superhero Themed Basket
This basket is for lovers of adventure. Include superhero posters, comic books, video games, board games, or if you feel like they deserve something REALLY special, include a new gaming system, such as an Xbox or a Playstation 4. If you would like something to get their creative juices flowing, give them the chance to write their own adventure story and include a journal and some mechanical pencils.
The Difficult to Shop For Teen Basket
Still not sure what exactly would make your teen smile? Gift cards to their favorite stores are always a safe bet! For girls, it might a gift card to a clothing store, or a general gift card to the mall. For guys, a gift card to F.Y.E., or GameStop would make them happy. Everyone loves an ITunes gift card, and you can never have too much music! For an older teen who is driving, a gas-card or fast food gift card would be a great thing to include, and would help them save their money for other things. Also, if you buy the cards in smaller increments of money, you could afford to buy them gift cards to multiple places, and this would fill up their basket with several gift cards that they can use throughout the year.
The Teenage Girl Galore Basket
For a girly teen, you can never go wrong with a cosmetics and body lotions basket! Include makeup, nail polish, a poster of their favorite band or celebrity, lip-gloss, concert tickets, perfume, jewelry, hair products, and more! Personalized items such as t-shirts, bags, and purses are also all the rage right now, and something with their name or initials on it would make the perfect gift for teen girls of all ages.
If you still want to make your child’s Easter special, but are afraid they are getting too old to enjoy a basket filled with Easter candy and eggs, try making them a personalized Easter Basket! It will have special meaning because each item in the basket is catered just to them. How thoughtful it is that you carefully picked out each item with them in mind! Your teen is sure to have a happy Easter when they receive their baskets this year! For more ideas, visit the websites below:
