Make this year’s Easter celebration memorable for your teenager. Check out these  fantastic Easter basket ideas for teens, ranging from trendy gift items to sophisticated sweets and practical supplies. 

Phone Case

Teens often want to express their unique style through their choice of phone accessories. A trendy phone case can be both fashionable and functional, providing protection for the device and making a personal statement. Choose a design that suits your teen’s personality, from pop culture references to bold patterns and colors.

Personalized Phone PopSockets

Smart phone accessories are always a hit with teenagers, and a personalized PopSocket makes for a thoughtful addition to their daily essentials. Customize a PopSocket with themed designs, names, initials, or pictures of their favorite hobbies or mascots to make this utility accessory a cool and unique present. Several online shops offer custom PopSockets, giving you many personalized options for the perfect Easter basket addition for teens.

Wireless Earbuds

Teens love listening to their favorite tunes, podcasts, and audiobooks on the go. And losing wireless earbuds is a constant for most teens, so another pair is always welcome. This is the plan of Robin Donovan from All Ways Delicious, who says, “This year, I’ll tuck some new wireless earbuds in the Easter basket, inside a plastic egg, obviously.”

Portable Chargers

With busy schedules and constant device usage, a portable charger can be a lifesaver for teens. Compact and convenient, these on-the-go battery packs allow users to charge their devices while away from regular power sources.

Custom Jewelry

Custom jewelry provides a creative way for teens to express their individuality. Consider gifting a personalized bracelet or necklace engraved with the teen’s initials, name, or a special message. Etsy has an extensive selection of customized jewelry that you can choose from.

Art Supplies

An Easter basket filled with art supplies can be a real treat for a teen who loves drawing, painting, or crafting. It encourages their creativity and interests. Some items to include in an art-themed Easter basket:

  • Sketchbooks: Provide a high-quality sketchbook for them to unleash their creativity.
  • Colored pencils, markers, or paints: Choose a good set of coloring tools your teen can use to create artwork.
  • Stencils or templates: These can be a great addition to help them explore new design ideas.
  • Brushes, palettes, or drawing pens: Add some professional tools to help them enhance their skills.


If your teen enjoys writing, why not create an Easter basket focused on journaling? These items can encourage their passion for writing and self-expression:

  • Beautiful journals: Find a stylish and sturdy journal.
  • Pens and pencils: A set of high-quality writing instruments makes a great addition.
  • Stickers or washi tape: These decorative elements can be used to personalize their journal pages.
  • Bookmarks or clips: Help them keep track of their pages with these functional accessories.

This thoughtful journal-themed Easter basket will inspire your teen to write, reflect, and document their thoughts and experiences.


A stylish pair of sunglasses can protect your teen’s eyes from the sun and make a fashion statement. With a wide range of styles and colors, select a pair that best reflects their taste and complements their wardrobe. Consider trendy styles like aviators, cat-eye, or oversized frames for a stylish look.


Socks are often overlooked as a fashion statement, but they can bring playfulness and color to outfits. Opt for quirky patterns or bold designs, like animal print, geometric shapes, or funky illustrations, that align with your teen’s interests or hobbies. A set of stylish socks will keep their feet warm and comfortable and allow them to express their personality subtly.

Eco-Friendly Bath Products

Eco-friendly bath products are a thoughtful addition to any teen’s Easter basket, as they emphasize the importance of sustainability. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Biodegradable loofah
  • Bamboo toothbrush
  • Organic cotton towels
  • Shampoo and conditioner bars


While many teens have grown out of Easter egg hunts, they still love candy. Here are a few ideas to consider when filling their Easter baskets with sweets:

  1. Unique gummy shapes: Teens tend to enjoy fun-shaped gummy candies, such as gummy bears or gummy worms. Look for specialty ones in exciting shapes, like seasonal novelties or their favorite characters.
  2. Hard-to-find sweets: Delight them with candies that are difficult to find in local stores, such as international candy, or unique flavor combinations, like hot and spicy chocolate bars.
  3. Artisanal chocolates: Step up the quality of the chocolate you offer by opting for handcrafted chocolates or truffles from a local chocolatier. High-end chocolates convey that your teen is sophisticated and deserving of finer things in life.

Cash or Gift Cards

And finally, no teen will turn down cold, hard cash or a gift card for their favorite store. Pick a gift card to a retailer that will make them feel sophisticated, like a specialty coffee shop. They will enjoy ordering their favorite Starbucks Latte the next time they are out with friends.

Too Old For Easter Baskets?

While teens might pretend to be above all the Easter bunny hype, they still enjoy presents. Zuzana from No-Carb Low-Carb says, “My daughter is a teen and no longer enjoys egg hunting, but she still loves getting goodies on Easter.” 

So surprise your teen this year with these Easter Basket ideas for teens. By selecting personalized, unique, or exciting items for your teen, you can create an Easter basket that will impress even the “too-cool” teen in your life.
