We have hit a new stage in life – we have a teen. As I was shopping for Easter I quickly realized that Easter basket ideas for tweens and teens are vastly different than those for little kids. They also happen to be a challenge to find if you want them to have something not related to gaming or a phone, which we do. For us, Easter baskets warrant a different approach than other holidays. We typically find one larger thing like a movie or toy that they really want, but it must be under $25. We surround it with small and inexpensive items that hopefully still mean a lot.
Easter basket ideas for tweens and teens do not have to break the bank, all you need are a few of their favorite treats.
In realizing I now have a teen, I had to come to terms with the fact that many things are about to change. One of the biggest changes that I’m dealing with comes into light at the store.
I can no longer buy toys because “that’s for kids, mom.” I now have to shop for more adult things to help with the transformation into adulthood.
One of the first experiences with this that I’ve had so far is with Easter basket ideas for tweens.
The Right Idea
Finding the right Easter basket ideas can be challenging. The basket can take on many different ideas. For example, you could put stuff in the basket for outdoor activities. You could also keep it simple and just fill it with a mix of healthy and not-so-healthy snacks.

No matter what you decide to put in the basket it will surely be great. In fact, you could use a pre-built basket and surely your teens and tweens will appreciate it. But we are looking to let out some of our creativity. That is why we build our own baskets, from scratch. Don’t forget socks, there is never a bad time for the gift of socks.

The important thing is that you take your teen’s personality into account. Building the best Easter basket for teens and tweens means knowing your teens and tweens. Are they into sports? Movies? Beauty? Games? Have fun with the challenge and don’t let a little unknown scare you.
