Lego Flower Bouquetvia merchant

Your kids may be too old to believe in the Easter bunny, but your teens are never too old for an Easter basket.

As a mom of two teenage boys, I find it much more fun to shop for a variety of small, affordable gifts rather than a few big-ticket items. I also like to cater to their interests.

Not sure where to start? There are plenty of things that are universally loved by every teen. Affordable accessories, like special lenses that turn smartphones into professional-quality cameras or earbuds that let them take their music on the go, are always welcome Easter gifts for teens.

And even though the eggs get all the attention, Easter is one of the biggest candy holidays of the year. Any Easter gift for teens should be paired with plenty of sweet stuff! You can be extra sentimental and make homemade candy to give as gifts, which could end up starting a new family tradition. But teens will be disappointed if they’re basket doesn’t have at least some store-bought goodiesand we found fun twists on old favorites.

You also can’t go wrong with Easter gifts for teens that help them decorate their room, which is undoubtedly one of their favorite places to hang out. Teens crave a space of their very own and relish the opportunity to turn their bedrooms into a reflection of who they’re growing up to be.

No matter what your teen is into, we found plenty of delightful ideas to stuff in their basket—all at a variety of price points. Easter falls on Sunday, March 31 this year, so what are you waiting for? Hop to it!
