Easter Basket Ideas for Teens
By Patricia Chadwick
-- Do you think your teenagers are too old to receive
Easter baskets? Well, mine aren’t! In case you, too, have
those young-at-heart teens, here are some Easter basket ideas that
teens will love.
Let’s face it, when it comes to clothes,
your teen will never have enough! What a perfect time to give
your teenager some spring clothing. There are still sales going
on before the new summer line is being promoted, so you can find
some great deals on spring clothes. K-mart, Wal-Mart, and many
others, including mall stores, are not only having clearance sales,
but sales on spring items.
Books can be timeless gifts. This time of year,
many new books are hitting the market. Why not encourage reading
in your teen by giving him or her some great, interesting
Fill that Easter basket with much needed soaps,
shampoos, hair gels and other hair products, deodorants,
and acne creams. You might even want to throw in some suntan lotion
or sunscreen to help them look forward to the summer!
About this time of year, school supplies have
either run out, been lost, or are worn out. Fill that Easter basket
with new pens, pencils, folders, notebooks, and notebook paper.
Let’s face it, every kid likes to get an
Easter basket, and teenagers are no exception.
For those who want to be a little more
extravagant, try adding these gifts.
What teen (human!) doesn’t like candy?
It’s something you just never seem to outgrow. I’m
not a big fan of chocolate, but I feel special occasions deserve
good chocolate! The week before Easter you will find great sales
on candy EVERYWHERE. Also, if you like to make your own, you will
find candy-making supplies at specialty stores and most local
grocery stores. For those who don’t like chocolate or are
allergic, try making carob candy – check out your local
health food store for supplies and details.
This is a great time to give the gift of entertainment
to your teenager.
Why not buy a book of movie passes to distribute
in various Easter baskets. You can usually purchase the tickets
cheaper this way and your teen will love a free movie. If the
price of a movie ticket in your area is a little high, why not
buy a gift card at the local video shop?
Teens also love their music, so another great
gift is a CD of their favorite artist.
Why not fill that basket with practical items
that are not only needed, but are sure to please!
