No matter how old my kids get, I’ll always make them an Easter Basket. They may not admit it, but I know they love it. In fact, their faces show that they still look forward to their Easter baskets and would probably be highly disappointed if I ever skipped a year. Coming up with Easter basket ideas for teens can be tricky, but it’s so much fun.
One of my favorite childhood memories is my Easter baskets. Even as an adult, my mom gave me Easter treats. That’s a memory that I will forever have etched in my heart. I want to pass those same memories to my children, which is a big reason why Easter baskets are still one of my favorite things.

For College Students
My oldest is in college. So, I set out to find things that he would find useful. Here are some of my finds:
No More Excuses 90-Day Devotional for Men
60-Count Easter Care Package
This 60-Count Easter Care Package is great for college students. It comes neatly packed and is perfect for those late-night study sessions or for sharing with friends while they’re hanging out.
Have Fun Keychain
Your college kid will think of you every time he pulls out his keys with this cute reminder keychain attached.
We all know that college students live their best lives in athleisure nearly 90% of the time. Almost every time I Facetime with my son, he’s usually in sweats and a t-shirt. Since the weather is warming up, I’m sure the outfit will transition from sweats to shorts. I bet these will come in handy.
I know that if socks run away at home, they’re doing the same thing at college. I pretty much toss socks in the package every holiday, just to play it safe.
My daughter is 18 and is headed to college soon. But, she’s never too old to enjoy some of her favorite Easter treats.
I love Sarah Young Devotionals. I knew this would be the perfect gift for my daughter when I ran across this one.
She always has her eye on my facial steamer, so I knew that I couldn’t go wrong by getting her one of her own. This will be great for her to take with her to college, too!
A girl can never, and I mean NEVER, have enough makeup brushes. These are great brushes for the price.
Okay, if we’re being honest here, I’ve been wanting to try these out. So, I figured that if I bought this nail wrap set for her, I could try a set! (Shhhhh. Don’t tell her. )
Headbands have made their way back into our worlds lately and I’m here for it! I love throwing on a headband to add a touch of fun to a hairdo.
More ideas for Easter Baskets
Here are some other items on my list that I love to keep around when I’m making Easter baskets for my kids:
I usually just toss the items into a gift bag and top with tissue paper. It makes it cute and easy. Here are some of my favorites. I keep these on hand for whenever I need to wrap a gift quickly.
And, of course, teens love a gift card or two so I always drop some in their bags as well! I have so much fun putting these treats together for them.
