Teens have a reputation for being too cool for things like an Easter celebration. And yeah, you might not be able to get a teenager to take part in an Easter egg hunt, and they probably don't want to decorate Easter eggs anymore. But we've found their over-it reputations to be overstated, especially when it comes to gifts. Sure, you have to think harder to find the right teen Easter basket ideas, but the payoff is worth it.

So, what makes a good Easter gift for teenagers? First off, no teen has ever turned down their favorite candy — or twists on their favorite candy. The self-care trend has made its way down to the teen set, too, so anything that'll keep them cozy and feeling fresh is definitely welcomed. And while they may not play with toys anymore, they're still enticed by knickknacks like fidget toys and things that keep their hands busy. Anything that will make their space look good on a TikTok is also trending right now, but since you don't want them to be holed up in their rooms all the time, we made sure our teen Easter basket ideas also include some family board games and outdoor toys, too. And then there are those little basket stuffers that are fun to add just because. Throw a few together and your teens will be especially happy that the Easter bunny still comes to visit.
