Just because your teen is getting older, that doesn’t mean they’re too old for an Easter basket! No matter how old you are, a lovingly crafted Easter basket is always a nice surprise.
Teens are a bit pickier than kids and toddlers, so make sure to pack their Easter basket full of goodies more suited to older tastes - tech & fashion accessories, swag for their cars, and so much more! Gifts from Vera Bradley or Lilly Pulitzer are items they’ll use again and again - either around campus or during their daily drives (if they’re old enough for that sort of thing). Younger teens will get lots of mileage out of tech accessories and other small items like wristlets and keychains. Finally...don’t forget the Easter candy - because everyone loves candy!
Of course, when it comes to building the perfect Easter basket - no matter your child’s age - you’ve got to start, well...at the basket itself! “Easter Basket” is, of course, a general term, and you can build your own arrangement inside a basket, a pail, a tote bag...whatever works for you! Add in some paper shreds for the “grass” and a splash of color, and you’re ready to fill your container of choice with candies, toys, books...and so much more that your kids will love. Easter baskets can also be used after the holidays as storage around kids’ rooms, so it helps to think ahead and pick something you or your kids will use again and again!
