While our youngest kids may be content with a stuffed rabbit and a basket full of candy-filled plastic eggs, I’m excited to spoil my three kids with some cool Easter gifts for teens that up the ante with things they’ll actually be psyched to see in their Easter basket. And, with price points from just a few dollars to more splurge-y gifts if that’s in your budget, we think you’ll get lots of ideas for your teens who are still kids at heart.
But hurry! Easter hops onto the scene on Sunday, April 9th; check shipping times before placing your order.

Bath & beauty Easter gifts for teens
Walk the aisles or scroll through the pages of your local Target, Ulta, or smaller specialty shop or neighborhood drugstore, and you’ll find loads of affordable health and beauty items for teens like quick-drying nail polish, natural skin care, hair accessories, makeup items, sunscreen…all the stuff they love.
Here, I’m calling out a few other extra-cool bath-and-body Easter gifts for teens to stuff into their Easter baskets.
Easter Bunny shower steamers ($13.45 from RelaxAway Essentials on Etsy)
Busy teens may not have time to soak in the tub, but they can get an invigorating aromatherapy session in the shower with one of these bunny-shaped shower steamers. Scented with eucalyptus and peppermint, this should wake them up before school.
Egg-shaped makeup sponges ($20 at Beauty Bakerie Store on Amazon)
The packaging of this set of six makeup sponges makes it so perfect for a teen’s Easter basket. And if your teen isn’t so much a “pink/blue” fan, these egg-shaped sponges are also available in neutral shades or solid black.
Floral ear cuff ($15-$20 at Peggy Li)
For an affordable little bauble to freshen up your teen’s accessories for spring, these ear cuffs are so wonderful for $20 or less! From one of CMP’s favorite indie jewelry designers — check out our article on her necklace collection to support the AAPI community — it’s a gift that might even have your teen thinking you’re cool. Maybe. Be sure to poke around the site, there’s a lot to love there.
Starter shaving set ($15 at Harry’s)
Whether you’ve got a kiddo with peach fuzz or a five o’clock shadow, this shaving set from Harry’s will get a teen’s face as smooth as an (Easter) egg. I know my teen son would love this affordable set which includes a bright-handled razor in springlike orange, green, or blue, a travel cover for taking on vacation, and thick, foaming shave gel with aloe to sooth their baby faces. Or, still baby to me.

TONYMOLY bunny perfume stick ($12+ at Amazon)
This little bunny perfume stick is small enough to stick in their backpack for times when they just want to freshen up with non-babyish scents like bergamot, musk, and amber. Sold singularly or grab a set of three for $36.
Easter gifts for teens to do when the screens are down
Even if your teens seem pretty content scrolling on their phones, they may appreciate a good reason to put their screen down. So, along with new art projects to keep them drawing/painting/crafting and games to play with their friends, I’ve found a few new Easter gifts for teens that can help keep their hands (and minds) busy.
Bunny felting kit ($20 at FeltedSky on Etsy)
These crafty creations rom Felted Sky will keep your teens busy for a while, but as a beginner-level project, it’s worth the effort. Plus the stab-stab-stab action of making all those felted pieces is good for releasing that typical teen frustration. Also available as chicks and Easter eggs.
Speks magnetic balls ($34.95 at Speks)
For teens older than 14 who won’t put these in their mouth (important!), Speks are great little desk accessories that they can squish and fidget with as they tackle their chemistry homework.
Pollinator Garden poppers ($19 at Uncommon Goods)
After the egg hunt, send them outside to pollinate the yard with seeds that will attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the yard this spring and summer. Such a fun and unique item to see sticking out of an Easter basket for your nature-loving teen.
Scented aromatherapy dough ($15 at Uncommon Goods)
Is it a play dough or an aromatherapy product? It’s actually both. Handmade in Portland, Maine by CMP favorite Eco-Kids, Therapy Dough contains yummy essential oils that help calm the mind while also keeping our older kids’ hands busy during finals or while watching Netflix.
Tech-y Easter gifts for teens
Does your child’s tech need a refresh but you’re short on time to shop? Gift cards for Playstation, XBox, or Apple are big hits for many teens and super easy to find at any local drugstore — or grab digital ones online.
“Here Comes the Sun” iPhone case (from $25 at Casely)
Love this tiny reminder of hope for sunnier days ahead with this Casely phone case, also available for Google and Samsung phones, as well as for their AirPods.
Splash-proof Bluetooth speaker ($59.90 on Amazon)
Great timing for summer pool parties, this little Bluetooth speaker doesn’t mind getting splashed as it blasts their favorite tunes. Great little gift for a teen’s Easter basket that also comes in a dozen colors to best fit their unique style.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones ($29.99 on sale with extra 20% off coupon on Amazon)
Great price and reviews for these pastel-hued waterproof sports earbuds from occiam. Comes in pink, blue, and green–and, of course, black–in case you want to grab one for each of the kids.
A big splurge (prices vary)
If you’re looking for a big WOW gift, a new pair of AirPods, a Nintendo Switch (with some Nintendo Switch accessories), or an Apple Watch SE are all small enough to fit into an Easter basket, but big enough to make this Easter stand out in their memory — in a good way. Of course, we know you’ll make it fun no matter what.
Edible Easter gifts for teens
Whether you are filling Easter baskets or sending a care package to college, make sure you include treats in your Easter gifts for teens!
Even the big-box stores have great chocolate and sour gummies on their shelves, and it’s easy to grab or print out gift cards for Starbucks, Chipotle, or a favorite local bubble tea place or pizza joint, for those nights when they don’t like dinner.
Allergen-free candies and chocolates (prices vary; Vermont Nut Free Easter selection shown)
So many of our kids have food allergies that we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Easter candies that are free of major allergens like nuts or dairy or gluten. I also just sent this little bunny bag of treats along with No Whey’s chocolates to my vegan college sophomore who won’t make it home for this holiday. (sniff)
S’mores Easter bonfire gift set ($39.95 at City Bonfires)
Another cute and unique idea for older teens, this Easter-themed s’mores pack will give them something fun to do with friends. Maybe just remind them to take this outside.
Spring candy paint can ($18 at Dylan’s Candy Bar)
Why settle on just a couple of candies when the Easter Bunny can leave your teen a bunch of treats? Love Dylan’s Candy Bar’s entire Easter collection which also includes their easy-to-ship tackle box shown at top of the page. Their candies are always so colorful and delicious; they’ll definitely sweeten their holiday.
Sugarfina’s Easter sweets (from $22)
These pastel-hued sampler packs are just the perfect mix of sweet and sophisticated for our growing-up teens. Packs like the one above include a yummy mix of candies as well as two colorful “confetti” chocolate bars to sugar them up for the day.
Rabbit tumbler ($16.99+ on Amazon)
And though this isn’t exactly an “edible” Easter gift, one of these 12-ounce insulated stainless steel tumblers, along with a Starbucks gift card for their favorite bev, will make your teen’s Easter. Trust us on this one.
