It can be hard putting together cool Easter baskets for teens and tweens. While our youngest kids may be content with a stuffed rabbit and a basket full of candy-filled plastic eggs, I’m excited to treat my three kids with some cool Easter gifts for teens that they’ll actually be psyched to see in their Easter basket. 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 Easter gifts for teenagers who are still kids at heart.

Or at least in our minds.

But hurry! Easter is early in 2024 — March 31! Be sure to check shipping times before placing your order. – Christina, with Liz
