Easter gifts for teens can be down right nerve-wracking to figure out, especially if you don’t want to give the usual gift card. I went to the experts, two teen girls, and asked what their ideal basket would look like. They both unanimously agreed no candy. However, they did give me some great ideas and I wanted to share them with you.

Easter Gifts For Teens
Are you stuck trying to figure out what the heck to put in your teens Easter basket? I know your pain! My 18-year-old always asks for gift cards, but truth be told I hate giving them. She gave me a few ideas this year, and I will definitely be heading out to get a few things.
John’s Crazy Socks
My teen wears crazy socks every single day, I don’t get it but I don’t fight it. That’s her prerogative. She loves to order from John’s Crazy Socks, because they have a HUGE variety and it gives back to a worthwhile cause when you make a purchase. Personally, I love that John is so involved in his business (run by his Dad) that he sends a hand written note with every single purchase.
My daughter is a summer camp counselor and they cannot have their phones on them when they have the kids. Thus her need (yes, she did ask) for a new watch this year. Armitron is my favorite watch brand, and they just launched a new line of watches that will be perfect for camp.
The Armitron Chronograph Sport Watch features an alarm, second time zone, and backlight, and is water-resistant up to 330 feet. I love this watch, and have one in silver. It is really durable and will last the wear and tear of a teen.
New this season, the Armitron Digital Chronograph Round Dial Watch features lap time, an alarm, 12/24 hour time and a back-light with three-second fade. This is also water-resistant up to 165 feet. I think this is the one she will be getting for camp. It is definitely more rugged and durable.
Amazon Fire Stick
We cut the cord on cable and my daughter streams on her i-pad. She asked for an Amazon Fire Stick so she can hook everything through her television, now that we are cable free.
I think teens are permanently attached to their phones, naturally phone accessories would be part of their gift list. I asked the girls for a few “must-have” items. Here is what they insisted on needing.
- PopSocket I guess holding the phone is too difficult?
- External Battery, heaven forbid they don’t have a full charge
- Selfie Light, this is self-explanatory
I hope this gave you a few ideas as to what to put in your teens Easter basket. I will probably still sneak a gift card in there, she does love her Starbucks.
