25 Teen Gifts Perfect for Filling Easter Baskets, Birthday Presents and Celebrating the Start of Summer

Bunny kisses, Easter basket treats, a yummy brunch and an egg hunt are the traditions I look forward to most each Easter. Every year I give the bunny a hand filling our family’s baskets with goodies. Typically, Easter baskets come stuffed with candy and trinkets, but to be honest my kiddos are still working their way through their Halloween stash and just don’t need any more sweet treats or do-dads. My favorite Easter basket fillers are items that teens will need for the summer months ahead. I don’t mind spending a little more to fill a basket with items that would have been on our summer shopping list and will be put to good use in the months ahead. Teens will be happy to receive some of summer’s coolest necessities.
