Easter Basket Ideas for Teen Boys

We're in the teen zone, friends. And after the all-too-cutesy display our bunny gifted last year (ahem), we've decided to think outside the basket for some Easter Basket Ideas for Teen Boys this year. My teenager still enjoys receiving a special treat Easter morning...I figured, why not make it more him? Check out these fun and different Easter Basket Ideas for Teen Boys below.

Easter Basket for Boys
Seriously...way outside the basket! I can't wait to see the look on Ben's face when he sees this ball cap stuffed with a few of his favorite things on Easter morning. Finding good Easter Basket Ideas for Teenage Boys is a bit of a challenge...but definitely fun! And our bunny will hopefully get a few cool points this year.



Our basket for our teenager is actually a ball cap that he can wear long after it's emptied of its fun. Since we have a novelty-sock loving guy, we grabbed some retro gamer socks, too. Along with an emoji Bluetooth speaker, new ear buds, a portable charger, a few surprises, and of course, the thing we all love on Easter morning...the Mars Chocolate Spring Mixed Minis Bag from Sam's Club. Shop directly from the above photo for yours by hovering your mouse over the image.

I've also included a free printable Easter gift tag for you to use, as well. It's a bit more teenage-looking than my usual cutesy designs. This tag is available towards the end of this post. 

Easter Eggs
And what is Easter without a few eggs to fill? I found some oversized plastic eggs that are perfect for all of the goodies in this non-traditional Easter basket. They're the perfect size to stuff a couple of Spring Mixed Minis into. We also stuffed one with ear buds, another with erasers (they're of the bunny variety...but not overly cutesy), and even the fun socks (the lid won't fit on the sock ones, but they're still cute spilling out of the eggs).

Easter Basket Fillers

Easter Basket Ideas for Teen Boys

  • small, inexpensive phone accessories (i.e.: ear buds, screen protectors, app shop gift cards, phone finger grips, etc.)
  • portable device chargers
  • mini Bluetooth speaker
  • fun socks
  • erasers, pencils, pens (my teen boy can never have enough of these!)
  • ball cap (use as the actual basket)
  • Mars Chocolate Spring Mixed Minis Bag candies
Easter Basket Assembly
I like to start by stuffing the ball cap full of Easter grass. In this case, I ended up using shreds, since they're a bit sturdier in such a floppy receptacle. Then pile everything inside!

Chocolate Easter Candy
We love the variety of the Spring Mixed Minis bag...there is something for everyone. They're the perfect size for a plastic Easter egg. Mars and Wrigley are here to help make the Easter hunt easier by bringing simple baking, decorating and basket building solutions for everyone. They're helping make Easter stress free and affordable with the help of Sam’s Club. The hunt is on!

  1. Great idea! When ours was young we had SO much fun trying to find something every year that wasn't the usual Easter basket. We were always camping on Easter so this just added to the fun regarding the hunt. It does seem like it's easier to fill something for girls, we didn't have a boy, so I'm NOT speaking from experience. Now that I have lots of "Littles" in my life, these tips will come in VERY handy! Thank You
