Times have definitely changed since my kids were little. Filling Easter baskets used to be pretty easy, and now I have to think a little more about what I am going to put in the kid’s baskets. I try to find things that aren’t just candy or wasteful items, and look for useful gifts.
Here are a few of our favorite tween Easter basket gift ideas.

Bath Bombs & Beauty Supplies
My kids seem to go in phases with wanting bath bombs, but these can be a nice treat. There are endless ideas for beauty items, from hair products to skincare to bath products. Some ideas include a nice curling iron, scented body wash, or a makeup mirror with lights.
Art / craft supplies
If your child is into doing a certain type of art or craft, you could get some supplies to help them with their projects. For example, my daughter loves Copic markers, so we got her some for her art supply collection. There are lots of great options, from flat clay beads to sewing, learning to knit, and so on.
We like giving fun socks once in a while as gifts, so when I see a cool pair, like sushi socks, I grab them for our Easter baskets.
Both of my kids love books, and it is nice to pick out something special for their easter baskets. There are lots of teen books to choose from, and you can easily find good options on the teen bestselling book list, including this popular BookTok set.
Outdoor Games or Sports Items
Since Easter is usually around the start of better weather, some outdoor items are a good bet. Kids who do sports can usually use something new, from athletic clothing to a new ball. Outdoor games can be fun, even if your tween seems reluctant. Perhaps some water balloons or a slackline.
There are so many nice room accessories out there, from string lights to light boxes to wall tapestries. Tweens can spend a lot of time in their room, so some room updates are a nice idea.
With summer on the way, you can’t really go wrong with some apparel. If your tween has a favorite show, this is a good chance to find show merchandise.
Gift cards are a great option, from Starbucks to favorite foods or some money towards Apple purchases for games or music.
While my kids like candy, there are foods they really like too, whether it is something like Pocky or even a salty treat like flavored popcorn or a funky flavor of chips.
I limit how much candy I give, but a chocolate bunny, some peeps, and some gum are usually the perfect gift!
I would have loved any of these baskets as a teen. Heck, I think it’d like it now…and I’m definitely not in that age range. Thanks for the wonderful ideas. My niece is going to love them.
These are really beautiful ideas. And honestly, I’d love to receive them myself, especially that wall tapestry – how stunning is that!! I actually had a very similar one in blue back in the day lol
I love these Easter basket ideas for tween girls! The personalized water bottle and the DIY friendship bracelet kit are such fun and creative additions to the basket.
These baskets omg!!! I would love to have it, amazing idea! Thank you so much for sharing, love it!
These are great ideas! I have a tween daughter and I know she would love things like books and bath bombs. Of course a little chocolate egg too!
What cute ideas for Easter. Tweens can be a difficult age to gift, so I think these baskets will be well appreciated as gifts.
I have a tween so this was really helpful. I think she’d love art supplies, candy, and some room accessories most.
Teens and tweens have definitely developed their own personalities and interests. These are some really great ideas for them. Although each basket will be a little different.
My mum used to do little easter baskets when we were younger to have some little treats and it was always fun. Especially when you don’t want to buy loads of chocolate x
Love this twist on Easter basket goodies. Love the bright colours and a good book always makes a perfect gift!
My sister made them with small craft kits…did not want just candy. ill love it!
Ok, I’d love these things, too. I’m all about a good bath bomb. So fun! I need to make Easter baskets this year. Thanks for the reminder!
These are great ideas for tween-girl Easter baskets. I think beauty products and books are fabulous ideas!
Nnniiiccceeee….the tween in me today would have wished to get art and craft supplies! Thanks for sharing this list.
Wow, these Easter basket ideas are egg-citing! As a parent of a tween girl, it can be tough to find the perfect balance of cute and cool. These suggestions are definitely hopping in the right direction and I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face light up on Easter morning!
I am so glad I came across this! I have a tween and it is a hard age to know what to get her. Now, I have some great ideas…Thank you! 🙂
Books are always great gift ideas for any occasion. My teens are very keen on reading.
These are very fun ideas. What I especially like is that many can be adapted to other uses
As a child I would get chocolate Easter eggs as presents every year. But at this point in life I think I prefer books. Happy Easter!
Great ideas! My daughter would love several of the products on this list.
I feel like tween girls are probably tough to shop for! WHat a great list!
Tweens are so hard to buy for. I have been trying to think of creative things for my tween’s easter basket. The book idea is perfect…she loves reading.
