Our boys may be growing up WAY too fast, but behind that deep voice of theirs, size 11 shoes, and “I’m too cool for traditions” attitude, lies a boy who STILL really loves getting an Easter basket! So, don’t let your boy fool you. Keep the tradition going strong!

As for me, as much as I want to make Easter special for my son, I also want to avoid breaking the bank (after all, it feels like we’re just coming off Christmas!) That’s why I try to put one or two fun things in his basket that might cost a bit more and fill the rest with inexpensive things I know he’ll still love!

We came up with a bunch of fun ideas, but here are a few extra fillers to consider!

  • Candy or a chocolate Easter bunny 
  • Gift card to his favorite store or restaurant
  • Lottery tickets
  • Movie tickets
  • Sporting event tickets
  • FOOD (always food)
  • Canned drink or Gatorade
  • Stuffed bunny/animal
  • Decorated eggs
  • Money tucked in Easter eggs
  • Underwear/silly briefs
  • Socks
  • Fidget Toy
  • Puzzle
  • Portable charger
  • Cell phone case
  • Deck of cards
  • Magazine(s)
  • Hygiene products
  • Brush/Comb
  • Chapstick
  • Book(s) (Self-help, humor, cookbook, any topic of interest, etc.)
  • Car air freshener/car supplies or accessories
  • Cologne/Body spray
  • Pencils/Pens/Erasers
  • Flashlight

If you’re looking for more fun, adorable, and not-so-expensive Easter basket ideas for your teen boy, we rounded up a bunch of ideas we hope he’ll love! Some cost as little as $3, some $5, some $10, and some a little more, but they’re all hand-picked with teen boys in mind! (Heads up… some of these might be cool gifts for teen girls, too!)

Check out these fun and not-so-expensive Easter basket ideas for teen boys!
