Here are some ideas to put in a teen boy’s Easter basket that will help you create the perfect teen boy Easter basket.
- Choose a theme for the basket – Choose a theme based on his interest. For example, if he is into sports, you can make him a sports theme basket. We have included some popular theme ideas below.
- Substitute the traditional basket – Instead of a basket, consider using something they can use after. I included some ideas to go with each theme below.
- Include their favorite snacks/treats/drinks – What teen does not like to snack and sip on their favorite drink? If you know their favorite snacks, treats, and drinks, definitely add them to the basket.
- Include gift card/s – You can include a gift card to their favorite store/s or something related to the theme you chose to do.
- Include only items you know they’ll use. – Do not add random trinkets that will end up in the trash. I used to do this to make the basket seem fuller, but it would end up in the trash by the next day. So now I try to be more intentional with the items I include in their baskets.

Tip: A great alternative to a basket is a shoe box. Not only will a shoe box cost you no extra money, but it also goes perfectly with the theme.

Another popular Easter basket theme for teen boys is a “gamer theme.” So if you are looking for Easter basket gifts for teenage boys who are gamers, here are some ideas he might like.
Idea: A functional alternative to the traditional Easter basket for this one can be a new trash bin. If you know anything about gamers, you know they like to snack while playing, so the need for a good size trash bin is a must. And even if he already has a trash bin, a new one would be great to separate his recycling.
- Personalized headphone stand – The game you’re shopping for may already have a headset stand, but does he have a personalized headset stand?
- Carry case compatible with Nintendo Switch – This Nintendo switch carry case is perfect to organize and carry his Nintendo Switch and accessories when on the go.

- Computer elbow wrist pad – Gamers spend hours playing, so these computer elbow wrist pads are a must-have and something he probably doesn’t have yet.
- Finger chopsticks for gamers – Gaming and snacking go hand in hand. Help your games keep his hands clean while he snacks with these finger chopsticks.
Self Care Theme
If the teen boy you’re shopping for is big on skincare and self-care, a self-care theme basket would be perfect for him. You can get a few of his favorite self-care products if you know them. If not, below are some ideas he might enjoy.
Idea: For this theme, a basket would still be a good idea since they can use it to store all their items, but instead of an Easter basket, you can use a regular decorative basket they can reuse to keep their items organized.
- Cologne – If you don’t know what cologne he likes, this set is perfect to help him try different ones so he can find his favorite,

- Charcoal toothbrushes – Perfect paired with the whitening toothpaste.
- Nail kit – This is something we all need but probably don’t buy for ourselves. Especially if you’re a teen boy. But it is definitely something that is very much needed. My son has this exact one and the case it comes in is perfect to keep it stored in and not lose them.
- Razors – If the teen boy you shopping for is already shaving, he will appreciate a new set of razors.
