Tween & Teen Girl Easter Basket Filler Ideas Under $10

We are getting down to the nitty gritty on days left before Easter. If you are a parent who tends to procrastinate (like me) on the gift buying, then looking at the calendar probably makes you grit your teeth and roll your eyes. I admit, with how early Easter is this year, other than candy, I haven't bought a single thing for my girl's baskets yet. However, I had my girls (ages 12 and 16) give me some suggestions on inexpensive gifts they would like to find in their basket this year, so if you have a teen or tween girl to buy for, and are stumped, here are the top picks from my girls to help you out:



My girls love music or like to tune out household noise when they are using their tablets, so #1 on their list is Fun Colored Earbuds.

Thanks to all those beauty tutorials going around on Facebook, Donut Bun Rings are super popular with the teens and tweens lately. You can use a sock for a free bun maker, but my girls like rings like these because they can insert bobby pins into them easily for better hold. Just be sure to match the ring to your daughter's hair color so it blends in with the hair better.


My girls like art, but they are too old for those babyish coloring books. They each got an Adult Coloring Book for Christmas, and have been having a blast filling in the pages ever since.


Sunnies were big on both of their lists. With summer right around the corner, they are already plotting their outdoor adventures.
 Keeping with the summer vibe, new Flip Flop Sandals would be most welcomed.


For those girls who like sports and fitness, an Insulated Water Bottle is a great idea!


My girls like to keep Facial Cleansing Towelettes in their backpacks and fitness bags. My youngest also prefers them over a washcloth and soap for her skin care regimen.

In a look at me world, my kids are no exception. A Selfie Stick is a must for all those Instagram worthy selfies. 

Again, thanks to Facebook and Pinterest, most of the girls want to play around with fun artistic nail designs. Nail stencils, stampers, rhinestones, and Dotting Nail Pens are trending pretty big right now.


A Cute Cosmetic Case to tuck into their backpack was another great suggestion.

Of course, you can never go wrong with standard beauty products. Nail polish, scented body washes and lotions, lip balm, and razors. Also, cell phone cases, gel pens, jewelry, card games, journals, books, gift cards and movie tickets are all great ideas as well.

What's going in your tween or teen's Easter basket this year?

    1. Bathing suits go on sale starting in February here. If you don't buy ahead of the game, by the time summer rolls around, there isn't much left. The girls use flip flops year round for the community pool and for school showers and such, so it's always good to keep a few pairs on hand :)

      I am also obsessed with those coloring books. It takes forever to complete a page, but it's a fun process!

    2. I just read an article yesterday that due to the book colouring craze there's an extreme shortage of colouring pencils around the world, because the leading producers cannot cope with the current demand. Imagine that....

    3. I guess they are loving the boom in the trend too! I personally prefer to use gel pens on the pages, but you have to make sure you either buy the books with the thicker pages or get the pens that won't bleed through the thinner ones.

  3. Those are awesome ideas. I actually ended up hitting up the Under Armor outlet for my 11 year old and grabbed some clearance t-shirts to put in his basket this year.
