Help! I need ideas for making an Easter Basket for a 14 yr old girl


Hi Ladies, Just when I thought I had all my shopping done for the baskets Im making up, dh, GD's dd etc. I find out dd is having her SIL for that week shes only 14 and I dont want her to feel left out, but I have no idea what to put in her basket.
Any of you that have 14 yr old girls have any ideas, I dont want to spend a fortune either.
Thanks
Hugs Sandie

We always got fun stuff in our Easter baskets along with chocolates.

Some ideas:

chocolates

lip gloss

funky socks

stationary and pencils or pens

funky keychains

A diary


Dollar Tree and places like that are great for things like this!!

scrapebook goodies such as stickers, scissors, papers, etc

photo books

jewrly

agree with Tami about the Diary

comb/brush/ mirror set

nail and toe polish/ remover

bath stuff

perfume

if you knew if she like crafts or not, you could pick up craft stuff to make a craft basket

I could pick a theme and go with that theme,

Thanks Tami and Bar bar, I actually went to Micheals over the weekend they were having a sale and I made up a basket for scrapbooking, for her to start one even included a disposable camera so she can take pictures Easter if she wants. Its been 16 years since dd was that age and Im not up to date on teenagers right now.Once I got started I had no problem finding things.

as you can tell our minds were working alike as my first thing I wrote was scrapebooking. LOL and my last statement was to go with a theme.... LOL....

so we were on the same track... if you get to take a pictrure don't forget to post it... and if she into scrapebooking she will be thrilled, and if not if gives her something to get into and get hook on it...

you did good....

My Big Kids are getting CD holders in their baskets. I got them on a clearance shelf in Target. I'm tired of finding their music CDs all over!
I also got DD/9 some hair things (ponytail holders & such).

Other cool things that older kids might like to see in their baskets:
batteries for their walkman
cool pens/pencils
wallet
small notebook/address book
cool key chain
fast food gift certificates

Girls would like:
a case to carry their makeup in their backpack or purse
mirror for their locker
nail care stuff like bright colored emery boards, etc

Easter basket for 14 yr old

I have always made my daughter's baskets because I didn't like there to be too much candy and it allowed me to be creative. This year I bought a lot of things at Target -- in their Easter aisle and from their $1 bin (which I love!). I bought things like easter socks, a bubble necklace (my daughter is now 18 and loved it all!), a bunny and chick water squeeze toy . . . you get the idea. Walmart had a lot of fun Easter stuff also. They also carry mini-bottles of nail polish that are less than $1.

I would take the plastic eggs and fill those with various types of candy to limit the amount. My daughter told me she loves the baskets I made for her and will carry on the tradition when she has kids. When she was younger I would put in things like Bunny ears, curly straws, bunny slippers, etc.

easter basket

Dollar Tree is a life saver for inexpensive goodies. Jewelry, makeup, hair stuff, nail polish, lip gloss, bath stuff (scrubbies and shower gel), lotion, nail clippers and files, small mirror, small purses or wallets, purfume or gel pens or markers, address book, sunscreen, sunglasses, depending on how much you want to spend, fast food gift certificates (you can ususally get them in books of 5 $1 certificates), small samplers of Whitman's candy or other "grown up candies" (instead of the kiddie chocolate bunnies, etc), toe socks, a small stuffed animal, mini radio, small makeup case/bag (gotta have something to hide that "personal" stuff in your purse or pocket, heart shaped or other fun/colored notepads, mini pens/pencils, knick knacks, the list is endless.
