If you give your kids Easter baskets when they were growing up, do you continue when they are teens?

My son is 13, not sure what to do. If you do what gifts do you get?

My DD is almost 14. Yes she gets a basket and will as long as she is my DD. she loves nail polish so got her some. New bath soap and lotion. Very little candy. I always use a pail and shovel as the basket but we live on the beach fer the summer. I always get them swim goggles and sometimes a bathing suit in their baskets. My little guys get a lot of out door chalk, shovels, stuff like that. Ohand an iTunes gift card for $10

When my sons were young teens I filled their baskets with Basketball cards, gift cards for Taco Bell, movie passes, swim trunks, sunglasses, flip flops, DVD, Video games......whatever they were into at the time.

My dd is 18 and still gets a basket. She also gets a Santa gift. Her little brothers would question why she didn't get anything.

I remember getting a basket growing up every year until i moved out and graduated to a chocolate rabbit.  I do it for them, but I make theirs.  This year my 15yo gets a Weird Al CD in it, my 13yo is getting a sketch book, and my 12 yo is getting moops.  They all get candy and a small bunny too

 Sure do, ds-17 gets an itune gift card, and some candy.
DS-14 gets the dvd I Bought a Zoo and some candy.
As long as they are living here they will always get a basket and then when they move out....well they probably will still get one until I have grandchildren then I'll get to spoil them lol.

Great ideas, thank you! The older he gets it seems the more difficult it is to find stuff and I'm the worst at getting things.

DS1 is 14 he got a bike for christmas so he's getting a water bottle and a lock for it in his basket..

They all get a lil candy, this cool glow stick, flashing, whistle for their hiking packs, and push pops.

lol We have a family zune subscription so he doesn't need itunes or anything he has unlimited downloads.

Sometimes I give them GCs to McDonalds or DVDs, or books, depends what they are into.

Are bikes super popular right now? Never have I heard so much talk about them.

 My son is 13 years old. I get him stuff he's into. Normally some Axe stuff, basically anything I'd buy to put in his stocking at Christmas time but only for Easter!

Wow, now I feel cheap or maybe I'm just weird!

I don't go overboard for Easter. My kids (14 and 9) each get a basket with some candy, and a small gift, like lip gloss for my daughter (the 14 year old) or bubble soap, etc, for my son. No money, gift cards, etc. They don't feel deprived.

I just don't think of Easter as a big gift giving holiday. I figure my kids get enough "stuff" as it is.

I can't see going ouy and spending $50-$100+ per kid on gifts for Easter.
