Easter Basket for Coffee-Loving Teens

You may think that your kids have outgrown Easter baskets by the time they're teens, but Easter is a fun time to show your teen how much you care about them and that you're thinking of them.

This year, instead of the traditional Easter candy I usually buy, I decided to do something special for my coffee-loving teens.


Small Easter basket
Easter grass
Plastic Easter eggs
Chocolate-covered coffee beans
$10 Starbucks gift card
A Starbuck's bottled frappucino
Snack-size donuts and/or cookies

Fill the plastic Easter eggs with coffee beans, then arrange everything in the Easter basket with the Easter grass.

Don't forget about the teens far from home! These baskets can be mailed to step-children or teens off at college. Everyone loves to get a thoughtful surprise in the mail now and then.
