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
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.
