Teens will love this super-slim portable charger to ensure their phone never dies mid-TikTok. (Shoppers rave about its cordless design and long-lasting battery.)

ICYMI, pickleball is *all* the rage right now, and this affordable set has everything they need to take up the sport—including two paddles, four honeycomb balls and a convenient carrying case to hold it all.

Grab a sample pack of this incredibly decadent chocolate that not only tastes amazing, but is made with all natural ingredients, too. Plus, Tony's Chocoloney is a certified B-Corp and Fair Trade certified, so you can feel great knowing it's produced with high ethical standards in mind.

If they're always losing their house keys, it's worth it to splurge on a four-pack of Apple AirTags (and *definitely* a pack of these keychain holders, $10) so they can track them with a touch of their phone.

These scrunchies are more than a cute accessory. Coming in a set of two, they’re designed with a hidden zip-closed pocket that reviewers say is just large enough to store essentials like cash and lip balm.

We love the subtle, delicate design of this zodiac necklace and, according to PureWow Assistant Commerce Editor Natalie LaBarbera, "Flaire & Co.'s quality is unmatched for the price. I have a few pieces, including earrings I've been wearing nonstop for months, and they look just as great as the day I got them."

Teenage years can be stressful to say the least, so why not gift them this mindfulness puzzle set that features an accompanying mantra with each individual puzzle for a relaxing, screen-free activity?

Who doesn’t love chocolate-covered Oreos? This pack from Philadelphia Candies, a company that’s been making chocolate for more than 100 years, comes in a pretty gold box and has extra icing decorations on top celebrating the holiday.

Stanley Quenchers have taken TikTok by storm. They'll love this rich green hue to add to their collection for spring.

While you’re at it, this water bottle holder is the perfect accessory to go with their favorite Stanley or HydroFlask ($45). They can easily go hands-free thanks to the adjustable crossbody strap, plus it has multiple pockets for storing everything from their phone to their keys.

Give the gift of an instant manicure with these easy-to-use press-on nails that come in tons of spring-ready colors, like this pale pink and a stunning coral ($15).

This weighted eye mask is designed to help wearers relax, offering stress relief through its soothing feel according to the brand, and reviewers rave that it helps them fall asleep faster.

Although this is one of the pricier picks on our list, any teen is sure to get tons of use out of this Bluetooth-compatible portable speaker thanks to its surprisingly compact size. Bonus: It’s waterproof, so taking it to the beach or a pool party is no problem.

Between the chic packaging and delicious chocolate pretzel flavor, there’s no better bar to add into your teen’s basket. Not to mention it’s handmade in Los Angeles and is vegan-friendly.

Nobody makes a bath bomb quite like Lush, and this duo doesn’t disappoint. It’ll fill the tub with swirls of bubbles and color, and it comes in two energizing scents, Dragon’s Egg and Avobath, which both feature uplifting citrusy notes.

This mindfulness coloring book will take their minds off everything as they channel their creativity into the intricate illustrations.

Since they’ll need something to use with that coloring book, we suggest these wooden colored pencils. Each one is engraved with positive affirmations to really add to the uplifting experience.

Lip oils are more popular than ever, and this one from Jouer Cosmetics is perfect for teens thanks to its subtle tint. Plus, it’s packed with beneficial ingredients like Vitamin E and jojoba seed oil that will keep their lips hydrated.

Keep things classic with this assortment of chocolate Easter bunnies from beloved chocolate brand, Ghirardelli. The pack comes with four tasty flavors including caramel chocolate, milk chocolate, and both milk and dark sea salt caramel chocolate.

This cult-favorite lululemon belt bag is not only stylish, but it’s also a convenient size that they can use on its own on the weekends or stuff into a larger tote or backpack on school days to keep their essentials easily findable.

These fuzzy slippers will bring a smile to their face every morning, especially since buyers say they feel super comfy, warm and well-constructed.

If your teen’s constantly running to after-school practices or even over friends’ houses on the weekends, they’re sure to love this ultra-lightweight, foldable gym bag that they can use to store everything they need for the day. Plus, it has a shoe compartment that’s perfect for keeping dirty sneakers separate.

Sugarfina makes some of our favorite unique candy flavors, and you can grab them this fun French-inspired bento box that features three boxes of strawberries and cream, cookies and cream and peaches and cream candies.

Their selfies will look next level with this convenient clip-on phone light. They’ll simply attach it right to the top of their phones and choose from the three color modes and five brightness levels to find the perfect lighting.

If, like so many others, your teen experiences anxiety, this fidget ring could be a great add to their basket this year. Fidget rings have been noted to aid in calming through the release of anxious energy and fidgeting, and the gorgeous gemstone-adorned design of this one that has delicate stones of amethyst for positive energy, celestine for inner peace, green quartz for creativity and rose quartz for unconditional love.

So your teen’s a Swiftie? So are we! They’ll absolutely adore this personalized Speak Now-inspired journal that you can add their name to for an extra-special touch.

Get them warm weather-ready with these classic sunnies from Sojos. They’ve racked up more than 10,000 5-star reviews on Amazon for their effectiveness in blocking sunlight and affordable price tag.

These silky satin hair curlers are perfect for styling their hair with bouncy waves without the usual heat damage from a curling iron.

Whether they prefer listening to their latest Spotify playlist, podcasts or audiobooks, they’ll appreciate the high-quality sound from the Apple AirPods Pro. Plus, the transparency setting is ideal for when they’re wearing them outdoors and need to stay aware of their surroundings.

Glow drops are yet another beauty product regularly taking over our TikTok feeds, and these ones from Naked Sundays will not only give their skin a radiant look, but they also offer strong sun protection.

Easter candy doesn’t get much better than the classic Reese’s eggs, and the colorful tie dye wrapping makes them all the more festive.

We know they already love their Ugg boots, but they’ll also adore these soft ribbed socks by the popular brand that come in a variety of pastel hues perfect to match all their spring outfits.

Any teen will love cozying up in this brushed jersey hoodie that’s now nearly *75 percent* off. Plus, you can snag them a pair of matching joggers ($20) on sale for an effortless outfit.

This claw clip is the perfect springtime accessory, and you can feel good knowing that Ink + Alloy is both women-founded and gives back to the nonprofit, Commit2Change, which aids in educating girls around the world.

Personalize this roomy pouch with up to five patches to give them a unique way to store school supplies, beauty products, emergency items or anything else they like to have on-hand wherever they go.

These sheet masks are a must-have for a weekend self-care day. We love the calming lavender scent that offers hydrating effects, but they also come in brightening cherry blossom, nourishing honey and many more.

This compact keychain, available for both classic games Pacman and Tetris, is the perfect on-the-go entertainment they can take anywhere—we won’t tell if you “borrow” it to revisit some of your own faves!

If they’re a Selena Gomez fan, they’ll be ecstatic to receive this chic—and surprisingly affordable—bag she was seen carrying to the Golden Globes this year. 

39. Bookshop Gift Card


Is your teen an avid reader? If so, a Bookshop gift card is the perfect way to pick out their next favorite read, all while supporting an independent bookstore of their choice.

Packed in an adorable bunny-shaped container, these delicious Ferrero Rocher chocolate hazelnut bites can’t be beat.

These silk scrunchies will be gentle on their hair, while the crystal adornments give them a fun, glamorous vibe, meaning they’ll want to wear them *everywhere.*

TikTok is always grabbing our attention with the newest beauty products, like this probiotic underarm toner. It’s designed to ensure your sweat doesn’t stink, and it’s travel-sized, making it perfect for spritzing on before gym class.

Socks always seem to be the first thing lost to the dryer, or their sports bag, or wherever else they disappear to in the ether, and their Easter basket is the perfect opportunity to restock their collection. PureWow’s Executive Managing Editor Catrina Yohay especially loves this pair for their trendy mid-calf cut and versatile style.

This fan-favorite game is the perfect add to their basket for a post Easter brunch game that will get the whole family laughing. 

45. BeEverthine 1989 Candles


We know, we’ve got the Swifties covered above, but we just couldn’t leave out these fun, handmade candles inspired by 1989, with names like “Bad Blood” and “Shake It Off” that come in scents like lavender lemonade and dirty chai. Not to mention, if they’re more of a fan of Midnights, there are candles available featuring those titles, too.

If you have any warm-weather family vacays coming up, you’ll want to grab them one of these waterproof phone cases so they can use their phones poolside or even at the beach without fear of destroying them with an accidental dunk.

This entertaining game is a perfect rainy day activity, according to reviewers, who also mention it’s great for teens to play both with family and friends.

Make expensive nail salon trips a thing of the past thanks to this compact Le Mini Macaron gel manicure kit that comes with everything they need to do an at-home manicure. PureWow Associate SEO Editor Marissa Wu was super impressed with how long the polish lasted.

This phone holder caught our eyes on TikTok for the way it sticks straight to flat surfaces like mirrors with the built-in suction cups (making taking selfies or recording their own TikToks so much easier). Plus, it has a card holder slot so they can leave their bulkier wallets at home.

Fill their baskets to the brim with these smooth milk chocolate eggs that nearly *everyone’s* a fan of.
