How about a "spa basket"? Nail stuff, hair stuff, face masks whatever and do it together!

I have girls that age and they still like getting baskets - just filled with stuff they like, books, new book light, summer clothes, wii games or movie, art stuff, colored pencils and they still like getting Jelly Belly jelly beans

Hello,
My daughter is 13 and still wants an easter basket. So this year I bought her a pocketbook (small hobo bag) and put candy and girly things in it! she loved it!!!!!! When they get older you just have to invest in more girly items!!!

Since they are girls I would think that they would love a new outfit or a nice piece of jewelry.

I know what you mean! My kiddos are still basket-aged so to speak, but I always fill their baskets with toys and stuff that they'll like rather than a bunch of candy. Well, I put a few pieces in lol. All girls love chocolate! Just put in some girlish goodies that you know they are into....good luck!

We got the kids big beach towels one year. The best selection is gone by the time summer is here so it worked out great and they know exactly which towel is theirs. My kids are 20, 15, 13, 12, 10, and 7; they still like the candy but don't care if they get the fru fru stuff so I usually just do a big basket as a centerpiece and they all graze out of if.

I have 7 Children. Ages ranging from 5 to 16 all girls but one lonely little man =)... I give them all easter baskets. The older girls just get flip flops candles hair tyes and such and I always throw something funny in there like this year it is bunny ears and Of course I will get a memorable pic. Don't forget the Chocolate.

Teen and preteen girls love candles, so how about a candle making kit from a craft store, not Walmart, a real craft store. For something to do together, how about making scented bath salts?

One of my friends started the tradition of giving there girls there swimsuits for easter. This is probably strange but my parents still give easter baskets to my bother age 31 and I age 35. She put movie passes, gift certificates for resturants, money and of course candy! Over time they have turned into couples baskets and our spouses are included. Last year we drew eggs that contained $1-$20 even lotto tickets. I understand some of his may be to old for your children but I just thought I would share what we do...I'm not sure if my husband and I get one this year now that we have a 5 month old. :( we will see. LOL
