I love celebrating Easter with my kids and putting together an Easter basket they’ll wake up to on Sunday morning.
But at the same time, I want them to know that Easter is not just about chocolate candies, colored eggs, and white bunnies. Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate. And our family has so much fun dyeing Easter eggs!
But when it comes down to it: Easter is about Jesus. So how do I find a gift that has more meaning? If you’re trying to find Easter gifts that will encourage your child’s faith, here are some ideas for all ages, from preschoolers to teens!

Easter is the perfect time for a new Bible and we love the Jesus Storybook Bible for Kids.. Sally Lloyd-Jones does a beautiful job telling the story of God’s never stopping, never giving up love.
The Adventure Bible works well as a transition Bible between storybook Bibles and the regular Bible.

Easter Gifts for Teens
Teens might be harder to buy for, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t options for Easter gifts. Easter is the perfect time to buy your teen a Bible or devotional book or even a journal. Because I have a 13 year old, there are more ideas for teen girl Easter gifts, but I did include a few teen boy suggestions too.
