Easter Gifts For Preteen or Teenage Girls

with a Christian message!

Preteens and teens may sometimes feel too old for an Easter basket, or if they do get a basket, may want something other than a toy. Here are 12 ideas to help you with girls who fall into this category of yours!

1. By Grace Alone Necklace OR Walk In Love Necklace.
The by grace alone necklace has an 18″ chain and is gold plated, nickel and lead free.
The walk in love necklace has an 18″ chain and is rose gold plated, nickel and lead free.
Either of these necklaces would be a signature piece for them to wear and be reminded of their faith, and treasure for years to come.

2. Jesus Loves Me Mirror.
This mirror is 17″ D and hangs by a metal chain as you can see in the picture where I am holding it. On the bottom of the mirror it reads: This is the face of someone Jesus loves. I have loved you with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 NIV.

What a great thing for a young lady to know, and help her to be encouraged and feel extra loved every morning as she looks in the mirror.

3. Holley Gerth Book
If you have ever read a book written by Holley Gerth you’ll know why this book is a must for young ladies. She encourages and inspires in real life situations. These books come in a set of 2, and the “You’re Already Amazing” especially is such a great one for a teen Easter basket!

4. Love, Faith, or Hope Pouches.
These pouches are good for a variety of items such as makeup, cell phone, or coins. They come in 3 sizes. The Love Pouch measures 7″H × 10″W × 21/4″D, the Faith Pouch measures 55/16″H × 8″W × 17/8″D. and the Hope Pouch measures 4″H × 613/16″W × 11/4″D. Inside each of these bags are the words “beyond beautiful”. Words every young girl needs to read and hear!

5. Hello Hope Ring Dish, Beauty in Every Moment Trinket Dish, or Strength and Dignity Trinket Dish.
Girls and ladies love little dishes we can put on special jewelry on, and either of these 3 pieces would make a great gift. Pair it with one of the jewelry items listed here for an even more special gift! The Hello Hope Ring Dish measures 51/4″D × 4″H6, and has beautiful gold foiled lettering on it, just as the Beauty in Every Moment Trinket Dish (measures 61/6″W × 41/2″). The Strength and Dignity Trinket Dish is pewter measures 4 1/2″ diameter, and read these powerful words “she is clothed in strength and dignity. Proverbs 31:25.” Words to build confidence and assurance of God’s love.

6. Adventure On Crossbody Bag, or Adventure on Bracelet.
Do you have an courageous and adventurous young lady who loves to ride a bicycle? Well then this Adventure On Crossbody Bag she will adore! It is so youthful! Measures 8 1/2″H × 73/16″W × 23/8″D with a printed bicycle pattern on premium canvas combined with faux leather. Includes an adjustable strap. Printed cotton lining on inside of bag. Inside zipper pocket. Then the Adventure On Bracelet is another great piece with a great message! It has a 7″ chain, and the message on bar reads, Live Courageously & Adventure on. Message on back of circle charm reads, Psalm 16:11. 

Just cause you’ve a preteen or teen thinks she’s outgrown an Easter basket, you’ll give her a gift such as these to remind her she is loves not only by you, but by God!

DIY Photo or Card Display

1. Purchase a Blessings Cardholder. It is on sale in July for only $22.

2. Purchase a board such as this one, and ask the store to cut it 37″. I got mine at Menards for about $4.  Also purchase some 2 1/2″ burlap ribbon. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for about $8.

3. Lay the burlap ribbon the length of the board and staple it down with 2 staples on the reverse side. Stretch it tight and staple the other end with 2 staples also, then cut to trim. Repeat this process again to cover the other half of the board. The front and back of your should look similar to these pictures.



4. Place the cardholder on top of the burlap board. The bottom has a notch that fits right around the board, and the top has a hanger to hang onto the wall (hanging hardware included with he cardholder). When the cardholder is hung onto the wall, the board will hold in place. To make pretty I added a jute bow at the top, but this is optional!

This DIY project using the Blessings Cardholder makes it look a bit more rustic and give is a vintage look.

I hope you enjoy creating it, and comment below, what are you going to hang on it?
