Easter Baskets

Embrace A Family 
is an organization I have had the privilege to serve 
since it's creation 4 years ago.

Our mission statement is:
To match time and talents of volunteers with the needs of 
the single parent.

One of my "volunteer" activities through the years has been to 
put together Easter Baskets for the member's children. 
I love to do it.
 I will probably make 50-75 baskets this year.
Here's where you come in,
what ON EARTH do you put in a teenager's basket???
And worse yet, a teenage BOY???
and on top of that, we're a not for profit so I can't go all, 
I-Tunes, Gift cards, etc. I'm on a budget here!
I try not to load them up with useless "junk"
but also not a ton of candy.
Oh, and the baskets aren't huge, about 8 inches in diameter.

OK, there are your parameters, now, 

Oh, and in the time it has taken me to write this 
I have received requests of baskets for 16 kids!
Four of whom are teenagers!
Did I say 50-75?
