All the fun holiday surprises I see on Pinterest are great for younger kids, but just not appropriate for tweens and teens. I love the idea of a "Boo Kit" - anonymously gifting someone with a basket of Halloween treats. I decided to modify this to a Boo Kit that tweens and teens will truly appreciate!
Let's face it. What's most important to them? Their phones. Their tablets, their laptops... staying plugged in and charged up.
I found these fun emoji baskets through Walmart. My store didn't have them in stock but I ordered them online and had them shipped to my store - super easy.
I don't know about your kids, but socks are a thing with mine. I have all boys, and fuzzy socks are coveted. I found these in the Dollar Spot section at Target.
In Walmart I came across some coordinating accessories - emoji stickers and cups. Because this is how we roll, I thought the poop cups would be funny. They have other ones if you are not as crass as my family.
On to the crown jewel of this kit. I don't know about your kids, but mine lose phone accessories like it's their job. If I'm buying, it's going to be inexpensive. If they want higher end accessories, their wallets better be open. I found these accessories in Walmart for $3.50 each. That most definitely fits the budget of this project. Earbuds (a two pack!), a portable charger and a wall plug each all went in my cart.
I also love the super cute Boos sign I found in the Target Dollar Spot. I threw in some of their favorite candy - sour worms, gummy fish and bubble gum. I saw this multi-plug outlet on Amazon and jumped on it - don't the plug faces look just like emoji faces?!?! This will be handy on an upcoming hotel stay when I never know how many plugs there will be. It's the Bestten 4 Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector with 2 USB Charging Ports (2.4A/Port, 3.1A Total) and Safety Covers. (Amazon affiliate link).
I can't wait to surprise my teens with this fun kit! You could also include gift cards to download Google or Apple apps or services. A Pokemon Go! theme would be fun as well. Get creative and style your Boo Kit to your tweens / teens tastes.
**Update** - I just came back from Five Below and they had all these Emoji items! If you have a Five Below store in your area, it's a good resource!
What would you add to a tween or teen Boo Kit?
