Get to Know GiftYa, the Gift Card You Can Text

The Easter Bunny just got tech savvy! Teens are attached to their phones – so why not deliver one of their gifts straight to their device?

GiftYa makes it easy to customize and send a gift card by text or email. Just choose from thousands of local and national brands like Crocs and Roblox that teens are obsessed with, customize with a photo or predesigned wrapper, add a message, and it’s off. Schedule it in advance or send it instantly – it’s up to you!

Plus if your teen isn’t a fan of the brand you pick for any reason, there are several ways to exchange, cash out, or otherwise swap their balance – so they’re guaranteed to get something they really love!

1. Wireless Headphones

Keep Them Connected Without the Cords This Easter Season

Wireless headphones are all about convenience. Teens are constantly on the move, whether they're heading to school, hanging out with friends, or just chilling at home. With wireless headphones, they can jam out to their favorite tunes or binge-watch their top shows without getting tangled up in cords. Plus, no more accidental yanks when they're in the middle of a killer beat drop.

Whether they're hitting the gym, going for a jog, or just lounging around, teens can enjoy their music or podcasts without being tethered to their device. It's like having their own personal soundtrack wherever they go.

And let's not forget about style. Wireless headphones come in a range of cool (yes, even by teen standards!) designs and colors, so you can pick a pair that matches their personality. Whether they're into sleek and minimalistic or bold and vibrant, there's something out there that fits their vibe.

GiftYa Recommends: Text an Apple gift card to complete the gift. They’ll be able to use it towards fun games, their favorite music, or even an Apple TV+ subscription of their very own.

2. DIY Tye Dye Kit

Looking for a groovy gift for the teens in your life this Easter? Look no further than a tie-dye kit! Here's why it's an awesome choice…

Firstly, tie-dyeing is all about self-expression. Teens love to get creative and show off their unique style, and tie-dyeing lets them do just that. With a tie-dye kit, they can transform plain tees, hoodies, or even socks into vibrant works of wearable art.

Secondly, it's a fun and social activity. Whether they're dyeing solo or hosting a tie-dye party with friends, it's a great way for teens to bond and make memories together. Plus, the anticipation of unveiling their colorful creations is always a blast.

Lastly, tie-dyeing is a sustainable option. Instead of buying new clothes, teens can upcycle old ones and give them a new lease on life. It's a win-win for both creativity and the planet!

So, this Easter, give the gift of tie-dye and let the teens unleash their inner artist in style!

Sure their phone has tons of games and apps, and they’re probably always texting their friends, but first and foremost, a teen’s cell phone is a way for their parents to keep in touch with them in case of an emergency. Getting sent home from school early due to a water pipe burst? Text mom and dad. Need picked up early from a party? Text mom and dad.

Make sure their phone always has power when they need it when you get an external battery to extend the charge of their cell. It's all about convenience and peace of mind. No more frantic searches for outlets or rationing battery life – just uninterrupted enjoyment of their smartphone experience.Whether they're out with friends, capturing memories, or jamming to their favorite tunes, they can keep the fun going without a dead phone battery putting an end to the fun.

For just $25 this kit comes with everything they need to make a bath bomb – but you can upgrade it with some additional essential oils and other ingredients you pick up a la carte! Image courtesy Uncommon Goods.

As a teen, they may not have adult responsibilities like work and bills, but there’s still plenty to stress them out. Balancing friends and school work, trying to get good grades to get into a good college, taking the SATs, finals, managing their first relationships (and more than likely, their first heartbreak)... it’s a lot to deal with!

So help them unwind with not just a bath bomb, but a DIY bath bomb kit. They can customize this fizzy relaxation tool with whatever scent they find most relaxing, whether it’s vanilla or lavender (or both!) It's a thoughtful and indulgent gift that shows you care about their well-being.

GiftYa Recommends: Text a Bath & Body Works gift card so that they can complete the self care experience with a cozy candle or relaxing aromatherapy pillow mist.

Like a teen who has difficulty connecting with friends, who can’t find healthy ways to express themself, or who feels like they need to be “productive” even when it’s time to unwind.
