The spring season is a time when you can spread cheer to other people. It could be a family member who has been going through a difficult time or a friend who needs to know that someone cares. Spring gift baskets are an option to consider if you’re looking for a simple way to spread sunshine. With all of the different items that you can add to the basket, you can make a gift for any age and with any theme.
Some of the items that you can use in a gift basket for spring include fresh fruits and flowers, items that can be used in the garden and items that are bright and cheerful. If the person you’re giving the basket to likes a certain fragrance, then get items that are made with that scent or a color associated with that scent. An example is a lavender basket. You can include sprigs of lavender as well as soaps, bath wash, lotions and sprays that have a lavender fragrance. Add a mug or a few items that are purple, tying a purple ribbon at the top of the basket to complete the gift.
Someone who likes gardening might like a basket full of seeds, bulbs, gloves and a few gardening tools that can fit in a small basket. Try to find a gardening basket with pockets on the sides. Put packs of seeds in the pockets with the larger items in the basket. A few homemade items, such as cookies or a simple cake, can also be included. Another type of basket that you can make in the spring is an Easter basket. This is an idea for the kids in your life. You can get simple plastic baskets or a simple basket with a handle for a dollar or two. Add items that are age-appropriate, such as a coloring book, crayons, bubbles, a jump rope and even a few Easter eggs. Add a few pieces of candy as well. The ideas for a spring basket are endless because you can include so many different items depending on who will receive the basket.
