It’s time to get in gear for spring: air out those cupboards, make room in your garden for your favorite flowers, and start dreaming of summer.
Whether you have a laundry list of springtime birthdays, or you’re planning to present your bestie with the perfect hostess gift at an upcoming party, here are 25 of our favorite gifts inspired by warmer weather:
Gifts for the Gardener
Do you know someone who can’t spend enough time turning over compost or planting bulbs? Check out these great gift suggestions for friends who rock a green thumb.
- Veggie-inspired earrings
Gardeners may appreciate simplicity, but that doesn’t mean they don’t dress up every now and then, too. Whether you opt for an elegant, gold pair of string beans – like this pair, featured in Martha Stewart – or a decidedly cute set of stud earrings, you can never go wrong with a little bling.
- An indestructible caddy
If your friend spends most of her time in the dirt, then she needs something strong and durable to cart around gardening essentials. Try this caddy from Canoe, which can hold all her seeds and spades with style to spare.
- A spade upgrade
When you spend all your time outside, a well-made tool can seem like an old friend. Get your bestie a spade upgrade with this fancy number from Garden Tool Co. Or, if you know your gardener’s trying to get her kids involved, try this mother-daughter set from Martha Stewart.
- Pretty planters
Give the gardener in your life something pretty to showcase all of her hard work. You can’t go wrong with terra cotta planters – like this pretty glazed pot we found on Etsy – or even something a little more inventive, like this hanging planter.
- A personalized seed kit
If you know your friend’s favorite flower, consider a personalized seed kit that’ll warm her heart. Check out this option from Beau Coup for lots of inspiring flower and veggie combinations – this also makes a perfect wedding or party favor!
Fashion Week Favorites
Once spring arrives in New York, fashionistas everywhere line up to see the latest trends on the runway. You don’t need a backstage pass to feel like a million bucks, though. Here’s what to get the friend whose eyebrows are always “on point” or the lady in your life who would rather spend money on a mani-pedi than movies and popcorn.
- A bright, luxe tote
Nothing says “check me out” like a statement tote in a bright color. What about this reversible vegan leather number in a lovely coral from Urban Outfitters? Or kick it up a notch with this bright pink tote from Target. Either way, your friend will feel like a million bucks when all eyes are on her – congrats, trend-setter!
- DIY mani-pedis
Get your skin in shape for the summer with our Hold My Hand Gift Set of all-natural lotions. The sampler includes four luxurious, scented lotions, including coconut, honey almond, french lavender, and vanilla bean. Once your skin is perfect, check out these suggestions for non-toxic nail polish and have fun getting gussied up.
- Wrap dress
If you know your bestie’s dress size and could devote an entire lookbook to her style, then consider extending her already flawless wardrobe with a classic wrap dress. By highlighting the waistline and creating an hourglass figure, wrap dresses flatter every shape and come in a range of styles and colors.
- Soft, summer-ready lips
In order to prep lips for bright, spring lipsticks, use our Mint Lip Gift Set to slough off old skin and moisturize your pucker. Your BFF will be grateful for a little self-care in a box.
- Major shades
Home and Hearth
Now that winter’s over, everyone’s getting ready to throw open their doors for the first parties of the season. Not sure what to get your favorite host or hostess? Here are some picks that will lend a drop of sunshine to any home.
- A simple, homey vase with fresh-cut flowers
You can never go wrong with handing a hostess flowers! Set your bouquet apart in a rustic mason jar or jazz it up with a set of these gilded bud vases.

If your host or hostess with the mostest is a cocktail aficionado, consider this bar upgrade from Williams & Sonoma. Your friend will be able to turn out mojitos with extra flare once this mortar and pestle finds its way into her kitchen.

Headed to a cocktail party? Pull out these fun-loving embroidered napkins for a show-stopping tablescape.

Quality linens are hard to come by, but they don’t have to be boring. Why not brighten up your host’s kitchen with some extra colorful hand towels?
- Windowsill box
A low-maintenance windowsill box is the perfect present for a new homeowner, or a chef in the making who can’t live without fresh herbs.
April Shower Power
Nothing says ready for the rainy season like cute seasonal wear. Help your buds stay dry with these weatherproof wonders:
- Garden wellies
Keep your BFF’s feet dry with a snazzy pair of rainproof rubber boots. Puddles, beware.
- Best-ever rain coat
- An indestructible bag
With all the gadgets we carry around, a weatherproof bag is essential once spring storms conspire to wash out our picnics. Check out this nylon bag from Target for the friend who’s always on the go, or this this classic from Longchamp for your chicest gal pal.

If your friend’s a runner, these water-resistant earbuds may be the answer to her prayers. As long as her iPod is safely tucked away in a dry spot, these earbuds will help her power through the next mile.
As soon the weather starts to get warm, it’s almost impossible to not spend all day long dreaming about your next vacation. Gift the friend who has a yen for travel one of these stylish, trail-worn must-haves.
- Wrinkle spray
When you’re constantly on the road, no amount of rolling your clothes in your suitcase will eliminate unsightly wrinkles. Consider gifting your road warrior friends with a little bit of wrinkle spray to help maintain their wardrobe.
- Herbal eye mask
Spring break travel can mean long flights and longer headaches. Use this herbal eye mask from Brookstone to relax on the plane or in your hotel room once you reach paradise.
- DIY sachets
Avoid stinky suitcase syndrome with these DIY sachets. The homemade touch will make your traveling friend think of you every time she opens her luggage – plus, making them is the perfect excuse to clean out your closet and repurpose those old sweaters!
- Best beach tote
If your friends are headed to the beach this summer, they’ll love a fashion-forward tote – like this woven bag with a zippy stripe – to help them haul all their stuff out to sea.
- Snorkel camera
We couldn’t resist this gadget, which combines a snorkeling mask with a waterproof camera. Encourage your bud to get up close and personal with sea life – it may be hard to take a selfie, but we guarantee the images from their vacation will still be pretty darn cool.
