If you have any friends or relatives who are born in spring, it might be the right time to start shopping for their birthday presents. Although the best present is obviously something that reflects their interests, there are some gifts that are perfect for the season as well. From cozy clothes to colorful vases, here are a few creative present ideas that you can use as inspiration for your friend’s birthday.
Spring is not only the time of the renewal of nature but also the rejuvenation of our skin. After the long and cold winter months, our skin tends to be dry, flaky, and dull and it is in desperate need of help. Consider getting your friend some self-care products such as a nourishing hand cream, a sunblock lotion with a high SPF, or a set of hydrating face masks. Other self-care products like high-end shower gel, bath bombs, or scented candles can also help your friend relax and make this transitional season less stressful for their body.
For days with chilly mornings and hot afternoons, a knit cardigan is an excellent alternative to basic jackets. We recommend getting an Irish cardigan made of merino wool, as not only it has a unique design but it is also made of a highly insulating fabric that protects both from the cold and the hot weather. Plus, merino wool is one of the most long-lasting fibers so your friend or relative will remember this birthday present for a very long time. Thankfully these days there is a wide range of Irish cardigans for all budgets and fashion tastes so finding the best one will be a piece of cake.
In terms of food, spring is usually associated with Easter candies, berries, and delicious tarts with fresh fruits. Treat your friend with some seasonal delights, for example, a box of chocolate-covered strawberries or a bouquet made of fresh seasonal berries. If you feel like baking something, a lemon blueberry pound cake or a light pineapple ricotta cheesecake is a thoughtful present that is sure to be to their liking. However, if you’re not a big fan of cooking and would rather spend money on a fruity dessert made by a professional, give your friend a gift certificate to their favorite coffee shop or a fancy bakery that they’ve always wanted to try.
During the upcoming months we usually tend to bring something fresh and new into all aspects of our lives and our home is no exception. If you know that your friend likes to redecorate their place often and can’t pass a store without buying a new frame for photos or a beautifully-shaped candle, consider getting them a present that would refresh their living space. Get them a bouquet of fresh flowers as well as a colorful vase where they could put those, or invest in some high-quality pillows with vivid designs. A new plant can also make a wonderful gift that would spice up their living room, but don’t get one if you know that your friend doesn’t have the time to take care of it.
