Spring Gift Ideas

My thought about gifts is that most of us don't really need more "stuff," but most of us do love receiving a little something special that has a sentimental or personal touch -- something that has meaning to us, whether it is about our faith, our family, or something unique about us.

Maybe you'll be visiting with family or friends (or maybe they will be visiting you!), and you'd like to sprinkle them with some gratitude or joy.  Or maybe you need a wedding gift or a new baby gift.  I'm sharing some ideas for you today.

Spring Ideas for Gifts and Your Home:



First, a quick handmade treat. It's just a "little something," but sometimes those are the sweetest gifts, aren't they?  You could set one at each place setting as a little party favor.  Or keep a little bowl of these by your door to treat visitors.

Here's how to make this little "candy basket" with just a few supplies and some Hershey's kisses:



I used a large circle punch to create a tiny candy basket that will hold 3 Hershey's kisses.  (My circle punch is scalloped, but it will work with a regular one too.)

First, I punched the circle from some cardstock and stamped a little "bless you" sentiment on one side (that could have just as easily been hand lettered.)  I then scored a couple of lines about 3/4" apart in the center of it, and folded the sides up to create the "basket."  I punched a couple of holes on each side at the top, added the chocolates inside, and tied it together with a small piece of ribbon. (Not an award winning bow, but you get the idea...)  Make these with your kids or grandkids. It's the little things!


If you would rather shop for a few sweet items, here are some ideas I love:



This little bunny dessert stand is perfect for cookies, cupcakes, fruit, or candy.  Absolutely adorable.






These itty bitty white ceramic birds would look sweet for a spring display, your Easter table, or a bridal shower.  Or just anytime decor. (Can you tell I'm falling in love with the white ceramic?)





I don't know what it is about these Nordic Ware specialty pans, but I want all of them.  (Remember the fall loaf pan from this post?)  I want to make these bunny cakelets.



This little heart affirmation pillow is special.  I so wish I had been able to give this to my daughter when she was in middle or high school. The handwritten affirmation note cards that you write and tuck into its pocket on the back would have lifted her so much. Scripture from Isaiah 43 is stitched on the back. I also love the colors and design.






Nana and new mama alert!  If you have a new little one to shower with a baby gift, I love this sweet newborn blanket and headband set.  Photo-shoot perfection.





Or this precious monthly milestone blanket (!)



This great  wooden clipboard is one of those things that I look at and say, "I could make that," (if I had the supplies, and the time...)  For someone who loves rustic decor, this would be a great wedding gift, with photos from the wedding attached.  I am very much into lettering quotes these days, so switching them out so easily appeals to me.  Give it as is, or add the photos, quotes, etc., as part of the gift. 




I hope you enjoyed my little spring gift ideas!

  1. Those mugs give me such a nice feeling. I think I'll have to buy them for myself! Everything else is awesome too. Tis the season type of things. I love the feelings of lighter things, cleaner things, and new life too!

    1. I love them too. The texture seems kind of wintry, but I'm drawn to the simplicity of them. Yes, I'm so grateful for spring! It never fails to surprise me.
