Spring is a favorite season of many. The long cold winter time is over. Everywhere you look is like a new and fresh beginning. Outdoors, you can hear again the birds chirping happily. The flowers bloom and the greens grow back again. Spring has more sunshine to enjoy outdoors. One of the most anticipated Spring holiday is Easter, but surely there are other occasions too during this time of the year - birthdays, weddings, anniversaries.

Take advantage of the abundance available and appropriate for the season. Here are some season-themed gift ideas you can give all through out spring:

The ultimate spring-themed gift is the spring gift basket, loaded with assorted goodies of all the season's best - snack mix like cookies, chocolate, lollipops, garden candle, teas and mugs. For avid tea drinkers, why not give them tea gift baskets instead? Put in gourmet tea pack or box, a tea mug, honey, and snack mix of cookies, chocolate, etc.

Picnics are commonly held in late springtime. Again, some stores make ready made picnic baskets stuffed with picnic goodies. Or you can also make your own. If you're making gourmet baskets for example, choose a classic picnic basket and stuff in gourmet food like bread sticks, wheat, cheese, cold cuts like smoked salmon, summer sausage, and more. You can also include a bottle of wine too.

A custom-made backpack gift is great for hikers and outdoor lovers. Spring is also loaded with many outdoor activities like hiking and camping. The ideal backpack should be packed with outdoor essentials and lightweight at the same time. If you're hiking yourself, knowing what items to include should be easy. You can put in a small first aid kit, flashlight and other outdoor gears like water flask. Alternatively you can also pack in healthy snacks.

For certified baseball fans, game time snack gift packs are perfect. Choose from classic game snacks like nuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, chocolate bars, pretzel, popcorn, chips, etc. You can put several kinds in a basket or a ball-shaped tray. Plus they're also inexpensive and are readily available. You can buy them in packs in your local convenient store.

Spring is obviously the time for gardening and planting. Garden-themed gifts are most welcome. Garden enthusiasts will surely love them. They're also great for aspiring hobbyists or for those who are just starting out. Garden gift baskets are common and they range in size too. There are ready-made garden baskets you can buy in specialty stores complete with accessories. Most common are seed packets, gardening gloves, gardening tools, knee pad, gardening books, garden hat, tote bags, and gourmet snacks.

You can also make your own garden basket. Most materials you'll need are available in specialty stores. List the items you want to include in your basket. Choose the size of your basket and put the items in neatly organized. Wrap the basket with clear plastic if you must, and don't' forget to put a ribbon and gift tag.
