    27 Things You Need To Celebrate The End Of Winter

    Time to ~spring~ forward, am I right?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A midi dress that will have you ripping off your parka and burying it next to all the skeletons in your closet. Hello, warmth.,

    Promising review: "I love love love this! It is so beautiful and flow-y β€” I never want to take it off!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in two colors).

    OH! And speaking of those parkas...

    2. Vacuum storage bags for all the winter outerwear that takes up WAY too much space in your closet. Space that could be used for spring dresses, thank you very much...

    These storage bags come with a tiny valve that you attach to your vacuum (or the hand pump they provide), which takes out ALLLL the air from inside the bag and compresses all the items inside. Plus, they're made with anti-microbial materials which means that yucky-smelling mold, mildew, and bacteria won't be able to weasel their way inside.

    Promising review: "I didn't believe that this product would work, but OH HOW WRONG I WAS! I purchased the jumbo-sized bags, and I was actually able to place over 20 thick sweaters in one bag, and three leather coats, five pea coats, and additional winter clothing into another bag. I was able to store all our winter clothing away, which created a ton of space and eliminated overwhelming clutter." β€”VickyGener85

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes).

    3. A woven basket to make you feel like Dorothy: carting Toto around, trying to escape from the Wicked Witch...except the weather is gorgeous and there's no tornadoes.

    This little basket will keep all your precious belongings safe during your beautiful, scenic bike ride.

    Promising review: "I love this basket! It's large, which I love: I can run to the store and put a small amount of groceries in there. The wicker isn't super stiff and brittle, so it doesn't break off, and the leather straps are also a nice touch. Super happy with it!" β€”jweis777

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    4. Travel-friendly tissue packs because spring means allergies, and allergies mean sneezing, and sneezing means you will suffer without several tissues on you at all times.

    Promising review: "These tissues are soft, and perfect for storing in your pocket or purse. Especially if you have allergies, you should always keep these on hand." β€”Mandy

    Get a pack of 16 from Amazon for $7.15.

    5. A small crossbody bag that sort of resembles a picnic basket. Which is great, because picnic season is officially upon us. #praisebe

    Promising review: "I purchased this bag over a month ago, and it is darling!! I received it in a timely manner and I just love it! These bags are all over Instagram, and I'm so glad I found this one at a great price." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.90 (available in three colors)

    6. Kid-friendly octopus kites to encourage you to leave πŸ‘ the πŸ‘damn πŸ‘ couch πŸ‘. Netflix will be there when you return! I promise!

    Promising review: "We have tried several kites, and these are the best! These are excellent flyers that you don't have to assemble at all β€” just remove the elastic from the tail and tie the string on. Very happy with these kites!" β€”Layna M.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $20.19.

    7. A WATERMELON-SCENTED lightweight moisturizer that can help boost radiance. It's great for warmer weather, when your skin isn't quite as parched.

    This splurge-worthy moisturizer is made with vitamin-rich watermelon extract, soothing botanicals, and hydrating hyaluronic acid designed to give combination/oily skin a radiant glow. It also may help even out your skin tone while providing oil-free hydration.

    Promising review: "I really like this moisturizer!! It's lightweight but packs a punch of hydration, and it keeps my oily t-zone in check. I love the watermelon scent (it's not too heavy), and I love how this brand is all-natural and doesn't use water in their formula β€” they use fruit and other natural juices that are great for your skin." β€”Stefanie0023

    Get it from Sephora for $39.

    8. Wedge sandals designed with COMFORT in mind. That's right, folks. These won't have you begging for flats after .5 seconds of wear.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shoes! They are SO comfy β€” I wore them to work all day and my feet were fine. I usually have a hard time with heels and most shoes (I have flat feet), and these gave me no problems at all! Awesome price, too!" β€”Amye

    Get them from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in five sizes).

    9. A handy dandy checklist pad to make spring cleaning seem slightly less daunting. After all, there's nothing better than putting a huge "check" next to a completed task.

    Promising review: "This notepad really helps me to not only stay organized, but it also motivates me to get things done!" β€”Lindsey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.38.

    10. And an extendable duster because spring cleaning means cleaning everything β€” including the top off your china cabinet that you haven't touched since 2001.

    This microfiber duster will wipe up alllllll the dust. And when it's absolutely filthy itself? Just throw it in the washing machine!

    Promising review: "I bought this specifically for our vaulted ceiling fan and transoms. We used it this evening and it worked perfectly! The bristles are strong enough to scrape all the caked on dust, and we were able to reach the fan from our loft with the tool fully extended." β€”Deedleann

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    11. A midwash denim jacket you can wear for the next 910 years, without fail. This blue number β€” like Taylor Swift β€” will never go out of style.

    "We never go out of style." β€”Taylor Swift, singing about herself and this jacket.

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this jacket! It's incredibly comfortable, the fit is perfect, and I love this shade of denim." β€”Chrissy

    Get it from ModCloth for $79 (available in sizes XS-4X).

    12. A birdhouse kit complete with wooden panels, nails, a hanging chain, hooks, glue, paint, a brush. And instructions, of course.

    Promising review: "The birds on the block are all raving about the new pad. They're demanding duplexes and double-wides now. Lets just hope they don't start in about the bird bath again. If you have gotten this far, congratulations! This bird house was easy for my old son to assemble, and it seems to be holding up well." β€”Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. Lace-up floral sneakers you'll want to wear with caution. The ground may break every time you take a step...

    Promising review: "These shoes are everything! I've been wearing Keds since I was a kid, and these are THE most beautiful pair I've ever owned! They are absolutely amazing: the quality, the vibrant colors, the floral design, the golden eyelets, and even the box! Whoever said money doesn't buy you happiness never bought these shoes!" β€”MRSSIDES

    Get them from Keds for $60 (available in sizes 5-11 and in two colors).

    14. A travel wallet that's a must-have for your spring break vacay. This'll hold your passport, cards, boarding passes, cash, soul, etc.

    Having a wallet that holds ALL your documents β€” your passport, your itinerary, your boarding passes β€” in one place will give you serious peace of mind. No more shoving important papers into your bag and then not being able to find them, ever again!

    Promising review: "This is a great travel wallet for passports! It keeps all of your travel documents in one place β€” I was able to store two passports and airplane tickets in this thing on my last vacation!" β€”Night Hunter

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 28 colors).

    15. A cornhole set to turn your backyard shindig into an event more competitive than the Olympics. Ice skating has nothing on this game.*

    *That's a joke. Ice skating is significantly more difficult than playing a game of cornhole, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

    Promising review: "This is excellent in every way! The surface has the perfect slide-to-friction ratio, and the set is durable and lightweight. Plus, everyone who has played this has had a blast! I would not hesitate to order this set again, as they make the perfect gift for a backyard party." β€”J. Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two sizes).

    16. A midi dress available in a whole bunch of gorgeous patterns and hues, all of which scream "SPRING IS FINALLY HERE".,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! The material isn't too thick or heavy, and it's got pockets, ya'll! I will most definitely be ordering more of these." β€”PaigeMyrissa

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 14 colors).

    17. A hypoallergenic sunscreen lotion because your skin will ~actually~ be making contact with the sun again! **Even though you should be wearing sunscreen all year long.**

    This cruelty-free, non-comedogenic sunscreen will give you protection without leaving your face feeling super sticky.

    Promising review: "I have super sensitive skin and this is the best sunscreen I have ever used β€” I've been buying it for years. It has a pleasant smell, isn't sticky, and doesn't stain my clothes. I mix this with a liquid BB cream every morning and apply to my face, neck, and chest, and put it on my whole body during beach and pool days." β€”Reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in SPF 15, 50, 50, and 70).

    18. A straw hat that will make you feel as if you're currently on spring break β€” even if your Debbie Downer of a bank account didn't let that happen this year.

    Or β€” if you're a lucky soul β€” you can actually wear it on your spring break. Please! Have fun for the rest of us! I insist! Hahahaha!

    By the way, this hat can be folded and packed away with your suitcase β€” it won't stay crinkled and wrinkled, because it's super easy to mold it back into shape!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this hat! It arrived flat in the box and I easily molded it into shape. I also packed it in a suitcase for a trip to the Dominican Republic, and I was able to reshape it again during the trip and had it in and out of my beach bag all week. I have received so many compliments on this adorable hat! I would not hesitate to purchase a second one." β€”Amanda K.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available with 38 phrases).

    19. Ankle strap sandals because it's time to give your toesies some SUNSHINE. *pedicure not required*,

    "It's been 84 years..." β€”my toes coming out of hibernation.

    Promising review: "I have these sandals in the black and pewter combination, as well as the nude and tan. Both pairs are still in great condition, and I was definitely not light on them during the summer months. I thought that perhaps the front edge might scuff or tear easily, which has happened with other sandals I have owned, but so far they haven't!" β€”Alexandra

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 26 colors).

    20. A v-neck flounce top you've already added to your shopping cart. Now just add the shipping info...payment info...hit the submit order's done.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $19.90 (available in sizes S-L and in two colors).

    21. A Degas-inspired umbrella because April showers may bring May flowers, but that shouldn't mean you have to suffer in the process.

    Suffer: a phrase which here means "to have to wear wet clothes at work all day".

    This umbrella folds up super conveniently, meaning it's easy to fit inside your purse AKA you won't be stuck without an umbrella when a torrential downpour starts β€” even when your iPhone weather app didn't predict said downpour.

    Promising review: "This is beautiful. I bought this for my 97-year-old mother to replace one she had in the past, and she is thrilled with it. The quality is great, and it's a nice small size that's easy for her to carry in her purse." β€”Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $11.56.

    22. And these adorable rain boots to keep your feet from suffering. No more sopping wet socks at work.,

    Promising review: "I wish I could give these boots more than five stars. These things are AMAZING β€” they fit like a glove and are just so cute. I feel very stylish while wearing them and most importantly, they keep my feet 100% dry. I seriously can't rave about these enough." β€”Erin Johnston

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in eight colors).

    23. A limoncello-scented soy candle to make your home smell like the lemonade stand you never had when you were a kid...

    @frugally_eclectic / Via

    ...but always wanted, because it looked so cool in the movies.

    Promising review: "Love the fragrance of this candle! Plus, it lasts a long time." β€”Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $21.49.

    24. A pressure washer to give your yard some much-needed TLC. It has endured snow! Sleet! Rain! A ton of leaves!

    Promising review: "Wow. I spent the entire day blasting dirt and ugly mold from my brick, cement, and vinyl siding. What a great time! Then I moved on to to cleaning cars...and it did an equally fantastic job." β€”P. Rautine

    Get it from Amazon for $129.

    25. A duster jacket you can slip on over any ensemble throughout these ~chilly, then not chilly, then chilly again~ months.

    The time to ~grow things~ has arrived!

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! I bought it for a friend who loves to cook; having an herb garden just seemed perfect for her. We had so much fun setting up the herbs two weeks ago, and they're already starting to grow." β€”T.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $20.

    27. Horoscope necklaces to signal the ARIES β™ˆ TAURUS ♉ and GEMINI β™Š season. (Although Scorpio season is the best, obviously.)
