    29 Gift Ideas For Anyone With A Spring Birthday

    The only spring showers we're interested in are showers of perfect birthday presents.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An insulated picnic backpack so they're always prepared for a park picnic, beach feast, or any type of outdoor dining that their adventurous heart desires. It comes with everything they might need for a four-person picnic, including the blanket an insulated main compartment for food, and a detachable bottle bag.,

    This set includes everything necessary for a four-person picnic: four sets of stainless steel flatware, napkins, plates, plastic wine glasses, a cutting board, corkscrew, cheese knife, refillable salt and pepper shakers, with an insulated (and detachable) wine/bottle cooler bag, and a rolled fleece picnic blanket.

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. If you like having a picnic on a bike ride, hiking, around town, etc. this is a great little bag to have. Love the sturdy non-plastic cutlery and the ability to have dry storage, wet storage, and wine cooler. Blanket is a little small but not bad for two people. Highly recommend." —Mike A

    Get it from Amazon for $74+ (available in five colors).

    2. A pair of quilted mid-calf rainboots to keep their feet cute *and* dry throughout all those spring showers.,

    Promising review: "I bought these boots for a trip to London and Dublin. Knowing there would be lots of rain, I needed something to keep my feet dry. I was concerned about the comfort of wearing a rain boot. These boots did not disappoint. They were actually so much more comfortable than I could have imagined. They didn’t rub like some of the booties do. We walked 10 miles a day, right out to package. No blisters or discomfort. I would recommend them to anyone. You must wear socks with them, so plan for sizing accordingly. I logged 40k steps in these boots and now use them as daily barn boots. Great price and great product, cute too." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $25.49+ (available in sizes 5–9.5 and in four colors).

    3. An "I Love Cheese" subscription that curates *brie-lliant* monthly shipments of two to three top-notch cheeses and complementary nibbles so your favorite little cheesemonster can upgrade their charcuterie board game.

    Each Peach Market,,

    Each Peach Market is a Washington, DC-based small biz co-founded by two women, Emily and Jeanlouise. Discovering a shared love of food and a passion for making the world a better place, they launched Each Peach Market in 2013 with the goal of creating an approachable and warm shopping experience for the DC community that highlights fresh, high quality, and local products.

    Every month, they'll receive a box filled with two to three fresh, hand-picked cheeses paired with fun condiments and nibbles.

    Get it from Each Peach Market for $200+ (available in three- or six-month subscription lengths).

    4. A canvas market tote for spring trips to the farmer's market with enough pockets to keep their cheese from getting crushed by jars of homemade jam., Amazon

    Promising review: "At first I was disappointed that this bag wasn't larger but so much can be packed into the bag that if it were any larger I wouldn't be able to carry the weight. People frequently ask where I purchased it because it's such a great shopping bag." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $49.02+ (available in two colors).

    5. A MeUndies gift card if spring cleaning hit their underwear drawer hard and they need to re-stock their supply with underwear that offers top-notch comfort in make-them-smile colors and prints.

    They'll get a prepaid card to redeem at the shop or on a membership, which will get them a fresh pair of underwear every month in their preferred style. Boxer briefs, trunks, boxers, or briefs in men's sizes S–4XL are available. Hipsters, cheeky briefs, bikinis, boy shorts, or thongs in women's sizes XS–4XL are available. When it comes to color/pattern, they can go for adventurous (prints), bold (bright solids), or classic (neutral solids).

    MeUndies solved a problem I didn't even know I had. It almost makes me mad, because I was perfectly happy with most of my old underwear until I tried a pair of MeUndies and realized, after my first day wearing them, that I had not had to pick a wedgie or adjust my underwear at all. Something that is so subconsciously a part of my every day just wasn't there with MeUndies underwear. It was kind of magical. And then I promptly gifted a subscription to my boyfriend, who echoed my exact eureka moment back at me. Now I'm passionate about a pair of underwear in a way that I really never saw coming.

    Get a gift card from MeUndies for $25+ (available in larger amounts; suggested amounts for memberships available).

    6. A nonstick Dash mini griddle so they can cook more good food with less effort. This tiny powerhouse can sit right on their countertop, practically begging them to whip up single-servings of eggs, pancakes, bacon, and more without dragging out multiple pots and pans.

    It heats up within minutes, and both top and bottom are nonstick!

    Promising review: "Don’t waste time thinking about getting this — just get it! I’m in love with this little gadget! It’s so very easy to use and extremely convenient. All you need to do is plug it in and your home turns into an IHOP. I used this little beaut for the first time this morning and whipped out some perfectly cooked pancakes! It takes about four to five minutes to make each pancake. Expect flawless, golden-brown, consistently crafted pancakes that are completely effortless. And this skillet can be used for more than just pancakes! I fully intend on cooking eggs, bacon, quesadillas, steaks, and whatever else my heart desires on here. I got my eye on that mini waffle maker next!" —LesLeaLuvShopping

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. A hanging eucalyptus bundle to turn their shower into a spa — steam releases the eucalyptus scent, which encourages ~relaxation~ while helping to open sinuses and relieve annoying spring allergy symptoms.

    Eucalyptus Blooms / Etsy

    Eucalyptus Blooms is a North Carolina-based, woman-owned business that specializes in eucalyptus bunches designed to freshen up your home.

    Promising review: "Love love love it. Shipped quickly and arrived in beautiful condition. Scent is wonderful!! Will definitely be getting more." —Anna

    Get it from Eucalyptus Blooms on Etsy for $16.99+ (available in three sizes).

    8. A pretty, swingy cherry-print dress that'll make a *cherrific* addition to their spring wardrobe with long balloon sleeves to keep them warm on not-so-hot days while still releasing their legs from their wintry pant prison.


    Get it from LOFT for $89.50 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and petite sizes XXS–M).

    9. Plus, these block heel sandals for a trendy go-with-everything style that's comfortable enough to actually enjoy wearing as the temperatures rise.,

    Promising review: "These are basically my everyday shoes. I wear them in the office and I wear them out and about. I went out with my friends one night and danced for six hours. My feet were sore by the end of the night but I was able to still walk without taking them off. They're comfortable and look nice. I get compliments on them all the time. Goes with almost all of my outfits." —Quyen

    Get it from Amazon for $16+ (available in sizes 5–10 and in four colors).

    10. A compact pocket projector because big-screen movie viewing shouldn't be limited to just their living room. Backyard movie night, anyone?

    This projector can connect to virtually any device and has a built-in battery that lasts for 1.5–2 hours when fully charged.

    Promising review: "iPhone or Android adaptors are not included. However, charging cable micro-USB-to-USB is provided along with HDMI-to-HDMI cable for video transfer. It came charged so I was able to try it out immediately. My phone was projected after about 5-10 seconds of connecting it. Brightness is great even when the ambient light is on. Sound is also pretty clear and decently loud for movies. This is an awesome product, the basics you would want in a projector in a very compact size!" —Lucy

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99.

    11. This TRUFF spicy mayo if you want to spice up the life of your favorite spring-born babe with a condiment that'll add a gourmet flair to even the humblest of dishes.

    several bowls filled with a corn dip next to a jar of Truff mayo

    If you're not a spicy mayo lover, get out now. This isn't for you. But if you, like me, are whipping up your own siracha/mayo combinations with more meals than not, then I see absolutely no reason you won't love having this around. Like TRUFF hot sauce, it has that same luxe truffley flavor but isn't quite so spicy. The heat is a lot subtler (which for mayo I think is spot-on). The jars are small so if you're a spicy mayo addict you will go through it, but WOW it is nice to have delicious, pre-made spicy mayo in the fridge. 10/10. Truff, you did it again.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A dainty initial necklace so they're reminded of you every time they wear this perfectly personalized pendant, which is going to be all the time since it goes with ~everything~.


    Promising review: "The best necklace I’ve ever had! It’s the perfect size and length, and so dainty! I was worried about the gold fading (because it’s so wonderfully affordable) but it hasn’t — not even a little bit! I’ve worn it every single day for about a month now, even accidentally wore it in a chlorinated pool for a little bit but nothing happened and it’s never been damaged! It has become such a staple for me and my everyday outfit, I don’t feel complete without it anymore. Would highly recommend and will be buying another if this one ever breaks!!" —Brittany Burrahm

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 26 letters and with or without pavé details).

    13. A four-bottle apéritif sampler to endlessly upgrade their at-home, sippin' cocktail game with refreshing, spring-ready flavors like Grapefruit Jalapeño, Lemon Lavender, and more.

    Haus, Danielle Healy / BuzzFeed

    The sample comes with four 200-ml bottles. You can default to four Haus flavors of their choice or you can pick your own! Note that due to shipping laws, Haus is currently unable to ship to Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Rhode Island, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, and Utah.

    After trying the new Grapefruit Jalapeño flavor (sold out except for as part of the sampler) I can confirm that I'm REALLY into it and the whole Haus concept. Made with tequila-lovers in mind (it me), this refreshing yet subtly spicy drink is delicious on its own and makes for a potent — but yummy — drink with a splash of liquor. I fully intended to try the rest of their flavors, and the sampler kit seems like a great way to do just that!

    Get it from Haus for $40.

    14. A springy 16-color eyeshadow palette that brings the good vibes of spring pastels to their eyes with buildable color in both matte and shimmer finishes.

    BH Cosmetics

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $12.

    15. A portable hammock for taking their top-notch lounging skills to the great outdoors. This hammock folds up teeny tiny and comes with the tree straps and carabineers they'll need to get it up and hanging in no time.


    Promising review: "I got the double hammock to use while camping or at the park/beach. My partner and I tried it out the other day for the first time and it's great. Our combined weight is about 300 pounds and everything held up perfectly. It was simple to set up and using it was fun and relaxing! The hammock material is durable, yet thin/breathable. I was worried it would feel cheap or tarp-like, but it is quite comfortable. We were swinging back and forth and the straps and hammock held tight. I am very happy with this purchase. The colors are much better in person as well! My partner and I could completely close it up around us while inside the hammock, offering privacy or cover from the sun. I imagine it would be nice for sleeping or napping. Highly recommend!" —yoba

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95+ (available in two sizes and in 15 colors).

    16. A wooden ring toss drinking game because everything is more fun with a little competition. A twist on the classic Bimini ring bar game, both players try and hook their ring, advancing the shot glass to the next hole in the opposing direction with each successful toss. The first player to move the score peg off of the ladder wins — loser drinks!


    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes and in three styles).

    17. A cute and convenient manicure kit housed in a rose gold magnetic clutch if they've been dying for warmer weather to show off their always on-point mani/pedi.

    a rose gold-colored case next to nail clippers, flat glass file, rounded glass file, toe nail clippers, and a cuticle pusher

    The kit includes a rose gold magnetic clutch that neatly fits the included nail clippers, flat glass file, rounded glass file, toenail clippers, and a cuticle pusher.

    Get it from Orly for $28.

    18. A portable campfire from the geniuses over on Shark Tank so they can take ambient fireside chats literally anywhere. It's as easy as placing the disc on a non-flammable surface, lighting with a match, and using the lid to snuff out the flame when the night is done!,

    It's made from recycled soy wax and recycled paper briquettes to minimize their environmental impact, and burns reliably for over three hours. They can keep lighting and re-lighting it until all the briquettes are burned up.

    Promising review: "If you don't have space or time for a backyard fire pit, this is the perfect solution! We use this on our back deck. The flame gets about 12 inches high but is contained in the can. When we're done, we just put the lid on. It lasts for hours and multiple nights of burning. I've ordered as gifts, given as gifts and bought three for our use. Just love this product. It's soy so it's not toxic. Highly recommend!" —J. Bonfilio

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    19. A lightweight Sand Cloud towel (another Shark Tank alum) to eliminate the worst part about going to the beach — scratchy, sandy towels. This one is way lighter than regular terry towels, super absorbent, and sand slides right off!

    Amazon, @sand_cloud / Via

    Promising review: "I wish I had bought this sooner. Sand doesn't stick to it, they bead water when it just drops onto the towel but it will absorb all the water on your skin when you are drying off. I was wary that all of the commercials and ADs were overselling this but I genuinely couldn't be happier!" —J

    Get it from Amazon for $44.

    20. A two-piece linen lounge set that will supply them with a cute and coordinated ensemble to wear when they're ready to give their COVID sweatpants a break.

    Piglet, Danielle Healy / BuzzFeed

    Founded by Jessica Mason, Piglet is a United Kingdom-based small biz creating comfortable yet beautiful home essentials like sleepwear, bedding, table linens, curtains, and more. The brand focuses on linen goods because of its relatively low environmental impact, low maintenance, and versatility (it's warm in the winter, breathable in the summer).

    This set is very comfortable, washes up well, and doesn't make me feel like a total slob when lounging around the house. I'm usually a medium, but I followed the Piglet sizing guide and opted for a small, which was definitely the right move. The top is a little big under the arms (a common problem for me). It's nothing egregious, but something to keep in mind if you're smaller-chested. As the weather warms I can totally see myself wearing this out of the house for some roof reading or errands and will feel cute and comfortable doing so!

    Get it from Piglet for $99 ( available in sizes XS—XL and in blush, midnight stripe, and white).

    21. A Home Chef gift card for making their hectic days a little less hectic with easy-to-make dinner recipes and pre-portioned ingredients they can whip up in under 30 minutes! For days when cooking just isn't going to happen, they can opt for ready-made meals with ready-made peace of mind when their tummy starts rumbling.

    They'll get a box filled with portioned and labeled ingredients from a rotating selection of meals (that you choose!) catering to carb-conscious, calorie-conscious, and vegetarian diets. Cancel or pause at any time, so you only ever get as many meals as you need!

    Get it from Home Chef for $65+ (available in larger amounts).

    22. An indoor herb garden starter kit because nothing screams "spring" quite like trying their hand at becoming the green-thumbed gardening master they've always wanted to be — even if they live in an apartment.


    The entire kit includes five USDA Organic seed tubes (basil, cilantro, parsley, sage, thyme), five soil discs, five peat pots, five wooden plant markers, and 26-page seed starting instructional pamphlet.

    Promising review: "I was blown away by this kit! I expected all of the things to be included but the quality of the packaging and the thought that went into this is amazing. The seed containers are so cute! The soil disks make wonderful fluffy soil. The plant markers have a place to date when you plant them. The instruction guide is extraordinarily thorough. The whole package together is perfect to gift to someone." —C.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    23. A personalized birthdate candle if they're the type of friend who's always asking if they can make your birth chart. This all-natural soy and coconut wax candle combines astrology, numerology, and tarot to create individualized labels and scents for every single day (and personality) of the year.

    Birthdate Co.

    Launched in 2019, Birthdate Co. is a small biz creating candles and books with customized astrological information for every single day of the year, making a perfect customized gift!

    Promising review: "This candle was a gift to my niece she called me raving about this candle she said she loved the astrology of it she was blown away with that it was made for her she also loved that it smelled so good. She also said that this is the best gift she had received which made my heart flutter with happiness. I have to look to top this for next year cause I loved her reaction. Will come back to buy another." —Gloria R.

    Get it from Birthdate Co. for $38 (originally $48; available in 365 styles).

    24. An assorted 12-stem lily bouquet you can have delivered straight to their door so they can spring-ify their space with fresh flowers even if you're hundreds of miles away.


    Promising review: "Absolutely loved, loved this arrangement. The colors were spectacular. The blooms continued to open for over a week. Thank you for helping to make someone's day so much better." —kmsmith

    Get it from Amazon for $38.77.

    25. Some paraben-free body butter with shea butter, grape seed and rice bran oils, and candelilla wax for helping their dry winter skin get shorts season-ready without the usual body lotion greasy feeling.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Butter by Keba is a woman-owned small business founded by Makeba Lloyd and based in NYC. Their plant-based formulas are made with natural organic essential oils, phthalate-free fragrance, and are paraffin-, petroleum-, and mineral oil-free.

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer and product-tester extraordinaire Rachel Dunkel tried this body butter for herself:

    "I've been using this body butter for over six months and simply adore it. It goes on in such a perfectly smooth, hydrating layer and soaks into skin quickly while moisturizing literally all day. I have it in the scent 'La Vera' which is delicately light and fresh. One of the things I like most about the body butter is the level of scent — it's not too overwhelming but is definitely present, and most importantly subtly lasts all day."

    Get it from Butter by Keba for $20+ (available in two sizes and 10 scents).

    26. A box of gourmet sandwich cookies that are like fancy, chocolate-dipped Oreos from heaven. And like Oreos, they're going to have trouble eating just one.

    The box includes 12 sandwich cookies, each handmade, hand-dipped in milk chocolate, and decorated with six assorted toppings.

    Promising review: "Received these cookies for my birthday and what a surprise! Never seen anything like them! They are so pretty and looked perfect in the well-packaged box. Enjoyed Granny Bella's story on the inside of the box. The best part was the treat! So tasty! A nice variety of flavors. Couldn't eat just one!" —Donni Franiak

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    27. An easy-to-install hummingbird feeder for turning their perfectly-average window into a bird observatory with 100% free admission and complimentary snack (from their own kitchen).


    Promising review: "This hummingbird feeder is made with large powerful suction cups so I have no concerns that the feeder will fall. The nectar is close to the feeding holes so the birds have no trouble feeding. I also like that it's very easy to see that the birds have been feeding, even when you don't catch them in the act because the nectar levels are clearly visible. It's very easy to empty, clean, and refill. I tried two other feeders from other manufacturers and found problems with both, but this one is a keeper!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    28. A variety pack of Asian-inspired sparkling water because warmer spring temps call for bold refreshing drinks they can enjoy any time with a meal, on its own, or as a fruity cocktail mixer.


    Sandro Roco, a Queens-born Filipino American, launched the brand in 2018 after noticing a big disconnect between the modern labels of new-age drinks and the preservative- and sugar-laden labels of the legacy Asian brands. Sanzo's sparkling waters aim to bridge cultures, by celebrating authentic Asian flavors using real fruit and no added sugars or artificial flavors.

    Promising review: "We drink a lot of seltzer / sparkling waters at the house. I typically buy the generic Whole Foods brand when I get our groceries. I had tried Sanzo a few times in NYC pre-pandemic, and just saw that they are available now via Prime. Nothing against the standard sparkling water flavors / generic brands (they're great value), but Sanzo really takes it to the next level. The flavor profiles are rich and complex, and just incredibly satisfying. I love that they're bringing some of these traditionally underrepresented flavors to market, and the fact that they're a click away with free shipping is quite exciting :-)" —bean

    Get a variety 12-pack from Amazon for $34.99.

    29. A Cardalloon that's part card and part balloon for a surprise they certainly won't forget. Your custom message will appear on the box. All they have to do is press the big red button and watch the balloon inflate! Opt for something timely with the Facemask Birthday style, or sentimental with a sweet Miss You message.


    Get one from Cardalloon for $39.95 (available in 15 styles).
