Best Gifts for Spring Birthdays
Spring has almost sprung, and with longer days and brighter nights on the horizon, it's the perfect weather for all of those with a Spring birthday to head out and celebrate in the warming air.
We've created a list of our favourite Spring-ready birthday gifts, along with some great ways to celebrate the day.
Super Spring Celebrations
Take advantage of the longer (and slightly warmer) days by heading out into the garden for a get-together with friends and family. Make some fresh and fruity spring-inspired cocktails, and decorate with a selection of colourful pastels and fun prints for a bright and relaxed party outside (that can also be moved indoors if the weather starts to turn).
For a slightly more weather-dependant choice of celebration, why not pack a picnic and head out to a local beauty spot either in a group, or just with a loved one, for a low-cost, low-stress day. You could even go flower picking or take a few bikes for a relaxing bike ride. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast before you head out, or alternatively relocate your planned picnic into the garden to stay a bit closer to shelter.
And for the rainier days, why not huddle up indoors and host a tea party? Make up some finger sandwiches, and get together some jam and scones for a quintessentially British celebration, without the British weather. You could even go all out and host a Mad Hatters Tea Party, complete with a range of quirky teapots and plates (which can be easily sourced from charity shops and car boot sales), and maybe even some fancy dress.
