Spring Gift Occasion Checklist

Last weekend, I showed up at a birthday party late. Really late, like 24 hours. Whoops. Realizing the party had been Saturday, not Sunday, we left the birthday present hanging on the doorknob of the darkened house, sent our friends a text, and slunk away. It’s easy to lose track of dates and days when everyone is moving so fast, and hey, how did it get to be April already? This year is flying. So to help you avoid missing any spring gifting occasions, I’ve assembled a checklist for you. Happy Spring!

√ Prepare for Passover

Pesach, or Passover, is coming up soon: It’s April 14 to 22nd this year. If you need a new seder plate or want to send a kosher gift basket, now’s the time to shop for Passover.

√ Prep for Easter

Easter is Sunday, April 20th, so it’s a good time to start ordering your personalized Easter baskets, Easter basket stuffers, and figure out how you’re going to decorate for Easter.

√ Plan for Administrative Professional’s Day

If you or your office works with an administrative assistant, you’ll need a gift on Wednesday, April 23rd. Browse our Gifts.com slide show with some suggestions for what to get an administrative professional.

√ Gather Mother’s Day Ideas

Everyone wants to know: When is Mother’s Day? This year, it’s Sunday, May 11th. It will come sooner than you think, so start thinking about what you’ll get Mom, whether it’s a personalized gift, gifts for a new mom, jewelry gifts or tasty food treats. Click for Top 10 Gifts for Mother’s Day to get some inspiration, and don’t forget Grandma and your mother-in-law.

√ Pencil in Father’s Day

Father’s Day can sneak up on you, but not this year. You’re putting Sunday, June 15th on your calendar right now, right?

The other key spring gifting occasions include graduations and weddings.
