Figi’s Top 10 Springtime Sweets & Candy Gifts – Pt. 1

Here at Figi’s we’ve noticed that every season has its own unique flavors. Winter is a time full of peppermints and licorice – sticky sweets that make you feel warm and mark the onset of the holiday season. Late winter and early spring, from Valentine’s Day through Easter, is all about chocolate – a delicious treat full of natural compounds that are proven to elevate your mood, leaving you feeling happy and loved.

As we move further into spring and welcome the return of warmer weather, a new palette of tastes is ready to be enjoyed. With so many citrus fruits harvested in spring, it’s little wonder that the tasty theme this time of year is a refreshing mix of key lime, lemon, orange, & many more of your favorite flavors.

With this in mind, we set out to create the best candy gifts and sweets possible that capture the spirit of Spring. Check out the first of our Top 10 Gifts this season, and share if you’ve enjoyed a similar gift from Figi’s!

Choosing the Best Birthday Gift Baskets

Birthday Wishes Gift Basket | Figi'sBirthdays will always hold a special place in our hearts and minds as a time to celebrate the good things in life. Whether you like to plan an adventure every year or just want to relax and take things easy, one thing is certain; any good birthday involves doing what you love, but it’s the little things like hearing from old friends, wishes coming true, and particularly thoughtful gifts that can take any good birthday and turn it into a great one. 

That’s why we’ve put together some of our favorite birthday gift baskets this year to help you celebrate every special day with your family and friends.

Favorite foods

California Pistachios Birthday Basket | Figi'sIf you’re struggling to think of the best gift you can give someone on their birthday, take a moment to think about their favorite foods. What do they like to eat? Are they a certified carnivore with fire-hardened grilling tools? Do they love gourmet cupcakes with real, buttercream frosting? Maybe you always see them with a bag of California Pistachios close by? Whatever it is, these clues will help you find a gift that satisfies their craving for their favorite things. Send their favorite foods with our nation-wide basket delivery service and your birthday basket is sure to be remembered even after the treats have gone!

Personalized Messages

Personalized Birthday Gift Baskets | Figi'sThere’s a reason candles and lotion feel a little cliché when they’re given as birthday presents – they aren’t personal! They have all the trappings of a gift, but not the sentiment that says you love who this person is and you want them to have their favorite things on their birthday. That’s why Figi’s helps you personalize gift baskets for your family and friends, so your best wishes are clear as day!

Birthday Petit Fours

Birthday Petit Fours | Figi'sSome of the best gifts are the kind you can eat and the kind you can share. Birthday petit fours combine the best of both worlds with bite size morsels of rich, moist cake and buttercreme fruit filling boxed up and ready to enjoy together. They’re perfect for birthday parties and get-togethers, or you can always keep them safe for a daily indulgence after your birthday!

Do you have a favorite birthday treat you look forward to every year? Let us know in the comments – we’re always on the lookout for great ideas!
