Spring Gifts That Wow

Spring is busting out all over, including at Mrs. Fields. We’ve got some bright, new colorful gifts to put on your radar because you never know when you’re going to need to brighten someone’s day with a happy delivery of gourmet goodness. (Like Mother’s Day? Hint, hint.) Take a look at some of our new favorites.

Welcome Spring Gift Box

Our favorite way to send a little something special is the Welcome Spring Gift Box, containing two delectable frosted cookies and an assortment of our favorite bite-sized best. This is a favorite gift idea for teachers and friends.

Signs of Spring Box

Bright blooms on the outside, and a scrumptious bouquet of your favorite cookies and brownies on the inside is our Signs of Spring Box. Choose from two different assortments and share this gift with someone special. We especially love this gift for Mother’s Day.

Spring is in the Air Planter

We love gifts that can be repurposed like our Spring is in the Air Planter. This bright pink planter arrives with freshly baked cookies, and then be used to plant an herb garden or an orchid. This is a chic, delicious gift for that chic friend who needs a pick-me-up.

Flower Power Tower

Big and bold and ready to please, our Flower Power Tower packs a lot of wow for any crowd. Each layer contains the best of our best, cookies, brownies and frosted cookies in either our original or bite-sized varieties. This gift is our favorite way to turn any occasion into an instant party.

Thanks a Million

Give Thanks Tin

Expressing thanks is something we probably all value, but don’t always know how to implement. With over 35 years in the gifting business, we have some ideas on the subject. Here’s a primer on becoming a better thank-er. (No need to thank us for it!)

  • Gratitude is a renewable resource. The more you give thanks to people around you, the more grateful you feel, and in turn, the more people want to do kind and helpful things. Challenge yourself to thank at least three people in the next hour and see what happens.
  • Notice the little things. Going hand-in-hand with the previous challenge, begin noticing the small ways in which the people around you excel. You’ll be amazed at what you see.
  • Make it personal and sincere. An under-the-breath “thanks” doesn’t count for much, so make it a point to be both personal and sincere. In person, make eye contact and thank the person specifically for what you appreciate. Otherwise, pick up the phone and call or send a thoughtful text or email.
  • Think about the thankless jobs. From the person who cleans the office after hours to the school bus driver, there are many people who get overlooked for a job well done. It’s not intentional, of course, but out of sight often means out of mind. Take some time to thank one of them.
  • Report to a supervisor. Were you wowed by someone in a professional setting? In addition to expressing your thanks, contact their manager to let them know.
  • Keep thank you notes on hand. Jimmy Fallon takes time every week to jot down some thank you notes and drop them in the mail, and so should you. Having the cards on hand means you can write that note as soon as you think of it.
  • Reward the extra mile. When someone has gone above and beyond on your behalf, it’s always a good idea to say thanks with a gift. Of course, our suggestion is always a surprise delivery of freshly baked cookies and brownies with an enclosed gift message. It’s a thank you gift idea that feels generous without being awkwardly over-the-top.
  • It’s never too late. There is no expiration date on thank you’s, so if you’re plagued with regret for failing to acknowledge something in the past, do something about it today.

And just in case you’re looking for some more gift suggestions, here are some of our favorites:
