Curated Boston Inspired Gift Guide: Spring Holidays Edition

With spring holidays like Easter & Passover around the corner, we’re all wondering how to make it feel special for our loved ones. The Simplified team has teamed up with some of our favorite local businesses to make this task as easy as possible for you.

Beacon Hill Chocolates

Favorite local chocolatier, Beacon Hill Chocolates, has an array of Easter chocolates that will make someone of any age squeal with joy. With options ranging from vintage chocolate bars and mouse shaped truffles to chocolate carrots and assorted Easter collections – we know anything you pick from here to fill an Easter basket will be met with pure joy.

Sprig & Vine

Add some flavor to your Easter or Passover meal with a 4-pack sampler from Sprig & Vine. Sampler packs to choose from include: Popular Pairings, Freshest Varietal Sampler, Seasonal Pairings and Balsamic Sampler. This is a great way to test and taste new flavors!


South End favorite, Tadpole, creates amazing gift baskets for babies. Each basket starts with a storage container that’s filled with some of their best gift items. Tell them the child’s gender, the gift basket size and they’ll take care of the rest.

Brookline Booksmith

Our favorite Brookline Booksmith’s Giftsmith has carefully curated items  for everyone in your life. Our favorites for the spring holidays are the hand painted ceramic mugs and cotton flour sack dish towels.

Grandma’s Chicken Soup

Grandmas Chicken Soup is full of delicious eats. Gift someone one of their specialty meals and treats. Our favorites include the Deluxe Passover Meal, Chocolate Drizzled Matzo, and Easter Mac Delight.

Mint Julep

We can always count on Mint Julep to brighten our days. We’re sure that any of these picks will do the same for someone else. Our top picks include the Twiggy Italian Leather Purse (in black or white), the Charli Shirt in White Daisy, Shirbori Tie Dye Scarfs, and the Small Painted Floral Studs.
