Costco shoppers can rely on specific products to always be on hand year-round, from the retailer’s popular rotisserie chicken to its Kirkland signature paper products.

But the beloved wholesale club also has a seasonally changing lineup of products, and springtime is no exception.

Whether you are looking ahead to spring gardening or need a gift for a soon-to-be-graduate, Costco offers a surprisingly wide array of goods that are handy during the spring. Some are available online only, while others you will find in warehouses as well.

Here’s a look at some of the most indispensable products at Costco this time of year.

Easter baskets

Peter Cottontail will be hopping down the bunny trail on March 31 this year, so those who celebrate the day will want to have their Easter baskets ready.

Costco sells several prepackaged baskets, including the chocolate-filled Hebert classic gourmet Easter basket and another Easter basket overflowing with Ghirardelli chocolates.

If the Easter bunny in your home prefers to fill their own baskets, they can stuff it with Easter egg hot chocolate bombs, Kinder Joy eggs or other sweets and treats.

Spring flowers

April showers bring May flowers, but you don’t need to wait until May to brighten up your home with spring blooms. Costco sells bouquets, floral centerpieces, wedding and event flowers and more.

Easter-specific bouquets include the Easter Egg Stravaganza and the Joyful Bunny Basket, or you could simply celebrate spring with many of their other floral options.

Spring break doesn’t just have to mean wild beach parties. Families traveling for spring break can check out the packages and other travel options you can book through Costco Travel.

As we detail in “7 Things You Didn’t Know About Costco Travel,” the offerings include theme park deals, luxury vacations, and Kirkland Signature packages put together only for Costco members.

With winter on its way out, it’s time to start thinking about freshening up with spring-cleaning. Maybe that means giving the bathrooms a good scrub, or replacing that battered old vacuum cleaner with one that actually works.

Costco is the place to go to stock up on household cleaning supplies and a surprisingly wide array of floor care devices.

Gardening supplies

In snow-covered states, green thumbs have been in hibernation. But it’s finally time to begin thinking about planning and planting spring and summer gardens, from vegetables to flowers.

Hand tools, planters and even raised garden beds are among the types of gardening supplies Costco sells.

Outdoor plants and trees

Options include restaurant gift cards, gift baskets, jewelry, and just about anything a grad’s first apartment might need – such as small appliances and cookware. Or you can give the gift of Costco membership.
