Though summer is not a very welcome season in the East, it is eagerly awaited in the West where summer is the time when friends and family members get together for parties, picnics and barbeques. Summer is the time for the westerners to come out of their homes and enjoy the warmth of the sun by engaging in some outdoor activities. It is the time for games, for fun and for food. And when there is so much celebration in the air, gifts have to follow. Though gift shops provide us with a variety of options and ideas for gifts these days, it is because of the too many options that zeroing down on a particular gift gets difficult. An innovative way of gifting is the gift basket. A gift basket includes items for different members of a family, young and adults, suitable for a particular occasion. There is also scope to add a personal touch to the summer gift baskets that you have designed. Here are some ideas of gift baskets for summer:
Gift Baskets For Summer
Picnic Gift Basket
Everybody loves to go for a picnic during the summer season. Thus, a picnic gift basket is always welcome. You can arrange the gift basket with items required during a picnic like cutlery, napkins, tablecloth and paper plates or food items like bread and cheese, sausages and chocolates.
Fishing Gift Basket
Summer is the time when you will feel like engaging in some outdoor activities. Fishing is a great pastime during the summers. Not only does it allow you to enjoy the beautiful sun, it also does not leave you too sweaty or dry in the summer heat. Fishing is a very good way to relax and savor the pleasant weather. You can include necessary fishing objects in a fishing gift basket, with some snacks which the person can enjoy.
Barbeque Gift Basket
Summer is also the time for barbeques. You can include barbeque items such as sausages and an assortment of sauces along with barbeque tools like skewers and spatulas. Innovative ideas include a bottle of beer or wine along with a cookbook especially for barbeques.
Beach Gift Basket
If it is summer, it is very natural for a person to head to the beach to get the summer tan. Therefore, a beach gift basket will be loved by one and all. This type of basket must include sunscreens, hats, beach slippers, towel and so on. You may also include a pair of sunglasses and some dry snacks.
Children’s Gift Basket
Gift baskets which are made only for children should obviously contain items that they can play when outside. A frisbee is a must because summers mean trips to the beach. You can include a bubble can as children love making bubbles. For girls, you can choose between a teddy and a doll. And of course, do not forget the chocolates.
Gift baskets For Loved Ones
If you are presenting a gift basket to your partner, include items of his/her preference. Make sure to tie a red ribbon around the gift items to incorporate the romantic factor. A gift basket as an anniversary gift may include a bottle of wine, chocolates, margarita glasses along with a card.
