Ah, summer! The time for pool parties, beach days, playing in the yard, camping and cooking out. With all of those summer activities, creating a summer-themed gift basket might sound harder than it is. The key is to pick one main summer activity and choose items for your basket based on that activity. Don't forget to throw in some non-melty snacks into each basket such as chips, crackers and even the classic Cracker Jacks for a summer gift no one will ever forget.
Beachy Basket - A great beachy basket would have everything needed for a fun day at the beach. Include a beach towel or beach blanket, sunscreen, flip flops, sunglasses and a bucket and shovel set for digging up shells and shark's teeth. Add an insulated drink cup to stay hydrated and you have a basket worthy of a day at the beach.
Pool Party Basket - Few things scream summer like a great pool party. Include a pool float, a pool noodle, swim goggles, diving sticks, a pool net and a beach ball. Toss in a case of drink boxes with some fun snacks like pretzels and chips and you have all the pool party essentials covered!
Getting Campy Basket - For those who love to camp, start with a cooler and load it up with camping goodies. Add bug spray, a travel pillow, a sleeping bag, fishing lures, skewers for roasting marshmallows and include all of the ingredients for making s'mores around the fire. Way to get campy!
Grill Master Basket - This basket is great for the men in your life because what man doesn't love being master of the grill? Include a variety of grilling seasoning blends, grilling utensils set, skewers, outdoor tablecloth, BBQ apron and a great grilling cookbook with recipes to keep him busy at the grill all summer long.
Gardener's Delight Basket - Gardeners love summer! It's a great time to get their hands in the soil and admire their planting handiwork. For this basket, include gardening gloves, seeds for herbs or fast-growing summer flowers, a watering can, trowel and gardening tools and a selection of cute plant pots to show off the products of their green thumb!
Backyard Fun Basket - Think of your favorite things from childhood backyard playtime when creating this basket. Include popsicle molds, colorful wind chimes, a picnic blanket and fun yard games. Go with bocce ball, a soccer ball, cornhole and even indoor games that need lots of room such as Twister. Toss in some snacks and you have a perfect basket for backyard fun.
Gifting during the summer doesn't have to be complicated! Simply choose an activity your friend or loved one enjoys and build a basket around their favorite summer activity.
