It’s summertime! Other than ice cream, barbecues, and fireworks, summer also means baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, birthday parties, etc. If your loved ones are anything like mine, people tend to celebrate these occasions more in the summertime when temperatures are more pleasant and time is more flexible with vacations and kids out of school.
This means summertime is busy. So when faced with a special occasion requiring a gift, what to give? Pressed for time, but tired of giving gift cards? Make your own gift basket! Gift baskets are a fun way to personalize gift-giving that you can make appropriate for any age. You can generally keep them to under $50, too. Purchase a basket and your desired products online or in your travels to save time, and fill it with the following things:
(1) Baby shower / baby welcome / gender reveal / first-year-old birthday gift basket.
Gift ideas: Pacifiers, bibs, diapers, onesies, oral care products, etc.
(2) Bridal shower / bachelorette party / self-care gift basket.
Gift ideas: Face mask, brush (everyone can replace theirs!), travel-size blow dryer or styling products, hair and skin care products, make up, etc.
(3) Summer-themed gift basket.
Gift ideas: A natural, organic suntan lotion, beach towel, fashionable sun hat, trendy sandals, koozie for an individual drink, etc.
Have fun mixing and matching products that you think your gift recipients would love!
