For the summertime, you can’t go wrong with gifts filled with supplies to make great drinks. I’ve made baskets for every summer drink I could think of in the past, from sangria, to a moscow mules. But here are a few of my faves I go back to year after year. Whether you’re looking for the perfect “Girlfriend” gift, a congratulatory gift, or even just a nice gesture for that new neighbor, I got you covered. I hope this gives you some inspiration for the next time you gift.
MOSCOW MULE BASKET:
For the hostess who appreciates a classic and refreshing cocktail, a Moscow mule kit is the way to go. To make this basket, I grabbed some vodka, copper mugs, fresh limes and some ginger beer. I don’t know about you, but I love a Moscow mule. This gift is so easy to throw together no matter, the cocktail. Think of your favorite drink to make and go from there.
In my opinion, sangria is THE summertime drink. To make this gift I grabbed some fresh fruit, white wine, and the prettiest glass drink dispenser to hold it all together. This is such a great one if you’re stressing about what to bring. It’s always a hit and may be one of the prettiest gifts to walk in with this summer. Here’s a recipe I like using to make my summer time sangria
When it comes to celebrating a special bond, a gift for your girlfriend is oh so much fun to create. Because, let face it…. you know her best. For this basket, I threw in rosé, syrup, sheet mask, this beautifully branded shampoo & conditioner and all sorts of spa like goodies. The drink syrup inspired the pink theme, but you could pick any color that best fits your bestie and run wild with it. I love gifting a ME TIME theme when it comes to her. I mean, who couldn’t use a night in of pampering.
This one is for the happy couple that deserves a BIG congratulations. Also makes the perfect bridal shower or engagement party gift. My eyes lit up when I spotted this picnic basket cooler. HOW CUTE! My mind went to romantic picnics and a way to inspire the lovebirds to keep on day dating. I grabbed some champagne flutes, fun disco ball, linen napkins, a bottle of the best and created a bouquet of flowers to mimic a wedding day. Of course you could always use their wedding colors when picking your stems. But I gotta say…. this turned out so well and I love it so. Now, I just need someone to get engaged, throw a shower or get married. Dying to bring this one.
