The best Unusual Gift Boxes for Summer

Posted by on

With summer fast approaching and the weather (almost!) heating up, we’re all getting excited for long sunny days on the beach and time spent relaxing in the garden with friends and family.

Here at The Great Gift Company we’ve got a brilliant range of Unusual Gift Boxes for every occasion this summer. From a night in with the girls to that dreamy holiday romance, our gift box hampers cover all bases so you can have the best summer yet!

Here are some examples of how our gift boxes can make those summery moments even more special.

Summer Weddings, Anniversaries or Significant Birthdays

Whether you’re attending your best friend’s wedding, your Grandad’s 75th birthday or your parent’s silver wedding anniversary, the Great Gift Company’s Magnum of Champagne (£85.00) takes the art of Champagne-giving to the next level.

For those that aren’t sure, a magnum is a 1.5 litre bottle that’s equal to 2 bottles. Receiving a Magnum of Champagne is a rare and special occasion in someone’s lifetime, and the Great Gift Company have ensured they offer a high-quality and classic champagne for the perfect toast this summer. It is the gorgeous Autreau Premier Cru Brut NV Champagne which is made predominantly from a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes.

Preparing for a Summer Vacation?

We’ve all got that best girlfriend who is always on a diet and, now you’ve booked that week’s holiday abroad, she’s working on cutting out the carbs for a beach-ready body. The Dieter’s Gift Box (£45.00) is perfect as a funny gift to make light-hearted humour for those of us in search of a bikini-ready body.

The Dieters Gift Box

It contains a half-portion porcelain plate, a half-portion cup and slow food, a three piece stainless steel diet cutlery set (that only just works!) and some sweets (for those low moments!). A great gift to take away on holiday with you or to offer as a present to a friend before they go!

A Girl’s Night In

So we all know that along with Summer, comes along those rainy days and evenings too, so why not opt for the Girls Night In Gift Box for £40.00 (if you’re a lady anyway!) to share with your pals when the sun goes down?

Packed full of goodies that girls can have hours of fun with as they do their hair and nails, this is one of our Unusual Gift Boxes that will also keep our daughters entertained on quieter afternoons and during sleepovers with their friends.

Barbecues, Picnics or Garden Parties

Before you host a social event in your garden, you’ll need to ensure it is well-managed and looking pretty. The Green Fingered Goddess Gift Box (£35.00) contains a jar of fragranced hand wash, cotton gardening gloves with non-slip grips on the inside, a jar of twine and labels, a wooden dibber for planting bulbs and a bar of lightly exfoliating, creamy olive soap.

And For Any Evening Occasion…

If you’re lucky enough to be heading off to one the “events” of “The Season” or perhaps just thinking of taking in a summer concert in the park, bring along our Summer Evening’s Hamper – perfect for the boat, the park, by the riverbank, at a concert and as a special gift, the Summer Evening’s Hamper (£40) will delight all ages. Just add good company and hopefully a dry and warm evening and you can’t go wrong!
