Summer Gift Ideas Under $25

From backyard barbecues to sandy beach parties, it is easy to find your calendar chock full of sun-filled socializing.  As Jennifer Adams states, it is a good idea to have a few gift bags on hand for hosts or unexpected summer celebrations. Here are a few ideas for under $25:

1) For the Bartender
Fill a decorative vase or container, such as a lantern designed to hold a candle, with items for a summer cocktail mixer. Be sure to include fun conversation napkins, decorative straws, produce masher and margarita mix.

2) For the Movers
A great housewarming gift idea is to fill a large round glass canister, which can later be re-purposed into a cookie jar or pantry storage container, with various household products your friend or family member may need once they move in.  These helpful items can include a couple of sponges, a tape measure, Crazy Glue, a small screwdriver and even hand sanitizer.

3) For the College Student
Creating a graduation gift or a care package for the student in your life is easy and simple to do but comes in handy at the dorms. Select a basket that could be used as a shower caddy and fill it with supplies and fun items for the room.  Some ideas include instant noodles, journal, room deodorizing spray, shower slippers, highlights and a coffee mug.

4) For the Grill Master
One can't go wrong with a barbecue gift basket. Everyone has a friend or family member who enjoys grilling. Whether it is by a lake, in the backyard or at a sporting event, this gift basket idea is great for men and women. Simply place some of your favorite barbecue accessories such as tongs, an apron, seasonings and barbecue sauce (homemade?) inside a vegetable grilling tray.

5) Summer Girlfriend Gifts
Whether it is as a thank you or just for fun, creating a few gift bags for your close girlfriends is a thoughtful and fun idea. Using a beach-friendly bag, fill it with spray-on sunscreen, a floppy sun hat, a water bottle and their favorite magazine for some downtime at the beach or poolside with friends.

The key is to keep an eye out at the grocery store or when you visit a discount outlet and purchase the items as you come across them.  This will save you the time and energy of trying to incorporate a store run into your busy day for the upcoming event.

Have a great summer!
