The summer months bring plenty of reasons for a birthday boy/girl to celebrate. It’s the season to be out and about or, if you want to avoid the hot and dry conditions, stay indoors for a party. With a summer birthday hamper, you have a wide range of gift ideas to choose from. Here are a few to try:
Protective and nourishing products such as facial moisturizers, lotions, sunscreen, lip balms, and facial mists are perfect for a summer season birthday hamper. These products are great for birthday celebrants who like to go to the beach or for hikes because they offer protection for the skin, which means no more sunburns, dryness, or itchy, flaky spots.
Beach (or Pool) Bum
Beat the stifling summer heat with a hamper of items that are perfect for a day at the beach or at the pool. Pack the hamper with a bottle of sunscreen, wet tissues, a waterproof purse to hold essentials, a hairbrush, a water bottle, a scarf, and a wide-brimmed sun hat. And while you’re at it, why not throw in a cute inflatable?
Autumn is the season of color and birthdays that fall within these months will be so much better with bursts of color and celebration. Try these gift hamper ideas for the perfect giveaway:
Cheese and Wine
For some reason, autumn is the season to wine and dine… on cheese. This perfect of pairs will be much appreciated when given on a birthday and can be enjoyed with company or all on the birthday celebrant’s own. Better yet, there are hundreds of combinations to choose from.
Food, Glorious Food
Any birthday celebrant who gets a gift hamper filled to the brim with goodies will have one more reason to smile. Consider autumn-themed food such as candied or caramel apples, fancy pumpkin pies, spiced pumpkin cheesecakes, and chocolate-covered berries and/or nuts.
For a winter birthday, consider items that promote slowing down and relaxation. After all, winter is the time of rest and hibernation, at least for many creatures. Even if your recipient is the type who’s always on the go, they still could use some time for self-care. Here are recommended products to try:
Put together a birthday gift hamper that promotes self-care. A pack of home spa essentials will do nicely and better yet, will be good enough to last until spring. Consider a hamper with items such as salt or sugar scrubs, bath bombs, body oil, body brush with natural bristles, handcrafted soap, body butter, and hand balm.
The type of home spa items you can include will differ widely, depending on your personal choice and on the preferences of your recipient. For example, you could put together a hamper of the most popular products or go for an all-natural or organic option. You could even go with a theme, such as a color, scent or an ingredient. An all-lavender hamper or citrus-themed gift pack will be a nice touch.
One can never go wrong with tea. Tea is such a nurturing, calming, and tasty beverage that it remains the world’s favorite drink. With tea, there are literally thousands of choices across different brands. If you prefer, you could even choose loose-leaf tea instead of pre-packed bags. With tea, you could choose to put together a hamper of all-time favorites or a gourmet pack. You could even have a hamper prepared composed of specific blends or flower-based bags or leaves.
Spring is the season of rebirth and new inspiration. This is the time of awakening and discovery. It is the best time to give a gift that signifies a new beginning or a fresh start. Here are our recommendations for the perfect spring-themed birthday hamper:
Plant and Flower Seeds
If your recipient is a gardening enthusiast or a beginner green thumb, why not give a gift that lets them stay close to Nature? A gift hamper filled with carefully chosen seeds will be a great way to please that special person. Choose from flower seeds, herbs, or vegetables, or a combination of all three if your recipient is inclined to taking care of different plants. Just note the micro-climate in their location so you only give a gift that has the most likelihood of growing.
Aside from seeds, consider giving a gift of bulbs. Many flowers (or herbs) grow from a bulb. These include allium, daffodil, hyacinth, scilla, Dutch iris, tulip, amaryllis, and of course, lilies. Bulbs, as long as they are healthy, are surprisingly easy to grow and care for, given the right conditions.
If you prefer, why not offer a gift of gardening tools? Anyone who spends hours in the garden will tell you that tools do get worn out. Consider organizing a hamper made of pruning shears, gardening gloves, shovel, a trowel, a fork, and a handy water can. Throw in a few seed packets and you have one perfect birthday gift hamper.
For cheese lovers, nothing makes a birthday that much more special than when it comes with cheese… and plenty of it. Cheese is the type of gift that cannot fail especially when given to huge fans of its milky-tart goodness. It is also an all-season gift, perfect for any month of the year. Cheese can be served for any occasion as well, whether it’s a special event or just one of those days when one feels the need to savor its goodness. For a hamper, consider putting together a hamper filled with all-time hits such as cheddar, Swis, parmesan, camambert, brie, and mozzarella. Or, go for gourmet and gift the lucky birthday celebrant with blue cheese such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Stilton, Gruyere, gouda, mimolette, bleu d’Auvergne, and burrata.
