Summer Gift Guide

We’re definitely heading well into summer now, and so I figured what better way to celebrate than a Summer Gift Guide! Summer is generally a pretty busy time for me gift-giving wise and I always struggle to find the perfect gift, so if you’re like me then hopefully this guide will help you out!

The first gift idea is this stunning british perfume* from Clive Christian. Not only are the bottles exquisite, but the brand also uses some of the finest and rarest ingredients, so this would be a luxurious and highly appreciated gift for anyone. There are many perfumes to choose from, as well as having a feminine and masculine version of each scent, so you can easily get the perfect perfume for the lucky recipient. It’s sure to be a showstopper gift!

We all know somebody obsessed with Lush, so this gift set would make the perfect present for them! Sticking to a summer theme, this set includes a lot of citrus and sea salt products that are sure to smell amazing. Plus the packaging is super cute!

Books are an easy and safe gift that works for almost everybody, and this is easily one of my favourite books I’ve read recently. It’s the fictional story of a girl who joins a Manson-like cult for the summer, it’s absolutely incredible and I couldn’t put it down! It’s the perfect book for a summertime read, and would make an excellent gift for anyone about to travel.

For me, Mojitos are the perfect summer drink, so I would love to receive a Mojito Kit like this as a gift! Not only does this teach you how to make a traditional Mojito, but it also has recipes for a Bolivian Mojito and a Mint Julep! This would be an extra fun gift for a BBQ and would be a great opportunity for lots of guests to get involved.

Although a candle may seem like the stereotypical ‘I don’t know what you like so I just got you this’ sort of gift, this is not the case if the candle is Diptyque. This would make for the most awesome gift to someone who loves interior design and is obsessed with that clean, white aesthetic (a.k.a any blogger ever), or somebody who just straight up loves candles! The Figuier scent (yeah, I don’t know how to pronounce it either) is also supposed to be the best for summer as it’s delicate fig scent is fresh and fruity.

Who doesn’t love a good pool float? This would be great for kids and adults alike (because it seems like the entire world is currently obsessed with unicorns), and would be so cool to have at pool parties. It’s also another great gift to give to someone who is just about to go on holiday, as long as they don’t mind inflating it when they get there!

This is the perfect gift for any makeup addict like myself, and it includes such a great range of products! Labelled the Summer Goddess Collection (and rightly so), this set includes the famous Laura Geller Spackle Primer, a Baked Bronzer, a mascara and a matte liquid lip in a beautiful mauve-nude shade. Laura Geller’s products are fantastic, so this set is sure to please.

Everyone loves a pair of sunnies, and you can now customise your own pair on the Ray Ban website! From choosing the style and colour of the frames and lenses to picking out the perfect case – you can even engrave the case and temple tips – there are so many options to create a completely unique pair! This would make a perfect gift for a sunglasses addict, and is an awesome way to create the perfect pair of one-of-a-kind sunglasses for that special person. I think this gift would definitely be a crowd-pleaser!


So that’s my entire Summer Gift Guide. I really hope you enjoyed this post and that this helped you find the perfect gift for somebody! Let me know in the comments what your perfect summer gift would be. See you next time,
