A Summer Gift Guide

A Summer Gift Guide

Are you going to a party soon? A baby shower, a friend’s birthday, maybe a graduation? Are you looking for the perfect present? Do you need help? Indeed, how hard it is to find something cool and useful in summer? I mean they probably already have everything you might have thought about until now. Yet, we can assure you, they’ll have nothing from the list below!

summer gift guide

1. L’Occitane Gift Sets | L’Occitane – from £6.30*
Each season has its characteristics: scent, atmosphere, feeling, dangers for you skin. The cold in winter makes your skin dry and super sensible. The heat of summer dehydrates it. Skin care is something permanent and you need the right products for the right season. Or you can help a friend get the rights products by gifting them what they need: hand cream, perfume, soap, hydrating cream, etc. And L’Occitane as such a massive choice of gift set, you’ll sur find something for your friend and even something to treat yourself!

2. Ice Cream Maker | Mine & Yours – £40
You would not be eating ice cream in winter, would you? Or maybe. But summer is still better for that. However, how annoying is it to go out to the shop to get ice cream? So annoying, right?! So what about making your own ice cream at home? Yes, you read right! An ice cream maker makes a perfect summer gift because it’s the perfect season but also because you’ll instantly become the most loved person around! Such a great idea! And how convenient to have ice cream whenever you want!

3. Sunnylife Golden Swan Pool Float | Urban Outfitters – £58
We don’t know about you, but we have been seeing giant floats all over the internet. Mermaid tails, unicorns, cacti, flamingos, etc. They are everywhere and so Instagrammable! They also make pool parties amazing! Can you imagine yourself, lying on this giant golden swan flamingo, sunglasses on and a cocktail in your hand? How cool is that picture? Super cool, right?! A giant float is a perfect present that will make you from pool to cool!

4. Papyrus Combi Zèbre Fluo Sandals | K Jacques St-Tropez – €265
How cute are they? No, really?! Neon colors are perfect for spring and summer. They are so bright and really stands out. As for the zebra print, do we really need to say that animal print are a must and super fashionable? No, I agree! K Jacques is a French brand that makes all their shoes by hand, one at a time and in France. Hence the price. However, their products are amazing quality! Indeed, I have had another pair of sandals for five years and they still look really good! I think it’s an worthy investment and a great graduation or birthday present!

5. Instax Share Photo Printer | Fujifilm – £149
We’ve all gone crazy about Instax when they came out. Pastel colors, small, so cute and instagrammable, they quickly became a must for any bloggers worth the name. Figure of speech of course. They are cool but your iPhone works too! And how cool is it to be able to print your photo from your phone right after you took them? And take a picture of your pictures for Instagram if you feel like it? So handy! We have nothing more to say!

Did you like our summer gift guide? Anything you would like to get right now? For a friend of course. But you can also treat yourself, because we all need ice cream in our life! Or a giant float! If you’re looking for a present, we hope we helped you find the perfect one!

Thank you for reading. We hope you liked this post!

See you soon,

    I really need to get myself an inflatable swan float! It looks like so much fun, not to mention all the cool photos you can take with it 🙂

  7. June 18, 2017 / 7:25 pm

    This is such an amazing selection…though I kind of want them all for myself rather than to give away! I really want an ice cream maker!

    I love these ideas and how it’s summer themed! I’m never a good gift giving person, I usually go for money or a gift card, something simple but it’s nice to put thoughts into gifts! Great post! 🙂

  9. June 18, 2017 / 7:40 pm

    OBSESSED with your photography…absolutely gorgeous! And these are some great gift ideas 🙂 xx

    Omg yesss that golden swan! So extra for summer I love it haha! And I’ve wanted to get my hands on one of the instaxs for ages!

  11. June 18, 2017 / 8:01 pm

    I’m all for the Ice Cream Maker! (Although I will admit that the blow up swan slightly scares me..)

  12. June 18, 2017 / 8:29 pm

    Oh, I love a gift guide. So many quirky products from retailers I may not have gone to for ages. Good one!

    That giant flamingo pool float is amazing! Just wish I had a pool to use it in ;). And I’d love to have that cute little ice cream maker in my kitchen!


  16. June 19, 2017 / 4:10 pm

    The L’Occitane gift set downs amazing. An Ice-cream makeup sounds divine as well. I don’t have many events coming up but it is my graduation soon. Maybe I could sneakily ask about these for presents for myself rather than purchasing for others haha. Good choices!

    I love loccitane goodies! I’ve been using a foot cream from them and it’s incredible!
    The pool float is the coolest! Wish I had a pool to justify buying it!

    Oh my gosh that swan float is glorious!

  19. June 19, 2017 / 4:27 pm

    I would love an ice cream maker!! I’ve made ice cream before without but it’s a pain because you have to keep getting it out the freezer to stir it up.

    My birthdays this summer, I’m hoping for some clip on camera lenses for my iPhone. They look so cool.

  20. June 19, 2017 / 6:04 pm

    Who doesn’t want a swan float. 😀 Ice cream maker also looks so good!

  21. June 19, 2017 / 7:15 pm

    I would love that little photo printer, so much easier than ordering them online and waiting!

  22. June 19, 2017 / 8:13 pm

    i am literally obsessed with the fun rafts that are out this year – i got my niece a pink swan float as a gift & she looooooved it!

  23. June 20, 2017 / 9:00 am

    Great gift suggestions! I always struggle so much to find lovely gifts. L’Occitane is always a sure bet, but I love the fluorescent sandals and the golden swan too!

    You have such cute things here. I am pretty sure that I have to HAVE that pool float!!

  25. June 20, 2017 / 11:17 am

    I love the swan pool floats! So much fun and a great gift for someone who spends a lot of time at the pool or beach.

  26. June 20, 2017 / 1:43 pm

    ANdddddd I need the swan. Yep! lol

  27. June 20, 2017 / 2:07 pm

    Swan pool floats must be in this summer! I have seen so many photos and post about them! This is a great list!

  28. June 20, 2017 / 4:27 pm

    This is a great gift guide! I laughed at the flamingo,but I would totally use it!

  29. June 20, 2017 / 4:47 pm

    What a great gift guide, I absolutely love the pool float and I could definitely do with an ice cream maker right now!

  30. June 20, 2017 / 5:04 pm

    Ahh, I am loving all of the adorable huge pool floats this year! The gold swan you have here is great and I have also seen a unicorn one that I just love!

  31. June 20, 2017 / 5:17 pm

    What a fantastic list of summer gifts for everyone! I have just started collecting pool inflatables – so far I have a giant pink flamingo and a gorgeous pegasus. I would love to add that beautiful gold swan to my own birthday wish list! And an ice cream maker would definitely be fun, especially on these hot days in sunny California. 🙂

  32. June 20, 2017 / 5:20 pm

    Those sandals are so cute! Shame my upcoming trip is with hand luggage only, not leaving me with much space for new shoes :'( x

  33. June 20, 2017 / 6:05 pm

    Awesome ideas! I wish my birthday was in the summer, not November! 🙈

  34. June 20, 2017 / 6:16 pm

    Amazing gift ideas and I love that they all vary in prices. I just wish it was warm enough where I live to have an ice cream maker and an inflatable swan.

  35. June 20, 2017 / 6:20 pm

    These are great ideas! My sister and cousin both have summer birthdays and I know they would love the Instax Share Photo Printer! I would personally love the ice cream maker. I haven’t had homemade ice cream in years!

  36. June 20, 2017 / 6:22 pm

    Ah this is such a good gift guide! I want the gold swan!

  37. June 20, 2017 / 6:24 pm

    These are some great ideas, definitely loving the pool float, it seems to be the must-have this summer. Making appearances on social media, editorials and music videos. If only I had a pool to use the floaty in, I would buy it in a heartbeat.


  38. June 20, 2017 / 6:26 pm

    That swan swim float is a must! This is a great post, so many ideas for a different occasion / person! The ice cream maker is a quirky lil thing too! I wouldn’t have thought to gift someone that! x

  39. June 20, 2017 / 6:29 pm

    What a great gift guide! I am loving those floats, they really are something! The ice cream maker is also amazing, I need to get me one of those!

  43. June 20, 2017 / 6:51 pm

    Great ideas but love the ice cream maker. Already feel like I want to buy it!

  44. June 20, 2017 / 7:00 pm

    What lovely ideas – especially if someone has a summer birthday! I think that ice cream maker has my name on it tbh …

  45. June 20, 2017 / 7:03 pm

    Never mind a gift guide, I’m gonna be buying all these things for myself, especially that gold swan!! 😍

  46. June 20, 2017 / 7:06 pm

    These are great gift ideas! I didn’t know they had gold rubber swans, that’s my fave. Thanks for this I’m going to send around to my friends who need ideas

  47. June 20, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    That Sunnylife Golden Swan Pool Float is definitely a must have! I bet my kids would LOVE that!

  48. June 20, 2017 / 7:21 pm

    Such great ideas! Definitely gonna have to use one of these for graduation party season!

  49. June 20, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    These are such fun ideas for summer gifts! I especially love the sandals, but I’m pretty sure my daughters would go for the ice cream maker!

  50. June 20, 2017 / 7:49 pm

    Well these are so gorgeous that I’m seriously considering buying myself a little present as sad as that sounds 😂Great blog post!

  51. June 20, 2017 / 7:59 pm

    I wouldn’t re-gift 2 and 5, ha! So refreshing to see UK prices, too.

  52. June 20, 2017 / 8:02 pm

    That golden swan float is too funny! I think that having an ice cream maker would be totally fun.

  53. June 20, 2017 / 8:37 pm

    Can I have everything in this blog post. Some really great ideas here. I received the L’Occitane set from my future mother in law for last Christmas and I loveeeeedddd it 😍

  54. June 20, 2017 / 9:30 pm

    Love, love, love all of these gifts. Each one is special and I would like to be the lucky person on the receiving end!

  55. June 20, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    The gift set with perfume, hand cream, soap, etc. would be my choice of a gift to get for someone. It does have great variety!

  56. June 20, 2017 / 10:56 pm

    K Jacques sandals are just the best, I;ve just dug out my pair, so that would be my perfect gift.

  57. June 20, 2017 / 11:50 pm

    The huge swan floatie is an eccentric gift and I love It! The sandals caught my eye too, but something about the floatie keeps calling me. 😁

  58. June 20, 2017 / 11:55 pm

    I do wonder if that gold swan will fit nicely in my tub! And I must own that ice cream maker! I would make ice cream all year!

  59. June 21, 2017 / 12:18 am

    I feel like I NEED that ice cream maker. Plus that gold pool float would be fabulous.

  68. June 21, 2017 / 12:33 pm

    Love the inflatable! Love the sandles too. I have an ice cream maker at home but to be honest, I can’t use it. I tried once and it turned out gross haha xx

  69. June 21, 2017 / 2:17 pm

    Heck yes to the glam pool float! These are my go-to summer party gift, they are so much fun!

  70. June 21, 2017 / 2:31 pm

    Yes I am all for those big floaties! I currently have a flamingo and a swan

  71. June 21, 2017 / 4:40 pm

    My son picked out a dragon instead of the swan but same concept. I LOVE the idea of a ice cream maker never though of that!

  72. June 21, 2017 / 5:36 pm

    The ice cream maker really looks very cool. I need to get a new one myself very soon. I know my daughter would love making homemade ice cream.

  73. June 21, 2017 / 8:04 pm

    Complete gift porn! All the pretty things, and I want them all! Never mind gifts for other people, this will be “To me, love me x”. Lovely post! Ashley x

  74. June 21, 2017 / 9:15 pm

    Nothing like a good book to read in the summer. I just read The Bomb Life by Claire Sulmers. It’s soooo good!

  75. June 22, 2017 / 5:36 pm

    I would love those sandals, they would literally go with anything you wear with denims
