I don’t know about you, but my calendar is full of summer birthdays! Here are a few gift ideas to help you cross some of those birthdays off your “to do” list.
I am a big fan of ceramics, as you might have noticed. I love to have little bowls scattered around the house to collect keys and jewelry. This sweet little bowl by Village Clayworks is the perfect size to catch various bibelots and looks fresh and summery at the same time. I’m sure anyone on your gift list would be pleased to have these little ladybugs in their home.
Another lovely gift is this monogrammed stationary set by Turtle Papers. Not only would this make a thoughtful gift, but it also encourages friends and family to keep in touch.
I defy you to find a gift more cheery than this wonderful platter by Romy and Clare Designs. A perfect gift for someone who entertains, this platter is sure to keep both the recipient and their guests smiling with its whimsical pattern and sunny colors.
A simple and inexpensive gift, the fabulous prints of Matou en Peluche would make a pretty addition to anyone’s home. And, if sweet little birdies aren’t your thing, there are a variety of Art Deco and retro inspired designs in the Matou en Peluche shop.
Finding gifts for the important men in our lives can often be tough, but there are a variety of wonderful handmade gifts that any man would covet, including this ring by Andes Cruz Designs. A perfect blend of masculinity and style, this ring would easily work for even the most rugged of men.
Another great idea for the guys is this jellyfish tie from Jes Switaj. I love the variety of colors that this tie comes in and the bold graphic print will make the wearer stand out, in the best way possible.
With these ideas as a jumping off point, you are sure to get your summer birthday shopping done in no time. Next week, we will talk about how to get ready for your Fourth of July festivities. I’ll see you then!
