6 Fun Summer Gift Basket Ideas for Employees

Gifts baskets are the perfect way to welcome in summer at work. However, putting together a cohesive gift basket full of things that people actually want — but that are still on theme — can be a little tricky. To help you out, we’ve rounded up six of our favorite summer gift basket ideas that recipients will love:

1. Klean Kanteen® Vacuum Insulated Loop Cap Water Bottle – 20 oz.

Staying hydrated during the summer is absolutely essential, and the water bottle to have is the ​​Klean Kanteen® 20 oz. Vacuum Insulated Loop Cap Water Bottle. It’s made of 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel, which means a) there will be no flavor transfer, and b) it will last forever. The double wall insulation keeps beverages cold up to 24 hours and hot up to 12 hours. The stainless steel finish results in a sweat-free, durable grip finish. Production time varies from three to five weeks, so reach out now if you want to include a ​​Klean Kanteen® in your summer gift basket!

2. Plush Beach Towel – 40″ x 60″

You absolutely can’t go wrong with adding a beach towel to your summer gift basket. We love the Monto Carlo for its classy chevron design, which comes in three different colors on a white background. The towel is made of extra thick, absorbent terry cloth and comes in full-sized dimensions of 40″x60″. The Monto Carlo towel leaves a generous blank space to screen print your logo so everyone will see it whenever your recipients hit the beach or pool.

Bottle Opener Malibu Sunglasses

3. Bottle Opener Sunglasses

There’s nothing worse than trying to kick back with a nice cold beverage at the lake or the pool, only to realize that you forgot your bottle opener. Your recipients will never have to worry about that again with these bottle opener Malibu sunglasses. The frames are made of polycarbonate material and come with UV400 Lenses that provide 100% UVA And UVB Protection. The bottle openers are located on the end of each arm. The sunglasses frames come in 11 different colors so you can choose the perfect one to complement your branding.

4. Sun Bum Day Tripper Kit

Bulk sunscreen is another summer essential, and we absolutely love this gift set from fan-favorite sunscreen brand Sun Bum. The kit includes a 3-oz. bottle of the SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion, a 0.15-oz. tube of SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm, and a 3-oz. bottle of Cool Down Aloe Lotion. Like all Sun Bum products, they are hypoallergenic, cruelty free, vegan, paraben free, gluten free, and reef friendly. The products come in a zipper pouch printed with your logo and the slogan “Good Vibes Only” for the perfect summer aesthetic.

Igloo ® Maddox XL Cooler

5. Igloo ® Leak Resistant Maddox XL Cooler – 42 Can

If you want to get really creative, you can use this cooler as your summer gift basket and arrange the other items inside it. The cooler is made with a leak-resistant, antimicrobial liner that is heat sealed, and the base is made out of material that is easy to clean if it gets dirty. The cooler has a generous 42-can capacity, which is perfect for a summer picnic. It also features a dual-zippered pull handle opening with folding lid for easy access and a dual side grab handle for secure transport when the cooler is fully loaded.

6. Corkcicle® Slim Artican

Upgrade from a disposable koozie with this sleek slim can insulator from Corkcicle. The elongated shape fits seltzers, specialty beers, and other summer beverages and the stainless steel construction will keep them cold for up to three hours. All you have to do is freeze the cooling core case, twist it onto the Artican, and drop a cold beverage in it. The Artican comes in a matte black or printed walnut finish and will be emblazoned with your logo in the bottom corner for a stylish, summery statement.
