This rainy spring is winding down and sunshine is finally on our horizon. Summers are short but sweet in Maine. Like most northern residents, we like to take advantage of the good weather when we get it! But we are still hard at work and always looking for ways to improve. Living full-time in "Vacationland" gives us all the tools we need to find the perfect gifts for fun in the sun.
This is a popular season for giving, particularly in the corporate world. Mid-year is an ideal time to show a little employee and client appreciation. With so many people taking trips and planning activities, a thoughtful warm-weather gift is highly appreciated. Focusing on a specific experience is a must and food-centric gifts are always a hit. We have had great success with grill-themed projects, including aprons, kitchen tools and all kinds of rubs/sauces for shared meals al fresco. And we never miss an opportunity for dessert! What could be more fun than receiving all the fixings for a decadent ice cream sundae? A gift sure to please those young and old.
A number of clients request items geared towards the great outdoors. Camping and hiking materials are very popular. In those instances, the main focus is on function, with a hint of luxury. We love a good "glamping" expedition. But let's not forget about the beach! It's so fun putting together a custom tote bag filled with everything you could need for an afternoon by the shore. And if that sunny destination isn't close by, a road trip box can be especially advantageous for those making a lengthy drive. Emergency items, snacks and car-friendly entertainment go a long way to improve travel days.
