From sprucing up your house with vibrant summer colours to buying those summer essentials for a loved one… A different season means different essentials so pack your big baggy jumpers and boots into that old cupboard that you don’t quite know what’s in the back of, and take a look at these summer must-haves! You’ll be thankful you stumbled across this article.
Time To Make Your House Look Summery!
Cushions and throws make a house feel cosy, homely and comfortable and not just in Winter. Opt for a pattern, such as these palm tree print cushions to switch up your bed or sofa. If you are wanting more intense patterns, then it is a good idea to go for more muted colours or opt for an array of plain but bright cushions.
Photos, art-work and frames are a great way to decorate your home. They allow you to tie everything together within a theme (such as Summer) and can give a focal point to a room. Plus, this is a great alternative to add colour into any room, instead of doing any pain-staking jobs, like painting the house.
So your home interior is nearly summer-ready, but never without a summery fragrance that hits you as you walk through the door! Reid diffusers hold essentials oils which creep up through the reids, leaving your home smelling refreshed and summery throughout the season.
Prepare For Outdoor Drinking & Eating!
Picnics, BBQ’s, garden lunches… The list goes on. When it comes to Summer, we all just love to change things up and eat Al Fresco! So, make sure you stock up on your outdoor eating must-haves for when the sun is shining.
Also, whilst you’re exploring your purchases, don’t settle for those flimsy plastic cups this summer, purchase yourself or a loved one some sturdy, fun and long-lasting cups for the garden, that you can use year on year.
Of course, there are lots of outdoor gifts you can buy, such as cups, plates, water bottles etc… But have you got somewhere to put it all? A lovely outdoorsy gift definitely includes an authentic wicker basket, which is not only nice as a gift but is practical too – You can use it to store other presents and then the recipient can use it in their home.
Keep The Children Entertained
It can be tricky trying to keep entertained, especially in the warm weather – We have all been there, when all the children want to do is sit inside and play on their computer games! Now that Summer is here, it is important to make sure you are highly stocked up to keep them busy.
Gifts like fling rings, walkie talkies and bucket and spade sets are ideal for keeping children active for all hours of the day, allowing them to become tired and ready for bed by the evening.
If your children are mad for bugs and all things nature, then you could consider purchasing unique bug catching kits and magnifying glasses so they can go on the hunt for the creepy crawlies living around your garden.
