Sweet Summer Spa Gift Baskets for Women!

comments 0

Summer is in full swing, with ‘flip flop weather’ officially carrying into the evening almost every day of the week. Most of us are spending as much time as possible in front of a fan, basking in air conditioning, or appreciating some relaxing, rejuvenating time poolside or lounging on a beach (the lucky ones!) Most of us are also spending less time shopping than we do any other time of year. After all, who wants to climb inside a hot car and take a trek to the mall when the temps are holding steady in the 90s and there’s iced tea begging to be sipped by the water? Not me! And chances are good that it’s not you, either.

So what’s a guy or gal to do when they need an awesome present but don’t want to wander from store to store in the stifling heat, or waste an afternoon that could be enjoyed catching some sun on the deck? Send along one of the awesome summer gift baskets from Bisket Baskets, of course! Let’s look at two seasonal spa selections she’s sure to love…

Watermelon Themed Gift Basket: The ‘summeriest’ of all summer fruits, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who can resist a sweet slice of watermelon. And not only does this fruit taste amazing, but it smells oh-so-fresh as well. Our ‘Sweet Scent of Watermelon’ gift set is as adorable as it is useful, packed with a colorful watermelon dishtowel and watermelon hand soap and lotion, which are tucked inside a chrome plated reusable sink caddy. Great for birthdays, hostess gifts, ‘thank you’ gifts, or just because, this brings all the sweet with none of the seeds!

Tranquil Bath & Body Spa Gift Basket: This indulgent basket truly has it all – everything she’ll need to relax in a much-needed bath at the end of an exhausting summer day! Swimming in the scent of sweet pea, you’ll find shower gel, body lotion, bar soap, body butter and foot cream. And if her tootsies need a little extra pampering all their own, our exhilarating peppermint foot soak will get the job done with the help of the included foot brush – bye-bye rough heels! We round out this lovely lineup with a sumptuously soft satin eye mask and hair towel so she can drift into dreamland peacefully post-pampering.

Whether attending an outdoor bash at a friend’s home or an annual family festivity, there’s no better way to say ‘thanks for being a great host’ than with summer gift baskets from! Bringing a gift to an invited party is a unique, gracious and respectful gesture for the party’s host as well as the other guests.

With a large selection of appropriate and thoughtful summer gifts baskets available from, finding the perfect one doesn’t have to be a chore. If you’re attending a 4th of July party this season, consider bringing one of the following summer gift baskets for the hosts, or even to share amongst all the guests:

Great Hostess Gifts Under $25: Perfect for Memorial Day Get-Togethers!

Have you been fortunate enough to receive an invite to a Memorial Day get-together? We hope you have! For as magical as Christmas is, and as festively fun as Halloween, there’s something special about coming together on holidays that honor the many brave men and women who have made our country the uniquely wonderful and free place it is today.

While many observe Memorial Day’s meaning by visiting cemeteries and memorials, it has increasingly become a day to gather together with family and friends for a relaxing day of eating and simply enjoying each other’s company. Of course, there is always the option of observing Memorial Day both ways, dedicating time to those we have lost as well as those we are blessed to still have with us.

If you will be attending a cookout or indoor Memorial Day celebration this year and are stumped over what to bring along as a hostess gift, we have some affordable options in mind that can be saved for another day, or used right away! Here’s a few of our top selections…

Country Living Blue Ribbon Sweet BBQ Sauce – Richly sweet, smokey and spicy, this generously-sized bottle of barbeque sauce will be the best thing that ever happened to chicken, ribs and more!

Gourmet Popcorn Gift from Colorado Kernels – Gourmet popcorn has never been hotter than it is now, due in large part to the decadent variety of options available, like those found in this popcorn gift set! One of our favorite fellow Colorado businesses, this gift is packed with popped perfection from Colorado Kernels. Flavors include: Caramel, Aspen Gold Toffee and Mile High Pecan. In other words, Yum, Yum and Yum!

Vineyard Cookie Bouquet – Available with your choice of 3, 5, 7, 9 or 12 cookies, these hand-decorated indulgences are more than just pretty – they’re oh-so-delicious! Whipped up in flavors of Honey Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Sugar, and Lemon Sugar, each is a memorable dessert unto itself. Your host or hostess is sure to hide these away from the kiddos so they can savor every last morsel!
