There are many opportunities to get out and enjoy the hot summer days. Our weekends are packed with parties, holidays and many other celebratory events that fill our calendars. I always say, there is always a reason to give a thoughtful gift (even if it’s not from a gift basket), so here are a few of my personal favorites to give during this time of the year. These items are great for hostess gifts and many different occasions, and you may just find a few for yourself.
