Summer Birthday Gift Ideas

We don’t know about you, but here at BearHugs we didn’t see a summer like this coming!

Here in Sheffield, home of BearHugs HQ, it’s been hotter than it’s been in years. And it’s not just one or two days, we’ve had weeks like this!

We think that sometimes it’s harder to find gifts for summer birthdays (or maybe it’s just hard to think when you’re sweating!) so we’ve compiled some of our favourite summery items to help you build the perfect summer birthday BearHug.

1) A great book

Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s too hot to even move. Whether it’s lounging around in the sun, or taking a break in a cool spot, nothing says summer like relaxing with a great book.

Our summer recommendations are: This beautiful V&A Edition of Wind in the Willows, Waves by Jared A. Carnie and the Creative Kindness Journal by Emily Coxhead. Or for a little one, we think you can’t do better than the Little People, Big Dreams series.

2) ‘Adventure Is Calling’ Pin Badge or Scout Patch

Because summer is for adventures! Both the pin badge and the patch are created by The Level Collective, a wonderful independent Outdoor Apparel company supplying beautiful bespoke clothing and outdoor accessories.

3) Mosley London Patterned A5 Notebook

Summer is the perfect time for planning! This lovely notebook, available in a variety of fun colours and designs, is exactly what you need to jot down all your big plans.

4) Pastel Passport Holder

The most fun way to carry your passport on those summer trips! These lovely pastel faux leather passport holders with a pretty multi-coloured stripe lining are printed with fun travel related slogans.  

5) Patterned Slogan Compact Mirror

We’ve got a range of pretty little compact mirrors that are perfect for taking away with you, whether it’s on holiday or just to pop in your bag when you are on the go! Each mirror has an inspiring message embossed on the front and finished with a beautiful pattern on the reverse.
