Get Out Of There! Gift Ideas To Help You Get Outside This Summer


Working out what you want for your birthday isn’t actually always the easiest thing to do. A lot of us are tempted to just shrug our shoulders and say that we don’t know when our families, friends and partners ask us exactly what we’d like – and then we end up feeling irritated when our birthdays roll around and we end up with a stash of gift cards that, although generous, feel strangely impersonal. If you’re looking for some appropriately summery birthday gift ideas, look no further – here are a few things you could ask for to get you outside and enjoying the warm weather this summer…

Gardening Equipment

If you want to get outside and enjoy the sun, where better to do it than at your own home? Not everyone likes getting out in the garden, but if you’d like to learn more then why not ask for some basic gardening equipment to help you find out more about your own back garden? Even if you aren’t the sort of person who’d enjoy planting flowers, you could consider looking into vegetables – there’s nothing better than growing food that you and your family can enjoy! If you’d rather relax in your garden than work in it, you could always ask for a bigger gift of a new BBQ – that might just produce some delicious feasts this summer that you can enjoy alongside a refreshing glass of Pimm’s.

Fitness Equipment

This time of year, the gym just won’t cut it – what’s the point in going into a dark sweaty building full of electric lighting when you could be outside under the sun instead? Utilise your local park for activities and exercise – and ask your nearest and dearest for gifts like a new tennis racket and balls, new running shoes and maybe even a new yoga mat that you can use in your own back garden to get limber and flexible and to increase your core strength.

Picnic Equipment

No, we’re not talking a wicker hamper or plastic knives and forks (although they’re also useful) – we’re talking the sorts of things that you’ll want to take to the park with you so that you can have a really good laugh with your friends on the hottest days of the year. You could get a Segway to whizz around on – if you’re not sure what they are, you can find swegway on facebook – or a new football so you can all have a fantastic kick-about.

Days Out

Finally, you could always ask for theme park tickets or day passes so that you can take your family out for a really fun day at a waterpark or theme park, complete with roller coasters, haunted houses and plenty of ice cream in the middle of the day. You could also take your family to your nearest beach to enjoy the summer and maybe even dip your toes in the water to celebrate your birthday. Most people find that they’re much happier asking for experiences as gifts instead of objects – after all, the memories will last forever.
