    20 Summery Birthday Gifts You'll Want To Keep For Yourself

    For all the lucky ones who get to celebrate in the summer!

    1. A cold brew maker, so they can make their own icy drinks at home this summer. It'll strain their coffee through an extra-fine reusable filter, so they won't end up with grounds in their glass.

    2. A cute throw blanket that'll brighten up their couch or bed. They can also use it as a picnic blanket, to give them somewhere a little more comfortable than the ground to plant their tush.

    3. This unicorn float that'll probably be the centre of attention at their next pool party. Grab them a pack of rings, too, so y'all can play a game of ring toss using the unicorn's horn.

    4. A picnic set that comes with everything they'll need to enjoy an outdoor spread. It'll make planning for park dates or beach days a heck of a lot easier when it comes to packing for the day.

    5. A vacuum-insulated water bottle that is so stylish, they'll tote it around wherever they go. It's totally leakproof, and will keep their water icy even when it's super hot out.

    6. A Spikeball set that'll give them something to do while they hang in the park with their pals. It's an active two-on-two game that requires "spiking" the ball onto the net so it ricochets toward their opponent, with a few rules that'll make it equal parts fun and challenging.

    7. A metal plant hanger, if they love decorating their space with greenery. You might want to pair it with a trailing plant or succulent, so they can use it right away.

    8. A split-level cheese board that comes with serving utensils nestled into the bottom tier. You might want to hit up your local market and set them up with some delicious charcuterie ingredients, too!

    9. A stylish fanny pack that'll carry all of their go-to items when they don't want to lug around their usual handbag.

    10. A set of giant floral wall decals that'll add a little bit of summer to whatever space they put them in. And taking photos in front of 'em? 10/10.

    11. This insulated bottle and tumblers set that'll keep their summer bevies (for two!) chilled all day long, even on a sweltering afternoon at the beach.

    12. This funky neon light that'll give their apartment a sunny island vibe. Reviewers say it's super vibrant and love that it can be powered by USB or batteries, so they can put it anywhere.

    13. A portable espresso maker, so they can still have their Americano, even when they're off adventuring in the woods. All they'll have to do is scoop their grinds into the filter basket, pour their boiled water into the tank, and press the pump.

    14. This 10-in-1 tool that is colour coded for ~fashion~ and ease of use. They can bring it along on bike rides, or use it for a quick fix that doesn't require busting out their entire toolbox.

    15. A stylish stainless steel watering can that'll save them from throwing water at their plants with a mug. It's got a super-long spout, so they can fully saturate the soil in their beloved herb garden.

    16. A jewellery stand that'll save their go-to summer necklaces from getting tangled up in their jewellery box. They can use it to display their collection of face masks (it's great for air drying them, too!).

    17. An insulated thermos they can bring along on morning hikes and other outdoor adventures. This thing is big, so they'll definitely be able to share it with their partner.

    18. A set of colourful LED wheel lights that'll significantly increase their nighttime visibility (and make them look like a literal rave on wheels). Reviewers say installation is effortless and that the lights are super vibrant.

    19. This wall tapestry that'll bring a little sunshine into their space. It comes with mounting materials, so they won't need to buy extra stuff in order to hang it up.

    20. And finally, a LifeStraw, if they love camping and the great outdoors. It'll filter bacteria, parasites, and microplastics out of contaminated water as it travels through the straw's microfiltration membrane. Plus, it's super light and easy to pack, which makes it the perfect tool for backcountry camping.
