Summertime is here. Time to kick back, relax and enjoy the lazy days ahead. This summer, why not celebrate the season by hosting a summer-themed gift exchange with Elfster? We’ve got plenty of great ideas to get you started. Just add friends and family.

Secret Summer Swaps

Summer Hostess Gifts

Secret Santa gift exchanges aren’t just for Christmas anymore. And Elfster groups all over the world are busy gearing up for the fun and carefree summer season. One group of fitness enthusiasts is getting “Fit, Fierce & Fabulous” as group members exchange inspirational gifts to help each other get beach-ready. Dozens of groups will be celebrating their summer babies’ big days with special packages for their secret pals. And lots of book lovers will Splash Into Summer” with an exchanges of popular e-books and paperbacks—a perfect way to relax at the beach or lounge poolside.

Another group hosting a “Summer Survival Swap” is ready for gifting and describes its exchange like this — “Oh, Summer! Season of sunshine, lip gloss, pedicures, fun drinks, long nights, good reads, arts & crafts, good music! Put together the most creative package you can spending $20 (no more & NO LESS so it’s fun and fair for all!) Wrap & ship it pretty….”  Sounds pretty perfect to us!

Summer Gifts for Kids

One family is using Elfster to help plan an “Unbirthday Gift Exchange” to add a fun twist to their annual get-together. And even though they can’t be together in person, one online community will be hosting a “Hometown Hop,” swapping gifts to represent their own hometown’s unique flavor. No matter what the occasion, Elfster has great summer gift ideas.
