TGA Top 5- July 4th Edition

Happy Independence Day in advance!!!! Before I share The Gift Advisory’s Top 5 Gift ideas for the American Independence Day 2020, let us take a little “History Trip”. .

In July 1776, the 13 colonies at the time claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. From that “event” to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence.

As a naturalized citizen of the United States, I have witnessed the celebrations and participated in the festivities, parades, parties, FIREWORKS all the “nine yards”. (There is no July 4th celebration without fireworks 🙂

And for this year’s celebration, I am predicting a somewhat low key situation. This year, unlike the previous years, is happening in the middle of a Pandemic; I am curious about the parades that will still take place and how many people will show up for them but one thing I am certain will happen is CELEBRATION! Definitely in smaller groups, amongst family members and smaller crowds but people will celebrate, and here my Top 5 gift suggestions for the celebrations this year.

1. PATRIOTIC AMERICAN FLAG PARTY FAVORS

This 108 fourth of July Patriotic American Flag Party Favors Bulk Includes: 12 USA Shutter Shade Sunglasses, 72 Fourth of July Temporary Tattoos, 12 Red Blue and White Bead Necklaces and 12 American Folding Fans and will make a great gift this season for your house party. If you are invited as a guest, gifting this would add some sparkle to the party and would serve a party of 12. Would also be great for that barbecue or picnic you will be having this July 4th.

Complete the “party pack” with matching Patriotic face masks; Masks have become a necessity and a symbolic mask like this one will fit perfectly into the theme.

Make the party pack “edgier” by swapping the plastic sunglasses for these patriotic gladiator sunglasses. You will be the coolest “gifter” guaranteed!

2. ICE CREAM MAKER

What is the month of July without ice cream? What is A July 4th party without an ice cream machine? An Ice Cream Maker like this Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker is the perfect gift this season because it is easy to use and is strong enough to make the yummiest gelato, Ice Cream and Yoghurts all summer long.

While you are at it, throw in a recipe book like this Complete Cuisinart frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, Gelato and Ice Cream Maker book that has 100 fun recipes for your giftee to try out, long after the July 4th festivities.

3. PATRIOTIC US FLAG BLANKET

A blanket is a great gift because it can be used for the summer picnics, beach hangouts and can still be used in the home. But a double-sided blanket is even better, especially when it is a Patriotic US Flag Blanket, like this National Flag Throw, Sherpa Fleece Plush Super Soft Cozy Warm Reversible Blanket.

This will make the perfect gift for anyone that is Patriotic to a fault. You know that family member that has a flag hanging on their porch ? Yes that one. This will also be a great gift for a A Veteran.

Want to go a little overboard? Gift this exclusive hand made collapsible storage an MBisAfrican good packaged by The Gift Advisory alongside the blanket. It will make great storage not just for the blanket but also for other goods in the recipients’ home. Did I mention it was collapsible?

Okay, what is a celebration without food? I haven’t seen anyone turn down a food basket especially when it comes to a variety of yummy goodness for everyone to enjoy. A Food basket is always an appreciated gift; A great addition for any kind of party. This weekend, next weekend, whenever.

You can buy an already made Gift basket like the Gulcets Ultimate Gift tower basket or contact a Gift Stylist to curate a basket for you; Customized to perfection with some of your recipient’s favorites tailor-made to your budget.

What is a July 4th celebration without fireworks? An incomplete party! Fireworks are a great gift. As expected, there have been cancellations of lots of large fireworks displays because of COVID 19, Without these attractions, more people than ever are resorting to at-home firework usage. Gifting loved ones the Centennial Fountain XL or any “home use” fireworks would make the perfect ending to the July 4th house party.

Throw in bubbly, Afterall we can’t be eating without “washing it down” with a drink? A bottle of champagne has never hurt anybody and would be perfect “add on” gift not just for the weekend all year round. Making a toast is very important at this time, we have all been through a lot after all and it’s very necessary to make a toast To Love, To Life, To the family and definitely and most certainly to Independence Day!
