Rejoice in the holiday spirit in the middle of summer with these festive Christmas in July gift ideas. Perfect for hosting parties or shopping for friends and family alike, there are lots of creative solutions to select from!

Gourmet Gifts

Although gifts may not be given out as frequently as on December 25, Christmas in July is still an enjoyable mid-year celebration for many families and friends. It provides the ideal excuse to get together over a meal, exchange presents, play gift-giving games such as Secret Santa or White Elephant and set up an outdoor Christmas tree with lights and decorations!

Gourmet gifts make great Christmas in July gift ideas, particularly for those who enjoy entertaining. A hamper filled with quality gourmet ingredients is sure to impress, or take it one step further and put together a Christmas in July themed hamper with chocolates, wine, cheese, fruit and biscuits – or all three!

Personalised Christmas in July gifts are an ideal way to give something unique and personal this summer. From custom mugs, hand-painted jewellery, handmade body scrubs or art wall prints – thoughtful presents will be much appreciated. A gag present can also be an entertaining way to show your appreciation but remember it’s essential that any jokey gifts remain lighthearted and respectful when given to colleagues or family members.

Tech gadgets such as fitness trackers or smart speakers make great practical presents; or for foodies, a cookbook and apron will surely be appreciated as gifts! Or why not add something fun for all members of the family, such as board games?

Experience Gifts

When giving experience gifts as a Christmas in July present, there are several possibilities available to you. From something shared between both you and the recipient such as travel or dining out together to subscription boxes or spa visits for individual use – each experience gift offers something memorable!

Make something homemade this holiday season as another memorable Christmas in July gift – from cookbooks and calendars, to vanilla extract made in your own kitchen! Homemade presents always demonstrate your thoughtfulness towards those you give it too, and starting now gives plenty of time for completion by December.

Put together a summer-themed hamper or basket as the ideal Christmas in July gift idea. Include items that will help them enjoy their summer, such as pool floats, sidewalk chalk, sunglasses and nail polish – or add snacks and beverages for an enjoyable picnic basket experience – perfect for outdoor adventures like beach visits.


Who wouldn’t enjoy getting into the Christmas spirit all year round? Extraordinary toys make great Christmas in July gifts! Choose from adorable stuffed animals like reindeers or Santa’s helper hats, board books that inspire play-based learning, children’s kitchen sets that spark imaginative play, or humorous onesie/burrito blanket combinations sure to bring laughter and make their holiday even brighter!

Small Christmas tree decorations and ornaments make a thoughtful present for those who enjoy decorating all year long. Choose from themed ornaments like snowy owls, reindeers, cat or dog figurines or even something fun like salt dough handprint ornaments for everyone in the family to make together!

Christmas in July can also be an excellent opportunity to get ahead on your holiday shopping. If you’re hosting a Secret Santa gift exchange, our handy Gift Finder could help you discover popular presents likely to bring delight – plus add any favorites directly into Elfster Wishlist for easy sharing among others!

Personal Care Gifts

Winter can be harsh on skin, so homemade body scrub or manicure and pedicure gift sets make great presents in July for both men and women alike. A cute mason jar filled with treats decorated with ribbons, sprays, picks or printed labels such as this “for your mistletoes” label would make an attractive presentation.

Luxurious pool floats have become an increasingly popular trend and make great gifts for Christmas in July. Choose tropical-themed options like flamingo or swan floats or add festive flare with angel or Santa hat designs floating on the surface – an outdoor Christmas in July party would also benefit greatly from having one.

Make a summer tree even more vibrant by swapping out traditional red and green ornaments with sea shells or marine life themed decorations for something truly different like palm trees. For added style points, opt for one that features flowers instead.

Charity organizations often struggle to maintain donations after Christmas; thus they need help throughout the summer as well. Reach out to senior centers near your community to see if there’s anything you can do to give back – even small gifts and encouraging words will have an incredible effect on those aged 85+ who live there.
