Luckily, this 4th Of July Gifts of our favorite gift ideas will help you find something that will make your friends and family feel celebrated.
4th Of July Gifts
So, what are you going to give your friends for the 4th of July? If you’re looking to spice things up and present them with something more memorable than a bottle of wine, consider these tips for making your 4th Of July Gifts stand out.
If you don’t know what to gift them, think about their hobbies. If they love reading, consider giving them a custom bookmark or subscription box of books all about the United States! If they love knitting, give them some patriotic yarn colors and maybe an American flag pattern or two. Try not to go too overboard with these ideas; while it’s important that your gift reflects your friend’s interests, it should also be thoughtful and special in other ways.
Just like you want your gifts to reflect the recipient’s interests, how much money you spend on them should also be tailored to how well you know them. This can get tricky when it comes to figuring out how much is too much—and remember that just because one person may appreciate a $300 scarf does not mean that everyone will. For most occasions (including birthdays), etiquette experts recommend spending three times more than what the host spent on dinner per guest—but this can vary depending on whether or not the party has been inexpensively catered from Costco by someone who works there part-time in exchange for free samples (something my college roommates did once and were very proud of). Consider how many times you’ve seen each other and whether or not they gave you a gift recently as well before deciding how much money is appropriate! It would be nice if we could all just agree that friendship is priceless but unfortunately society doesn’t work that way so here’s my advice: if I were giving this particular guest at our hypothetical barbecue anything else besides food/drink/paper plates/napkins/silverware as their main contribution then yes I probably would have spent $30+ on their present because I’m asking people over specifically because I want us all to have fun together.
Fireworks Hotel Deals
If you’re looking to make your 4th of July special, hotel deals with fireworks can be a great way to get the best view and experience. Whether it’s a firework show right on the property or one nearby, there are many hotels that offer special promotions for the 4th of July.
If your priority is getting a good deal at an amazing hotel so you can stay in luxury while watching stunning fireworks, look for hotels with firework shows on site. For example, The Drake Hotel offers rooms starting at $160 per night. Its annual rooftop viewing party has private viewing areas with multiple food and beverage options available for purchase. You’ll also get access to exclusive seating areas along Chicago’s lakefront as well as other amenities like free Wi-Fi, fitness center usage, and discounts on certain dining options.
On the other hand, if you already know where you want to go for fireworks but need a place to stay, check out any local hotels near where the firework displays will be taking place—this year might be different due to COVID-19 closures, so check local sources for details about how best to view them. For instance, if you’re planning on visiting Boston this 4th of July and want somewhere close to Copley Square (where most of the city’s firework display happens), consider staying at The Lenox Hotel which offers rooms starting at $159 per night during its holiday weekend sale! This beautiful hotel has an excellent location right downtown; its luxurious decor is perfect whether you’re celebrating America’s birthday or just looking (
4th Of July Weekend Getaway Ideas
Have you considered a 4th of July getaway this year? There are many benefits to celebrating Independence Day with a vacation. First, it’s a three day weekend, and who doesn’t love that? Second, the weather is usually warm, but not too hot (unless you’re planning on going somewhere in the desert). Third, it can be difficult to figure out what to do over the fireworks-filled holiday—a trip will allow you to save yourself the trouble and enjoy some quality time with your family and friends instead.
You should also consider where you want to go. Are you looking for something more low-key or would you like something a little more exciting? Would you rather stay close by or would you like to experience something entirely new? If it’s not one of your priorities, are there any places to which your roommate has been dying for an excuse for the two of you to take a road trip?
Once these questions have been answered and the location determined, remember that lodging is an important consideration. Do all members of your party require their own bed or are some willing to sleep on air mattresses (which can be rented)? Are there any amenities that are absolutely essential (e.g., air conditioning) or those which would greatly enhance your stay (e.g., pools)? Is there anything nearby in case someone gets sick or injured while away from home?
After taking care of logistics such as lodging and transportation arrangements, try making plans for activities during your stay. Are there any specific sights that absolutely must be seen before leaving town again? What kinds of things does everyone enjoy doing together: spending time at parks/ beaches/ museums/ shopping malls/ etc.? What kinds of foods does everyone want eat: do they all agree on traditional American cookout fare or is there one person who would prefer Chinese food every night because they live in small town America where Chinese food isn’t readily available?
