Here are 5 great choices to give the gift of an unforgettable summer experience.

1.       Outdoor Fun

Many of summer’s priceless moments come from enjoying the great outdoors. The warm weather creates endless opportunities for camping, fishing, sports, and more. If you are looking for a gift for someone who loves days at the lake or weekends in the wilderness, there’s no better choice than an outdoor themed present. Check out our selection of outdoor sporting gift cards and find the perfect outdoor retailer for your gift giving occasion.

2.       Gas Cards

Summer gas prices are always a downer, so why not give the gift of travel? Giving someone a gas card is like giving them a free pass to go wherever they want to go.  Almost everyone can use a gas card, so it’s summer’s most versatile gift. A gas card can be made more personal by including a message telling the recipient that you want them to use it to go on a weekend getaway, or to visit family, or whatever travel opportunity you know that they are dying to pursue. Your friends and loved ones will appreciate the thought that went into your gift of the perfect summer road trip.

3.       Summer Concerts or Sporting Events

Summer is prime time to enjoy a baseball game or an outdoor concert on a beautiful day. With gift cards from TicketsNow, you can let the recipient of your gift choose an exciting event to attend. Whether it’s a concert, sporting event, Broadway play, or comedy show, they will always remember that the experience was all thanks to you. For someone close to you, you can use the gift card to let them pick out an event that the two of you can enjoy together. It’s the perfect date night or bonding activity with someone you care about.

4.       Golf Outing

Golf is a classic hobby to enjoy with friends or loved ones during the warm summer days. If you’ve got someone in your life who lives to golf, give them a golfing gift card so they can pick out some new equipment. To make it even more special, pick a day that you can head out together so that they can test their new supplies out in a round at their favorite course.

5.       Bed and Breakfast Getaway

The perfect gift for newlyweds, a bed and breakfast gift card allows the recipient to choose a getaway from among 4,000 B&Bs across the U.S. and Canada. These gift cards never expire, so they can choose the ideal time to use your gift. It’s a wonderful way to give a travel experience that’s different and unique, and still allow your recipient to make it their own.
