Hello, summertime! Whether you’re hosting friends or family or piling into someone else’s summer spot, it’s always crucial to arrive with a hostess gift in hand! From custom hostess gifts to ready to ship options for on-the-whim gifting inspiration for your host, we’ve got you covered. It’s hard to believe that this time last year we were solely “coastal distancing” and now summer is in full swing! We are so grateful to see our Two Funny Girls community reuniting with family and friends, and celebrating many overdue holidays and milestone moments. So with that in mind, let’s get started! With your travel plans (hopefully) right around the corner, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite gifts to give to your summer host or hostess.
Cut a Slice of Summertime Fun
Our go-to hostess gift is ideal for summer cheese plate spreads. After a long day in the sun, there’s no better way to end the day than around a bonfire with friends and yummy food. With that in mind, we have to start with our custom cutting board – it’s personalized specifically for your host and has rave reviews for being both fun and functional. They can be used for serving summertime meals just as easily as they can be used to spruce up a lake house kitchen corner. They can be personalized with a last name, monogram or fun saying, and we have a variety of sizes available. If you think your host would love this as much as we do, make sure to get your custom order in ahead of your travels. Click here to shop and customize your own!
Keep it Cool on the Water
Ok – if you are shopping for a hostess gift for someone with a lake or beach house, we are officially jealous. We know that means you’ll be partaking in summertime fun on the water, which means these custom insulated coolers are a necessity! Not only are they available in an adorable chambray blue, they are large enough to keep your pre-made cocktails or light bites chilled all day long. These are a great gift for your host or hostess as you can add on a monogram or personalize it however they’d like! We offer a variety of personalized pool bags and beach totes, but this new design is taking the cake this year. Grab a few for meals on the go.
Raise a Glass (or custom cup!)
Some may say we’re famous for creating custom cups – and we can’t blame them! We love a personalized summer cup as gifts for your host this season, and have them available in both styrofoam or reusable plastic. Shop this bestselling design that reads “Welcome to the Lake” or go for our reusable plastic option which can be personalized for poolside cocktails all summer long. These cute summertime cups come in a sleeve of 10, making them the perfect go-to gift for your lake house host. Additionally, they come finished with an adorable matching twist tie and bow – instantly gift-ready!
How fun are these personalized plastic cups for sitting poolside?! We adore this design, and customizing to match your hosts’ last name will make a lasting impression they’ll love. These custom foam cups always make it on our summer hostess gift guide as they are so popular as a gift to your host or yourself! If you’re having company in to visit, they’ll get a kick out of all your personalized party goodies.
No summertime cocktail recipe is complete without a little festive flavor! That’s why we snagged this orange cocktail recipe by Jackson Morgan that’s both delicious and easy to whip up for a crowd. Jackson Morgan Southern Cream is known for flavors that provide a delicious buzz that could easily double as a dessert! Plus, they pair perfectly with any of our summer cup options.

Everyone loves a cold drink on the water – and these custom drink koozies make it easy! We carry these adorable custom summer koozies in standard can sizes. Our super popular slim can options are also available. Shop this fun design or explore the many others we have available.
Coastal Cocktail Napkins
We’re huge fans of no-mess moments when it comes to enjoying your summer getaway. You can purchase these napkins with a custom summer design for cleanup with style. They’re adorable for pairing with happy hour drinks or snacks.
