Great Ice Cream Gifts to Give Friends This Summer

Summer is officially upon us, and there’s no better time to break out the gelato cups and spoons. If you’re ice cream obsessed, then you love the many ways there are to serve the tasty treat. If you’re looking for gifts to give friends this summer, share your love of ice cream with something delicious everyone can enjoy. Here are some of the most popular frozen gifts that anyone will love.
Ice Cream Shipped to You
What better way to share a love of ice cream than hand choosing some flavors to send to friends and family. A variety of services online have sprung up with multiple ways to ship ice cream to someone. Frozen goods will need to be sent within 48 hours to be enjoyed in time, and there is usually an additional cost for shipping. That’s because these companies need to package the ice cream with some kind of insulation to keep it fresh on arrival.
It almost never arrives melted, but it might not arrive ready to eat either depending on the heat. Sometimes, on particularly hot days, it’s worth it to pay for overnight shipping. Look for packs of different flavors to save money on handmade ice cream, and send the frozen yogurt spoons separately.
Custom-Printed Cups and Spoons
Ordering custom-printed cups isn’t as expensive as you might think. The print can be applied directly to plastic, so the cups will last a long time if they aren’t used in the dishwasher. You can print cups with the name of each person on them, or some kind of cute memory of years gone by.
You can also order gelato cups and spoons in a variety of patterns and designs. You’ll quickly find ice cream cone shapes, cute ice cream themed bowls and even interesting spoons that combine a straw for when the ice cream begins to melt.
DIY Ice Cream
If you don’t want to spend the money on shipping frozen ice cream, then the do-it-yourself alternative will suffice. Kits are available online for a very modest amount of money. The kits usually contain instructions and equipment, the actual ingredients come from the local super market. The process is relatively simple, depending on the device you’re using. If you’re really passionate about ice cream, a hand crank is one of the most effective ice cream makers you can get. It’s all manual, run on elbow grease, but it offers a taste and consistency that is hard to match.
Gelato Products offers free domestic shipping within the continental US, and no minimum orders on gelato cups and spoons.
