Personalized S’more Gift Box
This is one of my favorite gifts for the lake house for families. You can personalize the box, skewers, mugs, and a giant serving tray. If you are going to spend the evenings at a lake house, this set will help create memories as you argue how burnt a marshmallow should be. Charcoal black is the answer, by the way.

Croquet is fun for the whole family. It gives kids and adults something great to do when it is too cold to swim. You can set it up anywhere and it comes with everything you need to play. It will provide lake house fun for a lifetime.
Bloody Mary Gift Set
The best thing about hanging out at the lake house is that you get to stay up late and then wake up with a spicy beverage of choice on the porch. This Bloody Mary gift set looks MUCH fancier in person than in the picture and it tastes amazing. It comes with two different Bloody Mary mixes, spicy vegetables, bitters, and Bloody Mary salt. The presentation is so beautiful that I have bought it twice for other people and once for myself. It’s so good!
