  • Haribo Gummi candy
  • Jolly Rancher
  • SmartSweets lollipops

  • Mike & Ike sour watermelon
  • Wiley Wallaby licorice

  • Simply watermelon juice
  • Minute Maid watermelon
  • Arizona
  • V8 Splash watermelon cherry

  • Bai kula watermelon
  • Sparkling Ice strawberry watermelon

Non-food items

Any items with a watermelon print or shaped to look like watermelon will work great in this gift. Check out stores like Dollar Tree, Walmart, or Target during the summertime. Craft stores may also have seasonal watermelon-themed items.

I used a watermelon-print kitchen towel I found at Dollar Tree, as well as watermelon-shaped sunglasses.

This mug is adorable. Simply fill with treats or other small items and you’re good to go!

Any of these socks would be a fun addition (and who knew watermelon was such a popular print for socks?!).

You can often find household and beauty products that are watermelon scented or themed, like:

How cute and perfect is this potholder?! Pair it with this watermelon spatula.

If your gift recipient is a gardener, you could even include a packet of watermelon seeds.

Gift container ideas

I found a red utensil caddy at Dollar Tree that worked perfect as my “basket” for this watermelon gift. Here are some other container or basket options:

  • I think these jelly bags make the cutest baskets for gifts! The rose pink color definitely says watermelon to me. You might be able to find similar baskets for cheaper at local stores during the spring/summer.
  • These goodie bags are perfect for group gifts or party favors (they even come with “one in a melon” stickers!)
  • Clear treat bags work great, but you might as well go with these watermelon ones.
  • A mason jar makes a great gift container. Leave it as is to let your watermelon gift show through, or paint the jar pink and green to look like a watermelon.
  • Any pink, red, or green container will complement your watermelon gift items. Dollar Tree will be the least expensive, usually, so I’d start there.

Tips for printing: Make sure your printer settings are set to scale 100% and print at a high quality. For best results, print on white cardstock.

Once printed, you can use a paper trimmer or scissors to cut the tags out. Punch a hole at the top of the tag with a hole punch and tie to your gift with ribbon, baker’s twine, or yarn.
