Independence Day is hands-down the biggest celebrated national holiday of the summer. It’s a great event to gather with your friends and family for a barbecue or picnic and watch the famous firework show.
Independence Day is celebrated every year on the 4th day of July in commemoration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Not everyone knows though, that the Declaration was not signed the same day — it happened almost a month later on August 2. Just a little something you can mention at your family’s barbecue this year if you want to sound like a history buff.
What Do You Need for a 4th of July Party?
But back to the topic. Apart from backyard barbecues and get-togethers, it’s always a great idea to take a beach or lake trip on the 4th of July to enjoy the weather and perhaps watch the fireworks from an unusual spot, while enjoying the nature and tasty homemade food you brought along.
At Mounteen, we put together a collection of items that we hope will make you remember this Fourth of July party for years to come. All of them convey a patriotic spirit and are also great, meaningful, and useful 4th of July gifts. We promise you will use them long after this Fourth of July.
Ready to check them out? Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you the 5 things you need for the best 4th of July celebration ever:
1. 4th of July Wine Tumbler
What is absolutely necessary to truly enjoy your favorite Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc besides the wine itself? Proper drinkware, of course!
Everyone knows that any wine is best consumed cold. With ordinary glasses, the beverage will lose its cool quickly in the July heat. The solution comes in a form of these beautiful heat insulated metal tumblers with lids.
Being ardent wine lovers ourselves, we make sure our wine tumblers stay up to the task of keeping your favorite beverage crisp and cold long after you pour it in.
These 12oz wine tumblers also hold the ideal amount of your favorite drink, allowing you to savor the true taste of your wine without ever breaking off the conversation again to refill your glass.

2. 4th of July Outfits for the Whole Family
Dressing in a patriotic style is not only appropriate on the 4th of July, but is also a great way to express your love and support for the homeland.
This is why lightweight and breathable t-shirts and tank tops are going to be among the most popular apparel categories this summer. We have made some for you too!
And don’t forget about your kids — surely they deserve a nice patriotic outfit too!
Here’s something every baby and toddler would enjoy wearing this summer: a super comfortable onesie and short-sleeved toddler tee, both made of 100% soft cotton and featuring the same cheerful red, white, and blue design.
3. Big 4th of July Chopping Board
To prepare for your ideal barbecue, you will need an ideal chopping board. This would certainly have to be a huge one that will accommodate for all the vegetables, and mushrooms, and other ingredients you will chop, cut, and slice in large quantities.
Better yet if this board would come laser-etched with one of the most precise sayings about the United States ever. Which one is it? “All great change in America begins at the dinner table”, the catchphrase made famous by Ronald Reagan in his Farewell Address to the Nation back in 1989.
So if you think some good and positive change is just what we all need, this large wood cutting board is what you will love.

4. Tea In The Harbor Coffee Mug for Your Favorite Morning Drink
Ever since the Boston Tea Party in 1773, tea has never regained its position as #1 drink in America. Back then everyone was switching to coffee, as it was generally considered a patriotic move.
And although today we don’t usually think that back in time when making a cup of our favorite blend for ourselves, coffee still remains one of the most unifying things across the nation.
For all of you coffee lovers, we made this patriotic coffee mug. It says “I like my coffee black” on one side, while the other side sharply adds “And my tea in the harbor” referring to one of the most patriotic events in American history.

5. Land of the Free Because of the Brave Sign
What can be a better reminder of our patriotism than a huge sign that commemorates the bravery of our fathers and grandfathers in protecting the freedoms of our nation? Especially if it includes the famous line from the national anthem about the land of the free and the home of the brave?
This huge canvas sign features a simple yet elegant design and will blend well with any interior or exterior, reminding you and your guests of the valor of our forefathers.

How to Throw a Good 4th of July Party?
Of course, there are many ways you can make the best out of the Independence Day celebrations. For instance, you can play fun outdoor games with your friends and family or spend some quality time with your kids making amazing patriotic DIY decorations that you will use for years to come.
And to make sure nothing spoils the party for you (and what comes after it), make sure to follow proper social distancing guidelines. Remember, it’s better to be a bit cautious and play it safe than spend a few weeks in a hospital.
