Let’s face it, you can’t take a beach vacation without coming back with a gift for the family, friends, in-laws, and the dog and cat. Who says it has to come from the place you visited? Or maybe you have someone that just bought a home on the beach, for a vacation retreat or maybe to live permanently. Or perhaps you live far from the ocean now and just want some mementos to remind you of home or past adventures.
There’s lots of reasons to be in the market for beach and nautical themed gifts, and lucky you, there’s no lack of affordable treasures to choose from, to fit anyone’s taste and imagination.
Beach Gifts for Everyone
Wall-hanging prints of exotic places or whimsical depictions of beach scenes are always popular and liven up any room, especially in the bathroom. You can also choose authentic reproductions of real, famous establishments on legendary beaches, like the storied crab shack on the pier, or the historic ale house that the whaling captains used to frequent between their years-long voyages.
Keeping Drinks Fresh
Totes and beach bags are always appreciated, and they now have some that can keep a complete collection of adult beverages and the mixers tidily packed and cold. An don’t forget the coasters to keep the rings off of the tropical-style serving tray.
Fun and Practical Gifts
Don’t forget the traditional straw beach hat, with its broad rim to protect from the damaging rays of the sun. And to keep it in good shape and off of the floor, pick up a cast iron ocean themed coat hanger.
And then of course there’s beach themed key chains, mugs, and t-shirts. For the in-laws of course.
