Women's Beach-Inspired Gift Ideas

Posted on: 11 February 2020

If a special woman in your life loves the beach or is planning on taking a trip to the ocean in the near future, treat her to a gift that celebrates her interests. You'll have plenty of beach-inspired items from which to choose, including sun-protective swimwear and other outdoor gear.

A beach-inspired gift is appropriate for almost any type of special event or occasion, such as birthday parties, holidays, anniversary and graduation celebrations, and bridal showers. High-quality swimwear will also make a thoughtful wedding gift if the couple is taking an oceanfront honeymoon.

Depending on your gift-giving budget, you can treat your friend or loved one to just one beach-themed gift or several different pieces. Design a one-of-a-kind gift basket filled with the recipient's favorite things. Choose a durable basket that she can use again, such as white on a picnic.

Here are some present ideas to get you started:

1. Beach Towel

A beach towel is a must-have item for any water enthusiast, so treat her to the best one that you can afford. Look for a highly absorbent towel that's oversized and soft for the optimum convenience and comfort. 

Choose a towel in the recipient's favorite colors, such and blue or yellow, or one that features a fun, whimsical pattern. Some ideas include geometric shapes, stripes, chevron patterns, and designs such as dogs, cats, tropical birds or plants, and flowers.

You can also order a beach towel with her name or monogram through an online retailer. Roll the towel neatly and place it into a gift basket with other beachy items, such as sunglasses or a hat.

2. Swimwear

If you know the woman's size and style preference, surprise her with a piece of swimwear. Choose a swimming suit featuring sun protection properties, such as built-in titanium dioxide. This can provide a SPF of 50 or more, which is much needed in a tropical climate.

Women's sun protective swimwear also usually features a lightweight, breathable, and fast-drying fabric. They come in everything from bikinis and one-piece suits to surf gear. Round out the gift with a bottle of sunscreen for the areas the suit doesn't protect.

3. Comfort Items 

Make the recipient's trip to the beach even more enjoyable with a comfort item or two, such as a hammock or a stainless steel water bottle for keeping beverages icy cold. A durable, waterproof beach bag will keep all of her essentials organized and at hand. A handy bag will make the trek to and from the beach easier, and you can also have it personalized with her name or monogram.
