If you have a beach lover in the family, then we have some great gift ideas for this holiday season. Here are ten great gifts for the beach lover in the family. Let's get started.
1. Ocean Isle Beach Vacation
We might as well start with the biggest and best, after all, it is Christmas. If you're looking for the ultimate gift for the beach lover, or maybe we should say the beach loving family, look no further than giving the gift of an Ocean Isle Beach vacation. Now we know what you are thinking, does it have to be in the summer? Of course not! Did you know that some the of the best times to visit Ocean Isle Beach are in the late and off season? A beach vacation is probably more affordable then you think. But there is only one way to find out, so if you are looking to give your family the ultimate gift, then give us a call at 800-727-9222 and book your beach vacation today.
2. Give an adventure
They say memories last a lifetime. At the very least they last longer than most gifts you can give. This year is the perfect time to give a gift of a real adventure, and few places have as many adventures as Ocean Isle Beach. Here are just a few:
Stand Up Paddleboarding Lessons
Off/Inshore Fishing Trips
Do any of these sound like fun? If so, check out our previous post: Wild and Crazy Adventures On Ocean Isle Beach, for all the information you need to give the gift of one of these adventures. The best part is you can give these even if you are just visiting for a day, a weekend, or a week. Either way, come to see us on Ocean Isle Beach and makes some memories.
3. Great food and good times
If you have a beach lover on your Christmas list, more than likely you also have a seafood lover on your list. This year why not give the gift of an awesome dining experience here on Ocean Isle Beach. Let's face it, some folks seem to have everything or are just plain hard to shop for. But everyone has to eat and if you are like us, you love a great seafood meal. Ocean Isle Beach has lots of great places to dine, from casual to formal and everything in between. The best part is this gift can be inexpensive to extravagant, you decide!
4. The gift of power
If you are like most of us, you spend a lot of time on your smartphone. From taking pictures to listening to music to updating our social media. There is nothing more frustrating than missing a special picture because your phone battery died. If you know someone like this, who is always finding themselves a little short on battery life, the perfect gift is here in the form of the FosPower charger. This charger is great for the beach because it's waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. You'll never have to worry about running out of power again.
5. Something simple but awesome
Ok, so maybe you just need to find that little stocking stuffer or an office secret Santa gift. When we saw this on the beach this summer we just had to find out where the person got it, of course, the answer was Amazon. But this Beach Umbrella Hanging Hook is pretty amazing. It attaches to your umbrella pole and gives you a set of hooks to hang small items on, especially things you might not like in the sand, and for under $6.00 bucks it is a great inexpensive gift for a beach lover.
6. Zip through the water like a fish
With the underwater Innovative Scuba Baldefish Jet Propulsion, you can be zipping along under the water like something out of a sci-fi movie. With a lithium-ion battery you get up to 120 minutes of underwater fun with this cool little propulsion unit. Sure, it isn't cheap, but it just might be the coolest gift on here.
7. Popup Portable Beach Shade
For those who want a little shade every now and again in a small convenient package, the AirGoods HAIYANLE Pop Up Portable Adjustable Beach Sun Shade Canopy, Instant Outdoors Beach Tent, Mat, Shelter with Carry Case, and yes that is a mouthful, is the perfect solution. Basically, this is a portable mat with a small sunshade that allows you to lay back and relax while having your face covered. Who needs to drag around a huge beach umbrella when you have this?
8. Grill anywhere
The X-Grill is a portable charcoal grill that you can fold up and haul anywhere with ease. It is excellent for those long walks you take by yourself on the beach, just unfold it, throw in some charcoal, and grill some wieners while you enjoy an Ocean Isle Beach sunset. Made from durable electro-plated iron construction, the folding charcoal grill folds up to just 1 inch in thickness when collapsed. The portable X-Grill comes with a chrome plated tri-fold cooking grate, along with a charcoal grate, and measures 21" x 21" x 9" when fully set up.
9. The gift of art
Looking for a way to bring a little bit of Ocean Isle Beach to your home or want to give the gift of it? Why not share a bit of Ocean Isle Beach art. There are loads of great posters, prints, and original artwork that is inspired or reflects Ocean Isle Beach. Several local stores carry beautiful artwork as does Etsy.
10. Sand funnel
This sand funnel allows you to make drawings or structures in the sand using the magic of science. The funnel comes with two containers, one of which you fill with sand, and the other you fill with water. Once combined the sand and water make a gooey paste that spills right out of the tip of the funnel allowing you to create a drawing, write some words, or build some amazing sand castles. This is a winner for the kids in the family who love the beach.
