The holidays are near and gift giving is one of our greatest joys in life! Although you may not be thinking about the beach in November, your beach-loving family member definitely is! Why not give them a sunny surprise this winter? Here are five gifts sure to put a smile on your beach lover’s face.

1.) We’re thinking big here, but a weekend condo stay! Now, this gift is probably reserved for a spouse, child, immediate family member… or maybe it’s not, if you’re the most generous friend ever! (If so, can we be friends?)

2.) A personalized beach towel and stainless steel tumbler, two necessities for a successful beach day!

Sunset in Orange Beach3.) A gift certificate to one of our cruises. We’ve got options from a dolphin cruise to a kayak adventure to a sunset cruise. Our excursions are always a fun surprise and a great way to enjoy friends, family and the gulf!

4.) A beach scene painting from one of our local artists! The Gulf Shores/OBA area is full of talent and coastal art is amazing. Give a piece of the beach for your friend to admire year ‘round.

5.) A new beach bag or cooler! This is something your beach lover has probably not replaced in years, so they’ll appreciative you thought to give them something new and useful.

What do you think you’ll gift your favorite beach goer with this season?
